The problem with Vegas is it looks too cheesy. The hallmark of Fallout has always been the bleak desolate landscape and bombed out urban settings which Fallout and Fallout 3 portraited perfectly. The only reason Vegas was good in Fallout 2 is because it was a light hearted diversion in a wasteland full of misery and radiation. I'm not sure how well this setting would work when they're making an entire game around it.

I think it's going to work much the same as you suggested with Fallout 2 - the glitzy Vegas we all know (i.e. the strip) will be the only area which features the bright lights and near-complete structures we're expecting, while much of the rest of the game will take place in wastelands still.

Fallout 3 is my all time favorite game. A pure masterpiece.
But no one can say Fallout 3 wasn't cheesy. That was all part of it's charm and I think New Vegas will hit the nail on the head.
