Bethesda is suing interplay over the proposed fallout MMO, because Interplay had not shown full scale work on the game by April 4th 2009.

 

Bethesda appears to be using this to yank the IP from under the MMO (similar to what happened to champions (which was originally Marvel's mmo)) because Interplay wasn't living up to it's end of the supposed deal.

Victor of the 5 year fan fic competition!

 

Kevin Butler will awesome your face off.

Anyway, smells like Bethesda wants to make a Fallout MMO.

 

They just want the IP, because when they purchased rights for Fallout IP only for single player games, with some sort of clause, that if Interplay does not show enough work done on their MMO, the whole fallout goes to Bethesda... But iirc the date was set to be around 2010... I might be wrong about the date, because i read article about it more than few years ago...

How is that more believable than them wanting the IP to make money from it?

Especially after 3 DLC's, New Vegas to shut up the old fans, and maybe making a movie.

I really do wonder if these DLC's were truly the "other half" of the game that got cut, according to Todd.

 

New Vegas to shut up the old fans

 

I give them credit for this, now it's up to obsidian.

 

maybe making a movie.

NV and the movie plans (specifically that they reserved the trademarks) were announced at the same time, which incidentally was the reason I stopped caring for FO.

I wonder how you make a desolate wasteland with thousands of players trying to complete the exact same quests and tasks as yourself..

 

 

if they instance it properly, it might work good :facepalm:

They may want to make money from it, but they may also want to make sure no one else makes money off of it (or creates what could be a competing product with the IP)

Having "unless you do something with this within X years, we get it back" in a publishing or licensing contract is very common. Bethesda shouldnt have to sue Interplay, they should just have given the rights back

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.

Single-player instances as in Guild Wars.

 

Then it would be MMO in the name only! IN THE NAME ONLY!!!

IIRC, Bethesda are also suing over the Fallout Trilogy being sold, because the name is "confusingly similar" to Fallout 3... if you have an IQ of about 4.

This particularly rapid, unintelligible patter isn't generally heard, and if it is, it doesn't matter.

Sorry, but I have to agree with Bethesda on this one. There are any number of look-alike packages out there that attempt to trip up consumers who are buying gifts for people or simply see something without realizing it's not precisely what they're looking for. Calling something the "Fallout Trilogy" and putting it out on shelves just after Fallout 3 comes out, without including Fallout 3 in the package, is going to be confusing to people. Maybe not you or I, but I can definitely see someone reading about Fallout 3 or hearing about it from a friend, seeing the Fallout Trilogy on the shelf at Target, and picking it up, thinking they got a deal. (Although hopefully they get a blast out of FO1 and 2.)

 

Another good recent example of look-alike products and packaging.

Excuse me while I'm over here not caring.

 

Anyone wanting any of the Fallouts should get them from Good Old Games and stop supporting the putrid husk of a store that is Gamestop & Co.

Just for the record, the two covers:

From the link I posted:

 

Bethesda also takes issue with Interplay's licensing of Fallout games to digital distribution services Good Old Games (GOG), GameTap and Steam, which Interplay was said never to have sought approval or permission for. Basically, Bethesda takes issue with pretty much everything Interplay seems to be doing with the pre-Fallout 3 releases, believing they cannibalize sales of Fallout 3.
