Whilst Bethesda have not given an exact date on when the update will be released you can be certain that many PS3 players will be anxious to get their hands on it. You could also assume that Sony will be watching this situation very closely, they must of hoped that Skyrim would end their 2011 on a high after a damaging year for them but many people who own both Xbox and PS3 would have been put off buying the PS3 version because of the issues.

They become the universal butt of any joke in that medium, the yardstick against which every other poorly-received release is measured. [...]
