Forget about finding a copy of BioShock at your local Game Stop, Circuit City, Target, Best Buy, or any other electronic or video game store, because BioShock is most likely sold out everywhere. Amazon still has it, at no. 1 on its popularity chart.
I'm very happy for BioShock. It is a magnificent game and deserves to be selling well.
I actually was skeptical about how well it'd sell due to its obscurity and lack of multiplayer - but I'm sure the demo and reviews were enough to get people to go out and pick the game up.
BIOSHOCK is available all over NA

BAD NEWS indeed BOTS!!!!
I'm a PS3 owner, but this game is really shaping to be the Game Of The Year...
I had thought pre-order was a complete waste of money because no game had ever sold out. Not even Halo 2 at launch.
nice to know
i got my copy for my 360 for $39.99 ($42.03 with tax) from walmart, i had a circuit city ad that had $10 off and it had the price of the pc version listed below the 360 one and thats what the clerk price matched me at... she was like "that sure is a good savings" (old lady voice) i just smiled.
edit: as a side note it really IS every bit as good as everyone has been saying, i love it. and its the little things that do it too. like when you are in the bathysphere thing at the start of the game and the projector is running for the "in flight movie" you can see light reflecting off the dust in the air... i mean who thinks to put that kinda thing in a game... wonderful.
I picked mine up at Best Buy and they had plenty. I also made them price match CCity's ad so I could get the 'rewards' points.
The game is awesome, I spent 4 hours last night slowly wandering through the game. There's a lot to take in for those who are interested in that sort of thing. Seems to be a plenty of things you'd miss by running through. Excellent game, no matter how you 'splice' it!
Bad news for 360 owners w/o a copy...
This game will be in the top 3 best sellers this year IMO.
wow very unexpected in my book. I knew it was a great game but I was unsure it was mass appealed to sell THIS well. Well I did tell 3 friends who knew nothing to try the demo and they all bought the game today. I still haven't entered rapture... :'(
too bad i can't play mine, my 360 ringed while in session!
really... whats you gamertag?
I am tired of amazon charts bs, what deserves attn is monthly and yearly sales.
went through a lot of effort to get the word on the street about Bioshock.
Obviously all of the money spent on advertising paid off in the longrun.
It is really nice to see a true AAA title selling well as it will give the developer more incentive for a sequal. I wish all the good games in the industry sold well and the garbage Movie licensed and EA rehashes wouldn't sell.
Then overall the gaming public would have more great games like this to play.
my f*cking 360 chose the worst time of the year to die
Same here man. :(
ill be ok, as im fast off the mark. im also off work friday, so therefore can get it 1st thing
My 360 is working fine and dandy since the day I bought it last year. I'm playing Bioshock and I'm enjoying every minute of it to the fullest.
What I wanna know is if this game made many ppl buy a 360 to play this game.
PS3 KILL!Yeah biyatches.
i hope you enjoy it next year as much as i am right now...
Not since Oblivion came out, have I playedone game so long.
Well not that long I guess. I am currently deciding how to deal with the first sister. Seriously, I have been going back and forth for 5 minutes.
im saving them all on normal difficulty (you get an achievment for saving them) then on hard im gonna harvest them all.
yeeh i figure ima be a bastard and harvest em all. then next run through, save em. oh well
so I saw a Daddy walking around with no sister, is this normal.
I got the second one, after the first daddy you fight. harvest and went to get more stuff, with the new adam. when i returned i saw one banging on the door, very depressed sounding. I didnt wait, to see if he was friendly, before i blasted away... maybe i ought to of.
I think this will hopefully sell a few more consoles, with HALO3. this and Mass Effect. Hopefully
BIOSHOCK is not sold out it is available all over NA at all stores

BIOSHOCK isnt SOLD OUT ANYWHERE
MOD pull off this THREAD please
funny even in the article the link leads to, it even says its not sold out. The guy just went to bestbuy.
How big of a jackass are you? I'll tell you...THEIR TALKING ABOUT BRICK AND MORTAR STORES!!! You fuc*ing idiot online does not equal in store copies dumbass. Go back to your PS side and wack off to Lair and HS until they release so you can finally play a game worthy of next gen gaming. stupid jackass.
@eclip I didn't check the link but he is talking stores, not online. It's sold out at a few stores around town here in Colorado.
I know. But on the qoute above it says, " Forget about finding a copy of BioShock at your local Game Stop, Circuit City, Target, Best Buy . . ."
While the Article itself says the writer had to drive to BestBuy to get a copy. Only that a few GameStop, Circuit Cities and others locations were sold out. Which I dont doubt. When I picked up my copy, they were only had the pre-reserved ones. But Still. His qoute is false from the actual story.
(who was trying so hard to prove that a Xbox 360 title could not have possibly sold so well,) I've just found out that Xbox 360 and its titles, along with Nintendo, are dominating Amazon's bestseller chart at the moment. Sony has fallen far behind on the chart. Wow. I didn't even realize that.
At the time of writing this:
Amazon's Video Game Bestsellers:
1. Nintendo Wii
2. Bioshock (Xbox 360)
3. Nintendo DS Lite
4. Halo 3 (Xbox 360)
5. BioShock (Windows)
6. Wii Nunchuk controller
7. Madden NFL 08 (Xbox 360)
8. Nintendo Wii Play with Wii-mote
9. Brain Age 2 (DS)
10. Xbox 360 Premium
11. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Wii)
12. Halo 3 Limited Edition (Xbox 360)
14. Finally, ... Sony PS3 (60GB)
15. Xbox 360 Wireless Controller
16. Nintendo DS Lite (Black)
17. Nintendo Wii-mote charge station
18. Sony Playstation 3 Wireless Controller
19. Sony PSP Core
20. Xbox 360 Elite
No PS2 or PS3 or PSP title!
I'm glad I got my copy before hand (Limited Edition).
And as soon as i realize that it was getting too hot, i bought a small fan and put it right next to it where air would blow sideways and it worked. my 360 has been working perfect. I have many friends that have been using the same method and we play together for hours and it never die on us. I recomment the same for those 360 owners.
sends a good message to third party developers as well...360 / PS3 owners want AAA, and consumers will respond...
