Fallout 4 Deluxe Pip-Boy is the collector’s edition toy, but better

Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Deluxe

Did you spend your life savings (and potentially sanity) on the Fallout 4 collector’s edition last year? You know the one: it came with a Pip-Boy replica, and became so sought after that it sold out and led to shops cancelling people’s pre-orders days before release. Well, Bethesda are releasing a new version of that Pip-Boy that’s basically loads better.  

The fun never stops during E3 week - for more PC gaming news hit up our homepage. 

ThinkGeek are the company behind the new version, which still works as a smartphone dock for your wrist, but now has the added benefit of having buttons that work. By using bluetooth to connect the phone and Pip-Boy together, the dials and switches now make your phone do things, such as answer calls.

It also has a holotape (see: USB stick) deck, which can be loaded with songs to be used as an alarm clock. That seems like a far more sensible option than wearing it as a steampunk Apple Watch alternative. 

The Deluxe Bluetooth Edition Pip-Boy will be available in November for US and Canadian customers, and will cost $350. For that money, hopefully the build quality is much better than the original version, which was plastic tat if we’re being perfectly honest. 

Thanks, VG247

Unfortunately many will bite on this, but for roughly the same amount of money you could commission someone to build you something far more akin to a real-world representation of a Pip-Boy.

If you really want one, I'd look into tradesman or talented people into crafts and think about investing your hard earned cash into something more reasonable for that kind of money.
