GreenDaily: Because nature can't wait until tomorrow.

Toys R Us puts BioShock on shelves already

All around the internets gamers are reporting and showing picture proof that BioShock's release date has been broken by a certain retailer and that they have the game in hand. Reports starting surfacing that some Toys R Us stores have "accidentally" placed BioShock on their shelves, with gamers posting pictures of their early release purchase on NeoGAF, Cheap Ass Gamer, The7Gamers, 2K Games forums and more. So, if you have an itch for Big Daddy fun, make a call to your local Toys R Us today to see if they have BioShock available. Lesson learned, you just can't keep a Big Daddy from being released early ... you just can't.

21. Simon, I'm in Cincinnati..

Anyway, I wouldn't assume your copy really IS 'on hold'...most of the times they say they'll do that to get customers off of the phone, but they really don't or can't place holds...scramble up there asap, man!

27. For those that have the game, how is it? Is it decent at least or poo?

28. Just got back from my GameStop (Orlando, FL) as well. I know the manager there and he stated to me, exactly what you just said. They (GameStop) are pissed that TRU broke the date and they (GameStop) are in talks with 2K to see if they can release BioShock prior to August 21st. If they can they should know within the next 24-36 Hours and will be calling there customers to let them know.

In addition they (GameStop) have already had their district managers call the TRU's in their districts and pull the BioShock copies they had yet to sell.

32. I'm at work but I was able to con my brother into calling around for me. Our Toys 'R Us (Rockford, IL) said they do have it, but one of the EBGames also had one LE Pre-order left, so I'm gonna scoop that up instead. I had been meaning to get in there to get a pre-order done one of these days but for some reason my mind kept telling me it was in September...

39. Went to Toys R Us in NJ At 250 Rt46 East. Purchased Madden 08 and got Bioshock for $29.99. Until August 18, purchase Madden 08 (any system) and get 2nd title of equal or lesser value for 50% off. What a deal!!! Thanks for the heads up.
