Fallout 4’s Pip-Boy accessory won’t fit phablet phones

If people make fun of your phone by picking up their iPads and computer monitors and talking into them, then your smartphone may not fit into the wearable Pip-Boy accessory Bethesda announced as part of Fallout 4‘s collector’s edition.

Despite the fact that companion apps for console and PC games are all but dead, Bethesda decided to make everyone’s dreams come true and create a Pip-Boy companion app for Android and iOS phones that will launch alongside the game this November. To sweeten the deal, collectors can pick up a special edition that includes the aforementioned wearable Pip-Boy, into which you can slide your smartphone. Nevermind explaining to your loved ones why you couldn’t answer the call that came in while you were playing Fallout 4 wearing your Pip-Boy and official Fallout 4 t-shirt.

To fully partake of the awesomeness that comes with wearing a piece of video game plastic on your arm, you’ll use one of the foam inserts that accompanies the toy, which include inserts fit for the iPhone 6, iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 4/4s, Samsung Galaxy 5 and Samsung Galaxy 4. There will also be a customizable insert you can use to fit other phones. However, larger smartphones will not fit into the device – this includes things like the iPhone 6 Plus, Galaxy Note 4 and Nexus 6.

Even if you have a gigantic, picture frame sized phone, the app is coming to all Android and iOS devices, so you could make your own Pip-Boy out of tin foil, duct tape, and Sculpey so that you’re ready when Fallout 4 launches, Pip Boy Edition or not, on November 10 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
