PS3 finally gets Fallout 3 DLC (That rhymed)
Way back in the day, PS3 owners were treated to the news that Mircosoft had paid Bethesda to release the DLC for Fallout 3 "Only of Xbox 360." We groaned alittle, or alot depending. The first two seemed to underwhelm but Broken Steel won people over with the level cap lift and tons of new weapons. Ps3 owners of the game were left with just the ending of the game. It's hard owning a PS3 sometimes....
Well today, in a move that really seems to growing for game developers, Bethesda dropped the news that, yes, all the DLC that was "Only for Xbox 360" is coming to Sony's console starting in June.
"Operation: Anchorage will be released for PS3 in late June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart. Release dates will be forthcoming."
On top of that, they announced that there will be TWO new DLC packs this summer:
"There are also two new DLCs planned for all three platforms:
* Point Lookout – Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content.
* Mothership Zeta – The aliens have returned, and they're pissed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you're tough enough to survive."
Sounds cool to me. As someone that really liked Fallout 3, it's cool to see that developers are FINALLY opening their eyes to see that (gasp) people are actually are buying PS3s and people that are buying them are not just watching Blu-Ray on them. If you put content on the system, people will buy it. The new stuff sounds fun as well. Fighting aliens? Oh yeah. I'm in. E3 is going to be very interesting........
