In the last couple of weeks there has been a positive move on the Skyrim DLC front for the PS3. Owners of the Xbox 360 have three DLCs more than what is available on the PS3, but there is good news that they will be coming to the PS3 in 2013, and Dragonborn will be the first.
However the lack of the DLC on the PS3 for Skyrim doesn’t mean that the game is not worth it.
Skyrim for PS3 a solid gaming experience even without any DLC
PS3 owners don’t have Hearthfire, Dawnguard or Dragonborn. But many PS3 owners have spent over 350 hours on Skyrim and they are pleased with it.
The version of Skyrim on the PC comes packed with mods and DLC, however PC owners say that Bethesda don’t get the expansions out fast enough. Xbox 360 owners meanwhile have the DLC but they are lacking mods; and PS3 owners don’t have Dawnguard or other DLCs and they are feeling left out of it.
There is something for all owners to moan about with Skyrim, however one thing remains the same and that is that the game is superb whether you have access to new DLC or not. The game provides many hundreds of hours of play and this means that it is excellent value for money.
Many fans have forgotten this aspect and this is down to the fact that the cycle of DLC has been well publicised and then fans have been let down. So if you are still waiting for the release of Hearthfire, Dragonborn and Dawnguard, just think back to all the fun you had with Skyrim without these expansions.
PS3 fans do want all the packs on their console and the majority of PS3 owners will not throw away their console and swap it for the Xbox 360 just for this. Pete Hines said through Twitter that he felt what owners of the PS3 were going through and he would let them know what he knew, as soon as he could.
