While some are still feeling the 'fallout' of Starfield's failure to set the stars alight, there's no escaping the fact that Bethesda is still one of the seminal developers out there. Up there with Rockstar Games having the keys to GTA and Red Dead, Bethesda's legacy of Fallout and The Elder Scrolls is more than enough to carry it. 

We know The Elder Scrolls is next on the docket, with pre-production finally starting on The Elder Scrolls 6. Things are less rosy for Fallout, and after Fallout 76 was a Vault-Tec experiment that largely faltered, we've been warned that Fallout 5 is still many years away. Thankfully, the apocalyptic adventure is alive in other forms.

Custom Fallout Xbox is a thing of beauty

Unless you've been locked in your own nightmarish vault, you'll know Amazon's live-action Fallout series is on the way. All eight episodes will be released on April 11, and with Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's series being affectionately dubbed Fallout 5, there's no better time to revisit the franchise's past.

Of course, you'll need something to play on. With Bethesda now sitting under the umbrella of Microsoft, the Green Team has released a custom Fallout Xbox so you can visit the Wasteland in style. As Amazon's Fallout series will be set in Vault 33, Microsoft is honouring it with its very own Vault 33 Xbox Series X.

Alongside the Fallout-inspired console and controller (which you can actually buy separately), there's a beefy Vault that you can lock them inside. There's only one of these available, and with it being worth a whopping approximation of $5,014.98 USD, it's a collector's dream. 

Can you buy the custom Fallout Xbox?

As is the rule with so many of these custom Xboxes, they're typically a marketing tool that you can't buy. One lucky Vault Dweller can get their hands on the Fallout Xbox, so if you want to enter, you're encouraged to follow the Xbox Twitter account and retweet the competition. 

Unfortunately, you have to be over 18, and the sweepstake is only open to US residents - leaving many of us to the harsh conditions of the Wasteland. If you are entering, you've only got until April 14 to do it. Unlike the Final Fantasy 14 custom Xbox bundle, you can actually play this one, so at least that's a win.
