Shack PSA: Skyrim 1.4 update on Xbox 360, PS3 today

The 1.4 update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is available now on Xbox 360, and will be coming to the PlayStation 3 later today. The update brings assorted bug and quest fixes across all platforms, including yet another whack at the PlayStation 3's most persistent problem.

A few notables from the patch list include fixes to some crashes like AI and pathing, optimization and performance adjustments, roughly two dozen quest fixes. If you had some kind of unresolvable quest sitting around in your queue, this might be the patch to fix it.

One eye-catching note for PlayStation 3 players should be "long term play optimizations for memory and performance" on the platform. The game has an ugly tendency to see a sharp performance drop after extended play, which is especially dire in a game that can go on for hundreds of hours. Even after a former update was meant to solve the problems, they've persisted, so hopefully this time they'll be stamped out for good.
