Guess Which Platform Gets Skyrim DLC First

Illustration for article titled Guess Which Platform Gets emSkyrim/em DLC First

The downloadable love affair between Bethesda and Microsoft continues with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, as the first two installments of add-on content are revealed as 30-day exclusives for the Xbox 360.


They did it for Fallout: New Vegas, and heck, for awhile there it looked like the PlayStation 3 version of Fallout 3 wouldn't get downloadable content at all, so it comes as no surprise to anyone that the new Elder Scrolls game due out November 11 will be followed by a pair of 30-day exclusive add-on content packs for the Xbox 360.

Now don't get all upset, PlayStation 3 and PC gamers. For all we know those Xbox 360 players might just be getting first dibs at some horse armor. Or they could be getting epic new locations with new creatures and amazing magical items that change the very face of the game itself.


The point is, if we start fussing now we'll be all fussed-out when we find out what the first downloadable content is. We have to pace ourselves.

OMG, Really Bethesda? I was planning on actually buying add-ons for this game but this on top of the "Scrolls" bullshit just swayed me back to "acquiring it by alternate means".
