Bethesda won’t be making any more Fallout 4 Pip Boy Editions but it will be giving away an extremely unique version of the Xbox One that fans of the series will love. Here, we take a look at the most important things you need to know about the special edition Fallout 4 Pipbox Xbox One.
Since June, we’ve seen a number of new and exciting Fallout 4 release details emerge. We’ve seen numerous Fallout 4 deals arrive ahead of the game’s November 10th release date. We’ve seen new Fallout 4 bundles and accessories emerge. And we’ve seen Bethesda fire up a contest giving Fallout enthusiasts a chance to win a number of free prizes, including the elusive Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition.
The company won’t be releasing any more Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition stock but it has a few more limited edition Fallout 4 items up its sleeve.
One of those items is a brand new ultra rare Fallout 4 Xbox One controller. The unique controller is tied into PAX Prime 2015 and Bethesda and Microsoft are going to be offering a couple of different ways to win the controller ahead of the game’s release in November. The contest for the controller lasts until August 31st.
Bethesda is also going to be giving away a rare version of the Xbox One. The company recently announced a special edition Xbox One called Fallout 4 Pipbox and it’s a must-have for fans of the Fallout saga. With a contest underway, we want to take a look at the five most important things buyers need to know about the Fallout 4 Pipbox.
Fallout 4 Pipbox
So what is the Fallout 4 Pipbox? The Fallout 4 Pipbox is a special edition Xbox One bundle that comes with a unique version of the console and a unique version of the Xbox One controller.

And while it’s going to appeal to Fallout 4 fans all over the world, Bethesda says that it will only be shipping its custom Xbox One to U.S. addresses. That probably won’t change and it’s not clear if the company will offer another contest to those that live outside of the United States.
It’s Super Rare
Bethesda will be giving away five Fallout 4 Pipbox Xbox Ones. It’s not clear if the company will release any more stock in the future though the contest rules note that while the approximate retail value of the console is $600, retailers can sell it for less. That doesn’t confirm future stock but it does leave the door open.
How to Win the Fallout 4 Pipbox
There are two ways to win a Fallout 4 Pipbox and neither of them require you to buy Fallout 4 or buy anything else from Bethesda. Entry is free.
If you are going to be attending PAX Prime, you’ll want to locate the Bethesda booth and pick up a card that features shows off three game logos for Fallout 4, DOOM and Dishonored 2. These are the three games Bethesda showed off at E3 2015 in Los Angeles.
Fill out the card and then pose for a picture at the Bethesda booth. Then, you’ll want to submit your card for entry into the contest.
If you aren’t attending PAX Prime, you’ll need to log in to your Twitter Account and follow the @Fallout and @Xbox Twitter accounts. Next, retweet the official Fallout tweet using the #VaultOneEleven hashtag to enter into the contest. That’s it.
Bethesda says that the the drawings for the five Fallout 4 Pipbox editions will be conducted shortly after the conclusion of the contest.
Contest Ends Soon
You only have a limited time to enter the contest. The contest started yesterday and it will end on August 31st at 6PM PST. This is when Bethesda’s booth at PAX Prime closes.
The contest for the rare Fallout 4 Xbox One controller also ends on August 31st so you’ll want to get your entries in for both before the end of the workday on Monday.
Things Not to Do
And finally, it’s worth noting that there some things not to do if you’re looking to win a Fallout 4 Pipbox. First, you can only enter once at PAX Prime. If you try to enter again at the show, you could be disqualified from the running.
If you’re looking to enter via Twitter, you can only enter using one Twitter account. If Bethesda discovers that you’re entering the contest through dummy accounts, you will be disqualified from the contest. The company also says that entries “submitted using any robot, script, macro or other automated service” will be disqualified as well.
Fallout 4 Xbox One Controller
We've seen a ton of Fallout 4 accessories emerge though this one should be especially exciting for Xbox One users.
Microsoft just announced a brand new ultra rare Fallout 4 Xbox One controller. The controller is tied into PAX Prime 2015 and the company is going to be offering a couple of different ways to win the controller ahead of the game's release in November.
If you plan to attend PAX Prime 2015, you'll want to snap a photo. Then you'll want to share that photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtags #xboxsweepstakes and #xbox.
If you can't make it to PAX, you'll need to retweet a specified tweet from Microsoft's Xbox Twitter account. One you do that, you'll enter into the contest for a chance to win the Fallout 4 controller. The contest will run from August 28th to August 31st.
