Finally I can continue my Oblivion adventures! Bethesda has announced that the retail version of the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion expansion for the PlayStation 3 will be hitting stores November 21st. Similar to the Xbox 360 retail disc that showed up last week, the disc will contain the expansion by itself, unlike the Game of the Year Edition which includes the original game plus expansion for $US 59.99. No retail price was included in the press release, but I assume it will be comparable to the 360 version which runs $US 29.99. Words cannot express how excited I am to finally get a chance to play the expansion without having to play through the whole game all over again on another system. On behalf of all PS3 Oblivion early purchasers, it's about damn time Bethesda, and thank you. <3
