With the up coming release of Skyrim, and with Todd Howard [Bethesda] stating he doesn't see why user made content can't be used on consoles, as it does work, and the only real losers are the gamers themselves, do you think MS are unnecessarily stopping their gamers from enjoying content that PC users have enjoyed for years?
Now, I';m not advocating for the use of mods that give online players an advantage over other players, as i actually fully support MS stance on this particular type of modding, but stopping people from accessing single player, offline content just strikes me as a money grabbing exercise.
Sony are slowly warming to the idea, after all, LBP 2 allows users to up load and share their creations and Sony are also open to Valve allowing their fans access to this sort of material too. 'Tis strange the dev's themselves - BioWare, Beth and Valve to name but 3, have no real issues with their console games being modded and as such allow console users to discuss and create content, content, that if you're found to be using will get you a lifetime ban because MS don't like the idea of people creating their own playable content.
Like i said, I fully support MS with modded content if it's being used online as to gain an advantage, but don't agree with their overall stance on the matter.
