Bethesda Suggests Skyrim DLC Might Never Make it to PlayStation 3

Well, that's a bummer...

Ever since launching last fall, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been a bug-riddled experience for PlayStation 3 users. Not just the "fun bugs" that tend to make Bethesda's properties extra hilarious, but the game-breaking bugs that cause screen stuttering and unplayable quests.

Now, it seems that the plight of the PlayStation 3 crowd grows stronger as Bethesda has come out and said that they might not be able to bring their DLC efforts to the console.

Dawnguard still hasn't been released on the PlayStation 3. Hearthfire should be coming in a month, but it looks like that one might be out as well. What's the word from the company? Here they are in a post on their official forums.

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.

Bethesda has not given up on the PlayStation 3 crowd and their access to the Skyrim DLC; it's too bad that making that happen seems incredibly difficult.

What say you, PlayStation 3 owners?
