Fallout 4 Collector’s Edition (also called “Pip-Boy edition”) is a special edition of the game for true fans. It’s the first Fallout edition with a physical copy of real Pip-Boy included!
Of course one of the most important features of Fallout 4 Collector’s Edition is Pip-Boy! As you can see, it is like a bracelet that you can wear on your arm. Just like your character wears it in the game.
It’s made of plastic but there is no screen there. You have to use your smartphone instead. You put the smartphone in a special slot and it works like screen. Detailed instructions about how to make it work can be found in Pip-Boy Pocket Guide that comes with the edition.
You can insert most of modern smartphones into the Pip-Boy: iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 4/4S, Samsung Galaxy 5, Samsung Galaxy 4, and other smartphones of a similar size. Unfortunately larger phones (like iPhone 6+ ) can’t be used inside the bracelet but you still can download special app and use it.
There is a special iOS and Android application that imitates the interface of in-game Pip-Boy. This application can connect your PC, Xbox or PS with the phone. Such connection allows player to use the physical Pip-Boy instead of in-game Pip-Boy! All functions of in-game interface are available in the Application. That’s amazing! Such opportunity makes the game much more interesting and entertaining.
Imagine: you are sitting and playing Fallout 4. You decide to browse your inventory but you don’t open inventory in the game. You use the physical Pip-Boy that you wear on your hand. You change your gear and all changes you make appear in the game.
Of course the number of Collector’s Editions will be limited. There is no information about how many copies will be available. But anyway, if you are true Fallout fan you must purchase one! To be honest, I can’t remember any other game that offers such an interesting feature.
If you don’t want to purchase Collector’s Edition but still want to use your smartphone as Pip-Boy you can download special Application and use it. The only difference is that you will not have plastic cover but all functions of the App will be the same for all players without exceptions.
The price of Standard Edition is about $60 while Pip-Boy Edition will cost $130
