Skyrim’s DLC might not make it to the PS3

2 min read


Yesterday, I surmised that PS3 gamers were justified in their hate for all things Bethesda – because of the pretty poor post-sale support they’ve received on the company’s titles. I may have been a little hasty – because if I’d said so today, adding in the new information that Skyrim’s DLC might not be making it to the PS3 after all – angry PS3 gamers might’ve set the world on fire, which would have been a little entertaining to watch.

Yeah – it seems that Dawnguard (and all subsequent Skyrim DLC) might not find its way to the PS3 at all. Ever.  In a statement on their forum, Bethesda admitted they’re still struggling to get the content up on running, that they’re working with Sony to try and resolve it – but that it might not happen at all.

“Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizable content like Dawnguard. We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone. The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want. Dawnguard is obviously not the only DLC we’ve been working on either, so the issues of adding content get even more complicated. This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve, but we are working together with Sony to try to bring you this content.

“We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms. When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that.”

Right, so PS3 gamers…who’s looking forward to Fallout 4 then?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
