In an industry where exclusive games on a singular system is quickly going the way of the dinosaur, it appears that securing exclusive content is the new flash, and Microsoft appears to be leading the forefront with securing exclusive content rights to upcoming games. Their latest conquest? Bethesda’s highly anticipated Fallout 3.
As announced at E3 by Microsoft and now once again confirmed by Bethesda’s Pete Hines, Xbox 360 and PC versions of Fallout 3 will be getting exclusive DLC. Hines didn’t specify what exactly that content would contain, when it would arrive, or if Microsoft had made them an offer they couldn’t refuse by way of large amounts of cash currency. All we know right now is that the DLC will be “substantial,” as executive producer Todd Howard put it last week.
Fallout 3 will be available this fall for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
