Skyrim Patch to Fix PS3 Save Game Lag Issues

Hopefully the upcoming patch won’t fix the hilariously exaggerated physics when a giant smacks you over a mountain with one hit.

Skyrim’s great, but it’s had its share of problems, too. Xbox users have been complaining of texture streaming issues when playing from an installed copy on the hard drive, while PC owners were temporarily distressed to discover a minor update stopped them from using all that extra RAM they had.

It’s PS3 owners who were hit hardest with problems, however, with many complaining of huge amounts of lag when their save games became too large, making the game all but unplayable. Fortunately, there’s a fix on the way, currently in certification for both PS3 and 360 — and there’s a major PC patch coming, too. Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines estimates that we should see the updates the week after Thanksgiving.

“Improved performance for long-term play on PS3″ is confirmed as an issue which has been fixed with this update, but there’s no word one way or the other on whether the Xbox patch will fix the texture streaming issues for those who wish to install the game to their hard drive. Hines won’t give a full list of fixes until the patch has been certified.

Watch out for the patch the week after Thanksgiving, and follow Hines on Twitter for the latest.
