I saw both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions today at Best Buy and the 360 version comes in a nice box (looked similar the the Mass Effect collection) while the PS3 version comes in the standard plastic case. Have no idea how many discs either have as I did not purchase a copy.

I picked up a 360 copy today at BB, granted I had to drive about 32mi out of my way to get it, but I am a big fan, and had to have the extra content for the first game.

The 360 copy is 4 discs(2 for the games and 2 for the DLC's)

For those who have picked this up, is the gallery feature an actual area you can navigate within the 3d context of the game world or just a slide show?

That might sound like a weird question, but the wording made it sound like something you could virtually walk through and explore, as opposed to the much cheaper option of throwing together a slide show.

So, it comes in a new packaging? Hmmm, I don't know if I should pick it up...

I'm out. Very tempting but own both games and some of the DLC already. Running low on credits and games worth trading in, need to save for the $20 per-order bonus games from BB.

Not surprising since its console debut was on the 360. Guess they want to hit those players with a nostalgia flashback, with a more "complete" package aesthetically.



All I have to say is, "the last of us"...

Does the PS3 DLC come as a code?

I never bought the BS1 DLC and I figured I might give it a try if ir has seperate codes.

I paid retail for the BS2 and I regret it

Here are some pics for those interested. Everything is on disc, no codes to enter. Sorry they are so big, took them from 2K's Facebook page.

It sucks that they skimped on the ps3 version. Now I'm not as tempted as I was. Might just end up buying the games used.

Man, why does the :ps3: version have to look so...plain? I decided to play the series on that system after enjoying the original so much on :ps3:, and I already have Bioshock Infinite preordered for :ps3:...*sigh*

I'm guessing it doesn't look as cool for the PS3, because the 360 required a bigger case to hold all the extra disks and the PS3 can fit more content on Blu-rays. So they just tossed it in a regular case.

Waiting for the magic $20 price point, since I already own BioShock and have played 2 before, but it's a great deal for those who have neither.

In a perfect world, they would add the PS3's new game plus to Bioshock 1 on the Xbox.

For some reason GameStop.com says it doesn't release until the 1/22/13. Kinda weird that they didn't get them the same time as everyone else.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Four discs don't fit in a regular x360 case.

I had to ask for it at Best Buy. Surprised and happy they put some effort in the packaging (for 360 at least).

I may take this stupid game that I can't play worth a damn called FIFA 13, and trade it in towards this. I never really gave the first Bioshock a chance before getting rid of it, but I loved the hell out of Bioshock 2.

Here's a quick PS3 unboxing to contrast the dull 360 version.

Pretty sure it's the same game. No changes. Meaning that if the original 360 games were better, then it's the same on this package.

LOL! So amusing to see people happy about having to install several discs rather than just one. External art appears the same. Pack-ins are the same. Only difference is internal slipcover, and the fact that this will take up more space on your shelf. Having extra real estate due to outdated media isn't exactly a good thing. But whatever makes folks happy.

I guess if they put out a PC edition on 40 floppies, people will cancel their console orders so they can get the super-cool jumbo box! :applause:
