Bethesda “Not Positive They Can Solve” Dawnguard Issues On PS3

It’s no secret that PlayStation 3 owners have felt a little slighted over The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While Xbox 360 and PC owners have been treated to the joys of the mammoth RPG with little to no dilemmas, PS3 players have been saddled with a bug-ridden version that has become virtually unplayable for some.

These issues have carried over to Skyrim’s first DLC expansion, Dawnguard, as well. Whereas the 360 and PC versions have been out since June and August, respectively, the PS3 edition is still nowhere to be found.

And, according to a blog post from developer Bethesda today, that DLC may still be a ways off from making it to Sony’s console, if it’s even coming at all.

The post states that Skyrim “requires a lot of resources,” and that large pieces of added content like Dawnguard only further the complexity of its development.

“We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone,” the post continues, before promising that the developer is “working hard” to get things settled. The fact that additional content—such as the upcoming Hearthfire expansion—is also coming down the pipe is not helping either.

“This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve,” the developer continues in perhaps the most disheartening statement to PS3 owners, “but we are working together with Sony to try to bring you this content.”

Nevertheless, the company does make sure to say that it understands PlayStation players’ possible “frustration” at this time, and that they will keep everyone informed when there are any to updates to relay. We’ll do the same.
