Bethesda confirms Fallout 4

Hines on picking a lead dev machine - and Fallout 4

Bethesda's Peter Hines has explained why the software giants behind Oblivion and the forthcoming Fallout 3 use the Xbox 360, rather than PC or PlayStation as their main development platform.

Hines, who was in London to show off the mighty fine looking Fallout 3, told TechRadar that the Xbox 360 was very much Bethesda's lead machine on the title.

Fallout 4 comment is at the bottom. Interesting that they are so adamant that the DLC is Xbox and PC only - who bets that it will appear on the PS3 6 months down the line? :)

Microsoft must've made it worth their while.

So have they just given up on the Elder Scrolls? I would like to see more of that series.

Gamekilla4325d ago

at the ending of oblivion....something along the lines of..."when the elder scrolls are written again, you shall be king!".....that may just be a ruse though...

Calcio4325d ago

They'd never give up on Oblivion - it's their key IP. I'd imagine they are already planning the next one.

What about a post-apocalyptic elder scrolls game.

Mausenheimmer4325d ago

I think there will be an Elder Scrolls game. After all, they can develop more than one game at a time and Oblivion sold very well.

They are saying the MAIN reason they are developing on the 360 is because it is easy to take the hard drive out and take to shows?

Are you freakin' serious? That's it?

If the ps3 gets another shoddy port because a dev can't carry a 10 lb case from the car to the stage, then I am just going to flip out.

InMyOpinion4325d ago

Nope. They said that they chose the 360 as the lead platform because they are most familiar with it and "If you have the PC as your lead machine you have the problem of not knowing what configurations people have, how many gigs of RAM or what graphics card they have,"

Being able to just bring the HDD is a bonus, just like the exclusive content will be ;)

They did well with their PS3 port of oblivion.

Just just went from a first day buy for my Ps3 to a I'll wait for the reviews before I buy. I wish they didn't keep gimping Ps3 games like this.

mistertwoturbo4325d ago

I don't know man, Bethesda have a pretty solid hold on PS3 developement or porting.

Look at the oblivion port, the PS3 version runs in 1280x720 (720p) and the 360 version runs at 1024x600 2xAA (600p).

Not saying that fallout 3 will be the same, but I'm just saying that bethesda know what they are doing when it comes to the PS3's hardware.

nycredude4325d ago

I agreed with you there. That is the only thing that still keeps me interested in the game. I know they did a good job with Oblivion so I will give them a benefit of a doubt, although a review first would be nice.

"Look at the oblivion port, the PS3 version runs in 1280x720 (720p) and the 360 version runs at 1024x600 2xAA (600p)."

Well that is because the 360 got a direct port at the beginning of 2006 and the PS3 came a full year later, more devtime to get things running more optimal.

Try multiplatform games with the same releasedate and dev time

GTAIV: PS3 on 640p, 360 on 720p

"When I say exclusive I mean it is exclusive to just the Xbox 360.

"If you want to play the Fallout 3 downloadable content you will need to have an Xbox 360 or a PC."

Hilarious. It's ONLY exclusive to the Xbox 360. All you have to do is have an Xbox 360 OR PC. lol

Captain Tuttle4325d ago

Or he could have said that it's exclusively NOT on the PS3. ;-)

beavis4play4325d ago

you read my mind captain.
