Dragonborn coming tomorrow to Xbox LIVE. Never Coming to PS3 and PC


In other botched DLC news, Bethesda has announced that the Dragonborn expansion pack will be released for the Xbox 360 tomorrow, with the PlayStation 3 and PC versions to be released sometime after Hell Freezes Over.

Quote:
We’re less than 24 hours away from unleashing Skyrim’s next add-on Dragonborn on Xbox LIVE. It’s one of our most ambitious add-ons ever and we’re excited for everyone to play it.

We’re also happy to announce Dragonborn will be available on PS3 and PC early next year.

The support from Skyrim fans over the last year has been amazing, and it’s driven us to support Skyrim more than any game we’ve ever released – including free content updates, modding tools like the Creation Kit and the Skyrim Workshop, and our add-ons, Dawnguard and Hearthfire.

And we’re still not done – we look forward to sharing more Skyrim news next year!
Right... coming in 2013... sometime after Dawnguard & Hearthfire. Might as well wait for the GotY edition. Or the next Elder Scrolls game.

I agree.. It's bs, if they want to do a better job selling a rather expensive add on, they should not play exclusive games. Also how do you put out a game on platform(ps3) without a good content delivery system when you then maybe intend to put out content on that platform... It's called sucky code lol. I will note I have it on PC.

What the fuck, Bethesda. Your core audience is PC. We love you. Why are you doing this to us?

Huh? You seem to be implying that Dawnguard and Hearthfire weren't released for PC. They were, I believe a month or so after the Xbox version. I wouldn't expect this release to be any different.

The core audience for PC the Elder Scrolls is in user made mods, not company DLC's.

You guys know that Dawnguard and Hearthfire are both out on PC, right?

You can go buy them right now.

You sound like you don't know this, and that's a little weird.

Because PC isn't paying them a huge bounty for exclusivity.

Yea I know those addons are out, but why should I spend 25 dollars on addons that had a delayed release due to a exclusivity deal. I might get them in a goy edition or a really good sale but am not paying 25(first two addons) or 45 dollars (plus Dragonborn) for them. I rather spend five dollars more and get Farcry 3.

Because Steam sales cost them money. TES4 is still like 59.99 in retail stores. But yeah this is bullshit.

Sure, that's fine. I'm not saying anyone should buy them. The newspost makes it sound like we shouldn't expect Dragonborn to come out on PC, and implies that the previous two DLC addons didn't. There's absolutely no reason to think it won't, and they did.

Coincidentally, this is also when I'll be purchasing it.

You know, they need something to cry about. They get lonely if they don't get a good nerd-rage going. I have no doubt this will be out for PC as soon as the exclusivity period has expired.

My point was that they never came out for the PlayStation 3 and that even the new expansion is being held back from the PC for a couple of months.

Does anyone still give a shit? Haven't we all uninstalled this game and moved on to something else by now?

Its because they haven't gotten that game to work properly on the PS3 yet. There is still a shit load to fix from my understanding. As plus MS has exclusive timed rights to the DLC.

This is the same as all previous DLC for Skyrim. X box gets the exclusive rights for 30 days.

Oh, and I'm still playing Skyrim on PC with about 30 mods. Can't beat this game in hi rez.

Me too, I traded my copy in the day before the first DLC dropped, and the guy at the store thought I was crazy, I said, not really because I got my fix and I will be waiting for the GOTY edition.
