Looking foward to see the next Fallout on Bethesda's new engine!

Probably my favourite game this gen, so much fun
SolidGear3 (on 18 November 2011)
Solid 10/10. My favorite game this gen. In 20 years I've never spent so much time playing 1 game.
Iveyboi (on 22 September 2011)
I will remember this game forever...a game that just stuck with me
Mordred11 (on 02 September 2011)
one of the best!
yahoocom1984 (on 08 April 2011)
Fallout 4 is coming!
palitococo (on 21 January 2011)
Best series (besides Uncharted and Mass Effect) of the generation.

Master of all games

Deserves every sale. I spent hours on tis game.
Ali-Kharazi (on 06 November 2010)
Great game but if you can get it on PC because after 20 hours, this game gets painfully buggy on PS3. Still a great game, though but it will seriously get you mad. i must have restarted my PS3 at least 5 times for each DLC, but thats becasue i played them last. If you do decide to get the PS3 version, SAVE OFTEN!!!
BanTiger (on 23 April 2010)
the freezing issue is the only reason why i don`t play this game anymore. It freeze every 5 min : ( for me. Its pain in the ass.
AdventWolf (on 12 April 2010)
6.7 gig install! Holy mother! Glad a got a decent size HDD.
AaronSOLDIER (on 11 April 2010)
The GOTY should make Greatest Hits/Platinum like Oblivion GOTY.
blueknight (on 09 April 2010)
deserves every sale and more
TheConduit (on 08 April 2010)
Hidalgo (on 05 April 2010)
20k to the 2m figure. Well-deserved. I'm waiting for a price drop on the GOTY edition to purchase it again.
sabestar (on 02 April 2010)
It is already among the greatest hits, or at least the price is at 29.99 already.
Sash5034 (on 02 April 2010)
How is this not a greatest hit?
haxxiy (on 02 April 2010)
Three weeks until 2m.
vic_viper (on 17 March 2010)
One of a handful of wrpgs I actually like.
Statix (on 03 March 2010)
It's not the inferior version though. The framerate is less consistent than the 360 version, but the PS3 version also features more detailed textures and less frame tearing.

I recently bought the PS3 GOTY edition, and it looks and plays great. I had some lock-up issues that were solved by deleting the 6gb game data off the hard drive.

Do these numbers include the GOTY edition?
Carl2291 (on 25 February 2010)
Didn't know this sold so well on PS3 despite being a pretty much inferior version.
Chairman-Mao (on 09 February 2010)
Come on! Almost 2 million
Thechalkblock (on 02 February 2010)
The RPG of the generation.
Trent (on 10 January 2010)
A must buy game
Chairman-Mao (on 10 January 2010)
One of the best games ever made. I hope it can rumble all the way to 2.5 million before New Vegas comes out; or 2.25m at the least.
Skeeuk (on 08 January 2010)
if you want fallout 3 to collect and keep this is the version to by, beware though it has a fucking 6.7gig install. the devs should have left the dlc streaming off disk its a joke.
OT7 (on 01 January 2010)
@gurglesletch: Scary? why? because the whole picture about a post-nuke holocaust? if is for this,I agree.Besides,very often you feel as a surviving genre's game-quite obvious- ^_^
blueknight (on 14 December 2009)
the add ons brought me right back into this game
Munkeh111 (on 06 December 2009)
Now upto 30k a week, will make 2m and I will be buying it myself when christmas comes
gurglesletch (on 02 November 2009)
This game is good but it is kind of scary.
Dirtybynature (on 15 October 2009)
Same here. I traded mine(51.50au) in for 45au at GAME and bought it for 55au online. 5dlc on 'disc' for the price of 1.
TheConduit (on 30 September 2009)
I just traded in my copy of Fallout 3 for the PS3 and am getting this.

Like hell I will pay AUD$75 for DLC when I can trade it in for $50 and pay another $50 for the game
SmYsiZ (on 22 August 2009)
This will be god like
NicholasCage (on 12 August 2009)

Yes, it will come will all 5 DLC's. I'll be getting it with Uncharted 2 when they come out. Both are coming out on October 13th.
AnarchyWest (on 06 August 2009)
will the game of the year edition come with all the DLC?
geddesmond2 (on 26 July 2009)
Oh you also won't have to download the packs, so they won't take up hard drive space and you can play them all instead of waiting a week or 2 between each one
geddesmond2 (on 26 July 2009)
I'm not to bothered about the delay and you shouldn't be either. Apparently the 5 DLC packs will cost 50 euros/dollars or 10 euroes/dollars each with the first pack releasing in late september. But if you wait 1 month you'll get the GOTY edition for 40 euros. Not sure about dollar price. Trade in your copy of fallout and you'll get the GOTY edition even cheaper
Blackmoor (on 21 July 2009)
I love this game although Bethesda has lost my respect for releasing DLC VERY VERY Late. They probably got paid off by M$ once again just like GTA IV. -_-
snyperdud (on 21 July 2009)
Amazing game.

I just picked up the Special Edition for my PS3. (I've been meaning too for a while now)

Love the lunchbox.
JEstevens (on 20 July 2009)
i love this game :D
Thechalkblock (on 10 July 2009)
Oh and I must say the ending sucked so I will be buying Broken Steel when it is available for PS3 owners.
Thechalkblock (on 10 July 2009)
This is one of my favorite games of the seventh generation of consoles. 9.5/10
TheConduit (on 05 July 2009)
The fallout 3 DLC is a clear representation of how Bethesda works.
With each new piece of content they release it improves drastically
sabby_e17 (on 31 May 2009)
Man this is so GOOD. Everyone get this game now!
TyePhoid_PAL (on 26 May 2009)
Just picked this up. Good so far but I miss not being able to heal easily with magic like in Oblivion.
johnny_ownz (on 16 April 2009)
one of the best games in 08 behind mgs4
chris1_16 (on 12 April 2009)

Western RPG lol
Trent (on 27 March 2009)
is there going to be a game of the year edition??
chris1_16 (on 16 March 2009)
This game is good but it gets annoying after a while

HanzoTheRazor (on 15 March 2009)
10/10 A must own!
Aj_habfan (on 09 February 2009)
Wanted to buy, but it is $70 everywhere. This is the ONLY game I see for that price at all places.
Skeeuk (on 09 February 2009)
this is a great game if you have a ps3 buy it now. the game has been patched and runs better now.
NicholasCage (on 08 February 2009)
Expected more in Japan, I mean this is an RPG lol
Dark Odin (on 26 January 2009)
I started playing it today
Barozi (on 25 January 2009)
Funny that someone added 3 of the DLC screens for this version....
Dark Chaos (on 25 January 2009)
Sales are decent although not too great when compared to the 360 even factoring the userbase differences. Now the gap will probably become 2:1 once the DLC gets released for 360 only.
Egghead (on 24 January 2009)
Why is VGC undertracking this in Japan, in fact why do VGC numbers defer from Famitsu AND MC?
Barozi (on 24 January 2009)
The exclusive DLC announcement was at E3 2008....
terislb (on 13 January 2009)
i wonder how well it sold after the announcement that the ps3 version wont have dlc
halil23 (on 09 January 2009)
360 version released in Japan but not PS3!!! It doesn't even have a release date?? Or did I miss something O.o'
gundamx (on 07 January 2009)
1 million well done:)

Million seller!
metalgearmatt (on 04 January 2009)
is this a good buy? i didnt like oblivion because of its combat, how does fallout 3 compare?
Spoon! (on 04 January 2009)
Just got it, and I got to say I hate this game! Too damn addictive; keeping me up until 4am on a nightly basis and leaving me a zombie at work the next day!
Heavenly_King (on 29 December 2008)
The game is awesome. It looks great, plays great and sounds great.

The experience as a whole is unbelievable. Hopefully will sell 2M.
Slavedemonxi (on 27 December 2008)
1 mil next week? Go fallout!

"I predict 92% on Gamerankings, and over 1.5 million copies lifetime sales"

- So far so good. 91.2% on GR and the good legs are an indication it can reach 1.5 mill.
Xen (on 26 December 2008)
1 million imminent..
playnext3 (on 26 December 2008)
i say 2 or 3 weeks maximum
leo-j (on 21 December 2008)
I might get this game
Christhor (on 21 December 2008)
Sales will soon go down, I'll say 4 weeks...
Dark Odin (on 21 December 2008)
one million in two weeks
StarcraftManiac (on 19 December 2008)
Bought for 34.95 euro's! Sweet deal i.m.o with Christmastime coming up!
Stocko (on 15 December 2008)
PATCH IS OUT WITH TROPHIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
geddesmond2 (on 13 December 2008)
they said they will patch this game in january before they release dlc for xbox and pc.its a dam same ps3 dont get dlc.this sucks cas its a great game
Skeeuk (on 07 December 2008)
bought the special tin box edition for only 24.99 new...........great game im enjoying it.....should easily reach a million soon........devs said they will patch all versions soon buy this game its very good just like oblivion
malekelnasr000000001 (on 05 December 2008)
this game will get 1million.
Damstr8 (on 30 November 2008)
sales arent bad,hopefully the legs will hod up.
Kaos24 (on 25 November 2008)
really good game. Though the glitchs are annoying they can sometimes be funny. heck, i got killed by a car that fell through the ground after i hit it with a fat boy, then re appeared in the sky and came down and exploded on my head. what a way to die. lol
mexitalrish (on 23 November 2008)
kinda wish people would stop the 360/ps3 war. who freaking cares what console sells more. yeah i got an xbox, but i don't care if the ps3 or wii sell more copies or less copies or a game i want as long as i can play it. kinda suprised to see ps3 sales so low for this game though. i expected around 800k by now at the absolute minimum
ninjascroll (on 19 November 2008)
Great game!
Wtf is Static problem Every damn page he post the same trash we get it you like 1080i.
720p is the standard I rarely see a 1080i/p game. Get use to 480p or just watch blu rays they upscale 1080i just fine.
Statix (on 17 November 2008)
Bethesda could've boosted their sales a little bit for this version by just implementing upscaled 1080i support so that the game would be compatible with slightly older-generation HDTVs. Instead, it's yet another PS3 game that many people can't play.
Reasonable (on 14 November 2008)
Great game. Just wandering around feels so... eerie. Still don't get why they can't release DLC on the PS3 though, considering EPIC themselves pointed out its the more open platform when releasing UT3.
whacker41 (on 13 November 2008)
A great game, but there weren't nearly as many quests as i would've hoped for. I played for about 60 hours before i completed all of them and got to level 20 (which is still quite damn quite long), but i would've wanted at least as many quests as Oblivion.
jacob_paet (on 12 November 2008)
I hardly even went into the story. I got so caught up in the side quest that I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT THE MAIN QUEST. F**k the dad! I want more side quests!!! LOL. This game is damn addicting and I blame you BETHESDA.
niksta2 (on 09 November 2008)
@ stats87,

you should get the "ghoul mask"

it makes all feral ghouls neutral towards you, so you can just explore that power plant freely
darthdevidem01 (on 08 November 2008)
1 Million + is possible
Simulacrum (on 07 November 2008)
And its shipped..
madcom8888 (on 06 November 2008)
Waiting for it to arrive at my home in Ecuador, South America...
Cthulhu (on 04 November 2008)
The best RPG i have played ever. And i have played a lot of RPG's the last 12-15 years

I havent done any of the main quest, at the moment i am in river city looking for an android
Stats87 (on 03 November 2008)
Amazing game and super Fun. I've barely done any of the main story because I've spent so much time doing side stuff and exploring the wasteland. I'm glad I bought it for PS3 rather then waiting for the new shipment of 360 versions to come in.

p.s. the first time I fought some Feral Ghouls in an abandoned Power Plant was pretty freaky. It was almost pitch black and all I could hear was the sound of radiation till suddenly the radiation turned into the growls of the ghoul, then boom he was lunging at me.
darthdevidem01 (on 03 November 2008)


Just got this today like 5 hours ago....a BRILLIANT game with a fantastic atmosphere....setting.....so far even plot!
--OkeyDokey-- (on 02 November 2008)
They've managed to craft the most breathtaking world ever seen in a game, bar none. The atmosphere is unmatched.

This is the best RPG I've played in years.
ninjascroll (on 15 October 2008)
2-3million lifetime sales at least

I was on fence but now the more I see from fallout3 the more I need to play it.
Awoken (on 07 September 2008)
they had me at "we made oblivion". I am expecting this to be a more futuristic version of Oblivion.
Slavedemonxi (on 05 September 2008)
This game looks really fun.
obieslut (on 24 August 2008)
after seeing the game stutter and crawl on the x360 with slow downs and poor frames per second i have really been put of this game.
piratestrickland (on 03 August 2008)
already have my pre order payed off and I'm patiently awaiting its release. Being that it did so well at E3 I see this as definate competition for GTA4 (which I also love)
Slimebeast (on 10 June 2008)
I predict 92% on Gamerankings, and over 1.5 million copies lifetime sales.
axewater (on 10 May 2008)
I'm sure waiting for this baby to be released. Some say it's just a mod for Oblivion ... I'm convinced it's gonna be a breakthrough game. Big one. bam. hehe
segajon (on 14 January 2008)
The last Bethesda game I played was The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and it was amazing, that being said I will buy this game putting my trust in Bethesda to produce another classic.
