    Skyrim on PS3: Took an arrow to the knee

    For the past few of months, there have been widespread reports of horrendous lag and framerate drops with the PS3 version of Skyrim. After about 60 hours and a save file over 6 megabytes in size, the game degenerates into an almost unplayable state. The game runs infinitely better on PC and Xbox 360. Or so the story goes…
