Skyrim: Dawnguard DLC out now on PC, PS3 version not yet ready

Dawnguard, the first expansion pack for Skyrim, is now available on PC. You can buy it on Steam for $19.99. For more on the expansion, you may want to read Steve's field report. He concludes that "Dawnguard satisfies despite its shortcomings."

But what about the PS3 version? An update from Bethesda reveals that the team is not happy with how development on the PS3 version is progressing.

We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard's performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren't going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people's experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We're as disappointed as our fans when that isn't the case, but we'll continue to push for that reality.

The company was repeatedly criticized for the poor performance of its Fallout DLC on PS3. It looks as though Bethesda is opting to delay the release, instead of releasing buggy content. Commendable, perhaps, but PS3 players are sure to be peeved either way.
