    Glen Schofield, the founder of Sledgehammer Games said, "You can go out and name your engine and call it whatever you want. I've done that before - I've seen that trick,"

    "The bottom line is this game [MW3] will run at 60 frames a second. Not sure any of our competitors will.

    "I'd be a little scared at this point, in June, if I was looking forward to a particular game that wasn't on the console and running at 60," continued Schofield. "60 is our competitive edge and you just don't throw that away."

  • Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim mod tools coming to consoles as well

    Todd Howard in an interview to AusGamer has said that the team at Bethesda is interested in bringing Skyrim mod tools not only to the PC but also to the console version of the game.

    "But a lot of our audience is on the consoles so they're not experiencing that. So we have talked to Microsoft and Sony; 'how do we do this?'"

    Howard, however accepted that there are certain obstacles in achieving this, and so this features would not be available at the launch of the game, but modding Skyrim on console would be achieveable at somepoint.

    "The good news is that those things have started to happen with games like Forza 3 and sharing all your car stuff or Rock Band's a really good example, where you can make your own tracks where you're authoring them somewhere else then you're uploading them to the 360.

    "There are still a lot of issues to solve because these aren't instances like a song or a car. You could download a mod that destroys your game and we can't have that. So we're still... we have not solved - even on paper yet - how to handle security, how do we handle not messing up your saved games and things like that.

    "So it's not going to be solved for the game's release," he continued. "But it's something that we're going to continue to look at because we think that it's an awesome part of the game that the majority of our audience isn't seeing.
