Rumor: Fallout 3 bound for 360?

Is the anticipated third installment of the Fallout series going to see the light of day on the Xbox 360? It's too early to tell right now, but there are a few things that will give gamers a glimmer of hope. After a brief interlude with Fallout Tactics, the popular RPG franchise is getting a true sequel from Bethesda. Executive Producer Todd Howard informed UK OXM that when work started on Fallout 3 in 2004, the team was only 10 or so strong. After Oblivion finished up, however, most of the staff moved over to work on development for the title. He also hints that while their preproduction process is relatively long, they should soon be able to show it off. Running on the same Gamebryo engine as Oblivion, the chances of there being a port to Xbox 360, with open ended gameplay intact, are high. On top of that, Todd was Executive Producer for Morrowind and Oblivion, which definitely makes the glass look half full. Do you want to see Fallout 3 make it to the Xbox 360?

2. you are a bad bad man to be generating false fallout 3 news. i almost crapped my pants when i saw the words fallout 3, only to be sorely disappointed by the following news. fallout 3 for 360 would be pretty damn sweet though.

3. I fell in perpetual love with fallout with there very first campy game intro with the 50's stylized pictures.

4. I hope it isn't as shallow an exercise as Oblivion was. The linear paths on all the quest lines was a huge disappointment. Fallout deserves better.

5. Now that would be hot.

6. Oh, don't worry guys. The xbox has been the best platform for bethesda since morrowind. of course bethesda is going to make a 360 fallout.

7. Bethesda would be leaving a lot of money on the counter to not develop Fallout 3 for the 360. Given such close ties to the PC platform, it just wouldn't make sense for it not to show up on 360 at some point.

Gritty RPGs with adult themes belong on the 360. Leave the Final Fantasy styled adventures for other consoles.

8. Do I want to wake tomorrow morning? Do I want to watch hockey again? Do I ever want to get laid again? Do I want to play Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360....the aswer to all of the above is a resounding YES!!!

I recently told a friend that the only game that may draw me back to PC gaming would be Fallout3 (and maybe Diablo 3, if it is not an MMO).

9. I never played either of the fallouts, but to hear my friend's stories of the games...It sounds like heaven to tell you the truth...and in the Oblivion style? F*** yeah!

10. What body parts (besides arms - I'll need them to play) do they want to make this a reality?
