Bioshock Infinite Vita Secondary To Console, PC Versions

When we learned Bioshock Infinite was in the works last year, developer Irrational Games said a PlayStation Vita iteration was planned.

However, according to what Irrational boss (that sounds funny) Ken Levine told Wired, we might have to wait a while. Currently, the team is working hard on the console and PC versions of the hotly anticipated game, and until they're further along in that process, they won't think about the Vita installment. Said Levine:

"These games really are all-consuming endeavors. You do want to keep the ball rolling but it is tough to give it your full attention before you finish what you have. But we're getting there with Infinite. So yeah, we're not as focused on the Vita game as we will be."

Levine has gone on record saying he wanted the game to be "unique" and something that's a "little different." Right now, he's saying there's a possibility that he may outsource the Vita version to another developer, although he is a little hesitant to just hand off his creation to someone else. For now, though, we're happy if we just get Bioshock Infinite for PS3, 360 and PC; it's slated to arrive on October 16 and we can't wait.

The Vita has other games coming, anyway, and many are designed specifically for the unit. Those usually turn out well.

Wait, I thought the Vita Bioshock was its own game and not a port of Infinite?

That's what I thought Jawk. I hope it is a different game because I'd rather have more original Vita games than tons of carbon copy games that are on the PS3.

wouldn't it be nice if the vita iterations of console games worked like the pokewalker worked with pokemon hg/ss. Letting you unlock some stuff earlier in game as you progress through the portable game or vice versa? That would be a neat idea.

After reading more and more articles about vita iterations of PS3 games I realize that we'll never be able to play ps3 games via remote play and it really bums me out.

you left out the best part, how ken did not want to announce it when he did because he had nothing to show and he hates talking about things he would rather show you.
thats exactly why kens my favourite developer out there!
he does not whip it out and say oh our games so good it can cook your dinner and walk your dog, he just shuts up and lets his game do the talking!
developers could benefit allot by learning from him!
maybe allot of people will find allot of games less disappointing if developers stopped pulling out the BS and started being honest!
maybe, just a hunch.............

I think Infinite is being conflated with the Vita game, they seemed clear it would be something different. Maybe an Infinite spin-off?

You shall not rule out the possibility that they simply want to see how things play out first, being not too impressed by the sales numbers so far.
