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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
