WOAH! I just looked at the back of the box, do you really need 22 GB of hard drive space to install everything?

Can confirm it's this price at the Durham, NC Target store. One copy left.

It's quite a bit of DLC. Minimum requirement is 5 GB with just the basic install.

Score! Thanks to the DCIP, a "We don't have it" quickly turned into a "TD!" 3rd time already in 2013 a CS rep said "Wow..." after scanning something I found on CAG!

Thanks team!

You guys think I can price match the $20 PS3 version to get the 360 version for $20? Or they wont do it?

unfortunately I can confirm this. Playing it right now on the PS3 and it eats up some serious space. But at least the music that plays while you install Bioshock one is excellent.

Thanks for the DCPI! I verified they had it in stock by manually entering it into one of the price check machines then asked a rep for it. He got one from the stockroom with no hassle.

Just a heads up. bioshock will take 10 minutes or so to install. bioshock 2 will take closer to 45.

It's because you install BS2 to the HDD don't know why they didn't just make it playable off the disc.

Is the :ps3: DLC a separate on-disc install, or is it integrated directly into the game install? (for example, I already have Bioshock 2 installed previously, wondering if there will be any issues buying a copy a this for the DLC.)

Thanks!

Yup, separate on-disc install. Inserting the disc installs the first game only. The second game, and every piece of DLC is a separate, manual install. So you should be fine.

To clarify you insert the disc 2 icons pop up on the XMB one is Bioshock and the other icon is the installs for BS2 and all the extra DLC. Also I just went through the small museum level and if your a Bioshock fan you're going to love it very cool.

Thanks guys. I can't believe you have to install Bioshock 2 entirely. Wow after looking at the packaging differences and now this, I see why there was an immediate price drop lol

It's an error, not a price drop. Target is the only store doing it, and most of them don't even have it on the shelf yet. We're all having them pull these from the dark recesses of the stockroom. They just bungled it.

I had to look at the 360 package in person to understand the insane fascination with it. I still don't see it. It's slightly fatter than a regular case to accommodate that pile of DVD's. Doesn't look any fancier. Even when opened it's just an extra sleeve.

I find this particularly funny since I was on another forum listening to comments about the new game, BioShock Infinite. Apparently, the PC version is going to include huge texture packs that would choke the consoles, so they are issuing the game on 3 DVD's. Pretty much every commenter looked down their nose at physical media and bragged about how they all use the cloud, steam, etc. But here we have people talking about how awesome it is to have four discs instead of one blu-ray? Go figure. \\:D/

I do not think it is the extra discs or media choice the people are talking about, just the physical artwork you get when purchasing the 360 version. I prefer metal cases others may like the unique artwork, others prefer neither and like more space in the real world and less on their systems hard drive.

Individual flavor preference. Gotta say though, the art of the Little Sister's hand reaching out to the Big Brother looks cool.

I agree and would have gotten the XBOX version, but cheaper is cheaper and since I already own 1 and 2 collectors editions for the XBOX I bought the PS3 Version.

And that 20+ GB HD install on the PS3 is another factor as it isn't like it improves the performance and quality over the 360 playing straight from the disc. At least it didn't when they were mandatory installs for each game's separate release before as Lens of Truth and other sites gave the 360 the decisive edge. It doesn't mean the PS3 is not an amazing experience, but if you want the best experience barring costs, this is something else that leans towards the 360 besides the special case/cover. With that in mind, I still got it for both systems. :)

I had no idea this website existed. You rock, thank you for the information. Been a gamer my whole life and have two small sons (6&8) so we have most of the systems. Being able to compare this way is awesome.

No problem Shrowd and thank you for the compliment. Lens of Truth doesn't compare every single major AAA release and have changed the way they analyze between consoles, but it is a good reference source when they do update. I love the sites that provide concrete stats to declare a winner and not just speculate.

It may take a few weeks after the game is released to give their analysis though. Also, they have sort of taken the high ground and not declare a winner and let the readers vote on who they think should win based off of their research.

Another one I use is the digital foundry for Eurogamer.net as they do their own comparison called face-off. Here is how they did a comparison for Devil May Cry between the 360 and PS3 and they will also take into account the PC or Wii U when applicable. Enjoy!

I second Digital Foundry for face-offs. I also like Lens of Truth, but Digital Foundry tends to be more in depth, so I go with them more often.

Got a copy from Target today, and it was the same situation that many have said: I had to ask for it because copies were in the stockroom.

Since I was able to PM Target's $29.99 price for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale at Best Buy, though, I think I'll go to Target, take a picture of the price appearing on the price-check machine, return the copy of Bioshock URE, then price-match at BBY since I have so much credit there.
