Lag Issues Affecting Some Skyrim PS3 owners

Posted By | On 11th, Nov. 2011

Skyrim is out and on all the platforms out there. We can say that the PC version is the most stable version out of the three platforms, but there is one issue on the PS3 that brings down all the advantages it has – Better textures, slightly better graphics than the Xbox 360 version and that issue is – lag.

Lag or low frame rate drops can happen any time when you’re playing the PS3 version. Especially if you are in a large city, the framerate can fall a lot. What can you do in these cases? Mostly nothing because low framerate can ruin your experience.

We have a few complaints already about this and we think it’s about time Bethesda noticed it and patched the PS3 version and all other versions for their respective problems. Here’s one complaint.

I am playing skyrim on PS3, but after a while I noticed everytime i travel to a city it has a really long loading screen, and as if that weren’t bad enough, the framerate drops like a M*therF*ckr when you start moving in the city. GREAT PORT BETHESDA!!!”

You can check out his proof below.

We’ve also come to know that the loading times on the PS3 version is enormous. We would like our dear readers to tell us in the comments section as to what issues they’re facing with the PS3 version. The graphics on the PS3 version are fantastic but this and freezes are the only issues affecting it right now.

Okay so I got skyrim one say early from game.co.UK and I got it on ps3. But it seems to lag a lot… Has bethseda outdone there selves becuase the graphics and gd are beautiful but I think its to much for the consoles.

Here’s another video that shows the low framerate drops.

Tell us what you think, are you affected by this issue as well? We would love to know.
