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?
