It's hard to top the lunchbox that was available for the special edition of Fallout 3 but here's what you can get if you shell out a few more bottlecaps for Fallout: New Vegas. And yes, you can pre-order this now.

Since it's Vegas, it comes with a set of seven poker chips that represent the major casinos found on the strip and in the Mojave Wasteland. Along those lines, a set of playing cards are packed in as well. For you readers out there, there's a hardcover graphic novel that tells some of what happened leading up to Fallout: New Vegas. A special edition wouldn't be complete without a Making of DVD as that's included as well.

I'm really excited about the next step for Fallout so E3's just around the corner and I'm betting that I'll be catching an up close look at Fallout: New Vegas come June.
