If you were unfortunate enough to try the dazzling
wonderful game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on a PlayStation 3, you have our pity.
As we’ve detailed elsewhere,
after a certain number of hours of Skyrim on the PS3, many players have hit
game breaking bugs, including some laughably slow framerate.
At last there seems to be light at the end of this glitchy tunnel, as
today released a patch for download in the North America and Europe that
might finally address these issues for Sony-based players.
On the official blog
Bethesda detailed the fixes and the PS3’s “occasional performance issues resulting from long
was at the top of the list. Other fixes including errant corpses and
overly-friendly dragons also made the list, all of which will hopefully not be
an issue after this, as we all know Bethesda games are perfect after the first
patch. Sarcasm aside, at least it was nice to see Bethesda push live the PS3 patch
early, perhaps in recognition of just how widespread the issues are. The 360
and PC iterations of the patch should smooth over some of the problems on those
systems when it hits this Wednesday.
Have you installed the update yet, and if so have you
noticed any improvements? Looking at comments online, the results seem mixed.
