Skyrim: PS3 patch/fix desperation after problems

Skyrim: PS3 patch/fix desperation after problems

The lag in Skyrim is getting a joke on the PS3, which is creating a lot of desperation for PS3 owners. Some of our readers might not have experienced this problem, although these same people may have a small save file size.

During our review of Skyrim we’ve spent many hours testing the game and giving our readers insight, although it seems these problems get worse the more you play. If you’re experiencing issues on another platform, feel free to share in the comments.

Slow saves might be something Bethesda is not able to fix, although the lagging is crazy. Today we’ve been using Skyrim for over 10 hours and our system has crashed three times during battles, while we cannot confirm if this is an issue affecting more users, it seems to increase the bigger the save game file gets.

These issues have resulted in some upset from certain PlayStation 3 owners, with gamers complaining about the $60 cost for a game that Bethesda must have known is broken, and while we don’t agree with that line of thought, a patch/fix is needed as soon as possible.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is amazing and while we should be reviewing the game for a few hours, instead it has grabbed a lot more time and is hard to get away from. Skyrim is a game that cannot be reviewed in a matter of hours like many other games, this RPG is almost endless with so much to discover, although the PS3 lag issue is really upsetting fans.

One quick fix many bloggers are talking about involves saving the game, then quitting and restarting. While this is a pain, it should clear memory and reset how much data is currently being remembered, stopping the well-known PS3 lag in Skyrim.

Have you experienced crashing and lag in the PS3 version of Skyrim? Those of you that want the game, but haven’t bought it yet, go ahead and get Skyrim because the good far outweighs the bad, and it has been officially confirmed there is a patch on the way, although we’re not sure if this will fix the PS3 problems.
