Heading back to Rapture is coming to us pretty fast as BioShock 2 is set to release February 9th 2010.
With all big release nowadays it seems we have our share of Collectors Edition to chose from and BioShock 2 will not be left out as the BioShock 2 Collectors Edition has been revealed and may include somethings the younglings may not what they are or what they do. First find below what will be included in the Collectors Edition:
- BioShock 2
- Vinyl 180g LP featuring the orchestral score from the original BioShock
- CD containing the BioShock 2 orchestral score
- A 164 page 8″x11″ hardbound artbook chock full of developer commentary
- Three posters featuring vintage ads from Rapture (rolled)
Not that great of a Collectors Edition if you ask me. The prices for the Collectors Edition do vary. The PC version will set you back $89.99 and the PS3 and the Xbox 360 edition will set you back $99.99. Now for the explanation I promised. You may see the second item and say to yourself what is a vinyl 180g LP? Well a long long time ago that is what music was recorded on and required the use of a phonograph or more commonly called a record player to play said recorded music.
All kidding aside unless you are a hardcore fan of BioShock I really don’t see the sense of this Collectors Edition. For the extra $40 I would like to see something a little more than a book and some posters thrown in for good measure. Sure it has the CD for the orchestral score, but you will probably be able to download that from your favorite music download site for next to nothing, if you where even interested in such a thing.
