Dawnguard PS3 development woes have Sony giving Bethesda a helping hand

Dawnguard PS3 development woes have Sony giving Bethesda a helping hand

It isn't exactly a secret by now that Bethesda is having some major issues with the PS3 version of Skyrim: Dawnguard. PS3 players are being left out in the cold thanks to a number of technical problems Bethesda is facing with the console, and the studio said a few weeks back that it may not be able to release the DLC if it can't figure out a fix for these issues. At the time, Bethesda said that it had been working closely with Sony to solve the issue, a statement that SCEA VP of publisher relations Adam Boyes echoed when recently speaking to Kotaku.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 4, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 4, 2012

We're getting ready to end a Tuesday that has produced some rather big news, so let's jump right into it, shall we? By far the biggest story of the day had to do with upcoming the Apple event. Apple started sending out invitations for the event today, using a picture that gives away what to expect at the event (spoiler alert: the iPhone 5 is coming). With an iPhone 5 reveal essentially confirmed, analysts are predicting success for the new handset, saying that it could potentially sell 10 million units this quarter. Not bad, provided the device actually hits those marks.

Hearthfire DLC for Skyrim available on Xbox 360 now

Hearthfire DLC for Skyrim available on Xbox 360 now

Skyrim's latest DLC, Hearthfire, launches on Xbox 360 today, and it seems to pack a lot into a tiny download. The DLC, which lets you collect raw materials to build your dream home and adopt children (among other things), weighs in at only 75MB, meaning that it should be a pretty quick download for most folks. The pack is budget-priced too as it costs a mere 400 MSP, leading us to believe that this is a tiny DLC bonus meant to tide us over while we wait for the next expansion-like Skyrim DLC pack.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 31, 2012

We've officially entered the final hours of August, and in typical SlashGear fashion, we're sending thing off with a bang. Today's IFA adventures didn't produce as much news as the two days before it, but we still have plenty of hands-on posts for you to check out, just like yesterday. We got to check out a couple of Dell's upcoming products today, spending some hands-on time with the Dell XPS Duo 12 and the more traditional Dell XPS 10. Dell wasn't the only one showing off new computers and a tablets today though, as we also have a hands-on with HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4, SpectreXT and ENVY x2, along with a hands-on post for the new Toshiba Satellite U920t.

Dawnguard PS3 may not see release as problems persist

Dawnguard PS3 may not see release as problems persist

PS3 owners have been waiting, some more patiently than others, for their version of Dawnguard to arrive. Skyrim's first DLC has been available on PC for a while now and Xbox 360 for even longer, but Bethesda delayed the PS3 version earlier this month because it wasn't satisfied with the expansion's performance. Unfortunately, it looks like those problems with Dawnguard on PS3 aren't going away, and in a new statement, Bethesda seems to hint that the PS3 might miss out on a release entirely as a result.

Dawnguard PS3 wasn’t delayed because of Hearthfire, Bethesda assures

Dawnguard PS3 wasn’t delayed because of Hearthfire, Bethesda assures

Yesterday, Bethesda announced Hearthfire, the latest DLC for Skyrim. It looks to be a charming little DLC pack, but there's just one problem: Xbox 360 owners will be getting Hearthfire next week, but PS3 owners are still without Dawnguard, Skyrim's first DLC. This understandably has some PS3 players wondering if Bethesda delayed Dawnguard on PS3 so it could finish up work on Hearthfire and get it out the door quickly.

Skyrim: Hearthfire DLC lets you build your dream home

Skyrim: Hearthfire DLC lets you build your dream home

Bethesda has announced new DLC for the incredibly popular Skyrim, but this DLC probably isn't what you were thinking it would be. Dubbed Hearthfire, this latest DLC pack focuses less on the adventuring aspects of the game and encourages players to not only build their own home, but start a family and settle down. We saw features like this in the Skyrim Game Jam video Todd Howard showed during his keynote at DICE 2012, but few were thinking that home building and adoption would end up being the focus of actual DLC.

With the release of Doom 3 BFG Edition coming up in just a couple of months, Bethesda and id Software have taken some time at this year's QuakeCon (which kicked off yesterday) to hype the game. In a new trailer released today, we get a glimpse at some of Doom 3 BFG's new levels. There are eight new levels in all, and collectively they're called "The Lost Mission," serving as something of a second expansion for Doom 3.

Dawnguard now available on PC, PS3 players still waiting

Well, that was quick. Earlier this week Bethesda's Pete Hines promised that more information about the missing PC and PS3 releases of Dawnguard, Skyrim's first DLC, would be coming soon. When he said that, we didn't think he meant it would be releasing soon, but apparently he did. Yes, Dawnguard is available on PC right this very instant, but be ready to pony up that cash, because it comes with a price tag of $19.99.

Dawnguard PC and PS3 information coming soon promises Bethesda

Dawnguard PC and PS3 information coming soon promises Bethesda

Last week, Bethesda VP of marketing Pete Hines sparked outrage among Skyrim fans when he pointed out that the studio hasn't announced the game's first DLC, Dawnguard, for any platforms other than Xbox 360. Now, Hines is promising that more information on the PC and PS3 versions of Dawnguard is coming soon, telling one perturbed Twitter follower over the weekend to "Just sit tight. We'll have info soon." Just how soon? A few hours ago, Hines tweeted that Bethesda should have that info later this week.
