1Up: Can Online Petition Net Bioshock SE?

Who says the big companies won't cave to the power of an online petition? Not the dudes over on the BioShock boards, that's for sure.

The story is this: a bunch of fans over at the 2K Games BioShock Forums got to thinking "Wouldn't it be cool if there was some kind of special edition version of BioShock that we could buy to show support for the game". They took their case to the company but (sadly) were informed that no special edition would be forthcoming, despite their enthusiasm.

At that point, a BioShock fan named Rapture_Tourist (apparently undeterred by the bad news) headed on over to, where he set up a big ol' petition designed to plead the case for BioShock SE with 2K games.

The petition existed for a while in silence, gathering signatures. Then surprisingly Elizabeth Tobey of 2K posted the following message over on the Cult of Rapture (BioShock's official home):

"I've had quite a few people ask me if there will be a Bioshock collector's edition. Then, today, an enterprising fan made a petition asking 2K to make one. So I talked with some people who were older and wiser than me, and pled the case of the fans. And if we get 5000 signatures on this petition, I have gotten word that they'll make a limited edition of BioShock.

So what do you say? Think we can do it? Think we can get 5000 signatures?

I think we can."

The Internet pretty much took it from there. At the time of this article's writing there are currently 13,924 signatures on the petition.

The story is too old to be commented.
