241w ago - Bethesda seems to be taking an interesting tack when it comes to software updates for Fallout 3.
Ever since the 1.4 patch, including the new 1.5 patch (which adds Broken Steel achievements and fix a few bugs), the releases have been for the PC and Xbox 360 only.
Of course those updates, besides bug fixes, are updating Achievements for expansions that are also not available on the PlayStation 3.
This could all point back to the surcharge on downloads that Sony began implementing on PSN downloads back in October, 2008, around the time Fallout 3 was released.
Since then Sony has charged developers $0.16/GB for content downloaded through PSN. Even content that's free, like the Fallout patches, would be subject to the charge for the first 60 days that the content is out. Paid content would be subject to the fee as long as there's a charge associated with it.

Namco Bandai came by to give us a first look at Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny, made specifically for the PSP with many of Soulcalibur IV's features, plus enhancements and new characters.

To quote: Details were not given beyond a name, so we're supposed to come up with our own impressions by the character art below.
Director Noriyuki Hiyama from Namco gave us a quick overview of the game and highlighted some of the changes. Our demo consisted of a couple of matches, and we couldn't see much beyond a few initial menus. The character menu looked like it had enough slots for roughly 30 characters, but the final count hasn't been determined yet, since the developers are still working on the roster- there will definitely be more than 20, though.
Taki, Mitsurugi, Tira, Astaroth, Ivy, Cassandra, Voldo, Siegfried, and Hilde were our only options for now, so we decided to...
