Hines: Bethesda "need to answer to things that have nothing to do with us"

Bethesda's PR and marketing VP Pete Hines says they've learnt that after announcing The Elder Scrolls Online MMO that they are 'held accountable' to other people's decisions and remarks.

The MMO market has changed since unveiling the project, and the "ability to trust or believe" what the studio has to say is hampered by things Bethesda "had nothing to do with".

How about learning to not alienate a group of users by ignoring them and mocking them Pete. How about not lying about your games performance on ps3. How about admitting you sold ps3 users a broken game at launch and STILL can't live up to promises of add on content. THIS YOU HAVE EVERYTHING TO DO WITH.

I rented Skyrim for ps3 and played it for 80 hours. The game is good, but there where so many technical issues that it wasn't even funny. Fortunately, I had a 360 so I brought Skyrim for that console. I pretty much knew early on that Bethesda would screw over ps3 gamers like usual. This practice of their is really unacceptable and I feel sorry for anyone who brought Skyrim for ps3 and your outrage is completely justified.

TESO should go with the GW2 model, IMO. I'm not sure why I would ever want to play it. I like the THE SP games just fine but I just can't seem to get interested in this.

I agree. I like the idea of having all the provinces open in a massive world though, I think they should do that for the next proper elder scrolls game

If Bethesda Cant make a single player elderscrolls game without bugs and 7+ patches,
How the hell can they make an mmo!? This is going to be "beta" forever.....

In a sense he's right because Bethesda are not developing TESO. In another sense they deserve any hate they get because they make broken games using old engines and yet somehow manage to get the media to give them awards just for trying.
