BioShock PS3 Rumors Resurface
Rumors are still circulating about whether or not BioShock will be ported to the PS3 in the future. Kotaku listed a few lines of code spotted by gamers in the PC demo’s config.ini file that certainly appear to beg the question of 2K’s future intentions for BioShock.

If this is a positive number, then instead of using the fixed per-level limits, the StreamingDynamic resource will use as much memory as is available as long as the total memory allocated by the game is less than the specified number. In other words, StreamingDynamic will grow and shrink to fit to the available memory instead of being locked to a fixed budget
GamePro claims to have an inside source that confirms it would be “wrong to think the game wouldn’t be released on Sony’s console at a later date.”
However official word from the 2K Forums is still a definitive no.
There have been no announcements from 2K or Irrational Games that BioShock will be ported to other systems.
Are PS3 fans destined to be disappointed, or is 2K taking a cue from Sony and biding its time before making a big announcement. I personally believe it would be a shame if BioShock doesn’t eventually port to the PS3. It could only be a winning move for 2K if it does, bringing more fans and more money in for a terrific game.
