First, they get a version of Bethesda’s hit action/RPG release that became increasingly unplayable. Then, PS3 owners had to endure news that they may not even get the Dawnguard DLC that Xbox 360 users got back at the end of June. The Dawnguard troubles make it all too easy to believe that Hearthfire’s home-building features may never make it to the PS3 either.
So, yeah, if you’re a PS3 who wants all that Skyrim magic on your console, you might feel cursed. Sony VP Adam Boyes feels your pain.
Boyes handles publisher relations for Sony, which means he interfaces with third-party developers. He’s new there, having arrived about three, four months ago. But he knew all about the Skyrim woes when I asked him about the game after he spoke at the New York Gaming Conference this week. He took a deep breath before replying.
“We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems,” Boyes answered. “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.”
