This fan had spent 7 years of his life saving bottle caps which are used as currency in the Fallout universe. When Bethesda announced that Fallout 4 was being made the fan sent the company 7 years worth of bottle caps hoping to use them as a way to pre-order the game. We'll have to wait and see how that works out for him.

For one dedicated fan, $60 is not enough to pay for a copy of Fallout 4.

Imgur user GatorMacheteJr (real name Seth) has been saving his bottle caps since the release of Fallout 3 in 2008. Now he has approximately 2,000 of the Fallout universes currency and he wants to make a trade.

He wrote a letter to Bethesda, the developer behind the game outlining his proposal to trade the “caps” for a game.

He mailed the letter along with the 11 pounds of caps. He doesn’t detail if he wants the special edition of the game, which comes with the wrist mounted cell phone holster reminiscent of the “pip-boy” used in the game. However reddit has worked out that the exchange rate of caps for dollars is somewhere between 40 and 50 cents per cap, so he is mailing them approximately $800 in fictional currency in addition to the cost of mailing an 11lb box to Maryland.

So far the response from Bethesda has been thus…

That does not look like 2000+ bottle caps. And since he never counted them we wont know. But either way, thats a small amount to save over 7.5 years.

I like the idea though, though the letter is a bit lame...

kudos to his ingenuity, I would send him a copy and use it to promo the product. Another twist would be to actually market a drink or product in the game as well as in market, and take wrappers/ tops, whatever or other proof of purchase towards merch' purchase power.
