"Fans will once again be able to continue their experience in the Fallout universe with the add-on packs planned for after the launch of the game."

“Bethesda set a high bar with the quality of the Fallout game add-ons,” said Matt Barlow, General Manager, IEB Product Marketing for Microsoft. “We have no doubt that gamers will be thrilled with seeing a new add-on pack extend their adventures with Fallout: New Vegas on Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE.”

I still need to get around to playing Fallout 3 fully. I don't think I'll ever find the time for these types of games, maybe over Christmas :)

It hasn't been released and they announce first DLC....I hate it when they do that!

Yeah there is something gruesome about that.

You missed out on Fallout 3. People were devided perhaps but I liked it.

Well I hated "Fallout 3" after about 5 hours. Just too bland and colourless and the bugs awere aplenty (both with the game and the bugs I had to continually shoot). I won't be playing this one as the Oblivion Engine is getting tired and I was never a fan of it anyway.

Fallout 3 was AWESOME. Can't wait for New Vegas to come out :D

I did play Fallout 3, it thought it was a good game but it certainly didn't wow me. I'm hoping obsidian can really bring it alive for me with their focus on RPG and Story rather than action like Oblivion and Fallout 3

And thus Bethesda has fallen to greed. I feel DLC is good, but not like this. Too soon.

They should just cut out the ending and make that available as a DLC. I think that's where this path is going.

Remeber all the DLC for "FO 3"? This is just the beginning and I'd be waiting for the inevitable GOTY edition unless you desperately need this game on release.
BTW, "Dragon Age Origins 2" is just around the corner.

The game went gold awhile ago, so they're probably still working on this DLC at the moment. We suspect that it'll be released around Christmas time. Our review will be live at 3pm UK time.

Haven't got around to playing Fallout 3! I'm sure they'll release Vegas GOTY in the near future.

^^Doesn't use DLC.
Either that or you are wonderfully naive!
Or joking, there's that option.....

I have pre-ordered it and only because I have a strong faith in the mod community. Obsidian is like Troika - good ideas but usually bugged software. After some weeks it will most likely be playable. I enjoyed Fallout 3 after I got over it and stopped calling it "Fallout". It is better then Oblivion in many regards, like collect all etc options. Sneaking however is one of the games worst feature and I hope they have really tweaked that so there is a point in getting sneak and Ninja perks...

As it goes for MS Xbox 360 exclusive first DLC... well MS... your support for the PC as a premium gaming platform? - The audience is waiting.....
