It looks like BioShock’s ‘exclusive’ downloadable content is getting it’s own set of Trophies. A PS3Fanboy tipster has sent in the list, which includes all but one of the trophies that gamers will be able to enjoy when the DLC gets released next month. Hit the jump for the list. Continue reading


2K Responds To PS3 Bioshock Worries by Steve

As a follow up to Ryan’s post concerning some questionable graphics in the PS3 port of Bioshock, 2K have moved quickly to put the minds of owners of Sony’s console at rest by issuing the following statement to members of their official forums

Hey guys,

First, I want to thank you for the acute attention to detail and the Spartan level of expectation our most devoted BioShock fans hold us to, and how excited you are and attentive to the BioShock PS3 demo. When we saw a post asking about issues found in the demo, we jumped on it immediately. And you know what, you’re right. The texture in the PS3 demo of the downed Big Daddy does not match our level of quality either. This slipped by. We admit it. However, I want to assure you that this is an exception, and not a rule, and while I regret this oversight, we put a lot of love into making this game look amazing for the PS3 and I’m sure that when you play the rest of the demo you will agree that the textures are not all like this one instance.

As for the other issues and concerns, we are currently diligently working to replicate any bugs, and will report back to you with what we find. Thank you for your vigilance here and moving forward.

Isolated incident or widespread problem with the game?  Bioshock is a thoroughly enjoyable title and one that PS3 owners who’ve never experienced before should definitely check out, regardless of the odd dodgy texture.

The Incredible Bioshock is being ported to the Ps3. We know this. But it should have a graphical overhaul right? RIGHT? Well, recent screen shots beg to differ. Don’t believe it? Hit the jump and see for yourself. It just doesn’t make sense. Continue reading

Today seems to be the day for announcements. 2K have officially unveiled the full list of trophies for gamers to grab in the PS3 version of the highly acclaimed FPS BioShock. The trophy list is apparently very similar to the achivements seen in the Xbox 360 version. There are some new trophies included for the newly added survival modes included in the port. Hit the jump for the trophies, but please be aware the list does contain some SPOILERS (hence why i’ve copied and pasted it rather than read it and typed it). Continue reading

Word comes in from Cult Of Rapture that us PS3 owners will be getting a demo of BioShock. The demo, coming over PSN, is going to drop on the 2nd of October. I have no idea if this is worldwide or if we’ll have to resort to downloading the demo from the U.S. (like I had to with FIFA last night).

This means I, like many others, will be able to experience the game for the first time before the game releases in late October.

BioShock PS3 Has 10 Minute Mandatory Install by Anthony Barlow

I’m really looking forward to BioShock coming to the PS3, but this latest announcement (curtosey of Dtoid) has put me off a little. The game features an install. No big deal right? Wrong. The install is 5GB, a pretty hefty install especially for someone with only 7GB of space left on his PS3’s HDD.

I personally don’t mind installs, but when they’re this big I wish I could opt out. A new HDD was a must buy anyway, looks like I’ve been set a date now.
