, giving the game a 9.5. Consumers seem to be buying it up rather quickly, too, with the game selling 3.5 million copies in two days.
But gamers across all platforms have been reporting problems. So Bethesda's VP of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, has responded via Twitter, posting, "PS3 & 360 updates have been submitted for certification," confirming that Sony and Microsoft have received their respective patches for testing. "PC coming too," he continued, concluding that the "Current estimate is [the patches] will be live the week after [Thanksgiving]." Thanksgiving in the United States falls this year on Thursday, November 24th.
This follows another Pete Hines Tweet we reported on last week, that Bethesda is working on a fix. Hines Tweeted then that "Patches/updates take a little time. We can't turn it around quite that fast. It's been three days. Calm down. We're working on it."
So the wait for a bulky new Skyrim patch isn't far away. In the meantime, please take part in our unscientific study if you're playing on the PlayStation 3 in particular.
