Possibly Bugged?

I was getting a few levels under my belt before going into Dead Money, but ventured in before leaving to grab the Dean's Electronics book (you can enter the bunker and explore the side room without having to leave for the Sierra Madre). As an experiment while I was there, I activated the Vending Machine. I was able to activate it, and threw the two packs of Cigarettes I had at it for 10 Sierra Madre Chips. I then left. Later on, I came back and turned some more Chips in. Between these two transactions I earned roughly 350 Sierra Madre Chips. Because I hadn't been through Dead Money, I decided to hold on to them, as there was nothing in the Vending Machine I was interested in.

Now, later, I finally decided to do Dead Money, and in preparation, I dumped everything I had in my inventory into a container in my house. As I put the Sierra Madre chips into the Container, this Achievement popped. I only had around 350 chips, but got credit for having gotten 500. I don't know why this happened; only that it did. If someone can explain it, they're more than welcome to add this to the article. Swk3000 22:33, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I got awarded 500/500 and the achievement after getting 290 chips and then transitioning into Dead Money. I'm guessing that the script for stashing away your inventory removes the chips, but then re-adds them to your new inventory, causing the challenge script to treat them as having been newly acquired. May load GECK later to check this. Pyrion 02:57, February 23, 2011 (UTC)
The same happened to me, so this seems to be triggered by having 250+ chips on entering the Sierra Madre. I tried with only 210 and it didn't happen, so I'm assuming that you have to have half of the required chips before entering for this to happen, otherwise it won't occur.
