Fallout 4 Somehow Overcomes Internal Inconsistency Around Jet Drug To Be Best Selling Bethesda Game Ever
Fallout 4 has heroically overcome a glaring internal consistency error around exactly when the fictional drug ‘Jet’ was invented, powering on to become the best selling Bethesda Studios game of all time.
The drug, despite being described as a post-war invention in previous titles, is listed on a terminal as being shipped to one of the Fallout vaults before the war starts. Things looked shaky for a while, but Bethesda can now confirm that consumers were able to overlook this disgusting error and purchase millions of copies of the game.
“We’d like to thank our customers for their support during this difficult time,” commented a visibly relieved Pete Hines, VP of Marketing at Bethesda.
“It was touch and go for a while there. Normally the market would step in and brutally punish this kind of hubris, but we threw ourselves on the mercy of our fans and they rewarded us. All has been forgiven and the Jet incident is well behind us, only a dim speck in the rear view mirrors of the expensive new cars we all have now.”
Irate Fallout 1 and 2 fans are struggling to come to terms with the news, certain that the blockbuster billion dollar game developer had surely slipped up for the last time after “getting lucky” with the release of Fallout 3, “a dumbed-down game for babies”.
“I couldn’t believe it when I heard the sales figures,” said gamer Frankie Hansen. “I thought they were dead for sure.”
“I guess the public will really swallow anything.”
