Speaking to VG247 this morning, Bethesda's Peter Hines has said that Fallout 3's DLC will be coming to PC as well as 360.
I noticed the slight twist you pulled on the title :/
Yeah tell me about it lol. Not to mention Microsoft paid for the exclusive DLC. -___-
Exactly. It was thing to do the. Because MS probably paid about 50 mil to aquire this.
“We felt [PC and 360 exclusivity] was the right thing to do for Fallout 3.” is what he said.
Its amazing how money can sway some of the industries most smartest people into nothing but tools.
This DLC is more than likely not to be free but still it's a nice choice to have when you have completed fallout 3 and seen all the 200 endings it has...
Completly nonsense! This is not nothing right to do! I think every gamer has the right of playing this DLC! Unless be honest and said that this DLC was a deal whith MS!
I don't know about you guys, but I don't care about DLC at all. I mean I got GTA4 for 360, but I AM NOT going to buy the DLC. What's the point of buying a game for £40 and then having to pay for DLC? Completely not worth buying.
twisting titles like you did should result in a temporary ban imo....
its not 200 endings, its 500 endings........finish the game 500 times to get every achievements, thats soooooooooooo overkill *.*
Why does it seem that Microsoft constantly "donates" money for exclusive DLC on the games that need it the least? I'm sorry but GTA4? I highly doubt the statistics will prove that to have worked out for the DLC considering the game was boring/reptitive/looked like crap in some areas/etc. etc. Now this Fallout 3 game? The game is 100+ hours long, has multiple endings out the wazooo and now they're buying dlc for it? Give me a break this game IS dlc...man microsoft are some idiots don't they see all they're doing is iritating us with all the money they throw out? it's not going to make me buy and xbox 360 because you keep buying all the DLC it's going to make me kill your boss.
I wonder what would happen if M$ ran out of money.. that is actually quite ingenious(for M$, not the consumer).. ship the 360 with small hard drives, buy all the content you possibley can, make them fill up those small hard drives, make them buy bigger hard drives to download more stuff, hmm..
yea who didnt notice that... Trying to start a freaking forest fire.
oops sry my bad xP This DLC doesn't bother me at all though but if at some random point they would choose to make achievements for the Xbox360 and skip trophies for the PS3, THEN! There would be hell to pay for both M$ and Bethesda!
And how do you experts with your insider knowledge know M$ paid for this? Talk about grasping at straws. Are you that desperate that you have to attack. You have a good game on the ps3 to play now, play it and stop showing your insecurities.
Nice headline VG247, like how you've twisted it. Very smart.... Perhaps blocking VG247 from N4G is the "right thing to do".
yeah i slight twist on the title... back on topic...bethesda had a few problems with DLC for Oblivion (is shiviering ilse out yet even?) so im not really suprised they left out the ps3 as "the right thing to do"
Shivering Isles has been on the PSN since last November ;) I don't live in europe.
twist ? i dont care about the DLC but isnt that what he basically said ? he should just have choosen his word a bit more carefully .
I DONT WANT DLC FOR A 100 HOUR GAME!
The game is still coming to the ps3 and I think 100+ hours of gameplay for this game is enough. Wont be needing extra DLC.
tell that to the people that play Oblivion
u guys said the same thing about GTA4, and I got alot of friends that bought that game and yet, they are all back to playing call of duty 4, gears of war, halo 3. I dont think the DLC will be as important as u 360 only owners are making it out to be. It is a big deal to u guys but u gotta remember there are other big games coming around that same time aswell.
if thats the case then the Oblivion DLC wouldn't of been the hit that it was, the same will go for Fallout 3
Not sure how much I'll care. I still own both Oblivion and GTA, yet I haven't been bothered to beat either yet. Seems to me, personally, if the game isn't MGS, then it will be pushed aside a month or so later for a better game anyways. Still, it can't be the "right thing to do," when clearly it's just because money changed hands.
Lol, clearly is it? Where? how do you know? Is that what happened with £ony and alone in the dark? They paid for it? Of course as soon as £ony go back to their old ways and paying for extras (they did don't act like they never) then it will be fine.
I have played Oblivion MANY times, and the addition of the DLC like KotN were a very welcome addition to the game. So, if Fallout 3 has DLC like KotN, then it may be worth the purchase..
hey this is nothing to brag about but i had over 120 hours in oblivion. i cant beleive my xbox held out for that long lol. but it was an amazing game. unfortunately i sold it before shivering isles came out.
What? that's unfair... PS3 get no love at all >_< Guess need to make-do without DLC
Ay...zealots from both MS and Sony will come in here not reading the article, and knowing the situation, will start their usual nonsense banter. MS: "LOL PS3 CAN'T HANDLE IT! D3LAYSTATION" SONY: "LOL MS HAS TO PAY FOR MORE DLC CUZ THEY KNOW NO ONE WOULD EVEN THINK ABOUT BUYING IT OTHERWISE!!" God....another day of N4G..it's too early for this.
You're absolutely right! Bubbles for you for being a non-biased gamer;)
bang on the money mate
O well at least you guys get to play the game. Im going to purchase the full console fallout 3 experience.
and I am going to get the full experience with user mods. free. on the pc. PIRACY FTW again.
FTW....I like that. Thank God it works on the 360 too...just no mods :) If M$ wants to be greedy then thats what they get. I still can't help but wonder why Sony keeps getting beat to the punch on this stuff. They have been in the business longer and should have learned after GTA IV.
"I still can't help but wonder why Sony keeps getting beat to the punch on this stuff. They have been in the business longer and should have learned after GTA IV." What they learned is that why spend tons of money for another empty promise and they can accumulate the same if not slightly less amount of sales upon the games release.
Whether or not you agree with Bethesda's decision to leave PS3 out of the loop on Fallout DLC, Piracy is a cancer on the industry. I've got more respect for that soccer mom from Nintendo's E3 conference than for game pirates.
"PIRACY FTW again" Hmm, do you ever wonder why PC gaming is dying? You're ruining it.. Good job. -.-
true. pc gaming is dead now because of stingy people like you.
Ugh.. Why did I get 3 disagrees and The wombat got 5 agrees..? Whatever..
Right for who?
I would rather buy it for the PS3 since durring the last game by them, Oblivion my Xbox 360 puked out on me in the middle of the campaign. I would like to finish this game without having to send in my console for repairs.
how someone disagreed with you on not wanting to wait until your brick got repaired to finish oblivion. Little fanboys....
Yeah, you could put I love my mom in the text and you would get some silly disagree nazi hitting the dis button. Some folks here are just pathetic. My guess is, it won't be long before we both have a few more disagrees. lol
I agreed with all of you just to make you feel better.
Thanks Rob! Here, I agree with you too! lol
That way I can make sure I get the best multiplatform game. Look like an Xbox 360 version is the one to get. Cause both games are going look about the same. And with a HDTV, it really do not matter what system you buy a game for, when it comes to graphics.
While most of your comment I agree with, the part that doesn't make sense is you saying they both look the same so the 360 version is the one to get. In my opinion, the PC Version is the one to get because you have more mods and more dlc than either of the consoles.
oblivion had some sweet mods on the pc. Plus pc games are free.
I don't think it's fair to assume he'll have a computer that can run it. Gaming PC's aren't cheap, especially when compared to non-gaming pc's. Also, game pirates are scum. If a game is good you should support it.
INFIDELS ! yes my fellow 360ian laugh all u want , no one can blame u , ur fighting a winning battle with the support of the holy non satanic Microsoft , we must kill those infidels known as droids ! INFIDELS ! X360 FTW
Article POSTED by an XBOT trying to cause trouble. Headline is CONFIRMED to be fake. I have the article right here and it does not say that Bethesa considered blocking DLC for PS3 to be the best thing to do! "Todd Howard used the word “substantial” to describe the additional content at E3, where he also said it would be 360-exclusive. Hines told us, though, that the PC version would be getting the DLC as well. “DLC is going to be exclusive to the PC and 360, not just 360,” he said. “Every platform has its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to DLC, and I assure you we are intimately aware of every technical, business, and fan-service aspect when it comes to DLC and any given platform. “We felt [PC and 360 exclusivity] was the right thing to do for Fallout 3.”" NOTICE HOW IT DOES NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE PS3. XBOT WHO POSTED THIS, DELIBERATELY MADE THAT SPIN TO STIR. XBOTS IN DAMAGE CONTROL MODE AFTER LAST E3. SO BEWARE.
haha Silly Nasim you are the one with 50 accounts that is ALWAYS in damage control. PS3 fails bro. PS3 can't even get DLC for thhe years biggest RPG. PS3 sucks at EVERYTHING.
just cuz ps3 lost FF 1,000 dosen't mean u got to hate it. damn i always owned PS consoles and i never bought a FF game NEVER.
"Bethesda's Peter Hines told VG247 today that blocking PS3 DLC for Fallout 3 was the "right thing to do"." -Cuz M$ made us too or we would not get that HUGE WAD OF CASH!!!!!! "just cuz ps3 lost FF 1,000 dosen't mean u got to hate it. damn i always owned PS consoles and i never bought a FF game NEVER.' -M$ buying a copy isnt Loseing. sure u get a inferior veriosn thats not winning. and dont u know FF is KOOLZ againz its on teh~XBOX~ wrpg>>>Jprpg and all that crap.... @ above oh u brainless xbots, yes PS3 will be less thx to XBOX's inferiorness once again. what else is new? .... but hey PC>>xbox so bla~
With this news I am getting the superior version.PC Mod support FTW
Actually, if you watch the E3 MicroSoft Press Event again, they do only mention the DLC coming to PC and 360, no mention of the PS3, and I do believe the guy said "exclusively to 360 and PC." But, not for sure..
INFIDELS ! yes its the right thing to do my fellow loyal 360ians those army of infidels known as droids dont deserve the full experience they should burn in hell with satan and sony INFIDELS ! X360 FTW
Tell the doctors to up your meds...
All i know is that Fall out 3 is one of my most anticipated games this year and if it turns out to live up to my aspirations i'll be more than happy to Expand the exp with dlc. The 360/MS just keep on finding the cards to play to keep all 360 owners on the ship and happy. So happy infact that right now Lbp is the only upcoming game that i want a Ps3 for. Gotta give it to them they are playing a great game so far said it before but i really never thought i'd own a 360 over a ps3 this gen. Then again never thought i'd own a playstation over the saturn. Gotta move with the times i guess. How did things change so quickly/drastically? Money i guess.
He didn't even say that, in any case if the DLC turns out to be actually exclusive. ..lost a sale.
Yep. I guess what PS3 owners should do is not to buy the PS3 version (or any other) at all. That would would be a nice middle finger in Bethesda's face. If that was the case you can be sure it would stop beying "the right thing to do".
it will only hurt Sony and their relations with the Devs. sooner or later Devs will only be making games on the 360 if you wanna boycott everything. The competition is Stiff and it seems like MS is pulling out all the right cards.
That if all the PS3 owners boycotted the game, that would only convince Bethesda to spend even less effort on the PS3 for their next game. If (and this is entirely impossible, but bear with me for the sake of argument) they sold 0 copies of Fallout 3 on PS3 because people were boycotting the game, they wouldn't waste the time, money, and effort on making their next game on PS3 and risk selling 0 copies again. However if Fallout 3 comes out, and (once again, not at all likely, but bear with me) outsells the 360 version 3:1, you had better believe they'll put a ton of effort into developing content for the PS3 version of Fallout 3, as well as their future games. Developers (as well as everyone else) go where the money is. I agree that the content should not be exclusive to any one system, but sales will be the primary motivation for whether that remains the case or changes, not boycotts.
