Nearly a month after Fallout 4′s release, the limited Pip-Boy Edition is back in stock at normal retail prices, giving gamers one last shot at the collectible.
The many gamers who missed out on buying a Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 may be in luck, if they act quickly. For a limited time, the limited Pip-Boy Edition is back in stock.
Amazon has released new stock of the Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 on its website, selling at the normal retail price. It remains unclear how many units Amazon has available to sell, though it’s probably a fairly limited amount. Bethesda previously announced that they can’t manufacture more Pip-Boys, so chances are this is the remaining stock that Amazon was allotted from Bethesda. Gamers who are interested in getting a Pip-Boy of their own should act fast, as all prior sales have sold out almost instantaneously.
Bethesda announced that there would be a limited Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 way back at E3, and since then, finding one at normal retail prices has been nearly impossible. Pre-orders rapidly sold out, and while select websites have received new stock since, it hasn’t lasted very long. However, since Fallout 4 has already been out for a month, this supply may last a little longer since many gamers already own Fallout 4. On the other hand, with the holidays rapidly approaching, these units may be quickly scooped up by gift-givers and resellers hoping to make a buck.
Amazon’s sale of the Pip-Boy at normal prices also shows how badly a mark-up resellers have placed on the collectible. Resellers on Amazon are selling the same product from 200 to nearly 700 dollars, and gamers have found similar price gouging on eBay. The Pip-Boy isn’t the only Fallout 4 memorabilia to experience the massive mark-ups, as Fallout 4‘s Nuka Cola Quantum has also been selling for exorbitant prices on reseller sites. Unfortunately, Nuka Cola Quantum has received an extremely limited release, and it remains to be seen if Jones Soda Company will actually produce more.
Gamers who missed out on the chance to buy a Pip-Boy previously now have a shot of getting one at a decent price. This may be one of the last opportunities to purchase a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy at normal retail prices, though for any gamers who miss out, there’s always the unofficial 3D-printed Pip-Boy.
