    uhhhh, considering that the entire story/artwork has already been fleshed out for the PC/360 version it would be a waste of money to change any of it really, nothing will change imo.

    From a technical standpoint, they didn't do too badly on PS3... I don't think there is anything to worry about from a gameplay point-of-view. The game has already been made and just requires porting. With one game already on their belt for PS3, surely they'll be able to do a decent port.

    Since i don't have an Xbox 360, nor a high end PC that can run BS at acceptable quality level, i'll be picking this game as soon as it hits the store.
    I just hope the graphics and framerate will be as good or better, then on Xbox 360.

    Wasn't Dark Sector 576p on the PS3?

    Google seems to think it was 1152x640P.

    Heres hoping bioshock is 720P.

    right, and it made little difference... both games were virtually identical. not too sure of DE's background before DS, but i'd say they did relatively good for their first game on PS3.

    as for BioShock, early screenshots are 720p if thats any indication of what the game will be.

    The recent screenshots showed some hit on the textures and normal mapping. Hopefully they arent representative of the final quality

    There hasn't been a non-720P UE3 game yet. I would assume the work is porting the non-UE3 special effects.

    Why would they do anything other than that for a port? The only thing to be worried about is if the visual fidelity and performance carries over in the port. Especially the performance. Bioshock is a rare game on x360/ps3 in that it actually keeps a consistent 30fps without tearing and if you disable v-sync the game reaches 60fps.

    Did you not like it technically and graphically, or did you not like it gameplay-wise, story-wise, etc.? ...because it's not like they're going to be involved in that last part. (Even whatever minimal additional content may show up would, I'm sure, be created and adjudicated from 2K's end and passed through Digital Extreme's coding arm.

    I didn't like the gameplay or the controls . Technically I had no problem with it except some effects seemed overdone. But I feel that way about most games nowadays. As long as 2K does the final tweaking I'm happy.

    I hope they also add Home support as rumored here:

    Cool, if not totally unexpected, news on the Trophy support.

    For what it's worth I personally don't think it'll be "Home ready" at launch. I mean a Bioshock Home space as some are speculating and Home items unlocked through gameplay. Fingers crossed though.

    Rumor about extra content:

    It would be great, if the port will actually feature a new level and opening video.
