Last week we reported that BioShock was coming to the PlayStation 3. Today 2K Games officially confirmed that report, indicating that BioShock will ship for the PS3 in October.
Adding to the intrigue, though, 2K Games said that BioShock for the PS3 will be a “genetically enhanced” version.
Initial indications are that the enhancements will include the downloadable plasmids and other content released for the Xbox 360 and PC versions. But 2K Games’ announcement implies that there may be even more than meets the eye in that regard.
In addition to calling the PS3 version a “Genetically Enhanced” version, 2K Games said the PS3 version of BioShock “will be released in October 2008 with new features and content that heighten the award-winning experience. … BioShock’s extension to the PlayStation 3 system will bring exciting new content to this amazing title and reach many new players, while giving the title the opportunity to once again be named Game of the Year.”
Normally re-released games, even if they appear on another platform, don’t garner new game of the year awards. So is this version really offering something different above and beyond the Xbox 360 DLC? 2K Games isn’t specifying just yet, but we’ll let you know when details surface.
