At E3, Bethesda announced that a special real-life Fallout 4 Pipboy would be included in the Collector’s Edition for the game. Utilizing your own phone and an app provided by Bethesda, it’ll work like a real Pipboy, making this a must have for diehard Fallout fans. However, Bethesda has revealed that the Pipboy will only work for the iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 4/4S, Samsung Galaxy 5, and Samsung Galaxy 4. Also, it will work with most likely other similarly sized models. It will not be able to fit larger phone models when it’s foam casing. This includes phones such as the Iphone 6+.
Bethesda noted this on their blog: “As we wanted to stay faithful to the dimensions of the in-game model, any smartphones larger than the models listed will not fit inside the wearable device” the post states. “For these larger devices, our Pip-Boy companion app will still be available.”
So yeah, it’s definitely a bummer for those who have those larger phone models, but at least you know whether you’ll be able to use it before buying it, thus you can gauge whether you really want the Pipboy or not.
Fallout 4 comes out November 10th, 2015. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
