It looks like the issues that have been plaguing Fallout: New Vegas
may have finally been resolved for the consoles as of yesterday. On a post on Bethesda’s the official forums, Senior Producer Jason Bergman details the patch that first went live on Steam, and was subsequently released for the PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Apparently there are over 200 "quest and scripting fixes" in the release. If you shelved the game because of the issues, it looks like it is time to pick it back up and download the patch to continue your quest.
