The long-awaited 1.7 update for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has finally launched for PlayStation 3.
While PS3 gamers never received Patch 1.6, which adds such gameplay improvements as mounted combat and support for the Dawnguard expansion, the contents of that update have been rolled into this one.
The patch notes, which include various bug fixes and memory optimizations (as usual), are listed below. We've also included the 1.6 patch notes, as these features are new to PS3 players.
Now, if only we could get that elusive Dawnguard expansion on our platform.
Thanks to PSU reader @Joshua_S_Helm for alerting us.

@1 and @2 Apparently the update says 1.06 when downloading, but according to Bethesda PR it's the right version. What a snafu, huh?

Can you believe all that has got fixed just goes to show how buggy this game was luckily I didnt experience that much on my 1st playthrough, I'm waiting for Dawnguard and starting again so hopefully my new file will be better

So I got the update and started playing and after I saved my game it got stuck on that screen. Will not let me use R1 or L1 to get to the quest logs. So frustrated just turned it off.

Updated. Title screen: Continue. Loading. Loading... Loading. Great. Stuck on loading screen. PS Button. Frozen system. Rinse and repeat. I just deleted all game data. Hoping for the best...

After deleting all game data and reinstalling it all, it seems fine now. @6 I've noticed that since the patch if you hit Start AFTER already haven hit Circle, you're stuck within the System tab. If you back out of the menu entirely and hit Start, you'll have access to the other tabs. This is ridiculous of course, but there you have it.
