Bethesda Won't Commit To PS3 Fallout 3 Getting Ability To Play Post-Ending

Fallout 3 players have criticized their inability to keep exploring the wasteland after finishing the main storyline, and while that feature is coming to Xbox 360 and PC users via downloadable content, Bethesda Softworks told MTV Multiplayer there are no plans to update the PlayStation 3 version with the same feature.

Shafting PS3 owners is part of MS-Bethesda deal. What do I think of their decision? One word: Pathetic

@Hater: Bethesda are the ones I'm actually calling pathetic. But I won't alienate any developer for selling out. I will still buy their games not for the developers but for Sony.

TheHater5427d ago

Don't blame MS. Bethesda is the ones to be blame. They choose to alienate one set of their consumers/fan base because someone cut a check for them to do so.
I hope Sony fanboys and Playstation 3 owners remember this. So next time Bethesda release a game on the PS3, PS3 owners should alienate them.

IdleLeeSiuLung5427d ago

Odd why they would choose only to update the 360 version? Unfortunately, my brother has the PS3 version (since he only owns a PS3)....

ravinash5427d ago

It would be better to bombard Bethesda with emails till they sort it out. It seems like a silly thing for MS to pay for considering the game has already come out.
The only reason why MS would possibly want to do this is to punish those who who decided to get a PS3. not a good way of getting new customers I think.


have never bought any games from them so I am just trolling. who cares killzone feb 27...mlb the show 09, uncharted ....The lime green people love there DLC.....

ravinash5427d ago

Is Fallout 3 ever going to get trophies?

Because if they can't even be bother to sort that out, I find it highly unlikely if they sort the ending out.

Mindboggle5427d ago

Im honestly not too fussed about DLC, even though it would be nice to have it, i just want them to remove that stupid ending.

TheHater5427d ago

dude, fallout 3 have trophies

rhood0225427d ago (Edited 5427d ago )

It's the same with the all the fixes coming with the GTA IV DLC--specifically the mid-mission check points.

While I could care less about the actual DLC or the cosmetic touch ups-- i.e. more pedestrians, more audio clips for NPCs -- the fact that PS3 owners don't get mid-mission check points is ridiculous. If anything, that should be released as a general update for all versions.

And before someone says "quit whining blah, blah blah," I own Fallout 3 for the 360 (and will get the DLC whenever I get my console fixed) and I said the same thing about 360 versions of Eternal Sonata and Bioshock getting shafted on the additional content that PS3 owners got.

Insomnia_845427d ago

I guess they know nobody will give a sh!t with KZ2 around the corner, let them keep the DLC, we keep good exclusives. Why would you want to be walking around a world of a game you have already finished?? besides, the game was boring wtf??

DRUDOG5427d ago

All I know is that if the DLC comes out for the PS3 I'll be all over it. I loved Fallout. Somehow found the time to get all the trophies already, yeah actually went through it four times since the trophies hadn't even come out yet.

@mr.mister btw cool name
why? because the ps3 is only good for playing blu ray movie.its doesnt sell well heck people doesnt even play with it. yes aprox. 20mil people buy it but it doesnt show you how many sold it or just buy it for a blu ray player. I would not have a video game system that is only good for just multimedia its doesnt make sense.

crck5427d ago (Edited 5427d ago )

after MS's exclusivity contract expires. Question is whether anyone will still care by then or even cares now. There is good news here for PS3 owners though. The PS3 user base has grown big enough where the price for MS to buy timed exclusivity on whole games is becoming cost prohibitive. I believe if Fallout 3 came out in 2k7 MS could have bought a timed exclusive on the whole game.

IzKyD13315427d ago (Edited 5427d ago )

Paying for exclusive DLC is low, but paying for in game features that everyone should experience is rock bottom. Shame on MS for being a$$holes, and shame on Bethesda for taking a check instead of supporting ALL their fans

Sucks to own a PS3, I guess. now, you know how dreamcast owners felt. welcome to failure. population: PS3.

GrandTheftZamboni5427d ago

Butt still hurts, ha? Better stock up on Vaseline because February is right around the corner...

shovelbum5427d ago

This is one of the reasons I always buy multi-platform titles on the 360. PS3-only owners constantly get screwed and not in a warm, fuzzy way.

Pika-pie5426d ago

Why Bethesda.. Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyy yy

tda-danny5426d ago

Man, people should have figured it out after Oblivion was released on PS3. Go look in the PSN store are you will see the only add-on for this game is the Shivering Ilses or w/e its called.

The 360 got quite a few addons.

Be smart, get Fallout on the PC.

ravinash5426d ago (Edited 5426d ago )

You can relax, I'm not that fussed really....I'm only staying on topic.
I do have a decent PC, and it was hard deciding if I wanted it on PC or PS3. I just leaned towards the PS3 because of thing like trophies plus I can play it on the couch.

Cheers to the others for letting me know that fallout 3 has trophies.
It had been a while since I played it.
I'll pull it out of my library again at some point when I have more time.

"Don't blame MS. Bethesda is the ones to be blame. They choose to alienate one set of their consumers/fan base because someone cut a check for them to do so."

Did Microsoft pay off Bethesda to get exclusive content? I'd really like to know the truth about this. Bethesda are cowards and haven't said anything from what I've seen. They just talk about it like it doesn't matter. We made it for the 360.

jadenkorri5426d ago

well i was gonna buy it for PC since lately i havn't had time, but after this, i think ill just go and dl it instead now...not gonna give a company money if they do this sort of think to a specific console...

cherrypie5426d ago

I've reported this comment as spam. That's ridiculous.

Blaming MS for what is clearly a problem with the PS3 market itself is just plain trolling.

The reality? Probably the usual: Poor titles sales, small install base and expensive development costs.

Blaming MS is just a troll.

jadenkorri5426d ago

umm go look up the sales figures comparing ps3 and 360, you'll see the sales figures for fallout 3, It defenitly sold well on both consoles... Take your fanboyish comments to the open zone or somewhere else...

rockleex5426d ago

I'm sorry, I never knew there were exclusive DLC or updates for multiplatform PS2 games that the Dreamcast didn't get.

So THAT's why Dreamcast failed. Wow totally makes sense!

Sony must die! Its because of Sony that the Dreamcast died! We must all unite and support Microsoft! They will get revenge on Sony for Sega! >:D

/end sarcasm/

Pathetic. -_-"
