Skyrim Dawnguard DLC debacle and PS3 exodus unwarranted
The ongoing saga concerning the lack of downloadable content for the PS3 version of Skyrim, has given some reason to believe those owning a Sony console may transfer their gaming over to the Xbox just because of this issue revolving around one title. We understand that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a popular game, but we cannot see that this is enough to warrant an exodus, just to play Dawnguard DLC as well as the other two.
Many gamers would say this is ridiculous, and they would rather direct their issues with Bethesda, and refrain from buying anything that has their name involved. Talking about whether PS3 owners have given this idea much thought, Product Reviews questions whether a PlayStation 3 revolution would be the next logical step for those waiting for the content that has been made available to the Xbox 360. Although we have empathy for PS3 Skyrim fans, we find it hard to believe many would consider trading in their console for an Xbox, just because of DLC issues with one game.
We are not saying that the frustration hasn’t caused this become apparent in some cases, as we have heard reports of those who have trading in their console for a Microsoft model, and this is just so they can play Dawnguard and Dragonborn. When you think of the extra cost of getting a drastically reduced price for your existing console to then buy another along with the game, this sounds like a spur of the moment reflex that some gamers can afford to do just to play the DLC they have been desperately been waiting for.
Recently we have heard that some content is coming to the PS3, but are still in the dark whether it will be one of the three packages, although many loyal Sony console owners would be quite smug about an exclusive DLC, in regards to those who have jumped ship. Although we have hopes that it will be the first one of the three, there are no expectations that Bethesda will offer anything else as way of an apology, although we would like to see a drastic discount if all the DLC does appear.
At the beginning of the week, we wrote the lack of PS3 DLC update put into perspective, and we acknowledge Sony gamers will feel hard done by, but there are many that have lost any enthusiasm for this altogether, with some suggesting when it comes it comes, that’s if it ever arrives. The wait has become a drain for many and regular communication on how they are getting along would be a polite way for Bethesda to let gamers in on their progress reassuring us there is hope. Do you find that those turning to the Xbox 360 are just giving Bethesda more money by buying their game twice? Maybe you feel it is silly to assume gamers would get an Xbox because of the lack of support for one title.
