Following on from my post yesterday, it now appears that patch 1.3 for Fallout: New Vegas is safe to download on the Xbox 360, which is good news indeed and it seems to have been sorted out fairly quickly too!
Those of you who saw my post yesterday, or experienced the horror of downloading the patch previously, will know that it was causing problems with save game files and even brought a system or two crashing to a halt.
Luckily though, this has now all been resolved, and Bethesda issued the following statement on the Fallout forums:
New 360 update is now available for the English version of the game, and with it, your saves should now load properly.
When other versions become available, we'll let you know.
Well that should be a load off your mind, if like me, you were worried that you were going to lose hours and hours of gameplay, resulting in an agonising trip back to the start of the game! [vg247]
