Do you guys see this thing being common? I love video game statues, but I don't want to pay $150 for something right now to see it be $80 a month from now.



Wont be a month, mayyyybe, by Black Friday, I see $10-20 discount increments.

If anyone wants one now I'd say hit up ebay, alot of the auctions are going around $130 or so. One guy from Miami has a bunch listed for xbox 360 and they are going for that price with free shipping, unless he got these off the back of a truck he's losing a good amount of money.

I was thinking about it but I'm going to pass, even at $130 that's a nice day trip somewhere for my wife and I instead of some trinkets. That also leaves one in the system for you all to get. Never say I didn't help any of you.

I'm not going to lie, I'm really glad it came back in stock. The reviews have been phenomenal and Irrational seems to be such great people. I'll definitely support this game. Plus the statue will look amazing hovering over my desk. So good!



Hovering over your desk?? Its the size of a paper weight lmaoo

It's a nice CE but I wouldn't pay $150 for it. To each their own.

Historically speaking, from other bioshock games, it will drop like a rock.

I saw the unboxing video, it is, a lot smaller shorter than one would expect, at least looks a lot shorter than the Skyrim statue.

Was BioShock 1's CE super cheap a while after release? Because it's really expensive now, where as 2's released at $100 and dropped to like $20 two months after, and holds at about $40 now.

Nope. Bioshock 1 CE sold out launch day and never was restocked. I recall seeing it for sale on Ebay the week after release at 2-3X MSRP and it only went up from there.

Bioshock 1's CE was a gamble because it was a new IP, so it had a limited production. On top of that, it had one of the better collectibles of any CE.

So if a game is released and no one talks about it does it exist?

In line picking up my Infinite and the guy in front of me was getting Army of Two: Devils Cartel. Not one review yet for that game. I am going to guess it sucks.

The game is fantastic ... looks great on PC ... if anyone has any doubts about which version to pick up, I'd say go with PC. I'd also advise doing a digital purchase now and waiting for a price drop on this version later ... I think this will be a great set to get but I predict it's down to $100 or less in a few months and possibly even lower as time goes on.

The first two was all right. Great for mindless, action packed, casual local co op.

The Bioshock 1 CE is still very expensive

The Bioshock 2 CE became very cheap

I'm guessing this CE, in the long run, will end up somewhere in between.

Bioshock doesn't seem to lessen in value (at least not normally). I took in a few games to gamestop recently (no-infinite-hype-then) and the only ones of actual value WERE Bio 1&2, go figure.

Great games, excited about Infinite but waiting for it to pop up on CAG for $40 (Got BL2 for $35 and H4 for $40 here thanks to you guys!!):P

If I had the money though I'd be getting this, looks awesome!

Now the original Bioshock CE was something else. A figure, making of DVD, and soundtrack for only $10 more. Not like today where those same items would result in a CE being priced $40 more.

Currently playing: 

:wiiu: Xenoblade X (2nd try) - :-k 

:pc: The Witcher - :)

In all fairness, the soundtrack was a 3 song sampler (with cool vinyl artwork).

The figure was the big draw for me. Not to mention the free 2nd figure and art book to make up for the first figure being damaged (but fixable).

Pre-ordered one of these up in December with BB credit, plan on it keeping it sealed regardless of value. Have the first two CE's and this will look nice in the collection.

You're right, now these things cost almost as much as your damn game console.


yea the CE thing has gotten out of hand. seems like every damn game has a 100 dollar more CE these days.

This won't be mass produced like Bioshock 2's CE was. Ken Lavine said that once it's gone, it's gone.

My feeling is that this may drop another $20-30 bucks if at all - before it disappears completely.

If you compare the quantity to what the OP listed since yesterday, amazon has sold half of them already.
