The first piece of BioShock ‘exclusive’ downloadable content is coming to the PS Store on November 20th. 2K’s erie underwater shooter BioShock recently got released on Sony’s console to much acclaim. This DLC was announced shortly before the game was announced and, although they could have included these on the disc, I think it’s great 2K want to support the PS3 with these ‘rooms’. Hit the jump for the details. Continue reading

2K have announced that the PS3 version of BioShock will be getting it’s own exclusive downloadable content in November. The DLC in question will come in the form of ‘Challenge Rooms’. Which will include various puzzles, tasks and whatnot set in the undersea world of Rapture.

The DLC is coming on November 20th, there has yet to be a price announced for the game but I doubt it’ll be too much.

2K are going to issue a patch to fix some of the graphical issues people are seeing in the PS3 port of BioShock. Today they detailed said patch revealing two of the things that would be fixed by the update. One of 2K’s communty managers, going by the name 2K Elizibeth, posted this partial list on the official BioShock forums today:

  • Fix for an issue where large blocky pixels would show up whenever viewing the Bouncer and Elite Bouncer variants of the Big Daddy.
  • Fix for an issue where white/discolored bars would show up at the right and bottom sides of the screen during the plane crash / water scene at the beginning of the game.

There are some other problems that are going to be fixed and, although there’s no ETA on this patch yet, we expect it in the coming weeks.

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.

For all of you PS3 owning gamers that never got the chance to play the ridiculously well made Bioshock, the wait is over. The game has finally gone gold, and is now being manufactured. Honestly, I don’t care if its not your type of game, you’re going to play it, and you’re going to love it. And the fact that this one has trophy support, and an extra mode compared to the Xbox 360? If you own a PS3 and don’t buy this, just set your damn console on fire. It’s going to waste. It comes out on the 24th in the UK and the 21st in the US. Buy it.
