Latest Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 comment bewilders
If you’re like us we visit the Twitter account of Peter Hines each day in the hope of learning something worthwhile, and while the latest tweets have not offered any insight into the release of Skyrim Dawnguard for the PS3, it seems that no mater what Hines posts his comment will not be greeted well and a barrage of questions ensues.
His latest tweet seemed to anger many PlayStation 3 users, because he was asked if Bethesda should have offered Microsoft exclusivity for the DLC following the issues that the PS3 has had with Skyrim in the past. His answer was short but got peoples attention; he simply said, “In hindsight, it didn’t matter.”
Hines did elaborate on this saying it didn’t matter to the release of Dawnguard on the PS3. It’s clear to see that no malice was intended. He just meant that the deal Bethesda has with Microsoft has no impact on the issues they currently have with the PS3? Do you think it would be fair to penalize Xbox 360 users, I own the PS3 version of Skyrim and even I believe that this would be unfair?
The resentment towards Bethesda seems to increase on a daily basis and for good reason, and when Hine comes out with short answers to people’s comments you can understand the anger. Another of his tweets was, “Still working on it. We haven’t give up yet.” Okay, we can understand that Hines is just the PR guy but surly he should offer more than that?
What we have also noticed with Hines’s latest comments is how it went from trying to resolve the issue with just Dawnguard to all Skyrim DLC, although we pretty much already knew this to be the case. However, it does show that they are no closer to a resolution because if they were then they would want to inform PS3 users of the fact. Currently Bethesda has no deadline on when they would give up trying to get Skyrim DLC to run on Sony’s console, but they have said they are far from exhausting all the options.
Can you see that Bethesda will ever be able to offer Skyrim DLC for the PS3 and if not are they obliged to offer any kind of goodwill gesture to them, maybe a discount for a future game etc?
