Dawnguard PS3 issues “not a problem we’re positive we can solve”
[UPDATE: Someone on Twitter asked Pete Hines, Bethesda PR VP, "is Dawnguard playable on PS3, as it is now?" to which he replied, "Yes, it just doesn't perform well in all scenarios. Some folks would be fine, some would not". He also adds "every save game is different" as an explanation.
We'll it looks like we might never get Dawnguard on PS3. Gstaff, an administrator on the Bethesda forums has posted a message about the previous Dawnguard PS3 quality issues stating that, "We have tried a number of things, but none of them solve the issue enough to make Dawnguard good for everyone."
Dawnguard PS3 problems
Here's the full statment. The short of it is 'it's broken and we don't think we can fix it'.
Earlier in the month, we provided an update on Dawnguard's status for PS3.
It's been a few weeks, and we wanted to make sure everyone knows where we're at with Dawnguard. Skyrim is a massive and dynamic game that requires a lot of resources, and things get much more complex when you're talking about sizable 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’ve been 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 try to bring you this content.
We wish we had a more definitive answer right now. We understand the frustration when the same content is not available on all platforms. When we have an update, we will certainly let you know. We deeply appreciate all the time and support you have given us, and we’ll keep doing our best to return that.
