Downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 version of Fallout 3 was supposed to arrive at the end of June, now it's the end of September. Bethesda's said it can't issue a rollout schedule PS3 until the first content, Broken Steel, arrives. Could that jeopardize the release of the "Game of the Year" edition, which is scheduled for a release sometime in October, bundled with all the downloadables?
A Bethesda Softworks representative responded over e-mail last night with a straightforward "no" when I asked if the PlayStation 3 version would be affected.
The "Game of the Year" edition of Fallout 3 is said to include all of the downloadable content announced so far -- Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout and Mothership Zeta. Theoretically, the downloadable content doesn't necessarily have to be on the disc; it could simply come with hooks into PlayStation Network, giving players access to the content they paid for when it eventually becomes available.
However it works out, the PlayStation 3 version won't be see a delay.
PlayStation 3 owners, are you holding out for the "Game of the Year" edition?
