Fallout 4 Pipboy Edition made the crowds roar at E3 the moment Bethesda showed how the replica would look like on the arm.
What happened next was nothing unexpected. People came in rushing for it and preordered the game to get their hands on the wearable gadget for $119.99, and now all the stores are out of stock.
Pete Hines, vice president of public relations and marketing at Bethesda, was being asked what the developers were doing regarding the shortage of Fallout 4 Pipboy Edition. So he made a series of Tweets clarifying the situation and letting people know what they were up to.
First off, if you tried to buy a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition and failed because it was out of stock, Hines says that they “are trying to get some more Pip-Boy Editions to retail.”
Moving on, he added that “I don’t know which stores in which territories will have more,” in case you wanted to find out which store will you stand a greater chance of finding one at.
Just like it is with every product that is high in demand, people are trying to profit from it by buying multiple copies and trying to resell them when the stores go out of stock. Here’s what Hines tweeted with regards to that:
I am aware of folks grabbing multiple copies to turn around and sell on eBay. I have asked Bethesda store to review and address. I have talked to our Sales folks to make them aware and asked them to discuss with retailers as well. So, I’m aware and trying to help.
