Hopefully the PS3 lag issues will actually be fixed. Annoying the crap out of me.

I actually haven't really noticed any awful lag - it suprised me when it was so prominently mentioned in the article I read.

I have to play on an unpatched version of the game. Reading all these possible bugs, I'm kind of paranoid now. o.O

Ha, yeah, I'm getting more and more paranoid as well. Just browsing Yahoo Answers, there are thousands of questions posted every day about "z0mg quest r brok3n!". Course, our support forum here isn't any different.Why do you have to play the unpatched version though? I'd just take a USB stick to school and try to get the update. That's what I used to do for the PS3 firmware updates - not sure if they have the PS3 Skyrim patches online as well.

I'm not technically inclined, so I'll tell you my problem. Basically, I can't download everything I need for xbox live because I can't fit the update on my memory card. I have one of the cheap, 64 MB ones and even if I were to delete everything off of that, I wouldn't be able to fit it on there. So basically I can't use live unless I buy a hardrive. Unless I'm mistaken and there is another way.
