There is a patch already in the works that is going to address that issue. Is the white bars there as well during the underwater aftermath from the plane crash?

Return it, must be a crappy port.

=\

I sincerely hope a few visible pixels on one Big Daddy on one scene of the game doesn't detract from your opinion of the game. I'm about 4 hours in and loving it. And as mentioned, it's going to get patched. FailedEXE, I didn't notice any white bars in the game, but I didn't notice them in the demo either so take my answer with a grain of salt.

Don't worry about it. I got the game yesterday. I thought there was already a patch but my internet connection was down and I couldn't download it. I couldn't wait for my connection to recover to begin the game so I dove in. My connection returned today (obviously), so I went to download the patch and discovered it wasn't there yet. Bottom line - It doesn't matter. Great game. I do get a feeling at times much like I got playing Half Life 2 on The Orange Box, and it's the feeling that I'm looking at a slightly outdated engine. Not as obviously outdated as HL2 of course, but still, every once in awhile I just have that thought. No patch will fix that, but I'm well past the offending Big Daddy and I can say it's one of the coolest games ever. Not perfect, but very cool.

I got the demo about 2 days ago, and I purchased the game yesterday. I have yet to play it yet though *check out the COD4 Killed my PS3 thread for details*. Keep me updated

this game is great, i played i when i had a 360 (was the only game i thought was really worth getting a 360 for, Geow wasn't bad either, not enough to keep it though) but anyway since these little issues are being patched i would definitely recommend it to anyone

I lol'd. You also get bonus points for not indicating your sarcasm, which would have blown the laugh for me entirely.

I can't believe you guys are surprised, who did not know these faults were making their way to the retail game? Wasn't it enough 2K told everyone they were disappointed in it themselves? Well they did say they'll patch it, you'd think after 14-15 months the retail would have been patched though.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to graphics and i have not noticed anything bad about this game? i guess i'm to distracted by the sheer awesomenicity of the game and the fact that the pixelated image happens to be trying to kill me, and is quite successful at that!!!

Haha, nice one. I agree, is it THAT big of a deal? They said they would patch it for you picky types, and that is what they are doing. Just be glad that they have actually FOCUSED on us PS3 players and are giving us equal love in gaming.

LOL!!! that was great man. Clearly the people complaining about Bioshock's graphics on PS3 don't remember how the multiplatform games looked when the PS3 launched, progress has been made.

I don't see why people are so bothered about something so small...

"would you kindly" just continue the game without paying so much attention to detail.

You won't "get" the above sentence... not yet anyways.

enjoy the game mate and splash his pixelated-***. how can he be so indecent?
seriously now, try not to mind that. it will get fixed anyway.

Lol, I rented the game 2 days ago and just got to this part.

I don´t know how the graphics fared in 360, but my first impression was that it could be better.

Still, an awesome game, never thought I could have this much fun with a FPS.

One or two texture mistakes and all of a sudden everyone puts down an amazing game :pale

"Would you kingly" LOL, i just got up to that part a few minutes ago, great twist.

I think that people have really forgotten what PS2 games look like.
To have this quality and detail of art design, at this framerate, with these visual effects is really a beautiful thing.
I ain't complaining. No-suh.

I was loving this game, until I found out dying has no consequences, and now it is just pretty easy. I also got dead space yesterday and Far Cry 2 today, and they blow this away, so I will come back to it later on.

I know I might get called crazy, but I actually stopped playing Dead Space and Silent Hill (which both are awesome games) for Bioshock. I am not far into it but it already feels like a masterpiece of a game that I won't stop playing until the end (I only tried the 360 version once and I am farther in the game now than I was then).

About the patch, I am 99.9% sure it hasn't been released yet. I believe the date for that is either today or tomorrow but I don't have a source handy so don't take my word for it. I'll have to do some research.

On a side note, if they never released a patch I'd still say the game is great. I think it is a extra bonus that 2K is going to fix some of these minor graphical issues.

I'm not complaining about the damn game

I really couldnt care less if they create a patch or not

a patch just for 1 tiny anomaly?
