271w ago - This weekend Bethesda's Sr. Community Manager Gstaff has [Register or Login to view links] 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.

250°
278w ago - Last year Sony Computer Entertainment announced that it cancelled production on two PlayStation 3 titles in development at the Sony London Studio, namely The Getaway 3 and Eight Days.

Just over a month ago some related video and media from the titles surfaced, and today GameSpot is reporting that The Getaway 3 and Eight Days are not abandoned after all!

To quote from an interview with Sony Studio London's Nicolas Doucet:

"I would not say they have been abandoned, just put to one side. Much work had been done. The studio just wanted to focus on its strengths, EyeToy and SingStar. Given the potential of EyePet, priorities have been changed, but the other projects aren't dead yet. Ultimately, the decision [to put those games to one side] has benefited everyone."

He then goes on to describe that Studio London have one other game in development but gives no details. He describes it as a "different concept".
