Skyrim’s PR disaster with Dawnguard on PS3

ProductReviews: From the perspective of most PS3 owners Dawnguard has been a marketing disaster for Bethesda, and if it wasn’t enough that PS3 players saw Microsoft’s money buying a timed exclusive now they have no idea when the first Skyrim DLC will land on their games console. It is fair that Dawnguard shouldn’t release with major problems, but its been 3 weeks since the Xbox 360 exclusive ended, 7 weeks since the Xbox 360 received the DLC, and over 9 months since the game launched. (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dawnguard DLC, PS3)

Shouldn't come as a surprise, Bethesda's communication skills have never been their strongest attribute.

Would be nice if they could get the game to stop crashing randomly. The 1.6 ps3 patch they just released seems to have fixed the crashing related to the water textures, but it still crashes randomly when loading a new area. Maybe when they finally release Dawnguard on the PS3 this issue will be taken care of. What is odd to me about this is that I never experienced issues with Fallout 3 personally...yet I remember reading it was plagued with similar issues.

Well I have to agree that it should've released by now. The studio obviously is have techincal problems on ps3 like they had on the original release. I'd guess that they'd rather get it fixed before the release, avoiding the bad press. I'd rather wait for a good released instead of getting something that needs a patch.

I bought the game and have not played it yet. I do know that from now on I will buy their games used.

Just do what I do. Buy the goty edition a year later at gamestop used for 15 bucks. Bethesda, i love their games, but they are losing the war when it comes to trolling. They are rich enough though. They fanboyism is so hard they don't even care if it bites them in their own butt.

people do not have the right to moan when they continue to support these types of developers that do shoddy versions of there games, either do it decent across the board or not at all, this bullshit has been going on from them this whole generation and still ps3 games get on there knees and suck

Bethsoft never makes quality products for playstation. I sold my copy 3 weeks after release.

Don't buy the DLC if you are unhappy with them, let them know with our money how we feel.

oblivion was better on the ps3 than the xbox in every aspect.

Why on Earth would anyone with a PS3 buy second hand DLC that's probably broken from a Dev that clearly could give a s*** about their PS3 fanbase?
