Q&A: Bethesda Talks Oblivion Franchise, Star Trek, Fallout Online

Few, if any role-playing games released over the last year have received as much attention as Oblivion, the fourth installment to be released by publisher/developer Bethesda as part of the company's long-running The Elder Scrolls franchise. Released in March 2006 for Xbox 360 and Windows, Oblivion sold more than three million copies in 2006, while versions of the game have also been announced for the PlayStation 3 and even the PSP handheld.

Earlier this month, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles an official expansion to Oblivion to debut both for PC and for Xbox 360 this Spring, and Gamasutra spoke with Bethesda's vice president of PR and marketing Pete Hines on the add-on and other major topics.

Although I have to say they should have stayed away from StarTrek. There aren't many people out there who are big enough fanatics to buy it. I know it didn't interest me at all. The StarTrek universe has been overdone in my opinion. There isn't much left to it, and to be quite honest, I think StarTrek is dead.

better release a larger capacity HDD if Live is the only way too purchase the content. Come-on Microsoft let Bethesda release a retail version, dumbasses!

Yep the expansion pack is download only. They'll in trouble when the next expansion comes on top of this one.

The Halo 2 Map pack was a disk that only worked with conjuction with a previously purchased game - Halo 2. In other words, you had to own Halo 2 to use the Map pack. Why can't the same be done with Shivering Isles?

I am a Gold Live Member, so it doesn't affect me, but it seems they are losing out on some potential sales. the simple solution would be for it to be a few more dollars for the retail disk version to cover the expense of the actual disk,case, shipping, retail store's cut etc.
