Totally spaced that I had the Industrial Revolution code emailed to me long ago from amazon. Finally redeemed it today :wall:

Can't wait for this to come out. Amazon sadly has no release date shipping for the songbird edition :cry:. Thankfully though my best friend is letting me play his copy until I get mine since he is still playing God of War Ascension. :)

With games like this, I avoid trailers, clips, and essentially any specific info. I can't wait to experience this game next week.

Hopefully Amazon gets my Songbird edition on release date, even though it seems scheduled for 2 Day delivery.

Well technically Amazon doesn't have "release date shipping" anymore. I know with Prime, you select 2 day shipping and it arrives release day. I don't know about non-prime people.

Can someone tell me why I'd want the ultimate songbird edition over the premium? I have both preordered but I'm really not seeing the added 70 dollar value here.

Sorry I am sure this has been answered numerous times but I will ask anyway.

Can I pick this game up and play it as a stand alone title or will I be lost because I didn't play the first two games yet?

Barring some surprise twist, there's no story connection to the other BioShock games.

Any other reviews floating around other than IGN?

Where is everyone making their purchase, I opted to go with Best Buy since I have $45 in certificates to use

IGN has the only review out because of the embargo.


So according to Amazon CS, they won't get the premium editions early enough to ship them for release date arrival

That was quite a review. Sessler seemed really passionate about how great the game is. I was kind of surprised that he didn't just flat out call it the best game ever made at the end of the review.

Any differences between the PS3 and 360 version? I went with the 360 since I like the controller better, but I always want the "best" version, which is subjective.

Won't know until other sites do comparisons later in the week but the PS3 version has Bioshock 1 on the disc.

Mine's Shipping Soon as well. Really hope it doesn't take too long. I was presented with Two Day Shipping as the only release day promise. Hoping it holds up.

If you read the customer discussions on the bottom of the premium/song bird edition pages on Amazon, many people said they contacted Amazon about that, and Amazon said that they would not be getting their shipments in early enough to make release date shipping with the premium or song bird editions. I guess in theory if they got them this morning and already shipped out the 1 day shipping packages then maybe those people will get them, but I'm guessing people with 2 day shipping will get it Wednesday or Thursday. The normal editions of the game had shipping that would get the game to you by Tuesday if you noticed, but not the other two.

I had a premium edition on Amazon but I ended up canceling and ordering a songbird edition from Irrational games on Sunday. It shipped out a few minutes ago so I'll probably get it Wednesday.

Any differences between the PS3 and 360 version? I went with the 360 since I like the controller better, but I always want the "best" version, which is subjective.


From what I've seen its pretty much PC > 360/PS3 for graphics but otherwise no difference has really been mentioned. I'm going with the 360 because of the controller and its just my preferred console


And Amazon has the songbird edition in stock again....fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
Apparently someone in the collectors edition thread is receiving their sb edition from Amazon tomorrow so there may be hope for you guys

Glad I stopped by GameStop today to pick up Batman:AC GOTY. I was planning on doing the buy the game, guide and season pass and get $20 off. I asked the guy if they had plenty of guides in stock and he said nope not with the deal. He checked and there were only a few left I guess. Maybe he was putting my on but I am pretty sure he was not since I started by saying I wanted to do the deal. It is not a bad deal. The guide (SE) is $21.99 but with a PUR card you get 20% off when you buy guides and game together so the guide is $17.59 + $19.99 for the Season Pass - $20 for the promo making the Season pass essentially $17.58. I got the Premium edition. Normally I am not big on collectibles but that keychain needs to be mine. The handyman game piece is also a little smaller than I expected. Might end up trying to sell the art book and lithograph to make back the $20.

why didn't you purchase the songbird editions? It seems you are a big fan of the series

I am definitely a fan but I have never been into collectibles much. The statue is pretty nice but I could not justify the extra $70 just for the statue. I am a pretty big cheap ass so even spending almost $100 is big for me. :lol:

I plan on doing the same for The Last of Us because the Survival Edition has a full size artbook for $20 more and I see value in that I guess.

Otherwise, I usually nickel and dime my way to cheap games.

Just got back from my midnight at GS. There were about 50-60 people. In and out fast. Two things that were disappointing.

1. Since I pre-ordered so long ago I never received my Industrial Revolution code and it did not show up on my final receipt. GS employee said there was nothing really he could do since the register does those things automatically.

2. The $20 off for getting the game, guide and pass worked great but I only ended up with a free guide and nothing else off of the pass. I guess the $20 and the 20% discount only apply to the guide and since the SE guide was $21.99 it could only discount a max of $21.99. IF there was a LE guide available then it would have only cost $9.52 since it would have been 0.20 x $36.99-$20.

The funniest thing about the pick up was the guy in front of me was getting the PS3 copy of the new Army of Two. I forgot it was even releasing today.
