The launch of the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim patch 1.05 happened earlier today and unfortunately, it includes a giant bug that has affected a large amount of players on the PS3.
The patch is actually 1.50, not 1.05 as stated in the description.
Lol, of course... I had the PS3 version, already traded it in a while back because of stuff like this. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the game, but I figure I'll get it again for PS3 when/if they ever get it working right. Until then, I'll pick up the PC version when it's on sale on Steam or something.
Ahh I miss the days when blowing the cartridges magically fixes bugs!
Now a days to fix it, instead of the cartridge its the devs you have to... And even then, you still have to wait a while to get it fixed.
Patch 1.50? THEY PATCHED THE GAME FIFTY TIMES? WTH BETHESDA WITH YOUR CRAPPY PROGRAMING (obviously a typo for 1.05, but I vowed never to buy another Bethesda game after Skyrim... overrated POS on PS3)
I'm with you on the boycott. I'm just not going to go through that again. We pay good money for these games and we deserve a working product, any company that doesn't see that way won't get my business. It's too bad, I really liked Skyrim.
Is it really Bethesdas problem? i mean i haven't found a single game breaking bug on 360 or PC, well maybe on 360, i couldn't use mods but i fix it by buying the PC version.... anyways is it really Bethesdas fault? everyone knows the PS3 is not the easiest console to work with, o FYI the PS3 version of Skyrim is the lowest in metascore so that makes it "Underrated".
@tr10wn Well that is because you played the PC and 360 versions. Not the PS3 version, and yes it is Bethesda's fault because they intentionally sold PS3 owners a unfinished product. http://ps3.ign.com/articles... They just dismissed it as a small percentage, but almost everyone at launch had these problems. Im not saying Skyrim is a bad game, its just that I am mad because I got cheated out of a good game. I payed the same price as you for Skyrim yes? Shouldn't I get the same game as you? Your not paying more than me, and Im not paying less than you. Why didn't we get the same experience as you? Why didn't Bethesda just say "we are having troubles with the PS3 version and it will launch a bit later?" Never has a game pissed me off as much as Skyrim, because of all the tomfoolery and deception Bethesda was delivering to us, selling us a broken product. And a 92 for this: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Truth is, if you put the time and effort into it, you can achieve it. Look at platinumgames and Rockstar. After screwing up GTA4 and Bayonetta, they learned from their mistakes and made great games for both consoles in the form of Vanquish and RDR... So why doesn't Bethesda learn like they did? Fallout 3 was inferior compared to the 360 and PC versions. Especially odd, because 360 and PS3 are almost even. Truth is, Bethesda got their GOTY's they got my money... they honestly did not care enough for the PS3 version and obviously put more time and effort into the 360 one. WHY DO YOU THINK THEY REFUSED TO SEND PS3 COPIES OF THE GAME FOR REVIEW? They only sent XBOX and PC And somehow the PS3 version gets 92... with only 2 of those reviewers probably recieved a PS3 copy, and one of them was Skyrims lowest score. The PSMUK and US were the only ones who got PS3 copies. Bethesda did not care for the PS3 version its extremely obvious... Seeing all these people complain about an ending in ME3... rather than going up and arms for the lies Bethesda told us is disheartening. I bought the same game as you.... but here is the difference. You got Skyrim... a legitimate GOTY contendor I got a POS.... you see why I am mad?
@Tr10wn Are you kidding me? You're blaming the Ps3's architecture? Because the last I checked, 99.9% of developers manage to not add bugs like the game FREEZING EVERY TIME YOU TOUCH WATER in a PATCH. It is ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY Bethesda's problem!
www.bbb.org If you bought this game on ps3, you were robbed.
so, I guess I'll pass on this new update. "If it ain't broke........"
I'm not surprised Bethesda can't produce games with out bugs/glitches
Even when they try to fix those bugs/glitches FIVE TIMES NOW. Good god, at some point, you'd think they'd try to hire more efficient people at this. Not saying it's an easy thing to do at all with a game this size, but they need some more talent in that department.
With all the money they made on Skyrim that is the LEAST they can do. Anything less and their just being greedy little pigs.
Even modders can't deal with that pressure and they are not getting paid, is not easy as people see it, i been around skyrim nexus some time now and i seen like 4 modders literally quitting modding because they can't find the solution to a bug, most recently Alexandrox, so i can assume Bethesda is having the same hard time with the PS3 version.
God dammit. Delete the game data, re-install the game, re-patch the game - problem fixed.
It's still a problem. Which shouldn't be there. Plus, it's been said (on Beth forums) that it crashes even after deleting it.
The user shouldn't have to jump through hoops to get the game working.
This does not work. my friends and i all tried it.
I feel bad for PS3 players.They always get the worse version of Bethesda games
You mean dynamic open world games?? True. Very true.
They get the worst version of most multiplats as well This is because Sony made their System difficult to program for to "challenge" developers
ME2 and Oblivion looked better on ps3 due coming out later, also final fantasy 13 and 13-2 are better on ps3 in every area, your trolling . They are plenty of multiplatform games that look better on ps3. Your argument went out years ago along with "ps3 has no games".
"You mean dynamic open world games??" All Assassin's Creed games, GTA games, Red Dead Redemption, and pretty much any other Open World game says hi.
@DragonKnight LA NOIRE says its possible to make a great PS3 game that's open world
La noire/AC games/Batman games/prototype/Saints raw 3rd/infamous1-2/FF13-13:2... etc run very good on ps3 and most of them even look better on ps3 you can shut your mouth now
forget to say fallout NV was a tie in gfx and ps3 win the PERFORMANCE and that was a Bethesda game Lens of truth H2H : "the PlayStation 3 version sported sharper textures and a superior lighting system, while the Xbox 360 incarnation had 4xAA and a further draw distance resulting in a tie." "PlayStation 3 win: The PlayStation 3 version out performed the Xbox 360 version by having less screen tearing during our capture session. Although the Xbox 360 version only had one percent more screen tearing, the PlayStation 3 version had zero." http://www.lensoftruth.com/... so how the hell this is ps3 fault again ??? you keep owning your self every time keep doing it .. troll
I traded my copy in AGES ago, i played the hell out of it, got the platinum trophy, played a "little" more, didnt really hav any problems, and i did all that without ANY patches, i dont get it Im now sluggin my way through the dlc for Fallout Vegas, stone me its hard, the frame rate is awful at times, and i mean AWFUL, and that game has been out longer
I only had problems during the civil war quests, to the point of the game being like a slide-show. Waiting for a few days (in-game) and saving/reloading seemed to help, but as soon as I finished those quests the game ran quite well. Sucks that I had to go through that but the game is so amazing and huge I can make an exception.
Shows the truth of how good Bethesda is at developing games.(Not very)
Not just Bethesda games, but sadly many mutliplatform games. That probably why Sony is rumor to go with AMD for easy development on PS4.
Sucks that the game is still so broken on the PS3. Everyone should get the chance to play this gem. Hopefully next generation the PS4 will be easier to work with and have similar architecture to the Xbox 720 so both consoles can get equal 3rd party games.
Patches that even break the game further. Sad.
Awww come onnnnnnnn!!!!! I was just getting used to and doing fine with 1.04! Now this! Starting to flashback to Uncharted 2 multiplayer the more they updated the more worse it got!! -_-
Damn. PS3vahkins cannot catch a break! I just feel bad for you guys...
Color me shock the Bethesda released a broken game and releases five patch that breaks more then it fixes.
Lazy lazy delevopment laid to these issues nothing else.
Playing on ps3 and have no problems whatsoever with water or whatever after this patch. Maybe it's because I started playing on 1.04 patch, but I'm 50 hours in and I don't see how the ps3 version is so "broken" as many claim. Quite the opposite, it's been a really smooth 50 hours so far for the most part. *shrug*
ahh nothings better than glitching after new patches are released -______- 4shame
PS3 Skyrim can't catch a break it seems.
The patch is 1.05.... where'd they get 1.50 from?
I'll vouch as well. Mine froze this morning as soon as entered the transition from above water to underwater. But, they were technically right. They said there's a new underwater transition, and there is. A game freeze!
Oh Cool ....... I think ......... another update ....... Hmmmmmm perhaps this is the one we should have had all along ......... NOPE .......... 3 solid freezes in a row . GRRRRRR
