Bioshock publisher 2K Games has confirmed it'll release a limited edition of the PC and Xbox 360 FPS.
The company had set up an online petition, saying that 5,000 signatures would ensure the release of a limited edition of the game.
It eventually got 14,000.
And now 2K is asking fans what they would like to see in the limited edition via a poll. Soundtrack CD? Artbook? Big Daddy figurine? "Making of" DVD? Bioshock posters? Upgraded packaging? Art print with team's signatures?
Last month Ubisoft announced that Player's Pack Red Edition, new download content for Rainbow Six: Vegas on Xbox 360, would be released at the end of March and we're now here - so where is it?
Still in the development bowels of publisher headquarters, that's where, Ubisoft confirming that it's been delayed. A little late on the announcement there, but it's promised that it'll "communicate on its new release date as soon as we can."

There's been a bit of hustle and bustle surrounding the release of BioWare's Mass Effect this afternoon, as several websites report a US release date of June 5 and European release date of June 22 for the RPG stunner - though Microsoft is keeping quiet.
Italian site Spazio Games first reported the dates. Other European news ops have since claimed the dates as real, though Microsoft expectedly refused to comment when contacted this afternoon.

The first official trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV was seemingly the only thing anyone could talk about yesterday. It answered a few burning questions that fans had about the next chapter of the watershed car-crime series, but it opened the floodgates on thousands more. Is the setting New York or a redesigned version of Liberty City? Will human trafficking be part of gameplay? Will we be able to go into all those cool buildings, or are they just for show?
