Game Head's Geoff Keighley says there is a new trailer coming and:
"In addition, the trailer debut will close with a surprise announcement by Game Head's Geoff Keighley. You won't want to miss this!"
cmon don't add to the flame war.. geez.. it just said special announcement
You're right. Sorry. I thought it was PS3 version after the jump since Kotaku had "Special Surprise Inside" above the title. Updated.
But what else could be the surprise announcement be?
i hate announcements for announcements... cool game, lame announcement.
a DEMO announcement is not surprising
announcing it for ps3 would get a lot of people excited than just announcing a DEMO
That is it. End of story, they will show people on TV playing the demo which will come the week following.
Don't hype this too bad people, it might not even be a demo but just a guy playing it with new footage.
Alot of hearts will be broken on Sunday.
I wonder what it is??
When is the trailer soming?
I think its either the PS3 version we've been hearing about or a surpise multiuplayer/online/coiop mode (Or as AznSniper said, a sweet deom). Either way, Cant wait for all of them: The trailer, the announcment and most importantly the game itself.
this on PS3! Wonder if this is when they will announce it.
They're not, idiot. It'll be a Demo.
Have you already been told what it is? I don't think so. Hush up and be prepared for the worst. I would like this to come to the PS3. It's either that or I fork out the money for a 360. Ha ha, I had you going there didn't I. If I ever decided on purchasing the 360, it would have to be the day of BioShock coming out. If I'm lucky, that'll leave me with about a week to play the game before my inevitable meet with The Ring Of Death. Muah ha haa!
PS3 version announcement or 360 demo announcement
Edit: If you disagree with me, then give me your opinion.
a ps3 version wouldnt realy be the right kinda of announcement, it will be something related to what is already here (pc/360) so it will prob be a demo or multiplayer info.
It's more likely a PS3 anouncement than a Multiplayer or demo anouncement, time is money and the quickest anouncment would be "coming to PS3"
I don't really see how people can jump the gun so quickly and say it's a demo or a ps3 version. I mean those are both possiblities but couldn't it simply be something else? Nobody knows for sure so stop acting like ya do!
That would be weird
I know its rather weird and unlikely but I can't stop thinking of how cool a co-op on Rapture could be. Perhaps if the game sells are good enough, we could see co-op in a patch/update, expansion or the sequel.
The world of Rapture is being built for a single player experience. The player is meant to feel alone and isolated (it's part of the whole "mood" of the game). I think multiplayer would greatly change this, one of the main points of the game (at least that's what the devs always talk about). Well, that's my opinion.
Well spoken. Completely true. This is a true moody and atmospheric game. Personally, I always prefer singleplayer and I'm big fan of non-multi games but playing with Bioshocks great AI and echology with another friend is still hard to pass.
But I do believe that the game must be experienced the way it was intended and this could be the singleplayer experience of the decade. (Yes, I'm crazy about Bioshock)
we dont need the trailer the game is almost out
There will be no multiplayer mode (99.99% sure). They are focusing on the single player to make it the best it can be (which is obviously turning out pretty damn good).
I think it will be an announcement for the demo.
Edit: @ Kuest
lol, sorry. But remember, a game doesn't need multiplayer to be amazing. Just look at Oblivion! IMO, it's better this way. It means the campaign won't be a let down like some games when their attention is split between two modes.
but, yeah, your probably right. I'm expecting a demo of the game.
I agree, Bioshock is defintely one of the heavy hitters for 360 (regardless of whether or not is has MASS appeal)
Whats with the disagrees?
More games should take that route. Instead of throwing in some multiplayer that feels tacked on (like the darkness), just focus all your time on making the single player game the best you can. I'm really looking forward to this one. Atmospheric fps (doom 3, fear, half life2 etc) are my favorite genre.
It looks great, but i'm confused???
PS3 version or demo imo
I don't think a demo anouncement is ever a suprise anouncement from devs...
I think its something to do with the game itself...nothing to do with the PS3 at all
People actually believe the crap they spew on PSU?!
They're gonna announce that they have caught a chupacabra and will
show him in a cage in LCG...
How is he supposed to release the Star Wars PSP now?! =0
Woah, a bunch of games coming out, and come tomorrow, Bioshock will be on that list :) You 360 guys had your fun pretending Bioshock was exclusive to 360 and GFW, but now get ready to PLAY B3YOND fellow PS3 users.
THIS IS LIVING
Losing exclusives, delays on AAA multiplatform games which in turn equates to being time exclusive for the 360, lackluster online network infrastructure, overhyped games like Lair getting underwhelming reviews??? Well, I won't agree with you about "this is living" although I will agree that this is life as Sony.
losing exclusive :- GEARS is now coming to PC.
MGS4,FF13 are all ps3 exclusives and those are the only exclusives that matter.
you are talking about garbage box 360 that has 100% defect rates/sold just 8 million units despite having a 1 year headstart and sells like trash in EU and JAPAN.
ps3/ps2/psp all are murdering x360 in terms of sales all around the world.
that garbage box 360 with aslow paced shooter like Bioshock is all it has. Dont bring up cartoon Halo 3 and mass effect.
with a 2$ dvd drive and 2d text achievemnts on LIVE you are comparing yourselves to us who have a next gen BD drive + HOME +TROPHIES + all the big games.
LAIR got 9 on both EDGE and PLAY UK.
LAIR has 20x more polygons than any trash box 360 game.
EGM reviewed 1 year old build. PLAY and EDGE reviewed the new build.
dont compare your garbage box 360 games with LAIR.
we have LAIR,HS,R&C,GT5,HAZE,UT3 ,WARHAWK ,UNCHARTED + 63 other games all coming out this FALL.
ps3 has 8 great exclusive games coming out this FALL vs just 3 gmes on x360 -- GAYLO 3 and mAS EFFECT with cartoon graphics and BIOSHOCK which is also on PC.
On 12th you would find out that it is coming for ps3 as well
Mate, stop kidding yourself.
No, this year, 360, is beating the living crap out of the PS3. Next year you'll have 2 games to shout about, and probably some more will come out along the way.
You're an idiot. If you feel so insecure with your purchase that you have to come on sites like this and make it sound oh so awesome then i sugest you spend more time thinking about what you want.
So, long story short: This year, 360 has a better game line up than PS3. Period.
Get over it, you'll get some next year.
Wow. Simply wow. I still can't get over the fact that people like you actually exist. Although your walls of text riddled with psycho babble are amusing, why don't you just stick to playing your PSTriple and leave intelligence to the real gamers.
And no, before anyone thinks otherwise, I'm not associating PS3 to a lack of intelligence.
Just in case you didnt know, Microsoft is the operating system that PCs are using, plus when talking about losing exclusives, PCs are not in the conversation. If that were the case, you could have argued that Halo went multiplatform a long time ago. You may smack yourself now.
You relaly getting annoying.
anywya, I think its a demo for the 360
Multi player downloadable modes. Retail disk will launch with downloadable add-on packs like GTA4 later on.
If it is a PS3 version on the way its somethings not in development due to the fact they said they havn't even touched a PS3 when its comes to this game(yes a port or a built from the ground up PS3 version is possible due to the fact BioShock i hear was wrapped around 360's hardware).
at the end of the trailer?
maybe its just smth with the story we dont already know
but i hope its a demo
heyy maybe its just one of those announcments that no one cares about just to get site traffic
If there is a PS3 version you won't hear about till next year
I'm not gonna say if Bioshock will/will not come to the PS 3, but I am almost certain that it will not be revealed NOW in the midst of its release for the 360. As Odion said, if it is being considered for multi-platform- it will be announced sometime next year.
To the idiots who think they will be announcing a PS3 version you must smoke some good stuff...you actually think Microsoft who is obviously paying for this title or for the timed exclusivity would let 2K announce a PS3 version is coming, BEFORE the game is released? Are you serious? C'mon guys think.
damn I have been playing RB6Vegas recently, my f'ing whacked out mind can't stop mentioning "Stack up for Infiltration" after seeing your avatar.
Lol! That's funny as hell
Really? I guess thats possible but only being three weeks away isn't really standard for AAA's although this does give the game time on XBL to garner hype it is alittle different maybe they think its a good idea to release a demo before the launch for max profit.
Good games really do better if people are playing them before they launch.
it will be out the 14 instead of the 21 of august. or a ps3 version.
some pretty hefty claims, my friend. But who knows?
If you are certain Bioshock is coming to the PS3
THen it's also certain MGS4 will be on 360.
Denying is making you look stupid
Bioshock is said to be 360 and Windows Vista exclusive.
no. just no. Does Bioshock has a strong successful background on Xbox? No. But MGS has it on PS.
Its different you XBOT. Bioshock developer was quoted with Gamepro saying that they are only focusing on XBOX 360 and Windows right now, but that's basically saying it may be a timed exclusive. Konami had their doubts at first, but then came out and announced it was an exclusive at E3 and then Sony's Peter Dille stated to Gamasutra that they signed an exclusive deal with Konami to bring MGS4 EXCLUSIVE. Even Peter Moore said MGS4 is PS3 exclusive, to Kotaku. Ever noticed how no one from MS ever said "we signed a deal with 2K, Bioshock is a permanent exclusive?" No right? Yeah, thats because its not!
is an exclusive (developers have it announced just for the 360, but have also never denied the possibilty of a PS 3 port), but I do agree Mart that its chances of being ported over to the PS 3 are slim. I think eventually it will boil down to how well Bioshock does on the 360.
Wrong, MGS history is:
MGS2 was on XBOX also.
Peter Moore stated it in X06: Bioshock is exclusive on MS platforms 360 and Vista.
Loudninja (below): MS exclusive. Console exclusive for 360, Vista for PC.
There you go.
I think we can all agree that when Executive heads are showcasing their product at a special expo (in this case X06), there probably apt to spin certain truths. For example, at this years E3, Jack Tretton (I think thats how you spell it?) stated that UT3 and Haze were EXCLUSIVE to the PS 3. He did not mention that it was a timed exclusive. The same case could have been for Peter Moore as well.
right now, what we know for sure is that Bioshock has been announced only for the 360 and PC. the developers/publishers have not yet stated whether or not Bioshock is EXCLUSIVE- and its the developers voice that counts.
PS3 comes in mind
Do you even know what exclusive means?
Why wouldn't Sony strike a deal with the devs to announce a PS3 version durring the E3 window when all eye were on the gaming industry.
Why would MSFT if" under contract arrange the timed exclusive to end right before the release of their own version?.
It's possible the devs said hey! we havn't even looked at PS3 the whole time of the BioShock development but lets make a PS3 version and we'll announce it right before the 360 release and instead maxing out profit on the 360 version first we'll make a PS3 version wher people that havn't purchased a Next-gen console yet" will wait it out instead of Buying a 360 NOW for the game.
HAs anybody heard of this type of logic from any devs before?.
"BioShock Surprise Announcement...Bioshock is not really coming out it was a practical joke we guys did at the company cuz we were bored...pretty funny uh?...guys?"
I wonder how will people react to something like that
Its just the announcement of a demo on XBL
And Sony fanboys are thinking a Bottleneck 3 version will be announced.
why don't you call it "Playstation 3"
are you really that jealous?
lol, like a child in 3rd grade.
trust me MARTY ... it feels so much better if you own more than just the 360.
i'm just havin' fun with my games, no matter if ps3 or 360.
Bioshock isn't gonna hit the PS3.
The special announcement will be about special packaging or something stupid.
True. It's always like that. I think I've never seen a ''special announcement'' that was really that special.
Just what they need to build upp hype. ;)
I dont think a demo would be considered as huge announcement now will it?Let's hope they are announcing the ps3 version.
Here's a theory: What if they're announcing that Bioshock will be a 360 and PC exclusive? Hmmmm......
Just a thought.
They won't announce a PS3 version, especially not in some trailer released between two huge events (E3 and LGC).
Sony would have made a BIG deal about it on one of these events.
Further more, they are not going to announce a PS3 version when the 360 and PC version are about to release. It would only hurt sales and thus would be incredibly stupid.
Also, IF it was coming to the PS3 sometime next year, they'd still wait with an announcement because it would damage potential 360 sales.
MS would've made sure Irrational kept it quiet untill atleast some time after the game launches on the 360 and PC.
My guess is that it's some kind of a lame announcement like a special edition box or whatever.
A Sequel? PS3 Version? Expansion Pack? More Free Stuff?
I reckon the announcement will be that it requires a hard drive to play
that will be a wonderful sweet surprise. nah I doubt that.
Maybe they'll announce a Wii version...
I was thinking a SNES version.
