Fallout looks great but still not $60 great. I will wait for the cheaper used prices after 2 months.

Gears 2 is the only game I will fork over full price for this year.

I've waited for this game for years. Its a pity Bethesda turned it into Oblivion FPS style.

I'll probably pick it up eventually, but considering all the games coming out this fall...
Infinite Undiscovery, Fable 2 and Gears 2 are higher on my list.

AFter starting MGS4, I kind of wish I could play the previous 3 now. Too bad I don't have a PS2 for MGS3 though. I sure am not buying one and paying the extra $100 for a PS3 wouldn't have been worth it just to play one game either.

REALLY?!!!;)

The cut scenes are too long for my taste but I am enjoying the story in 4. The elevator cut was really dumb though. Cutscene to go in. You get to jump into the shaft, then a cutscene coming out.

The only game I anticipate buying in the next few months is Gears 2.

Fallout looks nice though.

Wait until you get to the last fight..it's epic, especially if you've played any of the previous MGS.

I do. I bought it to play Vice City and used it sparingly (Madden, mostly) during and after grad school. PM me if you're interested.

Not that I am aware of. I am not looking to buy a console for literally only one game though. I will just wait and see if it becomes available on PSN some day.

Release Date Announced
Fallout 3 Available October 28

Major Launch Planned for the Winner of E3 2008’s “Best of Show”

August 20, 2008 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, announced today that its highly anticipated title, Fallout® 3, will be available on store shelves and online in North America on October 28, 2008 and in Europe on October 31, 2008. Developed at Bethesda Game Studios – creators of the 2006 Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion® – Fallout 3 is slated for release on the Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.

“We are very excited to let gamers get their hands on Fallout 3, the latest chapter in this beloved and highly acclaimed franchise,” said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. “To meet the huge demand for this title by our fans worldwide, we are planning one of the biggest launches of any game released this year.”

Fallout 3 features one of the most realized game worlds ever created. Set more than 200 years following a nuclear war, you can create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of Washington, D.C. however you choose. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland.

Hailed as one of the most anticipated games for 2008, Fallout 3 has already won numerous awards including Best of Show from the official Game Critics Awards at E3 2008, a selection voted on by an independent group of journalists from 36 leading North American media outlets that cover the videogame industry.

I was just thinking you might be able to borrow one for MGS3 for a few weeks to play MGS3 if one of your friends had one laying around.

Oh, I responded to the wrong post. The guy after you sounded like he wanted to sell his.

Yeah, I wish there were someone I could just borrow it from. I know one person but their daughter would never part with her Dance Revolution for a couple weeks. heh.

It would be worth it to pickup a PS2 for Shadow of the Colossus alone..
I picked up a PS2 (fat model) from a seller on craigslist for $30.
