First Fallout: New Vegas DLC Exclusive to 360

image

Bethesda has a Christmas present planned for Fallout: New Vegas fans. Well, some of them at least.

The release of Fallout: New Vegas draws ever closer. Indeed, for a lot of people it's just hours away, and while most people will have already picked out what system they're getting the game for, a last minute announcement from Bethesda may encourage a few people to change their minds.

Bethesda's VP of marketing and PR Peter Hines has outlined what could best be described as a "good news, bad news" situation. The good news is that there's DLC coming for the game, but that bad news is that it's going to be exclusive to the Xbox 360. Currently no other information is known about the content, except that it will become available at some point over the holiday period.

"We're excited to continue the partnership between Bethesda and Microsoft, and build on the success of the game add-ons released for Fallout 3 on Xbox LIVE," said Hines. "Fans will once again be able to continue their experience in the Fallout universe with the add-on packs planned for after the launch of the game."

It's reasonable to assume that the content will only be exclusive for a limited period, much like the first three DLC packs for Fallout 3 were exclusive to Microsoft platforms for several months. Fallout: New Vegas comes out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 tomorrow in North America, on October 21st for Australia and October 22nd in Europe.

it'll probably just be something simple that wouldnt be of much use porting over to other formats or something they can easily build into any content shared with the other consoles

Microsofts money at work for you!

Good thing I have an Xbox.

Lets just hope it isn't some DLC to fix a horrible ending system like in Fallout 3, otherwise I feel really bad for the PS3 players.

Also, epic post number! *throws up horns*

Hahah, thanks for noticing! I just noticed that myself, now I'm scared to post and ruin this...

W000T it's great to be a X-Box gamer lol

Its not like fallout is a good RPG or anything Why cant we be talking about good games like league of legends or mine craft seems kinda biest to always talk about one game on the main page but ignore all others

I have a feeling it is just that. *sigh* better get it for the PC so I can mod the hell out of it, and make it open-ended

Oh, the irony. There's was plenty on Minecraft a few weeks back. It's just that Fallout 3 was a vary popular game, and its sequel is out tomorrow (if you're American, Friday for the rest of us). If you really hate Fallout, come back in a couple of weeks.

so when they say "partnership with mircrosoft" they mean xbox microsoft or all of microsoft? i'd like the DLC on meh pc copy...xbox is el diablo :P

RAGE!! (sigh) that disappoints me so much. I think I might change my pre-order now. And I was so looking forward to having it for the PS3. I wish they had told us this much sooner.

why the fuck would they do this :@

because they are microsoft, and BECAUSE THEY CAN! :S

Wow, nice move Bethesda. Remember who payed for your company, back when you were producing 2d-rpgs? Weren't the console people.

So when they say Xbox Live, is that only 360 Xbox Live or the Xbox Live for PC as well?

...Goddamnit bill...That's you isn't it?

Not the first time I got kicked in the b*** by Microsoft.

We have mods.

Your DLC is invalid.

Besides, it's either this or GFWL, guys.

that team was long dismantled. these are nothing more then imposters using the bethesda name to push their games since bethesda was bought out and restructured.

Wonderful; Microsoft once again abuses its influence to make more money.

Well, I guess they won't mind if I buy the game used then. Because they aren't getting any of my money now.

already getting it on 360...so yay, I guess. Here's hoping it's some good dlc.

Dicked over again.

Getting it on PC.

Same thing happened last game. Christ almighty am I getting sick of this faggotry console war.

"Which company can brown nose best?"

Fucking rage. Fuck fucking fuck fuck fuck.

Argh.

Fucking argh. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

GRAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

GODDAMNITAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

OK I'm done.

EDIT:

Yeah this'll do it.

Meh, whatever.

On the PC, we have these wonderful things called mods.

Plus, if previous 360 Fallout DLC is any indication, these ones may also be hilariously broken.

Basically what he said.

Double post, ignore.

I am glad they are doing this and truthfully, they should do thius with more games. It is about time they put my Xbox live dollars to work.

As long as this DLC isn't to fix the stupid amount of bugs in the games like Fallout 3 had then I'm not so bothered. I'll be picking it up used now anyways since most likely the PS3 version will be like the GOTY.

Meh, a mod will fix that soon enough for the PC version.

BOOOOO!!! Bad Microsoft, stop throwing your money around. I bought Windows 7. What more do you want that isn't a waste of money and lacking of benefits for me. In other words I want DLC for PS3.

Calumon: Is this one of those games Jack thinks I shouldn't play? Because I want to know what all the...

Jack: No you don't! Look! Ratchet and Clank!

I deeply hope it's like Point Lookout in the sense that it's an entire new map, not a linear progression of rooms and areas *Mothership Zeta and The Pitt* or a single set of missions in an area you can't go back to *Operation Anchorage*.

Awww, thanks Bethesda, now I feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing you love platform equality.
/sarcasm.

And so the back stabbing begins... hopefully if it isn't just 'exclusive for a limit time' it is something pretty useless like horse armor...

Estoki:

I couldnt agree more. :D The mods are ten times better and I rather wait than install stupid GFWL.

PC gamers will have mods.
Your DLC means nothing!

Because all mods are all high quality right? Not all mods are created equal.

Remind me again who owns the windows-pc-gaming-platform, because for some reason I seem to think it was Microsoft, but I must be wrong.
