Amazon gets exclusive Fallout 3 bundle

Amazon customers in the States will be able to get their hands on an exclusive Fallout 3 bundle, thanks to a deal with the game's publisher, Bethesda.

Fallout 3 Survival Edition will include everything that the special edition does - a hardcover art book, Making of Fallout 3 DVD, a bobblehead and a shiny lunch box to hold it all in - but will also include a life-size replica of the Pip-Boy 3000 wrist device worn by the main character in the game.

"This is an exciting day for Amazon customers and Fallout fans," said Greg Hart vice president of video games and software at Amazon.

"We're delighted to be the exclusive destination for Fallout 3 Survival Edition; this is a great example of the continually expanding selection we offer to gamers."

If you like the sound of this, then you'd better pre-order quickly. If anything is to be taken from a new diary post from Bethesda product manager Pete Hinesm the Survival Edition is being released in extremely low quantities.

"We wanted to do it in a way that they were really exclusive for folks that got them," he writes. "So once they're gone...and they'll go quickly...they are gone for good."

The game is due for release this Autumn on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
