With BioShock mania at a peak just four days before it's release, these rare faceplates have begun surfacing on eBay and are fetching anywhere upwards of $100 or more in some cases.
No wonder. They are relly sexy. I'm a person who normally dont care what my console looks like. But I'd gladly preorder a Bioshock Special Edition to get one of those!
Around 360 launch, Microsoft showed off a bunch of different faceplates and boasted about how great it would be to have tons of different varieties to choose from... but look where we are now. Where the hell are all the awesome faceplates? Sure, this BioShock one is pretty damn cool, but they made it a limited edition! Grr! And what is the average consumer left with? Gears of War and Halo 2 faceplates? Please!
Although I like the faceplate idea, I wont get one. The main reason for this is it makes the console look wierd if you can see any surface other than the front. Thats why I always use skins instead. Slightly more expensive for a full skin but I feel its worth it.
offering a free face plate with their orders of bioshock. while it aint the same as the ones on this post, i think these are pretty cool too
Both look gorgeous. I just hope I'll be able to get one without ordering Bishock. (I live in norway and have already ordered my copy here)
people really like the game
nice olat i still have my gears faceplate on
don't like the whole face plate thing have bought one yet as i think they would look odd plonked on the front of a white console if i had an elite I'd probably have a gears one though
I got my bioshock faceplate pre-ordered with the game, so all I gota do is wait. for now I'll just have to make do with my forza 2 faceplate which i got from play.com (uk)
