Bioshock 2 Confirmed...Why?

Ok, so the real question isn't why (To make money), but do we really want another game Bioshock 2 has been officially announced by Take-Two and that's all we know so far. We don't know if this game will be a sequel, a prequel...or a new game for that dusty N-Gage! (Just kidding). Personally I think this is absolutely horrible news! I don't think there is anymore to tell in this universe and can't help but feel that this game will one of the worst sequels in recent memory. THAT IS if this is a true sequel...A prequel may actually be a bit intriguing. Even though I don't want another Bioshock game that may possibly taint my love for the first game, but seeing how this world came to it's demise right from the start; That has a chance of being just as amazing as the first with many different ways of tackling that subject.

It would be very interesting to see these characters before Rapture turned to hell. I would like to interact with Andrew Ryan and learn more about his motivation to make this world, from the mouth the creator himself. I would like to learn about the discovery of the plasmids and the initial Big Daddy/Little Sister project. Rapture is a world that I am still interested in pre-Bioshock, but a game that took place after the fact wouldn't even make sense. Both endings don't give material for a sequel and the "good" ending was perfect in my eyes and I don't want to see anymore.

All we know for now is that another Bioshock game is coming and that it's going to be developed by 2K Marin (not the original developers). I don't know if Ken Levine will be involved in this project, but I would assume he is because otherwise I (and I think many other people) wouldn't be interested in this game at all. I trust Ken and if he is working on this game then I can't wait to see where it's going.

...I think I have a good subtitle for the sequel...

X360 Price cut in Europe

This article was taken from Gamespot.com

"Let the price wars commence--Microsoft has thrown down the gauntlet and cut the price of all Xbox 360 SKUs in Europe.

The Arcade pack will have a recommended retail price of £159.99 (down from £199.99), the Premium pack will be £199.99 (down from £259.99), and the Elite £259.99 (down from £299.99).

The price drops are effective from this Friday, March 14, and notably the new recommended retail price for the Arcade brings it in cheaper than the Wii--which at £179.99 has been the most budget-conscious next-gen console option since its launch in December 2006.

Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business Europe's VP, Chris Lewis, commented, "History shows that £159.99 is the price point where a console’s audience begins to expand, and with these new ERPs in place we’re ready to bring more consumers into the Xbox 360 world." "

I think that this is really good news for those in Europe thinking about purchasing a 360. I'm not saying this is good because of the Arcade pack, but because of the premium pack. With the HDD version now only £199.99 (Down £60!) people can get a fully functioning 360 for only £20 more than a Wii. You can't beat that deal and it makes me wonder if the states will see a price drop here as well. Maybe a drop to $300 for the Premium to coincide with the launch of GTAIV!? Who knows, but I think that would be a really good idea.

If the States do get a cut here our my price predictions...

X360 Arcade: $229.99
X360 Premium: $299.99
X360 Elite: $379.99

I know I have very optimistic thought about the Elite's price, but I think that would be the best price for it...
