Fallout New Vegas promises to be a big game, and if it's anything like Fallout 3 it'll be a big game. I don't regret getting the hardback guide for Fallout 3 and this is the cheapest I've seen this listed. Expected publication is 22nd October, just in time for the game's release.

From the description:

Every collectible catalogued and located so you won t miss any.
Huge pull out poster map of the huge New Vegas landscape with points of interest, main sights, and major landmarks labelled.

you buy a game then you buy a book to tell you how to play the game you jus paid money for you fail at life

No, I buy a book so I don't need to spend precious gaming hours working out modifiers, and it's nice to see what I've missed after I've played through. I fail to see how it's a bad deal mozeley.

I agree; if I buy a 'vast' game I always like a book. Eg The FF games - you can miss so much without a book. Not essential, of course but handy to have - and this seems a good price for a 'Collectors Edition'. Heated as it seems decent for those wanting this item.

Go back under your hole.

Got this on pre-order from Play for £11.99 with my pre-order of the game. Love the CE Fallout guides.

This looks like a really nice book. But I'd probably only flick through it occasionally if I bought it, when I was playing Fallout 3 I just used the Fallout Wiki. Don't underestimate the use of something like this on a game like Fallout though. It's useful to know about the different things you can get from doing each quest, sometimes the rewards are much better if you do things a certain way.

Yeah... first time I played F3 I completed it in 25 hours, thinking I'd covered everything.

Found out I'd missed some stuff a year later.

Second playthrough: 78 hours. (Albeit with DLC)

I don't normally condone strategy guides, but for this I'd give an exception!

Showing at £13.99

But still hot & ordered, cheers!

Geez, glad I ordered when I did, it was £12.99 a couple hours ago. Still £16.99 elsewhere but a pound is a pound. Price adjusted to reflect current pricing.

£13.95 @ Zavvi for this....

That silly troll above evidently has never played a Fallout game before. These guides are quintessential for people who really like to go in depth into each task and mission. I bought the Fallout 3 GOTY book to help with the Alien Archivist trophy an some other missions that for some reason I was unable to find.

The guy who writes them - David Hodgson - is a brit who lives in the USA and used to be a prolific games magazine writer. There's an element of warmth and real understanding to his guides - which helps it feel less mechanical and contrived like some guides that I have come across in my time.

Can't wait for this game to come out... its so rewarding. And a time vampire.

It can be picked up instore as WHSmith for £12.99 And The Hut for £13.93 delivered

My first PS3 died whilst I was halfway through FO3, I have since bought the Game of the year edition and Im unsure wether to start FO3 again or just jump into FO.Vegas? Ive lost so many hours to this game already,lol.

Do FO3... by the time you finish it FO Vegas will be a little cheaper!

Have ordered but From WHSMITH for £12.99 and will just collect from the store. but thanks for the reminder and have some heat.

I dont usually agree with these guides but I guess for a huge game like Fallout might be handy.

Still, there is this thing called the "interweb". Proved very handy when I played Fallout.

fallout.wikia.com/wik…t_3 = Free!

Definitely worth getting the Fallout guide. I got the Fallout 3 book when I was about 2/3 of the way through the game and couldn't believe how much I'd missed or simply didn't know about. I don't normally rate Prima guides that well as they're often lazy extensions of the instruction manual, but the last Fallout one was very well written and informative.

Sorry mozeley but you clearly don't know what you're talking about. If you don't agree with strategy guides then the simple solution is to not buy any and avoid looking at related web pages that you apparently have no interest in.

Now £12.39, deal now better than when it was first posted. I have updated the original post.

Hot
Will definetly be getting this, you think you've got everything the first time round then you look at the book and bam, you've added another month's worth of play.
Exxxxcellent.

According to interviews I've seen, should be even more (side quests, guns ect...) in this game than there was in FO3.

2 weeks to UK release - offer still valid.

Just so you know I used this interactive map a lot when doing Fallout 3
