Jordan Lund examines the recent content downloads for Fallout 3, why the PS3 isn't seeing any patches or expansions, and predicts when PlayStation 3 owners will see Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and Broken Steel - in a seperate Fallout 3 "Game of the Year" edition.
Excerpt: "So, hey, you say to yourself, fourteen cents isn't that big of a deal. Until you realize that there are potentially more than a million downloaders. That $0.14 rapidly balloons to $194,600 if all 1.39 million PS3 players download both updates. Even if we're to be conservative and say that only 500,000 people download both packages, that still represents an extra $70,000 to be carried by Bethesda.
In the face of this, there is simply no incentive for developers to release their products for download on the PS3: better to wait and do a "Game of the Year" package or something similar and avoid losing profits and dev costs to what is effectively a "download tax" that is not attached on competing platforms - in the meantime forcing game owners to pay for another full game that includes the extra content."
