Fallout 3's Pitt pulled from Marketplace, back tomorrow [update]


Fallout 3 players have made the lives of uncreative and unnecessarily snarky writers into a living hell this morning, prompting internet blabbermouths to try their hardest not to describe the RPG's latest round of DLC as "the pits." Because it's called "The Pitt" and some people are quite unhappy about it, you see.

Lodging complaints via emails to Joystiq and developer Bethesda's official forums, users who have downloaded the latest $10 add-on from Xbox Live are apparently experiencing numerous glitches in the game's environment, including freezes and texture errors. Another issue seems to be represented by ominous, floating exclamation marks invading the post-apocalyptic wasteland. Bethesda has told Joystiq that it is currently gathering information on the issue -- we'll update as soon as we know how widespread the problems are and what measures can be taken to avoid them.

In the meantime, we suggest you adopt a stealthy approach and avoid being spotted by the malfunctioning landscape.

Update: Bethesda is "continuing to look into the issues people are experiencing with The Pitt for Xbox 360." The company believes that the English version of the file on Xbox Live has become corrupted, and is working with Microsoft to remove and replace the file as soon as possible. Update 2: Bethesda expects the corrected file to be available for download tomorrow, March 25.
