If Microsoft spent its money on its platform development instead of getting content first then maybe the Xbox would be a better system....
Skyrim Dawnguard tease shows DLC favoritism
Over the past few months we’ve looked at what might come when the first Skryim DLC is released, and this has included debate on where the big expansion should go, the little things that need to be included as extras in the pack, and also dealbreakers for some people that are vital if they’re to part with money.
One fact had been known for a while but some gamers seemly forgot – this fact is the timed exclusive with Microsoft, which meant the Skyrim DLC – now known as Dawnguard – would be going to the Xbox 360 first. Microsoft love to throw their money around and get things first, and this is most notable with certain DLC found with some of the most popular games, and one of those games is the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Within the last 24 hours the gaming community has seen a blog post on the official Bethesda website, which included an image and just one line of text. The content simply said “Coming this summer to Xbox 360“, and explained that more details would be revealed at E3 2012. You can see part of that image above, but the real upset has come from the fact that they only mention “Xbox 360“.
It’s pretty obvious exact dates for PS3 and PC will come soon, although we still are waiting for final details on the Xbox 360 release date, which again is likely to be announced at E3. One reason some PS3 owners feel a little upset is the fact that they had a big issue with lag/frame rate drops, something we experienced ourselves until it was fixed in a later patch, and thanks to the PC getting mods and the Xbox 360 seeing the DLC first it only adds to PS3 frustration.
What do you expect from Skyrim Dawnguard, and if you’re a PS3 owner are you feeling a little frustrated from the extra wait?
- Fallout 4 sham, no release date anytime soon
- Anticipating Game of Thrones gameplay, platform support
- Late Halo 5 Xbox One release blame realized
- The Sing-Off 2013 vs. The Voice
- Best TVs for gaming in 2013 nailed
- Best gaming laptop under $1000 in 2013 comparison

It feels good to have to wait. Let xbox get the bugged as hell first edition and we'll get it when its patched up. Xbox is always the experimental platform
If you payed for your online subscription on PS3, like the faithful Xboxers, maybe then you'd have grounds to bitch..why wouldn't they get it early when they pay 50 bucks a year to play..if its that bad waiting, buy a fuckin Xbox..you guys just need to chill!
I am ENRAGED at this CRAP!!! EVERY SINGLE GOOD UPDATE FOR GAMES COMES FIRST ON FRICKEN XBOX. CALL OF DUTY, AND NOW THIS!? WHAT THE &@*&$^!*#* IS WRONG WITH THESE #*@$&^#%
if xbox was so great wouldnt have to rely on exclusivity deals to secure players from other platforms....simple as, smacks of desperation to me
Bethesda don't suck up to Microsoft, its actually the other way around. Microsoft only care for money, so they bribe Bethesda in order to get DLC a month early. I don't know what they were thinking, this isn't COD where the game is so small that a month's head-start would make a difference; this is SKYRIM, its so big the month won't make a difference.
Yeah, I'm Tom Meadows, I have a PS3. It sucks! I just don't know why anyone would buy it. Also I just love Shane Bowditch/Jess/Walrus ass. Peace out Megamans.
If was was running around in 70 lbs. of heavy armour swinging a huge battle axe and shouting so hard it kills dragons... I'd have red eyes too.
Sad that it's coming for xbox 1st. for those that say that sony is screwing with people just tell me that, can you play kinect on 1st gen xbox 360? no, can you play 3d games on 1st gen ps3? yes.
I hope it's a challenge as im lv 81 and a 1000+ armor as i just normally cut down any enemy in my path
well i was a former ps3 owner and switched to xbox for the sole purpose of playing skyrim dlc sooner... not that i have been play skyrim on xbox it is like night and day the game has only froze like once the whole time i have been playing for the last 2 months where as with the ps3 version it was like every day the game would freeze up... but now i know i have to wait till at least june 21 im not interested in playing skyrim anymore its summer time now and im going to enjoy the outdoors goodbye fomer love of my life skyrim...
Come to think of it: -Crossbows are usually weapons used to take down vampires. -Vampires can essentially live forever( as evidenced by that "child" in the Dark Brotherhood) -The Snow Elf Prince may possibly be still alive due to vampirism, hence the additions in the latest patch. -In that teaser image, the DB's eyes are glowing, like a vampires eyes. -Vampires can only come out at night, and need guarding at Dawn from the sunlight. So that means one of two possibilities for the DLC: 1. Your character can join some sort of Vampire Cult/ Group which is lead by the Snow Elf Prince and cause havoc across Skyrim. or 2. You can join a Vampire Hunting Guild/ Clan lead by some sort of Van Helsing type guy with crossbows and such. Thats my take on it anyway :)
Wait a minute… Are you asking what we expect/want from the next Skyrim DLC? AGAIN!!?? Are you paid for the entries here? InEntertainment has been asking its readers this same question twice a week since the game’s release last year! The Dawnguard are a group of Mehrunes Dagon worshippers first encountered in Morrowind… Also, it was found in the recent code for patch 1.5 that Snow Elves, crossbows, spears and a Falmer prince are expected to show up, either in the DLC, or perhaps in a future patch/update the likes of which we’ve seen before, such as with the texture pack and the killcam. I’m pretty sure that whatever Bethesda is cooking up in its labs will give us our money’s worth, just like they always do, no matter what the impatient little gamers are requesting. It’s a 300-hour game, people! 290 hours MORE than the average title these days.
*cough, cough* Mythic Dawn worship Mehrunes Dagon But, yeah, I completely agree with what you are complaining about, the amount of sites that ask what we want in DLC, instead of doing posts that we would actually be interested in, is overwhelming. There is no need for us to be the ones writing the article. "Hey, I found this out...what do you think about it?" - Almost every article.
GIVE IT ME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLZ
Well, I play on PS3, and quite frankly i'm glad the 360 is getting it early. They can put up with all the bugs and glitches this time, which will be fixed by the time it launches on PC and PS3.
Ha ha we get it first lad because we dont have to put up with Lags, glitches or .... shall i say it.... HACKS!!! crappy ps3! we get the best for our best console!
Lol and we now hes one of those 12 year olds and the fact with bethesda games, young child is that they are ALWAYS glitchy they always spaz out for the first month even bethesda will agree on this microsoft are just sell out hores fact ps3 doesnt make atempts to buy games out because they are decent. I'm just disapointed that bethesda would do this to all those who were crippled with lag to begin with on ps3
