Bioshock 2 - PS3 & Xbox 360 - £2 @ Wilkinsons

70
Found 26th May 2012
Went into Wilkinsons in Bedminster, Bristol today and they had a stand that said all CDs, DVDs and Games on this stand are £2 no matter what the price sticker says. Amongst the dross they had Bioshock 2 on both consoles. I bought a copy on PS3. Not sure if nationwide, might be worth a look.

Not even one of those racks in my Wilko unfortunately! Good deal this, though I suspect it may be a lucky find I'll definitely have another look tomorrow, cheers

Another wild goose chase going hot.

It gets 88% on Metacritic (ps3), not too shabby. Didn't realise the first one scored a whopping 94% (ps3) with the xbox faring even better (96%). Obviosuly a bargain @ £2

Do I need to play the first one to enjoy the second one?

I'd put money on Junk4's ^ comment being negative, i've ignored him so i don't see his comments any more (thank god)

Awesome deal if you can get it Brilliant game!

Great game and a bargain at £2 hot

Brilliant sequel, to a truly amazing original.

You probably don't but just play the first one anyway, it's a masterpiece.

good game, good price but good luck finding one again

380 stores.... at least 300 will have games, dvds, cds all varied. Not a wild goose chase.

Deals* not hot uk deal. DEALS i.e more than one.

I just completed the second game yesterday, without having played the first before. Thought it was a great game, quite an immersive story, decent gameplay (albeit a little tricky to get your head round at first) and excellent characters.

Would definitely suggest buying it, especially at only £2! I'm sure the first game is probably better, but I didn't regret buying the second for a lot more than this price.

A similar deal was posted for Wilko recently only relating to cheap copies of Motorstorm Apocalypse and only a couple in the Midlands were able to find them.

Just been to the Sheffield Highstreet store and they had a big basket full of ex-rental DVDs but no games
Talked to a guy that worked there and he mentioned they've had the £2 offer on for almost a week.

Just picked up motorstorm apocalypse.there was Shaun white on Wii and Lego rockband ps3. Stockton on tees.

That'll teach them, how? It came out two years ago, the price means jack.

As a sequel relative to its predecessor, Bioshock 2 is actually very good, which some fantastic character development and an ending which made up for the awful ending to the first game.

Anyone who doesn't buy this game for under £10 doesn't deserve the experience.

No, the ending of Bioshock 2 was fair worse in my opinion because *Spoiler* I really wanted the opportunity to smash Sophia Lambs gaunt twisted face in but the game didn't give me the chance to do so. There wasn't even a proper end battle, just a mini splicer gauntlet before the cavalry arrived.

They manually reduced the titles, this one is company reduced.

Love Bioshock 2 - for purchasers on PS3, the Minervas Den DLC is around £3 till Wednesday. Well worth picking up!

Yes, deals, as in there is more than one deal on this site. Deals only available at one store can still be hot - the op says what store its at, the store has a catchment area of tens of thousands (at a conservative estimate), this will help someone who reads this and is hot.

Awsome I live in bedminster and I will be going down to pick up the 360 version tomorrow, thanks jimbob!

why is the game just randomly situated infront of two nintendo ds games? looks like its just been sat there to get the price in.

i was thinking that it was alittle weird it wasn't maybe close to afew other games for ps3 or xbox... ive saw a stand in wilko's before and the games are usualy placed next to other similar games for the sam console eg. xbox360 games one shelf... below ps3 shelf ect but i dunno maybe it was remaining stock and so to clear out their stock to make room for more they mix matched afew games all on one shelf marked as sale or clearance items

Why should they be ashamed? This game is over 2 years old and has sold/been reviewed really well. The first game is one of my all-time favourites and I really enjoyed the second, despite its downfalls (minimal evolution since the first, some poor voice acting etc) but it is excellent as a stand-alone game. It was always going to be a struggle to match/out-do the first, but i think they did a good job.

Amazing bargain - I thought this held up really well compared to the first, great to be able to wield weapons and powers at the same time without having to switch between one or the other (which I think the 1st one forced you to do?)

Was in Wilkinsons earlier, didn't even realise they sold games :L

has anyone acutally bought the game for £2? Because my hot deal sense are tingling and this looks well dogy could be one of those fake deals again

What other games did you see there jimbob? If there are any good titles i may make the trek tomorrow....

I would like to point out that this game isn't randomly sat in front of 2 ds games: I put it there to take the picture and get the sign in the picture whilst being as sneaky as possible because the staff were staring at me

Nah was nothing else there apart from several copies of stormrise on ps3, and about 50 copies of "high school musical sing it" on all formats. There was atleast 3 more copies of Bioshock 2 on each format.

It's always been £3-£4. It only got cheaper by around a measly 50p.

Really? On PSN it was £6.69ish, now it is £3.69. Check for yourself.


And I just completed Bioshock 2. Fantastic, so frantic on hard difficulty!

Why would I lie about buying the game for £2? So that I can get a virtual pat on the back from people I've never met before? I just want to tell other people about a good deal because they do the same for me.

Well, that's odd. The first game's ending was TERRIBLE. At least the sequel had a boss battle and 'closure'.

Not sure it was really 2K's fault. Irrational made one and 2K Marin made 2. I'd have been pretty certain that 2K went to Irrational first and asked them to make the sequel.
