Bethesda’s blog has news about the ‘comprehensive’ Fallout: New Vegas patch (version 1.02,) stating that it is now available for North American and European PS3 users.
    Xbox LIVE and Steam should have it “early next week.” There was some talk of PC users getting it as early as yesterday, but that has not come to pass.
    Judging by the fix list (recreated below,) it seems 1.02 will mend … err … quite a few things. In fact looking at this list, it seems some kind of miracle that I was able to play the game with no problems at all.
    Anyway, here’s what’s been changed:
    Top fixes:

    Companions now show up as waypoints on the map
    Companions will always fast travel with you, unless told to wait or sent away
    Fix: DLC error/save corruption
    Fix: Entering the strip after Debt Collector causes crash and autosave corruption
    Fix: Using Mojave Express dropbox can cause DLC warnings
    Crafting menu now filters valid (bright) recipes to the top of the list
    Weathered pistol no longer glitches when applying mods

    In addition, this patch addresses issues with the following areas:

    Pip-Boy Interface
    Pre-Order DLC Items
    Reputation System
    Radio Stations
    Companion fixes
    Companion Quests
    Repair Menu
    Weapons and Weapon Mods
    Hardcore Mode
    Crafting Recipes
    Crafting Menu
    Mojave Express
