  • Skyrim and GTA5 are the two games that won’t stop releasing over and over and over

    • No truer words have ever been spoke

    • I know Skyrim is everywhere, but it’s amusing to see new releases like Quake and this come to PlayStation after Phil deeply insinuated that Bethesda was dead on PlayStation other than already released games and Deathloop/Ghostwrite.

      Again, ppl will downplay this, but it’s still a new release coming to PlayStation. It counts for something and shows a willingness to release certain titles on PlayStation.

      Please, don’t flip flop the definition of legacy game now. I remember when everyone swore legacy meant TESO and Fallout 76. Now it means remasters…

    • What a joke. How many times are they going to sell us the same game? Now that Microsoft owns them I imagine many more. I also expect far more creation club disgrace and MTX, subscriptions, etc. Have you guys seen the egregious MTX and subscriptions in fallout 76? ESO? Bethesda is a travesty. They’ve turned into trash.

      It’s also funny how this is the second straight new Bethesda release coming to Playstation when Phil explicitly implied that would no longer be the case. I wouldn’t touch this trash if it was free.

  • Are you kidding me. Please just let this game die in peace.

    • I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is where i started… 𝗪𝘄𝘄.Income200.𝗰𝗼𝗺

  • Not even a PS5 version. lmfaoooo ANOTHER PS4 version with BC on PS5.

  • If it was a PS5 version I would but for the 5th time. But PS4 locked at 30fps 🤮🤮🤮 no thanks.

    • I believe there was a console mod that unlocks 60fps. But doing so will disable trophies.

    • There is a free next gen upgrade FYI. This blog didnt mention that and made it sound like it was just BC. I just watched the Bethesda reveal to make sure.

      So free next gen upgrade, 3 free pieces of creation club content.. them for the other 500 creation club elements u can upgrade to anniversary edition.

    • The last Bethesda game for PS4 ever?

  • Otra edición mas? !!!!!!!me la llevooooo!!!!!

  • People keep buying this, so the milking continues.

  • If there is some sort of importing/exporting of saves between this and Skyrim VR, I’ll buy it in a heartbeat. I very much want to alternate between 2D and VR.

  • This is a joke right? You are re-re-re-re-re-re-releasing Skyrim, and it’s just the PS4 version again, not even a native PS5 game??? And knowing full well that ES6 is never coming to PS5, you still have the nerve to mock PS owners like this?

    Do NOT buy this garbage, don’t give them a penny.

    • Free next gen upgrade but blog failed to mention. Not sure if it’s a native PS5 version, or just unlocked frame rates, etc for PS4.. but at the very least you will get improvements, for free. Plus 3 free creations.

    • I’m going to give them so many pennies and buy it just to spite you

  • Those of us who have the VR version can we get the improvements?

  • How did you forgot to mention It will be a FREE upgrade for people who already own Skyrim?

  • Wouldn’t the eleventh anniversary be even more profitable.
    Btw, I’ve decided to love Bethesda when they discover decent inventory management programs. Just a simple dream of mine.

    • Something doesn’t seem right about the concert part. I would love to attend the concert live in person, but saw that neither the Alerxandra Palace Tearter nor the London Symphony Orchestra have this on their event schedules. Both are have different events scheduled that day and does not even mention this event.

  • 1. Have they fixed all the bugs in this version?
    2. Having bought this game 2 times already, will I need to buy it again?
    3. If this title hasn’t been fixed since its debut on PS3 then I ask that it be treated like CyberPunk 2077!
    4.Are you going to improve mod support on the PS5 release?
    5.Why are they allowed to release a second PS4 version on PS5 when I can probably already play the PS4 version I bought digitally on my PS5!?

    2 console generations and they didn’t fix quest breaking bugs! That’s 9 years longer than CyberPunk 2077 was given before it was allowed to return.

  • Useless upgrade if it doesn’t support ps5 native.

    • I’m excited for this. I assume the Creation Club content is new content. New content has been delayed twice due to covid and it’s been said that there is a ton of it, and Bethesda were even considering releasing it in waves. The anniversary edition seems to just be a glorified Creation Club bundle, so Bethesda must considered their existing Creation Club customers who already bought much of the older content. Though it’s fine if some old content is sprinkled in as long as the new content is worth the price.

      Hope we get a PS5 upgrade for Skyrim VR! Even if all Bethesda did was increase draw distance, that would go such a long way, but faster loading seems like a given.

    • Lol didn’t mean to reply to a comment

  • Comes out the same day as GTA 5 remastered ps5, assuming nothing gets delayed.

  • Something doesn’t seem right about the concert part. I would love to attend the concert live in person, but saw that neither the Alerxandra Palace Tearter nor the London Symphony Orchestra have this on their event schedules. Both are have different events scheduled that day and does not even mention this event.

  • Microsoft should charge a tenner, or heck let’s say 30 quid, for the upgrade for PlayStation users only, since that’s the standard practice we’ve come to expect.

    And I’m seriously not joking, I would be fine with them doing it because nobody would be allowed to complain about it that defends Ghost of Tsushima’s expensive lazy PS5 native port.

    • The ps5 version isn’t 30 if you want the iki expansion that’s 20 but if you want the ps5 upgrade and you have the dc then it’s 10

    • What are you on about? There’s literally nothing new on ps5 than a frame rate boost on this. The ps5 version of GoT comes with the expansion content and has full 3D audio implementation, haptic feedback , improved character models, higher resolution and frame rate.

    • If wonderful Microsoft actually added native PS5 support, a free multiplayer mode with continuous content, fixed the egregious bugs, and had no MTX in the game I’d have no issue if they asked for $10.

      If they added a huge story based expansion I’d have no issue if they asked for $20 more.

      Do you understand why Sucker Punch earned that $10? Or do you want to continue defending the abhorrent milking of Skyrim and yet another PS4 re-release of the game. Third PS4 release of the same broken Skyrim.

      Have you seen the subscriptions, premium currency, and prices for creation club points/subs in other Bethesda games? Fallout 76, TESO, even Fallout 4. It’s DISGUSTING yet you defend these jabronis? All of that yet the games are hideous and broken. Skyrim is still broken. But keep defending them.

      Oh, and you are a FOOL to complain about Sony charging $10 to upgrade to Death Stranding Director’s Cut. That’s honestly a shockingly low price for new story, racetrack+cars, weapons, robots, turrets, package cannons, new combat improvements, ramps, social enhancements, and obviously huge technical improvements like 4K/60, widescreen, DualSense implementation, 3D audio, etc.

      Death Stranding DC is like charity. I’m not sure why it’s $10 and not $30 to upgrade but I’m not complaining. Oh, and we get all the Half Life/PC content, obviously.

    • Also, know your subject.

      Even tho SP built up enormous cred by gifting a $20 multiplayer mode with constant support for free and releasing a game with NO MTX, we can forget that and just tackle the the fact that you ignore with the upgrade and director’s cut.

      The $10 technical upgrade is not a port. I’ll list the enhancements.

      $10 upgrade:

      – From 1800p – 2160p
      – impressive haptic feedback
      – adaptive triggers
      – 3D audio
      – Japanese lip sync
      – real time cutscenes
      – some enhanced textures
      – improved models
      – 60fps (also in BC edition)

      And the quality of life/Legends content that was added free for everyone only occured because of the Director’s Cut. But even discounting the free content and consumer friendly practices prior to this, the $10 upgrade is far more than just a port and the $30 gives you a story expansion and massive new Island. You can buy the Iki expansion for $20 without the upgrade. It’s basically similar to The Frozen Wilds and an average expansion price.

      If Sucker Punch had not given us a multiplayer expansion for free and if they hadn’t been so consumer friendly up until this point, I’d tend to agree that perhaps the upgrade should be free. I’d criticize it. But in an age where MTX us rampant and cut content is sold as day one DLC. Where half the games have premium currency and $120 day one editions that milk your wallet, I’d rather pay $10 up front and receive an immaculate product that continues to be supported with free content and meaningful upgrades, without a trace of MTX. People are so naive when they are nickel and dimed in virtually every other game, but because the publisher disguises it well nobody is up in arms. But when an extremely Fair developer asks for $10 on a product that damn well deserves it people freak out.

      The world is in a sad sorry State and people are pathetic.

    • WOW! Tsushima defense squad TURNING OUT over here!

  • I want to buy fallout 4 goty on discount right know but I decided not to i saw on Google game braking save bug 0 kb and all other problems I don’t want to burn myself again like I did with skyrim on pc I lost all my progress coz I couldn’t get out from book another game braking bug

  • My god they just keep milking it. This is getting sad

  • Wow. They’re really milking this game.

  • i understand why this is done but its a bit of an insult to us gamers that have already bought the game several times before as i have on ps3 then again with legendary edition and again for xbox one special edition and for ps4 now expect us to fork out again for anniversary editions by offering free creation club content i think if you already own a copy you should get this content as a free update as a thank you for the years of loyalty to this company as they take our money and still produce games using outdated software

  • PlayStation users will be blocked from playing The Elder Scrolls 6 due to Microsoft exclusivity, but Bethesda want to get one last bit of money out of PlayStation users first with Skyrim Anniversary Edition? Not a good look. Not everyone has the kind of money to be buying both next-gen consoles especially after last year, the Elder Scrolls series has been on PlayStation for a long time now and should continue to be on PlayStation.

    • Like all the Spider-Man games I played on Xbox?

    • I don’t support exclusivity for any game. If it were up to me there would be one console that plays everything. We got a little bit closer to that when Sega stopped making their own consoles and made the majority of their games multiplatform, but there’s still a long way to go. I’m glad I don’t have to buy a Dreamcast 4 just for the Yakuza series which is now multiplatform. This whole eternal format war in gaming is childish and deeply outdated.

  • Is this an out of season April fools joke

  • Please let it Rest In Peace.

  • Too bad we aren’t getting actual external mods though. Just like the PS4 version Sony wasn’t having it now Bethesda is partners with Microsoft. Now with this “new” version it’ll be the same thing 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Can we just take time for greatness

  • Never played it , cant wait one day to become free on ps plus, more rpg games always welcome

  • The only way I’d purchase is if it allowed us to play the upcoming Skyblivion mod.

  • Why would I give Bethesda more money if they dont care about playstation players lol.

  • i dont play buthesta games anymore because buthesta is a traitor and a sellout.

  • I hope there will be a PS5 Patch for the PSVR Version :-D

  • I haven’t really ever tried Elder Scrolls or Skyrim, basically the demo/beta when it originally came out. I don’t know why it’s my style and game preference but I want to get started.
    I’m curious about how the VR gameplay is compared to normal? Plan on getting vr and with a big title game like this it would be great if it was good VR title.

    I did like that you can be turned into a werewolf in the game through a few methods, but the little I know about the game + getting another player to turn you will cost you makes me wonder if it will take awhile to reach werewolf access? If anyone is willing to turn me please let me know!
    My only hesitation to play now is the games growth making it an overwhelming experience for new players coming in. Has it held on too the quality that new players can get going without being overwhelmed or should I expect it to be overwhelming but worth the effort?

  • New graphics! Restate what everyone has forgotten or not know in the last 10 years. Put your energies into something new and quit packaging the same old game.

  • How about celebrating The Elder Scrolls by actually releasing a new game every 3-4 years instead of milking the same game over and over for a decade straight?!

  • So wait, I already own the special edition for the ps4, now do I need to buy it again just to get the creation club additions?

  • God that’s pathetic.

  • Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be simultaneously the first and last Elder Scrolls game available on PlayStation consoles (PS3 to PS5).

    • The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was on PS3 as well, Skyrim is the second game in The Elder Scrolls series to come to PlayStation.
