Sorry, but the developers screwed up on this one. If it was available when the console versions were, I would have bought it at premium pricing.

Skyrim will monopolize my PC gaming time up until SWTOR is out (and longer perhaps). I have no time for Arkham City until maybe some time next year. I will be buying it a bargain prices then.

So you're saying they should have launched with the consoles even though it wasn't ready and would have been buggy, or that they should have launched all 3 platforms on November 22nd when everyone everywhere is playing Skyrim and MW3 and waiting for this to hit the bargain bins?

Lol

Also, who on the pc is going to be playing skyrim when it first comes out? I thought all of us cranky pc gamers were waiting for 3 years for all the problems to be modded in by other early adopters? And MW3? We already have BF3 right? Isn't MW3 a console game?


Hehe, yea I always hear about how terrible the Elder Scrolls games are on release. Yet I have bought every one of them since Arena on release day and have had a blast every time. So, yea, I am luckily off for holiday this friday and will be putting many hours in Skyrim. Looking forward to it!

With how many of you were talking about it I thought it was actually already out on PC.

This also explains why I haven't impulse bought it yet.

WTF?! Its delayed **AGAIN**?!

First same day release. Then NOV 15th. Now NOV 22nd.

About to just buy this damned thing on PS3.

And that's exactly what they want you to do.
And I am trying to resist. But game after game coming out late (even as much as a day tho the track record is a few months) makes it harder to wait for the PC version especially when it is not a FPS game (I just CAN NOT play FPS games with a controller).

And they'll blame the poor sales on PC to piracy.
And yet it never crosses their minds treating the PC customer base like 3rd class citizens TIME AND TIME AGAIN has 0 effect on sales.

Oh lookie we get the all important xbox/ps3 versions on shelves, and now we'll hammer out the PC version and you scrubs can just wait for it.
Months later we'll keep hyping our product and it's 2nd launch with things like D11 support and physx, it's gonna be so great!

Suck a dick Rocksteady.

Seem's I'm fated not to play this one. After reading this earlier I went down and rented it for the PS3 - which got YLOD after 90 mins of gameplay and won't even boot up.

There is no reason it should not have been completely done at the same time they released it on console.

NO ONE can seam to properly schedule PC development time so all versions are out on the same date. Oh wait... no one gives two shits about PC gaming anymore.

This delay doesn't bother me, since I will be playing Skyrim anyway.

Yep--the delay cost them a sale-will look for it cheap next summer during the gaming dry spell.

Wtf.. a 3 day delay for "the rest of Europe?"

U.S. releases are almost always on Tuesdays, and European releases are almost always Fridays, so Euro releases are almost always three days "late" or four days "early" compared with the U.S.

I bought the PC version like 2 months ago on Green Man Gaming for $35. Skyrim will most certainly be taking all my gaming time, but when we hit a dry season I'll have a great game waiting to be played.

I hope they don't expect this to sell well. Delaying a port for over a month tends to result in lower sales, especially when those who really, really wanted to play the game have already done so on consoles. I'm pretty sure publishers know this, which is why you never see the X360 versions delayed at all.
