Fallout: New Vegas PS3 patch live, next week for PC/360

Yes! Finally! The megapatch for Fallout: New Vegas we’ve all been desperately awaiting is now available for PlayStation 3 owners. For those playing on Steam or Xbox 360, the same patch is expected to go live early next week. Here are the so-called “top fixes”:

  • Companions now show up as waypoints on the map
  • Companions will always fast travel with you, unless told to wait or sent away
  • Fix: DLC error/save corruption
  • Fix: Entering the strip after Debt Collector causes crash and autosave corruption
  • Fix: Using Mojave Express dropbox can cause DLC warnings
  • Crafting menu now filters valid (bright) recipes to the top of the list
  • Weathered pistol no longer glitches when applying mods

The fixes for specific quests and game mechanics/areas are listed on the Bethesda Blog. Basically, much of the content in New Vegas is being tweaked in some way. As someone who is about to do a Hardcore mode run, the mere promise of not having to un-glitch my companions every twenty minutes is overwhelming.
