Bethesda har store problemer med at få Dawnguard til at fungere på Playstation 3. Faktisk så store problemer, at de nu melder ud, at de måske ikke kan finde en løsning. Bethesda har haft notorisk svært ved at få Playstation 3-udgaven af Skyrim til at spille ordentligt, og nu ser det faktisk ud til, at de giver op med Dawnguard, hvilket også kunne resultere i, at den netop annoncerede Heartfire-DLC heller ikke udkommer på Playstation 3. Det korteste strå er i den grad trukket i Playstation 3-lejren med Skyrim. her er hvad Bethesda siger om sagen:
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.
