Not limited, not rare. These have been available for over a year. I have no idea how they're selling them as a run of 35 when each print is a run of 400.

The Irrational Games store put up three lithos for Bioshock Infinite--I believe these are similar to the covers that were distributed for Game Informer. They are available individually, but they are also releasing them as a limited edition, signed trio set. They are 11 x 14 / 100# cougar natural cover.

According to the website, the signed sets are limited to 100 and are hand-numbered, signed by Ken Levine and Robb Waters and include a certificate of authenticity.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

The framed litho also looks great--it is also signed by Levine and hand-numbered:

I ordered the trio and the framed litho--I think this game will be GOTY-fantastic and a signature from its creator is worth the moolah.

It's limited to 100. There's no way they won't go up in value unless the game tanks which is doubtful

Unfortunately this set is a scam. I contacted 2K questioning them on the 'limited edition' prints. The signed versions are the same ones sold without signature. They are not unique or 'limited' whatsoever.

I thought that was pretty obvious. They are unique and limited because they only signed and hand-numbered 100 of them.

A total ripoff especially given the fact that they are only 11x14 and the open editions are identical to the limited editions. Such a shame too as I would have liked to buy some Bioshock Infinite Lithographs. As is, I am not given them a dime of my money.

A scam implies they are being deceitful about something...if you read the descriptors of the lithos and look at the stock images used, it's pretty obvious that they are the same ones and are being advertised as such.

The fact that they are signed / numbered is exactly what makes them limited. An autographed baseball card is worth way more than the same baseball card without the athlete's signature--same concept.

Sorry but this is absolutely 100% incorrect. In order to have separate editions, there has to be a distuinguishable difference between the prints, besides the signature and number. Most companies make small changes, either to the border or the color of the print. Releasing an open edition print that is 100% identical to the limited edition print is a clear violation of the limited edition. The signature and number alone do not distiguish limited editions from open editions.

There have actually been laws enacted in many states that actually protect consumers against this very thing. Unfortunately the value of the print usually has to be at least $100 in order to be able to bring suit againt the producer of the print.

Aspen comics is a perfect example for releasing multiple editions for identical images. They have been releasing Michael Turner prints for the last 10+ years and they have both normal convention prints that they sell at the comic con's and online prints (OP prints) that they sell at the Aspen store. Aspen uses identical images for both the OP prints and the convention prints but they are different editions as the OP print has a black border running around the print and actually has an "OP print" graphic at the bottom of the print. While the images are identical, the two are easily distunagishable from one another.

Bottom line - Irrational games has clearly violated thier limited edition prints for Bioshock Infinite as the open edition prints are identical to the limited edition prints. What makes this sort of thing so much worse is that all it would have taken is some small change to the limited edition to make it legitmate. They are either lazy or have no understanding of this market. Either way, its simply inexcusable.

By the way, an autographed baseball card is not a limited edition baseball card, its just a signed baseball card. People who say its the signature that makes them limited have absolutely no understanding of the limited edition print market.

my lord some people just love to whine about shit.

JUST DON'T BUY IT.

The ME2 lithos had signed and unsigned. I wanted signed so I paid more for it. Same concept here.

And some people love to pretend they know what they are talking about when they CLEARLY dont. And for the record, I am not buying them. I wouldnt touch them with a 10 foot pole. Not sure what that has to do with anything. This is a lithograph thread and some people in here might not understand the limited edition print market and thus might not realize those prints are not limited edition prints. You obvioulsly dont. Some people may actually find that information useful. Sorry but when I see clear disinformation being spread about one of my favorite hobbies....well, I speak up, especially when its on one of my favorite websites. If you dont like it than put me on ignore or dont read my posts. Its really that simple. Trust me, I have no problem with it whatsoever.

Oh, Bioware did it too so it must be ok, lol. I didnt realize Bioware was the guage for what is acceptable in the limited edition print market. The internet is a wonderful tool. Try using it and you might actually learn something. There are literally thousands of different websites out there where you can learn what really distingushes a limited edition print from an open edition print. Or you can continue to wrongfully believe that its the signature that makes a limited edition print. It really doesnt matter to me one way or the other. I was merely correcting an inaccurate statement. What you do with that information is totally up to you.

And by the way, I hate to rain on your parade but "my lord some people just love to whine about shit" is in itself whining. Hypocrites, gotta love em, lol.

I am not really worried about the value of them. Yeah it's nice if they are worth something if we ever want to sell them down the line but the bottom line is we buy these things because we want them.

Like my ME2 The Team lithograph, I have no intention of selling the lithographs I buy. I think these Bioshock Infinite lithographs are pretty damn cool but at the same time they are more than what I spent on my ME2 Team lithograph which is a bit outrageous since I think that one is priceless. Granted they say these are limited to 100 prints while the ME ones were 500, I think they could have been a bit more reasonable.

Might eventually buy the 65 dollar set but no need for the signed one at all. Especially at that price. (Plus I already got the gigantic Game Informer cover poster and that "The Patriot Has Nothing to Fear" poster signed by Ken at NYCC). Just want a clean version of the Elizabeth/Songbird one really.

I'm really not into the whole "I signed x number of these so therefore it is a limited edition" thing...especially with the premium that is charged for that. The Valve store did the same thing - I ended up getting most of their unsigned lithos for between 10 and 25 while the signed ones were still not selling out at 100. I just want the cool art for my walls :D.

There was some Gallery 1988 limited stuff included in there at one point when they were housed on Alice2Store.com.

Here's pics of a few of them..I believe they were up around June 2011 and they added a few over time.

Somewhere between 25-40 I think? I bought it right when it came out so I really don't remember. I know they released a much smaller colored signed version for about 100 at one point.
