Patch your Skyrim save file for Xbox 360 mods

Since the release of The Elder Scrolls V back in November last year it was pretty much known that you had to have the game on a PC if you wanted to get more from the game, which has something to do with its modding capabilities. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that this is not possible on the console versions, but this is no longer the case because you can patch your Skyrim save file on your Xbox 360 for mods.

The community has been going mad since the release of the Creation Kit on Steam, coming up with a great number of mods to make Skyrim even more enjoyable – some are awesome and make the experience better while others are not that great. So far on Steam players have published thousands of mods and more are being added all the time, here are some of the best ones.

Now don’t expect the Xbox to be able to offer anything like this number but being able to mod the Skyrim save file is a big deal, because now those with the 360 version can enjoy different options and also take advantage of new powers.

There are fears that patching the save file for the game will harm your Xbox 360, but according to VGI the process is perfectly safe and even offers a step-by-step guide on how to mod Skyrim on your Xbox. You are warned not to mod your Xbox version of Skyrim and play online because it goes against the Xbox Live terms and conditions, but seeing as though there are no online capabilities there is nothing to fear – just something to think about if there was ever online support.

In the middle of February there had been 2 million mods downloaded via Steam’s Skyrim Workshop, now we are in May and that figure is well over 13 million. There are two things we can learn from this, the first is that the appetite of the PC gamer with Skyrim just craves for more mods and the second is that the Xbox 360 has no hope in hell of ever competing would likely never compete on a mods level, although not everyone is a fan of mods.

    I don’t know how it works, but it’s also illegal to modify the os to allow this.

    It is also illegal if Bethesda doesn’t want the save files modified.

    Again, I don’t know for sure, but it’s something to think about.

    What is the point of the end of this article? “Xbox 360 has no hope in hell of ever competing”? Why write this? Almost every article I see on Skyrim on sites such as this has some sorto f similar raging PC fanboy comment. Firstly, Skyrim already sells more on the 360 than any other platform, so in terms of competing, it already won. Second of all, not everyone likes mods. I hate mods.
    But why lower yourself in this article? It just makes you sound like a hurt fanboy. What’s the hurt about?
