If you’re still playing Fallout 3 on your Xbox 360 (and I see no reasons why you shouldn’t), you should get the latest patch (and hope it won’t crash your game in the end). However, if everything goes well and Bethesda won’t become your number one enemy, you’ll get a better looking Fallout 3 game. For real!
According to the eagle eyes over at Digital Foundry, the latest Fallout 3 patch adds some specular lighting for the Xbox 360 edition of the game. In other words, everything in the Wastelands will look a bit shinier and more detailed – but this doesn’t mean that the lower resolution textures are no longer there. However, it’s a better looking game overall and that should be enough. Right?
