Rumor Control: Bioshock For PS3 (Spring 2008?)

The Tengu Restaurant was the site of lively conversation tonight, and like any lively conversation, there are some bits that are worth repeating

PSU learned while talking to developers at the dinner that Bioshock, the game that won the 2007 Game Critics Award for Best Action game, will be coming to the PS3 sometime in the near future.

There was positive discussion almost to the point of confirmation that this title would hit for the PlayStation 3 next spring. While there have been various sources since X06 that claimed a PS3 version was in development, it would seem not a question of whether it's true at this point, but when it will happen. Despite PSU's confidence in the integrity of their information however, PSU must emphasize that this is still a rumor, and Take Two has not officially confirmed this with us yet.

The story is too old to be commented.

All x360 exclusive titles are coming to one platform or the other,either a console or a PC.
even live arcade titles are going *cough geometry wars*
xbots i say it again do yourselves a favour sell your consoles till you guys have the warranty and get your selves a PS3,Wii and a PC.

achira3580d ago (Edited 3580d ago )

i dont get it too. what is the sense of a xbox360 ? ahh... RRRRROOOOODDDD.

edit: sorry could not resist.
edit: sajape, no the point is, you can play all xbox360 games on ps3 or pc, but the ps3 games you can only play on ps3, thats the point.

sjappie3580d ago (Edited 3580d ago )

cause games are going multiplatform? Does it make my 360 not able to play those games?
Great idea degenerate, I'll sell my 360 and wait till spring next year to play Bioshock(if this news is true). Yes, you guys love to wait.
RRRRROOODDDDD HAHAHAHA!!! simpletons.

Achira; it still makes no sense to sell my 360. If I want to play exclusive ps3 games I'll buy a ps3 to go with it. Why sell it and wait till next year to play a game wich probably will be better on 360. I would never want to miss out on xbox live with all it's community features, I hate the ps3 controller and the fact that it has no rumble. It's 360 all the way for me.
Besides ps3 hasn't got one exclusive game I wan't to play, so please stop with your childish fanboy behavior, ps3 lost a lot of exclusives to 360, but I'm not saying you should sell your ps3.

AngryTypingGuy3580d ago

Lolz, your logic is flawed. Most people are either console gamers or PC gamers. I for example am strictly a console gamer. I want to play Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc. on my TV in my living room. Regardless of whether PS3 gets Bioshock or not, the 360 has the games that I want to play, more so than the PS3.

Rooted_Dust3579d ago

I'd say Xbox360 is pretty much "PC Gaming Light", it's for people who don't have enough money or a uninterested in gaming on a PC.

gaffyh3579d ago

I'm sure I already heard this on a podcast or something (1up maybe), basically they asked the developers and the devs replied "we can't talk about the PS3 version of Bioshock yet", which basically confirms that it is ocming to PS3 and when asked why they said something about Microsoft helping them out a lot.

madmike3579d ago (Edited 3579d ago )

WHAT A MESSED UP SITE THIS AS BECOME MY GOD I OWN A PS3 BUT THIS NEWS IS A JOKE THINKING ABOUT IT ANY NEWS FROM THIS SITE IS A JOKE. YOU FANDICKS HAVE KILLED THIS SITE AND THE SAD PART ABOUT IT I BET YOU DON,T EVEN OWN A CONSOLE. YOUR JUST ROCKING IN YOU CHAIRS BECAUSE YOU FORGOT TO TAKE YOU DRUGS ILL COME AND TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SITE IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS TIME BYE yes i have got a ps3 also dasktop pc + laptop. psp xbox360 thanks i still think this site gone to s..t

Douche3579d ago

You don't really have a PS3. If you did, you be ecstatic of this news, if true. I've said long before that it was still gonna be on the PS3. I even had news posts approved over this and then bashed by xbots. It is just a timed-exclusive. Of course MS tried to make it sound like it was completely exclusive. It's business. Just as Sony is putting a lot of emphasis on "UT3 and Haze coming this winter exclusively". When said like that, it is kind of foreshadowed and can be misleading. Which is good for business. Except it has been made perfectly clear about those two, instead of BioShock. MS are making sure it has at least been released before others find out that it is multiplatform. BioShock is just one more game keeping 360's selling and MS will do w/e it takes to keep it this way. I remember that podcast, gaffyh, and that was all the more reason for me to believe this. That guy's sort of "You got me in a corner and I must think fast" statement of how MS has been a real help or w/e when asked about why they won't talk of the PS3 version was a hint at how they are being kept under wraps about it. Nonetheless, I can wait for BioShock. There are so many games coming out for PS3 with a steady pace in the coming months and I'm gonna be forking out a lot of money in the end as it is.

Douche3578d ago

I thought you left. "yes i have got a ps3 also dasktop pc + laptop. psp xbox360 thanks i still think this site gone to s..t" Go to English class much? Never heard of a dasktop pc, is it new? See you in two months man...hypocrite.

kingofps33580d ago

Time to add Bioshock to my list of games to play in my profile page. Hopefully, Mass Effect will follow. Of course! Too Much 2, 3 will be on the PS3.

Xeoset3580d ago

Bioshock is more than likely going nowhere.

Microsofts Money > Rumour.

Also:

Mass Effect = Published by MS
Mass Effect 2 = Published by MS
Mass Effect 3 = Published by MS

Too Human = Published by MS
Too Human 2 = Published by MS
Too Human 3 = Published by MS

Rooted_Dust3579d ago

And I don't know about Too Human, but Mass Effect will eventually come to the PC. Just like both the KOTOR games and Jade Empire.

hazeblaze3579d ago

I'd like to play Mass Effect... but we'll be able to play that on pc within a year anyway. Also, no publisher has been announced yet on Mass Effect 2 & 3 guys... Microsoft does not own Bioware, so they COULD make the 2nd and 3rd games for whoever they wanted to. However, their PS3 game is an all new title from what they've said so far.

As for Too Human... why would anyone want to play that game?! Haven't you seen the gameplay vids?! GFX look good but the combat looks horrible.

The Snake3579d ago (Edited 3579d ago )

A publisher often gets to keep the rights to an IP created by the developer. FEAR is the first game that comes to mind, as does Max Payne, Guitar Hero, Call of Duty, Gears of War, and enough others to make me think that's likely the case with Mass Effect as well.

Sevir043580d ago (Edited 3580d ago )

same with too human. so as for those thats it. bioshock on the other hand that might happen.

achira3580d ago

not so important, its only another overhyped fps shooter.

Xanatos3580d ago (Edited 3580d ago )

Halo is an overhyped fps, Bioshock i think is a must play game. I so wish for it to come to the ps3, one of the reasons i might get a 360 is this game + Fable 2, and Mass Effect.

Shadow Flare3580d ago

as in more importantly, what was they having for dinner?

Why_So_Serious3580d ago

bioshock is published by 2k games

Watkins3579d ago

Haha, that is sooo spot on! Bioshock is the only game (along with perhaps Mass effect, not all that impressed yet though) that the x360 has that I wanna play.

Is on a roll today, i hope they are sure about posting these rumors as they are putting their reputation on the line. They've been posting a bunch of bullsh!t lately..

However, if this is true, great for PS3 owners

BLACKJACK VII3580d ago (Edited 3580d ago )

"PSU must emphasize that this is still a rumor, and Take Two has not officially confirmed this with us yet."

Hey, if it does go to PS3, great. Exclusives are becoming a thing of the past unless M$ or Sony publish the IP. But this article has no basis in fact & admits it.

TriggerHappy3580d ago

Did anyone realize that the the official boxart does not have the only on Xbox360 tag ?

hmmm

BaMYouRDeaD3579d ago

@ Mercenary

I preordered the game from Best Buy 3 days ago, and the preorder box has the only on 360 tag on it.

Anyway, I already preordered it for 360, so even if it does go to PS3, it wouldn't matter. I normally get multiplatform shooters for my 360 because of rumble. Action games (DMC4) on PS3 because I don't like the 360 controller when it comes to the action genre.

Xeoset3580d ago

BAHAHAHAHA!!!

Damn, you really want this game so badly don't you? Just buy a 360 already, they're like PS3's, but cheaper and actually have games.

Bazookajoe_833580d ago

Don´t want this game, but good for those who do..

Hades13373580d ago

...which offers practically all of the 360s decent games. And anyway Bioshock just doesnt look anything special imo, but I am waiting to be proven wrong.

snakeater33580d ago

I'd have to agree with you xeoset ....the xbox360 IS frikkin cheap...so cheap infact that it breaks down more easily than a pc running on vista ;)
