    Any reason why the 360 patch comes later? I bought the game last week, i just could not ignore it anymore for that low price, haha. But i’ve yet to really dive into it, when i finally do….there’s no stopping me, that game is so addictive then. Well…at least Fallout 3 for me was.

    Same reason as always, MS’ long certification process.

    Goddamn why do I love Fallout so much, when it hurts me so bad? I installed the last patch & it made the glitches worse! So will approach this with caution. Oh & all you guys who say you never had any problems… I hate you!

    But how bad is it exactly with the bugs for New Vegas? I have only played the beginning part, i am outside the house and that’s it :)

    @2 Wouldn’t surprise me, but if that’s true, then how come plenty of other developers are able to hotfix and patch their games far quicker than that on XBLA and Steam?

    Personally I just think Obsidian are pretty bad at finishing and testing their games. I haven’t played or heard of one that wasn’t packed full of bugs.
