Everyone has become aware that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PS3 was not very successful. I mean, it was fun an all for people who have a PS3, but it did not run as well as its Xbox 360 and PC counterparts. After a while, save files would get too big and things would slow down significantly. I don’t know about you, but I hate playing games that lag, which may be why I generally don’t bite on online games. But anyways, let’s get back to Dawnguard on the PS3.
While the game itself is playable on PS3 these days, it appears Bethesda is still struggling with developing for Sony’s system. Because of this, Bethesda has confirmed that they can’t be sure if either Dawnguard or Hearthfire will make it to the PS3. This was confirmed in a forum post which read something like this.
“Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you’re talking about sizeable content like Dawnguard,”
“We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone.”
“The PS3 is a powerful system, and we’re working hard to deliver the content you guys want. Dawnguard is obviously not the only DLC we’re working on, either, so the issues of adding content get even more complicated.
“This is not a problem we’re positive we can solve, but we are working together with Sony to bring you this content.”
Looking back at the issues Bethesda has had with the PS3, I am glad that I didn’t pick up Skyrim. And with that, I am almost skeptical about picking up Dishonored on the PS3. I guess I just have to hope that Bethesda doesn’t mess this one up. They need to redeem themselves with this one.
