The title is everything really -- is this game playable on PS3 yet? A friend of mine played it on PS3 for 100+ hours and experienced a lot of the stuttering and other annoying bugs, so I'm just wondering if I get it (even with the new patches) will it still suck? It looked borderline unplayable from what I saw .... I'm hoping it's better. Not perfect is fine, but better than it was is all I need to hear.
Is this playable on PS3 yet?
I don't understand what people are talking about. In my own experience i've played it on the PS3 from day one and it's fine. Aside from one or two quest bugs and or other normal sandbox game jank, i've never experienced this stuttering problem. Also, that frame rate issue with large save files was officially fixed in the last patch on consoles if thats what this is about. Maybe it's an issue with launch PS3 hardware or something. I have a 4th gen PS3 circa 2009. Maybe 360 would have the same issues but all the launch 360's already red ringed.
I had plenty freezing and crashing prior to 1.4, sometimes it crashed 3 times in as many hours, but after downloading 1.4 I have not had it crash on me once (though I have likely cursed myself here!), so overall it has been a better experience. I never really got crazy fps drops like others say bar Whiterun and Riften, but even those two cities are much smoother now. The only thing I have noticed is momentary frame rate drops that last for half a second or so but then the frame ups quickly back up to normal. I have 100 hours, level 38. Overall, that 1.4 worked wonders for my game.
