Bioshock and Eternal Sonata worth getting on the PS3?

As the holiday season approaches us, many publishers will start bringing out the big guns in a span of three short months. This October the PS3 will receive a couple of games Xbox 360 owners have had a chance to play last year. With Bioshock and Eternal Sonata releasing on the PS3 next month some gamers may wonder if these two titles are worth getting among a sea of great games.

Are they worth getting? Yes.
Are they worth getting on the same day little big planet comes out? NO!

Anton Chigurh4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

I already finished Bioshock and eternal Sonata . but the PS3 library need these types games cuz
first, they don't have enough JRPGS
second, they got only one good exclusive which is MGS4 (above 90 in meta)

@ below

I don't see any JRPG title ??? besides I'm talking about this winter not 2009

Rick Astley4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

Luckily for me I have a job and here are all the games I'll be getting in October:

1. LittleBigPlanet
2. Motorstorm: Pacific Rift
3. Soldner-X (PSN)
4. Dead Space
5. Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm
6. SOCOM: Confrontation
7. BioShock
8. Far Cry 2 (Limited Edition)
9. Fallout 3 (Collector's Edition)

That's right. 9 games in October. *Wipes tears from wallet*

omg....If we go by what Meta critic says.......GTA4 is the best game ever made and no movie on EARTH is get over that little piece of supporting info.

@ Hi def LOL....Good stuff.

HighDefinition4661d ago

GTAIV the best game ever MADE!!!!



HighDefinition4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

All the games he list are in OCTOBER 2008.

2009 on the PS3 is WAY better than that!


cahill4661d ago

All the games he listed are coming in 2008 October
I know it is puzzling to see PS3 have so many games but things have changed
Undoubtedly PS3 has the best gaming library this Fall

VF34EJ254661d ago

Movie Critics I swear are worse than game reviewers.

They don't like anything!

mfwahwah4661d ago

I don't need numbers on metacritic to tell me what a "good exclusive" is.

I've played Uncharted, Warhawk, Heavenly Sword, and Resistance. They are good exclusives.

How did I arrive at this conclusion? Simple, they were fun, and well made. *GASP* Shocking, ain't it?

Omegasyde4661d ago

Are they worth getting? Yes.
Are they worth getting on the same day little big planet comes out? NO!
Are they worth getting this year? NO!
Are they worth getting before purchasing Motorstorm 2, Valkirie Chronicles, Socom, Resistance 2, Fallout 3, Wipeout HD? NO!

Now heres the tough question,
With a small update on graphics in Bioshock (PS3), will it look better than Deadspace and Resistance 2?

What a stupid question. So I guess since I only have a PS3, and these games are already out for the 360, I should go waste 520 bucks on an Xbox and these two games because I'm just bursting with so much excitement that I can't wait a couple months.

IzKyD13314661d ago

he was referring to the people with both consoles

Killjoy30004661d ago

Well then in that case, I guess I'll get the ones with additional content and cleaner visuals.

LastDance4661d ago

I am so excited for bioshock. I remeber Playing it on my cousins Xbox and was just in awe.

InMyOpinion4661d ago

If you don't mind paying full price for old games they are totally worth getting.

Rick Astley4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

But who are they old to, exactly? 360 owners? There are other people in the world, you know. Most of us waited because we knew BioShock would be coming to PS3. Those rumors started hitting a year before the game was even released and look what happened. We got it with exclusive content + better water effects. Say it's old if you want to but PS3 owners are getting the definitive version of the best rated Xbox 360 game currently available. You couldn't spin this even if you tried.

Killjoy30004661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

Bubbles, Rick. That was just beautiful.

Rick Astley4661d ago

Thanks. Here's one for you too.

IzKyD13314661d ago

well put rick, Unreal Tournament 3 for the 360 came out like 8 months after the PS3 version, and it was also full price

InMyOpinion4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

"BioShock PS3 vs. Xbox 360 Comparison Video"

Better water effects? The only difference I see in that video is that the 360 version has a slightly better framerate.

And then there is this PS3 exclusive feature:

"BioShock PS3 has 5Gb, 10-minute mandatory install"

Well, have fun with your imaginary water effects. Whatever makes you sleep at night.

Rick Astley4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

I don't need to lie to prove a point.

And great comparison there. How the hell are we supposed to judge a blurry, low res comparison video? ROFL get real dude. IGN has played both versions on HDTV's. You haven't. That's all there is to it.

The gaming GOD4661d ago

Since you want to go all fanboy and try to mention the negatives of the ps3 version of bioshock, why not list the positives too

-All the 360 versions content
-Additional levels
-Additional weapons
-Home Support
-Survival mode

And to fanboys on BOTH sides, you'll always see graphics and framerates in your preference favor.

ActionBastard4661d ago

Rick's point is very valid. It's futile to argue with him. He's never gonna give it up.

IzKyD13314661d ago

"Rick's point is very valid. It's futile to argue with him. He's never gonna give it up."

lmao! nice

MazzingerZ4661d ago

It must be hard to see 2 more X360 "exclusives" disappearing from that list...X360 great exclusives is now reduced to Halo 3 and Forza 2 if we take into account the games released during the last 18 months...the rest can be found on PC and PS3...the PS3 doesn't have the same "problem"...there're a lot of titles that can REALLY only be played on won't see Resistance 2 on PC next year like Gears 2 will be

Blademask4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

First he starts off saying why on earth would anyone want an old game for 60.00. Faced with the fact that it is all new to a ps3 audience. The audience that more than likely doesn't own a 360 and hasn't played the game before.

After he gets owned on his main point(the entire reason he replied) of why would anyone buy an "old" game, he then goes after the WATER FX comments made and the INSTALL for the PS3 version. For what you ask? Will the potential customer buying this for their ps3 who doesn't own a 360 care? More than likely not. To top that all of many sources including the developers have said that the ps3 version will be improved, as it should seeing as how there has been so much time to improve on it.

So Jenzo once again, comes in here.. states a flawed point, gets owned, Then decides that because there is an install, hes not going to buy it. Which I'm sure you weren't going to do in the first place?

If anyone is on this site that feels the need to justify themselves, its the person who isn't interested in a product, coming into the story, and declaring how disinterested they are in the product. Wouldn't you say Jenzo?

Jenzo, heres the reality:

The PS3 version of Bioshock is coming with more content than the 360 version did.

The PS3 version has an Install to reduce loading times.

You aren't buying Bioshock for the PS3.

Many people will, that had enough of a life to be able to wait for a game release. Much like the UT3 fans for the 360. Old games released as new is nothing new to consoles. You should be used to it after shelling out 150 dollars for Halo2.5.

You would make more sense if you just came out and flat said "I hate that the PS3 is getting bioshock, it annoys me because im a loser." Or else, why would you even bother commenting?


InMyOpinion4661d ago

Aren't you they guys who said "I don't need this 360 game, I'll just get the superior PC version instead."?

Then why get the PS3 version now if you've already have the PC version? If you are so obsessed with graphics why not skip the PS3 version and go for the superior PC version instead?

VF34EJ254661d ago

"I hate that the PS3 is getting bioshock, it annoys me because im a loser."

Bwahahahaha I bet that hurts Jenzo pretty bad. It's okay though, the 360 is getting FFXIII. That's a nice little band-aid for Jenzo's wound.

Blademask4661d ago (Edited 4661d ago )

The PC version is better than the PS3/360 version. I never beat bioshock on the PC however. It got boring due to the vitachambers.

Now on the PS3 w/trophies its worth the purchase.

But are you still going to sit here and continue trolling? Or are you going to pretend that I didn't say anything to you 2 comments above?
If you aren't interested in getting the PS3 version, or even own a PS3. Why are you here trying to talk it down?

The reason the PC comments were made is because like all good 360 "exclusive" games, they are on the PC. So when You or your girlfriend TheMart come out and try to talk up the library in PS3 threads, i'm sorry, Reality has to chime in. Its to remind you that it isn't an exclusive, since I don't need to purchase a 360 to play the game. Also, Im not obsessed with graphics. Gameplay ALWAYS comes first. Luckily with the ps3 you get good gameplay and amazing visuals. Which is better than good gameplay, and average visuals that a mid-range pc can run. I love seeing stuff like in MGS4, which im sure you didn't play. But it really makes you feel like "JESUS CHRIST" we are moving forward in game development. The sheer scale, range of textures, lighting, animation is all second to none. And it enhances the game. There are moments in that game to where your jaw is just on the ground looking at the game. You have to remember that you are in fact playing a game.. and you have to shoot back at those guys shooting at you :). You don't get that experience at all on the 360.

So feel free to respond to my comments, or just go ahead and ignore them in true troll fashion.

UNCyrus4660d ago (Edited 4660d ago )

hahah, I wondered for a second why I had you ignored.... *sigh*

andron4660d ago

I ordered from, and full price for most PS3 games there are usually 55.99 Euro.

But Bioshock cost me only 41.99. Maybe it will be less than full price when released everywhere.

Both games are genetically enhanced and with added extra content.

They were great games to begin with but the extras makes it worth buying for.

If you are an RPG fan starving for WKC, you might want to check out Eternal Sonata PS3. Its not a 9 out of 10, but definitely a 8 out of 10 worthy.

Bioshock is 360s GOTY 2007. Its a massive pwnage in the face of the bots to lose this baby. This game is a solid 8.5 out of 10, you wont go wrong with this title.

So much content for the PS3 this holiday season and beyond. Yummie yummie. So much content, so little time.

marionz4660d ago

actually loseing bioshock isnt a slap in the face to 360 owners at all, its a great game and i dont think anyone would complain about it going to ps3, i have no problem with games going multiplat, anyone who hasnt had the chance to play this has been missing out on one of the best games around
