Skyrim Dawnguard for PS3 inevitable, price undecided

We know that a number of PlayStation 3 owners have moved away from Skyrim due to the long wait for Dawnguard on the PS3 platform, although if you take Bethesda’s latest comments into consideration it seems that Skyrim Dawnguard for PS3 is inevitable. This is a piece of content well worth playing at some point if it does finally arrive on PS3, which we enjoyed on Xbox 360 after first investing over 400 hours into the Sony console, and we’ll never forget the fun had after deciding on Lord Harkon’s vampire gift. It also seems that this aging Skyrim DLC will arrive on PS3 at a reduced price, considering Bethesda’s recent comments about pricing being undecided.

More Dawnguard for PS3 promises from Bethesda — within the last 48 hours an update had been published on the official blog about Dragonborn’s release. This article included a few words about the development of Skyrim Dawnguard on PS3, and the developers make it clear that Dragonborn will be delivered as the first PS3 DLC thanks to it being easier to release. This shows that the Dawnguard problems are much bigger than some PS3 players originally thought, although it had been made clear that work will continue “on Hearthfire and Dawnguard for PS3” after.

Bethesda will provide a solid PS3 release date and price details for both Skyrim Dawnguard and Hearthfire, although at this time they don’t have an idea of when that will be. So it’s clear PS3 owners will at some point receive both Dawnguard and Hearthfire, but will you want this DLC once it launches? The price would be easy to work out considering we know what it cost on Xbox 360 and PC already, so it makes sense that Bethesda doesn’t have an “idea” on pricing thanks to their being a discount likely. This is the very least we’d expect thanks to how long PS3 players have had to wait.

Do you think Skyrim Dragonborn for PS3 should be at the same price as Xbox 360? We’re happy that Bethesda made the choice to release this DLC first rather than waiting even longer for the first Skyrim DLC to arrive on PS3, but should PS3 players be given a make-good with pricing? You can read about problems starting the Dragonborn DLC in this article, although we’d love to hear from PS3 players and how they feel about Bethesda’s latest promises in the comments.

Who wants to bet that the 360 gets a SKYRIM GOTY edition with all dlc in the box before the ps3 gets a single dlc? I own both, but made the mistake of getting skyrim for the ps3. Never again.

Not buying Dragonborn until they make good on releasing Dawnguard and Hearthfire on PS3 at a discounted price. Bethesda, you’re going to have to try harder to get my hard earned cash. You already took me for $150 with my collectors edition…

Feels good to be a 360 owner. Suck it, butthurt morons, and get a 360 or shut the Hell up. XD

what the F@*#. Bethesda is really starting to piss me off. that’s now a third dlc for the F@*#EN 360 before the PS3 has gotten one. they could have at least released it on the same day. i’m F@*#EN fed up with Bethesda. it’s not just a matter of how big the problem is, but how much have they truely worked on it. they have now released two more dlc’s and at least one game. F@*# you Bethesda

to be honest idc about dawnguard my main intrest in hearthfire as for dragonborn it looks cool and all but if it gunna cost me $20 to get it im srry but no if x-box is getting this stuff sooner then every1 else then make them pay more for it also then and i mean that they shld have charged them $50 for dawnguard and $20 for hearthfire and another $50 for dragonborn but once ps3 and pc were released drop the price back to $20 $5 $20 anyway other then that all i gotta is this if dragonborn comes… Read more »

Does it matter? They’re likely going to #$%@ us over again. Discounts for Hearthfire and Dawnguard. Heavy discounts. They held it off for months. MONTHS. In that time, I bought six other much larger pieces of DLC for another game and completed all of them 100%. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter either way in the end. They’ve already lost a sizable fan base through this fiasco. I’ll buy the DLC, probably, but I’m never buying any of Bethesda’s products unless I know for a fact it was competently made. Sorry if you disagree with me, but Bethesda is a… Read more »

I think we PS3 players should get it at normal price. As long as we don’t get it half a year late, that is.

It’s great that we are getting a DLC but as long as a release date for every DLC especially Dawnguard is released, I won’t be satisfied

What makes me upset is Bethesda says this is the best content for for ps3 they dont know what ps3 user want or dont want. They stop all teams just to work on the third content. Pete Hines and Matt Grandstaff tweeted DLC takes time to be created they had seven months to get dawnguard four months to get heartfire working on the ps3 they also had sony team helping. What they are doing is giving the third DLC to ps3 hopping the ps3 user will forget about the first two. I said before they were going to release dragonborn… Read more »

Lets first see if dragonborn releases on ps3 and then talk about dawnguard

Some many stupid people seem to be commenting on here. I think we should pay full price for Dragonborn as it is going to be released on time, Dawnguard and Hearthfire should have a small discount. At the end of the day it is just a game, and people are whinging over just a bunch of pixels at the end of the day.

Bom Kitinan

Yeah we are finally about to get dawnguard hurayyy

No way, not buying anything from them. Hope they never release a game, made by them , to the ps3. Go F yourself, i had enough. Just fix the main game, give u some patches containing key weapons/items. After that, FCK OFF! For you guys who’s gonna buy dragonborn/dawnguard/heartfire DON’T! You’re doing exactly what they want, feeding their greeds. To hurt a company, we must strike where it matters. In their pockets. But Fck sometimes i wish i was some tough ass special forces soldier so i can blow BUgthesdas head off and make sure they never fck with us… Read more »

Should be a small discount due to delay as after this much time it’s very difficult to avoid spoilers that we wouldn’t have seen with a simultaneous release. So we won’t get the same level of pleasure afforded to other platforms.

i cant believe people really think the add ons should be discounted or free as nice as that would be. you are NOT ENTITLED to dlc . they are trying (however poorly the results) to bring us more content but just cause its taking a long time doesnt mean it should be discounted or free.

im also kind of impressed with how this guy somehow manages to write whole pararagraphs everyday tht basically say- nothing knew to report

Im disappointed of them to the point of having to buy a £300 PC just to play all of the DLCs and flog the PS3 version at a loss. They should now take into consider the pound note or the dollar bill they are holding in their hand right now and ask if they actually deserved to have it after f**king over Playstation 3 gamers because the impression it gives is that they only want to use my hard earned cash for toilet paper as soon as they manage to sell out faulty copies of their game. they should be… Read more »

Wow the exact same sh*t as before, “PC and PS3 will recieve Dawngaurd, one month after the Xbox timed exclusive expires” it’s happening again, seriously WTF, this supposed date will arrive probably around the middle of January (which will be unbelievable any way) and it’ll show up on steam, and thousands of Ps3 users will log onto the PSN and nothing, and week later we’ll have “We are experiencing minor difficulties with Dragonborn for the ps3, release date wil be porsponed till further notice” THIS WILL HAPPEN!!

i think its disgusting they stoped work on dawnguard to work on new content and as no date has been set just saying early 2013 isnt good enuff and dosent conferm any release when dawnguard was anounced it was stated there’d only be a 30 day waight but that was all lies untill a actual date is confirmed and it actuly arives i believe nothing from bethesda they do nothing but lie to ps3 owners just to pamper to the pathetic ego’s of xbox

Brad Linder

This is all you talk about. Skyrim for PS3. Almost every tweet. Have some variety like you used to.

Richard Lawrence

I don’t care about a discount, and got really confused when reading that. Does this mean Dragonborn will be released first or Dawnguard? So confused, I had my heart set on chaos and destruction as a Vampire, Already done it as a Werewolf. I am willing to pay full price for the DLC if it get’s me the DLC. Usually DLC like these would cost £7.99 for PS3, I never and probably wont ever understand Microsofts idea of making Xbox Live use Points instead of actual money. (basically Microsoft suck) I just want to know when this DLC is released,… Read more »
