Product Overview:
Considered to be one the finest games in the history of interactive entertainment, BioShock is a watershed entry into the world of video games. As one of the most lauded franchises in the past decade, BioShock introduces gamers into an exciting world filled with fascinating characters, intelligent enemies and complex moral choices that define the foundation of the game world. With its rich story, meticulous attention to visual detail, tense action and infinite replay value, BioShock delivers the perfect blend of storytelling and first person action. Developed by 2K Marin, 2K Boston, 2K Australia and Digital Extremes, the PLAYSTATION 3 system release brings forth new features and content that expands the world of BioShock in new and exciting ways.

Story Overview:
Barely surviving a plane crash, the player lands in icy uncharted waters and discovers an undersea city called Rapture, a failed utopia whose citizens had embraced genetic engineering before the city descended into pure anarchy. Power and greed have run amok and the city has succumbed to civil war. Fans have embraced BioShock’s mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. BioShock is also renowned for its rich visual detail depicting a gorgeous Art Deco world set deep beneath the sea.

Features:
• All-new PLAYSTATION 3 system exclusive content: In addition to the original revolutionary game experience, PLAYSTATION 3 system fans can enjoy a brand new difficulty mode – Survivor – as well as enjoy Trophy support as they explore Rapture. And the experience doesn’t end there – all new exclusive BioShock downloadable content will be available only on the PLAYSTATION 3 system after launch
• Choices and consequences: Make meaningful choices and mature decisions, ultimately culminating in the grand question: do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture…or save them?
• The world is your weapon: Take control of your world by hacking mechanical devices, commandeering security turrets and crafting unique items critical to your survival
• Weapon upgrades provide ammunition for every situation: Upgrade your weapons with ionic gels, explosives and toxins to customize them to take advantage of your enemies’ weaknesses
• Gameplay that evolves around your playing style: Customize your experience by genetically modifying your body through dozens of Plasmid Stations scattered throughout the city and turn your body into the ultimate weapon
• Adaptive AI provides challenges around every corner: Explore a living world where the inhabitants have interesting and consequential relationships with one another that impact your gameplay experience
• Immerse yourself in Rapture: Experience breathtaking visuals that vividly illustrate the forlorn Art Deco city, highlighted by strikingly realistic water effects and meticulously detailed environments

Everything looks to be in order. I still haven't played this one. If the DLC is enough to convince me I may make my first experience with the full game on the PS3.

Whaaaaaaaat?!

Even if the DLC is balls I still hope you get this great game. One of the greatest worlds/atmospheres ever created in a video game.

Sarcasm much? If the DLC isn't free, the 'new stuff' in the PS3 version was compltely hyped up. I'm sure PS3 owners won't mind paying a little extra if it means they get extra missions though.

This is a brilliant game on both the 360 and PC so PS3 owners should be thrilled that they'll finally get a chance to play this sublime game, which was IMO the best game of last year.

If the PS3 packed a alternative not "suck balls" ending, then it's a version to consider.
If not, remains a bone thrown to PS3 only users, nothing more.
Other than that, people are gonna get the late "works, but it's not quite on par with the other" version port, as always.

no it isn't. Exclusive DLC on a multiplatform game, unless its something like character models or something, is terrible. Like Gears of War on PC having all that extra campaign stuff. Its bad business to do that. Its like discontinuing a product that lots of people use. No more support for all those people. I get that they need a reason for people to by the PS3 version over the 360 version, but it's still stupid. I am hugely happy for all the PS3 people who will get to play this. If only they could get Gears and Fable and Halo! And I am glad we are getting FF =) But I want my LBP!!!

I wanna look at the reviews before actually buying the game. I already finished it on PC, so it has to be very improved for me to buy it again.

Haha, I can see where he's coming from though. If you have already played this game, DLC isn't enough for you to pay full price for this game. If you have never played it however, that's another matter.
