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

2 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?
