Looks like some forthcoming downloadable missions take place in the good old Burgh:

The Pitt
The second pack, titled The Pitt and available for the PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game, sees the player journey to the industrial raider town located in the remains of Pittsburgh, and is scheduled for release in February 2009.

(from the Wikipedia entry on Fallout 3)

I wonder if they will put Burgh locations and/or easter eggs for locals. Maybe a terrible towel in a drawer somewhere. LOL.

That would rock. Games should allow customization and user-generated content...ie someone can write a modpack that puts that stuff in the Pittsburgh version of the game.

The Civ series keeps getting better at that.

Actually Fallout does...it's made by Bethesda who made Oblivion...and there was a strong mod community for that game. Fallout 3 is based on the same game engine and already has a built in mod integration piece as well as a forthcoming mod tool you can download.

So...don't be suprised.

So I played through the Fallout 3 expansion entitled "The Pitt". It takes pace in Pittsburgh and the bridges are there as well as Mt Washington with the inclines.

No Heinz field or other landmarks other then the Monongahela river and the bridges. Keep in mind that the Fallout 3 universe is an alternate world that assumed nuclear war in the 1950's...so, anything after that was altered. So, if anything, there would be Forbes field...but it isn't in the game as you are pretty much limited to the Station Square area, what appears to be the 10th street bridge and downtown.

You do go in a working Steel mill, though.
