As PlayStation 3 owners become more and more vexed at how Bethesda is treating them, Sony continues to work behind the scenes. They're playing the valuable role of assistant.
After a game-breaking bug on the PS3 version and late downloadable content, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim fans are starting to wonder if they'll ever see anymore extra stuff for last year's epic RPG. And if they do, will it even work…? Well, let's work on getting Dawnguard first and then maybe they can turn their attention to the upcoming Hearthfire.
According to what Sony vice president of Adam Boyes said at the New York Gaming Conference this past week (as cited by Kotaku ), he understands the frustration PS3 owners have been experiencing. The guy's new, but Boyes knows what to say:
"We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems. 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."
As I've said before, if it's this big of a mess, Bethesda was never really ready to work with the PS3. Plain and simple. But here's hoping Sony can help the developers get a firmer grasp on the architecture, thereby giving Skyrim fans who play on the PS3 a bit more in the way of fair treatment.
