Bethesda is trying to give us an idea of the problems they are facing at the office.
PlayStation 3 Skyrim owners are waiting for the Dawnguard DLC for many months ahead of their Xbox 360 counterparts and Bethesda has shown some light to the issues.
“The problem is that in same cases, the performance of the game is not acceptable.”
“This is not a “Dawnguard” issue. This is a DLC on PS3 issue. It affected DG because it was the first one.” said Pete Hines, VP of PR at the company through his Twitter account.
Asked whether saves were the issues, “We have lots of saves sent to us from a wide variety of PS3 players.”
At the end of August, Bethesda has notified their customers officially about the DLC problems on PS3.
“Earlier in the month, we provided an update on Dawnguard’s status for PS3.”
“It’s been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we’re at with Dawnguard. Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizable content like Dawnguard.
“We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone. The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want.”
“Dawnguard is obviously not the only DLC we’ve been working on either, so the issues of adding content get even more complicated. This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve, but we are working together with Sony to try to bring you this content.”
“We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms.”
“When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that.”
