Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Survival - Amazon.com Exclusive

Amazon.com

An Amazon.com Exclusive, the Fallout 3: Survival Edition, is the ultimate Fallout 3 package that includes a life-size replica of the Pip-Boy 3000, the wrist-mounted device worn by characters in-game. The Pip-Boy 3000 has been painstakingly recreated and modified for real world display as a digital clock. In addition to the Pip-Boy 3000, the Survival Edition will include all of the items from the Fallout 3 Collector’s Edition including the Fallout 3 game, a customized, metal Vault-Tec lunch box, 5" Vault Boy Bobblehead, The Art of Fallout 3 hardcover book, and The Making of Fallout 3 DVD.

According to Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks, "The Survival Edition offers gamers the unique opportunity to own a piece of video game history along with a collection of limited edition items – it’s the definitive Fallout 3 package."

From the creators of award-winning Oblivion, Fallout 3 features one of the most realized game worlds ever made. Create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland. Prepare for the future. The third game in the Fallout series, Fallout 3 is a singleplayer action role-playing game (RPG) set in a post-apocalyptic Washington DC. Combining the horrific insanity of the Cold War era theory of mutually assured destruction gone terribly wrong, with the kitschy naivety of American 1950s nuclear propaganda, Fallout 3 will satisfy both players familiar with the popular first two games in its series as well as those coming to the franchise for the first time.

The Story: Vault 101 – Jewel of the Wastes
For 200 years, Vault 101 , a fallout shelter, has faithfully served the surviving residents of Washington DC and its environs, now known as the Capital Wasteland. Though the global atomic war of 2077 left the US all but destroyed, the residents of Vault 101 enjoy a life free from the constant stress of the outside world. Giant Insects, Raiders, Slavers, and yes, even Super Mutants are all no match for superior Vault-Tec engineering. Yet one fateful morning, you awake to find that your father has defied the Overseer and left the comfort and security afforded by Vault 101 for reasons unknown. Leaving the only home you've ever known, you emerge from the Vault into the harsh Wasteland sun to search for your father, and the truth.

Key Features:

  • Limitless Freedom – Take in the sights and sounds of the vast Capital Wasteland. See the great monuments of the United States lying in post-apocalyptic ruin. You make the choices that define you and change the world. Just keep an eye on your Rad Meter.

  • Blast 'Em Away With V.A.T.S. –Even the odds in combat with the Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System for your Pip-Boy Model 3000. V.A.T.S. allows you to pause time in combat, target specific body parts on your target, queue up attacks, and let Vault-Tec take out your aggression for you. Rain death and destruction in an all-new cinematic presentation featuring gory dismemberments and spectacular explosions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy the game --not the over-priced, gimicky swag. November 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Survival - Amazon.com Exclusive
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is great -- game of the year material, no doubt. My only advice is to steer clear of the Pipboy 3000. It is very cheaply made. Another reviewer accurately calls it, "dollar store" quality.

One thing that has not been mentioned yet is the battery life issue. The clock will run for about a week before the display starts to dim and the batteries need to be replaced. I have changed my batteries twice since buying this clock for my game room(using brand new Duracels). I am ebaying the clock to try and recover some of my loss from buying this bundle.

Also, this battery life problem is not an isolated issue. It is happening on all Pip-boys. Fans are posting rants on message boards all over the internet. It took some time for the problem to surface because most people assumed the issue was with the generic batteries that were included with the clock. I can confirm that the problem is with the clock, not with the batteries.

Buy the collector's edition or standard edition -- just don't waste your money on this cheap "collector's item".

1.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the game. 1 star for the bundle. November 12, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Survival - Amazon.com Exclusive
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Fallout 3, the game, is very enjoyable & has taken up a fair amount of my time lately. However, Fallout 3, the merch, is far short of expectations.

The Exclusive Survival Edition is not worth the premium over the other versions.

1) The Pip-Boy 3000 looks & feels cheaply made. The clock doesn't have the amount of detail originally presented. It is made from creaky injection molded plastic & visually has the appeal of a dollar store item, not a $129.99 item.

Mine was also DOA on arrival, totally failing to power on after installing the *three* AAA batteries it required.

2) The bobble-head is "cute" but was not attached to the base, therefore it won't stand up.

Both of these are apparently due to poor quality control. The box was in pristine condition when it arrived, so the "damage" does not appear to be due to shipping.

1.0 out of 5 stars 5/5 for Game, 1/5 for Survival Edition November 19, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Survival - Amazon.com Exclusive
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Great game, however the bundle arrived late from Amazon, despite release day shipping. Pip-boy clock is garbage, arrived with a broken button, clock completely depletes 3xAA batteries in one week. For the $50 premium, one could reasonably expect a clock that works, instead bethesda support reccomends following warranty information - Just $20.00 to fix your clock that never worked in the first place! Bethesda forums are filled with people dissatisfied with this bundle.

Again, this review is for this specific bundle, the game itself is great, and even the Collectors Edition is nice, but the premium "Survival" edition, intended as a treat for fans of the franchise, is a piece of junk.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fistfull of Caps January 12, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Survival - Amazon.com Exclusive
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, this is the best game ever. I'm a big fan of the whole Fallout series and this one is the best so far. I just wish I could play it with a friend. Hopefully they'll add that in some future download. If you liked Bio Shock, then you'll probably like Fallout 3 (unless you love first person shooters and hate role playing games).

Second, this package is expensive. The Pip-Boy 3000 "clock" is pretty cheap, as in dollar store cheap. If it were a squirt gun, it wouldn't be your average Super-Soaker, it'd be a cheap, no-name, drug-store, made-for-toddlers, leaks-like-a-sieve, bargain-bin, piece-of-crap. It drained the batteries in a few days (I'm not sure how old the batteries were, but I had expected them to last longer). It doesn't even have an alarm, let alone a radio, and honestly, for the price, it should have those things just like all the other $20 clocks do. At least some sound effects, for Atom's sake! I'm much more satisfied with my Halo 3 Legendary Edition helmet (which I can't wear and it doesn't light up, but at least it's got a unique number). Still, I kinda like it... the Pip-Boy... call it childish inspiration, like a Lego kit.

Also, the bobble-head isn't nearly as good as the one I have of Kane from Command & Conquer: Kane's Revenge. It's almost as cheap as the clock, but more like a trade-show-freebie or a gift-store-goodie. BUT, the lunch box, art book, and DVD mini-documentary are pretty good. Sure, I "remember" my lunch box being pretty big and heavy in grade school, and this one seems small and fragile by comparison, but I'm a lot bigger now, and besides, there's enough room in it for a sandwich and some jet (just not enough for a Nuka-Cola).

Only hard-core fans of the series and collectors should find this worth their hard earned dollars... Some may find the extras just take up space.

1.0 out of 5 stars Game is great, Pip-Boy clock is garbage November 13, 2008

The game is great, buy it now!

The Amazon exclusive pip-boy clock is a hunk of junk. Mine worked for 5 days and then the clock started fading until after one week of opening the package it was 100% broken. I was left with a cheap plastic replica and a broken clock that I paid an extra $50 for. I shipped the whole thing back for a refund and bought the game from a local store.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy Clock Not Worth Price December 2, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Survival - Amazon.com Exclusive
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is fantastic. The lunchbox and bobblehead are neat. Those points have been made very well in other reviews of them. This review focuses on the one item exclusive to the Survival Edition, the PipBoy Clock. The clock is a poor product, plain and simple, and not worth $10 extra, much less the $50 over the Collector's Edition price.

Performance is terrible. The clock doesn't work unless you use some redneck engineering on it with aluminum foil inserts placed between the positive battery point and the positive contact plate. Once you get the batteries in and actually get power to the display, setting the time can itself is cumbersome. The three buttons provided are often times unresponsive, requiring a good deal of wiggling at times to get the display to change as desired. The display, even with fresh batteries, is very dim, very hard to interpret unless the room it's in is very dark.

In terms of power consumption, it devours batteries, consuming three AA batteries every two weeks, sometimes sooner. In comparison, the old one-way pager I carry for my job, which has an alarm, storage for phone numbers and time received, and makes some rudimentary sounds if desired, uses one AAA battery every MONTH or so. This clock doesn't even have an alarm, and uses much more power for it.

Aesthetically, the clock is a mixed bag. The overall design and look match the Fallout universe exactly. My example, however, arrived unpainted, looking nothing like I expected it to look. I know the technology and "look and feel" of the game series is "used retro science fiction", but this clock is as drab as drab gets, with no logos or anything to maintain that sense of having something form the Fallout world, even if it's a fake.
