PS3 BioShock gets new movie and play-test

There’s a new promo video of the upcoming PS3 version of BioShock after the break, and a first look at the new SKU on Eurogamer. Snip:

The PS3 has struggled in the last year to climb out from under the weight of poor third-party ports, and the many logos and acknowledgements that greet you when the disc first hits the Blu-ray drive are a testament to how fiercely 2K has fought to avoid the grim censure of that accusation. Once again we’ll defer to our more forensically-minded Face-Off department for the final head-to-head judgement, which you should be able to read around the game’s 24th October release, but early impressions of this last-minute build are as technically strong as the ones we formed when we first journeyed into Rapture last summer.

And that’s good news if you miraculously are able to face BioShock for the first time, unburdened by foreknowledge of what you’re about to play through, because however it makes you feel when you’ve fought your way to the end of it, Rapture is the sort of place videogames are seldom capable of sending you, and the PS3 deserves a shot at it.

BioShock hits PS3 on October 24.
