The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's first batch of downloadable content--Dawnguard--arrived for the Xbox 360 in June and hit the PC in early August. It has yet to release for the PlayStation 3, with Bethesda claiming the content may never come to Sony's platform. Now, Sony has said it is working closely with Bethesda to remedy the issues.

Sony vice president of publisher relations Adam Boyes acknowledged gamers' concerns in an interview with Kotaku, but offered no timetable for when the content may finally hit the PS3.

"We work with all of our partners to try and solve their problems," Boyes said. "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," he added. "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."

Skyrim's second DLC offering, the home-building-themed Hearthfire content, came to the Xbox 360 last week. It has not yet been announced for the PC or PS3.
