Europe Gets Bioshock PS3 Earlier

As most of you already know, October is shaping up to be downright huge in terms of next-gen releases. LittleBigPlanet may lead the way, but we're also getting Far Cry 2, Dead Space, and the highly anticipated PlayStation 3 version of Bioshock. And hey, you know how we tend to have crappy news for European gamers when it comes to certain big releases...?

Well, not this time. According to Euro gaming site GameRush, the title will release a little earlier in the European regions; the U.S. gets it on October 21 and our buddies across the pond will get it four days earlier on October 17. You thought we were going to tell you about a delay, didn't you? Nah, 2K Games wouldn't do that to you, although we have no idea why the game is releasing earlier in Europe... No matter, Bioshock remains one of the best games of the generation, and we can guarantee it's going to be fantastic. We've heard of one early review - a perfect 5/5 from the Official PlayStation Magazine - but you won't see any others until the review embargo is lifted next week. And when it is, you won't have much longer to wait for our review, which - like all our reviews - should assist you in making the ultimate purchase decision. Will it be worth the price of admission?

Chances are, if you haven't played it already, the answer to that question is a resounding "yes." But yeah, this time, European gamers get the jump on North America, so savor the flavor while you can, gents. ;)

So the land of th Euro gets a bone.

Ah, makes no difference to me. People keep telling me that I'll never want to play another game again once I've played Bioshock. Seems a little like just deciding to induce a controlled substance of some sort...

I'll stick to my favorite games, even if none of the foreseeable triple-a titles look like my thing, spare the largely anticipated WKC. I hope its as huginormous as it's slated to be, cuz its gonna need to tide me over for a LONG time.

Who cares, everyone check out psu.dotcom for their RFOM2 coverage.

The game looks so amazing, I was not expecting the graphics to be that good, I really really wasn't. The gameplay looks awesome, but I can't get over how awesome the graphics are.

I'll let it slide this time, but this is most certainly off-topic.

I'm glad. The euro region definitely needs some perks from Sony. May this be the first of many.

ahem, don't forget the much more important pound region ;)

The earlier the better for with this game as far as I'm concerned.

Release date differences would be reduced if we had a global day of release rather than Friday in Europe and Tuesday in the US. I prefer Friday as you then run into the weekend wheras getting the game on Tuesday means you have to suffer through 3 days of work before you get to play.

Would it be so HARD to release games and consoles on the same day worldwide? Call me silly, but who needs all this one-ups-man-ship. just release it all at the same time already

Europe also had months of Home beta testing prior to any US testers being introduced. Mind you, that would still only make this the second real 'bone' I've seen the Old World thrown, but in fairness, I felt it should be mentioned.

Oh man Im so excited about this game. I cannot wait. I know it's not good to do this, but most of the games coming out from Silent Hill Homecoming all the way down to the end of November are day 1 purchases for me. It's going to be hard to decide whether to play Little Big Planet, Bioshock or Eternal Sonata come Oct. 21. AAAAHHHHHHHH!H!H!H!!!!!!

At last something comes our way for once even if it is only by a couple of days :) So many games so little time, however come the summer we won't be saying that as that is when the drought of games tends to come along lol.

With Bioshock releasing so close to LBP's release (or on the exact same day idk), I won't be able to actually play the game until December. Then again R2 will be coming out on the 4th of November, so that just adds another month... and I really want to play this game! I'm a sad yet happy gamer... So yeah, I'm jealous of you Europeans getting it a couple days b4 us. I could really use those extra days...
