Bioshock for PS3 will be "genetically enhanced"

dnaBioshock, the critically acclaimed horror/sci-fi adventure game will have its day on the PS3 as early as this October, but not only that, the PS3 version of Bioshock will be "genetically enhanced." Well, they do it to cows, plants, and chickens, so why not video games too?

What this means to PS3 gamers are that they’ll either be treated to more powerful plasmids in the game or see new ones added.

According to Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K games:

"Since BioShock for Xbox 360 and Games for Windows won countless 2007 Game of the Year awards, we are excited to see the impact of this stellar title for the PLAYSTATION 3 system when it debuts this fall. Over the coming months we look forward to revealing the new features and content that will make this a must-have game for its new audience, as well as for those who enjoyed it on the other platforms."

Apparently this is a 180 degree change from the 2K stance they issued last year about Bioshock for the PS3–that there wouldn’t be one.

Ken Levine, lead designer said in August 2007, "I promise you, there is no secret plan about the PS3 that we’re keeping from people. There’s no PS3 development going on that we’re hiding. There’s lots of stuff that gets into game code, plans change over time and we got an exclusive deal with Microsoft…"

Perhaps what this all boils down to is dollars and cents. The PS3, which was almost proclaimed dead last year, has made a remarkable comeback. And with the spoils of success come the games. And in this case, it’s Bioshock.
