On Friday morning, the British retailer GAME announced that it would open pre-orders for the £100 Pip-Boy bundle, which packages a copy of Fallout 4 along with real-life replica of the game's famous personal computer. In the UK, GAME has won rights to be the exclusive retailer of this deluxe edition.
However, the moment when it was scheduled to go live, GAME's Pip-Boy pre-order page could not be accessed due to high traffic affecting its servers.
The retailer explained on Twitter: "Due to increased number of dwellers trying to access Vault 111 we are experiencing some issues. Please bear with us."

At the time of going to press, the website's Pip-Boy pre-order page has remained inaccessible.
We are working hard to get Vault 111 back to full capacity as soon as possible. We will keep you updated.— GAME.co.uk (@GAMEdigital) July 3, 2015
Earlier in the week, one inventive Fallout 4 fan created his own custom Pip-Boy edition using a 3D printer and a hand-assembled circuit.
