X-Play Retailers

You hardly get games on time here, so its good to see that we get a triple A title on the given release date. With X-Play(not the show, a game publisher in the Philippines) as the official distributor of 2K Games, BioShock Infinite will available in their accredited retailers once their doors open:

  • Gameline/GameGizmo/Teke
  • iTech

The game should also be available on other stores, so check in your preferred local store if it's available.

Aside from the Standard Edition of the game, a Premium Edition and Songbird Edition will be available, if you want to get some extra goodies.

The Premium Edition of the game will include:

  • A 3-inch baby version keychain of the sold-out Murder of Crows vigor bottle replica.
  • A 5 x 7-inch lithograph by Jorge Lacera.
  • A 25 millimeter, resin-cast Handyman miniature from the upcoming BioShock Infinite board game by Plaid Hat Games, makers of Summoner Wars.
  • A mini art book, full of BioShock Infinite concept art and commentary, with a hand-distressed cover.
  • Various digital goodies: exclusive in-game gear, a digital soundtrack, and platform specific downloadable content (Avatar costumes for Xbox 360, and Themes for PC and PlayStation 3).

If you want to go even further and really go the collectors route, there is also the Songbird Edition. It provides all that the premium edition has to offer with just one added feature - a 9-and-a-half-inch statue of Songbird, that mechanical bird that you will soon get acquainted with once you fire up your copy of the game.

I can't wait to get my hands on this game, and I'm sure people that are reading this feel the same way. So far, reviews are pouring in and it looks like it won't disappoint from what I'm reading.

New to BioShock? Don't worry. BioShock Infinite is not in any way a sequel to the first two games, so having this game as your first entry to the series won't ruin your experience story-wise. But I highly suggest you try the first two games when you have the chance, so you can really appreciate what Irrational Games have created.
