PS3 Crashing Issues

Post  Goobs on Wed Feb 15, 2012 5:42 am

Since I have updated to the new Skyrim patch I seem to be getting frequent crashes. Before the update, the crashes used to be few and far between and only after about thre to four hours continuos gameplay.

It seem like they have sorted the lag problem which became frustrating after this length of gameplay, but I now get crashes more often than not. This means that I constantly worrying about autos aves and saving after small periods of time just in case.

Anyone else struggling with this?

i have noticed a decrease in lag but there are still issues. Haven't had any real crashes, other than one... just froze up and had to restart. I'd say overall the patch helped me. Just biding my time till my PC gets delivered so I can welcome a new slew of issues.

PS3 lag

I've repeatedly noticed a lag in the game play after playing a few consecutive hours, but crashing has not been a problem.

Have you tried creating a manual save (not auto save from resting or fast travel) and then restarting the Ps3 and loading from said manual save?
that was actually instructed by Bethesda, i actually created one and then deleted all the other saves and have been mainly problem free since then.
hope that helps!!

I've had Skyrim on the PS3 since Christmas and had no issues at all (lag or otherwise and my save file is 7k+) Up until the new patch since the last update the game has just crashed/ frozen 3 times. Most annoyingly once when I was just pausing to save after not saving for a while. Luckily on all 3 counts the nearest auto save wasn't that far off and they were minor inconveniences, just hoping it doesn't happen after something major.

well that sucks.

you could try reinstalling Skyrim (just delete game data not saves) and see if it helps?
about 20 mins work but may be worth it considering how much time we put into this game!

I actually went out and bought the PC version of Skyrim because of this. I set auto saves to a minimum and deleted them before each time I played. The game would be ok for a while and then it would crash. I've abandoned the PS3 version altogether as a result. It's really disappointing that Bethesda released a game on a console that couldn't handle it.

Total shame that you have left the console version. I hope you have more fun playing the game on PC and enjoy the game as it supposed to be. (now you can mod it too lol)

good luck!

It was a shame, especially since I had put 60+ hours into my character. I was quite angry, but I'm really enjoying playing on the computer so it worked out well. Smile
