Since the moment I saw the first trailer for Dishonored I have been going on and on about how good it looks and how much I am anticipating it. But being a PS3 owner, I am sort of dreading how it will play on the PS3 as well.
It is a well-known fact that Bethesda has been horrible to PS3 owners. Why do I say so? Well let's just take Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim into consideration. On PC and Xbox 360 it is perfect. On the PS3 there is a massive glitch that you only get to find out after playing the game for a while.
On top of that, DLCs always take forever to get to the PS3 and even when they are released, it is full of bugs! You all know that the latest DLC for Skyrim, Dawnguard, took forever to release. What many don't know is that Bethesda had to work real close with Sony in order to get Dawnguard to even work properly on the PS3!
The only ray of hope I see here is that Arkane Studios is mainly responsible for development. I hope they prioritized both consoles when developing the game. Recently a concerned gamer asked this question to Studio Head Pete Hines on Twitter “Will Dishonored run properly on the PS3? I don't want another Skyrim."
To this Pete Hines replied, "Dishonored runs very well on PS3. Press have been playing it all month at QuakeCon, Gamescom, and here at PAX. Ask all the press playing the PS3 version if you don't believe me."
Well I hope this is true and that Bethesda has learnt their lesson. The only thing we can do now is wait and see. If Bethesda doesn't pull their act together they risk losing a large section of the market which might even haunt them to the next generation.
Thankfully Evil knows how to watch for their Ps3 fans having just released updated PS3 compatible modded controllers. Our PS3 mods now have the V2 update including mods like Spot Fire, Drop Shot, Akimbo Rapid Fire and more!
