Skyrim Dawnguard on PC released, PS3 MIA
With news that The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard expansion coming out on the PC many PlayStation 3 owners are now saying where’s ours and when is it going to be released. At the moment, there is no confirmation of this, and brief details on Bethesda’s Blog informs gamers that this is due to quality concerns on the console.
PlayStation 3 owners obviously want a decent finished product but they are also want it pretty soon and the firm saying that they are “not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the console”, which is now amounting to their disappointment being close to that of the fans. Reporting their comments Attack Of The Fanboy writes about Bethesda’s efforts to produce a finished article that will compliment the game, as opposed to making the experience worse.
We are starting to get the impression that there are serious issues with the content, which is relative to those PS3 owners experienced at Skyrim’s initial launch last year, and that took Bethesda some time to sort. With the Skyrim Dawnguard expansion available on Steam from today, we are hoping that they pull their finger out and rectify the issues soon, so that PlayStation 3 owners can get the chance to catch up with the rest.
News of the ‘Dawnguard’ DLC arriving on the PC is also documented on a post by Joystiq giving details of the languages it is available in and for $19.99 this will be accessible in English, French, Italian, Spanish and German. They also mention that Skyrim itself is on sale today, for $29.99 and it’s also available as part of a massive “QuakeCon bundle.” Because of the delay of Dawnguard on the PS3, many gamers are suggesting that they should reduce the price and although some are happy to see that Bethesda are trying their best to give us decent content PlayStation 3 owners are suggesting this should be free, or at least heavily discounted.
In other related news, it seems that collectible figures are coming out and yesterdays post mentioned Symbiote now having the rights to make figures for The Elder Scrolls, Dishonored, Doom, Fallout and Quake. The first of their available toys will be a QuakeCon 2012 figurine, which comes in a swag bag, after that the Skyrim Dragonborn character will be available for a pre-order cost of $9.99. Going back to the source, do you feel that the price of Dawnguard expansion should be reduced?
