Bethesda Apologizes To Frustrated PlayStation Owners

Bethesda Softworks SVP Pete Hines says he's "sorry" to PlayStation fans frustrated with Starfield's Xbox console exclusivity.

In an interview with GameSpot, Hines was asked to comment on Starfield, and some Bethesda games more broadly, becoming Xbox exclusives after the studio's acquisition by Microsoft. As you might expect, Hines can't wave a magic wand and bring Starfield, Elder Scrolls 6, and Redfall to PS5, but he can offer his sincere sympathies.

"If you're a big fan of the stuff we make and a game that we're making is no longer available on your platform, I totally understand if you're unhappy or pissed, or whatever," Hines said. "Like, I get it. Those are all real feelings and frustrations. How should you deal with that, I haven't the foggiest idea. I would never presume to say, 'Oh, here's how you can make it better and feel better.'"

While he isn't focused on remedying the predicament of PlayStation players looking forward to future Bethesda games, Hines does the take time to apologize directly to that group of people, despite the situation being out of his hands.

"I don't know how to allay the fears and concerns of PlayStation 5 fans other than to say, well, I'm a PlayStation 5 player as well and I've played games on that console and there's games I'm gonna continue to play on it, but if you want to play Starfield, PC and Xbox, sorry. All I can really say is 'I apologize', because I'm certain that's frustrating to folks. But there's not a whole lot I can do about it."

Meanwhile, Todd Howard, another recognizable figure at Bethesda, said today that despite regrettably losing some of its audience, Starfield's Xbox exclusivity will make it "a better product" by allowing Bethesda to focus on optimizing the game for a narrower range of platforms.

"You don't ever want to leave people out, right? But at the end of the day, your ability to focus and say, this is the game I want to make, these are the platforms I want to make it on, and being able to really lean in on those is going to make for a better product," Howard said.

Sony players could just build a PC, since they are all ballers and wish to play at the highest quality possible, if you let BX tell it.

Acquisitions usually don't make a company better they tend to get worse. Bethesda was already going downhill before the acquisition.

I plan to get starfield concept seems dope.

I don't think a lot of Xbox players want to play them either tbh. They just want to say they play them because it's exclusive. I do want to see more of Starfield but it's fu*k rpgs for me.

what's with companies scared of playstation lately? every time they do something that can be seen as negative towards PS, they apologize right away just to keep the door open in the event something changes later on



never seen insomniac, ND or any of the other PS devs apologize to xbox peasants even tho their acquisitions caused meltdowns amongst the Xbox community everybody scared of the king
