Skyrim DLC visual and PS3 hostility
We’ve been waiting for what seems like an age for the upcoming Skyrim DLC so it was finally nice to get a visual treat, and while some gamers are happy it’s obvious that there is some hostility from PS3 users. The reason why is because the Xbox 360 has yet another timed exclusive with Dawnguard just like they do with new Call of Duty content, and it’s now starting to try the patience of PlayStation users.
The whole saga with COD is no shock but that’s what we now expect, but certain gamers have been asking why the exclusive with the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC because it’s not consistent with how Bethesda treat their fans. It’s obvious that there will be varied views on this, but from the looks of things those with a PS3 will have to wait a full month after 360 users have been enjoying Dawnguard.
We have heard suggestions that Bethesda would not have needed the money for this timed exclusive deal because of the success they have with their games, but you have to remember that they’re a business and are never going to turn money away. Look at it like this, Microsoft might have helped shape Skyrim into the game it is today as the extra cash from them could have helped the development process along – remember we said MIGHT.
One of the reasons we say this is because the game was a big undertaking and it would have been easy for Bethesda to start going over budget. If this was the case then it’s about time that Sony started to put up some money instead of Microsoft. At least PC users will be left waiting as well for the new DLC, but they can’t moan, not with all their modding possibilities.
