BioShock PS3 Gets Patched, Arrives After Launch

The PlayStation 3 translation of former Xbox 360 exclusive BioShock picked up a few bugs along the way, but they've been ironed out and a patch will reach players after the game's October 21 release.

"I have good news from the dev team about a patch for BioShock PS3!" exclaimed 2K community manager Elizabeth Tobey in a forum post. "They have been working on a patch to address the concerns some of you on the forum have talked about."


The forum users in question were distraught over some visual bugs found in the PlayStation 3 port of 2K Boston and 2K Australia's shooter, which originally launched on the Xbox 360 in August 2007.

"As work is in progress I do not have a definite date for when this patch will be released as it needs to be tested and clear certification with Sony before it is scheduled and released," wrote Tobey. "I do know this will not be until after the game's launch," she added.

The PlayStation 3 edition of BioShock lands next week, but a demo is available now.
