Bethesda Can’t Make Anymore Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Editions
We've got some bad news for anyone who hasn't ordered the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4.
Polygon reports that Bethesda's Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing, Pete Hanes, said that the company manufacturing its limited edition run of wrist-mounted Pip-Boy replicas can't make any more, regardless of how many other people are out there wanting to buy one. The facilities making these smartphone-holding replicas for the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition have already reached their limit going into the game's November launch. The manufacturers have other production runs to make and other things their plate, so they can only produce a finite amount of Pip-Boys, which meets the number of ones already pre-ordered, and that's it.
"We'd go back to [the factories] and say 'Demand for this is insane, we've got to make more.'" Hines said. "[Their] final answer: 'Sorry, this is as many as we can make.' And we sold every single one of those that we could."
Of course, the $119.99 Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 is already being listed on eBay by scalpers who pre-ordered them in bulk, being sold at prices averaging at around $275 and some going over $500. The Pip-Boy Edition is sold out everwhere, including Best Buy, Target, Walmart, GameStop, Amazon and most other noteworthy video game retail stores and websites.
I suggest that if you see a Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 show up for sale anywhere online, get it while you can, and let me know where you found it. Fallout 4 (including the Pip-Boy Edition pre-orders) will launch on Nov. 10 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
