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.
