Bethesda has responded to media criticism surrounding the stability of Fallout: New Vegas by issuing a patch through Steam, which will automatically update the game client upon launch.

According to Gamespot, an unnamed Bethesda spokesperson issued the following statement;

"We have just released an automatic update for the PC version of Fallout: New Vegas that resolves quest and scripting issues. 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 preorder 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."
