Too bad none of those are Nuka Cola or Sunset Sarsaparilla caps (Fallout Currency), they're effectively worthless in this reality AND in Fallout. He may as well be trying to buy a big mac with Yen.

As the article says,

As someone pointed out, not a single cap is from a Nuka Cola or Sunset Sarsaparilla. As a matter of fact, the majority appear to be from different brands of hard cider. Now, according to an estimated currency exchange rate for in-game bottle caps punching calculator multiply by seven, carry the one -- I estimate 2,240 caps to be valued at just over $1,000. However, given the fact these are predominately hard cider caps, that value drops to just a hair over completely worthless. And for the record, yes, I'm just jealous I didn't think of this first because you know this guy is gonna get the hookup.

2,240 caps = 4.704 kg scrap = 10.371 pounds * $.05 = about fifty two cents worth of "light iron" scrap

Yeah, I didn't actually read the article. Wasn't interesting enough to merit clicking, but the title was worth an attempt at humor. Guess the writer's quicker on the draw than I am.

Instead of stopping it, they should tie in with Coke, make limited edition Nuka Cola bottles, and officially accept those caps as currency. Any split profits from the drink sales and advertising + PR value will more than make up for "giving away" the game.

That sounds bloody brilliant. Why isn't it happening? Is it super expensive to change the cap paint or something? I can't imagine they'd be 'worth' enough to counterfeit with a max payout of a steam key.

Man, I never drink coke except as a mixer, but if they did that I'd buy a fucking slab of the stuff just 'cause awesome.

Even though they aren't the correct caps, I honestly really hope they let him have it.

Think about it...just how long do you think this has been in the making for him to have that many bottle caps saved up?

Human currency continues to elude me. Had I known that hoarding shiny caps were of value I would have started decades ago!

Lmao if I was in charge I'd make sure he got a pre-order, the PR alone is worth it. Hell make it a policy where 2,240 bottle caps is a way to buy the game lol.

More like a policy stating caps can no longer be used to purchase the game :/

That's pretty hilarious. They definitely need to send him a copy.

It'd be cool if they gave the guy the limited edition.
