Here are the Platforms You Can and Cannot Play Skyrim On

By Luke Plunkett on at

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out in 2011. It has been officially released on a bunch of platforms, which is probably where you’ve played it at least once over the last six years.

Here are the platforms you can play Skyrim on:

  • PC
  • Xbox 360
  • Xbox One
  • PlayStation 3
  • PlayStation 4
  • Nintendo Switch

And here are the platforms you cannot play Skyrim on:

  • Nintendo DS
  • Nintendo 3DS
  • Nintendo Wii U
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Windows Phone
  • PlayStation Portable
  • PlayStation Vita
  • Graphic Calculator
  • Automatic Teller Machine

Correction: these are the platforms you cannot play Skyrim on yet.

I’m pointing this out because as the game has only just hit the Switch, I’ve seen a lot of people joking that it’s available on pretty much everything (this story, for example, hit the front page of Reddit the other day).

But really, six platforms over six years, for a game that’s one of the all-time greats, seems...fine?
