Rockstar Games announces Bully: Scholarship Edition for the Xbox 360™ and Wii™

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rockstar Games is proud to announce that Bully: Scholarship Edition is coming to the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo this Winter.

Both the Wii and Xbox 360 versions will retain the wit and deep gameplay of the previously released PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system title and will boast additional new content. Bully: Scholarship Edition takes place in the fictional New England boarding school of Bullworth Academy, and tells the story of 15-year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he experiences the highs and lows of adjusting to a new school. Capturing the hilarity and awkwardness of adolescence perfectly, Bully: Scholarship Edition pulls the player into its cinematic and engrossing world. Universally acclaimed upon first release, Bully: Scholarship Edition is a genre-crossing action game with a warmth and pathos that is unrivaled.

Bully received a perfect “10/10" from Electronic Gaming Monthly and 1up.com and was heralded as “a great, well-crafted action game that has one of the best senses of humor around" by IGN.com. USA Today called it “a fantastic debut title by Rockstar Vancouver." The San Francisco Chronicle wrote “Bully has no shortage of creative energy, offering an immersive boarding school experience that is imaginative, funny and filled with surprises."

Come and explore the zealous joy, mirth, and torment of youth with Jimmy Hopkins and Bully: Scholarship Edition when enrollment commences this Winter.

Wow, I totally didn't see this coming. Did Bully even sell that well?

Next up: GTA, Mario with Hookers edition.

Kairon, things have to be more subtle than that. After NBA Street w/ Mario, Nintendo moves onto Blitz the league, then comes Grand Mario Theft Auto.

Then Birdos on a Plane!

I admit, I like the concept, but I really think it needs a flashier name. Birdos doesn't really fit the phrasing, IMO. They would be terrifying on-flight enemies, though.

Hmmm, this makes 2 newly announced games from Rockstar that are *not* going to be on PS3.

TJ SpykeJuly 19, 2007

A directors cut of a PS2 game and a port of an Xbox 360 games are hardly "new" games. In fact, that is only 1 newly announced game from Rockstar Games (and that is stretching it, since it's not really a new game).

No point complaining. Would you be happy with Smugglers Run instead?

ZapJuly 20, 2007

I'd be happy with a wii smuggler's run, preferrably not a port.

I wish I worked at a game store so every time someone bought Bully i could say, well Bully for you, huh? huh huh. And they'd just look at me and go, yea, it's for me. And I'd just say it all over again.
