Is the Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition Worth Buying?
I bought the $120 Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition. The bundle comes with the game and a real-life Pip Boy that you can strap around your wrist and use in conjunction with a smartphone and the Pip Boy app.
While I love the free Pip Boy application, I'm not a huge fan of the Pip Boy. I've owned it for three weeks and I've had it out three times. Once when I first got it, once when I showed it to a fellow Fallout geek, and once when I tried fixing the button I broke on November 10th.
Right now, it's sitting on a shelf in my bedroom and my guess is that it will probably stay there until Fallout 5 comes out in 2021.
It looks great but it's a glorified smartphone case that feels like it could break at any second. I only recommend spending the extra cash for it if you or a loved one is a hardcore Fallout fan or if you cosplay. If you're an average geek like myself, spend that $60+ somewhere else.
