Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Collector’s Edition up for pre-order, costs many bottlecaps

1 min read


The highlight from today’s Bethesda conference was, without a doubt, Fallout 4. There was a lot to show, including a new crafting system, so straight out of Sims base building and a lot of canine shenanigans. But nothing really came close to the realisation that soon, we could all be using our very own Pip-Boy.

As you’d expect, Fallout 4 is getting a Collector’s Edition. And it’s a special one too, with a full-sized, smartphone carrying Pip-Boy of your own accompanying the game and some pretty quirky Vault-Tec documentation. It’s a Collector’s Edition that is, unsurprisingly, already up for pre-order here in the land of the free and select other markets. Not at home yet, but I wold expect it soon. Why would you want it? Well, you get to shunt your phone in there, and use an actual Pip-Boy as a second screen experience; with the Pip-Boy on your arm, synching up to the game. It’s a gimmick, but what a sweet gimmick it is.

But how much does it cost? Amazon already have their listings up for $120 – which is pricey, but certainly not the most outlandish we’ve seen with The Witcher 3 and Arkham Knight lately. It’s never a straight conversion here locally, so expect something closer to the R2000 mark when our limited quantities reach the digital marketplaces.

So yes, if you’re at all interested in snagging one, you’ll probably need to grab it as soon as local retailers start listing them. I know I’m breaking my “one collector’s a year” rule to get my hands on it. Will you?

    Sure, I’ll give them 2000 bottle caps for it.

    $120 might be too much for some, but for fans of Fallout, this is a dream come true! I think I’ll get two and give one as a gift to someone ;).

      Just a heads up; Amazon are already limiting them to one per account.

    W3 was R2.6k for PC, so R2k for that isn’t too bad really.

    Does your phone screen become the screen or does it have its own screen?
    Surely it will have its own screen.

      Your phone becomes the screen

        Interesting. It will probably have a “slide-in” stationary pic (?)(like in the image above) or it might look silly if your phone isn’t in. In a few years that function might be obsolete, but it’s still a cool gimmick.

      Best hope there’s not a change in the release date ๐Ÿ˜‰
      All things aside though, you might have a really good idea there.

        Best hopes indeed.

        Helps that I’m “single”. Prefer to work through December. So leave to play and continue during December work.

          I also tend to work through December each year. Roads are nice and quiet too.

    Can you still install the app on your phone even if you dont buy this edition, duct tape the phone to your arm?

      Yes. It just won’t be as cool or fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    keep an eye out, just in the last 3 hours I have seen 12 pip boy CE available since it was sold out, Because it is limited to one per person I am sure It wont be too hard to obtain but you will have to keep a very close watch which I have seen many times sold out until release date then place back on Amazon selling double or triple the retail price, then there is eBay but I’m not even going there.
