In this article at Eurogamer, Pete Hines said that a patch for the PC version of Fallout 3 would be released later today:
Bethesda bigwig Pete Hines has said a patch for the PC version of the game will be released later today.
Speaking in a Eurogamer Live Text article, he said the patch will "address a few PC-specific things that have come up".
Yeah, that didn't happen. So what will happen? Matt Grandstaff clears things up:
Hey all, I wanted to give you an update on this…
It looks like this patch might not being going up today, but you should
expect it sometime this week. You should know the patch only fixes some
crashing on exiting the game, as requested by Microsoft.
We’re also moving along with pulling together a more extensive
update. We’re still in the process of going through and looking at any
issues/fixes, and once that is done there is lots of additional
testing/fixing that has to be done before it can be released.
Similarly, we're looking into matters on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
When I’ve got more information, I’ll pass it along.
Fortunately, none of this bothers me yet because my copy still has not arrived. With my luck, it was probably confiscated by customs.
