While the holiday season is in the midst of swamping us with games, one (initial) date has come and gone without too much fanfare. Let this fact roll around your mind for a few minutes:BioShock Infinite
was supposed to be released on Tuesday/Tomorrow.
Fortunately for gamers, Irrational bumped back the game to this winter, giving us more time to enjoy the rest of the holiday bounty. Today, in an attempt to soothe the savage beast of gamers angered by the delay, they have finally revealed the details on two different Collector's Editions of their upcoming shooter.
The first edition is the Premium Edition which is set to include the following:
* a 64 page mini-edition Art of Columbia art book
* a 25mm resin-cast Handyman figure which ties in to the upcoming BioShock Infinite
* a 5x7 inch lithograph depicting propaganda for Devil's Kiss vigor
* a Murder of Crows replica bottle keychain
* the digital soundtrack
* three exclusive in-game power-ups
* exclusive Booker and Elizabeth costumes
The Ultimate Songbird Edition is set to include all of the previously mentioned swag and one big addition: a 9.75 inch statue of Songbird designed by Irrational's concept artist Robb Waters.
Now I know what you're all thinking:SHOW ME THESE THINGS, NOW, obj!
Even though you didn't say, "Would you kindly," I'm more than happy to oblige.
And now we get to the sticking point, the sticker price. The Premium Edition will cost you $79.99 and the Ultimate Songbird Edition will run you $149.99. You can set up your pre-orders through many retailers (starting on October 22nd) on the BioShock Infinite official site
You may now resume throwing money at the screen, but you won't be able to get your hands on either of these copies until BioShock Infinite
drops on February 26th, 2013.
