Shivering Isles, which was released today on the Xbox 360, gives players a new planet to explore, as well as new characters, spells, and attacks.  Bethesday says it brings more than 30 hours of gameplay to the story mode.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - Game of the Year Edition came out last month on the Xbox 360.  Microsoft's platform has been the first non-PC console to receive each Elder Scrolls title so far.  Bethesda has not yet announced if it plans to bring Shivering Isles to the PS3.

The PS3 GOTY Edition has a list price of $60, while Shivering Isles retails for around $30.
