Will PS3 users ever get Dawnguard?


At the end of another week, it would have been nice to give you some positive news regarding the PS3 release of Dawnguard for Skyrim. Sadly though, there’s still no good news to report, with Bethesda now saying that the release of Hearthfire for PS3 may complicate things further.

Pete Hines has been the main communication point for disgruntled fans and unfortunately, he’s had to endure a fair amount of abuse over the missing first expansion on PS3. In his latest round of answering questions from fans, Hines revealed that the team are still working on the issue and that they don’t have a new update other than what they released during PAX.

However, there was a new twist in the plot to tell you about, as Hines also revealed that releasing further DLC on the PS3 would complicate the situation even more with Dawnguard. Having said that, he also gave a glimmer of hope to one user by saying that he remained ‘hopeful’ that the problem would eventually be solved.


Have you now accepted the fact that Dawnguard may never release on the PS3 and have moved on to other games? Or are you still frustrated on the original lack of communication and assumption that both Dawnguard and Hearthfire would release 30 days after Xbox 360?

Now that the company has said that releasing Hearthfire would complicate things, that does suggest that we won’t be getting Hearthfire either – if there even was a set time. It’s a shame how things have turned out, especially since the majority of the amazing DLC packs for Oblivion worked without a hitch on PS3.

Are you still holding Bethesda responsible for this, or have you eased up on your original aggression?
