for those who just picked up bioshock infinite, can you guys tell me how the game looks and plays on the ps3?  I just want to make sure it runs well before I drop 60 bucks on it.

Plays, looks, and sounds incredible! Its already my game of the year an hour into the game. I'd be playing still but I got class early tomorrow. Definitely recommend this new masterpiece to the PS3 library.

Unless you're struggling for money, this is just wrong. I try to support real developers when I can. Granted I haven't played the game yet and cant stay the game is awesome from my personal opinion but all these reviews cant be wrong. This is the reason we get sequel after sequel folks.

I just bought Bioshock Infinite for only $39.72 (after tax) at kmart.... The cashier automatically gives you $5 award card, you automatically get $10 shop your way reward points and I double stacked that deal with another $10 reward coupon receipt.

Plus, you are automatically getting Bioshock 1 in the deal as it comes with Bioshock Infinite. If there are games to pay for, this is it. Lot of bang for your buck. You don't have to pay $60 but you don't have to wait for bargain bin price if you look for a deal.

looks fine on ps3 i dont see why its getting hate. Yes it looks better on a new pc but ps3 is 7 years old come on now.

bioshock 1 & 2 ran great on ps3, cant wait to get my copy :cool:

#9 Posted by truegamer92 (197 posts) -

hey, I just got a chance to see the game and honestly, I think it looks great.  I don't know what everyone is complaining about.  Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty sure pc looks tons better but I think the ps3 is doing a masterful job considering its age.  I'm getting it now!

Personally, I think the graphics on it are kinda weak after playing Tomb Raider and GoW:A. But it is a very good game. I'm having fun with it.

Thinking of getting this game too but I haven't played any Bioshock games ever. Do I need to the first two to understand this game and if so whats the best way to get them. I was looking to download infinite off PSN but I'm not sure if thats the best way since buying all three games seperately would be over $100 on PSN.

Infinite is a different game with different characters and setting and stuff. It has the same flavor as the other Bioshock games though. But no, you don't need to play the others first. If you buy the physical copy of Infinite, it comes with Bioshock 1 for free, which is also a great game. That's basically all you need, because Bioshock 2 was kind of a rehash of the first one without any new ideas or anything. If you play 1 and Infinite, and are interested in Bioshock 2, you can pick it up used at Gamestop for $10 or less I think.

i loved the firs bioshock and finished it, but halway through bioshock 2 i was kind of bored and never got myself finishing the story... the first two games share the same location, more or less the same mechanic and other than a few tweaked enemies same roster... i have bought but not played infinite yet, but as far as i know the plot and the setting is independent from the previous titles...

I am about 5 hours in and can safely say this game is just mindblowing.

Why the doubts? Original Bioshock was fantastic and the second game also run beautifully on the PS3. Maybe putting a little less faith into fanboys opinions will help you keep a clear mind in future. ;)

Awesome I just scored a deal on a PS3.  I was thinking about building a PC mainly for this game but the main difference I'm seeing in comparison videos is higher resolution textures/lighting and that's PC on ultra compared to PS3 so I'm sure console is mediumish settings which is impressive.  

#19 Posted by Rioichi21Cooper (240 posts) -

I pre-ordered my copy for £29.99 at Tesco, which is a bargain compared to buying a digital copy on PSN for over £55 in my opinion. I haven't been on it yet but from I've seen it looks beautiful on the PS3!

Gorgeous without doubt one of the best looking games ever Columbia is massive and a joy to wander round.

I actually just beat it, go buy it now! I cannot express in words how satisfied I am with the game. On all aspects, fantastic.

#22 Posted by truegamer92 (197 posts) -

thanks for the feedback guys!  I just bought it.  Gonna play it tonight when I get home from work.

Framerate?  Any screen tearing?  How many hours did it take?  What difficulty do you suggest or did you play on?  Sorry for all questions I ordered my PS3 so won't be able to play till at least next week.

#24 Posted by BH14 (1763 posts) -

I got the game yesterday.

I can't wait to try it out with the PS MOVE.

I bought the Bioshock: Ultimate Rapture Edition earlier today for $30, then this evening I bought Bioshock: Infinite and found out that it came with the original, lol. 2 quick questions guys 1) Is the Bioshock included with Infinite a download code or is it on disc (I havent opened the game yet, lol) 2) Should I replay 1 and 2 before jumping into Infinite? Are the stories connected or not?

Really? Im not picking up Gears of War: Judgement for a while (No Xbox Live atm), but I could easily go buy it now if I wanted.
#28 Posted by DaRq_MiNoS (566 posts) -

1) Bioshock 1 is on the disk.

2) You don't need to play the earlier Bioshock games. This story actually occurs before the other Bioshocks, and they're not connected. Different characters, different city, different story. It's just got the feel of the other Bioshock games with the kind of weird hidden utopian city thing going on, and with the gameplay.

#29 Posted by Spartan_N7 (581 posts) -
Ah alright. I might just jump into Infinite then, lol.
#30 Posted by chocolate1325 (32595 posts) -

Beat it and I can say you must play it the game is one of the best experiences of this gen.

#31 Posted by HipHopBeats (2719 posts) -

Got mine for only $13 brand new after 2 trade ins. Definitely worth it for PS3.

I just want to add and not trying to spoil anything.............. but knowing Bioshock 1 is nice for one small tiny segment of the game.
#36 Posted by blueboxdoctor (2423 posts) -

I had to get it for Xbox (they were out of preorders for the ps3 premium edition) and it looks pretty good and plays well.  Sure, the PC one will obviously look better, but by no means does it look bad, and I'd imagine the ps3 version looks the same as the xbox one.  Definitely an awesome game and worth playing no matter the platform.

#37 Posted by Crossel777 (5724 posts) -

I paid £50 for this game off the PS Store including a £15 season pass and I do not regret my purchase what so ever.   The game looks amazing on the PS3.   A lot of reviewers and people in general have made out the console versions to be vastly inferior than the PC versions.  Which might be true but the PS3 version certainly holds up well graphically, framerate is very smooth for me.

Well after watching an elaborate comparison the XBOX 360 does not screen tear but it gets a lower average framerate and more dips then the PS3 but the PS3 has screen tearing so its really a toss up between the two.  I got mine for PS3 and will have to wait till tomorrow to try it out.  PC mainly has better textures and from far away there really isn't a difference consoles did a good job and manages 720p native.

Played around at a friend's, it looks awesome. I will get it on the PS3
#41 Posted by trav_have (5620 posts) -
I bought it yesterday. It looks and plays fine. Amazing game, I'm only about an hour into it. Obviously the PC version will look way better though. The PS3 is dated by now.
#42 Posted by Mrmedia01 (1917 posts) -

PS3 has the best versions of Bioshock for the complete series as far as consoles go. Of Course PC has the best versions.

#43 Posted by truegamer92 (197 posts) -

I've been playing it for the last couple of days and so far I'm liking it.  The graphics are good but I think they could be better.  Although the gameplay is great I feel like the low rez graphics take a little away from the experience.  i hope it gets ported to the ps4 with better graphics.  I wouldn't mind buying it again.

This game is worth well more than a bargain bin purchase.
#45 Posted by WonderfulTonite (95 posts) -

Well I just played it and I can say the game looks amazing.  The shadows are smooth and the game is the most vibrant I have seen.  Sure some textures don't look pretty up close but it is one of the best looking, most artistically, crafted games.  Don't know why the reviewers (especially ign) nagged on the console version and claimed it didn't cause the amount of jaw dropping that Bioshock did in 2007, when in fact my jaw hit the floor and stayed there.

What makes you say that? Are you more of an expert than Eurogamer's Digital Foundry on the matter?

Is K-Mart paying you? Just kidding but seriously my local K-Marts deals suck.
