Fallout 3 a Mess of Bugs?
Fallout 3 a Mess of Bugs? [ Community -> Update ]

More info on Game: Fallout 3

A quick look at the Fallout 3 Tech Support forums reveals a very disturbing trend. The game has been out for less than a day and there is already a great outcry among players. The PS3 community is especially angry. It looks like they were completely screwed over and Fallout 3 for the PS3 is almost unplayable. One PS3 blogger writes:

As a PS3 owner, I've been constantly blogging about Fallout 3 and how amazing it will be and letting people know recent news about the game, and this is how i get treated after both doing this, and giving Bethesda 60 bucks. I can't believe a patch hasn't already been announced as on sites like Gamespot, the game is recieving LOWER ratings simply because of these problems that are SO obvious in the game. WHY THE HELL DOES THE GAME LAG EVERY TIME SOMEONE SIGNS IN/OUT ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST??? NOT EVEN THE WORST OF PS3 PORTS HAVE THAT PROBLEM!!!!! I'm not one of those kinds of people that go crazy over small things exclusive to another console like the DLC, or the PC's superior graphics, but this is OUTRAGEOUS. Draw distance, Framerate, lighting,Anti-Aliasing etc. has all be Dumbed down so bad to a point that it seems the developers did this on PURPOSE. I heard that Bethesda Will release a patch for the ps3 version that fixes these problems if we demand it so here i am demanding this. If you guys don't, then, I'll be glad to go get my money back, and buy Farcry 2 instead and sign a petition that goes against Bethesda.

PC players are reporting on constant crashes, crashes when creating new games, crashes on the intro video, and a load of other crash issues. As of the time of writing this post, this poll asks users if the game is working well for anyone. 69% said No.

If you are experiencing issues with the game, then go here for PC problems, here for Xbox 360 problems, and here for PS3 problems.

For some reason, I feel like the XBox problems will be the first to be fixed.
