2K Games has announced that the PS3 version of Bioshock has gone gold (which means that it is ready to be manufactured, and thismuchcloser to stores). Those of you who can’t wait till late October to grab the game will have to be satiated by the demo, which will be hitting the Playstation Network this Thursday.

If you missed out on the Xbox 360 or PC iterations (what’s wrong with you?), this is the one to own. It’s going to have a couple of new features, such as a Survivor difficulty mode which will put you against even tougher enemies, and Challenge Rooms that will be available as DLC and force gamers to utilize all sorts of plasmids and skills to survive. The game will also contain Trophy support.

October 21st is when North Americans can grab it for themselves and see what all the hype was about, and why Bioshock was the best game of last year.
