Skyrim Dawnguard DLC leads to PS3 switching claims

By Daniel Chubb - Nov 19, 2012

We understand how good the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC is after spending hours playing it on the Xbox 360, and previously investing over 500 hours on the PS3 playing Skyrim, but the idea that any user would trade-in their PS3 thanks to no Skyrim Dawnguard, or Dragonborn, just sounds like madness. The problem is this claim is being made by a growing number of gamers after months of no Skyrim PS3 DLC, which would’ve certainly been expected by these people when they first purchased the game.

It is fair to say that the upset caused would result in comments like this in the heat of the moment, but we’ve also heard from a few people that actually traded in their PS3 and went and purchased an Xbox 360, which had been just for the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC, and of course any future content like Dragonborn. It seems crazy and you can count of most switching console claims to be rubbish, but it does seem a little sad that this kind of thing is even being considered.

The majority of PS3 users want Skyrim Dawnguard still at the right price – we posted an article just over a week ago that had well over 200 comments, and this revealed that the majority of PS3 gamers would still like some sort of Skyrim DLC, and are keeping a copy of the game in-case it ever arrives. We’ve seen previous confirmation that some sort of new content is on the way, but thanks to the lack of clarity with the way Bethesda communicate little is known what this might be.

What do you think about the people claiming to be switching consoles for Skyrim DLC? You got to understand why they feel this way, but to sell a PS3 just for some DLC seems complete madness, even if it is such a good game like Skyrim. We’d also like to point out that claims of the PS3 RAM being the problem are rubbish, which is certainly not the reason why no Skyrim DLC has arrived on PS3. You have to consider other games have been just fine and Bethesda’s history with bringing content to the PS3 hasn’t been the best, especially when compared to what looks like PC/Xbox 360 favoritism in the past. You can also read about the empathy asked for in a recent tweet with Pete Hines here, which strangely revealed Hines has to check to see if Skyrim DLC is coming to the PS3, or what looked like his hands being tied when it comes to information sharing.
