BioShock: PS3 Data Found in .ini File.


"Look what some one found In the configuration file of the PC Demo of Bioshock: there are some notes for the interested about the game engine configurations options and there's a little topic about consoles.
;; Console (XBox360, PS3) specific settings

;; StreamingDynamicFloatingLimit:
;; If this is a positive number, then instead of using the fixed per-level
;; limits, the StreamingDynamic resource will use as much memory as is
;; available as long as the total memory allocated by the game is less than
;; the specified number. In other words, StreamingDynamic will grow and
;; shrink to fit to the available memory instead of being locked to a fixed
;; budget

You'll find this under Program Files/2k Game/Bioshock demo/Content/config.ini , just open the file with notepad or wordpad . Good news for ps3 fans although most already assumed the game was coming."

Please check for yourselves...

The story is too old to be commented.

Our developer from Valve who works for was first to find it. Here is the source:

It's not very surprising. The game isn't exclusive to begin with, seeing as it is on the PC. Microsoft paid them to keep it off the PS3 for a while, but considering how development was already in progress for the PS3 version, scrapping it isn't very likely.

BubblesDAVERAGE3955d ago

Its comming we all know that...this is just like when we saw the pc code for gears of war..they will deny then later on here it comes with extra content

FreeMonk3954d ago

that if Bioshock comes out on the PS3, that all the PS3 fanboys that have been slating the game and calling it will have a sudden change of heart and start loving the game!

Shame these guys can't see over there PS3 love, they are missing out on soooo much!

Having Configuration settings in your init file clearly show a ps3 version is bound. Which isn't really somethign totally new, considering its already cross-platform with 360/PC.


Odion3955d ago

or that its old code since why would the PC code have any of the console code.

It also says on the box only for Windows and 360

Marona3955d ago

Where the heck do you see "Only" in the box? I don't see it anywhere.

mccomber3955d ago (Edited 3955d ago )

It says it right at the top; please forgive the blurry picture, but you can definitely see it.

PS-Wii-603955d ago

Enchanted Arms on the shelf. The box clearly says "ONLY ON XBOX 360"
and THAT copy was sitting beside the PS3 version =/

Don't matter much to me, I already have my Bioshock for 360 and would have chosen this version anyhow (360 controller is best for shooters and it has achievements).

But, how many people are buying the game NOW who might have chosen a PS3 version if given the chance?

This tactic (if there really is a PS3 Bioshock on the way) does prove to me the importance of "timed exclusivety" especially if other console versions are kept under wraps until after the original launch.

Staircase3955d ago

Doesn't Microsoft do that to even timed exclusives? (I'm asking a question, i really am not sure) =)

mccomber3955d ago

I honestly couldn't tell you, but as PS-Wii-60 points out it was on the Enchanted Arms box as well, so...

pilotpistolpete3955d ago

I think they slap on "only on xbox" as a "only on xbox at this time", meaning you wont find it anywhere else for the time being.

Take that for what you will

IT will release on the newer version of Unreal Engine 3, after Sony's little engineers optimize the UE3 engine with Epic. I'd expect a Christmas 07 release to early 08.

InMyOpinion3955d ago (Edited 3955d ago )

I'd say christmas 08' considering how well the PS3 seems to handle the UE3 at the moment.

*edit - for those of you that did'nt get that, I'm thinking about all those delayed UE3 games for the PS3.*

jujunogo3955d ago

take a look at the case drawn up from 2k boston for spring release date of the ps3 version

Watkins3954d ago

So what are you saying? That Mark Rein lied when he said that UT3 was currently running better (on the PS3) than Gears ever did on the X360?

OMG 360 RUL3Z0RZ FTW3954d ago

Obviously, there is a delay because they have to rework everything so that the PS3 can actually handle this game. We all read the stories about how the PS3 is vastly inferior with cross-console games coming out. This is no different. I'm sure the developers realized this early on, and just threw their hands up and said "screw the ps3, we'll figure it out later." They then continued on to make the best game on earth and graced 360 owners with the best gameplay experiences they could ever dream of.

Prediction: BioShock will sell 8M copies, and make at least 75% of PS3 owners throw their consoles away, buy a 360, and then buy BioShock because they don't want to wait for 2K to rewrite all their code to accommodate the PS3. If you disagree with me, you obviously don't know what you're talking about.

i predict 11 excuses, 23 spins, 17 PS3 bashes not related to this article, and 25 people saying they won't believe it till they see it.

Snake_Doctor3955d ago

Add in a few explanations of how bad it will be in comparison to 360 version and about 750+ degrees and I'd say that prediction is about right.

WafflesID3955d ago

Kinda funny. you guys did the same thing with MGS4.

Violater3955d ago

Especially after Kojima has debunked that rumor,
And 2k has opted to "no comment"

[end sarcasm]

plastixblue3955d ago

A Fanboy commenting about fanboys. People like you The Mart,Dj and ALL fanboy trolls should be forced to watch Golden Girls for three days straight!

Non Fanboism FTW!
