Skyrim Patch 1.2 Incoming this Week to Fix Xbox Install Issue Et Al

Bethesda has released some new details about the first major patch (v1.2) for Skyrim, which among other things will fix the Xbox 360 HDD install texture issue.  This patch will address other annoying bugs as well, but the 360 install issue has been one that gamers have been waiting for since launch day.  I’ve been fine playing it from the disc, but I have to admit that the noise of the disc spinning does get kind of annoying while listening to the game’s beautiful score.  As far as actual release dates go for this Skyrim patch, PS3 users will get it first (might be there today 11/28), while Xbox and PC users should get it this Wednesday (11/30).  For a full list of fixes that this version 1.2 patch will bring head down past the break.  You’ve been wanting to get your install on…
