Bioshock Infinite Release Date and Collectors Edition Details

Hey there.  FINALLY!!!  A release date for Bioshock: Infinite!  It was supposed to be out early this year... then it was supposed to be late this year and now...  it's February 26, 2013!  I can't wait!  I preordered this bad boy well over a year ago and when it was pushed back I was discouraged.  Good thing I only placed $5 to "hold the game" at that point in time.  There will be 2 collector's editions available for the game:  The Premium Edition and the Song Bird Edition.  Here's what you'll get with the Premium Edition:
  • 3 inch keychain replica of the Murder of Crows vigor bottle
  • Lithograph by Jorge Lacera
  • Resin cast Handyman minature that you can use on the upcoming BioShock Infinite board game
  • 64 page Mini art book
  • Soundtrack download
  • Avatar goods (for Xbox 360) or BioShock Infinite themes (PS3/PC)
  • In game Upgrade Pack
That's a pretty damn good haul if you ask me.  And it's only $80.  I think this is a good buy if you plan on getting upgrades for the game anyways.  Those usually run you about $10 so if you add another $10 that you would have spent anyways, you can get some pretty neat stuff!  Let's be honest here, the majority of us will end up getting the Premium Edition BECAUSE it's $80... but for those of us with extra cash to spend will WANT the Song Bird Edition.  Check out the goods that come with the Song Bird Edition:
  • Everything in the Premium Edition
  • 9.75 inch Songbird statue designed by Robb Waters
How freakin' awesome is that?!?!  The man that visualized Sander Cohen, the Little Sisters, the System Shock cover and the Song Bird itself, DESIGNED THE STATUE!!!  If that's not a Bioshock's fan's wet dream, I don't know what is!!!  The Song Bird Collector's Edition will run you about $150 and it's a pretty steep price for a game...  BUT LOOK AT THAT STATUE!!!  
This is soooooo bad ass!!!!  (Image taken from www.bioshockinfinite.com)
*sigh*  I want... I probably won't get it... but I sooooooo want it.  The collector's editions should be available in most of the retails stores with preorders starting shortly.  They are limited edition so I say you snatch it up before they are gone!  So what are you a huge Bioshock fan?  Are you planning on ponying up your cash for any of the Collector's Editions?  I know I will!  Later!

I've been wanting this game ever since I saw the first trailer for it, so I'm definitely going to get one of these Collector's Editions. For now I'm gonna go ahead and pre-order the Songbird Edition, just in case it actually does turn out to rare (I think most publishers just say that as a marketing tactic, but you never know). Better to be safe than sorry, and I imagine it'll be easier to downgrade to the Premium Edition in the future if I need to rather than upgrade from the Premium Edition to the Songbird Edition.

Hey there Devin. I'm the same boat my friend! I think that's a pretty smart strategy to reserve the Song Bird Edition and then downgrade to the Premium. That is if the retail stores allow it. I'm definitely going to give it a shot, though. That way if extra funds come in, I can still guarantee myself the Song Bird Edition!

This is an interesting Collector's edition. A must have.

Wow, the ultimate songbird edition is expensive, but not as expensive as one of the new itouches!

I cant wait to play this! I think it will be way coolin the air versus in the ocean...The first one was epic and the second one good but this will breath new life into the series

Hey there Natasha. I can't wait for this. I'm a huge fan of both of the games. The multiplayer from part 2 could have used a little more work though, but overall, I loved how the story played out. Infinite should reignite the magic and start anew in the skies and I can't wait to see how that story will tie in with Rapture, if at all.
