Bethesda Softworks revealed the contents of the Fallout: New Vegas collector's edition and they are amazing. That's it in the photo above. As you can see, the contents of the box include Vegas-centric props, a graphic novel, an "extras" DVD and so much more.
I have a single word for this: Want.
Here's the full, spade-pointed list of what comes in the New Vegas collector's edition:
♠ Fallout: New Vegas game disc
♠ “Lucky 7” poker chips. Each of the seven poker chips was 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 illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game. Bethesda says: "Use the cards to play poker, blackjack or Caravan, an original card game that was created by Obsidian especially for New Vegas!" but you could play literally any card game with these bad boys, even Go Fish.
♠ A recreation of the game’s "highly coveted" “Lucky 38” platinum chip.
♠ Hardcover graphic novel “All Roads”. It 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 contains 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."
Retailers will be taking your pre-orders shortly. No word on the price quite yet, but ask yourself: Can you afford not to own freakin' Fallout-themed playing cards and poker chips? Instant hit of the poker table.
