I just purchased my copy from Walmart and they price matched the CC ad. About to play it. Post your impressions here if you bought the 360 version.

It should be waiting at my door when I get home from work today.

It's going to be a long day :(

Anyone else think that the voice of Andrew Ryan sounds like Stewie from Family Guy? :D

I had the 360 version on preorder but when I went to CC, I decided to pick up the pc version. After playing the pc demo last night, I found the kb/mouse combo more comfortable and its $10 cheaper, so no brainer!!!

I'm gonna run to Best Buy this evening and hopefully grab a copy along with South Park season 10 on DVD. :D

My god, am I that far behind on my South Park seasons already?

Anywho, I thought they were supposed to be bringing keyb/mouse support to 360 or is it all in my head like the voices?

Hehe...they've been really good about getting them out. :)

The only game I'd even heard rumors about supporting KB/mouse on 360 was Unreal Tournament.

MS will be selling a addon mini keyboard that will connect to your controller, it is for messaging and not gaming.

There has been no reports or rumours of keyboard/mouse gaming, including for UT3. If keyboard/mouse gaming is that important you should look at a PS3 or better yet, buy a PC which comes with a keyboard and mouse "in the box"!

:D

Well I was debating on which platform to get it. I would go with the 360 if I could use mouse/keyboard.

The whole KB/M issue is what made me want the PC version. However, if you don't have a super computer, you might as well get the 360 version.

Let me just say . . . I've played about 30 minutes past where the demo leaves off. I've got all light in the room off and the 5.1 cranked up high. What . . a . . game. There are a ton of surprises just past the demo, not to mention a few scares here and there. Just wow.

I went ahead with the 360 version...figured the trade in credit at EB when I'm done with it will make up for the $$ difference.

That and for some reason the big screen, surround and couch were begging me to get it. The couch even offered me a bribe!

Wait...maybe that because my computer chair gets all my time lately. Hmmmm.

:D

I'm really torn between getting the PC version or the 360 one....

I think it's an easy choice. Bioshock is a console game, poorly ported to the PC IMHO. Unless you have a quad-core CPU and a 8800GTX, get the 360 version.

Has anyone else even played it yet besides me? I'm in Neptune's Bounty right now . . . taking a small break from the game to make it last lol. Great game so far, I love it.

I stood in best buy for 15 inutes with the pc and 360 versions in my hands. I couldn't decide on which one to get. I played the demo last night on my new 360 that arried yesterday. (probably refurbished but had an 8/2/07 build date on it *shrug*) I finally decided to get the 360 version because it just looked great on my big screen.

I have a:
C2D 6400 @ 2.8
Vista 64 bit
4 gigs of ram
8800 GTS 640

would I get a better experience on it or a 360? I'm leaning towards the PC since it's 10 bucks cheaper. If the game runs better on the 360 however or if the performance/experience is equal, I may go with the 360 version and get some achievements.

Its annoying isn't it? Aren't they capable of releasing games on this bloody continent as the same day as the US?

Is the demo a bit different than the final game? I had that fire plasmid by the time I was at the Little Sister and Big Daddy, but in the full game I don't have it yet and I'm in medical...

SPOILER - Kinda

You are close to the Incinerate Plasmid. Just look for the "Eternal Flame".

The game was primarily made for the 360, so I'd say go for it. Everything is the same between both versions, but you can tell that it's made for the 360.

Does the full version support Widescreen properly?

I'm hoping it was just a demo glitch and widescreen people aren't having to miss out on stuff
