Skyrim PS3 owners are about to get seriously shafted by Bethesda. Despite working on the problem for months, the developers just can’t seem to get the problems for their DLC package Dawnguard sorted out.
The vampire-themed DLC was released for the Xbox 360 and PC earlier in the summer, but a lot of speculation has been cast over the PlayStation 3 release. Now, Bethesda seems to be throwing in the towel with a statement claiming they don’t think they can fix the problem.
Earlier in the month, we provided an update on Dawnguard’s status for PS3.
It’s been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we’re at with Dawnguard. 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.
Tough luck for PlayStation 3 owners who are getting the broadside of a bad deal, but they apologize, so it’s all good. Don’t take it too badly though because apparently Dawngaurd is not that good. The real scare though is if Bethesda does manage to develop something worth your while, will they struggle with the same issues again?
