This poll is now closed.
Skyrim's Dawnguard and Hearthfire DLC have been out for quite awhile for the Xbox 360 and PC. PS3 in the other hand have been shafted with numerous delays. Bethesda claims there are major problems with the DLC on the PS3 and working closely with Sony to resolve it. It has been months and all we hear from Bethesda is the good old generic response, "When we have an update, we will certainly let you know."

Skyrim's upcoming DLC Dragonborn is releasing tomorrow on the 360 and Bethesda is reassuring it's coming out for the PS3 (and PC) early next year. Now the 360 has an one month exclusivity for the DLC BUT for only the first two (Dawnguard and Hearthfire).

"When The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim arrives in stores this November (likely by way of carrier dragon), it'll assuredly feature many, many hours of content. Nevertheless, gamers will want more, and Bethesda has promised post-launch content to be of the "substantial" variety. The first two pieces of that content will arrive exclusively on Xbox Live Marketplace at least "30 days before it's available anywhere else."

Technically the new Dragonborn DLC was supposed to come out tomorrow for the PS3 and PC. Again the PS3 gets shafted and I'm not really sure if Bethesda is going to release Dragonborn (on time) for the PS3 due to their impressive track record. Also this "early next year" doesn't sound promising. Remember the DLC comes out 30 days after the 360 so that's January 4, 2013 but with this "early next year" I wouldn't be surprised if it actually comes out on February, March or never.

No. That'd probably go against their financial arrangement anyway.

If they expect PS3 owners to support them, they better do something drastic, because f*** Bethesda.

I'd say no unless the delays were their fault.... Which I highly doubt they would ever admit to it if it was.

It'd be a nice goodwill gesture but I doubt it will happen, if it gets onto the console at all.

Another option is they could charge full price for Dawnguard and if people buy that, give them Hearthfire for free.

Tons of people still play it, I got a PC 2 days ago and of course I bought Skyrim, added about 25 mods and now its like Nov 11 2011 all over again, its so badass.

As far as the poll, personally I don't care about a discount I would still get the DLC if it dropped anyway but if they want to save face they should bundle Heartfire and Dawnguard into a $20 bundle (basically giving Hearthfire for free which they should as there is a mod on PC that does more or less the exact same thing with 1 plot of land for free.) and sell us the Dragonborn DLC at full price.

Release all three DLC packs on the PS3 in one pack for $20 as a apology to fans. But this is Bethesda, father of the current DLC market and creators of horse armor...

In all seriousness, considering most people who bought it probably resold/traded in their copies already, I doubt it'll sell very well no matter what the price is.
