The Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition is still hard to find for $120 but it’s no longer impossible. New Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock has emerged and those in the hunt will want to keep an eye out for more as we push away from the game’s release date.
Earlier this year, shortly after it confirmed the game, Bethesda put Fallout 4 up for pre-order. The company offered two versions of the game. The standard edition and the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition, a collectors edition that comes with a real-life Pip Boy.
The Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition flew off shelves in the United States and retailers sold out ahead of the game’s release date on November 10th. Most retailers are still sold out though we’re finally starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
Those looking to buy the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition have had to deal with excessive price tags and resellers like eBay. Scalpers are still selling the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition for $180 or higher on sites like Amazon and eBay.
Prior to the Fallout 4 release date we had heard that some retailers might put the bundle back on sale due to cancellations and we’re finally starting to see some of that extra stock emerge now that we’re a week removed from the Pip Boy Edition release date.
New Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition Stock
New Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock has emerged on eBay thanks to Target.
Target has sold several PS4 and Xbox One Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition bundles for $119.99 on eBay and we could see more stock emerge in the future. We haven’t seen the PC Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition emerge just yet.
According to Now In Stock, the first time this happened was November 13th. The most recent appearance was yesterday.
This is the first time in awhile that we’ve seen the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition sell for anything less than $180 and it’s a great sign for those that have been holding out hope for additional $120 stock ahead of the holidays.
How to Find the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition Now
For the moment, this appears to be the only way to buy the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition (online, at least) for its standard retail price. And unsurprisingly, if you want to acquire it at this price, you’re going to be in a dog fight.
Target’s offerings on eBay have only been available for a few short minutes. One of its PS4 Fallout 4 Pip Boy Editions vanished after being on sale for three minutes. Any additional stock could sell out much faster.
So buyers will need to keep tabs. To do that, shoppers will want to keep their eyes glued to Target’s eBay page. Buyers will also want to monitor the individual pages for Target’s PS4 Pip Boy Edition and Xbox One Pip Boy Edition.
You can also use the Now In Stock online inventory tracker. You are able to setup alerts to notify you if and when the Pip Boy Edition comes back into stock.
It’s not clear if Target, or anyone else, will release more so this is the only way to make sure that you get one if it does go on sale again.
