Today at its E3 conference, Bethesda announced the 'Pip-Boy' pre-order edition of Fallout 4. People got excited.
Here's the bad news: the Pip-Boy Edition is exclusive to EB Games.
Meaning if you want the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4, along with the wearable Pip-Boy merchandise, you will have to purchase it through EB Games, you won't be able to go through any other Australian retailer.
For me? It's as good an excuse as any to pass on the Pip-Boy edition. If you're a dedicated Fallout fan I understand the appeal, but I can't see myself using the Pip-Boy accessory for anymore than five minutes, particularly if the app works on the phone with or without it. Also, I'm not a fan of pre-ordering video games in general, particularly when it's tied into weird store exclusives. I'll be skipping this one I think.
