Sony has a 'big dev support team' working with Bethesda on Dawnguard

A Sony support team is working closely with Bethesda to bring Skyrim's Dawnguard DLC to PS3. Dawnguard launched on the Xbox 360 in June and on PC in August. Bethesda previously notes that Skyrim is a "massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources" and it's not sure if it will be able to reach a resolution on the DLC with Sony.

Sony's Adam Boyes echoes that sentiment to Kotaku. "We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems," Boyes says. "We have a big, broad dev support team that works closely with Bethesda – and with all of our partners – to work with them to solve any sort of issues they have along the way.

"Of course, I always want everything to work always for everyone. I can't promise any kind of resolution or timeline but can say that everyone involved is trying their best to get this stuff working."

Whether Sony is working with Bethesda or not I think the chances of Dawnguard or any DLC coming to the PS3 version is very slim. The game was poorly developed and designed for the PS3 hardware, at this point there isn't really anyting Sony can do to help Bethesda salvage this mess. I expect after Dishonored is released, Bethesda will announce that no DLC will be coming to the PS3 version of Skyim and they'll pretend they're disappointed and care for their fanbase, just like they always do.

Home, the game to play if you're having a gender identity crisis.

The Neotopians, need to realize that the free market will decide which project will get funded. If the free market doesn't want Neotopia, they will have to get over that.

One major question that we all need to be asking: Why isn't the dev team working on fixing the entire game BEFORE working on Dawnguard?

The better question would be why didn't Bethesda call Sony when the game was still in development before release on 11-11-11 last year?

 

Tool(Todd) Howard admitted 2 months after release they knew the PS3 version could run into memory problems.

Tool(Todd) decides to blame it on gamers saying it's "playstyle, quests completed, and what you have hot keyed." Funny that the game is advertised as "A complete open world for you to explore any way you choose."

 

If Bethesda really cared about "quality" and wanting everyone to enjoy Skyrim the way they want us to, they should have been on the horn to Sony before release, not 9 months later when it's time to cash grab DLC.
