We have heard a number of our readers talking about the blocking of Skyrim Dawnguard news for the PS3 DLC, which is understandable considering the amount of time it has been since this downloadable content released on both the Xbox 360 and PC. These conspiracy theories are becoming more common when it comes to certain gamers talking about Dawnguard and Hearthfire seeing a release on PS3, but it looks like this belief has been clarified directly from Pete Hines.
You can see a tweet below that asked Hines if there’s an “arrangement” with Bethesda that stops them revealing news about PS3 Skyrim DLC, which would obviously include Hearthfire, Dawnguard, and the future Dragonborn content. Hines replied with a short tweet explaining there’s “no such thing” in place, so there you have it PR readers, although you’ll have to take his word for it.
This response from Hines amazed some people that he actually answered, and also led to more questions about the confirmed upcoming PlayStation 3 DLC. Some gamers are wondering if the upcoming Skyrim content will be old Xbox 360 DLC, or something new, although Hines didn’t answer these direct questions obviously.
Did you miss the confirmation that the PS3 is getting some Skyrim DLC finally? If you missed the recent tweet in regard to new Skyrim DLC for PC and PS3, then you should see our earlier article that includes the tweet, insight into this tease, and of course some reactions from gamers. What do you expect the new PS3 content to be, and do you still hope Dawnguard will arrive on PS3 or have you moved on?
Bottom-line: No matter what a number of PS3 users say there will be a lot of gamers wanting Dawnguard still on the PS3, and they should considering how much fun we had during our 400+ hour review, but we can’t help but feel that Bethesda has been damaged a lot when it comes to PS3 users having faith in them.
