GC 2008: Bully SE graduating to PC
Rockstar reps on the Leipzig show floor confirm the 30-hour juvenile delinquency sim will soon be making mischief on a new platform.
After making a return to Bullworth Academy on the Xbox 360 and Wii earlier this year with the updated Scholarship Edition, Bully will soon make mischief on another platform. According to signage and postcards at Rockstar Games' booth at the Leipzig Games Convention, the once-controversial juvenile delinquency will soon be graduating to PC.
According to German-language handouts at the Rockstar stand, Bully: Scholarship Edition (known locally as Bully: Die Ehrenrunde) will be "soon available for PC" with "82 missions and 45 school hours, more than 30 hours of fun and countless collector and minigames." The game tells the story of Jimmy Hopkins, a troubled 15 year old who is dumped at the front gates of New England private school Bullworth Academy by his mother. At the prestigious school, Jimmy will deals with his past while trying to keep out of trouble and beat the school's bullies at their own game.
