Just before the release of Fallout 4 on Nov. 10, eBay listings for the Pip-Boy Edition have sprung up, with the highest asking price amounting to a whopping $2,000 for an Amazon preorder.
Aside from the tall order of $2,000, there are plenty of auction listings, which start off at $0.99. With the much anticipated title originally priced at $120, sellers who put their item up for bidding have a risk of not meeting that figure. However, as of right now, a quick search of the title on eBay will yield over 700 copies up for grabs with their prices picking up.

As one of the most awaited titles this year, the demand for Fallout 4 is steadily rising. Bethesda Softworks has been working closely with its partners to meet the demand. The buyers aren't just genuine fans of the game, as people who wanted to earn some money out of the preorders took advantage of the case where the supply was thought to be short, which is why there are so many listings on eBay right now.
The Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition includes a Pip-Boy replica, stand and capsule case along with a physical copy of the Pip-Boy pocket guide. It'll also come with a physical Vault-Tec Perk poster as well as a power armor collectible metal packaging.
"[T]he Pip-Boy is the ultimate accessory for the official Pip-Boy companion mobile app that allows players to manage their in-game inventory, perks, holotapes, and more," Bethesda Softworks says on the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition product page.
Fallout 4 will be available on Nov. 10 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, which is the same date as Rise of the Tomb Raider's launch. Also, screenshots of the game have been making rounds on the Internet recently, so it might be a good chance to take a better look at the game.
