In the early days of this generation, the PS3 saw little support due to being notoriously difficult to work on. Games like Bayonetta and Orange Box struggled on the PS3, and some developers swore off the system. In time, it seemed like developers had worked out the kinks and most recent third party titles perform well on the PS3. The one notable exception has been Skyrim.
PS3 Skyrim players have struggled with bugs and slowdown since the game launched. Things aren’t getting any better for PS3 owners. As IGN.com reports, Bethesda is struggling to get Skyrim DLC running on the PS3, and they’re not sure they’ll ever be able to. Bethesda’s Global Community Manager offered this statement.
“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.”
Hopefully, Bethesda could work out these issues and give PS3 owners the content that others are enjoying. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes.
