- As if we wanted Bioshock Infinite any sooner, the two special editions roll out. Priced at $79.99 and $149.99, the The Premium & Ultimate Songbird (above) limited editions for Bioshock the third is raking us in further into pre-order. Irrational Games gives us a big reason to spend more than $60 on a single player experience. Goodness, for $20 more you get about five additional pieces of swag. Sure some you won’t ever use, or you may just store away in the closet, but it might just nudge a bunch of people off the edge.
Both editions contain a 64 page art book of the flying city of Columbia, propaganda for the “Devil’s Kiss Vigor” in the form of a 5X7 inch lithograph (example), Murder of Crows bottle Keychain, and to top it all off is a code to download the soundtrack. Cue the inanimate corpse of Billy Mays because that’s not all people! System specific console content are three power ups, Bioshock Infinite costumes for Booker and Elizabeth (360), and themes (PS3, PC). That’s all just for the Premium edition, starting at $79.99, while the 9.75 inch statue you see above is retailing for $149.99 with everything else included.
I’m torn, I failed to pick up the Borderlands 2 ultimate vault hunter pack, a game and series I absolutely adore. I will probably skip anything Halo 4 is doing, another series I get giddy about. However with Bioshock Infinite’s massive statue, I’m just imagining myself looking at that menacing mechanical bird. As the bird stares down at me, judging me, threatening me, ready to attack my skull! I want it.
