The first two downloadable content packs for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be exclusive to Xbox 360 for 30 days.

It is not clear what the DLC will contain but Bethesda signed on for a similar arrangement last year that saw the substantial Fallout: New Vegas DLC “Dead Money” hit Xbox LIVE before arriving on PlayStation 3 and PC at a later date.

Microsoft recently stated that its policy is to not publish any downloadable content that has a window of exclusivity on another platform. European Xbox boss Chris Lewis said, “We're a little biased, so obviously we're going to look to protect our own space as best we can and get exclusivity.”

“Whilst I can't be specific about the terms and conditions, you can be very confident we seek to maximise our own advantage to ensure the playing field is even, and certainly plays to our advantage wherever possible.”
