According to CVG, a September 9 date for Fallout 3 sent to retailers by Sony isn't correct.
"September 9 isn't the release date," said Bethesda's Pete Hines. "The release date is Fall 2008. Until you see something official from us on when the game will be out, take any date you see from anyone with large grains of salt."
At present the RPG is put down for a Q3 release with the Ps3, 360 and PC versions all shipping simultaneously.
