Users Report Fallout 3: Game Of The Year Edition Save Snafu

Bethesda Softwork's recently released "Game of the Year" edition of post-apocalyptic adventure Fallout 3 may have a little problem. Some owners of the Fallout 3 GOTY say the game won't recognise their hard-earned game saves.

According to reports from Kotaku tipsters affected by the save and posters on Bethsoft's official Fallout 3 forums, the problem appears to be limited to folks in Canada (with one from Sweden) who have the PlayStation 3 version of the re-release. Limited though it may appear to be, the inability to play with characters cultivated over dozens or hundreds of hours in the complete Fallout 3 package is understandably frustrating.

Fortunately, Bethesda Software appears to be investigating the issue.

"Wanted to let you know I've been working with folks here at the office to investigate the issues with GOTY in Canada," assures Bethesda's Sr. Community Manager. "When I have more details to share, I'll let you know. Stay tuned."

So, buyer beware, especially if you're from America's hat and have invested heavily in the original version of Fallout 3. Kotaku readers, who's having similar issues? Who's getting along in the wastelands without issue? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks to Wolfsong, Evan and everyone else for the tips.

    Aha! I was wondering about this.

    Does anyone really find this at all surprising?

    my husband plays this all the time and gets really frustated with it cus of all the glitches and freezing it does. he wanted it bad enough and now he hates it. i spent over 60.00 to get this game and its a piece of crap. its not worth paying that price for glitches and freezes. it sucks. he cant do any of the side quests for the aliens cus of all the freezing and glitching.

    Ive reached level 6 and ive just hit a major league glitch ... ive assigned my skill points but when it comes to choosing a perk the done option is greyed out and wont let me chose a perk therefore im stuck at that which is really frustrating does anybody know how or if i can fix this and if it means i will have to start the game again
