Bethesda 'reaching out' to PS3 Skyrim owners still having issues

Developer issues new statement over troubled PS3 version

Bethesda has spoke out again on the ongoing issues with the PS3 version of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Despite a recent update, it appears that stuttering issues, among other glitches mentioned by the developer below, still plague the PS3 version of the epic RPG.

Bethesda says it has been 'reaching out' to a number of PS3 users with save files that have been experiencing issues.

Here's the full statement:

"While the 1.2 update fixed the long-term play issues for most PS3 users, we are aware that is not the case for some. We've been reaching out to a number of those users to collect save games, so we can take a look at their specific issues. Right now we know it's not one thing, but a combination of smaller ones that some folks are seeing, but others are not. Some seem to be the PS3 autosaving in the background (you can turn that off), some may be SPU AI updates, and some may relate to dynamic system memory allocation.

"These fixes are not in the current 1.3 update that is in final testing, but will be in future ones. We understand how frustrating it can be when your game is having issues, and we thank all of you for your continued feedback and patience. Rest assured we take your gameplay experience seriously and will continue working on this until it's resolved."

If you haven't already, look at the Skyrim guide.
