Skyrim PS3 Update 1.4 Soon

January 20, 2012 -

While Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim continues to be popular, owners of the PS3 version still have plenty of complaints about the game's lack of memory optimization. Luckily developer Bethesda is still trying to work out the kinks and this week has promised a new update to deal with the remaining issues.

Bethesda's Skyrim 1.4 update promises "long term play optimizations for memory and performance (PS3)," among a handful of other smaller tweaks and fixes. Bethesda said on its blog recently that they are "hoping to finalize this next week, and submit it to the console manufacturers for certification, as well as release on PC."

The PS3 update is meant to fix the game-crippling lag some PS3 users are experiencing after playing the game for 35 hours or more. Other fixes include a fix for "ash piles not cleaning up properly," and a number of quest-related tweaks and fixes.

The PC patch will follow shortly thereafter. Bethesda also said that the Creation Kit is "on track for a public release near the end of the month."

This bodes well. I should be hitting 50 with my SWTOR character so once I complete that I can get back to Skyrim after they patch it.

Sad thing is this bug was in New Vegas as well but seeing New Vegas was not as insanely popular no one is rushing to release a patch for that game

Will they patch it to actually support 1080i like the box says it does?  My roommate is rocking an old CRT "HD"TV, only does 480i/p and 1080i.  The game box says it supports 1080i, but that's horseshit.  It only runs at 720p or below, so it goes to 480p on my roommate's screen, and the top and bottom of the screen (you know, the places where virtually every bit of vital information is displayed) get cut off.  Changing the widescreen settings on the PS3 does not have much of an effect.  True, my roommate should probably replace that POS, but he can't afford to at the moment, and again, the back of the box specifically says 1080i is supported.
