2K Games press release:
2K Games Announces Release Date for BioShock® for PLAYSTATION®3 System

Genetically enhanced PLAYSTATION 3 system version of BioShock to debut in North America on October 21

New York, NY – August 19, 2008 – 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), announced today that BioShock® for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system will be available at retailers in North America on October 21 and internationally on October 24. Developed by 2K Marin, 2K Boston, 2K Australia and Digital Extremes, BioShock for the PLAYSTATION 3 system contains all-new content that augments and extends the experience in exciting ways.

“We are proud to introduce 2K Games’ showcase title, BioShock, to an entirely new audience,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With the addition of the new Add-On Game Content we are able to extend the award-winning adventure while maintaining the perfect harmony that millions of players around the world have fallen in love with.”

Headlining the list of new features is the inclusion of the Survivor difficulty mode, Trophy support and the addition of all-new Add-On Game Content. Created exclusively for the PLAYSTATION 3 system version of BioShock, the Challenge Rooms will test the mettle of new and seasoned gamers by requiring them to utilize the knowledge and skills they have learned while traversing the halls of Rapture. The first Challenge Room will be viewable by appointment at Games Convention 2008 (CCL, Level 0, A02/1 + A02/2) from August 20 to August 24 and will be available for download shortly after launch.

BioShock is a narrative-driven action experience that allows players to do the impossible as they journey through an amazing, immersive and terrifying world. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically mutated citizens, the player will come to grips with the mysterious and fascinating world of Rapture, a distinct Art Deco underwater utopia gone mad. BioShock not only challenges players’ capacity to adapt and survive, but brings to question their values and relationships with the inhabitants of Rapture. With smart and adaptive AI, no encounter ever plays out the same way twice, while numerous customization options provide gamers with an experience that adapts to their playing style.

BioShock for the PLAYSTATION 3 system will be available at North American and international retailers on October 21 and October 24, respectively, and is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. Available now on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and Games for Windows® platforms, BioShock was the recipient of more than 50 Game of the Year awards from well-known outlets such as the Associated Press, Game Informer and Paste Magazine.

This has to be from an old build right? Not impressed at all! Drab, jaggies and low textures are the main elements here that stick out as a real sore!

And i thought I saw these same pics a few months ago... I swear!

The very funny thing that keeps my mind so disturbed is the fact that PSX and IGN network have claimed that the PS3 version of Bioshock looks much better than the XBox 360 version. I kid you not... if developers are able to improve, visually, on a title like Bioshock than the PS3 has truly so much more in store for us. It is hardly imaginable to improof on a strikingly beautiful looking game like Bioshock. Sure, if you compare the PC version to the Xbox 360 it wins hands down but this is understandable... Dirext X 10, super graphics card etc, etc.

Sure the PS3 is capable of so much more but to port a game instead of building it from the ground up is a totally different thing. And to have a team work on Bioshock that isn't the team that worked on the Xbox 360 certainly have the odds against it.

If what IGN claimed is true about the visuals than we certainly are in for a great surprise. Bioshock on the PS3 will be even greater that Resistance 2 qua experience. Even visually it trumps the latter, much anticipated titles.

But let us wait and see... this is not the first time that IGN claimed a fact that later wasn't a fact but a mere impertinent observation of getting the community all riled up again!

But, seriously... no matter the outcome... Bioshock will truly be a great experience for those whom haven't had the privilege out playing in on the Xbox 360!

Something definitely seems off about the graphics. If they can throw in some awesome special features though it really doesn't matter. I've never chosen which version of a game to buy based solely on graphics. In due time they will all look crappy.

Holy crap people, check out some 360 images, Bioshock has NEVER looked good it stills. Seeing as IGN have played it personally and said it looks BETTER, I take their word over yours.

EDIT: lol at jaggie noters, the 360 version had no AA, neither does this. Like I said go look at some un-touched up 360 shots.

Bioshock's textures were always low res. The lighting and atmosphere is what really made it look impressive. I see no difference in these shots.
