wow, I never thought i would see a skyrim discussion on ATS!
firstly, i play skyrim, but on xbox 360, before i got my own copy i was watching my friend play on the ps3, and i almost never bought it!
my friend got the issue where after a game save reaches a certain size (round about 10mb it seems to be) the game starts lagging to the point that its
unplayable. So far he has made 3 characters but for him it is impossible to complete every quest with one character because of the lag. One other
issue for him is that he has no internet, so even if a patch gets made he cant get it!
bethesda should be answering some serious questions over this ... I have read that porting the game to the ps3 was not the priority to bethesda due to
them working more on the xbox experience and the pc versions and through whatever the hell they were doing it has eventualy led them to selling a
version of a game on a platform that simply was not tested properly.
The lack of testing is the big issue for me, as the lag and other ps3 bugs have been reported to only effect various releases and configs of ps3's
(various disk drives, hdd's, motherboards and so on), bethesda have very clearly not properly tested skyrim on every ps3 version and for me that is
verging on illegal! ... these are consoles, not pc's , there is no excuse for bethesda being so half arsed.
its a shame, as on the xbox360 skyrim is bloody excellent and doesnt get any issues (sorry guys).
