IGN Hands-On

This is pretty optimistic for PS3 owners looking to get Fallout 3. Great looking textures and eye popping visuals, and smooth framerates throughout, with only mild slowdown when huge explosions occur. There is a mention of Trophies possibly being added later if Bethesda deems it worthwhile and the community demand is high enough.

Note: This is a pre-alpha build being previewed, so expect aspects to be improved by the games ship date.

Framerate slowdowns have not been reported in other versions. That is good that it's just pre-alpha, though. It should be in final polishing by now. Good luck, PS3 owners.

really looking forward to this since they are making it good with the 360 version and not just a shitty port.

It's not the late nineties so why should it, it's time to move on it has a new developer which if they didn't take over there wouldn't be a fallout 3,   as long as they have kept the feel of the series which it seems to me they have i don't see a problem.

I completely agree from a gameplay standpoint, but Fallout 3 seems to have lost the flavor that makes Fallout, Fallout. The story is more - as much I don't like saying it - Oblivion with guns, they've gone more of the serious route with Oblivion's epic-ness of a story instead of Fallout's satirical humor. Not that any of it matters to me, because I think it's going to be one of theb est games this year, and I've already paid off my pre-order, so no turning back now! :D

Ok, i guess the next GTA game should be an RTS then, using your logic thats how things would work. And im not saying Fallout 3 wont be good, its just not actually fallout.
