GAME cock-up everyone's Fall Out 4: Pip Boy orders

6 November 2015

People who aren't into video games won't understand the feverish excitement that comes with the release of a new game. Of course, not all games get the hype, but one that has had gamers salivating is Fall Out 4 Pip Boy.

And the reason people are excited, is because this special edition comes with a wearable Pip-Boy. That looks like this.

You can wear it, and team it up with the special smartphone app and it is all very exciting and fancy.

GAME got the exclusivity rights for this much sought after thing, which is all well and good until you look at GAME's Twitter feed today. Seems they've ballsed up EVERYONE'S orders.

Not only with their social media managers be crying into their laps today, but the customer service phonelines will be jammed with angry gamers (and cross gamers at your peril).

Then, of course, there's mystifying advice from GAME where they ask gamers to put another order in, like that doesn't completely negate the reason for pre-ordering in the first place.
