It isn't Vista exclusive, is it?

No, there is at least an XBOX 360 version as well. If you were talking about the limited edition, then I have no clue.

I haven't heard any talk about BioShock being a Vista exclusive on PC, so it should work on XP too. At least I hope so.

If it gets released on time it is due out the Friday before I fly to Florida so you all will have a 2 week start on me.

Mind you it has taken me over a year to get round to finishing Oblivion and i'm still not done with it.

Given that Take Two are singularly failing to finalise the Limited Edition for the UK, I may have to.

From the ttlg BioShock faq:
Quote:
What platforms is BioShock being released on?

BioShock is being released on PC and Xbox 360. It is not a Windows Vista exclusive game.
So no need to line Gates' pockets any further quite yet.

You'll supposedly be missing out on a bit of DirectX10 sexiness though.

You could always fork out US$30 for postage.
And if you don't, you'll have to live with the knowledge that there'll be a lonely Big Daddy somewhere out there, slowly drowning as his own diving suit fills with dejected tears.

And another 17.5% customs charge (plus a handling fee), making the cost something stupid .

Yes, I'm bitter.

I just picked up Agatha Christie - And then there were none for $11.39. Fun game so far. The gramophone just accused everyone of a murder and then the maid fainted. I gotta find some dudes luggage.

I just bought Deus Ex 2 - Invisible War yesterday. I remembered hating it back then but then i played it on the box or so console and thought it wasn't that bad. never had the chance to get it again till i saw it yesterday in the bargein bin. I must say the graphics were pretty weak but i downloaded the high res graphic bundle and now the game looks quiet good. bot uber next gen but at least multifold better than the original textures and the game is actually fun if you bother to spend some time with it.

well, you should then try StarLancer and maybe FreeLancer, too. I'm also a big space soap/opera fan of highest degree

My recent purchase was Project Sylpheed for Xbox 360, "Odin Sphere" and "Rogue Galaxy" for the PS 2.

I'm actually currently on a video game spree right now. It's kind of dumb...but I traded in so many PS2, Gamecube and XBOX games and really didn't get much back and now I'm buying many of them back. I regret trading nearly everything in...

But also trying to buy every NIS and Atlus RPG games for the PS2.

For PC, purchased "Company of Heroes", Star Wars PC Collection", "The Moment of Silence", "Missing: Game of the Year", "Hitman collection" for PC and "Age of Mythologies" collection.

And no..I don't have a lot of money. I just sold my Transformers collection on Ebay.

And, an extension cord for the Gamecube controller. They are kind of short, wasn't able to relax on the couch and play games before this thing.
