When a developer releases a new patch for its video games, it’s meant to sort out issues and not create them, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with the recently released Fallout: New Vegas patch. In fact, many Xbox 360 gamers have reported problems since downloading it.
According to Fred Dutton over on the eurogamer.net website, many players have posted on the Fallout: New Vegas game’s official forum, stating that they have either been experiencing regular system crashes or have been unable to load saved games since installing the new patch.
One poster said that they had settled down in front of their Xbox 360 to play Fallout: New Vegas, only to have the game freeze on them. Another forum poster said that the latest update had wrecked their game, and that it wouldn’t load up their past saves.
However, a post on Bethesda’s Twitter page acknowledged the problem that Xbox 360 owners had been having, and insisted that a fix was being worked on. The publisher said that they are currently working with Microsoft, and that they should have more information on a fix soon.
