You might think to yourselves, dear PS3 owners, that you've waited long enough and want to buy that DLC right away. But not so fast!
Fallout 3 best non-ninja game in next gen.
I foresee a few disagrees in your future... but not from me at least.
Well obviously I'm not going to disagree lol!
Ya know, I really liked the game but PS3 owners kinda get shafted with the DLC. I think we should just not buy it out of spite.
Game of the Year edition would be great for christmas. They get to sell the game through 2 holidays instead of just 1.
I don't think I could wait to play the DLC even though we had to wait this long for it to come out in the first place. I want it asap.
I would save purchasing the expansions for when there is gaming drought. The Ps3 won't really have a gaming drought outside of FPS. EDIT: Actually, July for the North America won't really have any game worth playing. Perhaps buy it then?
Actually, I'd wait until October :)
Didn't buy for 360 won't be buying for PS3
Based on what I have heard about the first two packs, and that the third one will bump it to 30, I will probably wait till all 3 packs are available, hopefully discounted. See you all have good reasons to dismiss exclusive DLC and Beth-- but Fallout 3 to me is a great game, and with possible trophy support.... you can bet your a$$ i will buy~
I wasn't planning on buying the DLC anyways.Now when does the "Game of the Year" version come out again?
Here is an idea, if you enjoy the game and want to expand on it, buy the DLC. If you don't care about Fallout 3 or don't want to expand on it, don't buy the DLC. Simple really...
All of it - i loved Fallout 3 :-)
Good article. Good read. Good suggestion. But I'd even take it a step further. I'll buy the GOTY edition USED from the bargain bin in 2010.
Did they even fix that bug where you couldn't return to the rest of the world after accepting that last mission on the PS3? You'd probably get the DLC and would have to start from scratch just to play it. Best $60 I never spent. Has anyone even heard of this website until they clicked on this link? I haven't. Well anyways, if it floats your boat, shove off and get the DLC. I may get Fallout 3... in 2010. December 2010 perhaps.
I might as well wait for the compilation version to come out then buy it used a few months later. Sorry, but the way Bethesda has been treating PS3 owners lately, I could give a spit about them. Heck, I played their other titles on the Xbox and Xbox 360 but the way they have treated PS3 owners makes me sick.
Im not buying it that's 4 sho
It's not a bug, if you chose to be the hero and go in, you die, they stated that pretty clearly in the text in that part. If you send someone else in, you can continue the game. Also, with the broken steel DLC, you can send in Fawkes and no one dies =]. (PC [email protected], not 360)
If you don't buy it, you are justifying Bethesda's reason to make the DLC a timed exclusive.
NO CRAP, really. You Never wanted to play the game so im not surprised you wouldnt want it. I rented fallout 3 on 360 last year and I really liked it. I havent purchased the DLC because I dont even have the game. But if you enjoyed F3 then I dont see why you would not even be happy to get the opportunity. I wouldnt buy the DLC because Id rather wait on the edition with it all on the disk. But from what Ive seen this is actually some good DLC. If your a fan of the game It seems like a good deal. I would have waited to get the 3rd one anyway before geting the other 2, since you have a higher level cap. If you can wait(or have to wait) then its probably better to get tham all together for cheaper someday anyway. Like some of you Ill probably buy the GOTY edition with all the DLC included. But if you a fan of the game youll probably buy it, but if your a fanboy then you flame bethesda all day long regardless of if you even liked fallout 3. Better late than never. Mabe itll be a little cheaper for the ps3 guys. That would be nice.
is the PS3 GOTY edition going to have the 360 content included?
"If you don't buy it, you are justifying Bethesda's reason to make the DLC a timed exclusive. " I agree and disagree. If they released the DLC on time without this stupid "exclusive" nonsense, maybe they would have sold more DLC on the PS3 version as well? However, now that it's too late for that. Yeah if PS3 owners don't buy the DLC, Bethesda will see it as a lost profit or wasted effort. But it's really a lose-lose situation since they made it "exclusive" in the first place. So who's to blame for low sales of the DLC? Bethesda themselves. Don't make it like it's the gamers fault.
How do you figure? Bethesda knew PS3 owners would wait til GOTY edition, that's what your saying? Based off of what exactly?
@Cookigaki: does the lvl 18 Ninja Perk count though? ;) @all of u who said u love Fallout 3: agrees all around! check out my comments over there >>>, if u are on the fence about the DLC and want to know a little bit more. ...if u dare to visit the Open Zone, that is! MWAHAHA!! :)
That's actually a good idea. If I didn't already buy some of the DLC for the 360 version, I might wait also.
If they make the saves for the regular edition carry over to the GOTY edition, it would probably sell a ton more.
Do you know that they won't carry over or are you just stating an opinion?
Nooooo, that would suck!
Just stating an opinion. I don't think the Oblivion GOTY carried over saves, sadly. To Vault Boy: In theory, but I've played the game through about three times now, so I'd like to be able to jump straight into the "DLC", if you know what I mean...
Ah, well there's still a glimmer of hope then.
I was actually saying it would suck if the saves didn't carry over. Sorry if that didn't come across properly. I definitely agree with you.
Oh, sorry, with you now! :P
I would have bought it if it came out around the same time as 360's version.But im done with Fallout 3 now, got my platinum, i'm happy. Whatever DLC i missed and future DLC to come, Bethesda can shove right up their ***
Awww, come on, guy! You know you want to experience that DLC.
For those who first purchased the game ~7 months ago, might of lost interest in it by now. i.e. GTA4 DLC. Bethesda and Microsoft actually timed the DLC great. Not too soon, not too late.
That's right, you shouldn't. You should spend that money on a cheap whore in the neighborhood instead of getting sloppy seconds after Microsoft :) EDIT- Omegasyde, you're ruining my joke pretending to take it seriously. But seriously, the local whore is better than the Bethesda whore who should have put whatever they had on the bluray disc instead of catering to the DVD size and then going along with the jerk-off and preventing the only ones who could have had the content all along to wait. On a side note...there's a story posted here from earlier that says supposedly MS could have up to a TB of storage on the next system they release like they want a big d!ck now. LOL
DLC > STD. Fact.
I was satisified with the content that came on the Fallout 3 disc. HOWEVER.... The endings were so stupid and cheap. Great climax, horrible money shot.
"I was satisified with the content that came on the Fallout 3 disc. HOWEVER.... The endings were so stupid and cheap. Great climax, horrible money shot. " I see a lot of this with Western devs. The Japanese seem to have them beat as far as endings go. Maybe I'm spoiled by JP games, but how annoying is it to beat a game in 8-10 hours and get a 30-second ending? Bioshock is a prime offender too iirc: great in-game storytelling, absolutely poor endings. I'm not asking for MGS-long endings, I'm just saying...more than a freakin' minute.
"I'm not asking for MGS-long endings, I'm just saying...more than a freakin' minute. " PREACH ON. I agree 100% Fallout 3 has the cheapest, paste on endings i've ever played in a video game. Hell, SNES games has better endings than that crap. However, me and my friend concluded that Fallout 3's best experience is the journey itself, not the ending.
I have to disagree I think Fable 2 is the new worst offender. all that work gathering your 3 Heroes only to... well, I guess I shouldn't 'spoil' it here. although on the other hand, since u can continue playing Fable 2 after the ending with new quests & mansions, u could consider all that after-play to be part of the ending and then it doesn't suck quite as bad. but then of course, on the other OTHER hand, now that u can do the same with Fallout 3 DLC (keep playing after the 'ending')it's still way better, right??
do not buy DLC!!!! DLC is full buggy.
Every fan of this game should buy the DLC if they're able to. The game feels so much more complete with it. Fallout 3 is one of the best games this gen.
o god here we go flame war in 1. 2. 3. go
If people actually read the story there's nothing much to have a flame war about.
wait til october to buy the year edition that will have all 5 parts, 5 x 10= 50 bucks, buy the year edition in october and sell your old copy for the 10 dollar difference.
He makes a decent point. Trade the original copy in and get the game of the year edition instead, and save quite a bit of ammo in the process. Not a bad idea at all.
Mainly because that fat-a$$ who always talks sh*t about the PS3 is a head executive behind the development team.
u bought Fallout... took over... erm... mmm.... 50 hours to get platinum trophy, next weekend came, i exchanged it over...... i dont remember.... lol ... good game, still, a DLC is not makin me go back to it.
Here is the problem Bethesda and other companies (if your reading) why would i buy your LATE DLC when i can buy a new IP with high rated scores? let me see, you dissed the over 20 mil ps3 owners and want us to buy your DLC when we have ps3 games (non multi platform) and one out this week coming, and E3 around the corner...... LOL yeah that's going to work out for you i'm a huge SOCOM fan and won't spend my money on socom dlc when its out, what makes third parties think i will spend my money on them when they spat in my face? sad part fallout 3 is a great game.. but i've dropped you from my must finish/play list months ago
What, am I desperate for games? There's more than enough on the ps3 to keep me busy without having to belittle myself by dishing out $ for cold leftovers. I think that I'll keep my hard earned cash. As a matter of fact, when they put out their next bug-filled opus, I just may skip paying for it altogether. I'll probably be playing Demon's Souls or White Knight Chronicles instead. Bethesda has been treating ps3 owners like second class citizens as of late and now I get to show them how I feel about them in return by keeping my cash.
If sales are low then they might not even bother with PS3 DLC with the next game.
The gamers that took a stand or the developers for spitting in their face to begin with? They said that PS3 owners don't buy DLC so that why they haven't release the PS3 DLC so far and that MS was their top priority. PS3 owners are already the redheaded step child so whether PS3 owners buy the DLC or not wouldn't matter. Oh and you know what the mess up thing is? These DLC might not come with new trophies, yet the DLC for Xbox 360 got new achievements. here is the link to the PS3 owners don't buy DLC and the PS3 DLC might not come with new trophies. http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
I agree, there should basically be no exclusive DLC for a multiplatform game. All multiplatform games should have the same content, no matter the lowest denominator of disc space or system specifications.
This is an old argument. One side says, "support the company", or else you get nothing in the future. I am of the school of "don't pay for squat" unless they treat you right the first time in the future. I think my argument edges out yours slightly. While what you say is absolutely true, as responsible consumers, it is our responsibility to vote with our dollars. It's the principle of it all. These companies want to rape us and discriminate against us. "It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees."
"I am of the school of "don't pay for squat" unless they treat you right the first time in the future. " Right on the money. A good perspective to look at it, is to make them realize "Damn, we didn't make jack out of the PS3 DLC. Maybe because we released it too late?" God knows if they really think like that, but there is a glimmer of hope if there's any humanity left in these publishers.
well i bought all 3 dlc's for pc..and now there are 2 more coming, so if you want the good stuff, support bethesda, i for one loved the dlc's, anchorage was ok (new gausse rifle was awesome), the pitt was really good, lots of unique armors and weapons, and broken steel was even better, lvl 30, main quest extended, basically doubled the entire games content....and with more to come you'd only be missing out, but you can sook if you want, feel free to not have fun
sorry but while I gave agrees to some of you peoples' points above, I also gotta agree here. Fallout 3 has ironed out so many annoying little inconsistencies & the like over Oblivion, which was ALREADY h3lla-addictive IMO. each expansion has brought good things to Fallout 3 (again, more of my opinion on that over here >>> in Open Zone) and further refined some of the gameplay; esp. Broken Steel. there are still some stupid little things just like in Oblivion. ex: NPCs that tell u off in dialogue but then act all nice 2 seconds later with their open just-walking-by dialogue (I'm looking at YOU, Jericho of Megaton!) and yet the rest of the gameplay is so addictive that I've saved the game almost 5,000 times now! Bethesda, please keep improving! can't wait for your next title!
When I bought Fo3 for my PS3 I did it because I thought my PC could not handle the game and also because of the trophies. Then the DLCs never came for the PS3 and so I got myself a copy and the three DLCs to play on my PC and WOW, I am amazed that I can run it at max settings with minor lag.... better aax2 only. Anyways, well, I dont think it is wortk for me anymore to think of buying the DLCs now ,expecially when all 3 will not come at once.... the Broken Steel is the best DLC that raises the level cap and so while doing the other DLCs you can start to gain xp once again(if you are lv 20 already) So far on the PC I ended the first DLC and I want to say tha tit is 10 times better then I thought it would be. It is really fun , not short and have super reward(s) For those with the PS3 that have Fo3 I really recomend then because all 3 DLCs are worth a lot of extra hours and not like many of the DLCs we are used to see on the PSN like a $13 for stupid clothes for SF4 that don't really add anything significant to the game.
You know what . . . this article actually makes alot of sense. ha.
The only DLC I intend to buy is FAT PRINCESS. However, 2 weeks ago, I bought THE ELDER SCROLLS: OBLIVION (Game of the year edition) for $20 and I'm enjoying it. So maybe when Fallout GoTY comes out, maybe I'll consider getting it. But since I haven't experienced any Fallout versions, and since I too feel a little spat upon, I feel I should speak with my wallet to Bethesda.....No Fallout DLC's.
ps3 owners have bigger fish to fry moving on
You have little fish to consider... as in you got less to consider in your Fanboy-Centric Dominant Lifestyle!!! Yeah...Go ahead and try to convince me otherwise!!!
arent like 360 owners who get excited so much just for a dlc or a 1 year old game!!!
dude, what are you talking about?
this is common sense if you want to save money on games that have extra content. I swear that was about as interesting and educational as a grocery store flier. Go investigate something or interview somebody, or comment on gaming studies or run a gaming study yourself. Someones ramblings on a website does not equal news, or just change the name of this website.
If the GOTY version isn't compatible with the regular game save files. This happened with Oblivion GOTY.
thats true... I'll wait for the GOTY version. Not like theres a lack of games to play anyway...
I have to wonder... why is this listed under 360 news too?... go figure
That game got old in 4 hours. Elder Scrolls owns that sh!t. Please bethesda just work on Elder Scrolls 5.
