The latest chapter in the ongoing saga over the missing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim downloadable content for PlayStation 3 has unfolded. Bethesda vice president of public relations and marketing Pete Hines wrote over Twitter that what's keeping the content from PS3 is not any fault of Sony's, but rather of the developer itself.

"We've never blamed anyone or anything," Hines said. "It's our problem, and it's on us to solve it."

Hines added that neither the vampire-themed Dawnguard expansion nor the home-building Hearthfire content is stable enough to release on PS3.

"The performance isn't good enough in all cases," he added. "For most folks, it'd be fine. For some, it wouldn't be."

In August, a Bethesda representative said potentially unsolvable issues may keep the Dawnguard expansion from ever releasing for PS3. For more on Skyrim's first two expansion packs, check out GameSpot's Dawnguard review and previous coverage of Hearthfire.
