Last week when the box art for Bioshock Infinite was unveiled, many PS3 gamers were ecstatic when they saw they would also be getting Bioshock for free. Unfortunately, those outside of the US, your glee is short lived, as 2K Games confirmed that option is only for US citizens.
“I can confirm that the PS3 version of BioShock Infinite in North America contains a copy of the original BioShock,” a 2K Games spokesperson told Videogamer. “This is not the case in UK as it’s a local promotion in North America.”
Sorry, non-US Rapture fans, looks like if you’ve missed the boat, you need to scour your local game store bins for Bioshock. But let’s face it, if you haven’t experienced all Rapture has to offer by now, what are you waiting for? Bioshock Infinite launches February 26th, 2013, go get all caught up!
