Default BethSoft May Support Future Games With Mobile/Tablet Platforms.

Evening All,

In a recent interview, everyones favourite game developer Bethesda Softworks (BethSoft) may use such platforms as Mobile Phones and Tablets to add content to their future games for Consoles.

The reason for this may not be so obvious to some so i'll explain: PC's in their greatness have to a nigh unlimited scope for expansion onto a pre-existing game installed onto its Hard Drive (HDD), Consoles not so much. Because games cannot be expanded upon through DLC's/Mods/Add-Ons so easily and have limited HDD space/Expansion capability (upgrading the current HDD for instance) developers are hard pressed or even reluctant to release new patches/updates or DLC's as big or as frequently.

Using platforms like Mobile Phones or Tablets, you can add content to a game, much in the way the Dreamcast did with the VMU or the GameCube did with the GBA.

Sounds promising For all you Console Jockeys

The one thing to be wary of is how much "lore" they add in this peripheral content. Bioware made a huge misstep that no one noticed until ME3 came out. They had introduced major storylines and character via a cellphone exclusive game. There were many references in ME3 that went "woosh" for most people because they didn't partake of the peripheral content. Side stories and character (especially minor character) development is great for comics, books, mobile games, tablet apps, etc. Bethesda just needs to make sure they don't screw the pooch like BW did!
