Fallout DLC coming to PS3, two more packs announced

Bethesda has announced that the Fallout 3 downloadable content that has so far been released for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game will be arriving on the Playstation 3 in June.

It was unknown if the downloadable content packs that Bethesda had already released through Microsoft's Live platform for the Xbox 360 and PC would ever make it way to Sony's Playstation 3, but today's news have Bethesda has announced that its current DLC will be arriving on the Playstation 3, and that two more packs will be arriving on all three platforms.

Its first "Operation: Anchorage" DLC will be arriving on the PSN in late June, followed 4-6 later by their second DLC pack "The Pitt".
The third and most popular pack, "Broken Steel", which allows players to continue after the normal game has finished and raises the level cap, will then be arriving a few weeks later after "The Pitt".

Two new DLC packs have also been announced for all three platfoms. The 4th DLC, "Point Lookout" is described as letting you "explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content. "
The 5th "Mothership Zeta", will please fans of a certain weapon and hints already in the game and is described "The aliens have returned, and they're ****ed. Experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you're tough enough to survive."

The first of the new packs will be available on the Xbox 360 and PC in late June, followed by the second in late July.
Both will be arriving on the Playstation 3 after the current three packs have been released and will probably follow the same 4-6 week gap.

Bethesda has also divulged its future plans for retail versions of its DLC, coming for the Xbox 360 later this month you will be able to buy Operation: Anchorage and The Pitt on a disc, followed by a second DLC retail disc with Broken Steel and Point Lookout in august, retail disks for DLC will not be available for the Playstation 3.

With Bethesda you should always skip the expansions/paid content and just wait for the GotY edition. You know it's coming and that it'll include most everything.

What's weird is people purchasing the content for their consoles where every single addon/expansion slows the performance of the game due to the RAM limitations on the machines. Heck even the GotY edition with its all-on-one-disc hopefully with memory optimizations approach might be a slow mess. Anyone own Morrowind GotY on Xbox? The load times were easily doubled and the framerate chopped along. There's simply more stuff to load and Bethesda is not so good with the memory usage and the bug squashing.

I love me some consoles but when it comes to Bethesda's big open world games it's always nice to be able to slap in another stick of RAM should the need arise come some expansion.

and i might ask , WTF those last DLC have to do with Fallout - the actual game ( at least Mothership Zeta )
Sick of seeing "Milk the cow till it gets dry" system , but well its Bethesda after all

Waiting for the 6th DLC where we will get a portal to go into the past , medieval style , and for the adults maybe Vault 69 DLC

This sounds very cool... but from a modding perspective with games for windows live... this will be "fun".
Despite that, very much looking forward to the new mods.

At least the GOTY will have everything IN the data folder and mods will be much easier.

(Edit) About time for PS3 getting the add-ons.

I like the sound of the Mothership Zeta DLC :-)
I can't wait to be fighting off alien's and it'd be awesome to get a rifle version of the Alien Blaster :-D
The swampland one sounds pretty kool too...
