BIOSHOCK: Limited Edition

Just read on the Bioshock Official Site that they will be releasing both a regular (59.99 version) of the game, as well as a LE version of the game (69.99). It will include not only a specially designed packaging, but also:

1. BIG DADDY figurine (sweet...it better be good quality pewter or silver)
2. "Making Of" DVD (obviously this is in every CE/LE of any game)
3. Soundtrack Of The Game's Music (FREEKIN AWESOME....creepy also)




I am so freekin excited, I think I might have let a few drops go in my underwear!!! HaHa....This game is gonna be SVEET!!!

Sounds alright, apart from these stupid "special" cases that insist on not sitting on your racks happily and/or require 3 different keys & 10 minutes to open. *shakes fists at the heavens*.

Ta for the info!

I have the collector's edition preordered. I'm really excited for this game to release in August.

As far as I know, the Big Daddy figurine is made of pewter, so never fear.

Aha. I understand the dark, evil premise behind them now. Don't get me wrong - they look great as well as being more secure than Fort Knox - it's merely the need for custom-designed abstract architectural racks that only Piet Mondrian could create that annoy. Spose there's always a shelf, though.

What makes me wonder is why they charge alot more just to have a metal case, i have a few limited rls's like PDZ - GOW - Burnout Revenge. I most prob will not buy the collecters addition and just buy the norm rls.

I attempted to resize the picture so hopefully it won't be entirely too big. But those are pics of the prototype of what we are to receive in our LE versions of the game.


"I am proud to announce the first images of the Big Daddy prototype. Standing approximately 6 inches tall, this bad boy will be as gorgeous in the LE box as you see him here. I don't even think the pictures do him justice.
I'm in love." - From the Bioshock Website.

The same person also said, "NOTE: THIS IS A PROTOTYPE. THE COLORING IS NOT FINALIZED IN THESE MODELS. I will be updating as soon as I get photos with the finalized coloring, complete with all the finishing details."

All that for just an extra 10 bucks? Yeah, I'll get be getting the LE too. The packaging looks like one of those dual DVD cases. Hopefully they will stay with this idea instead of those bad tin cases. I seriously hate those.

I like it but I wish we were still getting the cloth poster it looked nice

I still have it pre-ordered but I just have a thing for little things like that , I still have my Ninja Gaiden cloth wall scroll hanging on my door. Kinda long too but looks nice.

I don't like the figurine, but the additional content will make me buy this one. I'll probably give the figurine to a friend who likes to collect them.
