Fallout 3 DLC pushed back for PS3

First add-ons for Sony console edition of Bethesda's postapocalyptic role-playing game now set to arrive in September.

by

While Fallout 3 garnered acclaim upon its October 2008 debut, the game has since taken plenty of knocks for a series of false starts and missteps with its downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game. Bethesda Softworks added another mishap to the stack today, as the publisher detailed a delay for the PlayStation 3 downloadable content.

At least the heavily polluted atmosphere makes for beautiful sunsets.

Previously announced as debuting on the PS3 in June, Fallout 3's add-ons won't start to appear on the PlayStation Network until September. According to a post by Bethesda Game Studios producer Ashley Cheng on the official PlayStation blog, the first content pack released for the system will be Broken Steel, which gives players the ability to continue playing the game after completing the main storyline. The third pack launched for the PC and Xbox 360 version of the game, Broken Steel was chosen as the first PS3 add-on because it was "easily the most requested" downloadable content, Cheng said.

The Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt add-ons should arrive in quick succession, or possibly be released at the same time. The remaining two 360 and PC downloadable episodes--Mothership Zeta and Point Lookout--will find their way to the PS3 shortly thereafter, according to Bethesda.

I really want to extend my entertainment on Fallout 3, since its such a good game. About time really that they got add ons on the PS3.

I'm with Latitude002 on that one. I wouldn't be suprised if they put back the DLC content on the PlayStation Network altogether and only made it available through the GOTY edition.

For those of you saying whats the point with the Goty edition coming..I only have one thing to say..not everyone wants to buy the same game over again, also not everyone is gonna want every dlc. But as for the dlcs I will literally be shocked if they actually do come out in Sept., in other words im not getting my hopes up.

Big-BossSnake Posted Jul 18, 2009 2:53 am GMT he jun4dragon1976 if you didnt realize bethesda IS snubbing at the ps3. First they didnt work as hard on the ps3 ver (check it out on the review). then they were not going to release the dlcs. now they r which is is good but they didnt have to lie to us 4 so long. And if you say that they were snubing at es5 then they r snubbing twice as much with fo3. fallout wiki lists more bugs and problems with the 360 version than ps3

I've only beat the game once, so I have much more to do in the main game while I wait.

WHY DIDN'T TELL US SOONER!!! Its July and it was due in June! I just hope that this means it will be less glitchy. I hate fallout 3 glitches!

I like how in May they said it would come out in June, then in JULY they announce that it's being delayed... No sh*t! In either case, it will be good whenever, though the original exclusivity will never not be aggravating. All it does is fuel the console wars and the flaming.

Hey Big-BossSnake, try being happy we PS3 owners are getting the content at all. I personally would rather they get it right the first go around with us than have to deal with all the same issues that plagued the PC and 360 versions. At least this way we don't have to buy the Game of the Year Edition to gain access to the DLC. Stop being a jack@$$ and just be happy Bethesda is not just snubbing the PS3 (like they did with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion).

What does that mean for the Game Of The Year Edition of Fallout 3, "coming out in October" ?

Ok. Thats great, and I guess i would care if i bought add-ons.

I buy games not add-ons, so it could come out 3 years from now for all I care.

It's better on the PC anyway - sucks if you don't have that option though.

I originally sold my PS3 port of Fallout 3 because of the DLC fiasco. I cannot say for certain if I would purchase it again on that system. I may just end up getting the GOY version for the 360 and call it a day...

Is anyone stupid enough to get it on PS3? I love the PS3, but the Fallout 3 port to the PS3 was horrible.

I too will be waiting for the GOTY edition. Its just easier and cheaper that way. Plus, I already have some new games (Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, and Fight Night Round 4, and Battlefield 1943) to hold me over until it comes out..

When i first found out the PS3 wouldnt have the downloadable content (thanks in par of the 360 exclusive deal).. i left it collecting dust for months... then i bought the 360 version cheap, & got all the downloadable content.. It was sooo worth it.. & guys this is a bummer waiting again till september now :/

I'll wait for the Fallout 3 GOTY edition.

lol, they expect us to buy it this late?! When so many awesome games are coming?

Gamerzombie

Fallout 3 is easily my favorite game, so I'm willing to wait. Besides there's just too many good games to finish at the moment anyway. I'd rather dedicate a majority of my time to Fallout, than try to rush it while I play 8 other games now.

lbptoady

screw Bethesda for delaying it. There only doing that because they wanna finish Zeta for the 360 before they give an effort into the PS3.

Better than no DLC at all. I'll be busy playing Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 until September anyway.

Yeah, I'd noticed it had been pushed back after it not arriving in June as it was originally supposed to

KoolzKatz

well this obviously means the GOTY edition will get pushed back. Hopefully the game GOTY can get out sooner but i wouldnt be suprised if its released closer to Christmas

Just wait and see, come September, they'll push it back to November or later. They are worse at giving release dates than Square-Enix.

Dead_or_Alive Yes, but are those figures for gaming or overall? I'm not arguing that MS isn't richer, but they are figures which lie, looked at the wrong way.

there is no reason to be taking this long. if they threw more people at this it would be done already. they would make the money back by riding the buzz instead of it being an afterthought. i already sold my game. lets hope whoever bought it gets the dlc now because they have lost my money.

I have all the newest DLC for fallout 3 i have the 1450 Gamerscore but the deal is that the extra content is not worth all the hype point lookout was cool there are hidden quests but not worth all my extra cash only true value was brokensteel but since i play on Very Hard mode i reached lvl30 before moving unto pointlook out So PS3 owners your not missing out on anything grand if i could i would give you my extra content that is exactly that...extra.

good thing i didnt hesitated on buying fallout 3 for my xbox. (yes i own a ps3 as well, and i prefer my xbox).

Don't mean to spoil your fun but what if the GOTY Edition is Delayed aswell? They don't even have a SINGLE DLC out for the PS3 what makes you think they will have FIVE out so quickly. If you use common sense you will see that the PS3 GOTY Edition will PROBABLY be delayed.
