For some reason I'm not able to pre order on the site. Keeps telling me when I click paypal that "The payment type is missing" and when I attempt by credit card "Sorry, we were unable to authorize payment with the provided payment information.". I'm am beyond disappointed. I have a visa if that is of any matter
I live in Romania. Will the Irrational Store ship the game there? I can't select Paypal as a payment method, and if I enter my credit card details, it says that it won't ship to that region, or the game has been deemed as mature and not recommended for my age (not the case). Can you direct me to a retailer that will ship to Romania, please? Thanks.

GAME UK is now live. Just ordered the Songbird for Ł110
It's all well and good saying limited, secure your copy now etc - but I want to know how many copies are being supplied to UK for example (i.e what is GAME allocation of stock)....
This is important as if it's anything like Bioshock 2 and 1 to some extent they I will wait for the price crash.
Worldwide numbers would suffix, but UK numbers would be really useful and as they are only going through 1 retailer you can hopefully let me know...
Why would they want to?
It is way more effective to simply say they are limited rather than giving a specific number.
I have been able to pre-ordered the Ultimate Songbird Edition for myself and the Premium Edition for my girlfriend yesterday night. I am so glad about it. The money is really worth it in my opinion. I think that the both editions are very great and I like the goodies you will get with these editions. My personal highlight is the Songbird of course. Songbird gives me the creeps since I saw it for the first time and still is a creepy but totally amazing creature/machine/being. I really like the design and style of it, the Big Daddy of the skies, you could say. The same goes for the other stuff you will get with the collectors editions. I am really looking forward for the release and I am more than happy to be able to get the super-awesome Ultimate Songbird Edition and now all we can do is waiting for the release.
I'm trying to pre-order at the Irrational store, however...
I cannot proceed to the checkout screen when trying to use Paypal as my payment method. After clicking Checkout nothing happens, instead a red text appears saying "The payment type is missing" even though I clearly selected the Paypal option. I checked all the information I entered multiple times, and nothing is missing/incorrect. I know of someone else who had the exact same problem as well.
Could someone please look into this?
Also, first post Hello everybody!

I think I might cancel, Amazon and Game Stop are selling these ?? I know Amazon gets these in by the pallets, I used to work there. Because of this I doubt the LIMITED quantities as stated. If they are I would like some PROOF..
I'd like to know which courier company do you use for international shipping? I live in Mexico. Thanks

I think the takeaway here, is that customers are getting confused by the word 'limited'. In the context of a video game special edition, it solely means that, once sold out, there will not be more of that version made available. There will be more copies of the normal version of the game, printed as needed. I think you should only buy the limited edition if you actually like the unique additional content being offered, and should not concern yourself with how many other people will also have that content. I also think too much is made of the underselling of limited editions.
Unless your concerns are more related to resale value and selling on eBay, which I think Irrational would have even less reason to assuage your concerns about the limited availability of these editions...
I would also have to agree with you on the hopeless fanboy ordeal. Although I admit that I'm a hopeless fanboy, who preordered the Ultimate Songbird Edition immediately after I got a hold of the news, I do have some feelings of disappointment in the back of my mind. I feel that the Ultimate Songbird Edition is a little too bland for such a large price hike over the Premium Edition. For that $70 increase the songbird statue plus a season pass or a full size vigor bottle, just something! Get creative Irrational! Finally I would like to say that I am looking forward to the art book, the linen cover is indeed a nice touch, and the songbird statue looks absolutely amazing. The game looks incredible as far as I know, so keep up the good work Irrational!
Looks like the U.S.E. sold out again on Amazon for all 3 platforms! The "Sign up to be alerted for availability" message popped up again.
the Premium Edition however is still available for preorder, though. If anyone's interested.
I have some questions about the retail versions and I hope you could give me an answer, because I really don't know which version I am going to buy. :-)
- Is it possible to activate the serialnumber of these versions on STEAM so I could add it to my list?
- Do I need a Microsoft Live Account (like in BioShock 2) to play the game?
- If I am going to preorder the premium edition on Amazon, how do I get the access to that flash-game?
- Will there be an protective DRM solution, so that you could only play the game when you are permanently connected with the Internet?
Thanks in advance!
Gone for the premium edition. Not fussed about the statue.
I'm from France and I just checked if there were any Limited Songbird edition available to pre-order in the different retailers, but I only find PS3 or 360 versions.
Will there be some PC version of the Songbird edition available?
Thanks for answers!
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the anwser!
I hoped that I would be able to order with one of my usual retailer!
I just pre-order the Songbird edition through the link you gave me!
I wanted the Songbird Edition so bad, but I only had enough for the regular edition.
Hopefully they have learnt their lesson from what happened with the BioShock Collectors Edition. My Big Daddies drill was in two pieces Should just invest in bubble wrap this time!I don't want to sound offensive or anything, but I hope that this time the shipping agency doesn't let the container with the Songbird edition fall to the ground.
I don't think my heart could take that disappointment.
But still, can't wait to get this one CE!
Irrational just posted a nice detailed video about Songbird in the blog:
Heh. I keep seeing comments about the broken Big Daddy's pop up. That was a freak accident, so no worries. Even so, 2K really went above and beyond, replacing those and giving out a free art book as compensation. (Funny trivia: Remember the BioShock 2 unboxing video? The shelf that the BD knocks over? Those are returned BD statues that go flying. LOL.)
