Sharing from SD -

Fallout 76: Wastelanders w/ Steelbook Case (Xbox One or PS4) on sale for $5.99.

Xbox One - https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6255281

PS4 - https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6255265

Note, a free steelbook case will automatically be added to your Best Buy cart after you add the game.

Alternatively, Amazon has Fallout 76: Wastelanders (Xbox One) on sale for $5.99 - https://www.amazon.c...=8-3&th=1&psc=1

For all the criticism, this is a solid game with the Wastelanders update and I would recommend grabbing a copy for this price. It will most likely run on next gen systems as well.

Is there a difference between the one sold at Best Buy and Amazon, or just two different places to buy the same thing for the same price?

Amazon doesn’t include the steelbook, both include 500 atoms (currency for online store ... items, skins, etc).

I really have to wonder just how many of those steelbooks they ordered. . .

Thanks, OP, missed the used $3.99 & $4.99 deals at Gamestop. new w/steelbook for $5.99 is the best deal yet!

man, I haven't been to Best Buy since pre-covid...

I saw reviews on Amazon that said xbox gold is required to play this. Anyone clarify? What about ps4 version, is PS plus needed?

You need the online for PS and Xbox. This is an online only MMORPG. It’s....not good. I’m pretty much buying the steelbook and getting a free game.

Ordered a copy for Xbox One that will be shipped to the nearby store for pickup. $6 for a steelbook and a replacement case isn't so bad.

It did the same thing to me. If something is even close to near, get them for store pick up. The. After the order has gone through, switch it to shipping. Worst case is it doesn’t work and you just don’t pick up. I was able to switch mine to shipping that way. It hasn’t shipped yet though so we’ll see.

This includes 500 atoms, so even if it’s on Game Pass, that’s a $5 value + the steelbook.

The problem is BB doesn't provide stores with any signage that says the steelbooks are free with the corresponding games so they just sit there until the price drops or an online order that automatically added it comes through.

Is the steelbook supposed to arrive not new and nothing inside?

 

Seems odd to me, especially from BB.

Can't remember but this may be a case where they didn't shrinkwrap it. If the peel UPC sticker is on the case, then yeah that's exactly right.

Thank you.

Okay. Time to return the empty case. $6 for an empty case is just stupid!

I grabbed this and the game ships separately from the empty steelbook, so you should receive 2 packages. The steelbook is open, without wrapping.

I must have missed something, but why was etcrane banned?

Not sure exactly why but last I saw he was trying really hard to push the false rumor that the Series X has overheating issues.

I'd assume it was due to them being abrasive and obnoxious repeatedly.  And possibly an alt of Zantra who was banned recently.
