Sorry to diverge off topic here but you guy mentioned that the original Bioshock comes bundled with Bioshock: Infinate. Does anyone know if the game is going to come bundled on the disc (or second disc) or is it going to be included via a download code? I'm trying to decide weather I should Ebay my physical copy now before it loses all monetary value or just keep it.

 

Edit:

Sounds like a pretty good deal...

Usually I'm able to respond to the first 3 pages of comments or so within the first hour of a story's publish, but I'll usually need to tackle a number of other things throughout the day; then return to the comments a bit later on. However, all comments are always reviewed and taken into consideration when gathering the complete picture.

Most likely it will be a downloadable copy that comes directly from the Bioshock Infinate Blu-Ray disc. What that means it that when you put the Bioshock Infinate disc inside your PS3, you will see two icons pop up on the XMB. One for Infinate and one to install the origianl Bioshock on your HDD. Installing Bioshock will be like if you purchsed it from the PSN store, it will be in a compressed form when transfered to you HDD and then expand into an executable file when the transfer is complete.

 

In order to play the original Bioshock, the Bioshock Infinate disc must be inside your PS3, that way they can verifiy that you still own that game.

 

This is an easy method for Sony and other developers to easily add in bonus games on disc, without the developer having to program a new bootstrap menu for you to choose which game you want to play. It is all possible because of the increased storage space the Blu-Ray disc can provide.

 

Other games that use this same method of including bonus games include:

Metal of Honor

Dead Space 2

early copies of Assassin's Creed Revelations

Re: Sound Off: PS Plus 12/4 Update - BioShock 2

December so far is looking like another lackluster month for not being able to save money on anything. Puddle isn't a game I've had my eye on. The Rockstar collection only has a couple of games I haven't played (Midnight Club: Los Angeles and L.A. Noire), and I'm not particularly interested in playing either one. As for BioShock 2, I've purchased the game already before. It's a game that doesn't stroke my heart strings.

 

The first BioShock was kind of decent, but also not really my thing. The second one is more of the same, but of course I didn't bother attempting to go all the way through it. I won't be picking up BioShock Infinite soon or any time in the future, given my past experience with BioShock games. Basically you can say I'm not much of a BioShock fan.

Thanks for that, Logial Dolphin. I should hold on to my original copy for now that way I can use it on the go without any trouble.

I think it's a decent addition. I didn't get too far in the first Bioshock, so I wasnt' going to buy this one, but this gives me a chance to try it out. Don't really get people that buy every new game as soon as it comes out and then complain when a game hits PS+ that they already bought it.
