    Bethesda has released the details of the Fallout: New Vegas collector's edition. Here's the info:

    The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the CE will all include the following:

    ♠ Seven “Lucky 7” poker chips, each designed to represent chips from the major casinos found on the New Vegas strip and throughout the Mojave Wasteland.

    ♠ A fully customized Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards. Each card in the pack has been uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for New Vegas.

    ♠ A recreation of the game’s highly coveted “Lucky 38” platinum chip.

    ♠ A hardcover graphic novel “All Roads” that tells the story of some of the characters and events that lead up to Fallout: New Vegas. “All Roads” was written by Chris Avellone, the game’s creative director, and created in conjunction with Dark Horse Comics.

    ♠ ‘The Making of Fallout: New Vegas’ DVD. This documentary DVD will contain exclusive video content, including interviews with the developers in which they take you from concept to creation and discuss topics such as story, setting, legacy of the Fallout franchise and more.

    North Americans can pre-order at any participating retailer — like GameStop — starting today. European pre-orders will be available throughout Europe in the weeks to come.

    ^ Ditto.


    I mean yes, the information contained in the original poster's posting was relevant to my interests.

    Makes Civ V DE's bundle look like a pile of crap (which I'll probably get anyway).

    Damn it! Why, oh why do these guys punish those living in Europe!

    This is a must have...can't wait to play poker with those cards while listening to Sinatra! (That would really set the mood!)

    Gamestop is offering free overnight shipping (US Only) to the first 3000 pre-orders.
    Amazon will most likely have free shipping too as the item will be over $25

    Tomorrow is release! Who's picking it up? I sure will be, hopefully it isn't as buggy as the first. Despite the bugs, I love this series of games, I could get lost in the Fallout universe for many hours on end.

    I have the collector's edition arriving at my door tomorrow. I need to get all my homework done for the week in one day so I can game nonstop.

    As the dev's put it for the original Fallout 3, "We want people to miss work, skip school to play this game..."

    I don't plan to miss school, but my grades will surely suffer. I bet I beat the campaign in one sitting, and continue exploring the world for the next year or so. I love the Fallout series. I have no idea how I am going to sleep tonight. Anticipating it so much!

    Can a mod change this to the "Official Fallout New Vegas Thread"?

    I plan to post screenshots for everyone to see tomorrow.

    PS: I have my rations ready. I don't want to leave the room for anything. Got my rice cooker, my rice, my ramen, my beans, good to go for the next few days of New Vegas. I have alot more food under the desk too. Cases of MRE's. Cases.

    The game is set in a different place. In fact it is a few years after the original. The Capital Wasteland and Vegas have almost no contact. The two games will have different story lines. Should be enjoyable. :)

    EDIT: Some of this is mentioned in the interviews with the developers which I have watched. You can watch those, or you can just wait till tomorrow. I plan to give everyone a good summary of gameplay, story, graphics (on my laptop lawl) etc. I will try not to spoil anything.
