Honestly, tired of waiting and no real explanation why a simple DLC is not released for a major platform as the PS3. I've been playing the Elder Scrolls since the very first one (yes, I'm that old) and I'm very disappointed with Bethesda. First Morrowind, now this.
I'm skipping their titles until a fix or a proper explanation is given.
That's ashame. Dishonoured looks incredible. Bethesda are only publishing this game though, it has been created by a completely different company. I've given up on Skyrim's DLC for PS3....I honestly no longer care about it. You'll probably be boycotting Besthesda for the rest of your life as the DLC coming out on PS3 is rather unlikely indeed.
Boycotting every Bethesda game(Including ones theyre just publishing) just cause they didn't release 1 dlc is possibly the dumbest thing ive ever heard. You honestly think Bethesda cares if a few people dont buy their games? They are already rolling in cash to give a flying f***
Well honestly your angry reaction is fully justified, but not just because they won't release the DLC but because of the larger picture. See, the DLC is still in the realms of the never-never because the PS3 version of Skyrim is so broken and so poorly ported that that Bethesda is having a hard time making it work at all. At least they're not pulling off the "we know it's not working but we'll release it and charge for it a-plenty" that they did with the full game. As to me I won't pay for any game DEVELOPED by Bethesda any time soon.
The problem here is that you are trying to do a very bad thing. You want to PUNISH GOOD STUDIO that has made an awesome game just because you have an issue with their publisher. It's not Bethesda you're hurting here, it's Arkane. Same thing with Fallout New Vegas. It is a great game and so much better than Fallout 3. Obsidian has showed Bethesda not only how to make a good RPG, but also made a great work of the engine, despite obvious bugs. All games made by Bethesda this generation run on the same engine and every time Bethesda says it has some weird problems making it run properly. At the same time a totally different studio made New Vegas and not only they've vastly improved on the gameplay (something Skyrim is still lacking sorely) but also made the game more stable and resource efficient.
Don't punish those awesome people that make great games but are being published by a crappy company like Bethesda. You want to vote with your wallet and it is a sentiment I can appreciate and actually me and many of my friends are doing same thing, but be sure to direct your disappointment and used consumer frustration towards the actual culprits. Screw Bethesda, don't screw Obsidian/Arkane/any other good studio.
Thanks for the clever comments and arguments, such as the ones from estro_pajo and P Bortowski. To silly people like (PSN) DJ-Cyphon, I won't really spend much time with a proper reply as people like him doesn't have enough IQ or education to understand it. I'll only mention a couple of things which are facts: 1) I honestly think they care what I say since I'm a game blogger in 11 countries, and they have already contacted me to explain the reasons for the delay; 2) The informal boycott is in fact working (obviously not trigged by my simple comment here, but widespread discontent with Bethesda in general). Just google it and you'll see that despite great reviews Dishonored sales for PS3 is well under expectations.
The phrase "takes one to know one" comes to mind right now... And since when did education count towards playing video games? Unless you're the type of person who thinks you are automatically correct about everything, no one elses opinion matters except your own just because you sit behind a keyboard and write a 'blog'.. Or do you just think you have a higher intellect then everyone else? quick question.. Who do you reckon is smarter? You or Albert Einstein? If you think yourself, I'd love to hear your notes on the theory of relativity ;D Also it's great that only the 2 people who agreed with you have 'smart & clever' comments.
Back on topic.. I've been playing Skyrim since day 1.. Put in well over 220 hours.. Only had 1 'bad' problem.. The water crash which was easily fixed anyway.. As for the DLC.. Most people above 12 don't care anymore.
Any how, I bid you farewell, Keyboard Warrior, Have fun complaining about senseless rubbish that most people have forgotten or don't care about anymore.
I'd love to hear your response to this, should give me another good chuckle. ;)
