Rumors: GTA Massively Multiplayer Game, Bioshock for PS3, More!

  We love rumors, we really, really do. We love them even more when they come from credible sources such as EGM, who publishes a rumor column every month, with bits that usually end up coming true. So when a new issue of EGM drops, most of the time we tend to scroll right to the rumors and look for the newest bit of gossip. This issue in particular has some very interesting tid-bits.

   First, EGM is reporting what we've been speculating for a very long time now: Bioshock is heading to the PlayStation 3 in September, and will come complete with all of the game's downloadable content, as well as improved visuals. This is a topic we've been talking about since before the game launched on the Xbox 360 last year. We've long believed the game to exist somewhere within Irational Games (now 2K Austin), seeing as how development of Bioshock began for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, as indicated by an early press release for the game. Now we have to wait and hope that EGM, or their sources are right about this.

   Another notable rumor is that the Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 bundle is going to be extremely limited, so if you don't secure yourself a pre-order sometime soon, you may very well be out of luck. So if you've yet to grab yourself a PlayStation 3, why not pre-order the year's best damn bundle before they're all gone? And please don't pre-order these with the intention of re-selling them on eBay or something, if the bundles end up becoming a rarity and being worth something, it won't happen overnight.

   Finally, the best news of it all...how does a Grand Theft Auto massively-multiplayer online game sound? Go on, take a minute to lift your jaw up off the floor, to change the pants you've just wet, and to wipe the tears of joy off your face. We know. We know. It's insanity, but we at PSXE, have personally heard the same rumor some time ago (when EA proposed to buy out Take-Two), and so we feel it may have some credence.

   Other rumors included in this issue of EGM do and don't pertain to Sony, but we'll list them anyways:

  • Bioshock 2 to be revealed Early Fall
  • Halo Prequel for Holiday 2009, Third-Person Shooter
  • New 3D Castlevania for PS3 & Xbox 360. Separate adventure for Nintendo DS and Wii.
  • Max Payne 3, Red Dead Revolver 2, LA Noire Coming to X360
  • Persona 4 for PS2 to arrive in North America in 2008, PSP and PS3 Personas in development
  • RockBand 2 coming with new gameplay modes

@Arnold: Typo alert "complete with l of the game's downloadable content" i think it is supposed to say "all" not just l.

With all the proof of the bioshock thing id be shocked if it didn't come to PS3. However the september release seems iffy. I'd expect either between late October and early November or very early in 09.
Didn't Sony say the MGSIV bundle would be limited when the announced it?
GTA MMO. Wow. Either the best idea ever or the worst idea ever. The worst part is: there is virtually no chance this game will be good.
Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Revolver 2 will be welcome as both games have a large number of big fans.
And how is it a rumor that RockBand 2 is coming and that it'll have new features? A release window or specifics qualify as a rumor. This is a speculation that any 10 year old with the ability to type coherent sentences could make.

Well it would be great if the PS3 got Bioshock - the 360 fanboys would hate it.

I hope L.A. Noire doesn't come for the 360.

Oh yeah i forgot to mention LA Noire in my first post. LA Noire going to 360 is a guarantee if and only if Sony did in fact cut funding to he project like they were rumored to have. I don't actually believe that the funding was cut because the evidence is sketchy at best. So until better proof comes out I think L.A. Noire is still exclusive.

Hmm, Keyword: Rumors. If LA Noire was infact cut off funding by Sony then they would have came out and said this a while ago, therefore as of now I declare it a false rumor. No,who am I to declare a rumor false... but still the evidence is there, it's staying as a PS3 Exclusive.

I'd like to see LA Noir remain a PS3 exclusive. Sony can't afford to lose anymore exclusives right now.

I mentioned this before somewhere - not sure if it was here. But I remember the first time I read about L.A. Noire the devs were talking about it being exclusive to the PS3 because their vision of what they wanted to achieve just couldn't be done on the 360.

But now if they end up making it for the 360, then hopefully they wont scale it down.

i have never heard a piano coming to rock band but i always thought it would be a cool touch, but for one i dont think it would happen because alot of songs dont have use of a piano especially metal songs, and how would you u integrate it with the gameplay as far as how many keys are actually used on a piano and how the game is ran for the guitar or drums? it might be fun but i just dont know?!?! rumors... gotta love em'!

A piano would make sense for synth songs, stuff like Depeche Mode, New Order, The Cure, etc.

Well you have to really take this rumors into consideration especially the one about the Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle. I'm going to buy about four of them and sell them on the internet. Hey video games can be a business to people outside of a GameStop too you know...
