"We've just learned from 2K Games that the PS3 add-on content will be available for download starting November 20 for a price of $9.99 in North America only. Just a few more weeks to go."
Exclusive to Ps3
It's a shame
I don't trouble myself with DLC so this doesn't bother me too badly but I have to say that for a year old game, why was this content not included in the retail version?
Would never buy DLC. It should have been on the disc being that it was full price for a 1 year old game
The game just came out, it SHOULD of been on the disc. Enough nickle and diming us..... Isnt it enough you are making $10+ more a disc this gen.
Pennywise you took the words right out of my mouth........literally! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Total joke. I love Bioshock, but I'm not putting 10$ on some "puzzle rooms" that the developers were to lazy to put on the disc. It's got enough replay value with the trophies. I'll probably trade it into Blockbuster at some point anyways...
They weren't to lazy. That's fully intentionally. Just milk gamers a bit more. Well, if they game would have sold for say $39 or $49 I could imagine, they'd actually would have sold a couple of PS3 versions...
would you really spend 10 bucks for challenge rooms? PSN has much more worthy stuff you can spend that 10 bucks on! Go buy HVB Go buy Eden this is a joke im not buying this game till i see a part 2 and im sure as all helll not spending 10 bucks on challenge rooms
I hope no one buys this to 2K gets a clear message from gamers: you (or anyon other game company) won't explore us! 60$/70€ for a year old port is bad enough already, and now they want even more money just some weeks after releasing the game even though that DLC should be in the game disc in the first place? Piss off!
PSN has other stuff you can buy for 10bucks that are more value then some silly puzzle rooms! they want to make money on a year old game...well this guy wont bite they can blow me if they want my 10 bucks
...They couldn't put this on the disk...why?
But then they couldn't charge us an additional $10 for it.
Who said it isnt on the disc? lol ripoff!
Should have been on the disc. Noway I am buying it.
yo FBI, you really must not have a freakin life do you? you come to n4g and bad mouth anything xbox360/Microsoft related. well f*ck you and SONY, both of you have 1 thing in common... both of you TALK ALOT OF BULLSH&T AND CANT BACK IT UP. go sack on sony's balls you f**kin sackF*ggot!, your a loser and i hope your freakin SACKSTATION 3 gets stolen. you know xbox is better quit freakin hating on it, you have no life, you don't go to college, you sit on your windows 98 pc drinking milk and cookies all day refreshing your internet explorer v.7.0 hoping to find another xbox article to sh*t on. well go sh*t on your SONY shrine you made in your bed room and leave use xbox people alone....LOSER!!!
I like you. ;)
Squall are you serious? You yell at FBI for being a sony fanboy, and you turn right around and show how you are a microsoft fanboy. I just don't understand any of you fanboy type. Always contradicting yourself.
Says the moron with one bubble. I mean, do people really expect anything when they go on a rant about somebody like FBI. lol, letting those people on the internet get to you is pathetic.
Was he talking about me??? ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D Yep!!! I to can't stand Micro$oft and the xBox 360 and their Stupid FanBoys on this!!! ;-D I'm happy to say it, and i'm happy people know it to!!!;) Maybe he should say the same thing to 'pp'???(PS3/SONY wise) Just a thought;) BioShock PS3 Add-On Content ONLY ON... .____....____....____ |.......|...|................ .| |____|...|____....____| |...................|........ .| |............____|...____| ;) PLAYSTATION®3規格ソフトウェアのゲー ム 中にXMB™
Like the others said; should have been on the disc. A year old game, a somewhat shoddy port, and its priced like a brand new game. No deal.
than pay for this. I will never ever purchase a DLC. this should have been on the disc, in fact how do we know its not already on the disc and we are just buying an unlock code. for the fact that this a year old game, priced at full retail price, this should have been included in the disc. Criterion has showed us that we should never ever pay for DLC.
Criterion are developing pay-for DLC for Burnout Paradise if you didn't know.
Including the bikes.
Does anyone know when the patch to fix the textures will be in? I saw some horrible textures in the game, but overall it didn't mess up my experience. Playing through it slowly, but I gradually progress. =)
They're coming out with the patch for the textures on the same day: November 20th.
isn't a shoddy port, as it's been enhanced graphically & in terms of content (well, slightly)for the PS3. But since they demand full price for a year old game that should have been released at the same time as the Zbox version, then i'm not bying this DLC. Not at this price at least. The game itself is expensive enough, and this should have been on the disc from the get go.
Where the hell's the patch to fix the crappy graphics? No patch, no purchase.
Crappy graphics? Do you not keep up with news at all? They fixed all of those issues before release. If there is a difference between the 360 and PS3 versions of Bioshock, it's negligible at best.
It's not a rip off, the game retails at £30. This is 25% less than the retail price of any new PS3 game. And this game is totally worth buying. So if you want the DLC, fair game to you, you get it, and if you don't, enjoy your cheaper game.
This is getting out of hand. These companies are douing this because @ssholes are keep buying this stuff. Like NFS Pro-street, $2.99/car. Battlefield Bad Company $9.99 for a weapon pack that came out the same day the game released. Yoda on Soul Calibur 4 sells for $4.99 plus the costume packs are $9.99 I belive. Don't buy crap like this. If you wanna buy an expansion off of PSN the get Shivering Isles for Oblivion. With S.I. you will get your money worth.
Costume packs are 2 or 3 bucks and it's only about 8 pieces of armor/cloths you get with each one.
so it's not even worth it. Figures... jsut like a single car for $2.99 in Pro-Street
When I found out Bioshock was coming to PS3 I was happy. When extra content for the PS3 version was announced I was thrilled. When I found out the PS3 version would be priced like a new game, I figured it wasn't too bad due to the extra content being talked about. When I found out the extra content wouldn't be included on the disc (even though the PS3 version was priced about $20 more then the current 360 version) I decided to pass on it...
I'll put that $10 towards Valkyria Chronicles.
2K could've just included in the actual PS3 Game but they have to be greedy....sorry no thanks for DLC for 10 bucks.
This is silly for DLC..a couple of weeks after release then DLC for 10 no thanks!
This seriously looks like about 10 minutes of added gameplay. $10? Give me a f*ckin' break!
One must ask;Will 3rd party developers continue to develop for the Xbox 360? All signs point to ''No''
Looks like MS isn't the only one who charges for content that should've been on the disc.
MS just buys exclusive DLC. Plus, I doubt Sony is even involved in this (if that's what you were hinting at). This was clearly 2K's decision. Edit: Actually, Sony may have been involved. I don't know, so I can't dismiss it. I wonder why this is exclusive to the PS3. They should have put this on the PS3 disc, and offered it as DLC to XBL (giving the PS3 version added value for being a year late, while still offering it to the 360 for added profits). Maybe there are size restrictions or some other issues for the 360, or maybe 2K wanted to give people a reason to buy the PS3 version, just to nickle and dime them further with the DLC. Maybe its just a timed exclusive ploy by 2K. Either way I won't be getting it. I may rent Bioshock after a few months for the trophies, but I'll never touch the DLC.
I never said Sony was involved. I mean that people accuse MS of charging for DLC when the developers want it to be free, but as you can see, both consoles are charging for content, so maybe MS isn't to blame for everything
didn't they say that PS3 will be getting exclusive stuff within the disc but later switched to DLC? I may have confused it with something else probably, just need clarification. Still I think they should have included it for free in order to give it a higher value and draw in more PS3 users after like a year. Well, in anycase, it's still a good game, and I speak mostly of its story which I liked very much.
Did it not fit on the BR?
Buying extra content for an inferior version of a game that's been available on the 360 for more than a year. That must feel good LOL!
uhm wow... so i paid full price for a yr old game.. now they wanna charge $10 extra for some DLC.. uhm.. yea no thanks moving along
People like to talk a good game but when it comes down to buying games.
This is just pointless and instead of trying to sell dlc for a one year old game that has several issues why not do that for free, or include it on the space provided by the Blu-ray disk. And if they want to sell something through the PSN why not do a mini game which is related to the original game eg. Ratchet and clank: quest for booty. There are several ways you can make money but this is just the principles of extortion.
it's a "no buy" for me.
wow...ps3 has a bluray, and 2k said it themselves that it didn't prove to be beneficial in the conversion of this x360 game. ...but couldn't they have at least put it on the disc??? i mean im sure there was plenty of room left on it!!!
so I will be supporting the developer on this DLC. I look at it in the terms of extending a unique gaming experience that I fully enjoyed. I want to check out more of the world of BioShock and when compared to a ticket to the cinema this is a bargain, IMHO. Yes, they could have slightly lowered the SRP on the disc, but they are in this to make a profit. I see my $9.99 (in a small way) going towards the development of "Sea Of Dreams". [-NBCraftsman]
