Skyrim: Dawnguard PS3 reprieve following Dishonored release
Over the past few months those of you with the PS3 version of Skyrim have felt a little hard done by because of the lack of support. Not being able to play Skyrim: Dawnguard on the PlayStation 3 has been a huge issue for Bethesda and have been working hard to try and solve the issues. It was only obvious that seeing as though Peter Hines is head of the PR department he has been overwhelmed with the questions and comments coming in on his Twitter account, but we have noticed that he has had a reprieve following the release of Dishonored.
While we know that Bethesda did not develop the game, they are the publisher and would have had a decent amount of input. From the huge number of comments that Hines and ourselves had received in regards to Bethesda being a part of Dishonored, we had assumed that Hines would have been given a hard time, but it looks as though he has been getting some positive feedback instead.
During the past few days we have not seen one tweet that mentions Skyrim: Dawnguard in any way on Peter Hines’s account, but one tweet did compare Dishonored with Resident Evil, saying “12-15 hours of a great, replayable game is way better than a 30 hr bag of rat crap pretending to be a game.” Which does seem to bolster most of the reviews for RE6, which is the total opposite for Dishonored.
Are you surprised that PS3 owners have left Peter Hines alone for a few days? Personally I’m now at the stage where I’ll just wait and if the DLC comes it comes, and if it don’t it don’t. However, not all PlayStation 3 owners hoping to get the first expansion for Skyrim feels the same way as myself because they have asked if Bethesda have “>breached the Good Sales Act contract.” This does seem a little harsh and we’re not even certain if they would have a case to begin with, what are your thoughts?
Were you more shocked that some gamers said that they would not purchase Dishonored because of Bethesda’s involvement, or are you more shocked that PS3 owners with Skyrim have left Hines alone for a few days?

I do have a heavy heart for PS3 gamers even though I don't have a PS3 anymore now and Chuck (below me) is right. Bethesda Studios is great. Every gamer knows that played almost any game they ever made. BUT Bethesda needs to get the release dates right. At least a hint of when Dawnguard's release would becoming out when Dawnguard came out onto the PC and Xbox 360. I hope you will get it soon.

This article was written 10 days ago saying that Bugsthesda's DLCs will be coming out like 9 days ago. If Glitchesda weren't passing out Microsoft Salts, I would be playing Dawnguard already.
t's a little too late for apologies. Bethesda should have apologized 30 days after Dawnguard's release on Xbox 360. Those impenitent remarks are nothing more than publicity stunts. You can keep your unsympathetic nonchalant apologies Bethesda... we're not buying it. But if you really want to answer some questions and TRUTHFULLY I might add, then answer this: 1. Bethesda… why didn’t you develope Skyrim on Playstation 3 first given how complicated porting can be from Xbox 360 to Playstation 3? 2. Any viable entity projects a rate of successes and a rate of failures with their business plan. By assuming you adhere to the law and pretest your products for the lawful required amount of time, why weren’t Playstation 3 users given a fair notice or a delayed release of Skyrim to maximize quality and fair usage for current and forthcoming content of Skyrim? 3. Given the amount of complaints and faulty replicas of your design why hasn’t your company requested a recall of the Playstation 3 version of Skyrim? Are you unaware that you can be held liable in the court of law for false advertising, mental anguish, and bad faith business dealings? 4. Bethesda, Playstation 3 users have proof that: a. Skyrim was defective before they purchased it. b. The un-obvious defects of Skyrim on Playstation 3 could not have been seen before purchasing. c. You did not for-warn or notify them about Skyrim’s defects before the sale or that you actually lied about it. d. Playstation 3 users relied on your lies or non-disclosures of the the Playstation 3 version of Skyrim. e. Playstation 3 users have suffered monetary damage due to your negligent misrepresentation of Skyrim on Playstation 3.What is your response to that?
Coming from a person who owns a PS3 and a fucked up version of skyrim words cannot explain what Bethesda is doing. But for Xbox 360 supporters claiming that we are blowing this situation out of proportion. Sadly you're mistaken we aren't you have content while we don't if you have forgotten let me remind you hearthfire is now on PC and Xbox 360 have it. So how about this PS3 puts out extra money on a huge multi platform rpg gets hands on 2 months before Xbox 360 then when its time for your share to come out let the release date be pushed back to no ends. Then we'll see who will blow things out of proportion.
They have breached the Good Sales Act contract. One of the best part of the elder scrolls games have been the DLC. The ps3 case on the back says that DLCs would be available to those who have purchased the game. I really don't care that they are having problems that's not my fault however, as ps3 owner I feel like I have been mislead becasue if they had said that there was no DLCs for the ps3 I would of bought it for the pc. Also I do not know about other's but I kept my word I will never ever purchase anything else that bethseda has had its hands on. So the entire company can be blown to hell for the two shits I could give about it.
1. patches for the bugged games count as add-ons because well, they are adding on patches 2. they probably did it that way so they get a excuse to not release a dlc cause patches count as add ons, i see wut u did there beth
I can't buy Dishonored because i preordered AC3. We are still not happy with this crap as we are still feeling cheated for something that Bethesda has been working on for months! Who cares if Dishonored is good and crap, we still haven't gotten our DLC and I am not praising Bethesda in any single way or form until Dawnguard comes out.
Quite honestly I have both a PS3 and xbox i initially though oh hey it has good graphics on PS3 then i ecnountered bugs which they made my gameplay kind of more enjoyable because of all teh funny crazy and wacky things that happen when they patched the bugs its kinda made my gameply sort of norma with minimal bugs on Ps3 but now i bought it for xbox for the DLC's and im just going to sell my PS3 copy to my friend because i know that PS3 will most likely not get the DLC so i just gave up on bethesda and got the xbox version. Yeah i know some of u guys are thinkin wow what a chump for buying it for ps3 then getting it for xbox. I dont really see the difference they have somewhat the same graphics same game same weapons and all of that but the xbox fanboys think "oh look guys we have the DLC first and u have to wait haha" I took one look at the guy told him to screw off because i dont care the game is still enjoyable.
Its not all Bethesda, sure they didn't upgrade there stuff after Oblivion, but PS3 is way harder than XBox to code/program.
Bethesda is bogus i feel like i got rob,i don't trust them to make any games for the ps3,case close.
Bethesda is evil! How dare they work miracles to prouce a gmae on a system that won't support it! The only way to make them know we are serious in boycotting them is for all of you, er...us, is for a mass suicide attempt!! Everyone drink Drain-O right now!
Don't give a damn of both options. I bought skyrim for dlc content.. I ain't got none. Now I am very selective of Bethesda games. All I want after skyrim is fallout 4. PC players got it good tho. I got a ps3
I pirated Dishonored, just as I will with all Bethesda titles. I have to say, I was satisfied with the game I didn't purchase lol. Either way, PS3 deserves the DLC. Us PC gamers have your backs!
There's no reason not to play Bethesda's games, but you also don't have to pay for them either. Isn't that what torrents are for? Besides, there's a bigger problem at hand than just Bethesda not listening to us, if you've ever been given the run around by a telephone menu only to have your call dropped; it's clear the customer really doesn't matter that much anymore.
Why would anyone buy a Bethesda game for either console? It always ends up running best on PC (partially due to power, partially due to user-created bug fixes). Plus you have access to about 50 DLCs worth of mod content. Anyone who bought Skyrim for a console deserves what they get for their bad decision making, and TBH you should have expected problems beyond normal Bethesda release bugs when trying to play a modern game on 4+ year old designs and equipment.
It's not just the DLC. It's how long we've had to wait for patches, bug fixes and updates. The DLC is just the icing on the cake. This coming just after brink (Bethesda production not development) is making me wary of anything with Bethesda on it.
I feel that most of the people complaining on here should take a little time away from the video games and learn some basic English grammar and spelling. Anyways, I sold my Skyrim for PS3 due to the shitty memory dump that caused my game to lag. Then, I got a used copy for Xbox for cheap. Voila!
When I hold a product in my hand and if it says "Bethesda" on it even in the smallest print, I know I'm holding a shoddy third rated piece of crap I would never take home for free. Never will Bethesda touch my PS3. Skyrim is the last. Just ecstatic that Rockstar Games with all it's Stars and Stripes produced a more exciting open world game bethesda could never hold a candle too.
Why is every one complaing I bet quite a few people who bought the game on Xbox (Maybe PS3) don't have XBOX live(PSN) and they have to play without any DLC's on anygame.
I wasent comparing Xbox live to PSN quote anything that even implies im comparing Xbox live to PSN all i said is that some people might not have PSN or xbox live for some reason so they dont have DLC's on any games.
Ye but if you notice we get DLC's 1 month earlier and you need PSN to get DLC's the only difference is we pay and get more benefits.
At this point Bethesda has failed its customers, mostly because they lacked the ability and foresight to compensate for a pre-existing problem, and have now fallen back on a stall tactic, which, with any other type of business, would obviously result in loss of sales. Public response at this point is about par for the course, considering the size of the gaming industry and the fact that this is not the fist time this problem has occurred. A case against the good sales act would be difficult, but is not impossible, ignoring the fact that the public is against a multi-billion dollar company and would likely never win. I would say that not purchasing Dishonored because of this is not really reasonable, as Dishonored has no relation to the Elder Scrolls series of games at all, and is even designed based on an entirely different base system and game engine. This means that the game will not have the same problems, and since Bethesda is not the developer, you would only be hurting the developers by not purchasing the game, which seems hardly fair, seeing as they have shown capability, originality, and talent with this latest game. At this point I think most people have begun to simply ignore bethesda, and while the release of the repaired dlc's would be great, at this point I doubt it would fix the situation, as Bethesda has shown a failure as a company and a designer. It is unfortunate, but as a company they have managed to perform several extremely dangerous mistakes and repeat them.
Where there's a will... there's a way. I don't care if one shred of evidence is sufficient enough for a lawsuit, if there's any minute chance of filing a successful lawsuit then we the PS3 gamers will!... One of us will rise up to meet the challenge...
Wow, you sound stupid... how could you file a lawsuit? They didn't sign a contract stating PS3 will recieve all Skyrim DLC's. You sir are a derp!
No its a law that they HAVE to put it on ALL 3 consoles if its advertised for all of them and if it isn't given to all of the consoles they are breaking the law so sega is right you are wrong. YOU LOSE GOOD DAY.
I love how the ps3 hoards its exclusives but every other console is expected to share. Double standards
If that happens i recon Bethesda should give them a crappy DLC its a DLC they dint specify if the'll have all of them MWAHAHAHA.
Honestly If you look at the case it will tell ya Expansion packs will be released on PS3. If they come out and say No they will not, THEN they have violated that contract, because then it would be a lie that it was going to happen. Until they come out and say No it will not come out,il keep my mouth shut.
That is NOT a violation of contract. Read the back of your instruction manual. The part where it says that the company reserves the right to cancel this agreement at their discretion.
Implied conditions as to quality or fitness18 Subject to this and any other Act, there is no implied warranty or condition as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of goods supplied under a contract of sale or lease, except as follows:(a) if the buyer or lessee, expressly or by implication, makes known to the seller or lessor the particular purpose for which the goods are required, so as to show that the buyer or lessee relies on the seller's or lessor's skill or judgment, and the goods are of a description that it is in the course of the seller's or lessor's business to supply, whether the seller or lessor is the manufacturer or not, there is an implied condition that the goods are reasonably fit for that purpose; except that in the case of a contract for the sale or lease of a specified article under its patent or other trade name, there is no implied condition as to its fitness for any particular purpose;(b) if goods are bought by description from a seller or lessor who deals in goods of that description, whether the seller or lessor is the manufacturer or not, there is an implied condition that the goods are of merchantable quality; but if the buyer or lessee has examined the goods there is no implied condition as regards defects that the examination ought to have revealed;(c) there is an implied condition that the goods will be durable for a reasonable period of time having regard to the use to which they would normally be put and to all the surrounding circumstances of the sale or lease;(d) an implied warranty or condition as to quality or fitness for a particular purpose may be annexed by the usage of trade;(e) an express warranty or condition does not negative a warranty or condition implied by this Act unless inconsistent with it. i think section b and c comply
Wrong. B and C comply with the original copy of the game. There is nothing in the contract about DLC, nor will there ever be. DLC is optional, not mandatory. Whether promised, advertised, or not, there is nothing to stop a company from publishing DLC for one platform and not the other regardless of the reasons.
wrong if dlcs were an issue than those of use who had the options to purchase for differnent consoles could of had that choice. however; they stated as the case on the backs states that dlcs would be made available to ps3 owners. this is text book false advertising. if the product is flawed then it should be made to have a full recall and people given the opiton to return their product for refunds or face false advertisement lawsuits.
Yes but they have said there working on if someone files a lawsuit Bethesda will simple say were working on it show evidence and walk a way fine.
I would prefer if they just said that dawnguard is coming out so i would have to wait anymore and check every day to see if there is any news
I don't do Twitter, but from just looking at Hines' feed over the last few months, in my opinion anyways, its obvious he can choose which tweets he acknowledges. And i don't think we see every tweet he gets and refuses to comment on.
Personally, I love Bethesda's games and buy them for both my 360 and PS3, however, I've decided to boycott anything that Bethesda has their name on including being the publisher, until they make good at bringing the Skyrim DLC to the PS3. I figure by the time they release the PS3 DLC for Skyrim, I'll be able to pick up Dishonored for about $10. Dishonored looks like a great game and in normal circumstances I would buy it on day one, but I'll pass on it for now. Bethesda needs to take a serious look at how the Skyrim DLC/PS3 ordeal is tarnishing their reputation.
