    With Skyrim releasing in less than a week, players who will pick the game up this Friday can expect to download a day one patch as soon as they play.
    Skyrim is big and it’s nearly impossible for the game to be free of glitches. Ever since I got the game over a week ago, there are some glitches that are in the game and I’m sure that the patch that is now available will fix some of them.

    I wonder what the glitches are? A week ago and it wasn't fix? I guess the time to put out the game bug free will be too long...

    most likely standard bugs
    item graphics, quest bugs, model twinges, ridiculous shop prices, typo's, world holes

    You'll be hard-pressed to find any game this big with no bugs.

    I hate it when I pay for a game that's un-complete.
    I mean, they were making this game for about 5 years, and they couldn't fix-out all of the glitches? I thought fixing all of the graphic bugs are a first priority.

    It's people like you that make me hate people on the internet.

    Do you understand how much time and effort it takes making a video game?
    The last thing they do is bug fixes, No game comes bug free, and something like this of mass scale isnt meant to be perfect.
    Bugs happen after the game is released, sometimes QA misses things. In a case like this, they knew the game had bugs, and was waiting for the launch to fix it, to give them the most time.

    If you think any video game should come bug free.. well.. maybe you should stop playing video games, and start making them.

    well bug cleaning up is horrible

    how they meant to find them all unless people play it, and they cant get a handfull of people to test every sqaure on the map or try everything

    long as a game isnt broken by a bug its fine

    All the info I've seen for this patch is to fix some quest progression and some minor stability.

    There has been some reported bugs like people stuck inside walls but I can't find/remember most of it all.

    some game get a day one patch, not a big deal

    the game need to get thought the finale steps (like the disc pressing, QA, and other steps), before a set date so, it can be ready to get to the everyone by the release date

    and they, (the game tester) still work on finding bugs
    after that, and if bugs are found after the finale code is done, , you get a day one patch

    This shouldn't be surprising. It's not simply because it's a large game (although I'll admit that's part of it), but because it's a Bethesda game. Look at the lists of bugs that still haven't been patched in Morrowind, Oblivion, or even Fallout 3 and you'll get an idea, and this is after a few rather large patches each. Paying for a Bethesda game at launch is basically paying your way into an open beta and hoping the final version actually makes it to market sometime soon.

    Good to see they're actually getting an early start on patching it; they'll have given up by the time the GotY edition hits the market next fall anyways, so we've only got a year or so of guaranteed work left from the dev team.

    I have seen other games in the past with day one patches also

    I'm not sure why the snide comment of 'those with the PC copy can't play it yet'

    the game hasn't been released yet. So if you have a copy, it's because a retailer broke the street date when they weren't supposed to. Blame them.

    Yeah lots of games have day one patches these days even on the console side. Not really surprising in the least.

    Hope my copy comes early, I ordered from very.co.uk as you don't have to pay for 12 months. Usually they come a day or two early.

    It's news so people want to play it, knows about.
    Not everyone has an internet connection 100% of the time on their console/PC, I know I never connect my PS3 to the internet when playing offline games and with a game like Skyrim, you kinda need this patch.

    TL;DR bitch please it's still news

    Gamesradar pointed this out, but it's worth repeating: Skyrim v1.1 will be released 11/11/11.

    Bethesda seems to have a thing for numbers.
