Polish retailer X-Kom briefly sold PS4 thumbstick covers and Fallout 76 bundle for US $5
To say that Fallout 76 has had a rough time selling is an understatement. The game had one of the rockiest launches in recent memory, and sales lagged as a result. Several retailers have offered discounts the game here and there, but Polish e-retailer X-Kom took things to a new level recently by selling Fallout 76 with a package of PS4 thumbstick covers for the equivalent of US $5.
Listed briefly at POL 19 zł (~US $5), the package of 4 sets of PS4 thumbstick covers (red, blue, white, and black) was bundled with a copy of the PS4 version of Fallout 76. X-Kom previously listed this bundle at 268 zł (~US $70) but slashed the price over the weekend. Reddit user u/Zup84PL caught the deal (now expired) and grabbed a screenshot. Considering cheap accessories like controller thumbstick covers typically sell for $5-10, this deal was essentially giving Fallout 76 away for free.
Considering the problems that continue to plague Fallout 76 and its poor user and critical reception, retailers have had a hard time selling physical copies. The title sold a mere 1.4 million copies across PC, PS4, and Xbox One in its first month. For perspective, Fallout 4 sold about 5.5 million copies across those platforms in its first two weeks.
