"Recently, 1.2 Patch has just been released in Europe, but have you had a look before updating the patch" (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

I think we're being played here people. Those pics aren't two different pics, they're the same one. What are the odds of getting the exact same pic with the exact same NPC in the exact same pose from the exact same distance?
Darkfocus  +   1459d ago
well you could quicksave take the picture right when it loads and do it again -_- so the odds are very good...

There are actually two different screenshots here. If you save both, just view them and switch back and forth. You'll notice the clouds, trees, and plants change slightly.

Very minor difference, but then again the screenshots are so small it's hard to see a difference.
Keyop  +   1458d ago
A pointless article as the texture issue was on 360 and not PS3. Nothing has change regarding textures for PS3 owners. A before and after comparison on 360, where there actually was a problem would be a little more useful I think....
HardCover  +   1458d ago
I've heard plenty of people say that their PS3 copy got worse after the patch, in regards to textures.
sagapo  +   1459d ago
yep, me neither
admiralthrawn87  +   1459d ago
ps3 shouldve been the lowest version on anybody's priority list. even a fanboy should know the 360 version was gonna be more optimized. it only took FO3, new vegas to prove it.

and don't talk about oblivion, that was released with a year of patches and code improvements, not to mention most people forget that after the ps3 version was released, they repatched the 360 version which made it on par again.

if you can, get skyrim on pc...or not at all because really it's overrated. the witcher 2, dark souls, and waiting for kingdoms of amalur probably the better decision.

Lol - " dont get Skyrim because its overrated... Witcher 2, Dark Souls better decision" - Talk about comparing apples with oranges. Obviously you've played none these titles
admiralthrawn87  +   1459d ago
lol i've played all 3, i own all three. skyrim is a good game, just overrated.

dark souls is better imo as well as witcher 2. skyrim had no challenge at all, even on higher difficulty.
Tr10wn  +   1458d ago
Skyrim overrated? i own all 3 too and how can you say Dark Souls is better than Skyrim? the only thing i think is better is the combat, Dark Souls doesn't even have a story or it does? "Sarcasm" and about The Witcher 2 i played but never finish it, i said The Witcher 2 is the one overrated, the game is eyecandy and the story seems good but the world seems a little small to my taste. You can't really compare Dark Souls or The Witcher 2 to Skyrim massive world, now let me tell you why Skyrim is better than both Dark Souls and The Witcher 2, The world is massive over 150 dungeons, 300 hours of gameplay, Dragons, the game is literally endless and is way too epic which is a good thing, now tell me how does Dark Souls of The Witcher 2 better than this? I said is just Fanboyism, fine you like that game but is not really better.

'Edited' i read about the difficulty, saying Skyrim has no challenge even on Master is just ridiculous false, everyone i know is playing on expert because in master you see a mage and you are dead and elder/ancient dragons are nearly impossible now don't say "But in higher level i ownd everything" because Dark Souls is the easiest game once you get everything you need, you know like every game out there?

Just like Oblivion, Skyrim will be ALL about the mods.

The creation kit isn't out yet, so the modding hasn't actually really even begun (despite over two thousand mods being available right now). So yeah, anybody who cares about Skyrim PC version's rating right now isn't thinking the right away about these things.
D3mons0ul  +   1459d ago
You are scum.
Perjoss  +   1458d ago
sadly when a game becomes this popular it attracts all kinds of people, the players are playing the game but the haters, well they seem to love hanging around all the Skyrim forums making troll replies every time someone has anything positive to say about the game.

I have NO idea what pleasure there is to be had by being a hater, can anyone please explain this phenomenon. Surely if you dislike a game your time is better spent playing a game you DO like? im so confused.

It's just the guys opinion and he thought that people would use that old Oblivion comparison against him so threw in some knowledge so that didn't have to be what he came back to read.

Fair enough if you disagree you disagree but it's really not necessary to call him a Troll, Scum and say he's played none of the above.

Grow up
MysticStrummer  +   1458d ago
People who only own one console or who don't enjoy gaming on PC aren't necessarily fanboys, and fanboys will usually own only their chosen platform, so saying PS3 should be the lowest on anyone's priority list doesn't make much sense, especially when all versions of Skyrim have problems. You feel Skyrim is overrated. I strongly disagree with that but I do agree that Dark Souls is an overall cooler game just because I've played all the Elder Scrolls games and Skyrim is just another evolution of that series while Dark Souls feels more fresh and innovative even though it's an evolution of Demon's Souls. I've clocked about 120 hours on the PS3 version of Skyrim and haven't had many problems other than quests staying in my log after they're done. The save file size/framerate problem could be temporarily fixed by saving/quitting/continuing so that didn't bother me. I've noticed no difference in the visuals after the patch. Stop acting like the PS3 version is some travesty that should be avoided at all costs.
Adexus  +   1459d ago
I'm pretty sure those 2 pictures are exactly the same... not to mention the resolution is awful and it doesn't show of any textures whatsoever.

download a texture mod and it's done.
Si-Fly  +   1459d ago
Yup, so far I'm running the 2K texture mod, 4gb mod, detailed body's and faces, flora mod, realistic water mod, starry night and sun glare mods and the lovely FXAA mod, game is looking fantastic already, can't wait to see what all the guys at Skyrim Nexus come up with over the coming months ...
xtremexx  +   1459d ago
holy shit, might aswell step outside lol
milohighclub  +   1459d ago
Playing on ps3 just downloaded update and the textures look like they've been downgraded, proper sucks I didn't have any problems before the patch, wish I could remove update.
NeoTribe  +   1459d ago
Give it up man, ur full of shit. Ive got 130 hours in it and there NO difference at all. Nothing.... Notta....

No I ain't full of shit, go into the dungeons and take a look at the walls. I've taken a pic i'll upload it today.

sup with the shiny blurry walls that have no detail and look like the texture hasnt loaded in? the only people who are full of shit are bethesda for been 2 lazy to find a fix for performance issues (which i never had in the first place) with out affecting the rest of the game.

Take a statistics course sometime.

You could play 300 hours and it would still be stupid to think you by yourself is good enough data to determine what the average experience is.
milohighclub  +   1459d ago
Removed patch but now it won't allow me to load my game as the save file was created with the patch on. What a load of shit . Really quite gutted. I've put hours and hours into this game and can't enjoy it as I keep getting distracted by how crap the textures are. I know its a good game and really want to play. There was nothing wrong with the game in the first place.

Just downloaded the patch and the floor in Windhelm looks like a pixelated mess. My 11mb save also decreased in size to around 9.

Will be deleting the patch before I save over anything.
leogets  +   1459d ago
What a load of nothing
shoestring  +   1459d ago
Sooo all they did was turn up the contrast?
eak3  +   1459d ago
Im just going to make up some total bs about how the game sucks after the patch because of these supposed texture differences, I havent noticed a difference at all. People need to put away their small epeen magnifying glasses and just play the game.
Arsenic13  +   1459d ago
How did this get approved? Two extremely small and blurry images for a comparison post? Come on.
ForROME  +   1459d ago
LAME article for god sakes do a real comparison and put the pics closer so we dont have to scroll to see it I cant even see the difference
b00mFargl3  +   1459d ago
Its the same damn screen shot! What a bogus article.
tenacious_b  +   1459d ago
I'm a ps3 gamer but I got Skyrim on my 27 iMac *bootcamp* (playing with my Dualshock 3 via motion joy) I have about 40 mods installed. Just about all of the good ones I could find and I'm running at 35-60 FPS at 1440P Ultra everything besides shadows and AA *mod for that*. It's so *tears up* ... beautiful.
tee_bag242  +   1459d ago
I'm also playing on the iMac 27 i7 quad bootcamp. Give this a go if u have the 512ati card - 720p, 2xAA, everything ultra, shadows high. The IMac native res divides perfectly into 720p and it will run at 60 FPS with occasional load dips to 45 + no jaggies and look better than 1440p without AA and runs beautifully.
I'm 90 % a console guy but stoked I got this for PC.

The article title says "PS3" but I thought the PS3 version was fine with textures, it was the 360 version that had the texture issue.
Hayabusa 117  +   1459d ago
TyrannoTaurus  +   1459d ago
The 360 patch is live now. I installed my game and can confirm that the high res textures work perfectly when it is installed now. Thank God, the load times were killing me. They're cut in half now.
tee_bag242  +   1459d ago
If you read the article it says there is no difference anyway. The big fix was the save issues.
bozebo  +   1459d ago
Sucky .tk site. Buy a damn domain name and try to use decent, comparable screenshots next time :/

Waste of time. Does anyone else feel like this blog site is pretty useless?

The author has gone down almost every comment and disagreed lol. Nobody else would have in regards to how bad the site is.

I don't understand why you would compare texture resolutions from that far away. Especially considering the fix was for how the textures get updated (at different distances) so it's probably correct that it looks the same from that distance.
rexbolt  +   1458d ago
be nice if they had an update to make the game have good combat :/
rexbolt  +   1458d ago
oh so you guys think the combat is good? that it has fluid cool combos and great fight animations? hmmm then show me a vid to contradict my statement on the bad combat this game has
