    I don't recall any... probably not any more or less than normal for a PC game. The PS3 version might have, it wasn't ported very well.

    Thanks,I was wondering because I read a lot of the NV previews,and a few of them mention fr issues. I didn't play FO3 (360) until months after release,and there was never any fr issues.

    PC wise it's actually kinda random. If you read the tech forums on the Beth site a lot of people still have framerate problems despite having perfectly decent rigs.
    Card drivers and the patches are some of the culprits as one of the patches actually made it worse for some people.
    The PS3 did have a few problems at launch as well but not sure on that now.
    Both the 360 and PS3 were reported to have framerate issues at launch.

    When i played it the game ran fine. Perfectly smooth. I had a friend with a almost identical rig except for a different graph card (Still more than capable) and his dropped to 1 or 2 FPS every 30 seconds.

    Just for a second, but it was enough to make the game very annoying to play.
