With Bioshock Infinite still in the pipeline after a number of setbacks and release delays, it looks like 2K games has a trick up its sleeve to keep interest in the franchise high. Briefly spotted on the British Board of Film Classification (or BBFC) website before hastily being removed was a listing for the Bioshock Ultimate Rapture Edition.

Over this time there has developed a very distinct separation [...]
We all have our own happy memories of time spent in an arcade. When once so prevalent, they’re now confined to seaside towns, motorway service stations and the garages and basements of the congenitally nerdy. They’re a shadow of their former selves; slowly dying away under an ever increasing mound of ‘£2.00 a go’ signs [...]
