PS3 Version of Skyrim to Receive DLC as Sloppy Seconds

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and everything about the game has looked positive so far – well, at least until now.

To the surprise of everyone (sarcasm), Microsoft and Bethesda Softworks have announced a partnership to bring the first two DLC packages for Skyrim to the PS3’s main competitor a month sooner. As a result, the PC and PlayStation 3 are getting the shaft on one of the biggest games of 2011. The official statement says:

The first two add-on content drops for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be releasing exclusively on Xbox 360, 30 days before it’s available anywhere else.

Bethesda has had a history of bringing disappointing ports to the PS3, so this really comes as no surprise. Thankfully, the deal is only for 30-days of timed exclusivity, so chances are you’ll still be playing through the massively large RPG experience by the time the first DLC package hits the PS3.

If you still feel like supporting Bethesda after hearing about this, then you may want to check out the recently announced Skyrim Collector’s Edition which we recently detailed. Both the CE and regular edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will release worldwide on November 11th.
