PC Dawnguard Info "This Week"

Last week Bethesda's Pete Hines tweeted "Just sit tight. We'll have info soon" in response to concerns that the Xbox 360 exclusivity of Dawnguard had ended without word on plans for a PC edition of this DLC for The Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim. Today he follows this will another tweet suggesting news on should come this week, saying: "Nothing has been said/announced about it. We should have info later this week." Thanks MCV.

Yeah but every time DICE talked about Bad Company 2 and BF3 selling well on PC they also pointed out the Xbox version still sold considerably more. As for TES, Oblivion was said by Bethesda to have sold "many times over" more on Xbox. Could Skyrim be THAT different? I doubt it, but I guess stranger things have happened.

No actually what I recall them saying about BC2 was that the PC SKU sold on par with both consoles taken individually. Consoles together compromise a significant market portion. All I've heard anyone from EA or Dice say about BF3 is total sales. The PC audience is larger than you seem to give it credit. Consoles still make a shitload of money and the genre representation is better than the PC but the right combination of brand recognition, word of mouth and genre can make for an incredible seller on the PC platform.

Oblivion was a long time ago and comparisons between them aren't very relevant. Both Steam and DD in general have grown massively since then. Given the amount of post-release support and attention the PC version has been seeing (along with their vague praise about PC sales) I'd say the situation could potentially be that different.
