I would bite if I knew that Bioshock 1 would come with original holographic cover. My friend borrowed my copy and lost it :(

Thanks. I've been thinking about picking up Bioshock 2 for PC for some time. Amazon hiked the price from $10 to $15, but getting Bioshock 1 for $5 more is a better deal anyways. The only reason I haven't bit is that the DRM scares me. It still installs a bunch of DRM-related software right?

If I am going to use a DRM, I'd rather use Steam. Unfortunately, Bioshock 2 alone was something like $30 on steam last time I checked.

That cover came only with the PS3 version, didn't it?

Very tempted to do this and try to return the Bioshock I bought at Target at 7.48, but there's just such a backlog of games for me.

And it doesn't help that I pretty much ruined the story of the first one for myself by watching my roommate play through it.

Bioshock is one of the defining games of the generation, I paid $60 for it and it's sequel and don't regret it. Well, maybe I would have rather paid $40 or less for 2 but it's a steal at this price.

Has anyone actually got this deal to work? I'm trying to purchase the 360 versions as a gift and no promotional discount ever appears on the checkout page.

Also I'm going to go against the grain here and say that that while BioShock 1 is no slouch, 2 is one of th very best games of the generation.

The steam version still has securom as well. They disabled the online check for the first game, but never patched the drm out of game.

Edit: I forgot the second game runs on GFWL which is 15 activations.

Oh well... That's what you get for not buying the game at full retail price. :(

I'll probably buy this tomorrow for the Xbox (don't like all that DRM stuff on the PC version). If the offer will still work.

I just started playing bioshock 1 recently, but have to admit it's not living up to the hype yet for me. Only just got the incinerate ability. But it just seems like a lot of walking around shooting zombies in dark hallways. Maybe it will get better.

Hopefully they don't raise the price of the games. I am really tempted, but the CE of Bioshock 2 is what's keeping me waiting. Think I'll still bite though.

Ew, really? So the steam version is essentially DRM on top of DRM?

Know if it is the same with Fallout 3 GOTY for PC?

Its ridiculous how little respect they treat PC gamers. I'd buy it for xbox/ps3 but the control schemes on many games on PC make it so much more pleasant to play.

They raised the 360 version a few bucks.

Anyone have any idea whether the PS3 Bioshock 1 would be a greatest hits version? This is really tempting, but I don't want a bright red case in my collection.
