Same for Skyrim, start freezing/lagging now when my save is large and ive played a lot also since no DLC is out for PS3 and skyrim I had to drop the PS3 system for new RPGs in favour for flawless PC play.

So had to switch from PS3 to PC on bethesda RPG's, sadly enough since I liked to play using a gamepad on my TV.

So im playing new games mostly on PC now, understandable when you have spent near 1k hours on the fallout and elder scrolls games on PS3 and get let down by not beeing able to play when you get far in.
bethesda's PS3 support has always been crap. I remember Fallout 3 having a glitch that would insta crash it near the brotherhood of steel's main compound. By simply walking in a cartain direction it would crash the game. this was fixed on the xbox version within a week. The PS3 version it had taken them nearly 3 whole weeks. Sucks.

back on the Amiga i have been getting Perihelion going again. However I can not remember all the rune codes for the spells. There is a large list of codes for spells. I had em on paper but it's missing.

Do you think it is because the System is "older" that it crash when there is to much saved? Or what can cause that on a system?

Because when more and more objects in the world are discovered the location of them are stored in the save file like items on the floor/tables etc and then it gets loaded in the ram and the ps3 has just to little ram at 256MB so it cripples when saves are to large.
So any of the fallout and elder scrolls gets unplayable when you have played long on one character.
I am sure they could bring an workaround for this but they might think it's to much work.

So selling broken games for the PS3 should not be allowed... since they have not fixed this issue in any of the games but keep releasing new ones with the same problems but just ignore it. That's so wrong on so many levels....

So I'm ditching Bethesda on console and I'll play em on pc instead. No more buying broken software for the ps3.

Also I skip quite a lot of ps3 games if they have no install to hard drive option because the blu-ray is to darn slow to load textures from and other content. Bought borderline 2 for PS3 without knowing and there where NOW install option, 10 mins after trying the game I ordered it for pc.

So I'm off the PS3 market, to many games with issues and to slow loading and other problems.

So atm I'm buying for pc and since I upgrade my pc quite often for quicker rendering and compiling anyways I have quite good hardware and have no problem running new games, I only have to spend a few hundred dollars extra for a new graphics card now and then but its no problem since I like to have quick gfx cards for protein folding anyways.

I thought the PS3 had 512 MB RAM, and you are right in that not all games run smootly on it. And some games take up to 5 GB of memory in saved games, just to get started and go a couple of levels. So i have to delete many saved games as my PS3 only have 80 Gb HardDisk.

256MB vram and 256MB ram.
You can replace your hard drive with nearly whatever 2.5" drive you want, I have an 750GB drive so I got no storage issues, before I had an SSD in it but the gain in most games where to slight and many games do not install to the HDD anyways so I'm happy with the 750GB drive.

Yes then you have no problems with storage Do you remember that PC i got last month, with Geforce and that, if i connect it to my plamsa, will it be able to play games in PS3 quality? I must admit i have not much experince with putting a PC to flatscreens

If you're into Amiga shooters, you'll certainly love this one. The music is awesome aswell, some nice chip tune elements in it.

PS3 quality won't be any problem for your machine, you can run many games in 1920x1080, PS3 runs most games in 1280x720 and many times it's scaled from a lower resolution and there are not many unscaled 1920x1080 games for ps3.
So yes you can play most in ps3 like settings and some higher.
Don't forget that using digital output on a plasma often require under/overscan tweaking but it's trivial and easy done in nvidias control panel.

You will also have ****loads faster loading times.
Some games work ok with a gamepad on pc also like Skyrim and Fallout since they are console ports.

Yeah, Bethesda is great at making buggy games Take Oblivion, for example. The UNOFFICIAL patches for Oblivion and it's expansion fix over 3000 bugs, and these patches are made by the community. Another good one is the game's performance. There are some mods that make the game run MUCH smoother, and again those are made by the community.

It seems like Bethesda thinks that it's a good idea to just let the community handle those problems on the PC (and screw PS3)

The advantage of playing on the PC is of course the mods

This last couple of weeks...

Amiga 1200:
UFO Enemy Unknown (AGA version)
Slam Tilt
Speedball 2 (2 player, which is the BEST way to play Speedball!)

PC:
X-Com Enemy Unknown
X-Wing Collectors Edition (tweaked to run on Windows 7)
Dungeon Keeper

iOS:
Pinball Arcade - just can't get enough of this, hope they green-light the Steam version for PC eventually.

@som99
Aare you using only one save, or several files?.*Also, do you have the system upgraded?. In fallout nv for example, upgrades solved the majority of problems, and i never had again the problem of freezes with beteshda games.
In fact, i have a save on nv and skyrim full of discoveries and objects and it plays perfectly.
