Rockstar Games announces Bully: Scholarship Edition for the Xbox 360™ and Wii™

New York, NY - July 19, 2007 - Rockstar Games is proud to announce that Bully: Scholarship Edition is coming to the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo this Winter.

Both the Wii and Xbox 360 versions will retain the wit and deep gameplay of the previously released PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system title and will boast additional new content. Bully: Scholarship Edition takes place in the fictional New England boarding school of Bullworth Academy, and tells the story of 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he experiences the highs and lows of adjusting to a new school. Capturing the hilarity and awkwardness of adolescence perfectly, Bully: Scholarship Edition pulls the player into its cinematic and engrossing world. Universally acclaimed upon first release, Bully: Scholarship Edition is a genre-crossing action game with a warmth and pathos that is unrivaled.

Bully received a perfect "10/10" from Electronic Gaming Monthly and 1up.com and was heralded as "a great, well-crafted action game that has one of the best senses of humor around" by IGN.com. USA Today called it "a fantastic debut title by Rockstar Vancouver." The San Francisco Chronicle wrote "Bully has no shortage of creative energy, offering an immersive boarding school experience that is imaginative, funny and filled with surprises."

Come and explore the zealous joy, mirth, and torment of youth with Jimmy Hopkins and Bully: Scholarship Edition when enrollment commences this Winter.

I never got to play this on my PS2, so I'm looking forward to playing it.

Bully coming out for the 360 is Fantastic news! Great finds, Randal! I didn't pick it up for the PS2, but I will for the 360. I can't wait!:)

I might give it a rent, or buy it if its a budget title, which are rare now. But I dont think they will really change anything at all.

07-20-2007, 01:10 AM
I'm still moderately exciting, but this is way too late. If it's cheap I'll buy it, but I'm not sure about which platform to buy it for.

07-20-2007, 01:20 AM
Sweet, I wanted to play this game for my PS2, but I always forget to rent it when I'm out.

07-20-2007, 02:06 AM
It was retarded, it was video game geeks who cant beat anyone up 2 have a chance to prtend to be a bully....maybe a rent :(

Thats good news, never got a chance to play it on the PS2, so I'm looking forward to trying it on the 360, hopefully it's an easy 1000 points.

07-20-2007, 02:48 AM
if it does it will be a prty sick game i think

07-20-2007, 02:48 AM
Cant wait to play this on 360. Was great on PS2, and now with slightly sprooced up visuals and achievements, what could be better.

Hopefully it avoids a $tag of 59.99$ tho, cus as good as it's going to be on 360, it just wont be able to warrent anymore than 39.99$. Maybe, just maybe 49.99$, but that would be stretching it.

Cool Always Wanted That Game But Never Had A Ps2. Finally Ill Get It On The 360. I Wonder Wat The Achievements Will Be Like?

Good to see it come to the 360 but i wouldn't buy it for full price.

07-20-2007, 10:18 AM
It seems a bit odd though that this old of a game is coming to the 360.

I have a hard time picturing it being any less than 60.

07-20-2007, 11:37 AM
This was the last game I played for PS2. Less then 3 days after I beat it, I bought my 360. I'll wait to find it used since I played it already, but the game is defenitly worth getting. I'll play it again to get the points since I already know where everything is...

Bully on 360!
I think that's just crazy. I seriously ditched this game cause I bought it the same time I bought my 360. I played it a few times and thought it was great, and then just forgot all about it when I hooked up the 360. Maybe I should go back and give it a play,, I really loved how around different holidays the entire game would be decorated to that holiday. Smashing pumpkins on halloween was the shiznit.

07-20-2007, 03:06 PM
hahahaha i loved this game on the original Xbox my friend and i would play this when we got bored from halo 2

I will defiantly look into getting this game

07-20-2007, 03:09 PM
great news, i never play it on ps2, so i'm looking forward for this one

07-20-2007, 03:43 PM
i never played it on ps2 either [cuz i hate song =]], but it really does look like a kick ass game. cant wait to see what they come up with for the achievements:woop:

07-20-2007, 04:52 PM
That's awesome news. My only worry is that they will skimp on the graphics because it is coming to the Wii. Hopefully they will just port the PS2 version over to the Wii with a few enhancements and redo the graphics for the 360 version. This is good news though. I always wanted to play this game, but it's on the PS2 (which I own...but it's only for the God of War series).

thats awesome news i cant wait that game is great

07-21-2007, 04:47 AM
probably just a ps2 port with achievements. If it's cheap I'll buy it.

07-21-2007, 05:53 AM
I have and beat Bully on the ps2. It was a good game i definitly wouldnt mind playing thru again and achievements would def give me a reason to do so again on the 360 but noway i'd buy it, def a rental.

07-21-2007, 07:47 AM
Wasn't it originally going to be released on the PS2 & 360 at the same time? What happened there?

07-21-2007, 07:57 AM
you know... i had some small hope this would come out for the 360... although I really didnt ever think it would... glad to hear it though ... was contemplating the buy for ps2.

07-21-2007, 06:41 PM
This should have easy achievements, cos the PS2 version was easy

07-21-2007, 07:06 PM
Good to see it come to the 360 but i wouldn't buy it for full price.

Definitely. I still have a PS2 sitting right next to the 360, so if need be i can still get a used (read: cheap) version of it...even if i won't get gamer points for it. Still, looking forward to this being available.

07-23-2007, 05:56 AM
You can buy a ps2 for 50 bucks off craigslist and play it now. I did it, Bully was fun, but having beaten all the fun parts, I'm not interested. But yeah guys, by all means, pay 60 bucks for what (essentially) is now 25 used.

I just got a Wii today...awesome...I think I'll be picking this up for the 360 though. This was and still is one of my favorite games of all time, never got old of it even after beating it numerous times. I hope the achievements are tough and that they add some really good new content. Awesome find and I am happy. This was the last thing my PS2 ever did (wait, maybe FFXII was the last thing...I forgot...). If you haven't played it, I highly reccomend it when it comes out, even though much better titles are comming out this year...I reserved 8 games today along with my Wii purchase! Awesome year and this makes it better.

Maybe the xbox 360 version will include the mode to play on Live.

Just think about it, bullying all those annoying 13 year old kids that can't shut up.

07-23-2007, 03:51 PM
Since my PS2 broke, I can't wait for this game!

07-23-2007, 11:14 PM
sweet , i hope its fun
