Thinking of picking up BioShock 2 on February 9? Let’s take a look at the preorder deals and limited editions on offer for 2K’s “thinking man’s” shooter.
As is becoming the norm with major releases, different retailers are offering different incentives. So let’s look at what you can get at EB Games, JB Hi-Fi and GAME.
EB Games EB has an exclusive BioShock 2 Special Edition. It retails for $148 on 360 and PS3 and $128 on PC. Inside you’ll find: * 12″ Vinyl LP with BioShock 2 orchestral score * Audio CD with BioShock 2 orchestral score * Three vintage Rapture advertisement posters * BioShock 2 art book, 164 pages and hardcover * BioShock 2 game
Also, if you preorder at EB you’ll score yourself two unlockable multiplayer characters – Arte Blanche the Actress and Ziggo the Fisherman. This applies to either the Special or the standard edition.
GAME 2K has arranged for a second limited edition, the BioShock 2 Rapture Edition, to be sold at GAME. Its RRP is $119.95 on 360 and PS3 and $109.95 on PC, although GAME’s online store currently has all three for $15 off their respective RRPs.
