Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition Sold Out Almost Everywhere
War never changes, and scalpers never do either as Fallout 4's Pip-Boy Collector's Edition gets harder and harder to find.
Ever since Bethesda announced that Fallout 4's Collector's Edition would feature a fully functional Pip-Boy that you could lock your smartphone into and play with, fans have gone ballistic for this awesome accessory. Kotaku reports that the Collector's Edition of Fallout 4 is pretty much sold out everywhere (within days of it being announced), and the only places you can find them are from third-party vendors/scalpers selling them for inflated prices (and the game hasn't even launched yet). Within the first week of the Pip-Boy being announced, it is now unavailable from Amazon, Best Buy, Target, GameStop and most other major retailers.
The Collector's Edition, which costs $119.99 and comes with a few other goodies, features a life-sized Pip-Boy that you can wear on your wrist. You can also put your phone in it, which perfectly integrates with the upcoming Fallout 4 Pip-Boy app and will work directly with your main game. As you would expect, everyone wants one. Even worse, for every person wanting one, there's a scalper wanting five or six of them. People have been buying them in bulk, which Bethesda Vice President Pete Hines is trying to stop by putting a limit on how many Pip-Boy Editions people can buy, which will occasionally free up some Collector's Editions for those watching online retailer websites like hawks.
Fallout 4 will launch on Nov. 10 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Good luck!
