Someone tell me why Dawnguard is going to be released on the Xbox 360 first? How is that fair to PC and PS3 gamers?

What is Microsoft's intention with this? Do they really think people will buy an Xbox just to play Dawnguard?

it is designed to come out on the xbox 360 because the 360 version takes precendent over the other versions

thats how its always been, xbox gets mainly all the dlc's first, big reason why they charge 60$ subscription fee and such

Microsoft have a exclusivity deal with Bethesda. Which is why every Fallout/Elder Scroll DLC comes out on the 360 first, then eventually comes out on system

This has always confused me. If microsoft have a deal with bethesda to get it early on 360 then why not PC too? Windows is also owned by microsoft O.o

Did you think they charged Xbox live users for nothing? They spend that money on getting exclusives and early releases for the marketplace. (Like minecraft)

Ah okay that makes sense. So I guess it's balanced out for PS3 users since we get free online?

Yeah, with cod black ops my friend was getting the dlc like 2 weeks after I did. So while PS3 users get online for free, they have to wait a little longer for DLC, not much of a bonus for 360 users, but, whatever.

It's always been that way. Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine were released on the Xbox before they were released on the PS3 and PC.

That's just the way it is.

But why? Just because Microsoft paid for it? I just don't understand why Microsoft would do that, doesn't really have many benefits for them. Unless I'm missing something.

How long was it before Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine were released on other platforms?

I'd seriously rather have Microsoft pay for more exclusives rather than just early DLC. Its just annoying, Sony are doing the same with Battlefield 3 expansion packs.

I don't know the details of why it's released on the Xbox before it's being released on the PS3 and PC.

As for the gap in between releases: you'll have to check Wikipedia for that.
