The writing has been on the wall for some time that Take-Two would be releasing its award-winning BioShock on Sony’s PlayStation 3. Speculation that 2K Boston/Australia’s praised dystopian shooter based on the literary stylings of Ayn Rand would land on both current-generation consoles was sparked by the game’s initial announcement for “PCs and next-generation consoles.” However, tangible evidence didn’t come until the game’s launch in August, when a reference to BioShock on the PS3 turned up in a demo for the PC game.

The possibility of BioShock zapping PS3s was further fueled in April, when BioShock 2 developer 2K Marin indicated that it was hiring level designers that had experience developing for Sony’s flagship console. Today, confirmation of the game’s PS3 debut has finally arrived by way of the cover of the July issue of UK-based gaming magazine PSM3. (The news on the cover was spotted by Computer & Video Games.)

Remembering back to previous reports, a Bioshock movie is also in the works.
