We’ve been tracking the problems with getting Skyrim Dawnguard on the PS3 since it landed, and we met major disappointment after investing hundreds of hours on the PS3 with Skyrim, although we were one of the lucky ones with an Xbox 360 for testing all DLC. During this time we’ve also tracked comments from Pete Hines on Twitter, which have been constant on the subject of Skyrim Dawnguard for PS3 although that all changed over the last couple of weeks.
More recently there has been social silence in regard to Hines talking about Skyrim Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and any future DLC for the Sony PS3 platform. This could mean a number of things, but there’s a growing belief among gamers that this is a clear sign towards the release of Skyrim DLC on the PS3. Have you noticed Hines keeping extra quiet about Skyrim PS3 DLC over the last week or so?
Clues in the recent Skyrim 1.8 patch certainly support this possibility, although what will be more interesting is how they launch Skyrim Dawnguard on the PS3. Just at the standard price or with some sort of gift considering the long delay, so we’ll be watching this unfold with interest over the coming days/weeks.
We should also mention that this silence could just be Hines and Bethesda moving on from the PS3 issues, and hoping that gamers do the same, although we find this extremely hard to believe. They’d need to address the outcome eventually, so in our opinion it looks like we’re about to get a release date for Skyrim Dawnguard and other DLC on the PS3 at last. Do you feel optimistic?
