Fresh off of their claims for PS3′s version of Oblivion that “memory constraints” limited the amount of content it recieved, Bethesda Softworks give more bad news for Fallout 3 owners. When asked if the PS3 version of Fallout 3 would be given DLC at any time, a simple “Not at this time, no” answer was given by producer Todd Howard.
This comes as odd news given that EA has sanctioned an exclusive, for PS3 only map for Mirrors Edge. While understandably, trying to make a game for three different platforms (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) is hard, I don’t see a legitimate reason that PS3 owners should be screwed here. I have both systems, so I bought Oblivion for 360, knowing it would have better support, and when it comes time to buy Fallout 3, i’ll most likely pick up the 360 version as well.
As for the proponents of “PS3 is too hard to develop for”, an article was just released by Resident Evil 5′s producer citing those rumors were completely untrue.
As for the arguers that “The Xbox is more popular so why not forget the PS3″, I don’t see how this is a winning situation for either you, or Bethesda. It wouldn’t take that much effort to develop and release the content for the PS3. They’re losing easy money, and the support of anyone who only has a PS3. With Epic games botching the release of Gears of War 2, and Microsoft dropping the ball on the long awaited Castle Crashers patch, is anyone even listening anymore? We want to give you our money Bethesda! Take it!
