Bioshock Infinite Developer: We Love The PS3 Platform
We've already heard one developer tell PlayStation 3 owners they needn't worry; that was when id Software said RAGE would be almost identical across all platforms.
And now, it's Irrational Games boss Ken Levine concerning the upcoming Bioshock Infinite. In speaking to the PlayStation Blog, Levine attempted to reassure PS3 owners by being firm and honest; in truth, his words are awfully encouraging, and we're inclined to believe him. He says they started the Infinite project knowing they'd be on the PS3, so forget about a shoddy port. Furthermore:
"Look, I’m not blowing smoke here. We were Xbox-first for the original game, and now we have something to demonstrate to the PlayStation 3 audience. We love the platform. I have three PS3s at my house. It’s a great game system and I love the kinds of games that are coming out on PSN."
Levine also talked about the possibility of 3D for his game; the feature isn't confirmed and he wants to make sure he isn't just "checking a box." In other words, he doesn't want to do it just 'cuz a lot of other games do it. But we're impressed by Levine's explanation concerning Bioshock on Sony's platform; the guy is charismatic and very candid, and we're perfectly willing to take his word for it.
