Fallout fan sends Bethesda over 2000 actual bottle caps in the hope of securing a copy of Fallout 4
Haha, just give the man a copy of the game...
Lol, that's awesome and I'm sure they will. How could you refuse that as Bethesda?
Because then EVERYONE else on the internet will do the same to try and get a free copy and suddenly they'll have thousand of bottle caps!
If I was a Bethesda, id tell him to get a job and stop finding ways to get it free lmao
I bet the shipping cost the same amount as the pre-order!
Guess you've never played Fallout 3 then, caps don't actually weigh anything, I should know as by the end I had about 8,000 of them.
guess you never shipped anything out of state...weight is almost irrelevant when boxes get big
Lol that's awesome, would have loved to see the face of the person that opened this package.
Lol i want to see there response.
Cool , I was between jobs , so i used pennies and nickels to pay for my pre-order of Wolfenstein New Order .
That would have been a hefty bag since thats 2000 to 6000 coins. Wouldnt want to be there for the counting process. Edit: actually I guess new order isn't a full priced game so the scenario isn't overly obscene at all lol.
New Order was a fully priced game. Old Blood was the budget title.
Haha. He needs to get the Pit-Boy edition for all those Nuka-cola caps :)
...and an Alsatian
Bethesda whats your answer
I tried this in game. They didn't understand the reference. I've got 1000 bottle caps. Put them in two big jars and using them as a doorstop!
That duder deserves a copy of the game for sure, pretty great story and I am sure Bethesda can get a lot of attention on social media (not that they will need it) if they play this properly. Good fun story, kudos to that guy :)
Hats off to that guy. I'm sure Bethesda will give him a free copy of Fallout (hell, they should send him a Collectors pack), simply because that's so goddam funny and original.
hopes his “post gets popular enough their PR department will be too nervous to turn me down.” You probably shouldn't admit that this is a ploy to get a free copy of the game, buddy.
I hope he gets it, one of the most creative ways to purchase a game. I have a feeling his signed copy of Fallout 4 will be making it's way to his house on launch :)
I'm a little confused while highly entertained, good story hope he gets it but pleading poverty while sending away 2000 caps by recorded mail could he just of pre ordered his game with that cash?
