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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
