Bioshock Achieves Gold Status, But No New Story Ending

It's done and good to go: Bioshock for the PlayStation 3 has officially gone Gold, and it should be hitting store shelves throughout North America on October 21, and internationally on October 17.

Just about all the extra content you've heard about will be included: all the downloadable content released since the original title came out in 2007 for the Xbox 360 and PC, new challenges, and an extra six minutes for the game's introduction. However, according to Joystiq, the rumor that a new ending will be featured isn't true. In speaking to MTV Multiplayer, senior producer Melissa Miller said that when "you get a chance to work on something that was really creative you get the temptation to re-do things." But very simply, she said the team "chose not to," so if you've already played the game, don't expect a different conclusion to the story in the PS3 version. We would've liked to have seen a new ending, but the simple fact that this will be the most robust Rapture adventure possible is good enough for us. If you have yet to experience this intense and atmospheric FPS, you have no excuse to ignore it in three weeks time.

Then again, perhaps you're more into LittleBigPlanet, which releases on the same day in the U.S. There will be quite a few showdowns during the month, and although Bioshock is technically a year old, it can hang with anything released today. That much, we know.

Hmm, I thought about this and decided that yeah it's "New to you" but since it ain't actually new I'll wait till they toss it in a bargain bin. I'll be busy with really new titles, I bet it will sell well, but they missed the boat... shoulda devved for multi to begin with.

I already have my preorder down. I played the 360 demo a few times and loved it but didn't have the money for it at the time.

I thought the dlc was free on the disc. oh well..

Just pre-ordered this today, along with Far Cry 2. I also have Fallout 3 and Saints Row 2 on pre-order. Plus, I'll be getting LBP as well.

I think it was a stupid idea to release it a year later the sales will be poor in comparison to what they should have been, I know im not spending my money on bioshock when i have r2, farcry 2, fallout 3 etc. to choose from. but I am glad they sent it to ps3 its an awsome game and it would be terrible to get the sequal but not the first (saints row 2) the sales of bioshock ps3 will see there highest point when there is a lot of hype around bioshock 2.

Yeah alot of people will be annoyed that it didnt release multi plat. What i cant stand is Microsoft paying to block millions from having a good game. If Sony did it i would be just as equally disappointed. Its a great game but its being launched at the wrong time and considering many Ps3 gamers will be going for games that developers wanted to come out on ps3 day one i believe this may be a flop.

I agree with WorldEndsWithMe and Karnelli lll.and sadly im sure waay too many other gamers will agree. I hope this wont affect Bioshock 2 on ps3...
