Lame that they dumped the multiplayer (a trend I don't like) but... what a solid collection.

The moment that hits $20 I'll be all over it.

And if you already own BioShock, BioShock 2, and/or Minerva’s Den on Steam, you will be able to upgrade to the remastered version of the respective title(s) for free after release. It’s a circus of values!
Neat, since I already own all of these on PC

Great news.

I never care about the multiplayer anyway. Will buy it.

Yeah, this is great. I just played the first bioshock a few months ago and it's graphics hold up surprisingly well. I've been meaning to get around to playing 2 since then, but I'll wait until I can upgrade.

Never played any of the games so it looks like I will have to pick this up. Any recommendations on which platform I should get it for.

I'd rather have a new Bioshock game, but I'll take what I can get. The multiplayer was poop anyway.

What Star said. I've bought BS1 vanilla, BS2 vanilla, BS1+BS2 Rapture Collection, BSI vanilla, and BSI complete. I'm in zero rush to buy a remastered collection. I'm actually more frustrated that these did not go BC, especially when BSI was supposed to. Heck, I think all three Bioshock games were at one time confirmed for BC. *sigh*

I'm in since I never played the originals even though I have one or two on 360.

The image of this woman has always made me want to play Infinite.

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

One of my favorite series ever. I just replayed through the whole series and all the single player DLC last year so I'll probably hold off on this but glad to see it come out. Bioshock 2 is criminally underrated so hopefully this collection will get more people to give it a shot.

Seemed like some folks here didn't care much for Infinite, but I absolutely loved it.

Infinite isn't bad, it just had really dated gameplay

On the flip side, I thought the gameplay was just fine and didn't understand that complaint at all

Re: Bioshock Collection (PS4, XB1, PC) - 9/13/16

You can buy Bioshock, Bioshock 2 and Ultimate bundled together for $10.51 on Steam right now. Then upgrade for free in September.

Not sure if that includes DLC.

I am very happy with this...I love all three games...and Minerva's den is still the best dlc ever released..

and I am REALLY happy they got rid of the MP..now I might actually get a platinum trophy on Bio 2...

I'll also pick it up on a sale. I just played through Infinite and all of the DLC for the first time earlier this year, so I'm in no hurry to play again. The first Bioshock on the other hand, I've been itching to replay for years now. I can't believe it's been almost 9 years now since I've played it.

Can Infinite be played out of order?

Absolutely. It's a self-contained story and only thematically related to the other two games.

I think part of it was it wasn't as creepy and claustrophobic as I and II. But yeah, It's great game.

Contrary, I'd say it's nice to play the first game prior to Infinite. Especially if you play the Infinite DLC. You don't have to, but it adds a little something.

There were some really small bits of foreshadowing to infinite found in Bioshock 1. It's really mind blowing when you realize Levine had the whole story planned out that early in the series.
