[ Game -> Update ] - More info on Game: Fallout 3

Killzig has pointed out in DAC's forums that the ever vigilant newsies at Joystiq have posted a big exclusive. It turns out that the Teaser Countdown on the official Fallout site is really......A Countdown To A Teaser! Straight from the source:

Remember all the joy you had speculating over Blizzard's countdown to Starcraft II? Were you heartbroken when Nintendo Power revealed what the Smash Bros. site would change before their clock went to zero?

Bethesda VP of Public Relations and Marketing Pete Hines dropped a spoiler in our mailbox this morning: a Fallout 3teaser trailer will be released next week, coinciding with the end of the countdown. Given the capitalized text that says TEASER next to do the countdown, we think it's safe to assume that this is the focal point of next week's revelations.

Safe to assume, indeed.

On a more serious note, it looks like we actually might get to see some real stuff in the trailer. Ashley Cheng dropped the following on his blog:

Crazy how fast time flies. Only one week left until the Fallout 3 teaser. I'm really excited about being able to show folks what we've been working on for the past few years. We've been running with the stealth drives on long enough, I think :)

If my guess is right, she'll have to de-cloak before she can fire.

Haha, those guys over at Joystiq are hilarious. I mean, that is a joke, right?

Right? icon_confused2

Hell. If this is a joke, it's bad, if it isn't... well, you can figure out the rest.

It`s also funny, how every stupid game magazine needs to explain what Fallout 1/2 was/is to those next gen kiddies readers, who have never heard of it.

Does anyone know if Bethesda has the rights to the entire FO series for, say, the sake of re-releases? Or did Interplay retain those rights?

Bethesda owns Fallout...totally. They can do whatever they want with it, except make an MMO until Interplay screws that up.

edit: whoops

Interplay has licensed the rights for re-releases of FO1, FO2, FOT and FOBOS from Bethesda, though.
