Despite the recent 1.2 patch, issues still continue and Bethesda is collecting save files from gamers who are experiencing the problem so it can investigate the saves more closely. The full statement reads:
“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. Some seem to be the PS3 autosaving in the background (you can turn that off), some may be SPU AI updates, and some may relate to dynamic system memory allocation.
“These fixes are not in the current 1.3 update that is in final testing, but will be in future ones. We understand how frustrating it can be when your game is having issues, and we thank all of you for your continued feedback and patience. Rest assured we take your gameplay experience seriously and will continue working on this until it’s resolved.”
EGM’s TAKE: The longer this issue continues the more frustrated players are going to get, and soon a simple apology won’t be enough. The most important thing at this point is to keep players informed and get some answers out as soon as possible.
