Really is the guy that wrote this being serious. Start a new save file and then restart your PS3. Click on that story guys and tell me what you guys think. Wife played the game all day with no problems but you know how it gos. Alot of quest are still messed up.

The only thing I've noticed since the patch is that load times seem to be longer, lag isn't completely gone but is MUCH better. I don't know about all the quests yet but the Blades Dragonslayer quests still have the unfortunate tendency to make your recruits stay at a word wall of an already defeated dragon with no way of making them return. But I don't know about any other quests myself.

Bethesda did recommend making a new manual save file and then waiting 73 in game hours after DL'ing the patch to fix any issues. This recommendation apparently resets the scripts.

I didn't even start a new save file and I haven't seen any huge problems since the patch. A little lag a couple times since but nothing on the level of what it was pre-patch.

I only tried it out for 20 minutes the other day and my game was unplayable after 5 minutes before the patch, Now I experienced no lag in that 20 mins. However the quest to get the house in windhelm is still broken, I still can't get the quest to trigger. Glad Bethesda finally made some grounds now tell them to go fix Fallout NV and Fallout 3 for the PS3 because they are still broken and they should know how to fix them after Skyrim.

How could you get to buying a house in any city in just 25 mins of play?

What??? Dude are you stupid? I have a 200 hour save. All I had to do was fast travel and check.

So $40k down the drain?

My save file is around 200 hours as well. Since the update lag has decreased massively. With that said though, yesterday I played for 16 hours straight (Lame I know), but an hour before I stopped the lag returned. I had major frame rate issues throughout that last hour yesterday. They obviously didn't completely fix it.

yea Rgb same here, i was playing for like around 3 hours also like the article says and i was on the quest of finding he staff of magnus and later in it i started having massive lag when i would fight, idk if it will return but i hope not or hopefully bethesda releases a permanent fix for it soon ...

I already bought it on PC, it looks amazing modded on my Alienware. Glad I didn't buy it for my PS3.
