An errant line of code in the PC demo version of blockbuster videogame Bioshock had the internets all aflutter over the possibility of a PlayStation 3 version of the underwater art-deco simulator. We hate to bring you bad news, but it looks like it's not in the cards.
Game blog Joystiq called Bioshock creator Ken Levine and asked him point-blank: Is it happening? Here's how the man answered:
"I promise you, there is no secret plan about the PS3 that we're keeping from people. There's no PS3 development going on that we're hiding. There's lots of stuff that gets into game code, plans change over time and we got an exclusive deal with Microsoft ... that's not a Rosetta Stone discovery."
Levine also addressed the problem of the DRM cripple that came with the price of the PC version. Basically, you could only install the game twice. Levine admitted that this was a mistake.
He said the copy protection limit locked in for PCs will be raised. He also says they will remove the online verification in the future, and that it's the other games use the same protection program.
