In a press statement issued this morning that stated all 3 previous DLC instalments that were exclusive to the Xbox 360 would be making it’s way to PSN in late June starting with Operation: Anchorage and the subsequent others to follow suit withing 4-6 weeks of each other.

Whew!!! That was alot of information. As evidenced by my previous reviews on Fallout 3 and the DLC (Review, Operation Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel), it’s very safe to say that I’m very very excited for the new DLC and for everyone playing Fallout 3 on the PS3. You’re in for a real treat.
