CONFIRMED: BioShock heading to PS3 Pastures

Wow, color me stupid, the rumors actually turned out to be true. Apparently the next issue of EGM is going to have the whole story, but 1UP/Joystiq let the cat out of the bag a bit early.

The game is going to be made available to PS3 owners by holiday 08' and it might come with graphical improvements. Yes, the article actually says "might" or "maybe"... at this stage in the development of the port, you'd think that it would be a definite confirmation or not of those grpahical improvements, but I guess not. Whatever, we'll find out in the months ahead...

http://www.joystiq.com/2008/05/22/bioshock-officially-coming-to-ps3/

Defintely a game I'd recommend to any PS3 owner, especially one who likes FPS games with a twist of horror. :D

very true indeed... and then mass effect will follow.. .. i probably wont buy bioshock.. but i certainly want to check it out and see what it was so great about even though it just looked like a horror FPS underwater... i believe the "graphical improvement".. take oblivion for example, remember that?. it had improved framerate, graphics etc when the PS3 version came out (then they released a "patch" to help out with the 360 version)

Not that it's saying much but, aside from Resistance and COD4, Bioshock crushes any FPS on the PS3, hands down.

I think it really depends on your preference of FPS games. For me, BioShock is the best FPS released. It's free-roaming, dark gameplay is a breath of fresh air compared to the COD's, Halo's, and Resistance's of the world where everything is so linear and straight forward.

That said, however, those who immensely enjoy multiplayer will find this game lacking in the department...

Oh, no doubt this will blow away the single player for both Resistance and COD4, I was talking about overall. Resistance's single player was actually pretty fun since it incorporated platforming and millions of bizarre weapons, but Bioshock is much deeper and better suited for my tastes.

I can't wait to play this. One less reason for me to buy a 360 :thumbsup:

Lets hope it runs better than some previous unreal engine based titles have. IT's a great game, I continued playing it at the weekend, think I'll stick to me steelbook 360 release though :) if they did an SE again with the big daddy figurine however I could be persuaded to rebuy :p

My main reason for not getting a 360 yet is the hardware. Bioshock, Gears 1 and 2, Halo 3, and Ninja Gaiden 2 are the only 360 exclusives I care about, but now Bioshock is multiplatform. We'll see how Too Human turns out but I'm guessing it'll bomb.

Let's put it this way: If Resident Evil 5 on the 360 turns out to be superior to the PS3 version in ANY way, I'll hop in my car and drive to Best Buy to get a 360... stat. Hardware issues or not.

Not true. I refuse to pay that much for a likely faulty piece of hardware. I'm probably one of the biggest proponents of Apple products. But their new OS Leopard is a disaster. Apple pulled a Microsoft on this one, and rushed the product to market WAY too early. I haven't bought it yet, and probably won't until I see from articles and reports that it has finally been stabilized.

Until the 360 w/HDD is less than $300, then there is not a reason for me to pick one up.

The 360 should be a far "safer" proposition after summer GLOW. The new chipset with the GPU and CPU on a single chip shouldpretty much fix the RROD issues and also take away the jet engine operating volume too.

I'm gonna hold you to that! :D

But I doubt it will happen, CapCom is an amazing developer and everything I have seen from their multiplat releases so far have been even across the board. :o

Yeah, I heard about that. I hope they'll be easy to spot in stores. I'd hate to have to be turning boxes over trying to read the model #.

Check again, Eternal Sonata was pulled from Namco's PS3 release list. I was pretty bummed about it when I saw that.

It crushes most FPS games, period.

I think the Bioshock campaign was leaps above the call of Duty 4 campaign, and the COD4 campaign was damn good! (Good enough for me to waste a week beating it on Veteran)

Bioshock rocks, but it doesn't quite live up to the hype IMO. The combat/reticule had a goofy feeling.

Still a solid 9 for story and Atmosphere alone.

I agree, I think the one area it was lacking was refined use of the analog sticks... They could have been a little smoother and more user friendly, but they were better than most FPS games.

I think all FPS devs should copy Halo 2's aiming system exactly. Copy it 100% line by line. It was perfect.

Don't get me wrong Bioshock was an awsome game, but for me once I finished the game (end boss wasn't that great) I put it back in the cabinet and haven't played it since. It is good to see a great title coming to the PS3 especially with the big let down that was HAZE. Let's just hope we don't see that on the 360 anytime soon.lol. I'm really looking forward to GOW 2. I loved the 1st one and played it really until Halo 3 came out. I've already beaten GTAIV with like 85% and really don't think i'll play it anymore. I just got a Wii so my g/f and I have been playing that a ton as of late. I hope the GTAIV DLC is worth getting otherwise i'll trade that puppy in for credit towards GOW 2. Anyway hope PS3 can actually become more of a gaming machine than blu ray player. To me that is what it looks like it has become.

It still has yet to be proven in a side-by-side comparison that the PS3 outputs better graphics than the 360... the only comparisons you guys have, actually, are either from PS3 games that were ported a year+ later from the 360(like Oblivion, Lost Planet, and BioShock) or from games where it's really just a matter of opinion (like GTAIV and it's resolution/warmth).

So... ya. Take that. :cool:

I think COD2,4 do it the best for console shooters. Halo is a tad slow, and the ultra slo-mo uber-jumping is a bit much for me.

R6 Vegas is really good to. I think every FPS needs a 3rd person cover system.:2cents

Actually, adding to your other comment about Capcom, DMC4 was probably the only Capcom multi-platform that did good on the PS3, non-XBL/PSN that is.

Have you played Lost Planet on the PS3? It is far inferior to the 360/PC version and I, as a PS3 owner and Capcom fan, was insulted that Capcom released such a bugged out came. Considering they have their feet wet with DMC4, Lost Planet was awful on the PS3. Not to mention a mandatory install that just added injury to insult.



As for the PS3 versus Xbox360 debate. From everything I've read, games developed on a specific platform leads in performance.

Burnout: Paradise is one of those big ones that had the PS3 version as lead, and it was said in multiple articles it was the super version. DMC4 is a multi-platform that I read often the PS3 version was superior. And CoD4, although here it is completely subjective since I personally don't see a difference, it is stated to be better on the PS3.

The rest of the ports (minus DIRT/Oblivion) the 360 version is superior, by a long shot.


As for the topic, hehe this is where I say "hurr hurr told you so." EA is going to buy TakeTwo, and we'll see Bioshock 2 hitting the PS3 too. EA has been vocal about their opinion of Europe becoming the dominant gaming territory and that Sony will grow strong there. With Bioshock getting a PS3 release they are increasing the fanbase for Bioshock 2.

If all this is true, we'll see Europe dictating the future sales/exclusives over the USA.

[Note: My opinion. hehe.]

I'm referring strictly to the analog controller movements in Halo 2, not the freakish Spartan jumping height or anything like that.

As far as aiming and movement, nothing, not COD4 nor Halo 3, have even come withing eyeshot of Halo 2's superb analog controls.
