'The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim' (ALL) Possibly Bringing PC Mods To Consoles

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance.

Bethesda producer Todd Howard revealed in a recent interview that the developer/publisher is currently talking to both Microsoft and Sony to see if they can work out a way to bring PC mods to the PS3 and Xbox 360, saying “We'd like to see it happen, because it works, it's how we made the game. I think it's something really cool about what we do, but 90 per cent of our audience is on the consoles, so 90 per cent of our audience can't even see this thing. So if we can solve that we'd like to."

While previous attempts by Epic to bring Unreal mods to the Xbox 360 have failed, the PS3 version did get mods for the shooter, so it will be interesting to see if Microsoft has changed its stance since.
