Fallout: New Vegas Using Steamworks

A Fallout: New Vegas Fan Interview on the Bethesda Softworks Forums has info on the upcoming Fallout game from the game's producers and developers. Included is an answer from Jason "loonyboi" Bergman on the game's use of Steamworks (thanks VG247). Word is: "Fallout: New Vegas will fully utilize the Steamworks SDK. This means that retail PC copies will activate via Steam. We are also using Steam for achievements and other features (but not multiplayer, of course. FNV remains a single player only game)."

That's odd. My copy of Fallout 3 DOES require the CD to be in the drive.
The only time it does a CD check is if you run the FalloutLauncher.exe. If you run the Fallout3.exe it skips the CD check.

Read your comment .. tried it - Nope , it still shows the Securom dialog asking for my CD.

EDIT : On a hunch I updated the game to the lastest 1.7 version and now Fallout3.exe doesn't ask for the CD anymore.
It seems that somewhere between the 1.1 release I was using and the 1.7 release they quietly removed the CD check from Fallout3.exe (though not from the launcher as you wrote).
This is not mentioned in the changelog anywhere.
