I've got 130+ hours into skyrim and upon completing the burning of king olaf my game freezes within 5 minutes of loading every time. Has anyone had a similar problem and been able to solve it by any means?
It's not freezing on autosaves or any other specific action.

  • This is probably obvious but just for clarity, have you downloaded the latest patch from the PSN?

    Have you tried saving another game after reloading your save, saving it to another slot, and THEN loading the last save again?

  • I will try what you suggested Bora, I found a similar suggestion in an article on the lag.

    130 hours? That's all? When did you buy the game, just last week? ;-)

I found the same problem, when you load right before they start burning him just walk away from the area that they are burning him... try that once
