Ok, so with the Investor perk (Speech 70) you can make an investment in different merchants. I've found a lot of them in the game giving up the offer and I've invested in about 5 different merchants so far, however, only the first one that I invested in has ever actually had an increase in money.

Can you only invest in ONE merchant? Has anybody else invested in multiple merchants? I know I can get the next perk up the chain to give everybody more gold overall but that isn't the issue.

Just not sure if this is a bug or a 'feature' for the PS3?

Every merchant I invested in has a persistent 500g increase (with the exception of the Riverwood Trader who has over 10000g but that's a different bug). Try waiting 48 hours. If they truly do not have more gold than before, it is a bug.

The riverwind trader was the first merchant i invested in and I expected him to have around 10k~ gold on him. I'm about 90hrs (real time) into the game so I guess it is yet another bug :/ – Christopher Klein Dec 28 '11 at 19:01
i'm about 500 hrs in RT Robots correct,and i usually wait 24 hrs then 24 minus however many hours to bring me to 9am. I also have the more money perk. if you find your problem persists i would suggest SAVING,then taking the perk and checking with your mechants again to see if this triggered a change :) – 2 SCooPS Dec 28 '11 at 19:39
