Bethesda 'Close' to Bringing Skyrim DLC to PS3

Skyrim's relationship with the PS3 has been tumultuous. Soon after the popular open world RPG's launch on the console, complaints of a "save glitch" arose, where Skyrim save files ballooned in size as more and more hours were logged onto a game, causing lag to the point that the game became unplayable. The only temporary fix for PS3-Skyrim players was to restart their console every time the lag became too bad.

The permanent solution didn't come until Patch 1.5, which dropped half a year after Skyrim's release.

A few months later, Bethesda released Skyrim's first DLC, Dawnguard, which first hit Xbox 360 and PC two months after. Bethesda revealed that the DLC wouldn't be landing on PS3 in the near future, possibly ever, because of the issues that the developer had with the platform.

When Hearthfire, Skyrim's homebuilding DLC, released in September, PS3 players found that they were to be spurned again.

Now, with Dragonborn, Skyrim's third DLC, landing in a month, Bethesda's announced hopeful news for Skyrim on PS3. "We’re also close on new Skyrim content for PS3 and PC," stated Bethesda on its official Twitter feed.

Unfortunately, that's all the developer was willing to reveal. It's said nothing of what DLC will be made available on PS3 and when. Here's to hoping that the developer will be able to make at least Dragonborn, if not Dawnguard and Hearthfire, available to the PS3.

  • I generally think of buying games like Skyrim, and a lot of the other games which have toolkits for you to build content for the game which result in some amazing mods on anything other than PC is a disservice to the game if you don't have the ability to take advantage of all the wonderful content people create for these games.

    For me the only acceptable answer I really take for not buying PC for a game like this is if your computer won't run it but you have a console that will.
