As promised, Fallout New Vegas publisher Bethesda says they've patched the PC version of the new role-playing game and are working on updates for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions soon.
"We have just released an automatic update for the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas that resolves quest and scripting issues," Kotaku was told by a Bethesda representative late yesterday. "We're working hard to make this update available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game as soon as possible and will let you know as soon as we have the dates they'll be up."
"The issue regarding the PlayStation 3 digital pre-order bonuses has also been resolved. Users should attempt to re-enter the codes to download their bonuses. Should the "80023156" error continue, we ask that players wait 24 hours before entering the code again. The code should then activate the bonus without any issue."
Bethesda has also posted these update notes on their blog. Gamers have been complaining about bugs in New Vegas, while Bethesda has been rushing to fix them and offer solutions. Not an ideal situation, but one that is hopefully fully remedied soon.
