Skyrim Dawnguard DLC has touched down for the PC, but it seems that the release of Skyrim Dawnguard DLC for the Sony PS3 has been delayed, with Bethesda stepping forward to claim that they will not go ahead with a release until they themselves are satisfied with the kind of performance the game gives on Sony’s aging console. Bethesda mentioned, “We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.”
I say that is a pretty good principle to stick to – after all, no one would enjoy a gimped video game simply because it is out early, and the developers might as well take some extra time required to polish up the game and remove whatever major bugs there are so that gamers do not end up frustrated and turned off completely. As for those who are rocking to an Xbox 360 or a PC, they have managed to enjoy Skyrim Dawnguard DLC since last night, and judging by initial impressions, PS3 owners take heart – it is going to be well worth the wait!
