Bioshock Ships to Stores

Retailers nationwide are scheduled to receive their shipments of 2K's amazing and immersive Bioshock for the PlayStation 3. In what has been a very grueling wait for those that chose the PlayStation 3 as their next-gen console of choice, this port of Bioshock does not disappoint, as we've already covered in our review. Gamers can expect the very same quality and attention to detail found in the original on their PS3 copy.

“We are very excited to bring BioShock to an entirely new audience of gamers,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With its new features and the PS3 exclusive downloadable content, we are confident that players will have even more reasons to fall in love with the unique and unforgettable world of Rapture.”

Additionally, aside from a few improvements made to the game, such as trophies, new difficulty, and all new downloadable content, the PS3 version of Bioshock is also our first look at the sequel. Upon completing the game, you will be shown a trailer for Bioshock 2, and, of course, it too is headed to the PS3. Go out there and grab your copy of Bioshock, it should be available nationwide tomorrow.

Wow, this game has been out in the UK for four days now. Is this a first lol? I dono what it is about Bioshock, av played the PC demo, the 360 demo and the PS3 demo but never rented or picked up the game. I think the reason is... I am a student with no money. Of the top of my head, i want LBP, PES, COD5, Farcry 2, Motorstorm 2 so on... And i just spent all my money on Wipout HD, Saints Row 2 and Fifa 09 lol.

Too many games are coming out ( i never thought i would say that).

well, I am in the same boat as Craigo. Seeing as I have just out £100 on gig tickets (Opeth, Unearth and Coheed and Cambria) I cant afford many games right now. So I think at the moment I have to wait out for LBP.

This game is worth playing just like starcraft or super mario or any other classic is worth playing regardless of what year it came out

i think we get it, you don't wanna try out Bioshock, a game you have never played, oh well, you shall miss out on it, just like you are missing out on Dead space since its more of the same Alien smashing that R2 and Gears 2 will have, at least according to you...

Sadly, it's either this or Resistance 2 and I think I'm gonna get Resistance. Maybe I'll pick it up at Christmas time...

Fable shmable... Bioshock is amazing.

some games are timeless, I believe this is one of them.

Im not saying you could play it forever like say Cod4, GTA4 or possibly FarCry 2 (if it really is that good).
..But Bioshock will be enjoyed today as it was enjoyed yesterday and still played tomorrow by people who havent played it.

I will play it through, might even do it a few times (probably not though), then I'll trade knowing that it was one hell of a game.

Maybe Bioshock 2 will be a keeper? still, it is a crime against gaming not to play this.

Its like "oh theres no point playing Ico or SotC because theyre PS2 games and years old..." madness, sheer madness.

If a game is good it doesnt matter when you play it, whether its now or in five years time.

a classic is a classic.

I think making assumptions about people because of their game choices is a little rude, no one even knows if fable 2 is any good yet and fable (looking at reviews) was only a lackluster title. So why dont you say something like that somewhere else after fable 2 has recieved better reviews somewhere else

seriously barone, you come off sounding like an xbot by attacking his dislike of a game. He never even mentioned xbox 360 but you felt the need to attack him. Where you one of the many who came after ben's article about fanboys and just so happen to stick around?

I would like to give it a try cuz I want to use my newly bought xbox360 only for great 360 exclusives. so far, I only got Lost Odyssey for that machine and done with it for 120 hours lol which is great. Never seriously played a Western RPG, played a bit Fable 1 and Knights of Rebulican before, not thrilled, but this Fable II I would like to give it a try and make my 360 machine a bit busier too, while waiting for all those WKC, Last Remnant, FF13 etc to arrive for my PS3 machine.

Never finished Fable1, it got too repetitive. F2 is going to have to bear a serious burden, that and Gears 2 seems to be all 360 fans have to hang their hat on this xmas.
