Yeah I picked it up after the Skyrim/PS3 disaster a few months back and just started really playing it about a week ago.

I'm having a lot of fun with it. So much to do in the game world.

Well worth the 20 bucks I spent on it.

Don't spend any money on Skyrim for PS3.

The game is unplayable after a certain amount of time playing. I got 75 hours into the game and it froze up becoming completely unplayable.

Apparently this is a common problem with Skyrim (and Fallout 3)on PS3 and Bethesda seems either unable or unwilling to fix the problem.

Lots of people were extremely pissed off.

I've had no such problems with Skyrim on the PS3, and played a fair ammount. I didn't ply so much Fallout though so don't know about that.
Most of the initial bugs for Skyrim seem to have been solved with updates, have you been updating via the PSN?

This lists a number of common bugs on multiple platforms;

This isn't a bug per se.

It has to do with the size of your game save file.

When it reaches a certain size the game locks up and freezes or crashes about every 30 seconds or so.

Read the comments below the article I've linked about the most recent patch:

Interesting, I hadn't come across it but I have noticed my ever massive game file. :/

I rented it so I was only out a few bucks. Thank God I didn't drop 60 bucks on it or I'd have been furious.

I was pretty pissed anyway after spending 70 plus hours on a game I couldn't finish.

I noticed in the catacombs last night that groups of mixed bad guys will attack each other if you injure one behind a group of others that move slower. Also, hit the one carrying the black powder barrel or detonate the crates of dynamite scattered in the mine when groups of bad guys are nearby quickly cuts down on their numbers setting the survivers after each other. It also wipes out many that take several hits to eliminate.

The Ninjas really slow you down as you have to hide behind cover to avoid their throwing stars and take them out at extreme range using the alternate fire on the Painkiller.

Skyrim on 360 seems to be stable. It's frozen up once or twice, but I've had the game for a month and no major complaints.

However if you have an older Xbox 360, I've heard there are pretty significant lag issues.

I have an older 360-at least its not the newest model, it's the one before that. I think it's frozen once, maybe twice, but I've gotten a lot of play out of it and it's pretty stable. The only lag is sometimes when I hit B to go to the items/map/magic/skills interface, but that's because it is autosaving.

Not now, although I might be able to sometime this weekend or later in the week. However, in no way do I consider myself a great player lol
