Pip-Boy Replica Can’t House iPhone 6+ And Larger Phones

Fans went crazy when Fallout 4 was announced during this year’s E3, even more so that there will be a Pip-Boy Edition that comes with a wearable Pip-Boy that you can put your smart phone in and use with the companion app.

After the announcement, the Pip-Boy Edition was sold out on all fronts (GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon and EB Games), which means plenty of gamers are expecting to wear and use their Pip-Boy when the game comes out. However, a recent post from Bethesda indicates that some Vault Dwellers might not be able to use the Pip-Boy.

On their official blog, Bethesda has posted some clarified the smart phone compatibility for using the Pip-Boy. The Pip-Boy casing will come with a foam insert that will help fit the iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 4/4s, Samsung Galaxy 5, and Samsung Galaxy 4. It will also come with a customisable foam insert that will help house most other popular smartphone devices of similar size/build.

Bethesda explained the reasoning behind such dimension in their blog, stating, “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. For these larger devices, our Pip-Boy companion app will still be available.”

Those that use iPhone 6+ and of similar size or bigger will not be able to use the Pip-Boy casing, but at least you can still use the companion app for it.

Fallout 4 is set to release on November 10th 2015 and will come on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Pip-Boy Edition was available for $120 but is sold out at the moment. Bethesda is working on getting more Pip-Boy Editions available in the coming weeks but make sure you have a compatible smart phone before you pre-order though!
