If you're playing Fallout: New Vegas on the PS3, your confrontation with the Burned Man is going to have to wait a while.
The latest piece of Fallout: New Vegas DLC, Honest Hearts, was supposed to be a simultaneous release across PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. Unfortunately, thanks to the recent trouble with Sony's PlayStation Network, Bethesda has had to amend that plan.
Honest Hearts tells the story of a bitter conflict between a New Canaanite missionary, and the legendary Burned Man. Both men are fighting over Zion, a valley that was spared the horrors of the war, and is almost untouched by the desolation that marks the rest of the Mojave. If you're playing on a PC or Xbox 360, then you can play this new content today. But if you're playing on PS3, then you're going to have to wait, and Bethesda doesn't know for how long, as it depends on how long it takes Sony to restore the PSN Store. Bethesda says it will let PS3 owners know when it has more information.
Even with PSN up and running again, the outage is going to have a long tail and Sony is going to be handling the repercussions for weeks, if not months, to come. It's only natural that there will be some disruptions and delays as Sony gets its house back in order, but hopefully they won't be for too long.
