Polish e-retailer X-Kom ran a promotion this past weekend that offered a free copy of Fallout 76 with four sets of PlayStation 4 thumbstick covers, all for POL 19 zl (~US $5). This discount is not out of the norm for retailers selling Fallout 76, a title that has had trouble selling copies and satisfying gamers.

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.
