[bitTech] Amazon to offer exclusive Fallout 3 SKU

Online retailer Amazon has signed a deal with Bethesda to exclusively sell a collectors edition package for Fallout 3, titled Fallout 3: Survival Edition.

The package, which will be sold only through Amazon, will include the game, Making of Fallout 3 DVD, hardcover artbook and a specially made lunchbox and wrist-mouted alarm clock similar to the Pip-boy used in the game. Oh, and a Pip-boy statuette too.

We contacted Pete Hines to confirm the availability of this package in the UK and were told that unfortunately this package is available only in the US at this time.

"This is an exciting day for Amazon customers and Fallout fans," said Greg Hart vice president of video games and software at Amazon.

"We're delighted to be the exclusive destination for Fallout 3 Survival Edition; this is a great example of the continually expanding selection we offer to gamers."

"We're thrilled to be working with Amazon.com on this exclusive edition," said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks.

"The Survival Edition offers gamers the unique opportunity to own a piece of videogame history along with a collection of limited edition items – it's the definitive Fallout 3 package."

Collectors Editions these days aren't that collectible...They are mass produced, nearly as much as the regular editions...

Doesn't look too bad.

If it's even close to as cool as my Big Daddy figurine, I'll get it!

Exactly. I'm pretty sure I could drive over to Micro Center this afternoon and pick up a Halo 3 Legendary Edition. Just some marketing smoke and mirrors with the whole 'limited' thing.

On a sort-of side note: Anyone remember the gold Zelda and Zelda: Ocarina of Time carts? Now THAT was a sweet limited edition that became hard to get ahold of (relatively speaking).
