Bioshock 2 with “great” price


(click on the picture to see the deal)

You probably all remember nice hit-game Bioshock that collected many awards and so on. Now it is time for sequel. But like usually, there are no good things without bad things. The good thing is that you can get Bioshock 1 for free, you can give the extra copy to your friend, if you already have one. And there is now multiplayer! Achievements! DLC‘s! And somekinda social networking based on Games for Windows live.

And the bad thing is the price for Europeans, except United Kingdom citizens.

US: $49.99 $44.99 (~32€)
UK: £39.99 £26.99 (2% lower) <- 33% discount not 10% like the others!!!!!
EU: 49,99€ 44,99€ (43% higher)

Fortunately there is chance to buy 4-pack, which makes one game (~34€) be priced equal to US single price 32€.

US: $149.97 $134.97 (~95€)
UK: £89.97 £80.97 (2% lower)
EU: 149,97€ 134,97€ (43% higher)

    This one’s going to include SecuROM as well again. Seems like they haven’t learnt their lesson from the first game.

    I’ll buy the Collector’s Edition in retail :) Much cheaper than on Steam. I loved the first BioShock, so I hope BioShock 2 won’t let me down.

    Well, I buy the first Bioshock one year ago for 5€ on steam, play 3 hours and… leave.
    On which button I must click if the 2 doesn’t interest me? :/ *vote for the 5$ option*

    (but the EU price is better than zavvi or :))

    aw.. my bad, no need to add anything :p
    only that a price in the US $33.75 and a price in the EU €33.75($47.95)

    Ultimately, l4d2 was similarly priced on pre-purchase. Only difference is that there is no Tier 2 with Bioshock 2.

    You should have added the 4pack price, slay.
    4pack aka 4games for the price of 3!
    23€ per copy if you buy a 4pack in the UK.

    GFWL is another reason (besides unfair price) for me not to buy this game – you know GFWL is not supported in Poland. So i would pay more money for product of lower quality. No thank you, i’ll stick to “try&buy” version :)

    …and there will be DLC’s for the game. If that’s a good thing time will tell.


    BioShock 2 DLC Confirmed
    Friday, 15 January 2010

    Earlier today i sat down for an interview with the Senior Systems Designer from 2K Marin, Kent Hudson. He has confirmed that BioShock 2 will have DLC.

    Absolutely! We are working on pretty aggressive plans for DLC and that’s actually something that is already under-way. That is something that is mostly being run out of the Marin studio because like I said the Australian studio is already ramping up on the next big thing.

    No other details were given other than confirmation that something is being developed. Still exciting though to know we will be getting more BioShock goodness after it has been released. Keep any eye out for the full interview soon.
