PS3 owners shouldn't buy Fallout 3 DLC

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.

Twizlex3489d ago

I foresee a few disagrees in your future... but not from me at least.

Vault Boy3489d ago

Well obviously I'm not going to disagree lol!

h0tz0rz3489d ago

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.

Milk is for Babies3489d ago

Game of the Year edition would be great for christmas. They get to sell the game through 2 holidays instead of just 1.

L80BelfDK3489d ago

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.

Omegasyde3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

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?

Twizlex3489d ago

Actually, I'd wait until October :)

sonarus3489d ago

Didn't buy for 360 won't be buying for PS3

bunbun7773489d ago

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~

BLuKhaos3489d ago

I wasn't planning on buying the DLC anyways.Now when does the "Game of the Year" version come out again?

Immortal Kaim3489d ago

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...

Hellsvacancy3489d ago

All of it - i loved Fallout 3 :-)

caladbolg7773489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

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.

pixelsword3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

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.

SL1M DADDY3488d ago

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.

xwabbit3488d ago

Im not buying it that's 4 sho

Bgibbs3488d ago

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)

tordavis3488d ago

If you don't buy it, you are justifying Bethesda's reason to make the DLC a timed exclusive.

poopface13488d ago

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.

The Lazy One3488d ago

is the PS3 GOTY edition going to have the 360 content included?

Sarcasm3488d ago

"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.

budbundystyles3488d ago

How do you figure? Bethesda knew PS3 owners would wait til GOTY edition, that's what your saying? Based off of what exactly?

n to the b3488d ago

@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.

PirateThom3489d ago

If they make the saves for the regular edition carry over to the GOTY edition, it would probably sell a ton more.

Twizlex3489d ago

Do you know that they won't carry over or are you just stating an opinion?

Vault Boy3489d ago

Nooooo, that would suck!

PirateThom3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

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...

Twizlex3489d ago

Ah, well there's still a glimmer of hope then.

Vault Boy3489d ago

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.

PirateThom3489d ago

Oh, sorry, with you now! :P

ThatCanadianGuy3489d ago

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 ***

Vault Boy3489d ago

Awww, come on, guy! You know you want to experience that DLC.

Omegasyde3489d ago

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.

OGharryjoysticks3489d ago (Edited 3489d ago )

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

Omegasyde3489d ago

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.

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.

Sarcasm3488d ago

"I'm not asking for MGS-long endings, I'm just saying...more than a freakin' minute. "


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.

n to the b3488d ago

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??
