It’s been a rough Skyrim journey for all platform owners. Whether it’s Xbox 360 with install and texture issues, PC with all sorts of strange bugs, or PS3 with lagging and data loss stresses, Skyrim is buggy as hell. The current issue for PS3 Skyrim players, however, deals with unending lag once 5-6MB of stored save data is surpassed.
Apparently the problem isn’t caused by having too many saved files, as the same issue can occur when using just one file since the longer you play, the larger said file becomes.
Bethesda’s told everyone to “calm down”, and “be patient”, they’re working on it, ostensibly. But this is not a good showing from a company that’s released so many games.
