Skyrim Dawnguard PS3 partially hurts Dishonored

Daniel Chubb:

If you go looking at the Dishonored reviews on all the websites that matter you’ll find it hard to hit a negative review, which is thanks to the game being outstanding in most areas although for those still bitter about Skyrim Dawnguard on PS3 it doesn’t matter how good the game is, they’re not buying it. Interestingly it’s not Bethesda that developed this game, but thanks to the role of publishing Dishonored it seems the lack of Skyrim Dawnguard and other DLC on the PS3 will affect sales in some way.

The worldwide sales charts will update within the next 24 hours and show just how well Dishonored has done in its first week for the UK, US, and other countries. Some gamers believe these figures will be poor and not as expected, and while we’re hearing from PR readers complaining about no Dawnguard and Hearthfire for PS3, we feel the sales will still impress.

Itll affect sales from a handful of gamers "im not buying Bethesda games" those sorts of gamers

I wouldn't say addicted, I'd say he has his preference, games are really not that important. If I had $65 and I haven't smoked and wanted to, guess what I'll get it the next day...(walks out of room rolling up) 😜

DragonKnight2074d ago

Games last longer than weed. If you have to buy $65 worth of weed then I'd still say that's more of a need than a preference.

Consoldtobots2074d ago

who cares what your opinion of what he does with HIS money is?

Blastoise2074d ago (Edited 2074d ago )

Get with the times, its cool to smoke weed and let everyone know!

*Walks out of room rolling up*

@consoldtobots: Obviously you do since you commented. Probably in the same situation yourself eh?

TalesFromTheBud2073d ago

lol dragonknight you dont even know what you're talking about... $60 is standard in socal for an 8th which is not much. it might sound like a lot to you but it's a pretty normal amount. I'm not sure how you decided that made it a need rather than a preference. Just because you think the game is a better choice doesn't mean it is.

I have no interest in Dishonored.

Silly gameAr2075d ago

Me either, but it seems like people are hyping this up to be one of the greatest games ever...kind of like Skyrim.

-Mika-2075d ago

I have this this game and it pretty overrated.The combat is awful and the art design is bad. I didn't get drawn into the story until the end and frankly the entire experience just felt average. I don't why reviewers are giving this a perfect score and alot of people are making it seem like it a perfect game.

Locksus2075d ago

I wouldn't call the combat awful. It's challenging if you alert more than one or two guards at a time. It requires precision to block and counter their attack and using your magic skills to you advantage.Still prefer sneaking and choking the enemy.

As for the art direction, it comes down to one's preference. I liked the art direction as I've always liked steampunk. It's fascinating to me. Also, Corvo's mask is damn badass.

Ultimately, it was the freedom that drew me into the game in the beginning. If you like stealth games, you'll like this one.

It was just too short. Can't wait for future DLC.

This game is much better then skyrim, its quality over quantity in comparison.
And Beth developers and Beth publishers are 2 different entitys altogether..

Its a long wait between games this thought out and deep, we barely ever get them this good now-a-days, last game i got into so easily and couldnt stop playing was Deus ex HR.


Not interest in a game in which he still commented on to let everyone know that no.., he is not interested

shenpo_shin2074d ago (Edited 2074d ago )

combine BRINK art style with assassins creed in first person view and u have dishonored.

Good game,very good game but whay too short,like 6 hours with everything done.

@mika" say the guy who embrace and thin that FFXIII- RE6 are the best games made this gen,plz kid just shush and go back to these piece of trashes

SAE2074d ago

How do you have no interest in what's probably the best single player campaign of the year?

Dovahkiin2074d ago

This. Anyone who thinks this game is bad, is bad at games.

ZeroX98762075d ago

I got a PS3 and it didn`t stop me from buying the title. why punish a great job from good devs just because their publishing partners didn`t deliver in one of their games.

it`s like saying that EA is always screwing their customers so you won`t buy any games published by EA.

the game is awesome and it runs extremely well by the way.

admiralvic2075d ago

I think you're overlooking some things. For starters, Beth has a bit of history with the PS3 being neglected. DLC has come later, constant bugs / glitches, Skyrim, which paints the image of the company not caring about the ps3 or being unable to develop for the ps3. Regardless of what the truth is, people read these actions as so and become important for that simple fact. The same happens with Capcom, people find on disc DLC or something weird and they refuse to buy the title regardless of who is developing it. Thats just how it goes... Also don't forget that publishers have final say.

Sy_Wolf2074d ago

Which would be relevant if Bethesda had anything to do with this game other then throwing money at the developers.

ShoryukenII2074d ago

Bethesda had a bit more to do with it than that. They could have thrown all that money at the 360 version if they really wanted to. They did it with Skyrim. Also, I'm pretty sure they could've cancelled the game as well. The publisher almost always has a lot to do with the games they publish.

shenpo_shin2074d ago

Oblivion was the best version on consoles
so dunno

TalesFromTheBud2073d ago

Devs don't like the PS3 because its a pain in the ass to deal with when the other 2 systems have a more similar OS. If you don't like being neglected get an xbox.

I am fairly sure a lot of people don't care. I'm still getting Dishonoured, because it takes more than one game to change my view of a company. I had issues with Skyrim, but it wasn't how it ran or the lack of DLC, I just didn't like the game.

ziggurcat2075d ago (Edited 2075d ago )

considering that the game and its content is supposed to be multiplatform, and it won't be because the devs are a bunch of incompetent twits? i think that's enough to not want to buy a game from that company, regardless of whether they're developing the game.

sadder still is that they had sony try to help them out, and even *they* couldn't get bethesda's garbage code to work...

6 years into any system's life, this kind of stuff shouldn't be happening.

(despite disagreeing, i have not clicked the disagree button)
