Amazon.com has a digital version of the Bioshock Triple Pack on sale in its store for the same price as a single game, Bioshock Infinite.

The deal can be accessed here. The reason that Amazon.com's prices have been slashed so much, the company said, is that Sept. 19-25 is Bioshock week.

That's right; this deal runs from today until Sept. 25.

The bundle includes BioShock Infinite, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock. System Requirements are Windows Vista or Windows 7 We would assume they would work, as well, with Windows 8, Microsoft's latest operating system version.

Note: a Steam account is required for game activation and installation.

The original pricing for Bioshock Infinite alone is $19.99. Bioshock and Bioshock 2 are both priced at $9.99 each, so this triple pack is basically 50 percent off.

However, if you don't want or need Bioshock Infinite, you can get the Bioshock Dual Pack, which includes Bioshock and Bioshock 2 for $4.99, which is a great savings.

Once again, the Dual Pack, like the Triple Pack, requires a Steam account for game activation and installtion.

BioShock is a first-person shooter (FPS) developed by Irrational Games (which was, at the time, named 2K Boston), and published by 2K Games. The game was released on Aug. 21, 2007.

As noted in Wikipedia,

BioShock is a first-person shooter with role-playing game customization and stealth elements, and is similar to System Shock 2. The player takes the role of Jack, who aims to fight his way through Rapture using weapons and plasmids (genetic alterations) in order to complete objectives.

Bioshock is set in 1960.

BioShock 2, meanwhile, was released on Feb. 9, 2010. It, too, is a FPS video game and was developed by 2K Marin for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Bioshock 2 is set in 1968, eight years after the events of BioShock. In this sequel, the player takes on the role of Subject Delta, a prototype for the Big Daddies, enemies in the first game.

BioShock Infinite was released this year. In this case, 2K Games went back to the developer of the first game, Irrational Games. During development, it was codenamed "Project Icarus." The game was released worldwide on the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 platforms on March 26, 2013. .

In its first week of release, BioShock Infinite was the best-selling game on Steam's digital Top 10 PC chart.
