The Pitt Launches to Bugs, Crashes on Xbox 360

Bethesda is hard at work figuring out what went wrong with the Xbox 360 version of Fallout 3 [http://fallout.bethsoft.com/eng/info/thepitt.html] DLC that went live today amid a torrent of crashes, lockups and other nasty bugs.

Many areas in the new expansion are packed with floating trees, buildings, debris and most disconcerting of all, gigantic red exclamation marks. Lockups and crashes also seem to be occurring with alarming frequency.

The problem, according to Bethesda [http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/bethesda-fixing-the-pitt-for-xbox-360] is now trying to have it pulled to avoid any further downloads.

"We are continuing to look into the issues people are experiencing with The Pitt for Xbox 360," Gstaff Microsoft [http://www.bethsoft.com/bgsforums/index.php?showtopic=970028&st=0&p=14015226&#entry14015226] to remove the existing file off of Live to prevent any further downloads. Our plan is to replace it with a new file as soon as possible. We hope to have another update for you shortly."

A video showing some of the bugs in question is available on YouTube [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QZ_j9A2uO8].

No problems for me, I had no plans to get it before Wednesday. Hopefully it will be fixed by then. Shows that even big guys aren't safe from a little(ok ,big) fuck up. Cool bug btw.

Interesting. So would the 'corruption' have been caused (or possibly caused) by the file compression Bethesda were presumably forced to use?

Odd that the Live marketplace would have such an arbitrary limit on it's downloads.

Damn it I bought this from work this morning so it would be ready when I got home.

Oh well, more time to finish some other things first I guess.

The DLC has been pulled from the marketplace.

Now Ive bought it but not downloaded it, they have taken my points for it so will I get to download it for free when it comes back?

Hmm we will have to wait and see I guess

The exclamation marks are gonna be a Bethesda bug now? They (though black) were in Oblivion when lighting was meesed up. I assume these also have to do with lighting. I am waiting for all the DLC to come out then do it all at once.

The PC version isn't perfect either. I seem to be having an increased amount of crashes since I downloaded it.
