Fallout 4 finally launches tomorrow, and for those still in need of a console to play it on, Best Buy makes a solid case for PlayStation 4. The electronics retailer is offering a free copy of the $60 open world RPG with a purchase of one of three PS4 bundles.

Your console options include the $349.99 Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection bundle, the $399.99 Destiny: The Taken King limited edition set, and the new $429.99 Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 system. Whichever package you choose, Fallout 4 will be bundled in for free.

Best Buy is also giving away a $15 controller charging station to new PS4 buyers who take advantage of the deal. The combination of items represents a savings of more than $75.

The deal is available now, and includes the option to pick up the items in-store so that you can go home with your copy of Fallout 4 on launch day.

Update: GameStop has just launched a nearly identical deal of its own. With a purchase of the Uncharted PS4 bundle for $349.99, the store will throw in Fallout 4 at no added cost. Unlike Best Buy, GameStop limits your system choices to the Uncharted set.

Check out our review of Bethesda's latest if you're still deciding whether or not to pick up the game. You can also watch its recent launch trailer for an in-depth look.

If you already know you'll be taking tomorrow off for Fallout-related reasons, you can try passing of this helpful doctor's note to your boss or teacher.
