Save Skyrim on PS3 and break the game
It is rare that a game played offline would experience lag, but Bethesda has found a way to do it in Skyrim. Apparently on PS3 copies of the game, if your save file exceeds 5-6 mb on the PS3 hard drive, it slows the game to a crawl. This bug keeps you from interacting with NPCs or completing quests. Ex OPM UK, Editor Tim Clark has a experienced this himself and had this to say.
So it would appear that the issue stems from the size of a save file. A save file will continue to increase in size as a player spends more time in the world completing quests and growing as a character. The work around appears to be turning off the auto save feature, but I would think that would be worse. I can only imagine forgetting to manually save and losing hours of content. Bethesda tweets they are "continuing to work on an update for all platforms to address issues".
Never have I been so happy to have an Xbox 360 copy in the office. Also, don't forget to check out our review of Skyrim.

Yeah I tried blowing on the disc before. It never works =/
That has to be it, they have it down to a science...the way they make their product. From what I recall it's a relatively small team too (when it comes to video games). I, for one have the tolerance for the "Bethesda bugs" but I truly feel bad for those who don't.
thank Thor I buy this game for PC instead of PS3
Yea I remember those too...though if memory serves, those memory files got easily corrupted at random when it came to the N64. Ya try to play your game, ya turn on the N64 and boom, all your files are erased. Luckly I learned how to fix that by just taking the cartridges and blowing on it. Then all my files came back (thank gawd). These however...I dont think the same procedure works on disks. :/
Fallout, Skyrim...this is why I dont rly like games like these. The concept is great...but sometimes when ya find lag as bad as this in a single-player only game...ya cant help but feel mad.
So the 360 version and PS3 version both have different problems?
360 is messing up Arkham City saves, PS3 is messing up Skyrim saves.....I can't believe I'm actually starting to miss game cartridges with built in memory...
Goddamn, my save file is slowly reaching the 5MB mark. Guess no skyrim after I hit it until Bethesda fixes the bug. :I
Why did I see this coming.... FUCK YOU XBOX naw I'm kidding, but when I saw my save file go up I also noticed some lag they better sand a patch soon cause it hurts that just cause I have a shitty PC and I don't like Xbox games, my PS3 experience has to suffer? Oh well please patch soon :/
Thank goodness I haven't bought it yet
How does something like this escape testing!?
Oh damn! I was planning on getting this for PS3 this weekend! Bethesda better fix this problem soon or I shall be very disappointed. Or I could just get it on PC.........
After this kind of shit happening three times in three different ways (Oblivion, Fallout 3 and now Skyrim), I'm starting to think that Bethesda is doing this on purpose.
Either that, or they have this specific way of developing games that they will not deviate from, even if it means a shit ton of bugs...
Oh, this is perfect. Gotta love when the PS3 sucks up the field. Glad I have it on PC! The only real way to play Skyrim!
Oh Bethesda... again!?
