Skyrim Dawnguard PS3: Punished for choosing wrong console
We all know the problems Skyrim fans owning a PlayStation 3 have been experiencing not having the opportunity to play Dawnguard PS3, and although Bethesda have been working hard to solve this we feel that gamers are being punished for choosing wrong console. This has led to some people choosing to abandon Dishonored, and even though this looks like a brilliant game Bethesda’s involvement is the main reason for this.
Many gamers like myself feel that when Dawnguard comes it comes and any hope of this diminished a while back, but we also expect Peter Hines and Bethesda to continue getting negative feedback because this has been expected for sometime now. In our most recent post, we spoke about a reprieve following the release of Dishonored and this title has gained plenty of positive responses giving us reason to believe Dawnguard is not featuring as highly in peoples thoughts anymore. The response for Dishonored has been great, although we understand this is a brilliant game, and maybe people are differentiating the fact that Bethesda did not develop the game.
Their involvement is with the publishing and we are sure they have plenty of input, so the likes of Peter Hinesis probably relishing the opportunity to relax from the continuous complaints from PS3 owners, for the time being anyway. In relation to this, some feel that the only leverage they have as a consumer is to disregard any games that Bethesda are involved with, until the issue with Skyrim is resolved. Those who own PlayStation 3 may feel that the similar priced Xbox 360 has the same price of game but PS3 owners are not getting the same.
Those lucky enough to have both consoles may feel that buying Skyrim on the PS3 was a wrong choice and many would demand an exchange for an Xbox version if they hadn’t invested so much time in the game, the same gamers will also be more likely to buy Dishonored on the Xbox. Therefore, we can see why PlayStation 3 owners feel they are owed something along the lines of free DLC or a discount for titles like Dishonored. The trouble with DLC is that it is an extra and those who originally bought Skyrim got what they paid for, but the expectation of decent added content is in the minds of the consumer nowadays, especially when it is promised on the back of the case.
Additionally, some feel that when one console receives it and another doesn’t, this is viewed as unfair, as well as false advertising. When it comes to PS3 gamers boycotting Dishonored because of Bethesda, do you feel this is a case of cutting of your nose despite your face? Or maybe you feel this is a stance that has to be made.

- Google’s Galaxy S4, play with a Nexus version at a price
Is not Bethesta's fault it's Sony for making such complex console. They shot themselves in the foot. That's why most ports run better on Xbox 360. GTA 4,Skyrim, Borderlands,RE6,Black Ops just to name a few. Dawnguard is lots of fun btw
What a great dlc. Loads of content and it really completed the game for me. And the updates that came with the game really set it off.
makes me wonder how many of these people on here complaining they don't have Dawnguard would actually buy it knowing that it is 20 bucks on xbox live
If dawnguard eventually comes to ps3 we should get it for free or at least with a great discount!!!!!!
Judging by some comments here, I still think PS3 gamers got the better deal. Just look at the comments by Xbox gamers and you'll see what I mean. Sure we don't get Dawnguard, but at least our intellect stays intact. It looks like the 360 actually turns people into zombies with an irresistible compulsion to go out and mindlessly attack owners of other platforms with immature, homophobic remarks. I can only presume creating an army of brain dead slaves is Micro$oft's latest dirty tactic to gain an edge over the competition. Stick with Sony, and stay human.
Everyone, just GIVE UP on skyrim. In my opinion it's a pretty boring game, and waiting months for dlc that is likely never going to be released? No. There are SO MANY better games on PS3!
It would be nice if Bethesda bite the bullet and throw money at getting the dlc sorted. It would be even nicer if then nobody bought the dlc as they had burnt their bridges.
Serves you right you dumbass PoS3 N4Gtards. Screw you $ony and your entire dying pauperstation brand!
Take a good look at the above comment, folks. This is what playing Xbox does to people. Truly a fate worse than death.
I Laughed At This Comment So Much Lol... Anyway I Don't See Why People Are Bitching About This.... Seriously Grow Up People And Stop Acting Like Kids... The Only Thing You Can Do Is Wait And See What Happens :) P.S Sony And Bethesda Are Legen..Wait For It..................Dary :P Believe It x
you ps3 H0mos dont deserve anything but the free membership you dnt pay for and ill go ahead and pay for the membership that cost and get DLC faster than you more often then you and cheaper (depending on your tenture and xbl rewards statas) XBL is superior and therefore gets what you want but cant have i cant stress how psn online suck compared to xbl our online dashboard has more features than yours by so much. we will always get or COD DLC quicker then you when you see most gameing commercials what logo do you see on the case at the end XBOX
ROFL, yes because i sooooooooo beg for COD, pffft. don't get me wrong i liked COD........back when i was a pre-teen. now that i am a "young adult" i have moved on to better FPS such as Arma or BF3. So what you pay for XBL whoopey doo. It doesn't mean jack ****. We can pay for PS+ but wait you dont pay attention now do you? Just because it has XBOX on the case isn't much for a point of argument, it just means that Microsoft paid them to do so nothing more. sorry for the long post
hmmmmm very interesting, however ps3 is here too stay just as xbox is too, the reason is cause of monopoly laws, xbox sprung up cause Ps was dominating the game market, there is no better system, only half-ass game developers who port instead of building on both systems
No thanks, captain douchebag. We'll continue to go ahead and keep our access to free online gaming, as well as our ability to utilize correct syntax, punctuation, and form proper sentences. We here at Sony actually prefer our superior intellect.
I won't buy any game Bethesda is involved with. Intell they give us a clear answer on the dlc. What the problem is, why they have be unable to fix it, and give us a probable date for release. If they can't do that. Then a deadline for when they well be giving up. At lest then we will know. Company's only understand profit margins. if you want then to change something. You have to cut that margin
I'm happy Bethesda is here. They made some of the best games ever created, which are also some of my favorites...However, I make my stand not to buy anything with "Bethesda" stamped on it with two firm feet. Why? Because they screwed up and it shouldn't go unpunished, period. That's the way of the world, why should they have an exception? The developer of this Dishonored game will survive, they are a subsidiary anyway (and a good little developer, that makes good games). And is it cutting my nose off despite my face? Maybe...but it's something I feel I must do, it makes me feel better. I once trusted Bethesda with my money/time/attention, because I KNEW they were going to be excellent. Now? I have second-thoughts. That doesn't mean I'm not going to be loyal to them in the future, on the contrary, I can't wait for that time to come about.
People have short attention spans. I love Skyrim, but now that I've beaten the game I'm falling out of the habit of playing, opting for Borderlands 2 or something equally new instead. The longer Bethesda takes to release DLC for Skyrim, which would breathe new life into a game that's falling by the wayside, the shorter that window of relevancy is. If Bethesda takes another three months to sort this all out, there is a chance their audience won't care anymore.
ah but good sir, that's what they want, they want peeps to lose interest so they can stop making excuses on *fixing*(non-existent) a *broken* (non-existent) dlc (what dlc?)
I doubt Bethesda really wants to lose this window of relevancy. They've made the product, Dawnguard and Hearthfire, and PS3 users want to buy it. But because Bethesda can't get this product to the buyers, they are missing out on millions of dollars of potential profit.
I love that when PC gamers complain about games, we're acting like entitled spoiled brats according to the Console gamers. So are the Playstation gamers this too?
i also think its pathetic that you ps3 owners would go to this extent to slag off a whole company because half of you would have no clue how hard it would be to hit your unresonable demands
i think its so funny how all you ps3 fags where like "they just letting xbox 360 players test it for us early :3" lol been out for months for us nothing for ps3 lolololol
your so cool, can i have your babies, i'll let them play CoD when they turn 5, just so they can call more ps3 owners fags(bundle of sticks).
You Xbox fanboys aren't exactly a good advert for the product, you know that? Does playing 360 turn people into obnoxious, immature children, or is that just Microsoft's market?
I don't trust Bethesda too make any more games for the ps3,I am not going to get rob again.False advertisment is illegal.
Just release it and patch it overtime like what you did with skyrim, i remember when it was hopelesley buggy.
I decided if DLC wouldn't come out before Christmas I'll buy X-box even if I don't like their controllers. :(
nah switch to the pc it will eventually kill the consol wars and come out dominant besides the pc has so much more abilities i mean have you ever tasted the grand monopoly of blizzard it its rts war with sid meyers civilization or the mmorpg wars with valve and steam? i mean it will win eventually but the consols will never die out they will only dimish just like sega and ateri have its bound 2 new consols will take there place and as a side note yes i know my spelling is bad on some names be a grammar nazi over it ill be modding sid meyers civilization 5
Bethesda should get their mind straight. We were promised this for about 7 months now and guess what WE STILL DON'T HAVE DAWNGUARD! I don't care if you have a contract with Microsoft if you release a game for multiple platforms you should care about each one at this point the game seems like it only should be for XBox especially with Hearthfire coming out. That is a huge expansion, it may not seem like it but I think it is. Bethesda what I'm basically saying is get your priorities straight and do something exclusive for PS3 because if you don't you're going to lose a lot of customers. Plus as TheChosenOne said it says on the back of the case in ALL CAPS ADD-ON CONTENT. Again, right now Skyrim feels like its only for XBox
I can't believe that after 6 years there are still people who sit here moaning that they should change to Xbox, every little thing that happens all you hear is "Sony this Sony that" Or "I should have got an Xbox blah blah" THIS IS BETHESDA'S FAULT NOT SONY's! Also the phrase is 'Cutting off your nose to spite your face'
The reason for the continued delay of a PS3 release of Dawnguard is hopefully due to the fact that Bethesda is re-coding numerous older parts of Skrim for PS3 so that they may fix performance problems with Dawnguard. They havent stated this publically because they are not sure if it will work. If this is the case, Bethesda you have my full support and patintce.
No it's that they are PORTING the xbox version into the ps3. Any NORMAL person would know that two rival companies would not put the same codings into their machines. Also the ps3 won't respond correctly to a ported DLC and game. Instead of cheaply imitating the xbox version for the PS3 why didn't they make Skyrim on the PS3's engine separately?
its been so long since i bought the playstation card that sony sent me a message saying its been a long time since i put in my code
in my opinion i feel that even though its been wat THREE mouths Beth should be given more time there have always been problems but they have always come through so dawnguard will come out but stop acting like its the end of the world because its not out yet
only problems they have they cause them self by not suporting the ps3 system to start with they should make porting games against the law because its only the consumer who gets screwed by it
were not getting punished for choosing the wrong console its not our fault its having problems you should change the title
