Jubliant – that’s how happy.

The Fallout: New Vegas Collector’s Edition includes seven “Lucky 7” poker chips, a recreation of the game’s highly coveted “Lucky 38” platinum chip and (hold onto you breeches poker fans): a fully customised Fallout: New Vegas deck of cards “uniquely illustrated to depict characters and factions found within the game.” Obsidian has even created a card game called “Caravan” that’s playable within New Vegas!

Oh yeah – you’ll also get prequel novel called “All Roads” written by designer Chris Avellone, the making of Fallout: New Vegas DVD and some kind of first-person RPG game for the 360, set in a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas. We forget what it’s called…
