Mods aren't going to be in the game at launch, but Todd Howard said that Creation Kit will go to PC shortly after launch, with mods coming to XB1 shortly after and then PS4 after that, the PC/XB1 link making it easier to deal with.

Dang, these pictures of Fallout 3 is making me realize how much crappier console graphics are. While everyone else is amazed at how crappy 3 looks compared to what I remember, I'm sitting here thinking those look nicer than what I remember :p (console player here.. there is a big difference between the pictures just a few posts above me from 3 and what my game on my PS3 looked like).

I wonder how much different 4 will look like on my PS4 than the pictures they've been using in the demo.

You do realize there are performance tradeoffs right? Look up draw calls in relation to performance.

A Bethesda game has a massive amount of draw calls because almost every object is dynamic (meaning it is not baked into the environment thus saving draw calls).
This is the case with almost every modern game. Take Witcher 3. Do you really think there are more draw calls in any Fallout 4 scene than a really crowded square in Novigrad? Or walking through a forest in which every single tree is independently affected by wind?

Why?
