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 VideoGamer.com.

"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.
