    The game's 'Hearthfire' and 'Dawnguard' DLC packs are yet to be released on the platform due to performance issues, and Bethesda marketing executive Pete Hines says these are down to the studio to correct.

    "We've never blamed anyone or anything. It's our problem, and it's on us to solve it," he wrote on Twitter. "We have never blamed Sony/PS3."

    "I don't have any info on 'Hearthfire', 'Dawnguard', or DLC in general for PS3. We're still on it. Will share update when I have one," he added.

    no shit bethesda.


    It's your fault for releasing the game on a system that can't run the engine properly (thanks to the split memory and architecture).

    Shut up you fanboy, backwards flying dragons are a feature.

    But yeah there's been some laughably bad stuff going on with the PS3 version of Skyrim. The DLC seemed rather shit though.

    Maybe they shouldn't be trying to rush the DLC out the door like they did with Dawnguard, which had so many freaking bugs on the 360 and PC it was horrible.

    That's the case with every Bethesda game for the past couple of years. They put a lot of content in it and such but they can't fix bugs for shit.

    Well duh, of course it's Bethesda's fault - they programmed the game in the first place and they have to wrap their heads around the SDK.

    Gamebryo? Sorry, just curious. I'm assuming it's the game engine?

    It's funny that with that little comment you have injected your little agenda into the discussion and turned around a story that should have been focusing on Bethesda's failings into a thinly veiled attack on the PS3.

    Really this story would have been perfectly fine if it wasn't for that one little line. If you are going to continue to post news in this section try and have an ounce of integrity in the way you do so. I am tired of seeing fanboyish arguments constantly in this section and I rate you as one of the number one instigators causing the recent proliferation of fanboy arguments on this site.

    Fanboyism is poisoning this community and I consider it the biggest problem we currently have here. I will not allow this community to be poisoned and ruined by it. Go peddle your childishly transparent propaganda some place else soulx. Its not welcome here.
