Bioshock 2 releasing Nov 3 in the US, earlier in Europe

Thus far, the game is expected to ship on PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 simultaneously at launch

The sequel to 2K Boston's 2007 smash hit BioShock has received an official release date of November 3, 2009 for North America. Yet, in a surprising twist on the usual way games from the U.S. are released, it looks like Europeans will be getting the game earlier than North Americans will for once. Europe will be able to get their hands on some plasmids this October 30, 2009.

Thus far, the game is expected to ship on PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 simultaneously at launch. However, Take-Two has yet to officially announce what platforms the game will be coming to, as their press release for the second quarter earnings still lists the games platforms as "TBA." This has led some to believe that there might be a timed exclusive release for the first-person shooter.

In a recent interview, Take-Two CFO Lanie Goldstein said,"In terms of BioShock, we're still working out what the right SKUs [versions] are and the right timing." Company chairman Strauss Zelnick quickly added: "No you shouldn't read anything into that."

Whether on one platform, or all three at once, you can expect BioShock 2 to hit our shores November 3rd, 2009.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
