Just picked this up myself, saw about 6 360 copies and 3 PS3 copies. Damn good price for all the stuff you get with it, so if you're feeling lucky and want this check your local walmart. Working there, I know they are SUPPOSED to be universally clearanced. Sorry if this is a repost or anything.

I just opened up my copy that I got earlier last year. Love the quality of everything included. I got mine for $19.99 back then from TRU, but $30 is also a steal for it. Hell even $50 would be. Now I have to figure out where to display it..

Worth it for the art book alone.

In a related note, this thread has inspired me to finally buy the frames for the 3 posters that come with it.

I would like to do that on my lunch but I don't know the measurements, so, would any CAG'r kindly who is at home with their edition tell me the size?

Much obliged

I saw this today as well. the outsides are beat all to hell but $30 seems like a good price. I never played the first Bioshock so this is wasted on me.

I saw one at my wal-mart but it looked like a garbage truck drove over it.

The beat-up copy at my Walmart was still priced at ~$60, next to all three of the :360: Burger King games, each "clearance" priced at $8 a pop. :roll:

Bought a PS3 version at Target a couple of months back for about $18 and like wal-mart, the outside cardboard was a tattered mess. The box holding the contents appear sturdy at least.

great deal for what you get in the package. But these aren't ever gonna be worth anything if you're looking to flip. Why didn't this game sell well again?

The posters are 11'' by 14''. ;) Speaking of Walmart, I think they've got frames that are like $5.

I seen it @ BB on clearance for $35 sure it's more but if you can't find it for the $30 @ walmart BB does give the gamers points on top of the reward zone points.

My Walmart has never dropped this past the ~$50 price range. I check every other time I am there though, even though I bought a copy of just the game at Blockbuster for $7.50.
The 360 versions at my store look to be in good shape but the sole PS3 copy has an anti-theft device on it, the black circle with the four cords coming off of it. The cables have dug into the box because they put it on too tight and it has ruined it.

Dangit! I just passed up on this deal since I figured that the SE goodies kinda stunk. Now I'll have to drive another 30 minutes back to that Wal-mart to see if they have it. If they do, I want it.

Thanks OP I picked this up on the way home. Ive been eying this up for the last couple of months at $50. All the ones at my store were in OK condition. The edges of the cardboard were a little banged up but not terrible.

Now if they mark the Batman CE down (still $50) Ill pick that up to

Just picked one up. I checked online and the website said it was OOS, but the store had 3 copies. Good thing I knew Walmart's site wouldn't have an accurate measure of the stock.
