Looks good, but still a bit too 'action hero' for what the game will actually be like...
Soylent_Green  +   503d ago
Yeah it's a bit heavy on the action hero. Hopefully we get a nice subtle thin case like we did with the first bioshock. It's a strong logo, doesn't really need a picture.

Nathan Drake?? Wtf, this doesn't represent the game well at all.
SilentNegotiator  +   503d ago
What a step down from the original and the one with Bomberman on it.
-Gespenst-  +   503d ago
Bit heavy on the (I'd add "white American" here) action hero.
WrAiTh Sp3cTr3  +   503d ago
Yeah, they should've used the girl on the cover like the first one, which imo invoked emotion, just like the actual game. But maybe this game will lean towards more action than Irrational's first one.

Agreed...I understand that this game is based on American patriotism but they could have tuned the cover down a little.

Edit: All the cover needs now is Captain America wearing a Proud to be Republican t-shirt.

Well the flag *is* on fire....they could have done worse.
MariaHelFutura  +   503d ago
The cover is the original Uncharted cover in reverse. BUT really, who cares? We all know the games is going to be amazing. I would buy it, if it came in a paper sleeve honestly.
firefly69  +   503d ago
have you play it already!???
camel_toad  +   503d ago
I agree but they may be going with this kind of action hero cover just for the moms and casual gamers that wander around the store just looking to grab a game that they know nothing about.

All of the non-casual gamers like us already plan on buying it no matter the cover so they don't have to worry about us liking the look.

He looks like Nathan Drakes ancestor....you know the pic they used on most Drakes Fortune marketing with him and the shotgun above his shoulder
showtimefolks  +   502d ago
i can't hate on the gaming seeing how i pre ordered the $150 collectors edition lol. How often a game box makes you say i have to get this game? its something you look at once and im my case never because i buy the game its in a bag than i come home put the disk inside my system and that's all for the box.
XXXL  +   503d ago
Looks awesome. can't wait this is my most anticipated game for next year.
MizTv  +   503d ago
It's funny how people don't like that you really want this game
I'm with you dude!
XXXL  +   502d ago
Lol. Tell me about it. Bunch of tools

Is that Nathan Drake?

Kidding, of course

Looks cool but it could have been better.
azshorty2003  +   503d ago
Don't like it. I thought the placeholder art was fine. Doesn't need a big hero with a gun plastered on it.
DigitalRaptor  +   503d ago
F***ing awful 2K.

I expected better from a BioShock game.
Soylent_Green  +   503d ago
I can understand it from a marketing stand point, but from a graphic design point the purist in me hates these main character covers. My favorite cover this gen is either Oli Moss's Resistance 3 cover or the Sleeping Dogs cover. oh and Heavy Rains origami cover was really cool and understated.
ginsunuva  +   503d ago
Starhawk, Killzone 2, God of War 3, and R:FoM had great covers too.
Fateful_Knight  +   503d ago
Very generic. Cancelling preorder. Kidding, of course, i don't have a preorder. Considering the subject and setting, they could have done a lot with it. But you can't judge a game by its cover.
FlairSomewhere  +   503d ago
You had me going there, for like half a second, lol.
Kran  +   502d ago
which is what everybody is doing for some reason :/

Reminds me of the first Uncharted box art

Yep. I noticed that, it`s just reversed.
medman  +   503d ago
If I didn't know what this game was about, this cover does nothing at all to inform me. That is a disappointment. This appears to be very generic and not at all inventive or exciting, which is not at all what we have come to expect from Irrational.
Hufandpuf  +   502d ago
"this cover does nothing at all to inform me."

It does to me.
1. there will be guns
2. the main character has 1930's clothes (set in 1930s)
3. there is a zepplin (sky action)
4. the background is clouds (sky action)
5. burning American flag suggests anarchy

it could've been better, but don't say it doesn't tell you anything about the game.

bring back the water world!!!!!!!!!!! this sucks!!!
MattyG  +   503d ago
*6 months ago* "Bioshock Infinite looks amazing OMG I can't wait! I was getting sick of Rapture!"
*Now* "This game's gonna blow because of its bad box art game looks generic, bring back Rapture, blah blah blah."

Sometimes I just don't get the gaming community.

Seriously, I do hope we never actually see the main character's face in game. From the videos I had seen so far I had an image of the protagonist looking like Buster Keaton, maybe a little taller and more masculine but certainly nothing like Mr. Squarejaw McFauxhawk here,
Jinkies  +   503d ago
I hope we do, they've put a big deal on his and Elizabeth's relationship throughout the game, im glad he wont be mute
th3n00bg4m3r  +   502d ago
I just love your username and profile picture.
Blacklash93  +   503d ago
I would rather have Elizabeth with him or Songbird on the cover, not just Booker in a moody pose. We may as call him Brooder Dewitt.

Go! Go to your room THIS INSTANT!

BAD! BAD PUN!
taijutsu363  +   503d ago
Its cool that they show the main character though! Actually ca see what he looks like!
yeahokchief  +   503d ago
me gusta.
dubt72  +   503d ago
Yeah, Songbird woulda been better
JohnApocalypse  +   503d ago
This s the best they could do? No Songbird or Handyman?
Ethereal  +   503d ago
I like it. Granted a million different things could have been done but remember what the gaming industry has become. *Cough* Call of Duty *Couch* Why would they put all this cool character design on it like the songbird when the mass moronic populace will look at it and go "what the hell is that?, Ill get the game with the military guy on it with a gun" I sold games for the last 6 years this is how it goes 99% of the time. They are just looking to grab that market. Either way it is going to be an amazing game and we all know it.

banjadude  +   503d ago
This looks like a cover for a TPS spin-off of Bioshock, to be quite honest.

I like it though.
SandwichHammock  +   503d ago
I'm not feeling this nor the new main character redesign (facial). hmmmm.

I really would like to know what the f went down at Irrational over the past 6 months. Dropping of multiplayer (yay!), leaving of some of the main guys on the dev team, main character redesign.
art book pleezz!
rpd123  +   503d ago
Stop complaining about it. Yeah it's different from the first two, that's the point. It's a different time period and a completely different setting. They want to make it look different because it is different.
th3n00bg4m3r  +   503d ago
I read that the PlayStation 3 version will include the Original Bio-shock and it will be compatible with the PlayStation Move.

I don't care what the boxart looks like because this game is going to be awesome no matter what.
But I would rather have Elizabeth in there somewhere.
