German Stores Are Giving Fallout 76 Away In Very Sad Promos

GameStop are running a promotion in Germany, Austria and Switzerland where anyone buying a used PlayStation 4 or Xbox One controller gets a free copy of the online shooter.

It’s not even a used copy. It’s a brand new copy of the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, and all you need to do is buy a used, official controller from either system.

Fallout 76 was originally retailing for €70 (it’s now been slashed to €30), while a new DualShock 4 is €53, so used ones are obviously cheaper.

GameStop aren’t the only German retailer having trouble moving the game, either; the big electronics chain Saturn are also giving copies of the game away with the Fallout 76 Xbox One bundle. Meaning you’d get an Xbox One, a copy of Fallout 76 and then ... another copy of Fallout 76.

I’ve linked the retailer’s bundle offer above there, but it’s funnier if you can see it:

    Online Shooter?

      What else would you call it? It's always-online, and it's not exactly an RPG.

        Dunno really..... maybe online survival or something? It’s definitely not a shooter though.

    It's not completely crazy to sell someone two copies of a co-op game: they keep one for themselves, and give the other to a friend they want to play with (who presumably already owns an Xbox).

      Cant imagine you'd have too many friends left after trying to give them a copy of Fallout 76

    Wow. Talk about a mess amirite?

    Well it's one way to boost player numbers I guess haha

    Coming soon... Bethesda selling bookmarks (digital ones, those real ones are like nylon bag expensive!) on their site with a free code for 76. But its still not free-to-play so don't worry guys.
