So...
If i were to buy this game in Sweden, it won't include the original Bioshock game ?

Well that kinda sucks but not enough for me to not buy Bioshock:Infinite.

Guess i'll just have to buy em' separate in order to complete my collection.

not sure if serious.....

Like always the rest of the world gets the shaft and yet if NA dosent get the odd Collectors Edition for example that the rest of us get people get upset like it's the end of the world

As MasterA has said below

We pay more and we get less

Yeah, that's the way it works when everything good is made in North America. When Sweden makes a game and manufactures it there, you'll pay less and perhaps get your own bonuses. I live in Canada and we'll still be getting Bioshock 1. But really, just buy the game from North America on ebay or something if you really want it since PS3 is region free.

Well thats funny because Media Molecule, a British based developer made LittleBigPlanet 2 and America got better bonus's, an amazing Collectors edition and it was cheaper. All we got was a steelbook, hell it worked out nearly the same price of us buying the steelbook to americans collectors edition

I panicked until I read "outside US."
MidnytRain  +   652d ago
Why did I get so many disagrees???
Campy da Camper  +   651d ago
Because I didn't panic. I simply took a long pull off my beer and re-read the article again.

^^^

Hilarious!

But I'd guess disagrees came from those outside the U.S. feeling like they got shafted? They want the original game for free too, you know.

Well this is sucky news for us non-US folks :L
Ritsujun  +   652d ago
import it, as easy as f
JimmyHACK  +   650d ago
This was a known fact from the day they announced the Bioshock add-on and being US only back in March..No clue why it's news now.
TemplarDante  +   652d ago
wow.. wasnt expecting that..
NonApplicable  +   652d ago
Yeah, that kind of sucks but it's not a deal breaker. Any self respecting gamer should have played Bioshock already.
chaos999  +   652d ago
Kinda stupid.
Fortunately I have my hard-cover copy of the game
abzdine  +   652d ago
i still have the first one so not a bad thing for me.

Was going to buy this. Now I won't.

This kind of nationality discrimination is not acceptable to me.
grailly  +   652d ago
kinda makes sense looking at the game, when you think about it lol
MasterA  +   652d ago
So people outside of the US, pay more and get less.
Flatbattery  +   652d ago
I'm used to Europe getting boned, but now it's everyone but North America. Strangely I'm not all that surprised.
Kennytaur  +   652d ago
I'm sure most Bioshock-interested have it already anyway. But a shame for those that don't. Please fill the blu ray with behind the scenes content instead.
Moncole  +   652d ago
Everyone already played Bioshock so its not a big deal.
Oldman100  +   652d ago
lol
According to this article the US = All of North America.
th3n00bg4m3r  +   652d ago
What is with North America and video games?
Ben_Grimm  +   652d ago
It's the place to be homie!
bryam1982  +   652d ago
We (the usa) are the ones that move the videogame market if you compare sales by region then you'll see why we are treat like kings lol
DigitalRaptor  +   652d ago
Thank god. Won't make the crappy box art even worse by an intrusive label saying "Includes the original BioShock".
dubt72  +   652d ago
I guess they could only swing this in the one territory where PS3 is getting dominated, lol.
kingPoS  +   652d ago
Who knows? maybe there's a silly parity rule that had to be followed outside US territories.
All this will do is bring extra sales from import sites such as ebay, amazon or whatever have you.
