Enter the world of game modding...
A prime example and exclusively to PSX-Scene is the developers behind GTA IV. These include, in random order: Colt, Emmanuel U, EvilB, HuN, JDMAlex, jumper, keredor, nativesith, ribonucleic, rodd1981, Three-Socks (we apologize if we forgot anyone, and that goes without saying for the rest of this article as well)
We have had an abundant amount of game mods to GTA IV that has brought more advancements to this game, released years ago, than even the developers of the game have released. FREE mods generously added by devoted developers here at PSX-Scene...
The future of CONSOLE game modding?
Game modding has truly become something amazing, as it breathes new life into old games. The PC is obviously the game modders choice versus a console, but those who choose to mod PS3 games are showing others scenes that the PC is not the only place to go for mods. Amazing work has been done in our GTA IV, MK9, and Skyrim sub-sections.. things some may have thought would never happen.
We are also seeing game saves being transferred from PC to PS3, which can be considered a sign of great things to come, perhaps we will see more PC mods make an appearance on PS3 consoles.
Another aspect of game modding to consider is what CMP aka CodeMasters-Project does. They release cheats for users to enhance their games. It seems nothing can stop these guys, as they have been releasing cheats for a long, long time. I still have trouble believing I am talking to the actual Skiller sometimes, and it all seems like something from a dream...
We can only hope more people take an interest in this great sub-scene of scenes that is game modding. The more people who know how to do it... the more things we will see come into fruition. Well, what are you waiting for? Grab the latest CMP Auto Tools and starting making your own cheat files today. Why wait for someone else's cheat that you might end up not wanting to use anyways? Here is a link: CMP Auto Tools Version 6.3
GTA V modding?
This is determined on a couple of factors presently. Those factors are RockStar and Sony, and what, if any, attempts they make to prevent this game from being hacked/modded day one. Obviously, it would make sense for a company to try and prevent their product from being altered the first day of release... But another factor to consider is the modders. What drives a modder? Well, take for instance a game like GTA V. Some will play the game, and after thoroughly enjoying it, will want to take the game farther. So while we may not see day one mods for GTA V (who knows though, we just might), give the game modders some time to beat the hell out of the game before they decide to start taking it apart and making it loads better.
Other game mods?
Mortal Kombat 9
If you want the most of of MK9, there is no question... PSX-Scene is the place to be! With a great team of modders such as LilGrim, rstabbs71, futuretime23, and Tetzrep; there are new things to try out almost every day. From custom characters, to unlocks, and so much more. It is amazing to see the work that has been done on this game, and I know personally for me it is great to see Mortal Kombat back on top of the hill of fighting games. As MK continues it's legacy, rest assured a supreme team of modders will be there to bring you everything and more!
Some of you may know there are some big updates coming to Skyrim next month. It seems Bethesda has finally figured out the screwy PS3, and have been able to functionally add their DLC to the console. This may mean different things for the modding scene of this game, as the PS3 scene does not know what steps Bethesda or Sony have taken to make these DLCs function correctly on the PS3. In other words, our great team of Skyrim modders (seifer69er, DEREKTROTTER, selyb) might have to start from scratch. All I can say, is expect great things from the hard working modders here at PSX-Scene, and all across the web!
