Skyrim’s PS3 Lag Got You Down? Bethesda Hears You

If you are like me and tons of other PS3 gamers that own Skyrim, you may have been suffering from some technical difficulties. Most notably: severe lag at times. There have been moments during my experience with the game where it will freeze, lag/studder around environments for extended periods of time, or even just be all around sluggish. It is very noticeable because, otherwise, the game has a beautiful and high framerate. Things like that tend to make errors like this stick out even more.

The most recent patch fixed some of those problems (for some of the gamers) but no where near all or enough of them. Well, rest assured, Bethesda understands and hears your frustration. According to this statement released on the official Bethesda Blog, they’re hard at work:

While the 1.2 update fixed the long-term play issues for most PS3 users, we are aware that is not the case for some. We’ve been reaching out to a number of those users to collect save games, so we can take a look at their specific issues. Right now we know it’s not one thing, but a combination of smaller ones that some folks are seeing, but others are not. Some seem to be the PS3 autosaving in the background (you can turn that off), some may be SPU AI updates, and some may relate to dynamic system memory allocation. These fixes are not in the current 1.3 update that is in final testing, but will be in future ones. We understand how frustrating it can be when your game is having issues, and we thank all of you for your continued feedback and patience. Rest assured we take your gameplay experience seriously and will continue working on this until it’s resolved.

Does this reassure you, or are you not satisfied until you can personally confirm the issues are gone? Let us know in the comments!
