IGN have revealed the first DLC release for Fallout: New Vegas, well ahead of the schedule for DLC set by Bethesda and Fallout 3 (maybe it will sneakily ship with some serious patch work).

"Dead Money" will be available for download from December 21, exclusively for Xbox 360, where players team up with three other wastelanders for something of a heist/treasure expedition to recover the Sierra Madre Casino treasure. It's promised we'll see new areas, new quests and new major decisions, though no specifics on desperately need patches or updates were mentioned and there was also no media released.

The new content will cost 800 MS Points (AU$13).

XBox 360 exclusivity... wth?

By making this choice they are simply encouraging people to not pay for it at a later date (pirated).

To my knowledge this is the first time they are stuffing us around with this type of stuff.

meh its good that they are releasing it exclusively to 360 cause its better (in my opininio) no im not one of those 1 side dumb s**** that only say the 360 is better, i had the ps3 atleast 2 years before i got my 360 and i must say i had some great times, but until i experienced the 360 i was amazed in its user friendly features and its strong online backbone. i have been on ps3 but there just isnt enough people online for it to be fun anymore. the trophies system was great but then when you compare it to the achievement system, it just doesnt cut it, although the leveling system was quite nice.

anyway its for the best because the 360 will eventually dominate the gaming community. the new xbox kinda kicks the crap out of the new ps3, but then again its basically a ps3 made by microsoft with xbox live etc.

i think people should convert, xboxs are quite cheap and you dont need the new ones. im glad i converted because there is just so much more with the 360 than the ps3.
im not here to cause trouble and i dont want ps3 owners b****in at me cause of my opinion. if you like ps3 than good for you. ive tried both and i like the 360 more

I can't even comprehend how people play Fallout on anything but the PC. The amount of times I have saved my butt from bugs with the console is well... too many times to count.

I haven't even taken the shrink wrap off my copy yet, I'm waiting for this supposed mega-patch that is going to fix a whole s***load of stuff before I play it. Maybe they should actually fix the game before trying to screw more money out of people?

Hellfire, how in christs name does your argument have anything to with an exclusive dlc release.
what the f***...

I think Hellfire was talking about PS3 vs Xbox 360 exclusivity, and wasn't factoring in PC.

The only reason to play on 360 is if your PC does not have enough grunt to handle it.

The PC version:

- Has better patching
- Is able to have mods, texture packs and sound mods added
- Runs smoother and is easier to manage

Hands Down PC is better!

PC is pretty much the superior platform now. xbox and ps3 graphics just look dated.

Yah, PC version has been patched twice already from memory.

LOL PC gaming has been dying for a while now, I'll give it 2 years at the most until it's all gone.
I don't know why your all in denial about it, the next Xbox console will finish it off.

Why not have a console and a PC and enjoy the benefits of owning both? As I have already said, Fallout:NV (which is imo one of the best game ever made) would be s*** on a console. No mods and lots of game breaking bugs. All the bugs I have encountered that would have f***ed my game or impeded it heavily have been easily fixable with the console. Plus fps games will always be superior on the PC due to the mouse-keyboard combo.

But I love my 360 too. Forza owns on it and sport games own on it too. You're dumb if you like playing games and restrict yourself to one platform out of some sense of retarded loyalty.

Some genre's just suit consoles more. FPS will always be a PC best. Racing, sports, JRPGs will always be console best. western RPGs like dragon age and mass effect can go either way really. PC gaming aint dying. Not until companies like valve and blizzard go belly up.

People have been saying this for years now and it hasn't happened yet because it won't happen.

Yeah, it wont die, its becoming less and less of a significant slice of the pie, and I can see less developers bothering with PC versions of their games maybe, but there'll still be plenty of PC gaming to be had.

Admitedly I probably do more gaming on my 360 and PS3 these days than my PC, but I still wouldn't be without a PC, theres still games that belong there that I would never play on a console.

to say PC is on the way out is narrow minded, even if the next PS and Xbox are the best for there short span of time you will always have a market for PC gaming machines so for developers to stop programing PC is just not true.
