Not even 'a shitload' of Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Editions is enough for the world

The special Pip-Boy Edition of Fallout 4 - which combines with your smartphone to forms a functional representation of the series' famous post-apocalyptic wrist computer - is undoubtedly going to be worth its weight in bottlecaps when the game launches on November 10. Partly because it's awesome, yes, but also because Bethesda simply can't make anymore. They've been ordered and manufactured to capacity.

"We reached a point where we'd go back to the factories and they were like, 'Guys, this is it, sorry. This is as long as we can run the lines and as many of them as we can make,'" Bethesda VP Pete Hines told GameSpot at QuakeCon over the weekend. "We made a shitload of Pip-Boys, and we went back and made more, and went back and made more. I keep seeing stuff about, 'Oh, you only did a few thousand." No--we did a ton of these things. I think we did more of these things than we did for any collector's edition we've ever done, ever."

So hold onto your fancy toys, vault dwellers who successfully pre-ordered the $120 special edition. You've got something special on your arms.
