The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim got its first major patch on the PlayStation 3 today, with similar patches hitting the 360 and PC versions on November 30. A number of big issues have been fixed for all the systems, including the hilarious-but-annoying problem of having the corpses of your friends spawn during a wedding ceremony -- that one got me this weekend!
