Saving in Skyrim on the PS3 seems to be very complicated (Menu --> Save ... etc).

This is frustrating, especially in Dungeons.

Is there any quicksave / fastsave feature on the PS3?


No, there isn't a quicksave feature for Skyrim on the PS3, but you can use the wait function to make an autosave, if you have it enabled in your settings (On by default, I believe). You may abort the wait after starting it, the autosave will still be made.

    Also you can go to settings and enable it by like every five minutes in either pressing the quest screen and other screen. – xFaLLeN_Eternity Apr 8 '12 at 15:20

By default, the game is saved each time you enter a new place, rest or sleep. Check the options menu.


You can set in the settings to save on menu every 5 mins. That means after every 5 minute laps while you play the game, just press the circle button to enter your menu selection and it will autosave. Pressing it again afterwards wont autosave unless 5 minutes has lapsed in the game.

5 minutes should be adequate enough for you to do something and then get a quick autosave without having to manually save the game. Works for me.
