No Fallout 3 DLC on PS3 until September

Postby JimSteele » 14 Jul 2009, 11:01

I'm glad that the DLC is going to be cross-platform, it was a f**king liberty that it wasn't in the first place and PS3 owners had every right to feel cheated. Sort it out, Bethesda.

timed exclusives never sell well when they release on the other platform!!! this has to be the worst game ever made in terms of bugs!! not to mention nearly evey DLC has had to be pulled from sale because they didnt work!!

Very poor development team i have to say!!!

Might as well wait for the GOTY edition now. Supposed to be released around that sort of time anyway.

Someone hasn't played Daggerfall...

Seriously though, Bethesda have come a long way with quality control. Fallout 3 is actually a pretty polished product compared even to Oblivion, which was far more glitchy in my experience.

Indeed, 31st October I believe. It's what i'm waiting for. Been wanting to play Fallout 3 more than any other game but the GOTY edition is such good value i'm forcing myself to wait.

The GOTY edition would be the way to go in my opinion, especially if you haven't play it at all yet...

I thought Anchorage was a really poor choice for a stand alone episode, yet if it was "just" another mission in the main game, it probably would of been much better received for it's change of scenery and combat heavy nature...

Even amoungst the other DLC I think it'll fare better than having it as an epsiode.

Totally agree - exclusive DLC is a f*cking joke.
I'd be p*ssed if I was a GTA IV PS3 owner too.

No different than actual game timed exclusives either. Sony had the upper hand on that situation for years. It's nice to know that Microsoft stuck it to them this generation.

Doesn't really bother me that much, I have PS3, 360 and Wii. So I get the game on he format that will offer me the most. Needless to say Fallout 3 and GTA IV got purchased on the 360.

As for the bugs. I don't think I came across any real problems while playing Fallout 3. It is easily one of the best games I played last year and still this year. It's so engrossing.
