The BioShock 2 Special Edition Is Gorgeous, Groovy

BioShock fans ought dust off the ol' phonograph for the release of BioShock 2's special edition package, a gorgeous collection of unnecessary goodies that is music to the ears and a feast for the eyes.

And at $US99.99 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, $US89.99 for Games for Windows LIVE, it's no small dent in the wallet. But the lovely package you see above comes with all these wonderful things. Even a copy of BioShock 2 itself, if you can believe it!

  • BioShock 2
  • Vinyl 180g LP featuring the orchestral score from the original BioShock
  • CD containing the BioShock 2 orchestral score
  • A 164 page 8-inch x 11-inch hardbound artbook chock full of developer commentary
  • Three posters featuring vintage ads from Rapture (rolled)

It will ship the same day — February 9, 2010—as the common version of BioShock 2. And 2K Games' Cult of Rapture site says the package is "limited to a single production run" if that lights a fire under your pre-ordering habit.



    Nice but I was really hoping for a friend for my big daddy figure.

      I agree. Who the hell cares about some art work. Id like a figure to go with my others thanks!

    *Prays that it comes out in Australia at a reasonable price.*

      At USD$99, you'll likely be able to import it at a comparable price to what EB will be selling the game alone at... $129.95 for PC, $149.95 for PS3 and 360

        *Prays that the 360 version is regionless.*

        No way in HELL I'm paying that much.

    Looks awesome, though these special editions are beginning to get somewhat tiresome. I've purchased a few in my time, yet after the initial joy of prancing about with my cloth maps and hardcover artbooks I forget they even exist.

    Actually, the one recent special edition that worked for me was ODST - since I needed another controller and I use it often.

    A further aside - I'm waiting for the special edition of a game that actually doesn't contain the game. It'll happen.

      Rise of the Argonauts on the PC. ; ) It was supposed to have the game in it, but there was some manufacturing error or whatever their excuse is, and now the "special edition" sells for like $15 at JB.

      On-topic, the special edition looks pretty cool, but it's not for me. Especially if I'd have to buy it from EB. >_>


    $150? Are you kidding!

    That's a joke when the Bioshock CE was far better and was only $89 on release day when I bought mine from GAME..

    That looks okay but is only worth about $109-$119 maximum..

    Play-asia is your FRIEND
