221w ago - According to Videogamer.com (linked above), the first Fallout 3 DLC dubbed 'Broken Steel' will be hitting the PS3 on September 24, 2009... followed by Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt on October 1st.
To quote: "Bethesda has announced that a new update for Fallout 3 on PS3 was released today, addressing a number of issues, implementing some optimizations and adding trophy support for the upcoming DLC.
Good timing too, with Bethesda also confirming that the first of five upcoming DLC releases, Broken Steel, is to be released on September 24.
This will be followed by Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt on October 1, and Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta on October 8."
238w ago - As you may or may not have heard, all of the Xbox 360 exclusive downloadable content for Fallout 3 will be coming to the PS3 this summer, thereby making the Xbox 360 exclusive DLC not Xbox 360 exclusive at all.
Timed exclusive? Whatever, that doesn't mean anything to me.
In addition, however, two new chunks of DLC are coming to both platforms, though the 360 gets it first... again. So 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!
The DLC is only going to start trickling out this summer, the two new pieces actually hitting in the fall. As it turns out, a Game of the Year edition is also coming out in the fall, October to be more specific, and it's going to have all five DLCs in one package. If you've managed to hold out this long, you might as well just wait and get the GOTY edition.
As an expert calculator user, I can tell you that five pieces of DLC at $10 apiece is $50, and that's on top of buying the game in the first place. Trade that game in, however, (or sell it) and you'll likely make up the $10 difference. This gets you all of the DLC without taking up precious hard drive space, and it doesn't cost you anything more than if you downloaded it all separately.
238w ago - PlayStation 3 is set to receive existing Fallout 3 downloadable content beginning in June, with two new add-ons announced coming to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Bethesda has announced plans to bring Operation Anchorage, The Pitt and Broken Steel to PlayStation 3 over the coming months. These Fallout 3 add-ons were previously only available for Xbox 360 and PC.
Operation Anchorage will be released on PS3 in June, with the other content following four to six weeks apart. An update will be released for the PlayStation 3 version of the game to enable such content to work.
Meanwhile new content is coming for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Fallout 3. These are Point Lookout "Explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content" and 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."
Point Lookout will be released on PC and Xbox 360 in June and follow on PlayStation 3 once the three other expansions have been released. The cost for the initial PC/X360 release will be 800 Microsoft points. Mothership Zeta will cost the same and will arrive on PC/X360 in July, again with a PS3 release once the other four pieces of content have appeared on the PlayStation Network.
245w ago - Fallout 3 lead designer Emil Pagliarulo has recently revealed that more downloadable content is on the way for Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360 and PC, but there was no mention of any content appearing for the Sony PS3.
Xbox 360 and PC owners have just been treated to 'The Pitt', the 2nd pack so far for the popular game.
When speaking at GDC 09, Pagliarulo stated: "I can say we're working on lots of DLC, lots of stuff brewing up here. God only knows where that may go. What famous landmarks can we destroy next?"
As reported from Shacknews, a third DLC pack titled "Broken Steel," will arrive next month and will continue from where the main game ended.
Let us know what you think of the announcement. Even though they have not come out and said it directly, it looks as if Microsoft have once again secured some exclusive content from Bethesda and PS3 owners are left waiting in the cold.
