I should point out that the bugs are not reported to be as bad either. If I had any interest in this type of game, I would get it since all the reviews I have seen say the bugs are relatively minor.
If you have the 360 & PC version, you've only
had random crashes; locked quests; and general issues with dragons to worry about. You know, "minor things" like that. On PS3, you had all those and
frequent crashing and framerate issues. Maybe it's just me, but I think only people indoctrinated by decades of patching on PC could see such issues and call them "minor".
Now, if you believe the patch notes for 1.4, most of the issues I've named have now been fixed. I couldn't tell you from my own experience, because in the 3 months it took Bethesda to care I got rid of my copy. I'll have to borrow my best friend's copy to finish the game, and I'm really not in a hurry to do so since I have a feeling as usual Bethesda's created more issues than they've fixed with these patches.
