(NASDAQ: TTWO), announced today that the demo of BioShock™ is now available on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

BioShock is a "genetically enhanced" first-person shooter that lets players do things never before possible in the genre - turn everything into a weapon, biologically modify your body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques.
The Xbox 360 demo introduces gamers to BioShock by inviting them to explore the world of Rapture, an underwater utopia torn apart by civil war. While immersed in the decaying art deco city, gamers can experiment with the various weapons and plasmids, as the captivating storyline unfolds. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically modified "splicers" and deadly security systems, players have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounterever plays out the same and no two gamers will play BioShock the same way.
