Bethesda Promises Patch for PS3 Skyrim Next Week

November 22, 2011 -

Bethesda announced that it is hard at work fixing bugs and glitches associated with various versions of its epic RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. After pages of forum posts and an avalanche of consumer complaints, Bethesda will attempt to fix the issues plaguing PlayStation 3 Skyrim players with a new patch next week - after the Thanksgiving holiday.

"PS3 and 360 updates have been submitted for certification. PC coming too. Current estimate is they will be live the week after Thanksgiving," said Bethesda's Pete Hines.

"On the list for this update is improved performance for long-term play on PS3."

A large number of PlayStation 3 players have been plagued by a glitch with save files. After playing a few hours those files get bigger and - once they hit the nine MB mark - the game begins to become laggy. As the player attempts to soldier on in this lag, the game performance gets worse, eventually making it unplayable. Xbox 360 users have also reported texture issues and PC owners are dealing with fair share of glitches and technical quirks, but Bethesda has not confirmed a patch to fix these issues on other platforms.

Given that there are 3.5 million copies of the game on various platforms in the hands of players - with another 3.5 or so copies in retail stores - there's no doubt that Bethesda wants to get an outstanding technical issues squashed so they can concentrate on releasing DLC.

You can reapply the large address aware fix via the code injection method up on skyrimnexus.  It's the same thing that was done for FO:NV (same author) and works perfectly.  Look for FAA fix.

I hope for the console people's sake it's more helpful that today's PC patch.  All the PC patch did was ruin one of the fixes users have come up with to keep Skyrim from crashing so often.

360 user.  Can't say I've really had any unusual problems with the game.  Just the occasional freezing when loading a new area, but that's been a problem in every Bethesda large world game I've played (Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3).  And that doesn't happen frequently enough to make me mad.  It happens after a few hours of playing.  It's the game telling me to take a break :)  As far as texture issues, I have 25 hrs logged so far and have only had 2 textures on some dragons not appear properly, but definitely not game breaking.

Sounds like PS3 users have it bad though with the lag issues.

The bigger the game the longer the beta stage, I'll wait for the whole game to be released in a super mega game of the year package.

Andrew EisenMarvel has replaced Manara on the variant covers for Thor #2 and Avengers and X-Men: AXIS #1. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think Marvel is learning the right lesson here.09/23/2014 - 6:26pm

quiknkoldlets take a moment to share some gaming memories, shall we?09/23/2014 - 5:28pm
MechaTama31I buy stuff off the eshop because it gives me the convenience of a flashcart without the guilt.09/23/2014 - 5:03pm
Montewell thanks for the info Eisen; try that the next time i need something off the eshop09/23/2014 - 3:54pm

MaskedPixelanteDear GP, something called "doubleverify" is causing some nasty browser issues on my end. Probably one of your ads.09/23/2014 - 2:36pm
Andrew EisenOh hell no. No, it took Nintendo a dog's age just to get to the point its competitors have been at for a while! (And it's still not there yet, in a lot of respects.)09/23/2014 - 2:26pm
IanCSame as PSN handles it, fi you are trying to say only nintendo do that.09/23/2014 - 2:23pm
Andrew EisenYou have to try to purchase something first. Pick a game, hit purchase and if your wallet doesn't have enough to cover it, you'll be given an option to "add exact funds" or something like that.09/23/2014 - 2:05pm
MonteI have seen no option for that on my 3DS; anytime i want to add funds it only gives me the option to add in denominations of $10, 20, 50 or 10009/23/2014 - 2:03pm
IanCWhat Andrew Wilson said. PSN is the same when you make a purchase over a certain price (£5 in the UK)09/23/2014 - 2:02pm
Andrew EisenNeither eShop charges sales tax either. At least in California.09/23/2014 - 2:00pm
Andrew EisenBoth Wii U and 3DS eShops allow you to add funds in the exact amount of whatever's in your shopping cart. If your game is $39.99, you can add exactly $39.99.09/23/2014 - 1:57pm
Infophile@Matthew Wilson: As I understand it, any regulations to force tax online would also set up an easy database for these stores to use, minimizing overhead.09/23/2014 - 1:30pm
MonteReally, the eshop just does next to nothing to make buying digitally advantagous for the customer. Its nice to have the game on my 3DS, but i can get more for less buying a physical copy at retail. And that's not even counting buying used09/23/2014 - 1:18pm
MonteIanC, The Eshop wallet system only lets you add funds in set denominations and the tax makes sure you no longer have round numbers so you ALWAYS loose money. A $39.99 game for instance requires you to add $50 instead of just $4009/23/2014 - 1:13pm
Matthew Wilsonbut thats just it those sites, even the small ones, sell all over the country.09/23/2014 - 11:12am
