    Thumbs up Skyrim Special Edition

    Some console footage coming out now. It actually looks quite nice:

    Looks amazing indeed, but nothing more than graphical improvements added, which is IMO useless

    I would never play skyrim without mods, the base game is just bleh.

    In my opinion the better graphics + mod support for consoles makes it worth it. There are already some decent mods on the Xbox page and more will be added. As primarily a console gamer (apart from WoW) this makes me happy.

    Really, I've been hoping they'd come out with the next game in the series, but I may play this anyway. It's been about 5 years since I played the original now.

    How tastes differ. With Bethesda games, I usually don't touch mods till I am bored with the out-of-the-box experience. That meant mods after two or three hours of Oblivion and none after 150 hours of Skyrim.

    Depending on how much changed on PC I will either finish my old savegame or start from scrap. Certainly looking forward to it.

    My modded Skyrim still looks a lot better than Special Edition

    Sure, but the game looking good and being able to use mods on consoles is the big draw.

    Crazily overpriced at $60. How can they expect people to pay that much when other PS3 remasters give you 3 games for that price (bioshock, uncharted)? I'll wait for $19.99.

    Because Skyrim. And because Bethesda. (And yes, the price is stupid.)

    Any word yet if they are increasing the Mod limit or the Script limit?

    Yeah, I'm fairly sure that many don't, thus why Bethesda is going to profit like hell from this.

    Well yeah. PS4 and XB1 players will want Skyrim remastered especially when it will have mods. Easy profit right there. Meanwhile I get it on PC for free

    I meant the joke.

    As for the game from my understanding I will be getting it for free since I own skyrim+ all dlc on pc.

    I'll probably give my free copy of SE a try, but I don't think I'll be playing it much until most of the mods I play with get ported to the SE. Which will probably be a few months to a year or two depending on the mod.

    Sure, same as me and I paid 10€ for the original game + all dlc.

    The joke is that there will be a fuck ton of people paying 60 bucks for a 5 year old game just because of a fresh coat of paint and to have a limited (as far as I know) access to modding, meanwhile many of them spend time in PC VS Consoles pointless online discussions telling others that PC gaming is just too damn expensive compared to consoles =S

    I think you are trying to put 2 things together that have no actual correlation.

    ... Or maybe it’s you who just can’t see it.

    Look, I honestly don’t want to turn this into a “PC master derp thread”, everyone should just play on whatever they feel more comfortable with, still many feel the need to justify their choice and actually convince others that their choice, is the best choice.

    One of the most commons arguments I seen from people who primarily use consoles to play video games is that consoles are cheaper than PCs, well in a sort of way, yes, consoles are probably cheaper than most medium end PCs, yet you won’t be gaming with just the console itself, peripherals, video game prices, xbox live/psn subscription costs… if you take all that stuff into account, you’ll probably realize that as costs go, in the long run it’s not that different from each other =/

    All that said, I believe that if someone is willingly to pay 60$ for a 5 year old game, just because of a reskin (that’s is probably worse than many reskins currently at the Nexus) and for a more limited version of modding than the one existent in the PC version for all these years it’s probably because the price is not really that much of a big deal for them as long as it’s something they like… kind of rendering the “but it’s cheaper” argument pointless, of course this is just how I see it.
