Kotaku recently posted some interesting news about job postings from 2K Marin. They have multiple open job listings for BioShock 2 positions specify PlayStation 3, Xbox, and Wii as the intended platforms.
Hope so. Bioshock one was fantastic, I was fortunate enough to play it on a nice PC, but everyone should get to play this, PS3, wii, 360, PC, whatever. The more Bioshock the merrier!
Indeed! Down with exclusive hoarding. Great games should be experienced by as many gamers as possibles - even those who can only afford a single system. +Bubble for you, good sir.
This would be awesome. Bioshock is a great game.
of PS3 fanboys yelling stuff like, "we don't care about Bioshock ... keep it ... yada yada etc etc." to me this seems insane. While I understand why an xbox fan would want to keep the game exclusive to their platform, I don't see why anyone would want to turn down the chance to play this game. I sure know that if Bioshock 2 (prequel) is PS3 bound, I'll be getting it.
unless Mircosoft writes another $check$....I wouldn't be surprized
I think the ps3 guys didn't care about halo and mass effect. Bioshock was quite kool despite it being another FPS type game. The graphics and art style were memorable. Iron out the problems and the sequel, even if it stays exclusive to the 360, should be a stella game. Im not speaking for all PS3 fans don't get me wrong but from what I've read most PS3 fans would prefer that game other the other 2 I mentioned.
Yeah, I bought the title at Christmas, and it's since been installed on my PC virtually unscathed. Well, not true: I managed to swim through the burning wreckage and to the building, and down the elevator, and save the game. Even during those meaningless five-ten minutes, I got a sense of it being a beautiful, intriguing game. The 'Under the Sea' background music was a nice added touch. I'm almost scared to delve into it, because I have a feeling it's going to reel me in...been too busy ever-so-slowly chewing on the myriad of my yet-to-be-played PS3 titles, not to mention what I've got pre-ordered this month and the next. This article's got me intrigued to fire it up again...do you recall roughly how long the game is?
My interest just went down. Probably the #1 reason it wasn't made for ps3 in the first place.
Trust me man ... there were plenty of Die Hards trying to piss on the game simply because it wasn't going multiplat. I understand these are not rational PS3 fans but, they did exist. I really hope it comes over to the PS3. Maybe I'm greedy but, I don't care. Quality games are always welcome to my console of choice.
What? What? What?! Torch, I highly recommend you give it a second chance, it will definitely reel you in, hook, line and sinker. But do it soon I implore you. With the impending release of GTA and MGS, poor old Bioshock doesn't stand a chance. Hell, what are you doing on N4G? Put that mouse to better use mister! Id say maybe 15-20 hours. Closer to 15 for the experienced gamer.
Agreed! Indeed down with console exlcusive hording! So when is MGS4 coming to the 360 again?? Can't [email protected] OHHHHH but wait a minute... I can already here the "F U" from the commentors.. Share the 360 "exclusives" but F U if you want MGS4 on the 360. Jesus I hate PS3 hypocrites.
but that was probably something to do with the fact it was meant to come and didnt so maybe some were a little bitter but Im sure deep down they respected Bioshock more than any other 360 exclusive other than gears. @GiantEnemyCrab You make a good and funny point that can be reversed. I personally would prefer if exclusives stayed exclusive. We should not pine every exclusive that the other console has. If you want a particular exclusive then buy the bloody console end off. You either buy a BMW or a Mercedes. Dont expect to get all of the Mercs features in your Beemer or vice versa that's my opinion ↓↓↓ I agree with you also ↓↓↓
Bioshock is running on a multiplatform engine (UE), it was exclusive because someone paid. A true exclusive is built from the ground up on that system. Bioshock going PS3 will not effect the 360 version in anyway, the same cannot be said for "true" exclusives like MGS or Too Human which have been built to take advantage of a certain machine.
uhh actually MGS4 is on a 50 gig disc, soo pretty much not possible to put on a 17 gig Dvd, thank god Konami didnt downgrade it so that it could. Also its not the people who owns the consoles decision, its the game developers so........your post makes no sense.
I won't say I don't think it should be made for PS3. But I genuinely don't want it. By the way, don't just read a part of this post, read it all. I think Bioshock is totally pretentious. It makes it even worse, becuase it was never intended to be, but the people calling it a masterpiece just show me how pathetic this generation has been so far, in terms of games. It's a shooter, and I played the pivotal parts, but I am waiting for it to actually effect me, in a way, that doesn't make me feel like I am losing IQ. NOW... not that it is a masterpiece, but I think the depth that went into Mass Effect made it a title I would much prefer become avaiable to PS3 users than Bioshock. I loved Mass Effect, even thoguh it was as mainstream as they come.
Well personally I prefer for exclusives to stay exclusive. What's the point in having different systems if they all have the same games. That's why I really applaud Sony and their first party devs... with the exception of Bioshock and Mass Effect, Sony has truly had the most impressive exclusives on their system this gen. Having exclusives makes it fun to own different systems though. Personally I feel that the 360 needs more quality exclusives, not to lose some of the best they have. If Bioshock AND Mass Effect go multiplat, I'll be kinda dissapointed.
The PS3 version doesn't surprise me. The Wii version does. I wouldn't think the Wii could handle the Unreal 3 Engine, but then maybe it'll be subtantially different than the other two versions. I could care less, as long as the presence of a Wii version doesn't hinder the others - but then, it doesn't seem to be with other games.
Does it have to support the UT engine ? really....isnt it getting obvious they arent gonna use the heavy engine. A few hours a go i saw this article about a an engine called Q....from the makers of Direct3D i hope they make use of that in some way it seems that Q can do allot with the Wii.
Epic was saying that they are gonna support it but they have not said anything abt it. Yeah but if Bioshock 2 comes to WII than UT3 too will come on it.
could always be mini-games only with a bioshock theme to it lol JK =P
Sev1512 blogged about this almost 2 weeks ago. I just dont get enough readers for this info to spread.
LOL. EDIT you dissagree because I think this is ridiculous?, BioShock is *suppose* to be on other consoles all the time Hell I can still find sites saying part one is going to be on PS3. Fanboys found a recyled version of the original news that was posted today because it was largely ignored and passed off as nonsense lol.
keep telling yourself that lol strangely i can feel your fear in your posts =P
BioShock is going to appeal to the masses on the Wii platform ;<.
You are right. This is just a rehash of the same story. Don't worry this game with be 360/PC again no PS3. Mark my words.
Then That way xbox 2 version wont be 3rd best looking PC/PS3 versions>>>RROD2 >>>Wii version
If it's going to PS3 I can believe it. But the Wii? Come on, it'd have to be a cartoon or something.
bioshock 2 for wii wtf are they thinking keep it with the 360 or even the ps3 i mean those are real consoles bioshock 2 will be half a$$ if it comes on the wii omg i loved bioshock i dont want to see an excellent game be turned into another generic mini game like every other fvucking wii game
It's coming and so is the Mass Effect series and Dead Rising 2. Lets wait and see. I don't mean it will come out when it does on 360(Mass Effect). Bioshock will. But Mass Effect is still coming at some point and so is Dead Rising 2. Wait and see. I can play it on my 360... I'm just saying. It will come. The first one on 360 didn't even sale 2 million copies LOL and Bioshock barely sold 2 million. It's coming Power of Green you are desperate MAN tis bad for your health. Your console is losing "Exclusives"...if they ever were going to stay Exclusives in the first place. We will know in not too long. ;D Mass Effect was a pretty big game to only sale maybe 1.5 million. Bioshock especially. All PS3 Exclusives this year will outsell those by quite alot. That really isn't very good at all you just 360 fanboys. Publishers see where the momentum is going... and they know its a Playstation and barely beginning. It all will come to PS3. Wait and see.
mass effect 2 was confirmed 360 exclusives and there is no dead rising 2 it hasnt even be announced and im talking about bioshock on the wii i dont care if its on ps3 BUT if its on the wii it will be a half a$$ mini game EDIT again with the flame war i was talking about bioshock now your talking about mass effect going to the ps3? its was confirmed mass effect is in development for 360 not ps3 it seems like your desperate for a good game i dont care dont spread misinformation as for dead rising 2 it hasnt even been announced and it is pure speculation stop being a fanboy and making up rumors and selling 2 million is alot the ps3 only has 4-6 games that sold that much where as the 360 has 16 or something around there EDIT whoa always talking about the future and even if the ps3 game did outsell some of them they still wouldnt a 7 game attach that the 360 has it would take at least 2 years for that to happen unless the ps3 sold like the wii which i highly doubt AGAIN another fanboy not looking at the facts and just opens his mouth thinking he knows things your an idiot plain and simple oh yea and its actually 18 games that 1 mil and above on the 360 and only 6 for the ps3 truth hurts
I don't think they care as long as they can spread missinformation to the ignorant. EDIT: 4.4 when I post and when its not opinion in nature I speak based from facts, your ignorant reply doesn't justify saying his comments *the equivalent of trying to convince other people that MGS4, FF, War Devil is coming to the 360* are true . lol. belligerent FOOL!!!. [Home! is coming to 360, First it was DMC4 next will be Resistance 2. lol]
You make it sound like selling just 2 million copies is a bad thing. Last time I checked that was still a very large number. Just maybe not enough for MS to stroke another check if they did it for the first one.
"don't think they care as long as they can spread missinformation to the ignorant." wow pog, you've just described your own posts on xbox forums.
That's just good news all around
The original was supposed to be PS3 & X360 but a nice check from M$ made that go away. Now that the PS3 is much more than just a plausible console, it'll probably happen. Wii, doubt it.
Yeah right. We know MS pays everybody off. If that was the case they would have bought this one too.
These exclusivity things always happen, PS2 gained a lot of exclusive last gen even though it was definitley possible on xbox or PC. The important is the Developer choice.
Suppose I should - looked good :)
cool if it will be happening, maybe they can have online....
of course it's coming to the PS3 its coming late 09 right? so let us see Bioshock 2= should be a bestseller PS3 install base by late 2009= at least 35mil or something whatever M$ can pay for the game still probably wont outdo the publicity and revenue T2 can muster by releasing the game on the PS3 not sure about the Wii though- the install base will be huge sure, but the question still remains: WTF?!?!?!?!?! @below jeez calm down and lets look at it objectively PS3 sold 10mil in its first year- thats the year when it was fcuking expensive for the first half, had barely any games and was getting a lot of bad press now there's a little less than 2 years to go until Bioshock 2 in those 2 years- the PS3 will get another price cut which will cause the PS2 owners to flood in, MGS4 will come, GT5 will , FF13 and versus13 will come, God of War 3 will come and all the other big titles like Resistance 2, Motorstrom 2.... there's a huge list your just a pissy little b!tch who calls people idiots without providing a valid argument EDIT: WTF?!?! what the hell does PS3 selling 35 mil by the release of Bioshock 2 have to do with anything you said my points were valid- you just sputtered a load BS with no grammar might i add also you tell me i reek of fanboyism, well hows this for fanboyism: "the 360 is a gaming console, the PS3 is just a blu-ray player" again, what has YOUR need for games on the PS3 have anything to do with total hardware sales by the end of 2009 like i said before- your a pissy little b!tch and yes i've heard the "all PS3 games get delayed" BS before- but it's just fcuking stupid to think those games will get delayed THAT much after so much time and practise on the PS3, and all the recently released dev kits
no doubt ps3 will sell alot but 35mil your really stupid arent you? ps i love ps3 and am not a fanboy im just saying what you said was complete and utter stupidy jesus christ what is wrong with people do you have evidence? no your game get delayed alot i mean alot you keep talking about the future never the present with the ps3 isnt that funny i get comments saying (ps3 will sell alot ,wait till the good games just wait) is always waiting always the future maybe thats why there catch phrase is play beyond im sick of waiting i want good ps3 games not sh!tty half a$$ ones like warhawk with no single player or heavenly sword which is 5 hours long or virutal fighter 5 with no online i want great games like bioshock crysis i want full games again you reek of fanboyism i love my ps3 for blu ray and uncharted thats it and everyone doesnt seem to notice that the ps3 has been selling good because of the format war thats it no games? its ridiclous how you guys fail to mention this 6 games out of the whole ps3 libaray have sold over 1mil while the 360 has 18 (or close to that) this proves that 360 is gaming console and the ps3 is a blu ray player and even if the 360 doesnt win? and the ps3 wins 360 still accomplished something it gave a ps3 a run for its money no one has done this ever since the playstation 1 came out it kicked the crap out of every systeme so did the ps2 but now that the 360 is winning its because the ps3 has untapped power? you people are in denial im not saying they will lose the war they will probably win but not by close and that hardware sales theres is no way possible they will sell software like the 360 PS DONT REPLY SAYING THE 360 SUCKS AND THE PS3 I HAVE BOTH SYTEME AND COULD NOT GIVE LESS SH!T OF YOUR RETARDED OPINION
Yeah.... Reported as offensive. Grow up.
No, not the Wii. I'd rather this game stayed on XB only then go to the Wii. Bioshock 2:The Dumbening. I'm sorry but I dont see how they can make the same game across the board and not have Wii's low power spec affect the whole design process. Maybe if its just graphics getting a downgrade for Wii then ok, but surely this show they will be doing nothing groundbreaking in the game as far as Physics or AI integrated gameplay goes. What if Crysis had been made from the ground up as a Wii/PC game?
until I played resident evil 4. We may dislike where Nintendo is heading but they are introducing more people to gaming this gen and that's beneficial to us in the long term
The difference is Gamecube was technically just as good as Xbox and even more capable than PS2. It could do just as much as either of its competitors. Wii on the other hand is not even close to PS3 or X360. In fact its closer to Gamecube than either of those other machines. And I dont think what they are doing is necessarily beneficial to gamers at all. Sure they're making lots of money buy saturating the market with interactive software for non gamers, but they're not bringing much for gamers. I see a danger because what if Sony and M$ decide next Gen, Wow, we didn't make as much money as Nintendo did, and it certainly wasn't as easy. Why dont we just recycle a generation old platform and stick a funky gimmick on it that Grandmas find cool? Sorry, I for one want technological progress between generations. I want graphics to be better, I want the horizon to stretch farther and I want the potential to rise. In sort, I want what possible this gen to have been impossible last gen. Nintendo just turned their backs on real gamers to save their own skins after losing for so long and while I dont blame, they did what they had to do to survive and its paid of bigtime for them, I dont want the others to follow in their footsteps. I mean, we still all want to keep playing games like CoD4, Uncharted, Gears, GT5, etc, etc. These are all games that push the boundries and even if they weren't mostly 1st party wouldn't be on Wii.
It will have some weak @ss sales #'s. I hope they get money up front because they will not get it at retail.
so ur saying u wouldnt buy it just because it was on the ps3? ......fanboy
immersion & story, not graphics. Why the Wii hate?
because bioshock coming to wii would go against the whole Wii doesnt get adult games thing ps3 fanboys like to talk about (even though its not true)
Will not come for the wii. The wii f_uckin sucks. They would have to downgrade the quality of the game sooooooo much. I believe it can come to the ps3, but believe me people. The way to play the game is on pc! I love the pc version soooo F_uckin much. See I have a ps3, but no 360, but alote of games for 360 come out on pc, so I get them on pc. The quality's better and the Games cost cheaper. Whats the point in buying a 360 when I can get gears for pc. With more content.
behold that, RROD, and the parent company being M$ are the reasons i haven't bought a 360 yet
Because you have to wait? How is Mass Effect on the PC again? Ohh you are still waiting for it.. Well I've finished it like 5 times now. That this the reason. I am not going to wait 9 months to 1.5 years to play a game I can get now on the 360. I do partially agree with you. I wish MS would secure sole exclusivity to the 360 and stop wanking it with PC gamers.
M$ do release the games THEY publish only for 360 and not the PC however since Microsoft Games Studios is teeny-tiny they have to rely on 3rd party support (which will run out) for exclusives- and those go to the PC and things like Bioshock and Lost Planet all came out simultaneously for the PC
and you can play PC games on the PS3 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA http://uk.youtube.com/watch...
so the ps3 owners get get to experience a phenomenal game. my goty 2007.
an arcade title!
"I just hope they call it BioShock Too, because that's a funny and lighthearted way to name your sequel and the first one was sort of depressing. Who's with me?!" (kotaku blogger:) Look Who's Bioshocking Too? Bioshock Reloaded Mine: Bioshock! Part Deux Bioshock: Bigger and Deffer on PS3. (just kidding) :) Return of Big Daddy Funny titles will have more mass appeal. lol
Bioshock 2009 Bioshock: Im sorry we had to can the 360 version (lol) Bishock: Revenge of the spastic surgeon Bishock& Gang in- The Spooky Island EDIT: yeah man, these 360 guys need to learn to chillax once in a while and have a joke-about
have you seen the European Hardware charts bro? I think Bioshock 2 might be coming to Playstation 3. Wow! :) XBOTs BioSHOCKED..lol :)
Bioshock: Sports! Play with PSP graphics! And Tacked on Waggle! For wii!
You! Wrong zone! Fanboy crap in Open Zone! Thanks!
Not being a Fanboy. I own A 360, PS3, and a Wii. If anything I was the biggest fan of Wii ever. However, Factually speaking games ported to Wii from 360 and PS3 are Absolutely TERRIBLE
interestingly not funny. Dont know how you guys can play psp if it has such bad graphics.. seems to be the complaint against wii even though it has better graphics than psp.
and I can say for sure this is FAKE.
Hmmm, another one of these articles. Anything is possible, I do not see much validity in the Wii version. I see a little more chance it will come to the PS3, but you no what. I could care less which console it comes out on, becuase I own all three consoles.
I say F*** Bioshock and Gaylo 3 keep them on the 360 PS3 doesn't give a rats ass about those games anymore. Once you have Resistance 2, Killzone 2, Crysis, and Project Offset you don't need any other 1st person shooter games. Putting a HD Game on the Wii is just mental. Too bad I gotta wait till Project Offset comes out in 2009.
It won't come out for the wii, but a ps3 version is definitely possible.
