Fallout New Vegas: Crashing and Freezing Xbox 360 and PS3 Consoles?

After receiving one or two dodgy reviews, the issues surrounding Fallout: New Vegas seem to be piling up, as the game has been suffering from frequent crashes and game freezes during play.

We’re getting reports that the freezing problems in Fallout: New Vegas are pretty severe and that in some cases, it is preventing gamers from working their way through the campaign.

Bethesda are known for the odd problems, i.e Oblivion, but we thought they would have made sure such problems didn’t arise with the release of New Vegas. As far as we know, the crashes are happening on both platforms of the game – with each crash requiring a hard reboot of the system, which is never good.

We haven’t heard anything from Bethesda on this, but I’m pretty sure we will if the ‘teething’ problems continue. For now, give us some feedback on this.

Is your game fine, or have you suffered from any severe crashes during play?

It will never be fixed, just remember that when the new Fallout is released this year (2014). Don’t bother buying it until you see how bad it is.

Well just bought the Fallout Las Vegas Ultimate from Steam, and it is now Oct, 2013, And the Game is the worst for money I have ever spent. The game is good, but every 5 minutes, it freezes, and or, CTD. This game is still not fixed. Has nothing to do with my Pc, My Pc is new and up to date, even with 8g memory. If I would have known about the terrible freezing issue with this game, I never would have bought it. Company’s should be sued for releasing a game like this. Totally, disappointed .

I first got this game day 1 for 360 and it hard crashed all the time and the co owner of Obsidian ended up giving me a free PC copy which can only be played at low settings but even that stuttered. Years later I picked up a ultimate edition for PS3 and still it hard crashes at least once after a few hours and freezes quite a bit. Obsidian blamed the engine because it wasn’t theirs so I’ll give them one more chance when South Park TSOT comes out but if that has crashing and freezing issues I will… Read more »

Game freezes more than my ice maker. POS, spend hours of my life playing a low tech low quality game that I paid full price for, could have spent the money on beer and had more fun!!!!!

I think it might be because of the sheer volume of the content, but I’m not sure. Mine also has a nasty habit of freezing in the middle of an autosave, and because I move so fast through the game without saving for long periods of time (and yes I realize it’s my fault, but I can’t stand slow games) I lose a lot of progress, because the autosave is “corrupted” and cannot be loaded.

Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas both suffer from the same shortcomings. The longer you play it, the more it freezes. We live in the 21st century. A developer should be able to make an expansive RPG (especially one which runs on an older graphics engine) without it freezing and crashing every hour that you play it. I put over 100 hours into Fallout 3 and now I can hardly even play it anymore. It should be illegal to release a game that has this many bugs in it and expect us to pay full price for it. The games… Read more »

I am unable to sell my gold bars from dead money. Every time I use the accept button for the exchange it instantly freezes the game. Please patch that so most of us can say the dead money expansion is worth the money and torture in the story. Seriously it had to have something good out of it. The setting was horrible and some of the challenges during the time spent in that hell hole was absolutely horrible.

I have fallout new vegas for the ps3 and I have to say it worked great until I got all the damn DLC! It freezes everytime I use the pip-boy or even load the game! Also it freezes when I open crates, walk into places, or even just puase the game!

Ok someone told me that you have to delete your fallout game data NOT your save game data it should be at the top of your game menu on your ps3. Then put in the game it should say some thing like down loading game data. After it downloads your trophies. If you dont trust me and you dont wont to delete your data because you think it will delete your save game data do it on mw3 or an easier game first. All it does is drop your bites to a very  small to none megabites or whatever there… Read more »

My game freezes everytime im inside a building and the Level up dialog appears. so basically everytime i level up i have to be out in the mojave……I see now why the price dropped down to 15$

bethesda happy to take your money for something that doesnt work, there soloution drop the price to £15 instead of taking it off the shelves. the sad thing is they get awards for these games, how i do not know. the testers of this game should be taking out back and shot if you ask me ha

PS3: have all the DLCs. Wanted to play them all before ending the game. Each DLC has caused countless “freezing” issues but I have had literally hundreds of issues with “freezing” since before any DLC was installed. Now I’m at Lonesome Road and as soon as the game loads I am attacked by three Marked Men and BAM!…Game freezes. Hard restart or pull the disk out everytime. Well over 170 hours of game time logged. I should have learned my lesson from Fallout 3 which was almost as bad as New Vegas.

I have xbox 360 version.

It’s frozen 3 times on the loading screen when I’ve went outside or inside in different areas.

I seem to have trouble getting into the New Vegas Strip when I go through the gate it loads, but when it is done the screen is black it happens every time I go in. I have reloaded the game, and turned off, and then back on again, but it does not fix anything. Let me know if anyone knows how to fix this. It is really bugging me.

Xbox 360| I have not seen any problems of freezes/stutters whist waiting, sleeping or even fast travels. While roaming the Mojave Wasteland I have noticed some lagging and stuttering as the system renders the environment, NPC’s, etc., but one, and only once, have I had this lead to freeze/hard reboot.  That being said, the problems occur 10% of the time when leaving the dialog screens with NPC’s, and the other 90% of the time they occur during the loading screenshot with the roulette wheel and just after that screen while the screen is still blackout when moving through doors that… Read more »

After 45 hours of play, the freezing is getting unbearable. Seems to have gotten worse. Now it’s like every every hour or more. Each time I have to turn off the XBOX and turn it back on, select the game to load, wait for the prompts, etc. When I’m playing I save about every 2 minutes so I don’t lose too much. If I weren’t so stubborn I’d have thrown Fallout New Vegas in the trash long ago.

just picked it up. played for a few hours and already have two areas i cannot go. thinking of demanding my money back from the corporation.

Well I’m honestly kinda glad I’m not the only one having issues with this damn game. The freezing problems got to the point that it fried my hard drive. I sent a letter to Bethesda telling them what had happened and have gotten no response yet. Which probably means I never will. I already shelled out the money to download them onto my xbox yet my character at the time wasn’t tough enough to try any of them out. I’m already angry I’ve lost a hard drive because one game doesn’t work right, now I just wanna finish the game… Read more »

My game runs fine but yesterday it stopped me in my tracks. I have all the DLC installed. I was inside Hidden Valley(first floor were the shop is) I saved the game over my only other save then I killed the girl for fun I reloaded it since I didn’t want the BOS to hate me. I reloaded it but the roulette wheel was all slow and wouldn’t load. I turned off the Xbox. Turned it on and now the roulette wheel stops after two or 3 spins. It loads new games but I’m level 50. I don’t wanna do… Read more »

Fallout New Vegas (expecially the DLCs) are almost impossble to play. Nothing technical support recommends works to correct the constant lagging and freezing. It really bothers me because I grew up playing all the earlier Fallouts that you could totally get into. This freezing kills that. DO SOMETHING!

I bought this game for the xbox 360 maybe a month ago cuz a friend told me it was great. But the freezes keep occuring randomly and by the fourth freeze i can no longer load the game save forcing me to restart after lvl 20! This is not the first game to randomly freeze on me. On the games that do freeze this and Far Cry 2 i have tried more than a dozen times trying to complete the campaign for the achievement but only get as far as lvl 20 on fallout and 50% on far cry.

I’m at the part where I just teamed up with the NCR and I was running through to turn the water main on to grind up the Legionnaires that are getting in. Yeah I don’t think it could handle that many characters in one spot doing so much shooting and moving in such a small area. It froze and now I get to stare at a screen of enemies with a subtitle saying “All I’m doing is pissing him off.”

No exaggeration here at all. Been playing NV and I’ve froze up at least 6 times in the past 30 minutes. Yes I said 30 minutes. Its at the same spot too. It happens right when I end a transaction with the vendertron at gun runners. I’ve had the usual long loading times and an ocassional freeze at a loading screen but this really has me frustrated. I did download the two latest add-ons last night. Could that be part of the issue?

Austin Cukrowski

Strangely enough, the freezing is the only true problem that has been coming at me from F:NV. The main issue, is when I start killing the Brotherhood, if I die, the loading screen comes up, and just freezes requiring a hard reboot of my 360. WTF MAN!!!

I enjoy Fallout New Vegas but I also suffer from bad lag, falling through the map and instantly dying, but the most annoying so far is,I just had entered the hotel building in Nipton and killed all the Legions dogs. Next I find out that I can check in I just can’t check out. Everytime I try to leave I have infinite load time and just can’t do anything from there on out. I was level 26, tons of ammo, incredible weapons, and just became a member of The Brotherhood. I swear, I was waiting for Ashton Kutcher to pop up… Read more »

I love this game and the DLC available is great. But my game keeps freezing in any save game situation…ie trying to enter buildings or waiting or just flat out pause then save it did t start until I downloaded honest hearts. I can walk any where for as long as I want but it will freeze up if I try to save or go through a door then it stopped when I left honest hearts. Now I got old world blues and I can’t even start the DLC. Frankly I’m kinda mad about it. Is it the game or… Read more »

New Vegas is by far one of the most addicting, most fun games I’ve ever played. But I swear, I can’t go more than 10 minutes without it freezing. It’s a real shame. I can’t believe that Bethesda published this. It’s like it’s still in development stages. I hope these are fixed in Fallout 4.

I had a level 35 character with a sh*tload of ammo, pretty good weapons which took some time to aquire and I finished Dead Money (which, by the way was insanely hard and frustrating). I basically spent a year and a half’s worth of gameplay on this profile only to have it utterly destroyed by faulty programming. Now I cant even have my character walk 2 inches without the game freezing. Its a damn shame too, New Vegas is a great game but that opinion is stained by the constant freezing and glitches.

It’s 9 months since this game has released and it is still filled with many issues including hard crashes and infinite load screens. Since the last update I get random hard crashes and infinite load screens every time I try to play and with some missions I can’t play with the new update because the game crashes or the mission won’t load. I erase the update, finish a mission, save and quit and then it hard crashes. Then I must re download the update just to play the dlc. Clearing the cache does nothing, and I have no corrupted saves… Read more »

I’ve played more than 110 hours of FALLOUT: NEW VEGAS and the game often crashed. Yes, it was annoying but I still enjoyed playing. It was a fine game. Now, all of a sudden, I cannot switch between weapons anymore. I can draw my baseball bat just fine but the moment I try to switch to my gun the game freezes. This happened to all of my saves even though I had four different saves + the auto save. For me, the game’s lost after 110 hours of playing. It all ended just when I was about to kill Mr.… Read more »

This article is dated 10/19/10 & I just got the game on 7/1/11 and I literally cannot get the game to stop freezing (I play on a Jasper Elite 360). It is installed on my HDD & I routinely clear my system cache. I’m lucky if I can go 10 minutes w/o a freeze — it’s ridiculous! Where’s the patch? Will there ever be one? I can’t even find a verified Bethesda twitter. This sux worse because ME3 doesn’t come out for another 8 months…

Chris Rhodes

I have multiple Profiles on Fallout vegas already, each one having over 80 hours of gameplay or more. And now, I cannot access ANY of them. The game freezes before even loading my save. And I am even on the new Xbox 360 Slim. (Old white case elite RROD’d) So now, ALL MY TIME, probably a combined time of over 300 hours of gameplay is gone basically, since I cannot play on any of them. Thank you. Goodbye.

Michael Axline

I know this thing is old, but time for me to put in my two cents. Skyrim comes out in just under 4 months… That will put Elder Scrolls: Oblivion GOTY at just over what, 4 years old? And they still haven’t fixed the problem with being unable to cure vampirism. Seeing as Marrowind had a whole different game basically, inside it, that you could play as a vampire… It’s a pretty big thing. My point is, Bathesda releases games that are awesome storywise, graphics… But you just can’t play the damn things. I’ve never finished a single game released… Read more »

I’m at 138 hours now and it’s freezing every few hours on the XBOX 360 (white case).  It especially likes to fail at “door opening” events.  I usually save frequently when I’m in a bunker and have to open many doors.  Out in the open things seem to be fine…

Too bad my unit doesn’t like to read the DVDs very well.  Usually takes a dozen attempts to get it to read the (pristene, unscratched) disc.

Rachel Martin

About half way through FO3 was when it started freezing up on me and my fiance. It got so bad I didn’t even bother trying to finish the game. I was so excited to play New Vegas because I thought “this one is brand new, there shouldn’t be any problems with it” but after maybe 4 hours of playing spread out over 2 days, it froze. I don’t understand how a game can be mass released with such a flaw in production.

Bethesda is not to blame here…and I’m sure they learned fast with Oblivion for Skyrim. However I wanted to try Fallout New Vegas (yup I never did before) and after 10 hours of enjoyment (with a lot of criticism on the side) it crashed and won’t reload my game…lost everything and I’m not sure I want to start over again…for now. Let’s just say I’m f*ckin pissed to know that when they published a big game like this and still having huge problem (even after the fourth one)

Michael Chaney

If I set a day to play New Vegas, it’ll freeze like 2 or 3 times during the first few hours and will require a hard-reboot but after that it will usually play smoothly… Of course I’d rather it NEVER FREEZE. If you ask me a game that freezes one time is a game freezing one time too many. The game has been out long enough now that Bethesda or Obsidian should have been able to release a patch to fix this. Its really getting annoying.

Bethesda is only the publisher for New Vegas, NOT the developer as they were with Fallout 3 and Oblivion. The problems for this game should be blamed on Obsidian, and if you have played their past games they are notoriously known for these problems happening in their games, look at Alpha Protocol and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2. It drives me crazy when people blame Bethesda for the problems in this game when they really weren’t on the developing end of this game.

Turns out it's a fatal flaw in the build of the game… due to the game's massive cache rate, especially when you get to upwards of 80-90 hours of gameplay, the cache can no longer recycle all the data properly and you get screwed. Just heard it from Bethesda's own mouth! But, in the defense, the Gamebryo engine was used and made that way so that we don't have load screens 20 times for every ten minutes of Wasteland wandering. My point: if you're like me and you like to loot your brains out, safe yourself the fun until you've… Read more »

Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas both freeze up for no reason. FO3 was so bad that I would save almost every few minutes. Today in FONV within 5 hours it froze up 7 times. Hard freezes..re-start. I can't travel, look around or try to find out who was shooting at me. I haven't played FONV for 3 months,due to the freezing, and it is now almost impossible to play. Guess I need to save every few minutes again. Bethesda, I had respect for your company….not so much anymore.

fallout new vegas freezes ALL THE TIME. usually when i walk through a door, the black screen that appears for about a millisecond before the loading screen appears just stays there. not every time though, just often enough for it to be ridiculously annoying. it also freezes extremely often at random points in the game. this never happened with my first saved game, but ever since i began a new one (which i had to do due to the fact that it's impossible to continue playing after completing the final quest) i've been having a lot of problems with freezes.… Read more »

I've had 2 crashes in 2 days of playing New Vegas. This is the exact reason I wait to buy games, so the developer can work out the bugs and I don't get frustrated. I have about 3 hrs of game play and 2 crashes so far. Barely even made it outta Goodsprings last night and it crashed. I figured after 6 months of the game being released that they would have fixed this but it does not appear to be the case.

I bought F/New Vegas about a year ago for the hell of it, loved the game, kicks ass. Played happily with no problems till around level 25, then would freeze with sound still playing every few days and require a hard boot to fix. Occasionally holding the PS button solved it, maybe 20% of the time. Things out of invent went missing and the odd bug crept up but wasnt bad enough to make me stop playing. Once I maxed out exp I got bored and bought Fallout 3. Another kick ass game. Froze maybe twice up until level 25,… Read more »

I have had nothing but problems with this game, from companions getting stuck or vanishing into thin air, random freezes at the loading screen and now I was prompt with a update and after the update, I continue to load my saved game and then tells me my saved game relies on downloaded content. If I continue to attempt loading the saved game it just freezes the entire xbox 360. Very disappointed that this was released when it was no where near ready.

Mine requires a hard reboot about every hour of play. That wasnt so bad I could time it and save in time. However as of late the sky has turned green and it would keep me stuck in a vats attack until the person dies or I die (that problem is fixed with a load). It is worst in the wasteland for me and never slow or laggy.

Mine freezes constantly. During one hour of play I can be assured of needing to reboot at least twice. The longer and farther you get in the game – the more it freeses. I am using a PS3. My son has an Xbox 360 version and his freezes somewhat less than mine. Maybe once every 2 hours.

What a shame – incredible game and like Fallout 3, incredible gameplay, graphics, storyline, etc. Just too frustrating to play with the freezing.

This is god damn horrendous. I cant play this game any more – every session i play it crashes with a full re-boot every time. Shame too as its a good game otherwise

We just got ours from Gamefly, no problems with it until maybe halfway through the campaign and then it just stopped. Frozen solid. Real annoying.

you know i noticed something, when i purchased fallout 3 without any updates or addon packs, i had no issues playing the game, i played for hours, and days. no issues. then vegas came out, and yea i noticed the issues, then i bought the updates for 3, and i had even more issues with that one, especially when i got the pitt expansion. i guess the game works bare bone and you just bone yourslef if you get the addons
