Based on the leaked Nintendo E3 list.

https://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2018/05/17/possible-leak-outs-fallout-3-anniversary-edition-could-be-coming-to-ps4/amp/

One game that caught my eye was Fallout 3 Anniversary. I’d love for this to come to not only Switch but X1 and PS4 with the kind of makeover that Skyrim got and mod support.

Fallout 3 was one of my favorite games from last gen and while it is playable as BC on the X1 it would no doubt be a better experience as a native game and PS4 users have no such option.

In short I’d love for this to happen.

And New Vegas.

Thoughts?

This is interesting as I am basically a console only gamer (ps4), but very recently I got a cheap gaming laptop and have been playing Fallout New Vegas with mods for visual enhancements, bug fixes, QoL etc. I can do the same for Fallout 3. So unless they remake the whole game in the newer FO4 engine with tons of bug fixes, I personally don't see the point, especially with the mod restrictions on the PS4. Though I could see the appeal to gamers that don't want to pc game at all.

It would also have appeal to trophy/achievement hunters. Never underestimate them.

I have been hoping for a remake of Fallout 3 or NV with PSVR support like Skyrim VR. Even without it I would definitely buy both of these if re-released with some performance improvements.

New Vegas for X1X please. I already feel like I have Fallout 3 remastered on the X with the BC enhancements.

Congrats to Switch owners if this is true...would be fantastic to play on there.

You realize that the amount of people with an X1X is very small compared to the 100+ million PS4/X1 users.

Is this your favorite thing to point out? You listed X1X/PS4 in the thread title and I am just following up on that man?
It is my favorite thing to point out because people stupidly act like an enhanced version of the game that is only playable an X1X is “enough”.

For the record I wouldn’t expect the Anniversary edition on an X1X to look night and day better than the enhanced version of the original Fallout 3 looks now.

You asked for thoughts. I gave one. New Vegas would be better all around and I wouldn’t have to rebuy an anniversary edition of Fallout 3. Because I am stupid enough to do it I guess.

now im pretty sure that nintendo leak is BS. but i'd gladly take a fallout 3 remaster for modern gen if we're playing hte hypothetical card. I missed out on it and skipped fallout 4 due to the impressions

I'll pass, but that spells New Vegas.

It would be cool if the switch version included 1&2 as extras you play in handheld using the touch screen or make the joystick move the mouse.

Obsidian could then show love with Pillars of Eternity1/2 & Tyranny.

Don't wake me up please, cuz im just dreaming.

Edit!!!: Pillars of Eternity II Platforms: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows, Macintosh

This means maybe the other highly unlikely things could be true too!

Rumor: Fallout 3: Anniversary on Switch.
Fact: They will try to charge $60 for it

I loved Fallout 3 so much, I will probably pay it.

Although I will get it on X1X or PS4Pro

There is little doubt it will cost $60 on release. Skyrim SE sold at that price and sold really well.

I’d love for it to cost $40 or less, but that is unlikely.

Good news if that if you don’t want to pay $60, you can wait for it to go on sale. The Skyrim SE frequently went on sale.

There is no way in hell I'd buy that for more than $20. That said, best wishes to those who do want it that much!

And it appears that this rumor may well be true.




I suppose it could be Fallout 5 (or New Vegas 2), but that is very hard to believe unless it was handed off to another studio (Obsidian please!)

Hopefully not. Could just play FO3 on PC. We really need a new TES or FO announced and preferably released this year.

I would really like a Fallout 1 Remake have the gameplay of Fallout New Vegas I'd be happy.
Could that qualify as a remake since they are two completely different genres? It would more or less be a reimagining.

Fuck 10 year old games full of bugs and glitches etc. made by Bethesda on new systems. Bethesda doesn't know what remaster really is, they're just selling 5-10 year old games at exact same state in which they were at the time of last official patch and that's it. Oh, wait, that's not all, you can also buy mods for these games using real money! HOO-FUCKIN'-RAY!

Yea that would be a remake. As you take the Story and Location of Fallout 1 but have the gameplay style of New Vegas. It would be more accessible to modern day audiences.

I enjoyed the Skyrim SE and would love Fallout 3 to get rereleased.

I am pretty damn excited about the possibility regardless of what you say.

HOO-FUCKIN-RAY!!!!!

We need new Fallout every year ! We can't live without Fallout !

Next year Fallout 5, year after new Shelter version, and a year after a year after new spin off game by another studio. Then rinse repeat. Please ?
