The PS3 is pretty cheap and there are many cheap bundles of games, I
I recently played and beat both New Vegas and Fallout 3 on PS3.
Having played both on 360 the difference was noticeable. The graphics were pretty much the same but the PS3 versions were more prone to glitches and freezes from my experience.
That being said i put 30+ hours into each game on PS3, and was mostly issue free for the most part. New Vegas froze once, and had a few minor glitches and Fallout 3 froze 3 times i think and again had some minor glitches. But both versions also had some slowdown from time to time, which didn't happen AS often on 360 from MY experience.
PC is obviously the best choice, and i think the 360 versions are also superior but its not unplayable on PS3, and Fallout has minor issues across all platforms.
I had a PS3 Slim mind you, and it performed admirably. You can get a PS3 for cheap and the games for dirt cheap. Certainly worth it.
Both games have been patched and have been quite playable for years. Must plays, some of the best games last generation.
Fallout 3 is a MUST play even though it might freeze a few times. You can easily play for 100 hours if this is your first time.
From what I heard, it has an unfixable glitch where your game gets more prone to bugs the bigger your save file gets until it becomes unplayable. Still, you should be able to beat it just fine.
True, i didn't start having major issues with Fallout 3 on PS3 until i was like 30 hours in. And i had just started Broken Steel.
I ended up ordering it. I love the setting and their previous games.
It sounds like how epic the game is, it makes up for the glitches.
Thanks for the replies.
Started playing Fallout again to clean up some achievements. Almost forgot how addicting this game is.
New Vegas would freeze on me often. I'm guessing FO3 would be worse. I still finished it so I mean it's a nuisance but not unbearable. Just make multiple save slots.
It ran okay on my PS3. Of course, you'd get freezes every now and then, so it's good to save often. Also, I hear it's pretty bad on the GoTY edition.
loved the game I'm going to play it now just thinking about it
I don't think it's a bug, just when your save file reaches ~12mb+ the immense amount of information saved causes your game to run sluggishly/crash.
I've had several save files on both 3 and NV reaching above and beyond that point and they were still perfectly playable, although very annoying sometimes. Especially during the DLCs.
If it's really acting up you can quit out to the title screen and clear your cache to improve the gameplay for awhile.
Saw this in another forum:
Pretty much any Bethesda is going to be unplayable on consoles. If you must play Fallout 3, look into investing for a PC.
If its unplayable on consoles why did i put 50+ hrs into both Fallout 3 and New Vegas on 360, and beat all DLC for both with minor issues?
Get a PC if you want a experience with "less" issues and improved visuals, and access to mods.
But the games are playable on console, such a dumb statement to make.
played it on the ps3 when it came out. no freezes, some pop-ups. it's not unplayable nor did it have game changing performance issues. it's a great game with an ugly engine, even for 08.
skyrim was the mother of all bitches on ps3. unplayable when the file size reached a certain number, but fallout 3 was def playable.
Because you had to keep starting over due to gamebreaking bugs?
No, never had to start over. Not on 360 or PS3 what the fuck are you even talking about?
Reading this thread makes me glad I quit that game soon as I got out of the vault
Boring and unplayable due to glitches?
