Skyrim 1.4 patch: PS3 certification starts

In Entertainment writes: Now we know the PC beta is on steam you can count on the same update entering console certification. The last PC patch, v1.3, hit steam in beta form back on December 7 and then made its way to PS3 on December 15, which is around one week later after certification.
The next Skyrim patch for PS3 owners is one of the most important yet, and this is thanks to a promise for frame rate issues to be fixed once and for all. PS3 owners should keep an eye on early next week for the 1.4 patch to land on their console

Just as it did with the last patch, v1.4 has now entered certification for the PS3 so I cannot wait until next week when it hits both the PS3 and Xbox 360.

If this doesn't work.... I'm selling my PS3 version and buying the 360 version (I don't game on the PC).

Bioshocking1642d ago

Lets wait till patch 1.5 comes out to fix the new problems 1.4 will make..

*sigh*

Playing Skyrim on PS3 might have been the most frustrating 140 hours I have ever put in a game

Wondering how they gonna tackle framerate issues... draw distance set to minimum :P

thedude441643d ago

i think there just going to leave it the way it is, and patch it why would they change anything?

Mister_G1643d ago

They'll tackle it be fixing whatever technical issue is causing the stalls.

So that's going to be either memory management or I/O management (since turning off auto-saved worked as a temporary measure). Maybe both things :)

Mister_G1643d ago

Not getting this game until these issues are fixed.

christheredhead1643d ago

Well truthfully, if you are playing on ps3 the issues will never be fully fixed. Fallout 3, fallout new vegas and oblivion still have major and minor issues. So, don't necessarily expect for it to be "fixed" in that sense. You'll just have to enjoy it for what it is.

Fallout 3 isnt broken, only the dlc is hit and miss. New Vegas is near flawless now.

@NukaCola

I'm not saying that any of those games are broken, cause they're not. They still have issues that definitely hinder the experience. Personally, I don't think I could recommend someone to play any of those games on the ps3 knowing you'll never get the full experience without problems.

Although, I have yet to go back to NV. That game was a total mess for me and was sold quickly after.

danswayuk1643d ago

The game is well worth buying, we've spent over 300 hours in Skyrim on the PS3 and the frame rate issues are there but not as bad as some people state, although it is different for each user.

theeg1643d ago (Edited 1643d ago )

it lags and has a very poor framerate in spots on the 360 too, my little brother got for xbox and he says it runs terrible in some spots, i know its not as bad as ps3 but it's bad from what he says.

todd howard said (in a very veiled way, trying to keep it politically correct) Skyrim was intended for next gen consoles. I imagine that they (next gen consoles) were taking so long to come out and they had finished the pc version so it was basically no choice but to try to downgrade the visuals drastically and force it onto ps3 and 360, thats why it only runs well on pc. They should have dropped the resolution of the console versions even lower, something like modern warfares 1024x600 or resistance 3's 960x680.

The issue is the PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware is very old, and that's why the next-gen is so close although the game is still amazing on consoles and the issues are not good, but a fix is on the way.
