Downloaded update 1.8 and downloaded Dragonborn yesterday.
First thing I notice when I go to the load game screen is the smoke/cloud/fog goes from what is usually acceptable to being a harsh fuzzy static. 1 second normal to hot mess
It looks like a swarm of pixelated bees.
Ok, it's hiccup i tell myself and load my game.
My save is outside Whiterun which isn't that bad till look up at the partially cloudy sky.
Everything is horribly fuzzy, the draw distance has shortened and the aurora look like an embossed mess.
The shading has gone from acceptable to fuzzy static
Is everyone's game like this or is it just mine?

Yikes, sounds bad although, let's face it, not rare in Skyrim. I haven't purchased the DLC on PSN yet. I saw the Ni No Kuni free familiar, screamed like a little girl who just got a pet pink dragon, and that was it for me. Good luck. By the way, do you frequent the Bethesda Skyrim forum? Really good idea.

sorry for the wierd typing, but did I read that AMa bans links? There are already discussios about Dragonborn problems.

Thanks for the help.
Turns out it was just a glitch from that session.
I did a game data wipe and downloaded everything from scratch.
Looks like the help they got from Sony made some large improvements in certain areas.

Good to know. I'll buy it this weekend. But still obsessed with Ni No Kuni ;-)

It's just your game. No problems except for a little lag in Apocrypha. Dragonborn is great!
