PS3 Skyrim Dawnguard & Hearthfire: Turning Down The Hype Machine

By  | 

There’s been a softening of attitude towards Skyrim from PS3 owners. Yes, Xbox 360 owners have three lots of DLC more than PS3 fans, but Bethesda has been working hard to get DLC out to the PS3, and we now know that it’s coming to the PS3 this month on in the form of Dragonborn.

Skyrim for PS3: slow DLC rollout doesn’t make game any less awesome

Despite the lack of DLC on the PS3, I’ve played for more than 400 hours on Skyrim, and it’s been brilliant, so the added DLC packs, featuring Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfire are a bonus rather than a necessity.

Skyrim PC has modding capability, but it’s slow to get DLC. The Xbox 360 gets the DLC, but there’s no modding. The PS3 owners are worst off, as they have no DLC at all….for now.

Each platform has a problem with Skyrim, really, but it’s the lack of DLC that’s getting most attention. What’s easy to forget, though, is how good Skyrim is even without DLC.

Of course we still want DLC for the PS3, and Pete Hines of Bethesda has been really sympathetic to PS3 owners, giving them updates as and when he’s been able. He’s now able to say that Dragonborn will be out early this year.

There’s been loads of hype about DLC, too, with promises that have fallen through, so it’s been easy to get angry and frustrated over it all. Not long to wait now, though!
