Best thing to do...take a break from the game until the patch is released.

Or back up your save if you can and keep playing.

oh shit a game on 360 got hit boo whoo..u guys like to mess with ps3 players when something happens(talking about skyrim DLC)so only fair karma hits u guys...but still i hope it gets figured out no true gamer deserves to work so hard and just to loose it all in the end....and custard this wasnt really targeted at you just to clear that up

Well this is a Virus that hit Xbox and PC it doesn't make the game unplayable, just unplayable with strangers for the mean time.

Plus a patch is getting released to adress the issue soon. Hardly a Skyrim issue similar to PS3.

Didn't read the article, huh? For the sake of clarity and your convenience, I quote, "This does not affect players on PC or PlayStation 3".

Feel free to hit the 'Helpful' bubble ;P

Hope it get's patched before more players get affected. Man, I would be pissed to lose my save file

In some ways this would piss me off, but I don't own the game and mostly plan on getting it on PS3 because of my Borderlands file is on it.

G20WLY2086d ago

Me too, I just haven't got round to this game yet, but still looking forward to getting it.

This news sucks, but at least it's not affecting all systems. I'm sure they'll fix it soon enough and normal business will resume - just hope not too many folk lose their saves in the meantime :(

I'd advised people to avoid playing online till the patch is out, dont wanna risk your characters.

pixelsword2086d ago

If that is what's causing the problem, that's good advice.

Hang in there everyone, I don't think Microsoft & Gearbox will let you down; software is a specialty of them both.

r212086d ago

Yeah, people can still play the SP, just by themselves and offline.
