Last week Fallout fans who ordered their Pip-Boy Edition from Game in the UK ran into problems. It looks like Game weren’t the only one having issues getting these special versions of the game to the people who ordered them.
These issues were collated by Kotaku who revealed that one company who had issues were GameStop who released a statement on the matter:
“Due to an unforeseen shipping issue, a small number of orders for the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition were delayed by one day. We were able to ship these items today and affected customers will have the game shortly. We are working vigilantly to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
Problems weren’t just encountered by GameStop customers though as Amazon, Target, and even Bethesda themselves also failed to deliver the Pip-Boy Editions on time. This was made clear by plenty of fans on social media platforms such as Twitter where Bethesda were getting plenty of replies when they asked fans about the game:

With such a big release and so much hype built around it, it is understandable for fans to be annoyed that their Pip-Boy Editions didn’t make it on time. Especially when they paid extra money to get such a limited edition version of the game.
