Bethesda to Address PS3 Lag Issues in Skyrim

The 1.4 patch is on the way to save the day.

While the PC and 360 versions of Skyrim have benefitted from the recent patches, the PS3 version has been plagued by terrible lag issues. This is due to a memory problem where lengthy save files basically weigh the game down, causing it to chug drastically. However, PS3 owners can finally start to rejoice, as help is coming later this month.

Bethesda was hosting a livestream that would detail the changes made to the game in recent patches. A fan asked the company via Twitter what was going to be done about the lag issues on the PS3. “We’re addressing that in the 1.4 update,” came the reply on the Bethesda Twitter feed. They went on to say that the patch should be going live later this month, which isn’t too long, considering we’re already a third of the way through January.

We’ll keep you up to date with the ongoing saga that is the Skyrim patch story. We promise not to make any “arrow in the knee” jokes.

It only took them 2+ months.  For me personally, Skyrim's an afterthought now

Yeah, I remember hearing some sites specifically saying that the PS3 version of Skyrim wasn't in their GOTY considerations. Pretty sad.

EarthBound Review Rewind

Remember that silly old trope in teen movies where the nerdy “plain Jane” character magically becomes super attractive just by removing her glasses? It was a bit like that with EarthBound- an RPG that was largely ignored when released on the Super NES in its twilight years. Nintendo’s ill-conceived ad campaign telling the player that “this game stinks” didn’t do it any favors either. The game’s overtly humorous kid-friendly facade was unusual for its time and quickly written off as ugly and boring by all but the most accepting of RPG fans. But thanks to the positive praise in gaming forums years later, it picked up steam and eventually became lauded as one of the best on the Super NES. Much like the bespectacled character in every 90s teen comedy, it was as if EarthBound removed its glasses. Nothing was different about it- just our perception of what was already there.
