I've had auto saved on for all my play though before and after the patch. Didn't know I was supposed to turn them off.

its worth turning off just because it decreases load times. i just use the autosave every15 minute option.

Digital Foundry VS Bethesda: PS3 Skyrim is not shit anymore, just a slight odor left.

So this kind of proves they could have fixed Fallout New Vegas on PS3 if they cared enough to put the time in to try to fix it.

Wow. Just saw the Digital Foundry video. It almost looks silky smooth now, capped at 30fps. Much better. Now I can finally look at buying this sometime in the future.

And it only took 4 months since launch to fix it! Yay for having to hit that stupid date!

Digital Foundry said that there was no change in visuals at all.

Not necessarily, you'll notice the camera is in a different position by quite a bit. The walkway texture may just be worse there no matter the version, or given how blurry the rest of that frame is, there's more compression artifacts in the window that's moving more.

Just started the game yesterday.. After three months waiting, finally... But damn this game is stuttering the first 20 or so minutes.. I cannot even start to imagine how bad stuff can get in this game when this is considered normal. I guess that once the game grows on me, then I will be able to see past the fuckugly shadows and other stuff that is making me laugh.

Software development takes some time bro, a joke of a company would be one that didnt fix it. Beth just made a mistake and has now corrected. Given Skyrim is a goty winner and one of the largest ever buys them some points.

Huh? How does it being game of the year buy them any excuse from releasing an unfinished version of the game that rendered it near unplayable for almost everyone using that platform? It's inexcusable.

They also won Studio of the Year too... Unfitting for a studio that releases a completely broken and unplayable version of their game and denies problems until it became prominent.

Ive been playing the 360 version because of the bug and now going back to ps3 version I must say I like the look of the ps3 version better. The 360 version has jarringly noticeable jaggies and dithered transparency draw in. The ps3 version doesn't.

Yes they released a broken game, but they fixed it, which is the least they can do, but when you think about it, they did this many times and they did jack shit.

Evolution!

I can actually open my copy of the game now and start playing. Bought it and Saints Row the same day and sunk all my time into Saints Row and refused to open it until it was fixed. Debated taking it back a few times but now can finally enjoy it.

I'm sort of pissed the game is finally fixed after I got the majority of my mileage out of it experiencing constant freezes, poor framerate, etc. I'll return to it later, of course, but I wish my introduction to the game wasn't so negative (I was hit pretty hard by the save file size bug).

Let's see whether the DLC is playable. I played through the entire Fallout 3 with the expansions on the PS3 and it was a disaster.

I'm waiting for GOTY before I play any of the DLC - I know it won't be playable on release.

3 months from launch
2 months from that post

I think that's just a result of when I took the screen cap. The shadows look different too because the three portions of the screen aren't completely in synch due to the framerate differences. They all looked identical in the video, aside from the huge framerate improvement in the right third.

So this is how glitch fixing works with games. Some glitches are harder to fix then others, especially when the hardware they are working with has less memory then other systems. Memory issues are not simple fixes.
