Fallout 3: GOTY Edition Canadian Save File PS3 Patch is Available
This weekend Bethesda's Sr. Community Manager Gstaff has http://www.bethsoft.com/bgsforums/index.php?s=&showtopic=1048406&view=findpost&p=15337304 that the French Canadian save file PS3 patch for Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition is now online.
To quote: "The patch will allow the GOTY re-release of Bethesda's wasteland wandering sim to recognize save files generated by Fallout 3 sans accolades.
As a Bethesda community manager helpfully points out, your old save files will only show up if there are new saves (GOTY) present - if you only have old saves, start a new game and, you know, save.
If you have in excess of 130 save files, you'll have to delete older ones in order for the new ones to be displayed.
Oh, and one more thing: If your saves are taking a long time to load you might want to resave them and back up or remove the old ones."
For your game saves from Fallout 3 to work with Fallout 3 GOTY, make sure your versions match up.
If they don't match up (US disc to US disc, UK disc to UK disc, etc) you're going to run into compatibility issues.

I have the UK Version of the Original FO3 and bought the GOTY while in Canada... Even after the patch and after starting and saving a new game - my old Save games don't show up... Any idea what I could do?
it's hard to believe with a game such as this that "TOTALLY RELIES" on saves (and having tons of different save points) that they messed up so bad as to render the game unplayable without patching it...
blows my mind that it even took this long for the patch
