Chatting with CVG, Bethesda's Pete Hines talks a bit about development of Fallout 3
and how downloadable content will play a roll in the game's future. In general, Hines says that the studio wants to focus all their energy on the core game, making it the best it can be and if they don't get that right then "nobody's going to want to download anything for it anyway". But Hines' attitude towards DLC isn't completely off, saying that after development wraps up on the game and bug testing kicks off, then the dev team will start looking at their Fallout 3
DLC possibilities. So, we wouldn't expect to see Fallout 3
content hitting the Marketplace the week of or weeks after release. Shucks.
