    I guess we can thank Toys 'R' Us for breaking street date and opening the floodgates, as it were. Still haven't gotten the call for my pre-order, though.

    As far as I'm hearing it's not a call-up pre-orders sort of break of street date but basically if you rock into a store and ask, they're handing it over pretty much everywhere.

    I sure hope so, it would be such a great compensation for the lack of a PC demo.

    Yaaarg, damn Yanks!

    We still have to wait till the 24th over here :'(

    Although Gamestation are doing a midnight opening in the UK to sell the Xbox 360 Elite, so crazy people could go then!

    Don't tempt me!

    I wonder if the PC version has been cracked yet. You have to validate online so it must be crack proof! Otherwise why would they bother annoying those without the net?
    Edit: Looks like my sarcasm was wrong their, they actually have managed to make the PC crack proof (at least for now). Good work Irrational


    In other news, I just read preview of Crysis over at bit-tech, sounds a bit rubbish really. So more game of the year awards for Bioshock!

    Well, the PC version isn't out yet, so it can't be cracked.

    I hope the demo will come soon...

    Heh, 2k's forum has 164 pages on a thread about this in just over a hour. It keeps crashing the whole forum!

    On another note, looks like even the pirated xbox version is out before the pc version, wonder if they will release another art book to pacify us?

    yeah, what a bummer. now pc gamers don't even get to pirate them first
    and 2k, if you are intelligent, open the floodgates because you don't want your impatient xbox kiddies to dl the pirate version !!!!!

    Heh, how ironic. Publishers always love to point the finger of blame at piracy on PC games as a reason for not supporting the PC platform, but look at how fast the 360 version has been pirated.

    I dont think they´re in trouble. Any game that comes out for the 360 is pirated in a matter of hours. However, if the game is good it sells and Bioshock is probably a masterpiece so I´m sure it´s gonna sell a loooooot. I hope so.

    I'm hugely pissed the warez community has it,and the paying customers dont.

    I slapped down full price for two copies (one is a CE) at EB in
    the spring !! Both reciepts are in my wallet as I type this ! I have spent a lot of scratch to play this game in all its glory.

    Have they started selling the PC version aswell or is Toys R Us only selling the 360 version?

    I'm thinking about asking my mate in US to buy and send it from there to Sweden..

    You have to mod the hell out of your X-Box 360 to play it though, don't you?

    If so, then this version being pirated isn't nearly as bad as the PC version. I'm sure it's a lot easier to get around one-time internet activation.

    It's easier to "pirate" an Xbox360 copy than to do it with an PC version.

    Thanks, my mistake. It wasn't when I preordered a couple of months ago. Actually, amazon.co.uk is now selling the limited and the standard edition at the same price (!).

Additionally, a TV advertisement for BioShock prematurely ran that incorrectly indicated that the game was available for purchase. 2K Games has reached out to our retail partners and is maintaining the street date of August 21st in North America and August 24th in Europe, when BioShock will be available at retailers. 2K Games is appreciative of the gamer excitement and critical acclaim leading up to the title’s launch.
    And there you have it.

    (this is in a sticky thread @ 2K forums, but I'm not sure if it's kosher to link to other gaming forums here.)
