yeah, I had it too. For about 2 seconds till I reverted back to my save from right before I got it. It's super super ugly IMO. Does it do anything besides change the pip boy's appearance? Neat that you can do it, too bad it looks so crappy...

It is placed incorrectly sometimes on female characters, causing it to be at an angle when you view it.

I had it on my last run through, I think you should be able to choose if you want it equipped as I thought it was ugly.

yep. you ask the guy that gave it to you to replace your pipboy.

Ah, I didn't know that or I'd have gone back to my original pip-boy.
The gold one just made me want to hurl, luckily that file was a quick run through to get the hardcore achievement.

Once you get it, can you take it off for your old one, i like the idea, but it may become a bit of an eysore. Nice novelty item though, i'd like to add it too my collection!

the pimp-boy-3billion is kind of cool with its gold look, but i think it looks pretty much better when you use cateye to have nightvision then the pimpboy have a nice chrome look

i've noticed that occasionally it will act weird, causing it to either be WAY too bright, or too dim. but this also happens with the normal pip-boy, just not as much.

thats a documented bug on the official site. should be fixed in time.

it's sometimes too bright depending on the environment. i've still stuck with it because it's pimpin' :D You can always ask the guy in Freeside to change it back to regular Pip Boy mode.

as of now, no i don't think there is a fix. i'm assuming this, along with other graphical glitches, are towards the bottom of Bethesda's "To Do List".

I guess its a pretty cool collectable in some sorts but it doesnt really fit with the "Post Apocalyptic" theme imo.

I've never thought of it as a collectable, more of an Easter egg. An Easter egg hidden in plain view. And if you have the wacky wasteland perk on, it makes cool Porno music when you get it.
