Bethesda Working To Fix SKYRIM Xbox 360 Graphical Problems

According to developers Bethesda there are texture issues when you install the game on your Xbox 360 hard drive but they are working to solve the problem by the next title update.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released today to rave reviews, however there appears to be some graphical issues plighting some users experience with the much anticipated title on the Xbox 360. According to developers Bethesda there are texture issues when you install the game on your Xbox 360 hard drive. Here is what Bethesda had to say:

"Skyrim uses a lot of dynamic streaming systems, including textures. We've seen a few reports of certain textures temporarily scaling down on the Xbox 360, and not scaling back up, We have verified that this issue does not occur when playing off the disk and when the game is fully cached (not installed). "Skyrim makes heavy use of the Xbox 360 caching system, and caches over the normal course of play while in menus or interiors. This cache can be wiped when other games are played or when the user manually removes it."
There is no time table for when the fix will be released only that it is on its' way and will be available with the next title update. Since this problem occurs only when you install the game it, you may want to consider running the Skyrim off the disc for the time being. However, I have to say I bought the game last night and have it installed on my Xbox 360 and knock on wood I haven't had any of these problems, yet anyway. Have any of you run into these problems while playing the game? For those who want to know, I haven't gotten very far in the game yet but I am loving every minute of it; and if you don't hear from me for about three months you know why. We have more Skyrim articles on the way including our review very soon!
