Fallout 4 definitely a current-gen exclusive

Fallout 4 coming to older consoles?

E3 is only kicking off next week, but we were all treated to a little pre-warm up with all the deliciously great gaming news last week. Top of the crop had to be the reveal of Fallout 4 – which only spawned even more rumours about its gameplay, setting and, more importantly, platforms. The latter of which has finally been cleared all up.

Following various reports that, despite the reveal trailer, Fallout 4 would make it to older-generation consoles, Bethesda has cleared the air. Responding to posts on NeoGAF, Bethesda global community manager, Matt Grandstaff, made it crystal clear that the highly anticipated sequel would only be possible on the most recent hardware out there.

“It is not coming to 360 and PS3, the stuff we’re doing will never work there,”

And that is that. The biggest source of multiple rumours regarding the RPG spawned from a single, extensive Reddit post from an apparent ex-Bethesda employee. Late last week Kotaku distanced themselves from the leak that mentioned them directly – stating that most of the information within was as credible as their apparent connection to it. The same leak that was adamant Fallout 4 would make it to Xbox 360 and PS3.

Despite the rather saddening discussions around the visual representation of the debut trailer (I personally think it was an honest, far more vibrant take on the wasteland), it seems that Fallout 4 will feature some technical aspects not fit for aged hardware. Considering the size of open-world titles lately, that’s not too surprising either.
