We’ve rounded up a few impressions below, and as more go live, we’ll link you.

In a chat on console RPG development between Irrational legend Ken Levine and Bethesda’s Todd Howard, the Fallout 3 boss has said console players want RPG experiences that are just as deep as their PC counterparts, but developers “need to ease them in a bit more.”
Levine, however, said console gamers just “don’t have the patience to wade through the introduction of systems.”

A blurb on Waterstones’ site for Elder Scrolls novel Infernal City has apparently dropped the bombshell that the next game’s set two centuries after Oblivion.
So it says: “A novel that takes places forty-five years after the Oblivion Crisis, which is the story of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion game and the expansion pack Shivering Isles. It partly bridges the gap for the next game, which is set 200 years after the Oblivion crisis.”
Or so it used to say, apparently. Looks as though someone’s done some quick editing. Thank Kotaku for spotting it.

Bethesda’s Todd Howard as confirmed that there is no Elder Scrolls V in the works.
“We are working on our next big game but we are not talking about it,” he told attendees at his keynote during QuakeCon 2009. He went on to say that there are no “current” plans for a fifth addition to the series.
Ok, that’s a bit better.
He did, however, say that there is always “a chance” that an MMO will be created for the series, but apparently it was said in a joking manner.
A “chance” is always better than a “hell no” any day of the week, but a new title for the single-player end is probably wanted by the masses first, Todd.

Bethesda’s said it’s likely to publish a new Elder Scrolls game in 2010.
“At the moment we’ve got Fallout 3 for this year and potentially there’s a new Elder Scrolls title in 2010,” said Bethesda publishing executive Paul Oughton.
“At the moment we’re not that interested in the Wii. We’re going to stick to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. We’ll continue to pursue three or four titles a year and go for big titles,” he said of the company’s publishing plans for the future.
The news will delight RPG fans hankering for an even nexter-genner Oblivion. Hopefully it’ll be set in stone soon.
