The waiting game

While Xbox 360 owners enjoy the second The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC pack, developer Bethesda has yet to release the first expansion on PlayStation 3. In fact, the company has revealed that it's struggling to get the content running on Sony’s platform at all – an unsurprising admission considering the game’s troubled launch.

But, in a conversation with Kotaku at the New York Gaming Conference this weekend, Sony’s Adam Boyes revealed that the platform holder is working closely with Bethesda in order to get the DLC up to scratch.

We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems. We have a big, broad dev support team that works closely with Bethesda – and with all of our partners – to work with them to solve that any sort of issues they have along the way.

Of course, I always want everything to work always for everyone. I can’t promise any kind of resolution or timeline but can say that everyone involved is trying their best to get this stuff working.

Skyrim’s first DLC pack, Dawnguard, launched on the Xbox 360 in June and PC in August. Hearthfire, the title’s latest expansion pack, released on Microsoft’s platform earlier this week. Personally, we’d be surprised if any of the content ever hit the PS3 – regardless of Sony’s input.
