Bethesda+Atari=No Quest Pack For PS3 Fallout.

Quote:
Originally Posted by GamePlayer
When Red Ant – a young distributor with a killer catalogue that over-extended itself just before the economic slump – went under a lot of important overseas developers found themselves without a local docking point. Capcom was probably the most high-profile of these developers given that Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5 were, at the time, about to be released, but luckily the rights were quickly snapped up by THQ and we all got our grubby mits on the games.

Midway was another genuine player to find itself without a home, but subsequent financial troubles of its own has lessened the effect on gamers. In the end Ubisoft looks to have picked up what remains on their release schedule, recently pushing out The Wheelman.

Just as big, Bethesda Softworks also found the locks changed and the doors bolted shut on its Aussie home and had, to date, attempted to run their downunder operation remotely from the UK. While this has managed to have only a minor affect on the media – in fact our own Adam Mathew is currently in London checking out Rogue Warrior – to consumers it has proved a frustration. We went down to Bondi Junction’s huge JB Hi-Fi earlier in the week and discovered not a single Fallout 3 in stock. Obviously the distribution channels have run dry in the months since Red Ant’s demise.

Atari however may have scored the prize. A release schedule issued today by the company highlighted the fact by providing re-release dates for Fallout 3 on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Expect your local retailer to be flooded again with copies of this incredibly popular game on the 21st of May. In addition, the Fallout 3: Quest Pack 1 – presumably a collection of the DLC released for the game – will also be released in box form on June 4th. Although that is only for Xbox 360 and PC – despite the fact that the Fallout 3 exclusivity arrangement – read Microsoft direct debit - extends only to downloadable content, even in box form it’s no dice for PS3 fans.

Whether this Fallout 3 distribution is the ‘announcement’ of a long-term agreement or merely a case of testing the waters remains to be seen, but it is another feather in Atari’s cap. Towards the end of 2008 with critical flops Tomb Raider and Alone in the Dark stinking up the scene the local Atari office looked a little shaky. The publisher snapped up some of the franchises kicked to the curb following the Vivendi/Activision merger - including The Chronicles of Riddick and Ghostbusters - as well as the mighty Konami, who had also been left stranded when Red Ant closed down.


Thoughts?
