Skyrim Update Will Not Fix PS3 Save Bug, For Now

While the dispute between the Fallout dev and Bethesda continue over the save issue, Eurogamer has the take down on the next Skyrim patch to come out later this week.

From Eurogamer:

Bethesda has refuted allegations made by a senior Fallout: New Vegas developer about the Skyrim PS3 game save problem.

The PS3 lag problem worsens the more you play Skyrim; the larger the game save file, the choppier the game’s performance. Patch 1.2 was supposed to fix this, but didn’t. Patch 1.2 also broke resistances and made dragons fly backwards.

An incremental Skyrim fix to rectify the problems of 1.2 is supposed to arrive this week.

But a solution to the PS3 save problem won’t be ready for Skyrim patch 1.3, Bethesda recently announced. (Does this vindicate Sawyer’s prediction that a quick fix isn’t possible?)

The best advice to give right now is to “turn off ” auto saves,  from senior community manager Matt Grandstaff.

“Wait for time to pass,” Grandstaff concluded. “Many things are running in the world depending on what quests you’ve done or places you have visited. Using Wait or Rest options, passing time will clear up some of these. It depends how long you wait, it may take up to 30 days for some items. Saving, resetting, and loading after this will have the largest effect.”
