As you may have heard in this week’s episode of The Bethesda Podcast, Fallout: New Vegas is officially finished and off to manufacturing. Congratulations to the team!

In other news, look at that cake. It was presented to New Vegas designer Robert Lee on his birthday, which happened to coincide with the official end of development.

“Complete surprise birthday present from my wife,” says Lee. “I had no clue she was planning this.”

The cake was designed by Christopher Garrens, whose Costa Mesa bakery “Let Them Eat Cake” is regularly featured on WEtv’s Amazing Wedding Cakes. Click here and here for a few more angles.

Also on the podcast, we revealed the PC system requirements for New Vegas. In case you missed it, here they are in chart form:

  1. Hey guys havent you seen Gamestop’s website or watched E3 or anything…they said months ago that the game was coming out on hard copy for Windows…pay attention

  2. Excellent my pc is well above the System Requirements I should easily be able to run it on the highest setting.

    now I’m off to pre-order the collectors edition

    That cake looks to good to eat

  3. Seriously, I never get the video card specs anymore. What is more powerful and less powerful than the 1300XT series? Does that mean my Mobile 4330 chip set can handle this or not? I’m not plunking down $50 just to test if it can run.

  4. I have a Question for the developers.

    If I am able to play Fallout 3 on low settings, will NV work as well?

    My specs are:

    AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3800+ 2.40ghz
    2gb of memory
    Ati Raedon HD 4300/4500 series
    Direct X11.
    Windows 7 32 bit.

  5. I apologize in advance to the PC Gaming Purists, but… will New Vegas still be able to automatically detect an Xbox 360 Controller connected to my PC and set the controls to be the same as with the X360 version? Thanks!

  6. Will there be DLC in the future? … need to know because I dont know which version to get , Xbox or PS3 …. if there is DLC it will be on Xbox if not PS3

  7. Hi,
    I have a question:
    Will my Laptopsystem be able to handle Fallout:NV (I could buy it for my XBox360,but its more expensive)
    Win 7/64 Bit
    4 GB RAM
    AMD Athlon II Dual-Core M300 2.00 GHz
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4300 Series 512 MB

    I don´t know,is my ATI Card good enough?
    Could sombody who knows please answer!Its so important to me!
    I already say thx a lot :)

  8. hahahhaha i am continually amazed at the CONSTANT FREAKIN’ STREAM of total noobs asking “i have _____ will it work with this game?”

    the whole point of system requirements is so that you can FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF.

    (seriously, i’ve been watching people ask this question for like 15 years.)

  9. Heh, I finally have a rig that can run this, have all sliders up with nary a FPS hit..
    Running an AMD Phenome II 2.8 GHZ 6 core 4 Gb DDR3 ATI 1gb 5770 and to think, this rig only ran me $1024 Shipping incl! Can’t wait til amazon delivers this to my doorstep! (^_-)

  10. THIS SUCKS…ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH A 5 HOUR DOWNLOAD JUST TO GET STARTED, WHAT WAS THE DVD IN THE BOX FOR IF I HAVE TO DOWN LOAD IT?
    THERE REALLY AREN’T ANY WORDS TO DESCRIBE MY DISAPPOINTMENT AT YOUR LAME ATTEMPT AT FORCING NET PLAY AND THE ROOT KIT THAT GOES WITH IT…

    LAME LAME LAME
