Update August 27: The day has come - BioShock is heading to iOS mobile devices at 8 p.m. PT Wednesday night. That's 4 a.m. GMT and 1 p.m. AEST Thursday for our international readers.
The game won't come cheap; according to Mashable, 2K Games is releasing the mobile version of the title for $14.99 (about £9, AU$16).
Also note BioShock for iOS is only compatible with the newest iPads and iPhones, so don't expect to start shooting 'em up on your iPhone 4.

2K has announced original and much-adored BioShock will be released on iPhone and iPad, and it's just a golf swing away.
With optimised touch controls and support for Made for iPhone controllers, the game promises to offer "the complete experience of the original", which launched all the way back in 2007.
2K's calling it a "premium priced mobile game" so while we don't expect it to be cheap, at least microtransactions are off the table.
