  1. Thank you for forgetting the audience that gave such success to the fallout franchise. Its despicable that Bethesda would treat us pc gamers like we are 2nd class.

    • It’s about time someone treated Console a tiny bit better. They’re always second class. Stop complaining. Console plyers deal with it. :I

    • you have to remember that most (if not all)PC gamers that gave success to the fallout franchise already have Fallout 3 as well as New Vegas and maybe even the classic fallout games. Now, I’d agree if the pre-order package had something bigger, but it’s just Fallout 3.

  2. What if you peordered the game prior to this announcement and does fallout 3 include the dlc made for it?

  3. Is this offer just for new pre-orders or will Fallout 3 be included in previous pre-orders from retailers (Amazon/GameStop/Best Buy)

  4. Would people who preorder it from a retailer or Amazon also get fallout 3 for free? Cause I ordered the pipboy Ed for the xbone from Amazon..

  5. Ok i pre ordered the game for xbox one how do I get the fallout 3 for xbox one I ordered the game threw game stop also Any chance of adding a car to fallout 4 I know kinda later for a request but eh I tried also can’t wait for the game awsome job guys sucks on the pip boys but fall out shelter is awsome

    • Nope, as the PS4 does not support backwards compatibility, and won’t for the foreseeable future. At least that’s the answer Sony gave. It’s the system that is providing the backwards compatibility, not the game. Fallout 3 that comes with Fallout 4, is the same game you can go out and buy at Gamestop.

      Sony is focused on PS Now, and because of that, they don’t want to go for backwards compatibility. As much as I would love it, and I don’t care at all for PS Now, backwards compatibility on the PS4 is near impossible. Emulating the PowerPC-based architecture games (360) to x86 is A LOT easier (it’s hard) than emulating the PS3’s architecture, Cell, to x86.

      Microsoft had trouble with trying to do it for easily over a year. Something that is far more alien to x86 like Cell, is going to be near impossible, or just not worth the cost. The cost was the reason they stopped producing the backwards compatible PS3s.

  6. Is the fallout 3 included with pre-order of fallout 4 the GOTY version with all DLC’s included?

  7. So does anyone know if the Fallout 3 download will come as Goty Edition. Or do we need to buy all the Dlc for it

  8. Do I get a code for preordering at GameStop or is this only for the xbox one digital version? BTW thank you for mod support on xbone!! I’m not sure what sort of voodoo magic this is but I’m not complaining, although being I own both consoles I’d love to see this feature come to all platforms.

  9. Well I got fallout 3 already I just want to know of thier is anything special happening for the ps4 game? It just would nice if those of us with a ps4 are going to get anything.

  10. When I first read

    S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Perk for Pre-Ordering Fallout 4 on Xbox One!

    I suddenly got very worried there was actually going to be a pre-order perk for purchasing on Xbox One.

    Please don’t ever do that.

    Don’t ever make pre-order DLC. Please don’t ever make console-exclusive content. You guys have always been better than that.

    Please keep being awesome.

  11. Quick Q on the XBoxOne Preoder: I have looked and can’t quite tell…is the xbox one preorder a physical or download? I just don’t want to deal with a physical item if I can help it. But if I do have to, I would rather order it to a store so I can just pick it up and not deal with whether UPS/Fedex is up to their usual crap.

    Much thanks

  12. Hey,

    Is this for UK customers too? Can’t see it mentioned anywhere. I pre-ordered through GAMEs website.


  13. Confused. Will it be in preorder. Cause i sold my 360 and games. Witch sucks now that thwu alow backwards compatability. So i cant download until they make it work on xbox one.

  14. I have both PS4 and X1 and every cross platform title I have plays better on X1 so I will be getting this on X1. I had forgotten how nice XBL ran until I picked up a used copy of Destiny to compare the 2 consoles. Destiny looks the same on both consoles but it runs much better on the X1, PSN is garbage and not worth the 50$ a year I pay them. XBL is the superior network and I don’t see PSN getting better anytime soon. Most of the games that the X1 can’t run in 1080p don’t run on the PS4 in 1080p either.
