Skyrim DLC on PSN

Bethesda and Sony have finally brought Skyrim’s DLC packs to the PlayStation 3 and they are starting things off right with a sale.

Skyrim’s latest and greatest DLC pack Dragonborn is actually the first to make its way over to Sony’s gaming platform. In an attempt to make up for a huge delay between the release of the DLC on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, Bethesda and Sony are teaming up to celebrate the launch of Skyrim’s DLC with a 50 percent off sale for the first week of it’s release.

[adsense250itp]In case you missed it, Dragonborn finally landed on PSN Tuesday, which means this sale will only be running until Feb. 19. Just for reference, the DLC’s regular price is $19.99. The sale price is listed at $9.99. It’s still not the cheapest DLC on the market but the lower price is more than worth it for the amount of content players will be receiving in return.

The same week-long sale will also be applied to the other two upcoming Skyrim content packs. The Hearthfire DLC that allows players to build homes and expand their families will be available on Feb. 19, with the vampire-themed Dawnguard coming shortly after on Feb. 26. Both will retail for $19.99, with the same first week sale price of $9.99.

Originally, Bethesda had an agreement with Microsoft to grant the Xbox 360 a 30-day exclusivity period on Skyrim’s bonus content packs. After several issues with Skyrim’s performance on the PS3, Sony began looking into fixing the problem. Everything from severe frame rate issues to game-breaking bugs made Skyrim unplayable to a large portion of PS3 users. However, the real issues arose when both Sony and Bethesda announced severe issues with Skyrim’s DLC on PS3. For several technical reasons, the DLC simply would not operate properly on the PS3.

It’s now eight months since the launch of Skyrim’s first DLC and it is finally making its way onto the PS3. Many angry fans were undoubtedly hoping for free DLC for this overly long waiting period but a 50 percent sale is pretty good consolation prize.
