At the E3 Media and Business Summit last week, Bethesda Softworks said it would be bringing Fallout 3 downloadable content exclusively to Xbox 360 and Windows, leaving buyers of the PS3 version out of luck as far as extra content is concerned.
So i'll buy it for PC...whats the big deal?
DLC is not the same as a full game and it can hardly be compared to a full game. You have some extra DLC but noone cares when you can have stuff like Resistance 2, LBP, Motorstorm and more. Why would you pick anything else. These games are only on PS3.
Yea for pc owners its not big deal. Ps3 owners are screwed. And angryxbot its not ment to win the console war. Its ment to annoy ps3 owners by not letting them enjoy the full experience.
Does that sound like a good business strategy to you though? Spend money to annoy potential customers? It seems pretty childish and stupid to me. Why pay to alienate people who might of got a 360 in the future?
SORRY tell you as of 2001, there are more computer then people on this world. So FallOUT3 or Alan Wake is no big lost for any one, and everyone will get to play it. And i can't see the system requirement being crazy like crysis.
The exclusive DLC is horse armor.
The exclusive content has a weapon that has PS3 shaped objects the gamers throws in FO and the enemies flock to it then it explodes.
explodes? Pog, you must be talking about 360 since it is the only defective console capable of doing such massive damage.
As far as DLC thus far it always seems tacked on and at a very high price. Games are expensive enough.
That is why I hate buying some games. For example GTAIV. Basically the are not releasing the full version of the game, because they already announce that their will be download contents you have to pay for before the game is release.
Am I going to care about DLC after spending 100+ hours or so playing Fallout 3? Probably not.
i love oblivion and still play it; but i never bought any dlc for it. there's plenty of game on the disc.
They could fit this "DLC" on the blueray disk if they wanted to. It would be extremly nice and awkward for microsoft if they did.
But then it wouldn't be DLC would it? If Microsoft wants to keep throwing money at "exclusive DLC" so they can have another bullet point that's their business, but it's just not going to make me buy a game for the 360 over the PS3 - if I didn't think the game was going to be adequately entertaining without additional content I wouldn't buy it in the first place. And if I have to choose which console I'm going to get a multi-plat on, assuming it's not a crappy port, if I'm honest I'm most likely going to get it for the PS3 - I like the controller and the PS3 doesn't sound like a jet taxiing through my living room - which I like.
Bribe much M$?
not Bribe... Microsoft didn't ask Bethesda to cut the game content and make that content exclusive to the xbox 360... Microsoft simply paid Bethesda to make "extra" content for the xbox 360 gamers... This is the same as the GTA4 DLC nothing to do with the game... the game was not cut... as matter of fact... Sony can tell Bethesda to make DLC too... nothing stops them from doing that? But.. that's not their policy.. they do not pay for exclusive... in other words... you get what developers want to give you.. nothing more or nothing less.. you losers sony leg humpers twist things around... you rather believe that the game is being cut down and some is being made exclusive when in reality if microsoft wouldn't pay for the exclusive content.. developers would simply not bother making it... Sony does not think their fans are worth paying to add extra content... Microsoft this gen is trying very hard to offer extra content for games that may be multiplatform.. I am not going to b!tch about that.. since I am not in the other camp... as you Sony leg humpers...
You're making Microsoft sound like Saints, spending their money to bring the goods but, at the end of the day, who's going to be paying for it? The end user. If you're paying more, it's only fair you get more out of it. The PS3 is more expensive, but has more out of the box. 360 games are more expensive with the DLC, so by rights, should be more content
Anyway.Looks like DLC for games sells very well on xbox live. Looking at the posts above me its pretty clear that DLC on PSN would flop big time. That said , I dont buy DLC.I dont have much time to play videogames because of studies so I just try to finish a game as fast as I can.No side quests , no nothing.Straight to the finish line.
Don't speak again or I might hate you to death. But seriously. What made Fallout cool was the highly detailed gameplay mechanics and extensive story(That was more the case for fallout 2). However given the FPSish perspective change the old gameplay is mostly gone, so we will see. P.S. I rank fallout 2 amongst the top 3 games ever made.
I'm looking forward to you explaining why exactly it would flop on PSN. can't wait to see what you pull out of your ass.
i can understand if you don't want to pay for dlc, but to blow through a game as fast as you can? how is that enjoyable?
well i didnt play any of the dlc for oblivion so i mite get it for my ps3 because cant be assed with RROD again.
No matter what DLC is coming for a game on the 360 PS3 fans find a way to diss it or whatever.Thers DLC coming for NG2 , 25 new missons and PS3 fans STILL find a way to be unhappy about it. I mean how can you find a way to diss the fact that a game is getting the equivalent of a whole solo campaign to download ??? What DLC do you guys actually want ? Thats why I said DLC would probably flop on PSN since whenever exclusive DLC comes out, we get the same old "anyway , who cares bla bla bla"
No , what I mean is in a game like FF for instance , I wont do any side quests or only vey few.I wont spend too much time either talking to peole in villages etc.Just do the essential. Them main plot is what interests me.If I want to play more than one game per semester I dont really have the choice.
Hope it's better than horse armor
maybe a coat for your dog?
At least those that have just a 360 wont have to "wait" for DLC
It's obvious that Microsoft paid for the DLC. Fallout 3 was a part of Microsoft's Conference at E3 and they made the announcement of the Fallout 3 DLC for the 360 at E3 during Microsoft's conference, so it's obvious Microsoft just dished out money for it. What is the point of Microsoft buying exclusive DLC for 3rd party games anyways? I mean, Microsoft didn't sell more 360 hardware just because of the GTA4 DLC and they wont sell anymore 360 hardware with Fallout 3 DLC, the only thing Microsoft is doing is pleasing it's own customers with DLC. Well, I guess Microsoft has hardly any first party studios to spend money on, so they can go wasting it away on 3rd party. I'm glad Sony is using their money the right way and is putting their money towards the numerous Exclusive PS3 projects that wont appear on the Xbox 360 or PC. Exclusive DLC is great, but it doesn't sell more hardware and I think that Sony figured that out after Microsoft's bid for GTA4 DLC failed to sell a substantial amount 360 consoles.
Just because they loaned money to rockstar, key word loaned for dlc doesn't mean they paid everyone off. Third party devs are making a killing off dlc on xbox live, but that couldnt possibly have anything to do with it (sarcasm). I think the big problem with dlc on the ps3 is that you have to use a credit card, alot of people aren't able or comfortable doing so. Especially when you call sony support and they have a spiel about psn being compromised.
Seriously, they could buy a studio for all the money they are spending on exclusive content and time exclusives. Dont get me wrong it´s a great thing for the 360, but in the long haul it would have been better spent on a studio..
It's because 3-5 years from now. Microsoft is gonna yield to the console wars and quite the industry all together. Their only iteration that we'll get will undoubtedly be from games like Age of Empires Word War or the likes. In anycase, blah blah blah... i'll pull more facts out my ass.... blah blah blah... - La Chance ------- On another note, maybe it's money that's the only reason M$ is actually getting games? Did you ever think of it like that?
think about it, dlc on xbox live makes alot of money, on psn it hasn't yet (probably because they require a credit card).
Not all of Sonys new & upcoming "exclusives" will be big hits & become franchises & become hits with gamers. Quality over Quantity is what Sony seems to be forgetting
no game will last forever, you have to make sure you have something to play next. and regardless of whether they are "big hitters" or not, you can't lie and say they don't all look promising. besides last year all(or most) of Microsoft's games delivered so what's stopping Sony.
i'd rather be playing multiple new franchises like LBP, heavy rain, wardevil, infamous, LA noire....etc.... than playing some dlc for games that i've already played to death.
Why is it people think every good announcement of MS having something exclusive from a third party gotta lead to MS paying someone off? I know they do pay some of these companies off. But people think they throw money at everything! Keep in mind that games aren't as cheap to make as they used to be, so these companies are looking to make money from every angle they can. So true, MS probably paid this and other companies to put exclusive content on their system! Also, SquareEnix may have looked at the slightly smaller installed base of Ps3 and realized they need to get as much money out of the game as possible! Why does this bother fanboys so much when something gets announced for 360? Keep in mind that Ps3 owners get something 360 owners can't... User created content(Unreal 3, LBP)! So when they announce something like this... you shouldn't feel threatened, it's just evening things out!
I just think that MS seems to have been doing it more than Sony this generation. And there´s nothing wrong with that, i just think they could have taken all the money they have spent on that and bought an studio instead.
100 hour RPG does not need DLC. Hell I have that clocked on Oblivion and I haven't touched the main story yet.
DLC won't bother me. By the time these things come out i would have moved on to bigger and better things. I wont go back to playing gta only cause rockstar has release some dlc. I probably will be playing something much bigger and better.
Just like the GTA 4 360 dlc don't care, now fallout 3 dlc also don't care. These games are so big it really doesn't really matter your getting extra crap you don't need. I'm happy with GTA 4 for the ps3 it has better graphics so go ps3 version. The fallout 3 dlc is going to be coming out in probably like a year after fallout 3. So by the time it comes around everyone will be doing much better things.
While this might be good news for PC and 360 gamers, I think it's bad news for consumer all around. DLC is getting out of hand. Weird, but EA and Criterion offered alot of DLC for free for their game Burnout Paradise. What I mean is, if this was universal, they could offer it for a small fee or none @ all, but I'm pretty sure it'll cost more than a l'il bit. I'm sure the same goes for the GTA4 content. Also, if a game is incomplete before the DLC, then nobody should buy that content (like the weapons EA was holding out for DLC on Battlefield).
Yes I agree. DLC is the sorry excuse for developers to milk more money out of consumers for something that should have been included in the game to begin with. The only time DLC makes sense is if it's for new multiplayer maps. But charging DLC for a weapon or clothes is just plain milking it. Those should just be free if they insist on it being downloaded later.
DLC would be great. Just as long as it's not "Horse Armor" again lol.
it caused a revolt in favor for the 360 version but at the end everybody said "meh" but it was too late
Horse Armor. 'Nuff said. Think about it folks; no DLC can be that signifigant to screw with the story too much, or the endings wouldn't make sense. Plus, the DLC for GTA is, at this point, vaporware. If the GTA DLC is pathetic and/or overpriced, then M$ will the laughing stock of the industry.
Yeah Bethesda screwed up big time with their first DLC release. But all their subsequent DLC for Oblivion was brilliant. Mehrunes' Razor, Knights of the Nine, Fighter's Stronghold and the Shivering Isles were all brilliant and well-received additions to Oblivion. You really need to do your homework before chirping in,
as long as they can say exclusive and Exclusivity.. I think MS is going to end up buying these words.. Every multi plat game, MS has to have exclusive DLC now. And every third party game the ps3 has microsoft has to go after it so they can say its not exclusive to the ps3 anymore.. I dont even think MS or the developlers know what exclusive DLC will be added to the games when they make these deals. MS probably just says here is a check make some exclusive stuff for our game.. Dev's are probably like no, than they look at the check and say nevermind we will think of something... lol.. Than MS says to everyone WE HAVE EXCLUSIVE DLC!!!!
When you really didn't. HaHa DLC doesn't compare to the actual game, but it makes the game a lot more kickass, I mean look at the GTAIV DLC...........oh wait you guys got jipped outta that too..damn.
Yeah... where is that GTAIV DLC? Ooh, still not out? Are people still playing GTAIV? I gave up on that before I even finished the story.
So why would I buy extra content of the same old crap I have been playing for 100 hours...So do you 360 fans still beleave you got the full GTA4 experiance even though 95 percent of all gamer's never get a 100 percent complete on just the retail package alone...extra content is just a way for M$ to nickel and dime the blind...I guess fallout3 extra content will be release what NOV2010 and be adverstise as the complete package.....I guess it's good for you 360 fans since exclusive content is becoming less and less these days since every 3rd party going multi and only Sony has the big 1st party lineup..Gears3 on PS3, cant' wait
ugh, microsoft makes me sick...
@Maulesnhaummer: I HAVE gotten the expansions on the PC (two of them, at least), and they weren't all that, and like I said, they added NOTHING to the main story. It's impossible for them to without screwing up the game for those who don't shell out for the DLC. Hey but don't be ashamed....I know you're part of the M$ defense league, so I know you have your obligations to fill and duties to perform. By the way, aren't your club dues coming up? $50 a year, if I'm not mistaken. ;^) 'Nuff said.
OMG I love the Pipboy! Those retro cartoony graphics are awesome!
360 version for me then.
yall folls know you want that download content for the BS3
