If you were looking to purchase the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 you may be out of luck unless Bethesda decides to make more (that’s probably not happening). It looks like all of the pre-orders available in North America have been used up, so the limited quantities have run out.
If you watched E3 you must have seen the Pip-Boy that comes with this edition shown off, and it did seem to be popular with fans. With the ability to use your cell phone as the main interface and have it interact with the game this is a level of interactivity that may not have been just a little gimmick. I’m sure plenty of cosplayers took note of the release too.
For those who are lucky enough to have pre-ordered the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition the phones that will be compatible with the foam insert are iPhone 4/4S/5/5S and 6 with Samsung Galaxy 4 and 5 also compatible.
With this level of compatibility, there is no doubt that other phones will be compatible too as they all have a similar sort of design. Though the size of the phone will be important.
It should be noted that bigger models may be an issue as the dimensions of the Pip-Boy are designed to fit the same as in the game. The actual Pip-Boy companion app will still be available for these phones though and that should mean that even for people not lucky to have this edition, they can still use this app too.
And if you haven’t been able to grab one yet, Bethesda has clearly mentioned that they won’t be restocking those editions now. So yes, that’s kind of a bummer. I am pretty sure though, considering the limited quantity of this high demand product we will soon be seeing these editions sold at high prices at Amazon and Ebay.
