Bethesda clarifies Skyrim update plans

by William Schwartz on August 7, 2012


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim update that recently arrived on the PC via Steam, will be arriving on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Thursday August 9th. The update will hit worldwide on the Xbox 360, with PlayStation 3 users in Europe to receive the update early next week.

When the patch for Skyrim arrives on PlayStation 3, players will finally get the contents from version 1.6 as well.  Patch 1.6 included gameplay features like horse mounted combat.  Xbox 360 players will see upgraded Kinect features that improve upon the voice recognition system.

It was thought that Skyrim update 1.7 would lead to the release of Dawnguard on the PlayStation 3, but Bethesda has reiterated that it has no new information about the PS3 version of the expansion.

Say Something
  • The Green Ring of Life

    I knew there was a reason that I bought this on the Xbox 360.

  • The Future of Sega

    Although this is karma for Sony for what they did to my beloved Dreamcast… it’s sad to see Sony getting dickslapped by Microsoft. For 7 years Microsoft has bukkaked Sony without a cloth LMAO XD.

  • Frank

    LMAO Dude, ps3 released a year later and $200 more expensive and is only 2 million console sales behind. That’s pathetic. Wanna know what was rape? When the PS2 completely obliterated every console last gen in sales. What was it? 130 million ps2a compared to 25-30 million Xboxs and a combined total of 10 dreamcasts sold? In all reality though, I feel bad for xbots. They have one shitty game to look forward to next year. A Gears spinoff. MS only puts out useless apps and shit Kinect games. OMG I CAN WATCH ESPN ON MY XBOX? THAT’S SO COOL!-NOT!! Have fun watching YouTube vids while we play The Last of Us and that new God Of War.

  • Wtf

    I just bought this game today on ps3, and with my luck the game won’t even fucking start.

    Every time i start a new game it goes to the loading screen then freezes. Bullshit

  • The Future of Sega

    Frank,

    Were those 150 million consoles sold based on “half-off” or Black Friday sales?? Lol… tell me how many millions of PS2s were returned upon launch…yeah…divide that 150 by 3 and that’s your true score. Xbox and PS2 were dead even.

  • Frank

    Okay sega, that’s the dumbest thing I ever heard. I’ve literally never even heard of that. Anyways, let’s say it did, which it didn’t. That would mean it sold 50 million, compared to Xboxs 30 million. That’s still 20 million more nimrod. You surely are in denial. Man, you really were devastated when PS2 destroyed the Dreamcast, weren’t you? And you wanna talk about black Friday sales? How about all those 360 consoles that died as a result of the RRoD? What about those? That’s atleast two million in sales as a result. Sooo that means theyre tied this gen. Idiot. I mean, I bought 2. Imagine how many other people did as well! I’m using 100% FACTUAL information whereas you and that wtf guy need to lie. Really, think about that. You’re lying just to feel better about your crappy console. Buyers remorse much?

  • Frank

    Same with you wtf. Needing to lie about your console proves how bad it is. I’ve been playing Skyrim since launch and even then it wasn’t that bad. Whatever though, enjoy your shitty Gears spinoff! We all remember how “great” ODST was, right? LMAO

  • Wtf

    what the hell are you talking about?

  • Wtf

    Nvm dudes, got it to work by deleting and re installing the game data. :)

  • The Future of Sega

    I’m just appalled at the vast majority of PS3 gamers who cannot engage civily in coversation without name calling or using foul language. But ok…you want to play hard ball, I’m game!

    Hey Frankieboy,

    Roses are red, violets are blue. I have five fngers… the third one’s for you. :-)

  • Frank

    Sorry WTF, thought you were trolling. Glad you fixed your problem.

    And back to Sega. LMFAOOO! What are you, 12? I said crap. Did that really hurt your feelings? Dude, i called you an idiot, because like most Xbots, you guys can’t make a valid argument. Same shit since ’07 when the PS3 “had no games” and how “PSN is still laggy”. Those are straight up lies. And now you’re trying to tell me that PS2 and Xbox were tied in sales? Get over yourself dude. Being an owner of JUST an XBox must suck. M$ is catering to casuals way more than core gamers. Useless app after useless app. Crappy Kinect game after crappy Kinect game, and you’re sitting here telling me that 360 is the better console? I own one bro. Hasen’t been used since beating Gears 3 because even THAT games once challenging online is now easy. 15 respawns per team? C’MON! You guys defend paying for Live with “timed exclusive DLC”, yet we get more exlusive GAMES, not DLC, GAMES. and which costs more to make? But whatever. You’re gonna completely ignore my comment, vote down, and reply with the same BS that every Xbot says when getting proved wrong.

  • The Future of Sega

    Frank,

    Some babies were dropped on their head but you were clearly thrown at a wall.

    I never said that I was an Xbot so you are stereotyping AND using foul language/name calling as your crutch. It’s difficult to take your comments as serious when you talk like a clinically insane moron lmao. And by the way… I own both a PS3 and Xbox 360. :-) Can you say… OWNAGE??? LOL!

  • The Future of Sega

    Ok Mr. Franks,

    Name one game on PS3 that single-handily sold 10 million+ PS3 skus when consumers purchased it? Yeah… I rest my case. Xbox 360 is better than PS3 and Microsoft will always own Sony, no matter what. Money and sales talk….not exclusives buddy.

    The majority of people have chosen Xbox 360 as the better console, and that’s all that matters.

  • Frank

    Well maybe if Sony deprived us of exclusives, they’d sell more. You get ONE good exclusive a year dude, obviously they’re gonna sell. Again, next year Sony is releasing three as opposed to one on Xbox. That’s terrible. Ms is just doing what they did with the original Xbox. So you say you’re not a fanboy yet you’re argument contradicts that. And I’m insane? Why, cause I’m not making bs stories up like ps2 selling 50 millions consoles. What are you, one of those conspiracy theorists? Was 9/11 orchestrated by the USA? Did the holocaust not happen? Is the end of the world coming? LMAOOO

  • Frank

    And dude, MS is a way bigger company. Obviously they make more money. Sony made a mistake by investing and pursuing 3D, but Playtation is their strongest brand. How is 2 million behind in sales getting “owned”? If the PS3 launched at $400 as opposed to $600, MS probably wouldn’t be here right now. And that’s realistically speaking. You overlook how dominant the ps2 was with your silly little theories. People jumped to Xbox, me included because the ps3 was too expensive. If they were the same price, PS3 would have at least sold 75 million by now.

  • The Future of Sega

    You know, i would share a thought with you… but I’m afraid you have no where to put it. :-) Anyways as usual you’re missing the point. The point is that people are entertained with Microsoft/Xbox 360 and the sales clearly show that. It doesn’t matter if they have exclusives or not, people just want to play F-U-N games.

    It’s like the race between the rabbit and turtle. Sony’s PS2 started off bright and gained a huge lead while Microsoft’s Xbox slowly dragged behind as the turtle. But while Sony took a nap before completing the race with it’s PS3 Microsoft’s Xbox 360 slowly came up and shocked everyone with the win. And all of you PS3 fanboys sit in denial. LOL!!!

  • The Future of Sega

    “How is 2 million behind in sales getting “owned”?”

    Because it took them 6 years to catch up. That’s a little over half a decade to be trailing that far behind which means business suicide for 99.9% of companies.

  • Frank

    I totally agree, Sony became too complacent after last gen. And totally agree that they were idiots for setting the price that high, again the 360 was my first next gen console dude. I think you were missing my point. My gripe is people that don’t own a PS3 brainlessly bash it without having played it for a decent amount of time. It seems as if people are still bitter about it’s initial price point. When it was first announced in ’05 to the price announcement at E3 ’06, EVERYONE wanted one. After the price was given, it obviously pushed people away to the Wii(casuals) and 360(core gamers) and it’s completely understandable. But here we are 7 years later and people still look down on the Ps3, and for no reason. When people say “PSN lags” or that “PS3 has no games”, those are blatant lies. and thats why PS3 users get so knotted up. Because by saying that, we can tell automatically that you haven’t played PS3 long enough to pass judgement. And i’m speaking in general, not trying to “offend” you again, just want you to hear me out.

    • The Future of Sega

      Hey Frank I was just kidding around. I wanted to see how many thumbs downs I would get. :-) Lol just kidding. But no seriously I was one of the few who purchased a 60 gig PS3 for $599.99 (plus tax) in 2006. I’ve kept, enjoyed, hated, complained, reconciled, cursed, kissed, and farted on my PS3 since then.

      The PS3 is a love/hate thing for me given the lack of Blockbuster selling exclusives, the web browser freezing up, and Sony’s lack of confidence of stopping Microsoft from buying 1 month exclusives.

      It breaks my heart that I didn’t purchase a PS2 when I had the chance. I thought Dreamcast and Xbox were good enough but booooooy was I foolish for not purchasing a PS2! I expected the PS3 to fill that void in me… it did not. Neither did my Xbox 360 when it broke down 2 years ago.

      I haven’t fixed it since then. :-) But I swear PS4/Xbox 720 better not piss me off!

  • Shayne

    No one seems to be talking about Skyrim, just some pathetic fan war.

    Let’s all agree on this: Wii sucks and unicorns aren’t real.

  • gus

    I think the EXACT same thing fran… Personally I think Ps3 is better just for the graphics and the controller, not to mention inFamous and Uncharted… But that doesn’t mean I hate the XBox. I dont have one… but I’ve played it enough times to say it is almost as good as the ps3, Plus, the reason XBox was made was basically to play pc games on a bigger screen, which has already become obsolete, and because it costs way less than a good pc that can run skyrim at the highest graphics at like max fps… Why don’t we just forget about the differences between ps3 and xbox and insult nintendo and the wii for its poor graphics and gameplay (of most games)

  • the face

    i wonder how dawnguard is perfoming on ps3 right now after this many days of working on it?
