We figure a few of you are still worried, despite the fact that some will only say, "geez, it's logical to assume that a Bioshock sequel would be multiplatform!"
Earlier this week, Take-Two Interactive issued an estimated release calendar for 2009, and everyone leaped all over the "TBA" platform listing next to the title, Bioshock 2: Sea of Dreams . Immediately, the Xbox 360 fans wanted to assume that Microsoft may have purchased another timed exclusivity deal, although there was little evidence to support such a theory. Thankfully, though, the publisher has confirmed with MTV Multiplayer that the hotly anticipated sequel is scheduled to hit the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Now, as we don't yet have an exact release date, there's still some speculation that a timed exclusive release for a single platform is possible, but as far as we're concerned, it's extremely unlikely. When the original Bioshock released, the PS3 was still in the early stages and Microsoft could purchase a temporary "360-only" deal simply because the user base of Sony's machine wasn't significant. Come the latter part of this year, there will be 25+ million PS3 units circulating out there, and 2K simply can't afford to pass on that crowd, even for only a short time.
As it hasn't been officially confirmed, we won't sit here and tell you that Sea of Dreams will absolutely launch simultaneously for all three platforms, but we will say it's a damn good possibility.

GOOD! I was afraid that M$ was gonna secure a timed exclusive deal (at the least). Bioshock 1 was awsome, this one is a day 1 buy for me.
Take 2 isn't stupid. The low user base for the PS3 version of the Bioshock was in protest to timed exsclusive to begin with.
Well it also probably didn't help that the game was priced at the full $60 – especially in an already crowded season of games – when other cheaper alternatives existed on the PC/360 side… if it weren't for a Gamefly sale and some coupons I had while renting Bioshock (got it for $27 brand new in all), I wouldn't have bought it for awhile.
Since then, the game has dropped fast in price, too, hovering around the $30 to $40 range.
This is good news. Now hopefully they build the game on the PS3 and port over to the other systems.
hah i love how the wii never sees even downgraded versions of these games 😛 all the best games are on the ps3 and 360 😛
you mean all the games!:D
Now whose losing their exclusives?
You're avatars just kill me! hahaha!
I have never even played the first Bioshock before, but when I get a PS3 I plan on getting it. I have seen what the overall gameplay looks like, I have heard a bit about the plot line, and soon in about 3hours I will get to play it and actually feel how everyone else felt in Rapture. Yes…I'm download the PC demo. I can't wait 'till I get my hands on it, although it might be a demo it's still something that I can play with. But wow 1.8gb for a demo. I guess I've download too many PSP demos to be surprised by that number lol.
