  1. I’m on Xbox 360 now never played it on ps3 but I know I’ve found a few lil bugs while going to college of winter to start it I went there and it never completed the visit college of winter hold quest plus had a ancient dragon land right in the middle of solitude couldn’t even hit it like it was a hologram or something but it ate me 🙁 last but not least the markarth blacksmith glitch can’t invest with her,

  2. Lets put aside the half ass xbox is better comments. Its not, but if you wanna pay even more to play online & really believe that its a superior system then that’s ok too, just get over the fact your playing a dumbed down computer & that’s why its easier for bethsoft to program. Unfortunately bethsoft is a company out to make money & with millions of delusional xbox players out there we ps3 faithful get the shit end of the stick.

  3. If you know the problem/S then tell us what it is and if there’s a chance of it being complete or not if not start again or just tell when hearth fire is coming out its so stupid how long this has gone on for.

  4. I’ve heard Hearthfire was a Xbox only thing but I mean who honestly knows with Bethsoft anymore, my thinking is that they’ll get DLC’s put out for Microsoft before they will for PS3. But I’ve come to the conclusion, that Bethesda has until the end of this month (September) before I get rid of my Skyrim copy and just say forget Bethesda all together. I know it’s kinda childish but I’m looking at the long run, if they’re having this much trouble with this game who’s to say it’ll be any better with another one of their games. Some of you might be asking why the end of this month and I’ll tell you why, I saw on a website right after Dawnguard first came out it has on there the release date of Dawnguard for the PS3 being Sept. 30, 2012. Only thing disconcerting is the price they had was 59.99 MSRP. So to summarize everything Bethesda has until the end of this month (September) to release Dawnguard or they will be losing a very dissatisfied consumer, yeah they’ll not even notice but I’m sure if we (everyone who is waiting for Dawnguard) do it they’ll take notice.

  5. come on i beleave in you guys and here in holland we all still beleave we know you can do it
    and please release it fast
    some people are telling me it’s never going to be released for ps3.

  6. I have a question, can’t they break dawngaurd down into like three different updates instead of doing at all as one big thing? Like making three different parts for one dlc and then making a patch for skyrim to help make it run smoothly?

  7. Maybe it’s time to think out side of the box? It may not have been intended to work like that, but splitting it up like that allows you to try and handle different problems separately. It’s just an idea, I hope you guys get it straightened out

  8. you guys are working with sony right?
    the people who created the ps3 i think you guys can find that problem and solve it.
    i mean how hard can it be to solve that problem with the 2 best game studio’s
    ooh yeah maybe i have got a idea to solve it a lot more faster
    if you guys drop the heartfire(if forgot the name -_-) and all work together on dawnguard maybe you guys wil find the problem earlier (<—– srry english very bad XD)
    but dont give up i beleave in you guys
