Sony Says That They’ve Been “Working Closely” With Bethesda to Get Skyrim DLC Working on the PS3

Kotaku- People who bought Skyrim for the PS3 are pissed. And you can't necessarily blame them.

The story is too old to be commented.

Bethesda is rubbish. Skyrim on pc isn't much of an improvement over the console versions. All there games suffer from a lot of issues

Nimblest-Assassin1805d ago (Edited 1805d ago )

IMHO... I think PS3 gamers shoud boycott Bethesda for all the crap they had to put up with

The game at launch was a joke, and essentially PS3 owners did not get the same product that was advertised for 360 gamers. Essentially 360 gamers got Skyrim, and PS3 owners got a steaming pile of sh*t for the same price

People were mad about the endings of Me3 (which I understand) ... but in all honesty, a studio doesn't deserve your money.. if they can't do the most important thing right GETTING THE GAME TO WORK PROPERLY!

Had the PS3 version, sold it, and got the PC version on sale... and honestly... I should have pirated it... since I shouldn't give this studio more money.

They should have held of the PS3 version to improve quality, or not realease it and scam PS3 owners out of their money... because the PS3 version is inferior to the PC and 360 versions

This article right here made me hate bethesda:

kwyjibo1805d ago

Skyrim on PC is a massive improvement. You get mods.

StayStatic1805d ago

You got to be shitting me

Silly gameAr1805d ago


Sadly, the media buzz and marketing dollars behind a Bethesda game will make sure naive PS3 owners run out to buy the next big Bethesda game because their buds are as naive as they are.

With tactics like that, why even try to make the game as good as it can be on PS3. Look at COD PS3 sales for an example of that.

Freakazoid20121805d ago

"because the PS3 version is inferior to the PC and 360 versions " Well isnt that the case with most multi platform games? This next part isnt directed at you but your post gave me a chance to point out how silly some people have sounded lately.

Quoting Sony fans from Wii U articles. If it was more powerful it would run the multi plats without any issue at all and should in fact run them better...

Now before all the fanboys get pissed and message me, I know what I said about it should be superior if the PS3 was indeed stronger than 360 part is complete BS but it was you guys making the same claims in Wii U articles and I just wanted to give it back to you, so you could see how stupid you sound.

ALLWRONG1805d ago

Good Idea, boycott Bethesda and force them to go even more Xbox exclusive.

PS-Analog1804d ago

I think inferior multiplats on the PS3 has nothing to do with power but the fact that the PS3's architecture is foreign to the PC's architecture. Porting from the PC's that they develope the game on is a smoother process on the 360 and Wii U because the architecture is more similar to PC. PS3 ports need more time and money that some developers don't want to put in hence why theres some ports that are identical and why some are bad.

Wii U should have little trouble with games being ported so what ports you see on the Wii U should be somewhere near the best that they can get out of the Wii U.

That said, Sony and Nintendo fans that are arguing about the graphics on the Wii U should remember that graphics isn't what makes Nintendo consoles good.

You're kidding, right?
Skyrim on PC allows you mods. That opens up an infinite amount of possibilities.

GrahamGolden1804d ago

y glad there is mods nexus for that crap or i wouldnt have bother to play it more than 20 hours

Razmossis1804d ago

Skyrim broke my hard drive. It froze while auto saving, I had to do a hard reset because the console wouldn't turn off.
When I turned it back on I heard a couple of strange 'clicks', then the PS3 opening screen went into slow-mo and couldn't fully load up.

Had to get a new hard drive, lost everything.
It's that before Skyrim, the most broken game I'd ever played was Fallout 3

rpd1231804d ago

I agree. I have it on 360 and it's great but not without it's issues. The problems on PS3 are completely unacceptable. And even though PC players are saying that you can get mods, that means that Bethesda knowingly released an unfinished product because they know PC gamers will improve it for them.

sold my copy months ago. last game i buy from them

Jaybronee1805d ago

Sold my copy, too. I had a lot of missions that I couldn't even finish because it was so buggy.

MysticStrummer1805d ago

@Jaybronee - Yeah it's funny, but before the last PS3 patch I had quests that wouldn't leave my log even though I had done them, and after the patch I promptly ran into a quest I can't finish. The game actually got worse after the patch. Bravo Bethesda.

under taker 341805d ago

Geez, there's people who don't like Capcom, square enix, Bioware, Valve, EA, Ubisoft, Id software, Infinity ward, and now Bethesda.

If none of these companyies existed we wouldn't be able to have someithing to play in the meanwhile.

A little sympathy!

PersonMan1805d ago

Everyone loves Naughty Dog, Guerrilla Games, Sucker Punch, Rockstar, Criterion Games, ThatGameCompany and DICE though.

MySwordIsHeavenly1805d ago

People don't like Valve?

No. Everybody loves Valve.

Lord_Sloth1805d ago

I will give no sympathy for crappy products created by lazy devs who've been remaking the same title for more than a decade. They should know it well enough by now!

iamnsuperman1804d ago (Edited 1804d ago )

Why sympathise with shoddy development that shows they willingly released a buggy product and spent less (if any) time testing the game. At the minute Bethesda is at the very low end of my respect. Releasing a very buggy, if not broken game, is not on at all

edit: @MySwordIsHeavenly. I do not hate Valve either. I do hate the following of Valve. People treat Valve as if they are gods.

well,if you where a developer and introduced to something total different to develop for,it would be hard okay?I mean,ps3 has had 100 and 100's of shitty versions of video games.Xbox is just like the pc to develop for almost.Very easy,i think next gen,sony will make it easier.Besides,in your eyes around 30 percent of developers are "shitty devs".

Without Bethesda true open world 3D RPG's don't exist.

If you don't like their games don't buy em, its that simple. I platinum'd Skyrim on PS3 in 280 hours, with a shit eating grin on my face 80% of the time. If i had spent my $60 on Uncharted 3 instead, I would have to have replayed it 18.66 times to get the value that I got from Skyrim.
Since Skyrim played virtually bug free for me I am led to assume that most gamers are just a bunch of fat doughy whiny ass haters that aren't satisfied with anything.

LinLeigh1804d ago

Or you were the lucky one. How would you feel if the game that gave you a shit eating grin was almost unplayable?
You shouldn't assume so much.

harder plz....troll HARDER

Anon19741804d ago

I agree. If you don't like them, don't buy them. For me, I'll be first in line when the next Bethesda game comes out as Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Skyrim. In the 30+ years I've been gaming, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that these three games are among the best I've ever played. And I have no qualms about buying them on my PS3 either as my experience has been nearly flawless. There was issues with the PS3 at version of Skyrim at launch (even though they didn't effect myself personally) that affected a minority of players and two weeks from launch it was patched. Since then they've continued to find improvements to support their product.

And as for Dawnguard, I waited a year for the Shivering Isles for Oblivion, I'm not overly concerned I haven't played Dawnguard yet.

To me, it's just people bitching for the sake of bitching. Whenever anything becomes popular, it almost instantly becomes cool to hate it. We saw it happen with Mass Effect, with GTA, with COD, with Skyrim..on and on it goes. Thankfully, the internet whining hasn't influenced my opinion regrading these fantastic games in the slightest, and never will. I always trust the opinion of professional game reviewers over kids on the internet. If I had paid any attention to the internet chatter I would have missed some of the best games this gen has to offer.

Disagree with that all you want. It won't stop me from continuing to play Skyrim to death, it won't stop me from buying Dawnguard on the PS3, it won't stop me from continuing to support Bethesda for providing truly excellent, unique open world RPG's.

"Without Bethesda true open world 3D RPG's don't exist."

They also invented the lightbulb, gotta give credit where credit is due :b

tommygunzII1804d ago (Edited 1804d ago )

I never said they invented open world 3D rpg, but give me one example of a open world 3d rpg that isn't made by bethesda. Don't say rockstar because you can't mod weapons or talk to npc's in their games. Just one example. If it has a zone every 500ft then its not open world either.

Withdreday1804d ago

"but give me one example of a open world 3d rpg that isn't made by bethesda."

Dragon's Dogma, Dragon Age: Origins I & 2, Demon's Souls, The Witcher series, Two Worlds I & II, etc, etc...

GenericNameHere1804d ago

280 hours for the platinum?? It only took me around 80+ hours, and I wasn't even trying to get the platinum.

aquamala1804d ago

what other games are like Fallout and Skyrim? all other games are so simple by comparison, and have much smaller game worlds.
