After informing you yesterday about the pesky framerate lag problem associated with the PS3 version of Skyrim being linked to Fallout: New Vegas, we now have further information from Bethesda to share with you in relation to the issues.
The developer has once again spoke about the problems that PS3 users have been facing, and confirmed that another patch update was on the way for all platforms of the game. According to Bethesda though, the framerate stuttering is only affecting a select group of users and they have confirmed that a fix will not be available in the next patch update, which will be brought to version 1.3.

Bethesda has released a new statement on their blog about the problems, and here is the key information which references the game save problems:
”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.”
And confirmation that the problems will not be fixed up by the time the next patch update releases:
”These fixes are not in the current 1.3 update that is in final testing, but will be in future ones.”
As you can imagine, there’s no indication on when this new patch will be available, but we’re interested to see what else they are planning to fix since the lag and framerate problems are obviously the biggest issue for PS3 owners right now. Don’t forget that the Creation Kit is on the way for PC users in January, so perhaps patch 1.3 will prepare the game for some of these changes.
If you are still having big problems with the PS3 version of the game, let us know your thoughts on Bethesda choosing not to address this specific issue in the next patch update.
