Unboxing the BioShock 2 Special Edition

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 42 comments

I was a planning on getting that uber edition, but it simply doesn't agree with my decor.

BioShock 2 launches next week, giving gamers another hit from one of the best first-person shooter sleeper releases of the previous decade.

Just as 2K Games did for the first release, there will be special edition release for this game. It won't come with a Big Daddy statue this time (probably because the first one caused so many headaches with the broken Big Daddy limbs), but the new one comes in a gorgeous big box with plenty of fanfare inside.

Check out the unboxing of the Games for Windows version, along with the pre-rendered-filled launch trailer.

    I don't know game just didn't interest me, played it for like a half hour and I got really bored. Play something worth while like Mass Effect 2

    I wonder why is it that movies cost more to make than games but games cost many times more money.

    the crap in that box is not worth what there going to charge for it. all special edition games are like this, they nearly double the price and add probably $1-2 worth of additional stuff.

    If game companies want to sell more games and make more money, lower the price to around what it would cost to buy a movie, you will make less per copy sold but at the end of the day, you would have made more money. would you rather have 5000 people buy your game at $60 or 500000 buy it at around $10-20?

    It looks high quality...

    ... It just isn't what I wanted. As an FPSer, I doubt many people will like it.

    That would require marketing people to know economics.

    It also requires an understanding in manufacturing. Which doesn't seem you have.

    You people really thing you're smarter then all game companies?.. Seriously get over yourselves.

    "I wonder why is it that movies cost more to make than games but games cost many times more money."

    Because games dont generally sell in the multi millions catagory.
