Video games being found that have been signed by famous folks isn't something terribly new. These signatures are often from the people that actually worked on the game, celebrities endorsing the game, or just the kid down the street that wanted to make his claim on a copy of the latest Madden title. Of all the oddities out there floating around, the copy of Fallout 3 signed by Matthew Perry is one of the weirder ones. See, Perry gave the game and an Xbox 360 to Ellen DeGeneres to auction off for charity in 2009. The copy has apparently resurfaced, and was bought for a measly $5. Poor Matthew Perry.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Apparently he did it by expressing his love for the franchise in the most unlikely of places: The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The View.
He was on the shows more than a year ago, promoting a movie, but while he was on Ellen he gifted his host with an Xbox and a copy of Fallout 3, saying:
I played this video game so often that I injured my hand so severely that I had to go to a hand doctor and get injections in my hand because I love this video game so much.
Apparently all that dedication (and subsequent publication of said dedication) paid off, because he'll be voicing Benny, the head of the Geckos family in Fallout: New Vegas.
