Recently, a website called Maxconsole posted what they claimed was a scan from the most recent issue of OPM UK that seemed to depict Bioshock running on a PlayStation 3. There was much jubilation from the owners of the newest Sony console, as the game was earlier reported to be exclusive to the Xbox 360 and the PC, and the game library for the $600 megaconsole is somewhat lacking. It took only moments for the story to hit Digg with the force of a thousand hurricanes!
Sadly, Kotaku stepped in to ruin everyone’s good time with the worst medicine of all: the truth. It seems that the scan was, in fact, from the September issue of that magazine and for those of you who can count, September was almost four months ago. As it turns out, the original article from those many moons past was merely wishful thinking and there are no current plans to release Bioshock on any platform other than the PC and the Xbox 360. While this doesn’t rule out the possibility of a future port, it certainly leaves many Sony fans crying softly on the theoretical shoulder of their large black friend.
This isn’t the first time that this mistake has been made, and we assume that in another three months we’ll be telling you the exact same thing (but next time, we’ll use diagrams and sharp sticks).
