Lag and Long Loading Times For PS3 Skyrim

Apparently PS3 users have been reporting massive load times and really bad lag in their version of Skyrim. I have yet to take my XBOX 360’s Skyrim V-Card so I can’t say whether the lag is on the 360 version as well. There have been reports and youtube videos depicting the lag issues (below). Are you having lag issues dear reader? If so then comment below! I wanna hear about your experiences.

    So far, my 360 copy of Skyrim is smooth as silk. Better than Oblivion ran, and MUCH better than those videos. The only ‘lag’-esque issue I have is that the inventory and weapon selection shortcut pages often take 2 or so seconds to load before I can start selecting stuff, which I find rather odd.

    That last sentence is rather oddly worded, so let me describe it: I press B, and the inventory (compass-looking page) comes up perfectly. However, I often have to wait for a few seconds before I can start moving through it. Same goes for the weapon selection shortcut tab (pressing up or down). But this is an extremely minor issue, both relative to the PS3 issues and because the game is paused for both of these instances. Other than that, I’m having little to no issues with this game. Oh, and it’s freakin’ fantastic.

    Wow, mentally I was praising the load times on the 360 because Oblivion’s was kinda crappy. But man, this is painful on ps3 it looks like! Not as painful as Duke Nukem Forever’s loading times! LOL

    360 version has the exact same problem with the loading screen. got it yesterday, played it again today and loading screen just stays there.

    Takes about half an hour every time it goes to the loading screen.
    apparently on ps3, it’s a developer’s fault.
    if the save file goes above 6000 ish kb, the game starts to lag slightly, if it goes over by alot say like my 13mb file, it lags even more, and the loading times practically double…
