Whilst the Pip-Boy collector's edition of Fallout 4 seemed like a big gimmick for a lot of gamers, it clearly is no joke to any Fallout fans out there. In fact, there will be no more Pip-Boy editions available for sale because they've all sold out.
Some rumors have circulated that Bethesda has purposely artificially limited the stock of the Fallout 4 collector's edition but Bethesda has opened up about the Pip-Boy and the truth is actually completely the opposite from this.
Despite Bethesda trying to increase production of the Pip-Boy as much as possible, the Fallout 4 Collector's Edition still sold out and Bethesda can no longer get hold of any more. In an interview with Gamespot, Bethesda's Pete Hines explained that, "We reached a point where we'd go back to the factories and they were like, 'guys, this is it, sorry.'"
When talking about keeping in touch with the factories responsible for production of the Pip-Boy, Hines mentioned, "We'd go back and say 'Demand for this is insane, we've got to make more.'"
Unfortunately the factories just couldn't keep up with production. Pete Hines stated that the factories eventually said, "'Sorry, this is as many as we can make.' And we sold every single one of those that we could."
So, there we have it. Despite Bethesda's best attempts, the Collector's Edition of Fallout 4 has managed to sell immensely quickly and your only chance at picking up a Pip-Boy is to wait for the game release and pick up a copy from eBay, where you'll most likely be met with prices that far exceed the actual original price of the Collector's Edition, which was set at $119.99.
