That's where Bethesda dropped the ball. Fallout wasn't just a setting, it had a tight rules system too. Just like D&D isn't just a setting. Bethesda doesn't like the restrictions that real RPG systems impose on their ADD addled target audience - Cimmerian

Pete Hines Comments On Court Case [ Company -> Update ]

News related to Top Story: Bethesda Comments On Court Case | More info on Person: Pete Hines | More info on Company: Bethesda v. Interplay

I asked Pete Hines if Bethesda had any comment on the recent court case decision which resulted in a loss for Bethesda. This is what he had to say:

This is a legal proceeding and we don’t comment publicly on the specifics of the dispute. The court has declined to decide the issues at a preliminary hearing, and determined that the parties should maintain the current status quo pending a trial of the case in 2010. We are confident that we will prevail on our claims against Interplay.

Although it was a major victory for Interplay, Bethesda wasn't really hurt by the court decision. If Bethesda has plans for a Fallout MMO, then this obviously means a bit more for them for the time being. As Pete indicates, this is still the "preliminary" proceedings, and there is still much in store for both parties.
