Skyrim: Dawnguard DLC Now Available on Steam, Still MIA for PS3

Surprising news from the QuakeCon keynote: Pete Hines of Bethesda announced just moments ago that the Dawnguard DLC for Skyrim – previously exclusive to Xbox 360 – is available on Steam. Like right now. It’s a nice surprise, considering that before today there was no word at all about when/if the $20 add-on would come to PC.

Unfortunately for PS3 owners, there’s still no word regarding Dawnguard; Bethesda’s just not satisfied with how it’s running yet. Here’s an excerpt from their blog, via Kotaku:

“We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. 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.”

While we do weep for PS3 owners, at this point it may be safe to assume they’re quite hardened when it comes to Skyrim-related disappointments.

In the end, PS3 owners might be better off. After playing Fallout 3 and NV on PS3, I learned my lesson. Bethesda’s engines just don’t work on PS3.

$20 is a little expensive. Does it really add that much? I would expect something close to Shivering Isles for that much.
