It uses your smartphone
Today at Bethesda’s E3 conference in LA, the “Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition” was released. It will ship with both the game and a special edition package, which includes a real Pip-Boy accessory. To spice things up even more, the unit will hold your phone, which you can insert to run a special app that mirrors the actual Pip-Boy.
The Pip-Boy app will be released when Fallout 4 is out later this year. It will debut on both Android and iOS.
[Update: The Pip-Boy Edition is now available on Amazon for pre-order. This bad boy runs a cool $120. But, there’s a Pip-Boy, so prioritize your life decisions accordingly.]
