Fifty times more traffic is quite a lot, but I wouldn't chalk this up entirely to console players' thirst for mods.

We've already seen the most popular Xbox One mods providing more firearms, unlimited crafting supplies, and select anatomical enhancements. We'll find out whether Sony's players are into the same kind of stuff when Bethesda enables mod support on PS4 later this month.
