If you factor in the freely-available development package, this will be the sixth major expansion Bethesda has made available for the game post-release. Five of those six carry a $10 price tag. Purchasing all of them individually would exceed the original cost of the game, but the company does plan to sell a $50 Game of the Year bundle later this year with all the DLC packs included.
Meanwhile, PlayStation 3 owners eager to dive into the downloadable content for Fallout 3 will have to wait a bit more. Having missed its initial late June estimate, developer Bethesda now expects the first batch of DLCs for the post-apocalyptic title to hit PlayStation 3 consoles “by the end of September.”
All things considered, what's your take – is Bethesda truly expanding the scope of the game and giving players more of what they want? Or are they simply trying to milk the series with a number of rushed mini-expansions?
