Things are now looking a lot more positive for PS3 owners of Skyrim and in turn, Bethesda’s reputation as well. The developer has finally confirmed that PS3 users will be getting their Dawnguard fix, and also the two other outstanding expansions as well in Dragonborn and Hearthfire. We have the confirmed discounted prices to bring you now, as Bethesda has revealed that they will be half price during the first week of each respective release.
All three expansions are due out sometime in February, with Dragonborn first to arrive at the beginning of the month. Dawnguard and Hearthfire will then follow afterwards, but so far no solid release dates have been set. What we can confirm though is that prices will be 50% off for the first week of release only, so you don’t want to waste time deciding whether or not to buy them – they are all well worth the money.
As a reminder, Dragonborn usually costs $20 and was the price that Xbox 360 players had to pay as part of their exclusive release before any other platform. It now appears that PS3 users are getting a very good deal indeed as you’ll only need to pay $10 for it when it releases in February.
The same applies to Dawnguard as well, with Pete Hines confirming the prices in a recent Tweet. Hearthfire will be even cheaper as well and an absolute bargain at just $2.5 instead of $5. It means that even though PS3 users had to put up with the frustrating wait and silence from Bethesda, it looks like they are ultimately getting the best deal with three DLC expansions that should be bug free upon release after first appearing on Xbox 360 and PC.
Xbox 360 users won’t be happy about the fact that they paid full price, but there’s still the possibility that the next DLC pack, rumored to be called Redguard will still end up as an Xbox 360 exclusive. It’s funny that Bethesda are now taking a little heat from Xbox 360 users when it has been PS3 users complaining the most since the DLC problems began.
Will you be picking up Dawnguard, Dragonborn and Hearthfire for a combined price of $22.5 when they arrive on PS3? You can’t argue with that price, as Bethesda has been pretty fair on this occasion.
