Confirming PS3 Skyrim DLC before discount talk
We are glad to say that not all is lost for PlayStation 3 owners of Skyrim and although we expected DLC like Dawnguard to embrace us before now confirmation of the downloadable content for the PS3 has come prior to any discount talk. At least now, gamers are starting to get a bit of feedback about what is going on via Twitter updates, and taking these into consideration we can see that Bethesda has not given up on the release of Dawnguard.
Many disheartened PS3 gamers have got to the point where they have given up on any future DLC although according to Bethesda’s Pete Hines it seems like the company are trying their best to get this passed. In an article on The Bit Bag, they mention Hines’ comments that this is not cancelled and before any discussion occurs about a discount, they want to get it ready for gamers and confirm it will be happening. Bethesda has also highlighted the size of this expansion, which could affect upcoming DLC releases on the PS3.
This has caused many PlayStation 3 gamers to worry about whether the following DLC will also have setbacks but for the time being we are concentrating on the news that Dawnguard is not cancelled. Highlighting this news, Product Reviews report on the frustration for those gamers that are being treated differently, and although many have wondered whether they will ever receive either DLC the confirmation of Dawnguard gives gamers good news one-step at a time.
When you look at the amount of abuse Pete Hines has taken over this, some feel that the lack of information given by Bethesda overall means many show little remorse for how he feels. Many welcome news that they are still working on it, and this shows that a bit of communication can help the situation, although there are many out there who have turned their backs on anything to do with Bethesda. A weekly blog for readers to keep informed would be an ideal way to keep the updates flowing and inform gamers of any recent changes.
In other news, Joystiq write about Bethesda‘s view on Skyrim coming to the Wii U and they see this as a definite possibility, although some enthusiasts will take this with a pinch of salt. The idea of a port to Nintendo’s next gen console sounds like it could eventually come about, although the notion from Peter Hines is that it will have to support the weight of a full port, as opposed to a system-exclusive approximation. How do you think the Wii U controls could be best implemented with Skyrim?
Only last week we spoke about a third Skyrim DLC and many PS3 gamers disregarded suggestions that it will support the PlayStation 3. We looked at what is expected to be the largest piece of content yet and discussed various ideas of what it should contain, although we are still concerned whether a massive DLC will ever come to the PS3. Do you feel that a weekly update would be a nice gesture by Bethesda to inform their loyal Skyrim fans? Maybe you have an idea of how they could compensate PS3 gamers.
