I've finally decided to give in and buy it since everywhere I turn people are proclaiming it to be the "best game i've ever played"

I read somewhere that when you download the game to your HDD the textures become blurry on the 360 version. (I put every game I play on to the HDD to give the lens a longer life span, and so the 360 will run quieter)

What are the advantages/disadvantages of each version?

The PS3 version still has some major bug issues. They tried to fix the savegame bug by releasing Patch 1.2 but it didn't work out. The game still starts lagging after 2-3 hours and the patch created some other problems like system crashes, freezes, damaged save files, broken magic resistance and dragons flying backwards. Bethesda is releasing a patch next week that should deal with the problems of 1.2.

I have also heard about the texture problem on the 360.

Looks like both versions have problems but the PS3 ones are more severe.

You should probably wait till next week to see the result of the new patch.

If you have a decent enough PC, the PC would drown the Playstation 4 or Xbox 720 xD

Seriously, if you can, the PC version is almost always best

this is true but I don't feel like upgrading my PC every few years or spending 500 dollars on a high powered graphics card.

I appreciate being able to buy a game blindly and not have to worry about whether my PC can handle it or not.

I would get the PS3 version regardless of any issues or bugs, because it's quite likely that some time down the track they're going to get fixed and I've heard PS3's are better than Xbox 360's when it comes to running games, graphics-wise too.

I'm no expert though so my opinion there is akin to bar room talk, but it's something to look into none the less, just to make sure.

Graphic differences aren't really noticable between the two consoles (you see reviewers compare game graphics between the two and they always look near enough the same), just go for which controller you like id say (unless one console is still really really buggy.).

I'm sorry to people that play only ps3, but to play skyrim on it would be insulting to the game, I have ps3, 360, and wii, and 360's graphics are much better, and it's shorter loading screens, and less buggy.

I seriously recommend the PC version if your computer can play it. The modding that comes with these games prolong their life which you can't find on consoles.
