I pre-ordered it, yah ! this is going to be awesome. I usually don't pay the extra for the LE but with the Big Daddy figurine, I couldn't help myself.


EDIT: Insomniac! There was going to be a poster! When and are they available anywhere, like on ebay. I got to have me one of them!

There still might be one but it is not mentioned. I remember when I voted I voted for the cloth poster and it looked nice , if you google Bioshock Limited Edition they might have an old blog post featuring the items you could vote for I don't have the link on-hand.

And as far as I know they are not selling them.

BUT it still might come with the game but I am not promising anything. I guess we will see next Tuesday.

The manager at my local gamestop showed me the packaging for the collectors edition. It is pretty awesome, it comes in a huge box with a window to view the figure (looks like its made of ceramic), which is a whole lot better then that cheap crappy lost planet figure that fell apart with the slightest touch. For only $10 more, you will be getting more then what you paid for.

The regular edition packaging even looked awesome (came with a case sleeve with big daddy popped up).

This is also available in England too but only from GAME, you can check out their website. It looks exactly the same as the US version.

Who isn't a sucker for a Limited Edition?

At other forums, I saw these promo pics of the Collector's Edition, as it is called in Europe. Mentions a steelbook DVD case. I've also heard the discussions/complaining about the US's Limited Edition, which may have just a plastic DVD case. That's what's shown in the EBGames promo picture. Looks like it could be a double wide DVD case, which would be nice to hold the extra discs. I'd hate it to be a regular size DVD case, with extra discs inside the case with paper sleeves.

I know, after all the other games releasing a LE with just a metal box and bonus behind the scenes dvd, Bioshock is stepping up the game. The CD looks amazing, after playing the demo, I cant wait for the music. Plus it looks like an old record. A Big Daddy figurine...... If I dare say cooler than Master Chief........ Is awesome. A standard making of( behind the scene) dvd that is expected, plus a different box containing the best game of the summer. Wow, all for 10 bucks, that is why I pre-ordered the LE version!

Can anyone tell me where I can pre-order the Limited Edition of Bioshock? I was about to pre-order it off of EBGames, but now it doesn't show it there anymore?

You may be too late Dom, but I'd try Gamestop. If the online store doesn't work try calling up some local stores to you and ask if they have pre-orders available for it.

The packaging sure looks awesome, so does the figurine, and yeah, which gamer isn't a sucker for a metal box .

Took me a while to find it, here in Belgium it was not available anywhere anymore, so I got a pre-order in The Netherlands. Will take me a 6 hour roundtrip to my parents to pick it up, but it's worth it.

This is an old picture but is a picture again of what is suppose to be in the Collector's Edition. I don't know if they are going to still do it but one of the things that we were going to get was going to be a Poster of some kind. In this picture it's (as you can see) a cloth poster. I just wanted to state that we shouldn't forget that we're also going to get a sweet cloth poster... unless if they change their mind lol.



Also, this is apparently the Cover Art of the Limited/Collector's Edition version of the game.



Link to see the full cover.

I just read a listing on ebay selling the limited edition contents and it said that the statue is too heavy to ship, so if it wasn't already mentioned, I think it's probably made out of some heavy material like pewter.

Sadly that is a very old picture they used to see what people wanted in it , people voted on what they wanted so the cloth poster is no longer in the package as far as I know and the figure is way different and looks way better than that.

They have a picture of the full final big daddy figure.


And the figure is not too heavy to ship maybe that person is lazy lol , I got it on Gamestop.com and it said nothing about extra money for weight like it would with Guitar Hero or something.

I heard the figure is kind of heavy though from Ken Levin from the Bioshock team but I don't see how that person would say it is too heavy to ship over eBay.

I so hope we get that cloth poster though I looove stuff like that.

The picture I posted with the reported contents of the Limited Edition was the picture for what was actually said to be IN the Limited Edition. Also, I prefaced what I said with "This is an old picture..." Another thing, I posted earlier the picture of the Big Daddy Figurine for the LE. Anyways though, like you, I heard as well that the cloth poster was taken out of the LE. I did sign the petition to make the LE and voted for the contents of it. I will find out in 4 more hours if thats the case or not so I'll definitely come back and let everyone know if it's included or not if someone doesn't beat me to it from the East Coast. Lets hope that we can get everything that they said we would and didn't change their minds!

Too bad the Lost Planet figurine is so small and didn't come with any weapons... at least mine didn't But the Big Daddy figurine is awesome as hell. There doesn't appear to be any lack of kick assery in the Big Daddy figurine like there was with the Lost Planet one. Yay Bioshock!

Okay so here are the final results on the Bioshock: Limited Edition. It comes with the " 6" Big Daddy Figurine, Behind the Scenes DVD, Original Moby CD: The BioShock EP, Contest-winning cover art by Cult of Rapture Member Adam Meyer." Also, we do not receive a metal case like originally thought. It is the standard plastic case that we always receive. I took some pictures and I will be posting them for those who are interested.

Sorry for how big the pictures are but I didn't really want to resize it so each one is about 1.26mb or so. I will try and resize them later on so for now these are just temporary links. Also, sorry for the pictures being blurry and everything but my battery was about to die when I took them. If anyone wants clearer pictures then you can feel free to ask but I doubt anyone will need them.

Nope , sadly not. I would totally buy one though for like $10 lol.

Also IMO the normal edition looked more kickass with the boxart. they showed it on G4 last week during the whole T R U debacle and it had some kinda slip case with the Big Daddy on it where it kinda stands out don't know the word for it.

It's a metal case if I remember correctly with a punched out image of a Big Daddy with a plastic slip cover over it much like the Lost Planet collector's edition. It looks a hell of a lot better than the collector's edition game but hey, I get a Big Daddy Figurine and those that buy the normal copy don't right? lol...

Thanks for sharing the pics MrRedrum!

The regular version in the US comes in a regular plastic DVD case. The slip cover is made of carboard, but it's embossed so the graphics have some texture and stand out.

Europe still gets the steelbook case in their limited edition, as you can see in the pics I posted above.

What does it say where it normally says "Only on Xbox 360"? It looks bigger to me and am just wondering.
