The equipment provided by the company was used to document the training and preparation leading to the final Atlantis journey. However, out of the above mentioned equipment only the 3DA1 camcorder made it on the shuttle in space."

Fallout 3 DLC Coming To the PS3, New Content Announced 71 71

Posted by Soulskill
from the more-like-latestation dept.
Bethesda has announced that their packs of downloadable content for Fallout 3, previously only available to Xbox 360 and PC owners, will soon be coming to the PS3. "Operation: Anchorage will be released for PS3 in late June, followed by the release of The Pitt and Broken Steel 4-6 weeks apart." They also confirmed the existence of new DLC packs that will arrive on a similar time frame. Point Lockout will allow players to "explore a massive new swampland area filled with new quests and content," while Mothership Zeta lets you "experience an alien abduction first hand and find out if you're tough enough to survive."

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
