Fallout 3 Discussion
Trainer Tools and Resources
Reason I'm considering the PC version is because it's substantially cheaper than its 360 counterpart.
Also, I'd like to know if the game would work fine with my specs:
Windows XP SP3
Intel Quad-Core CPU Q6600 2.4Ghz
nVidia 9800GTX 512MB vRAM
Thanks in advance, Merry Christmas everyone.
I got it for the PC, and as a stock game its just as buggy and as unstable as an over-modded Oblivion. I prefer PC because I have more direct control over aiming. And my monitor is WAAY bigger than my TV.
It's up to you. The PC version needs a lot more patches to become fully stable, but the 360 version will always be as steady as a rock.
Another thing, when the mods start poring in, you won't be able to use them on the 360.

well in my case i have the PC version with already almost 100 mods installed (including new 4000x4000 pixel textures) and i get no crashes or problems with the game or LIVE what-so-ever.
With that said. PC no matter what even if you do get bugs. Reasoning why:
1) Better graphics, PC is already capable of running Fallout 3 better than the 360 and texture mods make it look even better.
2) 5000 mods already out. NOTHING for the 360.
3) The upcoming DLC is exclusive to both the 360 and PC LIVE so we still get all that too.
So you go for the 360 you only get the Bethesda DLC. you go for the PC and you get about 100 mods a week (or more) and the Bethesda DLC. easy choice IMO.

Well, I can only compare it to pictures of the 360 version and that isn't the same thing of course...
Anyways, go with the pc
I've got all the eye candy mods installed, high res textures for just about everything, looks great and frame rates are most excellent.
I'm sure if I go much higher in screen resolution, then stuttering may indeed occur
Another note, I no longer use any 32-bit OS's so I run a dual-boot with XP Pro 64-Bit and Vista Business 64-bit, not run into any problems so far....
