If you have acquired the PS3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you may already be suffering from serious lag issues which occur after about halfway into the game, or roughly a hundred hours of play time. As explained previously, the issues actually occur on all platforms but are more obvious with the PS3 version because of its limited amount of RAM; only 256 megabytes are available for game data on Sony's console. It's a very complex problem and that cannot be fixed as easily as one would wish, but Bethesda have said they will be able to resolve the issue in a later patch. In the meantime they have issued the following recommendations: Disabling automatic saves seems to help, especially with large saves Free up some space on your hard drive, make sure you have at least 2 gigabytes for caching Use the "wait" feature in the game for at least 30 consecutive days if you want the game to "forget" game elements such as item and character location and position, places you've visited and so forth. These tips were posted by Bethesda's Senior community manager over at their official forums.
