A customer says:
I am definitely getting this for the PS3, so hopefully all of the bugs, freezes, and crashes will be ironed out by that time... RIGHT, BETHESDA? Okay, good!

Yeah, no kidding. Hopefully no one will have to stand in a soup line to get their bugged copies of Legendary, eh?

I am conflicted now. I already have a regular copy of Skyrim......plus all the DLC at the discounted price for PS3 due to it not being available right away cause they couldn't get it to work right the first time.

But I hate having to download those files every time I want to play them. And for all I know, Sony will someday put a limit on how many times you can re-download DLC to one's console before you have to buy it again?

On the other hand, this is Bethesda and they are notorious for glitchy games. They still haven't nor will they ever fix the vampire cure glitche in Oblivion for the GOTY edition so who is to say what glitches will come for this one and will they take the time to fix them if they do come?

A customer says:
I understand your situation, but unfortunately for me I do not yet have Skyrim for the PS3, which is why I am planning on getting this version. The truth is, I love Fallout and Elder Scrolls so much it doesn't really matter to me a whole lot whether the games have unfixed bugs. But what I do know is that if you get Bethesda games on a console you don't have any DRM to deal with. I have the standard edition of Skyrim and New Vegas on my PC, and I can't stand the crappy Steam service. The Steam servers are complete BS, and I am not even kidding you man! When I download anything in Steam the download starts and stops and takes freakin' forever, but when I download anything in Origin or Uplay the download is consistent; just proves how crappy Steam is.

I tend to avoid standard editions of games for the PS3 when I can get the 'complete' editions because (1) My PS3 is not connected to the internet to download patches and DLC content. (2) Sometimes the most recent patches are applied to the game when you play the GotY, complete, and ultimate editions. (3) I would never want to get my PS3 banned for some apparent reason (not that I play multiplayer in anything, but I am just saying).

See, I only got the standard edition because I really wanted to play Skyrim. And I was right to get it because even without the DLC it is a fantastic game on its own with so much to do that they could have left it well enough alone and I would have been happy (although they should have made an expansion about the Thalmor but that is a separate issue altogether). Do you have wireless internet? Cause the PS3 does pick up WiFi signals (that is how mine is set up).

You do know you can download patches and updates off the PS3/PSN website and just place it on a flash drive and then upload it to your console. I know that seems an a**-backwards method of doing things but if it works I say go with it.

I might get this anyway just because like with the Oblivion GOTY edition there might be a glitch that can be fixed if you still have an original copy because the reason I couldn't use the vampire cure was because The Shivering Isles expansion messed with the game so that you couldn't give the final item needed for the cure. The only way to get around this was to have an original copy (no DLC/Expansions added) and give the item that way. Downside is, if you are already in areas that touch on TSI DLC then your save file is screwed up.

So I might get this if for no other reason than to make sure I have something that might need me to use my original copy. Plus then I won't have to worry about using up all my HDD space cause I still have my Fat 40GB Brick version cause I'm too cheap to go and by a newer better and bigger HDD spaced one. I mean if I'm investing this much in just games alone why not pay the extra bit for a newer version of the console? Too late these days since PS4 is coming out (was it late this year they said that was coming out? Either way I'm getting that so I'm saving up for that and the games that are coming for it.)

A customer says:
Hmm, never thought about downloading updates from the internet. I will have to try that out sometime (if it's legal, lol).

I see what you mean, but Shivering Isles is too good to pass up, in my opinion.

I am actually a new PS3 player and I am not even sure whether or not I am going to get the PS4. I waited too long to get the PS3, but I love it to death, so I guess that is what matters. See, some games that you can get on the PS3 may never be available on the PS4, which is one of the reasons why I am not getting a PS4.

Aaron Plettl says:
It's legal. If you go to the PSN site it will have somewhere on their the current listing of updates for PS3, PSP and I'm sure Vita now. They allow you to download the update to a memory stick/flash drive so you can then stick it into your PS3 and install the update/patch at least for the console itself. I don't know if they do the same for games too or if that is a separate scenario altogether, never had reason to find out I'm afraid. But go poking around the PSN website whenever you get a chance.

Well your console has backwards compatibility, which is one reason.

Really, if one of your main reasons for getting this is to avoid having to download the DLC over and over, why not drop another $20 on a 1TB hard drive? HGST Travelstar 2.5-Inch 1TB 7200RPM SATA II 32MB Cache Internal Hard Drive

I held off on my purchase of Skyrim because of all the bugs and issues everyone was reporting. I'm not on the PSN, nor will I be anytime soon, so I would not have been able to download any patches. Besides, from everything I've read, a lot of the patches did no good anyway. So I have waited and waited SO patiently for Skyrim's GOTY edition, which, if history serves, was coming eventually...in hopes that a GOTY edition ( or "Legendary" as they call it ) would have most of the issues fixed, PLUS include a lot of DLC that I never would have gotten. So now I see that on June 4th, my patient wait will be over and HOPEFULLY I'll have a great experience with few problems.

Now I can finally see what everyone has been talking about for about 2 years now lol.

I can't wait for June 4th! I've waited and waited 2 years cause I knew this Edition was coming. Finally I can buy the game with all DLC packs! I CAN'T WAIT to play Skyrim!!!

A customer says:
There are so many people that have written reviews about how bad New Vegas runs on the PS3 (including the Ultimate Edition). I have the Ultimate Edition and have had zero to no problems with it lagging, freezing, or crashing. Every now and then in a great while the game pauses for literally one second, but I have not experienced what these other people claim have happened to them. Maybe the game runs better on the newer consoles? I know they try and update the hardware in each new system (which would make sense because I have the latest slim version).

A customer says:
I am in your boat as well, I did not get the standard edition for my PS3. I am really looking forward to this and I can't wait for it to release. I will most likely pre-order it a few days before it releases.

In reply to an earlier post on May 17, 2013, 1:54:56 PM PDT
It probably has to do with individuals knowing/not knowing how to do basic maintenance, i.e. file system restore and database rebuild. Games like these are very HDD intensive (along with The Walking Dead)

A customer says:
Yes, this may be another factor as well.

A customer says:
I did not read the product description as carefully as I should have. They are adding mounted combat to this edition of the game. I know many people were upset about this feature not being included in the game, so that is a plus. If they don't move the release date on us like they do with everything it seems, we are good to go in a little less than 1.5 weeks. I can't wait...

A customer says:
I placed the pre-order today, so I am good to go. I am so glad I waited for this; dropping my pre-order for BioShock Infinite and using the $60 on this was a clever decision. Not too much longer people!....
