The PlayStation 3 version of BioShock Infinite does not include a copy of the original BioShock outside of North America, publisher 2K Games has told

"I can confirm that the PS3 version of BioShock Infinite in North America contains a copy of the original BioShock," a 2K Games spokesperson told us. "This is not the case in UK as it's a local promotion in North America."

2K announced earlier in the year that the PS3 version of BioShock Infinite would include a copy of the 2007 original on the Blu-ray disc.

At the time, the publisher did not confirm whether the promotion would be available outside the US.

The North American box art, pictured below, advertises the promotion prominently.

It is not known whether UK buyers will be given an equivalent bonus.

BioShock Infinite launches globally on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on February 26.

My Bioshock Infinite pre-order came with a code for the original.

Can't you pick up Bioshock for around a fiver anyway? It's a shame but I'm not sure it's a dealbreaker.

Great article to hopefully a greater game. How the review is laced with spoilers is beyond me, I'm afraid.

To illustrate the subtle nuances of the game and plot is not to ruin a game - it is to acknowledge the worth it has to offer. In blunt terms, was frogger spoiled by knowing that it's about a frog crossing a road? Is Bioshock Infinite spoiled by knowing it's punctuated by moments of insight of the world in which we and our progenitors inhabit and inhabited?

It's gonna be a rental for me or catch up later in the year anyway but I hate it when they don't give you the offer outside America etc.

May as well not bother with it.

Can't say I'm feeling as much desire for this title as I did the original... even though the setting looks like it could be fantastic. Here's hoping it is a little more open than Rapture was...

I'd prefer a copy of BioShock than Move compatibility.
