The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was a big Game of the Year winner in 2006. Fallout 3 took many Game of the Year accolades in 2008. Now Bethesda is releasing both games in a special double pack at a significantly reduced rate – but not for the PlayStation 3.
The double pack will be available on the Xbox 360 and PC for $29.99 and $19.99 respectively but there’s no mention of a PS3 version in the blog post announcing the deal. The pack will be released on April the 3rd in the US, with no mention of an EU launch either.
So, is Bethesda saying that it’s not worth re-releasing these classics on the PS3, financially or is this an admission that the studio’s PS3 offerings have always been host to a few more problems than their Xbox 360 and PC releases? Perhaps they just don’t want to engage with PS3 owners who are still quite upset that Skyrim isn’t up to scratch on their console?
