Fallout 3 patch fixes freezing and introduces Trophies

There were a lot of unsatisfied gamers when the announcement came about in regards to the lack of Trophy support within Fallout 3. On top of this disappointing news, Bethesda shipped the title for the PlayStation 3 with a boatload of problems, the most prominent of which concerned various freezing issues.
As many of you may have experienced, any time a network notification pops up, some users were experiencing freeze-up. This is hardly the type of gameplay players expected from PSU's Reader's Choice Award for Best RPG. Unfortunately, it was a problem that they had to deal with.
Thankfully a patch has been released in Europe and North America that corrects this issue. Not only that, but the patch also introduces Trophy support to a game that quite frankly should have supported it from the get-go.
We're unsure at the time of writing whether the Trophies are retroactive or not. Stay tuned.

Thank you!! I'm finally going to start playing this game now that the trophy patch is out (as well as the bug fixes).

This is one of the best games I've played in a long time, and I had to stop because the bugs just got to be too much (and I got Dead Space). I'm really looking forward to completing this, now!
It's too bad the trophies are not retroactive, but I'm only 60 hours in so I might as well restart.

@ 5 I did the game in 35 hours and i almost did all sidequests... At the begening, I were hoping for a 100h of gameplay... just like oblivion ! But that was a really good game!

psn id: gingo.... its good that they have been quick to fix this and add trophys, unfortunately its taken a patch to get the game to a standard that it should have been at when it was released which is the case with too many games this year

@ 8: Agreed to many studios are getting complacent with the fact that they can just release and fix it later with patches instead of getting it right the first time. What do the consumers do that don't have access to internet or is limited and expensive?

even with this patch the game is still better on the 360, i tell u. i have both consoles, so i'm no fanboy. there r still framerate and texure issues that can't be fixed with in a patch. i don't know what the f*** is wrong with bethesda. oblivion was so much better on the ps3. i was kinda hoping this will be too cause i wanted to get it for the ps3 .360 isn't for rpgs anyway

Annoyingly the trophies are not retroactive (So far atleast).

Thankfully, I've been to busy playing Resistance 2, but now at least when I put Fallout 3 in my PS3 I can start the game with the patch and trophy support. I guess good things do come to those who wait.

Yes! I just hope trophies are retro-active... Although I'm really early into the game anyway, so if I have to start over it's not a huge deal.
