Aliens: Colonial Marines 360/PS3 update released

Nope, still not 'getting over it'

I'm sorry, dear readers. I've still not "gotten over" Aliens: Colonial Marines. After a set period of time, gamers tend to get aggressively apathetic over certain situations, and seem to grow angry if someone else isn't as relaxed as they are. To answer these paradoxically furious calls for calm -- NOPE. 

That in mind, it's time to look at a new patch released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Following in the footsteps of the recently released PC patch, this update fixes a load of technical errors and glitches, so numerous that it's easy to not even know half of them existed. 

Most important in this update is a fix -- after several weeks now -- that finally stitches up an issue Xbox 360 users were having with their save files getting wiped. Frankly, I considered that "glitch" a small mercy, but there you go. 

Full patch notes are below.
