Official Word on the Fallout 3 Changes: Morphine Now Med-X

100°
311w ago - There's been a lot of talk in the blogosphere about changes that were made to Fallout 3 so that the game wasn't banned in certain territories (most notably Austraila). It was revealed yesterday by Edge Online that the changes made to the game would be made across all territories, so as to not create confusion, but what changes, specifically?

I shot a note to Pete Hines, VP of Marketing and PR at Bethesda, to find out just what was changed.

UGO: Just wanted to confirm the annoucement that all versions of Fallout 3 would be indentical, with the changes being made to the names of specific drugs (changing them from real-world names to in-universe names). Can you be more specific? If I recall, all of the drugs in the builds we've played were made-up names like Buffout and Mentats.

Pete Hines: The chems in the original Fallout used fictional names... Buffout, Jet, Rad-X, etc. Those all appear in Fallout 3 in exactly the same way as before.

We had added a new chem to Fallout 3 and had given it a real-world name, Morphine. Questions were raised about the use of that real-world drug, not only in Australia, but other territories as well. We decided there was no reason it needed to be named that and...

311w ago - When the PSP first launched in North America on March 24, 2005, it revolutionized portable media forever with its ability to play videos, music and display pictures all while being a powerful gaming machine.

Since then, it gained even more functionality with a built-in Web browser, Skype functionality and connectivity with the Playstation 3. When the Playstation Portable (PSP) 2000 or 'Lite' model was released, it had all the quirks of the original model but answered consumer demands with the additional Video-Out socket which allows users to output video to any progressive television.

At the Leipzig Games Convention, Sony officially announced the newest chapter in the life of the PSP by revealing the PSP 3000 (or PSP "Brite", as dubbed in the blogosphere). The PSP Brite is just as thick, weighs the same and even has the same battery life as its predecessor, the PSP Lite. This newer model, however, consists of many ergonomic and aesthetic changes while offering a slew of new functionality features.

The greatest and most notable change in the PSP Brite is the upgraded screen. Sony recognized that the glare made it nearly impossible to view the screen in the outdoors or well lit environments, so they have integrated their new anti-reflective technology. The addition of this new technology should...
