More information on the release of Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC for PS3 and PC is to come later this week.
This news comes after a user asked PR manager Pete Hines about the release for the DLC. The Bethesda Softworks employee replied with “Nothing has been said/announced about it. We should have info later this week.”
This doesn’t necessarily mean a release date, but could be one step further to making the content multi-platform, after it released over a month ago on the Xbox 360.
It’s the third of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade and this weeks Arcade release is Deadlight!

With this past week marking the start of London’s 2012 Olympics, we see the event reflected in the gaming charts of the week, with Lego Batman getting knocked off the top spot after its five week reign. The only new entry this week is FIFA 12, strangely enough, even with FIFA 13 not very far away it seems the world wants their football action. Skyrim has climbed two places this week, thanks to the Dawnguard DLC, we assume.
1. London 2012: The Offical Video Game (+1)
2. Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (-1)
3. Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games (+5)
4. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (-1)
5. Batman: Arkham City (+2)
6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (-1)
7. The Amazing Spider-Man (-3)
8. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (+2)
9. FIFA 12 (New Entry)
10. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (-4)
