I picked up a copy of Fallout: New Vegas yesterday and am a couple hours into the story. While I can say that the game seems like an improvement over Fallout 3, there seems to be some severe technical issues when it comes to crashing and freezing. I had similar issues with Fallout 3 GOTY edition for the PS3 where the game would lag and freeze often and it looks like the exact same problems exist with this new game. After only a couple hours of gaming, I’ve already experienced two freezes that required a hard reboot of the PS3, which is definitely not a good thing.
Despite the problems, I definitely plan to play the game through completion, but I’m certainly not happy about these issues at all. There are reports out there that the 360 version is also having issues. I guess I’ll just have to see how things go and hope the freezing doesn’t ruin my experience. If you’re experiencing similar problems with the game, feel free to drop us a comment.
