So earlier in the week I rushed out the first 10 minutes of a BioShock 2 interview to make sure it got up well before release, only to discover that there was some…ahem…*mixed* b-roll for the game included. Unfortunately with the game only days away from retail, the team seems to be pretty much finished creating assets, so I got clearance from 2K to capture my own PS3 footage.
To make up for my flop on Wednesday, I spent my entire Friday capturing and editing BioShock 2 single-player footage, which I included in part two of the interview…and you can see it right here. Of course, I couldn’t get any multiplayer video (the game’s not out yet and no one’s playing!), but I believe this is one of the only places you’re going to find PS3 footage pre-release. The interview covers a bunch more of your questions, focusing primarily on multiplayer specifics, once again with 2K Games’ Melissa Miller and Hogarth de la Plante. So if you’re looking for a reason to get excited about next week’s BioShock 2 release, take a gander at the video. I’m already hooked…
