Sad that this March's BioShock Infinite won't be set in Rapture? You'll get a chance to re-visit the beautiful underwater city of the first two BioShock games with the newly announced Ultimate Rapture edition, which will boast an all-new Museum of Orphaned Concepts filled with concept art and character designs that weren't used for Irrational's hit franchise. The new bundle comes out on Jan. 14 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, at a cost of $30. Here's a full rundown of what's inside:

• Museum of Orphaned Concepts: Take a tour of a never-before-seen BioShock museum and view early concept art, character models and more set within the halls of Rapture.
• Plasmids Pack: Includes four additional Plasmids and Gene Tonics—Sonic Boom, EVE Saver, Vending Expert and Machine Buster—for use in BioShock.
• Challenge Rooms Pack: Previously exclusive to PS3™ and now available for Xbox 360 for the first time, the pack tests the player's mettle by requiring them to utilize the skills learned while traversing the halls of Rapture to survive three separate puzzle rooms in BioShock.
• Sinclair Solutions Tester: Contains a number of customization features that allow players to further their character's development in BioShock 2 multiplayer modes and provides a deeper multiplayer experience.
• Rapture Metro: Includes six additional multiplayer maps, an additional multiplayer gameplay mode and a rank increase to level 50 for BioShock 2 multiplayer.
• The Protector Trials: Features frantic combat and fast-paced action designed to push players' mastery of weapons and Plasmids in a BioShock 2 single-player experience spread across six maps.
• Minerva's Den: A substantial narrative experience that puts players in the role Subject Sigma and introduces new characters, locations and mystery to the world of Rapture in BioShock 2. Set in a new environment, Rapture Central Computing, Minerva's Den adds a gripping new storyline to extend the BioShock 2 experience.
• Also included, is an exclusive collectable sticker pack from BioShock Infinite's world of Columbia to get gamers ready for the next chapter in the BioShock universe.

...Well, looks like I'm trading in my copy of Bioshock 2 and picking this up. Thanks for posting the announcement, OP!

Also, there's a listing for "Kill 'Em Kindly" under Bioshock 2's DLC, but it isn't in the description you posted. Is that just another multiplayer DLC?

Collectible Stickers? Count me in!

That being said it is a pretty good value if you really like the franchise although Bioshock 1 and 2 can be found for dirt cheap.

Multiplayer DLC where you only use melee.

I would get this, but with Bioshock 1 being on the Infinite disc for PS3, Bioshock 2 being free for PS+ and dirt cheap to buy, I think I'll pass for now.

I think I'm gonna get this. I love both games quite a bit, and I can keep this sealed for a while and keep playing my regular vanilla copies since I have some of the DLC already.

Wait for Infinite to come out. Prices are always jacked up for the older games after a sequel is released,

I love all the anger in this thread. This was basically outed late last spring and was slated for a late fall release. Even if you do get Bioshock 1 and 2 for free from Infinite and PS Plus you didn't get any of the dlc, which is 35.00 easy if you buy it. This comes with it all + and couple extras, I'll wait a couple weeks and buy it in late Feb so its an easy price match at BB when Infinite comes out and this is inevitably put on sale.
I haven't paid full price for a game since Dec 2005

There's not much anger here at all. You're also valuing the DLC as worth full price, which really only Minerva's Den is, and even that goes on sale a few times a year.

So I presume this actually includes Bioshock 1 & 2? I mean there's no mention of that. It sounds like it's an add-on to your existing game. Not true, right?

I have a 360 but don't own Bioshock 1 or 2 (fail, I know.). Would this be a good deal for a guy looking to get into the series or do new copies run pretty cheap for the standard editions?
