    Help decide what goes in the BioShock Limited Edition

    Yesterday, I asked people to sign an online petition asking 2K for a Limited Edition of BioShock. We needed 5000 signatures for them to agree.

    We made that number in about 6 hours, pretty much blowing my mind. We’re up around 14000 signatures right now, and still climbing.

    So, now, we need to decide what should go IN this Limited Edition. I’ve set up an official poll on http://www.cultofrapture.com. And yes, 2K will actually use these results to decide what goes in the Limited Edition box.

    Please vote!

    And yes. The Limited Edition will be for BOTH the 360 and the PC.

    A mini Big Daddy figurene, like Doom 3.

    Or maybe some type of postcard advertising Rapture.

    Well, the Big Daddy figurine seems to be the favorite in the poll. I want everything on the list, actually. Don't make me choose.
    I'm going with "Making of" DVD.

    What would really be cool is an alternate version of the game with easter eggs like Thief Gold was.

    What's 'Upgraded packaging' anyway?

    A t-shirt with the rapture logo would be much appreciated. Also, wouldn't mind being surprised by finding your phone number inside my copy of the Collector's Edition, Liz.

    The genital enhancing plasmid!

    Alternatively, an issue of a Rapture life-style magazine. Rise of the Dragon (whoever remembers this game) had a little magazine mock-up, complete with ads. I loved that.

    Probably means a tin like Halo 2, fancy fold-out package like Oblivion, a big box like Baldur's Gate 2 etc.

    I guess I'm really in the minority. The Big Daddy figurine is the one thing available on that poll I'd really rather not see and yet is in the lead by far.

    What I'd most like to see -- and what isn't on the poll -- are pamphlets or brochures written and visually composed in the Rapture style as if they were real informational pamphlets available in Rapture.

    Many classic games used to provide such booklets or accompanying materials in the regular packaging. For example, the Ultima games provided cloth maps and detailed backstory materials which were written as if they were documents of the world rather than manuals for a game.

    Homeworld had a fantastic, thick manual with glossy pages which presented backstory as a historical text and provided tactical advice in a kind of story involving commanders in the Homeworld game world.

    Deus Ex provided that simple newspaper insert with headlines circled and "interpreted." It was small and simple but it helped provide you some flavor of the game and made a nice introduction to the sort of world and style of storytelling you were about to experience.

    Rich game world material like this is what I would most like to see in the limited edition release.

    How about a Keyring? If it was for System Shock it could have been the Trioptimum Logo. For Bioshock its

    T-Shirt suxx (i wear M, everything thats bigger is for the bedroom...), or make different Collectors Edition in sizes equal to the Shirt

    Or a DIN A4 colerful manual with everything to know about, but no spoiler. Like the good old times were Manuals were min. 30 pages long

    CLOTH MAP!!!


    serious edit:

    I understand that a cloth map doesn't quite fit the game, but I miss them so. Soundtracks make me absolutely giddy however and anything that fleshes out the world a little more would be splendid. For example, I'd love to see a tongue-in-cheek "Rapture Survival Guide" that would ostensibly be used as a guidebook but ends up being actually somewhat useful.

    Is an art book the same concept as the unlockable art & videos in Chronicles of Riddick: EfBB? (you unlock them by finding cigarette packs throughout the SP game)

    DEFINITELY an Artbook or Making Of CD. I like figurines, but they don't hold nearly so much value to me as the prior to. I love seeing the creative inspirations and begginings of a project such as this. Especially when Bioshock has such a beautifully inspired setting.

    Check out the art book from Dreamfall Limited Edition if you haven't already. It's the best DVD-case-sized art book I've seen.

    It would be cool, but I like the sound of a soundtrack or making of DVD better.

    I love soundtracks, so that got my vote. Disappointed to see people going ga-ga for a Big Daddy figurine. They'd have to be cast iron awesomeness before I'd go for that.

    But yeah, soundtrack or art book/signed print are the coolest, plus I can only reiterate Ig and state that a cool rusted tin box with an awesome map of Rapture is the way to go, coupled with some fake leaflet/pamphlet type stuff.

    I'm a fan of the artbook. I love flipping through those kinds of things. A figurine, I mean unless it's a keychain, it's just going to sit there, I think ... although granted it would still be kind of cool to have, though.

    Also: "Art print with team's signatures 4%" ... Sorry, guys. I guess all the glory comes with knowing you made a classic that a lot of people will remember for a long time to come. I hope we get the see the team in the ending credits, though.

    Me too, it was nice to see the devs at the end of System Shock 2.

    A map of Rapture.
    An audio book of Atlas Shrugged on DVD.
    A poster of big Daddy/ Little Sister.
    A music DVD from the game.
