Has anyone noticed this on the PS3 version?

I recently stuck Skyrim back in to play again after a break of a few months. I'd already completed the main quest line so I just wanted to do some exploring, etc. I was having fun running around after the undead, as you do, and fell through a trap on the floor into water. Where, I came across an annoying glitch/bug that really sucks, whenever I go into any kind of water the game freezes up, as well as my PS3. This has happened on numerous occasions. Has anyone else come across this at all?

Delete your game data (not save data) and start up Skyrim again.

@MethodMan008: I forget about doing that. I'm stupid. Thanks for jogging my brain into action. Going to go drink a coffee.

Yeah the PS3 1.4 or 1.5 patch glitched out the water and made the game crash. I think they fixed it.

Yep @MethodMan008 instructions are correct. And it was the 1.5 patch specifically. Shame because otherwise 1.5 has me back in Skyrim with two new characters and playing again.

I had heard about this, but didn't come across it myself.
