Skyrim Dragonborn confirmed for PS3, Dawnguard and Hearthfire ambiguity

With Xbox 360 owners now enjoying their third Skyrim DLC, those on the PS3 are still waiting for their first. However, while looking on the Bethesda Blog yesterday we found a little treat, it seems as though Dragonborn will be coming to the PS3 early next year, but we find it a little worrying that nothing has been said in regards to Dawnguard and Hearthfire.

It’s certainly great news that PS3 owners will finally be getting Skyrim DLC, but with Bethesda saying “We’re also happy to announce Dragonborn will be available on PS3 and PC early next year.” It all seems a little vague. We already knew that they were working on the new content, so come on just nail down a date and give it to us already.

While many of our readers have expressed that they would much prefer to have Dawnguard, we’re pretty certain that they would be happy with whatever new downloadable content they get. Personally I would be happy if Bethesda just owned up and said that PS3 users would not be getting Dawnguard and Hearthfire, at least we would finally know where we stand.

However, if this were the case then surly a patch offering many new items would go a long way in making up for the past several months of pain. Okay not pain exactly but you know what I mean.

The more I think about Bethesda only stating on their blog that Dragonborn will be coming to the PS3 next year, we have to wonder what has happened to all the work they have supposedly been doing on the other two over the months? When we look at it like that we start to wonder if Bethesda are being completely truthful – maybe we won’t even see Dragonborn on the PlayStation 3 in 2013 because we’ve heard it all before?

Then again because it’s a separate map and not linked to Skyrim directly maybe that’s the reason why they have finally managed to get the DLC to work on Sony’s games console?

    its a disgrace to see this, Bethesda has ruined skyrim for me because it just proves they are greedy slobs who are just in it for the money. This better not happen for when fallout 4 comes out, or im suing!

    Bethesda say they are making progress. They have had over a year since the original game came out and they havnt released a single piece of dlc

    I can feel the pedant in me trying to take over… Argh! Nooooo! URGHHHHHHHHH!!…….. *Surely* HEH.

    I bet it only gets released on PC next year, and PS3 users’ll have to wait another 6 months.

    I guess Bethesda is hoping the Mayans were right and the world comes to an end so they dont have to pony up on their “promises”

  • Veronica Johnson Lundgaard

    Others have said PS3 users can get Dragonborn because it is set in a new location, and the performance issues could be fixed and that the PS3 version was having problems with Dawnguard and Hearthfire because they were set in Skyrim. I’m concerned that any future content set in Skyrim will be unavailable to PS3 because of said performance issues. It will be just like Oblivion where we got less DLC.

    bethesda let us down

    I Agree with Bear the new the Mayans Prediction so they desided till next year but how do you know if there keeping promise they probs lied about all that word

    I’m so through waiting on this. I’ve been wanting an X-Box 360 with all of the Microsoft integration of Mobile, gaming, and desktop operating systems anyway. This is just the nail in the coffin as to why I should go with one over the PS3. I think i’m just about done waiting.
