The wait for Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 seems to be forever. Bethesda Softworks, the publisher of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, have not released any definite date for availability Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 download content. It has been over six months since, Xbox 360 and PC gamers have been enjoying the Dawnguard expansion for Skyrim. To add insult to injuries, Bethesda had also released another expansion Hearthborn for Xbox 360 back in October. That makes PS3 gamers two versions behind. Rumor has it, to appreciate the patience of PS3 gamers Bethesda might release the Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn [the next Skyrim expansion] at a subsidized rate for PS3 platform.
Skyrim has been very popular among gamers right from its launch in November 2011. Bethesda released the first full expansion to the game – Dawnguard, in June 2012 for Xbox 360 and in August 2012 for PCs. However, due to technical issues, Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 DLC never saw the light of the day. Even though PS3 is a powerful platform, Skyrim had persistent problems with it. PS3 users had complained about slow performance due to the way the game saves data. However, failure to have download content for Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 has been infuriating for gamers.
Bethesda had taken the blame on itself, saying that the technical specs of PS3 are more than enough to run the game, however adding more content [like Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 expansion] has been flagged with many problems. Even Sony had started working alongside Bethesda to resolve the issue. Recently, it was announced that the third expansion of the game – Dragonborn, would be available for PS3.
If Bethesda is able to release the Dragonborn DLC, then it might as well release Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 and Hearthfire DLCs. It remains to be seen if the content, especially the much awaited Skyrim Dawnguard PS3, is available at a subsidized price.
