Ultimate BioShock Infinite Edition Includes Statue, Hefty Price

BioShock Infinite's two special editions come loaded with extra content.

You know what would look great on a shelf next to your Big Daddy statue, Big Sister action figure, and vinyl BioShock 2 soundtrack? How about a 9.75-inch Songbird statue to commemorate the release of BioShock Infinite? If you've got a thing for collectibles, you might want to take a look at the BioShock Infinite Ultimate Songbird Edition, which comes with a hand-painted, resin-cast Songbird statue designed by Irrational Games concept artist Robb Waters. It won't come cheap, though: the Ultimate Songbird Edition retails for $149.99.

If that's a little too rich for your blood, you can opt for the $79.99 Premium Edition, which also comes bundled with extra content, according to the press release:

-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 (Avatars for Xbox LIVE, and Themes for PC and PlayStation 3).

All of this premium content will also be included in the Ultimate Songbird Edition.

BioShock Infinite will be out in February, but with the Premium and Ultimate Songbird Editions available in limited quantities, pre-ordering is recommended if you want to snag either of these collections next year. You can reserve them now in North America, and European and Australian gamers can pre-order starting on Monday, October 22.

This is probably the only interesting statue I have seen with a special edition of a game that I want. That said, I find that with most special editions I tend to look at what comes with them once, then forget about them.

Funnily enough the in-game gear normally interests me the most, but they are not worth enough to justify the extra money most of the time.

First the lootchest, and now this... well, glad I stopped buying games I'm not going to play, but still not saving any money. :/

Would you say the prices were... Sky high?

$149.99......actually doesnt seem that much to me

but then I'm Australian (so it may be more)

hmmm..tempting

Yep, when you pay up to $100 for the standard version of a brand new game, $150 really doesn't seem all that exorbitant.

I would much prefer to get the premium edition, statues never really interested me (or seemed worth the extra 60 quid.

I'm totally pre-ordering this when Amazon updates the page, although I really don't like the lithograph. I know it's the internet, but I have to say, I don't fancy having the devil on my wall.

If it was more like System shock 2 and less like whatever shooter flavor of the month Bioshock is I would have gotten Bioshocks big box.....

Can I trade in my $150 Old Republic CE for it?

I was hoping they'd do a statue of the girl. Too bad. Looks pretty impressive though.

I DO WANT! but I'm not rich! But I want the statue! but I could get the $80 one. But the statue is what I was waiting for! But I'm broke!

First world problems. :[
