Thanks to reader Richard for sending over the picture. He says that a user on the NeoGAF forums revealed this image. The lucky gamer reportedly purchased BioShock at a Toys "R" Us store in Houston, Texas a week before it officially goes on sale.
OMG, lucky them. I wish I could get it now. :( Cant wait.
im gettin the better version of this game i cant wait!! :)
omg poeple at that local Toys "R" Us are really luck
lucky guy, and smart enough to buy 360 version of madden too
Very smart to have picked up the 360 version of Madden and as well the soon to be AAA game Bioshock, now add halo 3 and mass effect in that picture and the return of that MS perfect storm is more fierce then before..hehe
Anyhow that's one lucky bastard, he gets to play something everyone have been salivating about the last 2 months. Hopefully he or she post no spoilers online somewhere. Maybe they will play madden only up to the real release date..lol
If anything this is an inside job..
I am going to try this tommorow!
THATS NOT THE GAME! Seriosuly you all must feel dumb He bought Madden then pre ordered bioshock look at it the cover is some Holagram card its flat and look at the bottom of the madden case and look at the bioshock card this is false info and shoudl be reported LOOK CLOSER!
exactly what I was going to point out...
Go to the pending stories section and theres another story on this and the pic is of the actual disc...
also the reason why the grand total is not 120 bucks is because Toys R us is having a sale when you buy madden 08 you get the next game of equal or lesser value half off.
costs $29.99. amazing! yeah that bioshock isnt for real. what he paid half down for preorder?
What's on the top of the Bioshock box? It looks like the 360 exclusive stamp, doesn't it?
When you go online to pre-order it, there is no stamp (on the pic). Hmmmmm...
You know, it really does!
That's incredible, hm. 2K and Toys R Us must be "Xbots" then.
I wonder if PS3 fans will be able to see that stamp...
I see that disc... Poor quality pic though. Looks as if the person took it with a cell phone camera as if the person that posted it took it lol IdK looks fishy...
Um have you ever received a pre-order card from toys r us? Well to cetch you up to date at toys r us you receive a card(not liek at ebgames/gamestop) and the card will show you what the game cover will show you pritty much so it will have the stamp to aprove its a Xbox360 game.... For instance The Darkness say the card had the xbox stamp and the playstation sony emblem.... understand?
im not a fan of the game
but that person could make some
cash right now
$29.99! But anyways I want the CE so I wont get it from here
I checked "Toys R Us" and when u buy Madden 08 you get 50% discount on any other game you buy So he bought madden 08 and then got 50% off Bioshock which was 59.99 and if u see the receipt it says 29.99 which is half of 59.99. It says "50% Off Select video game when you buy Madden 08" at toys r us stores website/stores. This is legit go check-out http://www.toysrus.com
why does the receipt say NJ if the person bought it in Texas?
I need it now! Can't survive without.
Been there... done that... All EA managed to do was bring a high definition Madden that plays like the old PS2 Maddens.
They brought back what worked on Madden 05 and 06 for PS2.
Madden 08 is an improvement over the terrible Madden 07, but If you're like me and you've put long hours in Madden on PS2, you're gonna feel like you're doing the same thing all over yet again.
Only worth a rental regardless of what console you have. Actually if you're a big NFL fan, it's worth a purchase. While pretty common it's still solid and it's a game that you will be playing thoughout the year with friends or online. I guess games like that are worth a purchase rather than games you beat once and done with
i wouldn't call it fake considering all these people who revealed they have the game have achievements for it also.
My 360 is currently in the shop getting it's repairs, so as jealous as I am that this guy got it early, be happy that you all got to at least play the BioShock demo. I'm literally foaming at the mouth in anticipation
Looks real to me, and this wouldn't be the first time a street date was broken.
edit: Looks to be official, Bioshock is out!
I went into TRU this morning - they were sent only 5 copies and already sold out. Obviously they are expecting another shipment.
They said there was no release date listed like there was on Madden 08, so they figured they could sell them.
In any case - we're only 6 days away. If you can't wait that long, I'm concerned about you!
I just went to my Toys R Us, and they wouldn't let me buy it.
Guess its a store by store basis.
(Checked other stores too, they have it in stock. But are selling it the 21st)
what douche buys bioshock AND Madden? MAdden should not disgrace the glory of bioshock like that!! GAHH!!1
