Borderlands patch restores skill points and Achievements

A new Borderlands update is available on Xbox 360 (with a PS3 version coming soon). The patch fixes a number of issues, the most serious problems affecting skill points, Achievements and Trophies. Some players have encountered glitches that made them lose skill points, while others have had trouble unlocking Gamerscore  even after successfully completing an Achievement. Thankfully, the patch should  award players their rightfully earned skill points.
