What’s the deal with Bethesda’s latest adventure, Skyrim? Well, aside from the fact that it is awesomely addictive, Skyrim is suffering from a PlayStation 3 “only” unresolved lag issue that is compromising the experience for many PS3 owners. Although I haven’t started playing Skyrim, I am a bit afraid that by the time I will hit the 60 Hours mark, I will reach the pinnacle of my adventure.
Apparently, there have been many speculations regarding the origin of the problem and the correct methods to resolve it. Patch 1.2 was released by Bethesda to resolve some issues, including the lag problem, however, the problem still persists. According to many users, not only did Patch 1.2 not fix the issue, but also made things worse, as they are now experiencing more issues, including the infamous flying backward dragon glitch.
With over 1,000 cars, 26 different locations, and 71 different tracks available in the game, Gran Turismo 5 is easily PlayStation’s most respected and exclusive racing simulator. The game was developed by Polyphony Digital and published by SCE, then released on November 24th, 2010 as the first entry of the Gran Turismo series to be developed for the PS3.

Sony has supplied another update to the PlayStation Network restoration timeline. It looks like it’ll be a few more days at least:
I know you all want to know exactly when the services will be restored. At this time, I can’t give you an exact date, as it will likely be at least a few more days. We’re terribly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
That’s a better estimate than May 31st, but it’s still pretty dreadful news for any PS3 owner that wants to play new games like Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, SOCOM 4 or Brink (which was released today) online.
