Skyrim and Playstation Don’t Play Nice.
I noticed the other day while playing Skyrim on my PS3 that the game began to lag, framerates were terrible, and gameplay was almost impossible. I overlooked the problem, but it turns out that there is an issue between Skyrim and Playstation consoles. Once the gamesave data surpasses about 5 MB, the game stops cooperating. Players on other consoles have not reported this issue. This alone, however, makes Skyrim worth playing on anything but the Playstation. The only current fix is to save and restart the machine. Although X-boxers and PC gamers will be able to kick back and enjoy their game, us PS3-ers will have to wait for a patch.
