Rumor: Shocking revelations -- Bioshock coming to PS3 eventually [update 1]

The 360 game Bioshock looks awesome. We're not going to lie. In keeping with our not-lying policy, we're reporting on a report stemming from OPM UK. They say that Bioshock is indeed in development for the PlayStation 3. They don't even say it once. They say multiple times that the game, thought to be exclusive to 360, is in development for Sony's platform. Propaganda spread by the Official PlayStation Magazine, or truth?

It's a half-truth. The magazine claims the title isn't an exclusive, but a timed exclusive. If those who really want to play the game can wait the extra year, they'll get their Bioshock on the PS3. 2K Games will bring the title to all other consoles after a while on the 360. Are we excited? Sure. We aren't quite sure how long the exclusive will last on the 360, but estimating from other titles, it can be anywhere from a few months to an entire year. We'll keep you posted on the validity of these reports as they turn up.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

[Update: 2K Games has decided this rumor just ain't true, folks. For now. We've still got hope for an eventual port, however.]

1. wake me when it's confirmed please. I think we've all heard way too much flip-flop to care at this point.

I mean, it makes John Kerry looks like a loyal guy. :)

2. I will play it on my X360 and rent the game at Blockbuster for the PS3 when it comes out.

3. I agree with #1. This is no different from the many MGS4 on xbox 360 rumors that keep popping up. Like doctors tell patients with diarrhea, let me know when you get something solid.

4. I for one don't care for this game. It's just another FPS with not much innovation. What's so fun about shooting little girl looking things?

5. This one should stay as an exclusive. 2K is has done alot of business with Microsoft in the past.(and currently)

(Microsoft bought the exclusive rights to Halo 1 when it was also in devolopment for the PS2...good move if you ask me...no Halo no Xbox)

This will be a 360 exclusive while MGS4 will be a PS3 exclusive.

6. EGM's Crispin Boyer does the Bioshock coverstory on for this months EGM and he says

"Due on Xbox 360 August 21- and, we expect, the PS3 eventually.

7. you shoot them underwater, that's innovative!

You can? Aww sweet, I take back what I said.

9. Sadly if it came to the ps3 it would probably be as awful as the splinter cell DA port.... that was just fugly. If it is a timed exclusive dont plan on it coming out until late 2008.

10. Oh and as far as innovation goes, From what ive read and seen battles take place across multiple rooms and the AI seems to be rather sharp. It seems to be fairly open ended compared to other FPS titles. That and yes you can shoot people under water.... you can electrocute them as well

11. massive_98 - Quit your fibbin.

Halo was never considered for the playstation. It was being developed for the Mac. Then it was going to be ported to Windows.

MS bought Bungie. Killed development on Mac and Windows and they concentrated on a Xbox version instead. Later they made a Mac and Windows version that didnt do so well.

Halo was based off the Marathon series which was mostly a Mac exclusive game.

12. >Sadly if it came to the ps3 it would probably be as awful as the splinter cell DA port


Or... it could probably be as good as Oblivion port?

50/50

13. Who thought this was an exclusive? IGN has been saying it would be coming out for PS3 for months. This is not news.

15. ^Except the Wii. Poor Wii.

16. >^Except the Wii. Poor Wii.


Wii fans are capably happy with stickmans and 2D graphics. Introducing new things like realistic water might frighten, or even anger them. I don't think we need to rush it.

17. Sorry to disappoint fans, but it's a Xbox360/PC exclusive still.

I too wish it was coming to PS3, :(

18. It's not 'just another fps'.

This game is from the people who created System Shock - it's more of an FPRPG. Think System Shock, or Deus Ex. A genre that clearly needs some attention.

19. "Well, considering they will probably have to downgrade the graphics to go on the PS3"

Vice versa

20. LOL @ kingofwale

@JonnyBoy2U

It wouldn't matter if it was multiplatform or not. The wii couldn't handle the game. 20% better gamecube graphics couldn't support it.

If I could I would buy all 3 consoles. Sadly I don't have that kinda of cash to buy all three and spend money on all the great games on all three of them. Plus, I don't know how I could spread the love to all three equally. One might be less attention and might die, or get too much and die (like my 360) Damn you heat that warps the motherboard over time, because I played it too long. Oh, well. Free new console. No big.
