With the Skyrim PS3 DLC still missing in action a disgruntled gamer took to Twitter to say they would not be buying any future Bethesda games on the platform as they may get short changed when it comes to extra content.
“There are plenty of reasons not to buy a game. If that’s yours, that’s up to you,” responded Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda.
The Tweeter described this as an “appalling answer” and asked a pretty valid question: what about future Bethesda games? Will PlayStation gamers who purchase Dishonored miss out on extra content?
“I don’t buy [games] on the promise of DLC, regardless of platform. But I rarely play DLC anyway. For me, it’s about the game,” replied Pete.
An honest answer but probably not the reassurance gamers required, in fact his comment prompted another Tweeter to say “Just cancelled my pre-order because of your ignorant attitude about DLC. Your customer base isn’t as malleable as you think.”
It wouldn’t hurt Bethesda to do a weekly blog post and let the community know how things are progressing. Perhaps if they explained in a little more detail why they are having problems it may help calm the fans.
