Hopefully, the days of exclusive downloadable content falling to the Xbox Live service will eventually disappear; if the rising Network is any indication, it should.

But we still missed out on some awesome DLC for games like Grand Theft Auto IV and Fallout 3 , and that's irritating. The good news is that Bethesda has finally announced plans to release that DLC for last year's epic RPG on the PSN. According to Strategy Informer, the timed exclusivity deal with Microsoft has run out and "Operation: Anchorage" will be released for the PS3 version in June, followed by "The Pitt" and "Broken Steel," which will be "4-6 weeks apart." We don't have exact release dates just yet, but it's solace enough to know that PlayStation 3 owners will finally get the good stuff for Fallout 3 . But it doesn't end there: as the exclusivity deal is over, all future extra content will be available for both the Xbox 360 and PS3, so "Point Lookout" and "Mothership Zeta" will indeed be simultaneous multiplatform releases. Get the full details over at SI, and prepare yourselves for some extended play time with one of this generation's most impressive titles. As if this game needed to be any longer, right?

Well, like we just got finished saying, the days of timed exclusive DLC deals should fall by the wayside. In the meantime, we just like to see previously unavailable bonus content finally coming into the hands of PS3 owners.

yes…just for you…because the bonus stuff that came in the collectors edition weren't enough.

Well i bought the Tin edtion of F3, if i buy the special edition i should be entitiled to the add-ons. You cant expect me to buy the ultimate edtion and still have to pay for features.

Oh come on. Did you seriously expect to get the DLC free? When you bought the game the DLC was MS exclusive, you had no reasonable expectation of getting it, did you?

Of course i wasnt expeting to get it then, but i think i should be entitled to it for free now, because i did buy the Ultimate edition, im sick of paying for them and not gettign the full package.

Did the 360 "Tin edition" (lol) get free dlc? No. You get a bobble head and bragging rights. That's it. We get the dlc six months later and you're complaining?

As a side note, I'm Canadian but I do have a credit card.

You paid extra for a lunch-box, bobble head, and art book. The DLC was not part of the original purchase.

Honestly I think anyone who purchased "limited (collector's) editions" are… e'hem, um… wait… [ looks at large pile of collector's edition games ]… never mind.

It won't be free. But you are free to build up some pre-dissapointment, if that floats your boat.

They're $10 each. They also have plans for releasing all of them including the original fallout in a bundle sometime. Which will be more reasonably priced.

I love this game, it just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I hope they come out with more trophies too!

ABOUT TIME, YES! And of course it isn't gonna be free, it still cost money on Live still. And I got the collectors also but not the best one that had a Pip Boy alarm clock, but the lunchbox one. You buy a special edition to get the bonus material, not free DLC. I'm glad just because I went with the PS3 version over the 360 version and then found out it had more bugs and no Trophy support. I played for about an hour and was gonna trade it to my hook up at the game store for the 360 version, straight trade but they added Trophy support so I kept it. The next thing I knew I heard about the 360 exclusive DLC and thaqt pushed me over the edge, I ended up stop playing it and let my cousin borrow it. Guess it's time to get that game back to complete it and prepare for all the DLC. I had Oblivion GoTY version on 360 and PS3 and sold it due to no Trophies and I was so far along in the story on the 360, even though Oblivion was better on PS3 than the 360 you would figure the PS3 version of FallOut would have been the superior platform also.

Agreed. While I can understand some PS3 owning Fallout 3 owners being happy about this, they're just gonna end up supporting the idea that timed DLC is A-OK.

Nice. Although I am slightly frustrated over the fact that I recently traded my game in, this is great news. Fallout 3 is my favorite game, and I will be buying all the DLC day one!

I'm going to trade in my regular version now towards Infamous. Then pick it up the GOTY edition with all the add-ons in the disc already.

I hope that along with the DLC, they patch the PS3 version some more. Even this "patched" version was buggy and had some freezing issues.

I am completely thrilled. I loved F3 and still do. Let Bethesda milk MS for six months. Who cares? I was busy with other games at the time anyways.

I do so hope that the dlc for PS3 isn't modified in some way. Which dlc is it now that removes the level cap? If we're getting that … I don't know what I'll do. That's just awesome news. And WHAT'S "Mothership Zeta?" I'll have a mini-nuke for it's gullet when it arrives that's for damn sure.

According to an interview on IGN (I think), all DLC is identical to the 360 versions, including how the level cap works.

Personally, I'm glad I waited for the GOTY edition. Yay.

Mothership Zeta is a crashed UFO.

Rumour has it that there is also a Game of the year version of F3 in the works too. I don't know how much will be included but it will be along the lines as Oblvions GOTY version with the full game and the expansions on one disc.

Won't buy it, haven't beat the main storyline, and I haven't gone back to it much. A little too boring for me, just walking around aimlessly. I can go outside and do that for real.

"i dont have a credit card that works on the PSN either"

I'm not sure if there is an issue with exchange rate or not but, I live in the US and had trouble with getting the PSN to except my credit card. I actually called Sony and there was an issue with the way I was entering my address. The problem was the way I was entering my apartment information. It needed to appear on the same line as the street address. There's more info on the PlayStation site under: Knowledge Center. Check it out, it may help.

All you people do is bitch. "Is it free? is it free?" why would it be free? you are getting a whole nother 15+ hours on one of the packs alone. I think you all should just be grateful enough that the PSN is free. You could pay for the service and it be shitty like another I won't mention its name. LI*cough*VE

Heads up Ben: I don't think Point Lookout/Mothership Zeta is going to be a simultaneous multiplat release…

360 and PC are getting it in late June/July, respectively, while PS3 owners will get it only after the other 3 packs come out. So maybe end of summer?

Yeah this should be good.

Hopefully they fixed all the freeze up issues by then.

So another 60 bucks to unlock the level 20 max cap? Seems expensive.

No, all you need to lift the cap is the Broken Steel pack
