I have it for PS3. The game looks good on the system, but be warned that there is a serious framerate issue on the PS3 for a lot of users. After playing for awhile, as your save file gets bigger, the game starts going into major lag after very short periods of play. It can become unplayable in extreme instances, and at best you wind up having to restart the game avery hour or 2 in many cases. They have promised a fix for this in the next patch, but the same issue has been present throughout FO3's DLCs, through New Vegas, and Skyrim, where the last patch was supposed to address the issue (which it did help a bit in my case). It's never been fixed for any of those games, so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the next patch on this one either.

Originally i had issues with game crashing however upon taking off autosave, my game has not crashed once. As far as framrate, i played 4 hours on Friday, with minimal issues although there are some espcially in crowed areas. I have not played any other versions however, the mod file for Midas magic looks sick and if my comp could handle it i would have preffered it on a comp.
