Bethedsa 'close' with Skyrim PS3 dlc

Bethedsa has revealed that PS3 and PC owners of Skyrim may not have much longer to wait for new DLC.

The studio has tweeted out, saying "To update: we're also close on new Skyrim content for PS3 and PC."

Skyrim's first DLC add-on, Dawnguard, is yet to launch on PS3, despite it releasing on Xbox 360 four months ago. Meanwhile Xbox 360 owners have also been treated to the Hearthfire DLC, while another new expansion, known as Dragonborn will also release for Microsoft's console on December 4. 

It's unclear what the issue has been with this DLC, although it does seem to boil down to Bethedsa being uncomfortable with PS3 development.

"Thanks to all our fans. We think you'll love the new stuff. We know it takes us time and thanks for all your support and patience," said a follow up tweet on the matter. But is this all too little too late? Or are you happy to finally be getting the DLC at last?

Has it really been 4 months since Dawngaurd was released on Xbox. That's mad that's it's taken that long for them to fix whatever the problem was. They'll certainly miss out on some DLC sales, but I doubt it will be much as most people I know who have the game love it and probably still have or are still playing the game. Still sucks for them to have to wait this long though.

It might be nice if they gave you one of them for free just to say sorry. Not likely but it would be a nice gesture.

I really doubt they have overcome said problems. Maybe it's my english but the word "new" could very well mean anything. Maybe they managed to assemble some DLC for PS3, but it's hardly Dawnguard or Hearthfire - they're simply not new by any means.

P.S. It's "Bethesda", not "Bethedsa".

Considering the initial game is still broken after all this time I refuse to pay anything for DLC. Should be free. But then it's unfair on the 360 people who paid for it.

True, but the Xbox and PC people didn't pay for a game that was broken and known to be broken before release.

Those 360 ppl, who was lucky enough to get into Dawnguard Beta, got the final version for free

Too late for me, already sold my PS3 copy on. I saw Bethesda were celebrating the 1 year birthday of the game yesterday - how much of a joke is it that on it's one year birthday a version of the game doesn't work properly. I still have it on PC anyway but on principle I won't buy any DLC for it, ever.

IIRC last year they did a special re-release of Oblivion because it was 5 years old. It was kinda hilarious really. I love that some are doing genuine efforts to make their anniversaries special (Nintendo doing Special All-Star versions of Mario and Kirby for 25th. Huge Zelda concerts. Square doing special versions of Dragon Quest for 25th. Hell look at the stuff like Doom's BFG edition.) and then others like this is a simple re-release with '5 years old!' stuck on.

Bethesda don't seem to be able to programme software very well for the PS3 - wasn't Fallout 3 bugged beyond playable when they released the DLC for it? Leaving Skyrim in the wilderness for so long after its release (without the DLC) is pretty poor but seems what they always do to the platform.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
