European Version Of BioShock Infinite On PS3 Won't Feature Original Game

PS3 owners in Europe miss out, as promotion only extends to the US.


BioShock Infinite is the third mainline game in the series, due out in early 2013.
Whilst 2K have previously announced that PS3 copies of BioShock Infinite would also get the original 2007 game included, this appears to not be the case in Europe.

Speaking to VG, a spokesperson for the company said “the PS3 version of BioShock Infinite in North America contains a copy of the original BioShock” but that this “is not the case in UK as it’s a local promotion in North America.”

BioShock Infinite has been delayed at least once (and has seen a good number of changes to staff and structure since its announcement) with the current release expected next February. It’ll feature Move functionality across the board, but sadly only the US will get the full bundle deal.

The full Songbird edition of the game, featured here, includes a whole host of other stuff.

      We are getting Batman AC so I think we win on that count.

    I don’t think this should trouble that many people – Most sensible people will have played the first two before delving into this one.

    …& if you haven’t, now would be the time – They are dirt cheap & great games.

      I’m on my second play-through of the first now! On the Apollo Heights level in fact, just where the difficulty spikes…

    That would be annoying if it wasn’t for the fact that I bought off PS Store for £6.99.

    I don’t need it, have platinum for the first one (seriously, play it already, it’s one the greatest games ever) and also own it on Steam, but it’s still a bit frustrating to not be getting as much as the Americans.

    Even though it’d make no difference to me…

    Oh God, I’m greedy and entitled, aren’t I? :(

      Yep – It’s entirely THEIR fault. *rolls eyes*

      Seriously, did you even read the article, or is this your daily tourettes outburst?

      Most awesomely misplaced anger of the day. Hell, finish it off by punching someone random in the street. Perhaps someone far, far bigger than you. :-)

    Awww damn I was looking forward to playing Bioshock again. Oh well, I’ll just buy it dirt cheap instead.

      Yeah, you should be able to pick it up for somewhere between £5-£10. Which is an absolute steal for a game of that quality.

    No big deal. I actually didn’t even know about this promotion in the first place.

    That is a bit crap but you can pick it up for a fiver nowadays so it’s no big loss. Plus chances are it will be included in a PS+ deal near the time of release.
