This is the best price out there for the special edition.
This would make an ideal christamas gift!!!

The best ganme released this year?!

Special Edition contains:
Limited Edition Embossed Steel game case
Two Discs worth of bonus content containing the game soundtrack and a 'Making Of' DVD
Big Daddy scaled replica

After your plane crashes into icy uncharted waters, you discover a rusted bathysphere and descend into Rapture, a city hidden beneath the sea. Constructed as an idealistic society for a hand picked group of scientists, artists and industrialists, the idealism is no more. Now the city is littered with corpses, wildly powerful guardians roam the corridors as little girls loot the dead, and genetically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn. BioShock forces you to question the lengths to which you will go and how much of your humanity you will sacrifice...to save your own life.

Features:


Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your very survival.
Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to the enemy and environment.
Genetically modify your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city, empowering you with fantastic and often grotesque abilities.
Experience truly next generation graphics that vividly illustrate the forlorn art deco city, highlighted by the most detailed and realistic water effects ever developed in a video game.
Make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture or save them?

This is a really good game. Too bad marketing for it wasn't that great. As Halo 3 was just over hyped.

Price is showing as £19.99 now, was £17.99 3min ago, guess they sold a few at that price.

Don't forget 11% Quidco

Excellent stuff. I was going off PC gaming since I got a DS, I think I've just been converted back. I love Collector's Editions and Bioshock is a great game, from what I've heard. Heat + Rep. :)
Figures are also a guilty pleasure. :oops: :w00t:

what is that Russ?

Ordered - cheers for sharing the deal :)

When this was first release and deals posted here a few mentioned the figurine was easily breakable and flimsy. But for the price it's as good as the standard edition boxset. LOL.

Don't forget Quidco ;)
#13
It seems there was a worry it included a root kit but they deny this,

http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070826-clearing-the-air-bioshock-does-not-contain-a-rootkit.html

However there are folders (Securom) that can not be removed and are hidden from view, presumably this means there are still some security issues, though not as bad as Sonys rootkit.

Hope youre new build went well flashpanther :)

oh great not another one of those copyright protection softwares that destroy your PC in process ARGH! Last one I has was the noturious 'X3-Reunion'. Ever since installing it my DVD-drive on my very expensive laptop has struggled to read any discs at all, to the point I had to purchase an external LG drive. They always deny it. I knew X3-Reunion was told to destroy the DVD-drive laser somehow (?!?!) but I didn't believe it naturally. Like an idiot I tried it and found out the hard way. Can't believe some Game maufacturers get away with it simply by denial.

Well I've ordered the bioshock SE game now. I'll check up this 'Securom' on wilkipedia and if an issue like 'X3' game had i'll sell bioshock on ebay.

Ah you remembered me and the PC build :) Still on going mate. Getting in few UV lights now and modding cabling with UV and waiting for the 8800GT graphic cards with passive cooling.

The anti piracy software may give you a problem when installing this game.The OH had tried two copies and neither would install......................he had to download a torrent to get it working(rather than keep going back to GAME to exchange it!)

OMG £20

I payed £55 for the 360 version.
#17
I would certainly patch the game straight after installation :x

[COLOR=red]"[/COLOR]Criticism and technical issues

Since BioShock was released, several issues have been found, with most uncovered in the PC version.[92] In both the BioShock demo and release version, it was observed that the field of view (FOV) used in widescreen was set such that it appeared that there was less visible in the display compared to the 4:3 format,[93] conflicting with original reports from a developer on how widescreen would have been handled.[94] This was a design decision made during development,[95][96] but in a future patch, users will be allowed to alter the FOV value.[97]

BioShock for the PC (both the retail version and that available through Steam) utilizes SecuROM copy protection software, and requires internet activation to complete installation. This was reportedly responsible for the cancellation of a midnight release in Australia on August 23, 2007, due to 2K Games servers being unavailable, as the game would be unplayable until they were back online.[98] Through SecuROM, users were originally limited to two activations of the game. Users found that even if they uninstalled the game prior to reinstallation, they were still required to call SecuROM to re-activate the game. The issue was worsened by the fact that the incorrect telephone number had been included in the printed manual, as well as essentially forcing international customers to make expensive international calls to the US. In response, 2K Games and SecuROM increased the number of activations to five before requiring the user to call again. However, as no information had been provided by 2K on the existence of these measures prior to the game going on sale—or on the retail box of the game itself—many remain dissatisfied. Users also found that it was necessary to activate the game for each user on the same machine, which was criticized by some as an attempt to limit customers' fair use rights.[99][100] 2k Games has denied that this was the intent of the limitation.[101]

Two months after the initial release, 2K attempted to alleviate customer complaints by developing a special pre-uninstallation utility to refund activation slots to the user.[102] This tool however does not address situations where the game has been installed on a PC which uses more than one user account as it only works once per PC (unlike activations which are counted per user-account), nor is it able to revoke an activation if the installation has become unusable, for example by hard disk failure, effectively rendering such activations permanently lost. 2K Games has specifically mentioned each of these issues in the revoke tool FAQ,[102] and have stated that until software solutions are found for such situations they will handle any further requests for additional activations past the 5-activation limit on a case-by-case basis.[103]

Alerts from virus scanners and malware detectors, which can be triggered by SecuROM software, led to some debate about whether a rootkit was being installed; this was denied by 2K Games.[104][105][106] However, an uninstallation of BioShock does not remove the files installed by SecuROM or the registry keys used, and some of these files are impossible to delete in the standard way.[107][108]

BioShock was also criticized for not supporting Pixel shader 2.0b video cards (such as the Radeon X800/X850), which were considered high-end graphics cards in 2004–2005, and accounted for about 24% of surveyed hardware collected through Valve's Steam platform at the time of BioShock's release. User efforts to create a Pixel shader 2.0-compatible version of the software have met with some success,[109] but 2K Games has issued no statements regarding possible Pixel shader 2.0 support being added by an official patch.[110]



Limited Collector’s edition
Following the creation of a fan petition for a special edition, Take-Two stated that they would publish a special edition of BioShock only if the petition received 5,000 signatures;[111] this number of signatures was reached after just five hours.[112] Subsequently, a poll was posted on the Cult of Rapture community website (operated by 2K Games) in which visitors could vote on what features they would most like to see in a special edition; the company stated that developers would take this poll into serious consideration.[113] To determine what artwork would be used for the Limited Edition cover, 2K games ran a contest, with the winning entry provided by Adam Meyer.[114]

On April 23, 2007, the Cult of Rapture website confirmed that the Limited Collector's Edition would be sold solely within the United States and Canada and exclusively from EB Games and GameStop stores,[115] and that would include a 6-inch Big Daddy figurine (many of which were damaged; a replacement initiative is in place), a "Making Of" DVD, and a soundtrack CD. Before the special edition was released, the proposed soundtrack CD was replaced with The Rapture EP.[116][COLOR=red]"[/COLOR]

Seems as if the item is now out of stock :( Just when I try and order :|
#19
I hope they dont mess me around and say my order is cancelled now after all this messing about
#20
Anybody have a despatch time yet? It still just says Ordered for me :(
#21
mine just states 'ordered' under my gameplay accounts order history. Would have expected the order to have been proccessed by now. Times like these i think phoning to order and get immediate processing would be better. Anyway not used gameplay for ages and any bad experiance here and i wont be using them again in any hurry i can tell you. so here is fingers crossed gameplay produce the goods and keep us all happy with a good service :)
#22
Interesting flashpanther - it amazes me they will compromise paying customers systems in order to thwart the pirates, who have probably removed the Securom protection anyway. The only loser is the paying customer, and 2Kgames customer support who will surely be worked incredibly hard trying to put things right.

Received Special edition boxset today :)
