Lack of PS3 Dawnguard information and transparency
If you are a PS3 and Skyrim owner then now’s not a good time to own either because of the lack of DLC support. It’s no secret that there are a few issues when it comes to bringing out Dawnguard, which as we know is the first downloadable content for Skyrim. It’s also obvious that those with a PlayStation 3 will not be happy with Bethesda, which is evident by the amount of negative comments that has been sent into certain members of the team behind the development of the DLC.
There are so many ways to look at this situation, but no matter what we say or do it’s not going to change the outcome, so we should just let both Sony and Bethesda get on with trying to figure out how to get the first Skyrim DLC to the PS3 instead of giving the likes of Pete Hines a hard time seeing as though his job is PR and not the development of the DLC.
Having said that, Hines should keep us better informed because the information and transparency is lacking in a big way, which is a major reason why those with a PS3 have now started to hit out, no matter who bares the force of their anger. Hines would have known that Dawnguard would not be coming to Sony’s console a month after the Xbox 360 exclusive period, if we had been kept informed then there is the possibility that there would not have been half as much negativity towards Bethesda.
Some of the comments that have been coming is have been pretty funny, and you have to admire how Hines can spin it to make it sound pretty funny, even though this is a big issue for the company. One Tweet said, “the official count is in! 100% of Ps3 users that intend on giving you their money are complete morons! All hail bathexbox!” In which Hines then replied back “Thx for calling all the folks who enjoyed Skyrim PS3 idiots. I’m sure they appreciate it.” The banter then went on but it was one-sided as Hines decided not to answer anymore of those Tweets.
Some PS3 owners still believe that there will be a positive outcome and that Dawnguard and Hearthfire will still make it to the console, but it’s hard to stay positive. We say this because both Sony and Bethesda said that they are struggling to get DLC to work on the PlayStation 3. As you would imagine there has been a huge reaction from PS3 users who believe that they are entitled to some sort of compensation with some suggesting that Bethesda owe them this content. However, this does not form part of the game when it was purchased and was not promised as part of it either, even though there have been some suggestions that is states on the Skyrim box add-on content available, which we have not noticed, have you?
What’s your stance on this issue?
