Irrational Has Revealed Its BioShock Infinite Ultimate Songbird Edition

It’s been revealed that BioShock Infinite will receive the collector’s edition treatment not once, but twice, giving the series’ numerous fans some retail choice. First up is the Ultimate Songbird Edition, which will come with a statue among other things, and will retail for a crisp $149.99. However, if spending that much money on one game is too rich for your blood, you can opt for the regular version or the next step up, which is referred to as the Premium Edition. That one will come with a suggested price of $79.99, with the catch being that it doesn’t include the impressive-looking statue that its peer prominently boasts.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (20th Century Fox) Sequel to the seminal 1980s film catches up with a weathered, but still determined Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas, who seems to savor every syllable of Allan Loeb and Stephen Schiff’s screenplay) just out of jail and back on the comeback trail.

Somewhere along the line, the prop became a reoccurring gag between propmasters. Something like how sound designers reuse the Wilhem Scream in every movie. Check out some examples after the jump. And here is more: Power Rangers Zeo A Murder of Crows A texasi láncf?
