Skyrim Dawnguard DLC on PS3 remains dateless

As we enter another week, we still don’t have any positive news to bring you regarding the PS3 release of Dawnguard – the first expansion pack for Skyrim that has now been available on the Xbox 360 for more than four months.

It’s a real shame the way the situation has unfolded for PS3 users, with the most frustrating aspect being that there doesn’t appear to be any sort of progress at all. You would think that putting a simple expansion pack on the PS3 hardware wouldn’t be as difficult as what has been reported – especially for a developer as distinguished as Bethesda.

Instead though, we’re left to small updates from Bethesda’s PR man Pete Hines, as he has again taken to Twitter to provide the latest progress report on the missing expansion. Unfortunately, it’s not good news though as he has replied to a user stating that there is still no release date for Dawnguard on the PS3, and perhaps even more worrying – ‘no guess of a date’ either.

From the user’s Tweet though, it’s clear to see that fans are still desperate for the content to release, regardless of how long it has taken so far for Dawnguard to come out after all of the initial delays. There is obviously a lot of anger still swirling around, but Bethesda can make up for it just by releasing the content once and for all.

Fans will be hoping that the missing Dawnguard content will be Bethesda’s number one priority right now, putting any further DLC plans for Skyrim after Hearthfire on the back burner – the same should really apply to Dishonored as well, which will hit shops in a few weeks time.

Does it alarm you that Bethesda still has absolutely no idea when Dawnguard will release on PS3? You would think that internally, they would at least have an idea, but based on Pete Hines’ latest Tweet that doesn’t appear to be the case. Are you still holding on for a release, or have you given up hope? Don’t forget to check out the Gangnam Style mod here.

I honestly don’t care anymore. Bethesda messed up and is now stalling around. Assassins creed is coming out soon. So I couldn’t give two f****. And dishonored looks shitty

We PS3 got Gran turismo 5 , and what do you Shitbox got ? Fus Ro Da ?

Bom Kitinan

If anyone ever play Dawnguard on Xbox you’ll know that it doesn’t ran well it crash too often and it still have bug that they can not fix Xbox can’t handle any game anymore i suggest bethesda should turn to PS3 a superior platform instead of Shitbox
Hell Even Rockstar are making the game called ” Agent ” Exclusive only on PS3 platform
So suck on that Xbox fanboys hahaha

Bethesda consistently releases broken PS3 product. Inept or lazy programmers/coders? A corporate culture disinterested in dev for PS3 tech? Something more sinister? Signs point to any… and possibly all. Whatever the reason(s), Bethesda has shown a lack of respect to PS3 fans — this SKYRIM debacle only being the most recent example (OBLIVION GOTY is still broken!). And instead of making amends, Bethesda fans the flames. I’m done with them… and all of their future broken games. Bethesda killed Tamriel for me and many others. *waves goodbye*

I can’t believe in 6 years they still haven’t learnt that their shitty ports to PS3 from 360 never run well.

I said f**k bethesda, i now have MoP (mists of pandaria) at least blizzard actually perfects the game before releasing it, so basically, bethesda is getting beaten by a company that only works for computers. Bethesda can go to hell

I bought a PS3 ONLY to play Skyrim…PS has always been superior to other gaming consoles, imo…guess I should’ve just bought a new computer and played PC like I did with Oblivion! Had no idea that getting the expansions would be such a disaster!

Bethesda…wtf?

This is not Bethesdas fault. No, they should not have claimed that there would be DLC before they knew that there would be. Skyrim is a huge game and PS3 is a really really inefficient system and you are lucky that you even got Skyrim on the same date as everyone else. Oblivion was 1 year late for PS3

Well I know that Game Developers make for the lowest spec console and port to the rest, so they run on the lowest spec console so theres no problems, In this case the Xbox 360. Just thought I’d mention it =D

As a PC user, I’ll continue to laugh at this whole situation.

bethesda is lazy and they are sell outs, dawngaurd didnt do as great on the 360 or pc as they had hoped so they dont want to bother trying to bring it to ps3 anytime soon

I’ve given up tbh. it shows that Beth really don’t care about the PS3 market, their loyal fans I certainly wont be buying another game that Beth is involved in

Why all the hate for the PS3? The problem is Bethesda’s not Sonys notice how no other companys have the problems they have and then any response frrom them is also of a poor quality, we should all feel let down.
Also if the content doesn’t come we should all be entitled to a full refund as Skyrims case claims that DLC will be available

Can everyone stop being stupid and saying that “bethesda is trying to screw ps3 users up the woo hoo and that they are just obsessing over dishonoured”. well this is untrue, the only reason that you would see dishonoured everywhere is that bethesda has a huge advertising/marketing division. An example of this is with apple products, do you think that they have low level products but high advertising, well except for those pc lovers. so instead of raging and caring on with your testosterone filled bodies just go and give bethesda a break.

And one more thing I think Microsoft did this on purpose because they either have a ps3 in their studios to check if their are any bugs and they take advantage of this and I have a solution why don’t they reduce trees,lien wraps and other things or release a demo if any one see this then plz send this to Bethesda twitter account

Well why cant they reduced the items in the game besides there’s no point of boycottting Bethesda games because half of the money goes to Sony

By the time Bethesda done F-ing around, GTA 5 will be out. I spent 2 years playing GTA games before even realizing Bethesda existed. So when GTA games comes out ( no rush guys) Bethesda will find itself back into oblivion as I drive a Cheetah down the roads smashing into buses…for a very long time…Good Luck Bethesda. I don’t think you will ever see me playing ANY Bethesda games again or watching your crappy movies.

Something very similar happened with Fallout 3’s DLC on the PS3, it was released about nine or so months later complete with all of the lag, bugs and glitches that Bethesda didn’t bother to fix. I don’t want to think about what that means for Dawnguard on the PS3. 🙁

If Bethesda had made sure the main game worked properly first then we wouldn’t be in this mess, it still doesn’t work properly for some people nearly 9 or 10 months later.

I’m going to buy Dawnguard when it comes out, however my future in games from Bethesda does not look so bright.

Why couldn’t Bethesda do this with Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas DLC. The thing STILL crashes all the time, and they released it, and never fixed the problem! They shouldn’t have released it at all if they didn’t work out all the bugs. But it IS Bethesda’s fault, not Sony’s. Bethesda made a really crappy engine that isn’t totally compatible with Sony’s obviously superior hardware/software. You don’t hear Rockstar Games having similar trouble with their DLC, or any other major company that makes QUALITY games. So the blame is on Bethesda in my opinion. Maybe if they’d spend a… Read more »

My fellow ps3 gamers I think its time we accept that dawnguard will never ever come to playstation 3 Bethesda are just trolling us now they’ll just keep feeding us false hope until the GTYE comes out and we are forced to purchase it to get dawnguard. Bethesda have shown their true colours well I say we should teach them a lesson TO ALL PS3 OWNERS DO NOT PURCHASE DISHONORED the lack of sales would be enough for Bethesda to take notice at how angry we are over dawnguard I know you must think dishonoured looks good but resist the… Read more »

bethesda has fallen and it cant get up

I read on another article that Bethesda should have created a separate engine for the PS3 instead of porting the game and putting the blame on RAM! This is what happens when companies become lazy and greedy.

This is ridiculous. What is so hard about adding this dlc to the ps3. Nobody else has issues, so why is this particular dlc any different. I mean cmon!, you made the whole fn game on a ps3, yet you cant do a little addon? Dumb.

There is nothing wrong with the ps3.Bethdesa needs to release more dlc and leave ps3 out of it until it is released in a GOTY edition disk for ps3.Would be great to know that one is buying a game with all the content…I’ll always trust Bethdesa to make brilliant expansions with fantastic new creatures,armor,weapons,story lines,and all the other little goodies that come with it(and extra realms to explore like the Shivering Isles is always supurb).I don’t know if this is some way to knock down ps3,if that is the case they must get their priorities straight.The Elder Scrolls means much… Read more »

Makes me mad at Bethesda, not PS3. My money will go elsewhere. Bethesda should know better and is losing profits of PS3 users.

Really dude? Its bethesdas fault not playstation! The ps3 is superior to 360 so they have to make it stoop to the 360’s level. And name one saga thats done this,just one. COD at least relases the damn dlc. Your a clueless moron
