We hear from official press wire that Bethesda Softworks and shopping central mogul Amazon have agreed to push out a special limited edition of Fallout 3 (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC), and alongside the Collector’s Edition SKU will come the pricier and heavier Fallout 3 Survival Edition.

The new bundle is supposedly coming with a real-life imitation of the PIP-BOY 3000 wrist gizmo Vault folk wear in-game, in addition to the giveaways in the Collector’s Edition:

  • The Fallout 3 game;
  • Customized, metal Vault-Tec lunch box;
  • 5” Vault Boy Bobblehead;
  • ‘The Art of Fallout 3Â’ hardcover book; and
  • ‘The Making of Fallout 3Â’ DVD

The wrist gadget is said to be life-size and was custom-crafted to serve as a fully functional digital wristwatch. It’s this new toy that hiked the Fallout 3 Survival Edition‘s price to US$ 130 (US$ 129.99 for console, US$ 119.99 for PC), which will wring 50 dollars more from you than the Collector’s Edition would (US$ 79.99 for consoles, US$ 69.99 for PC). The Survival Edition is to be exclusively sold on Amazon.

Fallout 3 is the Bethesda’s attempt to revive the Interplay franchise into the legacy it was more than a decade ago, and it seems that they’re definitely being ambitious in that department with this new retail stunt.

We’re pretty sure the PIP-BOY 300 will see approval with many hardcore fans’ tastes, but what about the game? We’ll have to wait to find out.
