Gstaff here with a couple news items for New Vegas.

Up first, the game is now available for purchase on Xbox LIVE’s Games On Demand service. You can purchase it directly through LIVE, or by visiting Xbox.com.

In other news, be sure to visit our forums for updates on the game from senior producer Jason Bergman. In a post from earlier this month, he gave a status report on New Vegas DLC and incoming game updates. Regarding the latter, today he’s posted details on the balance tweaks being introduced in Monday’s Steam update. For those playing on consoles, we’re still waiting to hear on the exact date it’ll be available for you… stay tuned.

Update (4/30): The update should be available worldwide on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Regarding the Xbox 360 update, the new game update is live for the game.

Thank you for your patience on this matter.

Fallout 3 now available on Xbox LIVE

As mentioned last week, Fallout 3 is available today on Xbox LIVE’s Games on Demand service for $29.99 in North America and Asia (except Japan, Korea and India).

Since a few folks asked, I thought I’d mention that this version of the game will work with Fallout 3 DLC you’ve purchased on your 360. That’s right, you can go completely digital.

And in case you missed it, Oblivion is also available via Games on Demand.
