Skyrim 1.5 patch hit Xbox Live, PS3 today

PC players got it first, but now console players of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim can get their kill on with the new kill camera views, along with a few other changes and bug fixes in the new 1.5 patch being released today.

The Xbox Live version is already available and the PS3 version should be out later today, according the Bethesda's blog. They also revealed some of the gameplay numbers, saying "the average Skyrim play time (across all three platforms) is 85 hours, and 30 percent of you have played more than 100 hours of the game."

When the PC version became available three weeks ago, Bethesda released a trailer showing off the kill cam. Other changes coming today include new kill moves and animations for melee weapons, and smithing skill increases now factor in the created item's value.
