Bethesda promises more for Fallout: New Vegas

Bethesda Softworks has predicted an extended shelf-life for Fallout: New Vegas, as it had with Fallout 3. The publisher does not seem phased by the irregularly high amount of bugs and glitches that shipped with the first copies of the game, but the game's impressive sales explain why. And it expects more success on the way.

"We believe that through a combination of DLC, our strong marketing and PR  and by managing our lifecycle properly, that we’ll see a long burn of sales in a similar way to Fallout 3," said European marketing and PR director Sarah Seaby to MCV.

Let's just hope there aren't any stupid aliens this time around.

    Fucks sake Bethesda, get the fuck out of Fallout and start making a new god damn Elder Scrolls game! Jesus Christ, the last one was amazing, and then nothing! SORT IT OUT AND STOP CHURNING OUT FALLOUT NONSENSE!

    I agree with Darth, i bet the last one will be another alien adventure in Area 51. Obsidian better make a DLC that allows you to continue playing after you beat the game because until they do, i will not be able to beat F:NV. Im the type of gamer that plays a game and does EVERYTHING in one playthrough the first time. Took me 5 months to fully complete F:3

    Heeeeey, I was thinking, instead of working on DLC, how about using all of that man power towards fixing these ridiculous bugs?
  • Darth_Griffin - November 4, 2010 4:24 a.m.

    how many people want to bet that at least one of the DLCs will involve Area 51?

    they should seriously give some free DLC to anybody who bought it early on, because we're the ones who have to look past the *horrid* bugs. (P.S my video card still needs a software patch from this)

    Only problem with GOTY versions is the second disc, lose that, lose all DLC
  • H2A2I00 - November 4, 2010 12:34 a.m.

    I NEED DLC preferbly one that allows you to continue playing after you beat the main quest because that is just plain annoying
  • Gameguy94 - November 4, 2010 12:30 a.m.

    @ oufour I WOULD have done the same as you but I just couldn't contain myself and HAD to have it. If I had Fallout 3 for PC this might have been a different story cause I would have a TON of mods by now to keep me busy.
  • Doctalen - November 3, 2010 10:31 p.m.

    I actually enjoy downloading DLC. Whenever a GOTY edition comes out, I know it will be a better deal, but there is just something about buying the original game that makes it seem less tacky.
  • rockstarsean - November 3, 2010 8:53 p.m.

    As much as I want New Vegas ( this much) I'm still playing Fallout3 and have a final year of uni to attempt so I will also be waiting for the inevitable GOTY. That is all.
  • db1331 - November 3, 2010 8:39 p.m.

    I learned long ago never to pay full price for an Obsidian game. I'll buy the GoTY when it hits $10, maybe $20 if I have absolutely nothing else to play at the time.
  • wicko - November 3, 2010 8:34 p.m.

    Yeah this is exactly why I didn't buy it right away. GOTY edition was pretty much guaranteed. I know I can wait, I've pretty much played this before (looks at Fallout 3).
  • mkis007 - November 3, 2010 8:30 p.m.

    They better just be exclusive to 360 for a couple weeks because even thought i have a Ps360 i bought the game for my pc that runs the game at ultra with only aa turned to 2 and vsync off. Bethesda needs to stop alienating fans of its games...
  • nightmare17 - November 3, 2010 8:23 p.m.

    @ oufour I was gonna do that but I figured that most of the DLC will be trash like Fo3 so I'll probably be just getting a couple DLC for new vegas. I'm glad I didn't wait too because I'm liking this better than Fo3. Hopefully the DLC will be good though. I'm thinking there will be faction specific DLC.
  • ventanger - November 3, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    oufour does have a good point, this just makes the inevitable GOTY edition far more desirable than buying the vanilla version and then shelling out 10 bucks at a time for the DLC. If they were smarter with the marketing they would have waited to make this announcement until the first DLC was released.
  • Scotty2Hotty - November 3, 2010 8:20 p.m.

    @oufour Ditto.
  • Killik_13 - November 3, 2010 8:19 p.m.

    Great news, as long as the Add-ons don't make my PS3 freeze every 5 seconds like it did in the Fallout 3 DLC. Cos that sucked.
  • oufour - November 3, 2010 8:14 p.m.

    now i put off buying new vegas for a year to get the game of the edition.
