Fallout 4 mods delayed for PlayStation 4

Fallout 4 mods will need to wait for a few fixes before hitting Sony's console.

Bethesda games and PlayStation consoles go together like peanut butter and toothpaste.

Fallout 4 mod support was supposed to come to PlayStation 4 in June, but the game’s publisher has now confirmed it is delaying that feature. Bethesda’s mod support and Creation Kit tools have already launched in full for PC and Xbox One, the developer needs to work through some of Sony’s software limitations. Fallout 4 was one of the best-selling releases in the PC and console sectors of the $99.6 billion gaming market last year. Bethesda is bringing mod support to consoles, an industry first, in an effort to keep players engaged and spending money on officially developed add-on content.

Bethesda is not providing a new date for mods on PlayStation 4. It is working with Sony to get fixes for three known issues with mods on the console before it will roll it out to the public.

Getting mods working on PS4 is likely a top priority for Bethesda since it is planning to release an updated version of its beloved fantasy adventure The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with the same feature. Bethesda does not want to screw up the upgrade of its best-selling game ever, so expect it to do everything it can to sort out its PS4 issues before the October 28 release date.

The PlayStation 3 version of Skyrim was infamous for its technical problems, and Bethesda spent months after the debut trying to fix its poor frame-rate and numerous bugs. But while it was the under-powered PS3 hardware that caused troubles last generation, it is Sony software and policy that is the issue this time around.

Sony has put a 900MB limit on uploaded mods from community members using the creation kit. The Xbox One enables mods up to 2GB in size. Bethesda says it is working with Sony to increase that limit. The two companies are also talking through issues with importing textures from Bethesda.net to PS4 and Sony’s proprietary audio format that are causing separate issues.

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
