Rumor: Exclusive Bioshock PS3 Details

There's no doubt that Bioshock has officially become one of the most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year, so any time we come across new details - even if they're not confirmed - we feel obligated to let you know about them.

PlayStation Lifestyle claims to have "exclusive inside info" on the upcoming PS3 version of last year's Game of the Year honoree, and while we've already heard about some of this, there are a few new things, too. First up, there should be a new opening video that lasts about 6 minutes; it's designed to show us what Rapture was like before everything turned to hell. Secondly, they mention a whole new exclusive level with two brand new enemies. This is supposed to be the "zoo level" that 2K left out of the Xbox 360 version of the game due to time constraints. Thirdly, it seems Trophies will be included, as will Sixaxis motion-sensing technology. Fourthly, we should be getting better visuals, decreased loading times, and less pop-up, which ought to satisfy all you anal tech fans out there.

Lastly, there is one detail we find difficult to believe: it says all downloadable content for Bioshock PS3 will be free. We wonder if this is exclusive content, because we know all the extra content for the 360 version thus far will be included in the PS3 version. But anyway, we're hoping to get some clarification and confirmation from 2K Games at some point.

Wow, sounds awesome. I thought it had been confirmed that visuals would be the same as the 360 version?

I doubt that the extra content is free... I mean yes, exclusive content and extra content from the X360 will be free to us, but all new content that will come out for the PS3 will not be free... That's like me saying, "Here Ben, take a million dollars" (Many gamers out there... and lets just say 5 dollars for one add-on... more than a million will eventually download it, thats 5 million dollars right there, no?) By the way Ben, You'll never get a pennie out of me!!! Im the cheapest there ever will be! Hehehe

Looking past the infered multi gig install I am glad to see that this isn't expected to be another poor port.

By "downloadable content will be free" they could mean two things. One, it was misinterpreted and all of the 360 content will be included (which has already been confirmed i believe). Or that, like Epic and Gears of War, 2K Was forced to charge money for downloadable content on the 360 and they will be offering exclusive content for free on PS3.

At first I was just planning on renting the game, beating it, and returning it. However, if the PS3 version really does get free downloadable content then I will definitely buy the game.

I own the 360 version but have yet to get around tp playing it after 6 months. Now reading this news, I may wait to see the final review and see if its worth selling the 360 version (still new) and getting the PS3 version, most probably the limited edition copy if they release one.

This is great news indeed! I played the PC version on my laptop and it played like a charm! Well, except the loading times between levels must of lasted at least 3-5 minutes. I'm specially looking forward to the 6 minute opening video!
