PlayStation 3 version facing performance issues.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim‘s first downloadable expansion, ‘Dawnguard’, is now available on PC after over a month of exclusivity on Xbox 360. It can be downloaded via Steam for $19.99.

Additionally, publisher Bethesda Softworks has provided an update on the PlayStation 3 version of ‘Dawnguard’.

“We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3,” said Bethesda in a statement. “We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse.

“We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.”

    I have it on PC but I don’t ever see myself buying dlc because Skyrim is huge and theres so much you can do.

    My god…they’re actually holding back a release to make it playable?!

    Bethesda…you’re…you’re figuring it out…

      No wonder after the shitstorm this mess called Skyrim caused.

    $20? Wow. Hmm.

    If Bethesda was happy enough to release PS3 Skyrim as it was, then PS3 Dawnguard must be totally unplayable. =P

    Okay, serious now – while I’m glad Bethesda’s finally realised that pushing out a sub-par version isn’t good enough for people who have ended up spending good money for the game for their PS3, this still sucks for the PS3 players. Hope they do manage to rectify things, because frankly, the quality control hasn’t been good enough.
