No Fallout 3 Patch For 360/PC Says Bethesda

Torrence Davis of The Bitbag writes, "There's been a huge misunderstanding about Fallout 3 and the ability to go back and play unfinished quests after the DLC has been applied to your 360 or PC. Apparently, gaming blog Next Gen News credited MTV Multiplayer with the info, but made it sound like there's actually a patch coming to the 360 or PC. There is no patch at all, it's just a part of the DLC functionality."

I've said it once but i'll say it again sense i own the version there are not supporting anymore im going to download the PC version free of charge being that i've already paid my money for a game they don't want anything to do with (im talking about the ps3 version)

rroded3489d ago

Tho my pc doesnt run as well as the ps3...
still at least i get the dlc n whatever mods have been made for it.

Sad to see em sell out like this after they did such a fine job w/Oblivion on the ps3.

LeonSKennedy4Life3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

I don't know.

I'll probably buy the PC version too. They didn't abandon us. They were just offered money. We all need money, right?

tda-danny3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Doesn't matter is they were or were not offered money. They put out an adiquate PS3 game and called it a day, while they continue to support the other 2 versions.

After I bought Oblivion for the PS3 (goty ed.) and say that they would not add any of the Xbox's dlc, and that they would not patch the glitch which made the vampire quest undo-able (you are stuck as a vamp if you turn into one), I decided not to support Bethesda with fallout. I'm playing the superior PC version... if ya know what I mean.

Meaning I borrowed it from a friend who didn't like it... /sheeesh

Poor reasoning and shame on you 1.0 & 1.1 for downloading the game illegally. Sorry your butt hurts but you should have known. This is old news presented as new. I'm not here to say I told you so, but rather it is bad on your part to claim naivety and then justify a trip to pirate bay.

DavidMacDougall3489d ago

I had my PS3 a year before this game was out its BS that they should just turn there back on after releasing a broken unfinished game on it there no better than EA and that whole Orange Box BS!

Im not paying again for this game

TruthBTold3489d ago

LOL, yeah I think I should get the PC version too. I heard it can be very inexpensive *wink wink*. That way I can make sure I can get the DLC. I think I will be getting PC versions *wink wink* of Bethesda games in the future since I know it will be supported with any DLC they might decide to make. And PC versions are always cheaper *wink wink* than console versions.

tda-danny3489d ago

Now your seeing what I'm sayin'

Neurotoxin3489d ago

I hate piracy, but you have a good point there mate. You`ve already paid for it so why not download it, If you buy the game on the PS3 you are basically subsidizing the DlC on 360 and PC.... Its disgraceful, Plus the game is STILL full of bugs and critical System breaking problems, well at least the PS3 version.

Enjoy your Pirated copy, **** Bethesda.

yanikins1113489d ago

this is one instance that i support piracy. If your gonna try and ar$3rape the consumer, then dont be suprised when they knee you in the groin.

dredgewalker3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Ive already said i will not buy the Fallout 3 game..........therefore i will go the *wink wink* route....i wanted a legit way of playing this but since theyre just gonna screw me then to hell to with purchasing copies of their games. Im going to save my money and buy the games of deserving developers.

It's funny because it got all the Xbox 360 and PC gamers excited... Then BAM, it's shattered in there face.

panasonic233489d ago

it's funny the ps3 owners still b!tching because Bethesda said fvck you..... Bam in you're face ahahahhahahhhhaahh

Kyur4ThePain3489d ago

Bethesda need gamers more than gamers need Bethesda.

pwnsause3489d ago

it's funny the ps3 owners still b!tching because Bethesda said fvck you..... Bam in you're face ahahahhahahhhhaahh"

or because they accepted the money that microsoft offered to keep the DLC under their platforms you dumb, just as how R* accepted $50 million from them for Exclusive DLC which made them close down 2 studios already.

CaptainKratos3489d ago

i was sooo thinking i was going to be able to play my side missions after the main story...i was so piss wrong. :(

Unicron3489d ago

Once again, I think exclusive DLC on a multiplatform release is a kick to the nuts of fans of any franchise in question. You're basically saying "you're money isn't good enough even though you were kind enough to support us, get lost."

Sad, sad trend here.

Megaton3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

Completely agreed. I'm against all exclusive DLC, aside from pointless crap like skins. It's a huge slap in the face to those who own the platform that gets shafted. It essentially puts a value on your fanbase, making one group appear more important than the other.

dragunrising3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

@ 4 & 4.1- I am not for exclusive downloadable content yet I knew the PC and 360 versions would have DLC exclusive. Don't you think its a bit naive to say that you didn't know? This article is new however it was known a lot time ago this would be the case.u

Edit: I am getting Mirror's Edge for the PS3 on account it has an exclusive downloadable map. Exclusive DLC motivates multiconsole owners to get the version that has it; not in every case yet it is compelling.

Unicron3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

It's not a matter of not knowing. I purchased my PS3 long before any exclusive DLC was announced. Again, I'm a Fallout fan who purchased a PS3 because it suited my gaming needs. The 360 did not. So why should I be DENIED the DLC available to other Fallout fans?

Update - Sure, but what of single console owners? Why should they be denied if they have access to the game? It makes it feel "incomplete" and is, I feel, a snub to fans.

Megaton3489d ago

Where did I say I didn't know? I heard it at Microsoft's E3 presentation like everyone else, but I'm not gonna go out and spend $300 on a new console so I can play the extended version of one game, no matter how much I like it.

I hate it when a multiplat title is fragmented for the sake of corporate competition. A large chunk of fans always lose.

You forget that M$ payed for the DLC, as Sony did not.

It's just business.

IdleLeeSiuLung3489d ago

I must agree with Jaces and Unicron above. Unfortunately, it is a side effect of the way the business works.

Multiplatform games should have multiplatform DLC, but that practically won't happen....
