I should finish Skyrim. There are probably enough mods out at this point to make the game fun again for another 20 hours.

The fact that they'e kept "Skyrim" in the title, while all previous expansions didn't keep the main game name, leads me to think they're approaching this somewhat differently.

Maybe no new landmass or something.

As much as I hate announcements of announcements, I can't help but be super hyped for the expansion. And hey, at least we got a name and a rough date.

I think people getting screwed because they happened to be on one platform over the other have the right to be upset. Derp.

Yeah. I don't think that word means what they think it means.

In the long run I think everyone benefits from arrangements like this this. I'm sure this DLC expansion, alongside the GTA4 expansions wouldn't have been remotely as ambitious if the developers were solely relying on DLC sales to generate revenue. Microsoft's moneyhats are surely factored into the budgets and thus the scale of timed-exclusive DLC projects (if Microsoft is paying for timed exclusive DLC they have a vested interest for that DLC to be of a sufficient scope to merit having it as exclusive in the first place, no?), which are then consumed and enjoyed by everyone (albeit at a later date).

$30!! It better not be. For $60 we got the entirety of Skyrim's graphical development, world, classes, perks, quests, etc.

If they're going to charge $30, it better be half of Skyrim's content worth of new stuff. It especially better not be $30 for the online download purchase as I'm not buying a box, disc, books, etc with profit markup from Gamestop, Amazon, or wherever.

It'll be $30 with around 1/5th of the quest content offered in Skyrim.

Bad news: Shivering Isles is STILL $30 (2400 points or $10 more than the GOTY version of Oblivion costs used) on XBL so if Dawnguard is comparable expect a high price.

Shivering Isles is still 2400 ms points (30 bucks) right now.. today. So it is not crazy for something big which we think this will be.

Which is dumb because I bought the Oblivion GOTY Edition (which includes Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles) for ~$25.

I'm trying to decide whether this applies to the PC audience, for getting the DLC a month later. Or the 360 people, for never being able to get mods at all.

If it makes you feel better, Skyrim DLC will be "expansion size". At least somewhat going by what the devs have said.

EDIT: Oh, and there will be more than one expansion.

Well at least PC owners get to have their expansion in 30 days, and usually get faster price drops on games/content. While 360 owners will never see those mods.

I usually double dip on these kinds of games. Once there's a GOTY edition for this one with the expansions, some incredible mods will also be out and I'll have an upgraded PC to play it on max settings...win/win.

Not getting mods isn't an issue because it's simply not supported by the platform and is completely out of the hands of the developer. Not really comparable to this situation.

So do we know how long this has been in development? I was hoping for something of the size of Shivering Isles but less then a year (assuming they started after the release of Skyrim) seems a tad to short to make something of that scope :(

Anyway, Dawnguard suggests a faction of some sort. Hoping we get some of the awesomeness that was the Game Jam, I want my moving platforms, cabin building and new mounts.

Thats great but it is here to stay so these are your options. Timed exclusive so every gets to play it or straight exclusive that totally bans content from 2/3 of the users. Sony and MS will continue to do this and third publishers will continue to shop it around to the highest bidder.
