  1. I wonder why we(European people) pay more than people from the USA…..
    let’s see:

    20.00 USD = 15(.050109) EUR (Dawnguard)
    5.00 USD = 3(.762552) EUR (Hearthfire)
    Total = 25.00 USD = 18(.812762) EUR
    May not be a big difference for some,but for me it is!

    What a shame Bethesda,you guys do look like politicians and i don’t need to tell how politicians are!

    Peace ;)

    • By the way i paid 20 EUR for Dawnguard,and Hearthfire costs 5 EUR.

      5.00 EUR = 6(.644214) USD
      20.00 EUR = 26(.575691) USD
      Total = 25.00 EUR = 33(.219614) USD

    • well im not sure how the taxes work in Europe but some states in the US tax electronic downloads such as Washington where I live so the cheaper price in the US might be to offset the taxes

  2. Hey Bethesda and Gstaff…what’s going on with Dragonborn for pc cause we are not believing in so called technical issues…I mean if I would I could already play it for free there are guys who managed to transfer xbox esm. and bsa. files into pc and it’s working…and I chose to support my favourite company and it lies to me…either you are incompetent or you are stalling with some reason…either way more and more people are turning to piracy because of this ridiculous silence and to mention that ESO I wont buy because of this….so xbox CAN get date but we cant….that’s bloody monopoly….I ‘d hate to see you ruined and I just hope that you know what’you doing…good luck with your xbox fanboys cheers

  3. My point is Beth that I’m trying to help you see the bigger picture and that is that noone in his right mind would buy that funny excuse that it takes long time and annoying soon horizont soon stay tuned cause it will be soon it’s just around corner how so that with xbox you never had such problems…it’s becoming dull and people are starting to look on you like on Bioware and I guess you’ re better than that…it has been 43 DAYS for pc only…..don’t you tell me that it’s not ready cause you’re just insulting our intelligence…..RELEASE IT FOR GOD SAKE it’s not about bloody dlc anymore it’s about rasicm towards pc and ps3 players (ok I ‘ve been a little harsh but it’s because this waiting is driving us crazy)

  4. Pretty much have until mid/end of February to release Dragonborn to keep my interest. After that I start moving on to new games again and will prefer Aliens Colonial Marines, Bioshock Infinite, God of War Ascension, Dead Space 3 or anything else to Bethesda lame-ass stalling.

  5. I remember when Bethesda announced dlc for “early 2013″. It was after I made a birthday wish that for one day Beth’s PR could not tell a lie. Imagine how the rest of that guy’s day went..

    • If you look back at Bethesda’s past you’ll find a lot of lies when it comes to DLC releases

      Skyrim – last August GStaff promised here that work on Dawnguard for PS3 would continue as a high priority and we would receive regular udates. It’s still MIA, there have been no updates and in November it was made official that work on Dawnguard and Hearthfire had ceased in favour of Dragonborn.

      Skyrim – only first two DLCs exclusive and only for 30 days, all three have been exclusive and none have arrived on PS3 at all.

      Fallout New Vegas: Dead Money – announced as a 30 exclusivity, released on other platforms some 60 days later. Delay was neither announced nor explained.

      Fallout 3 – after months of silence Bethesda officially announced the DLC for PS3 in May of 2009 for a Summer release, it released in October. Delay was neither announced nor explained.

      Oblivion – Shivering Isles announced as a standalone expansion available via PSN without mentioning territory restrictions. The download was only available on the US PSN store and never released in Europe where players would have to buy the GOTY Edition, making matters worse the saved game data was incompatible across the versions and never patched.

      Lying to PS3 owners is just the way Bethesda operates it seems. Given the timeline it’s surprising that anyone believes a word that is posted here to be honest.

      • Oblivion was the last Bethesda game I purchased. Prior to that, I bought Morrowind (plus expansions), Battlespire, Daggerfall, and Arena.

        I have played Bethesda games since, but those were friends’ copies (mostly to determine if it was worthwhile to buy or not). I was concerned with the parent company’s increased developer company purchases and made mention of it at the time on here but it seems that my concerns were valid after all as things have changed, and not for the better.

        I feel for the developers that work hard on these games as well as the frustrated gamers given the mushroom treatment (to put it nicely). However, the changes (at the very least) between the company and the consumer since Morrowind’s success has become nigh on toxic. Sadly, I don’t see it getting any better which is truly unfortunate considering I was once a great fan and admirer of the Elder Scrolls series (and, by extension, Bethesda as a whole).

        Now, I’m as disillusioned as everyone else and if various forums are any indication, the number of people like me is growing almost as quickly as the Elder Scrolls popularity did.

        • Something went wrong inside the line of ideas since Oblivion. The public is one of the problems, play to see an history suffered a huge reduction, the decadent shooter formula from the 90s, falling apart, keeps making money in on a horde of repetitions of “addictive repetition.” Someone inside BGS, has the focus on fun without consequences, in the sense of an epic story to talking about, but monotonous when seen in practice. Worst? they remove the adventure sense created by history elements, reasons for that different location, a more deep narrative, just to repeat events as an MMO. You not alone indeed.

  6. @gstaff You know the song in the Dragonborn trailer. It seems like a mix of the original song form Jeremy Soule – Dragonborn.
    Is there a way you can release the full song?

  7. @Gstaff Hit the breaks, you mean to tell me I buy this game as soon as it comes out so I don’t get the free dlc>:| ???? That is the last product I buy from you people. I’m punished because I bought it before now? How is that fair? I thought skyrim was bad enough but this pretty much does it for me.

  8. Why can’t everyone have it free @gstaff? Why do people that bought it first day have to pay for it? Does that seem fair to people that didn’t know it would be free if they waited?

  9. LMAO They can’t sell this DLC even with a price tag of $5.00, so why not give it away! Only if you buy it new of course. Bethesda spoiled nearly the entirety of this game on the blog page, just like how half of RAGE was spoiled through videos on thia blog. Seriously I rented RAGE last year, beat it in the 48 hours of rental time I had it for. As I was playing, I said to myself quite frequently how I’ve already seen this level on Bethblog and already knew what to expect. After watching the “Let’s play” videos on Youtube, I realized that this Blog page spoiled most of Dishonored’s gameplay. I guess if it’s not TES or Fallout, Bethesda will just spoil about 50% of the game through this blog page.
