Bioshock Infinite Confirmed for Wii U, Development Begins After PS3/XBox 360 Release

While it’a more or less been known for a while, we haven’t had much concrete confirmation that Bioshock Infinite is coming to the Wii U. However, a new report has seemingly come in, confirming that the game will indeed be heading to the Wii U. (BioShock: Infinite, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

That's bittersweet, to say the least. For one it's great the Wii U is getting more 3rd party support. On the other it's a shame that it doesn't seem to be taken very seriously.

The game was way into development for PS3/360/PC before the Wii-U was even announced.Third party games will be ported over later since production on them have already started on the current platforms available....

"Third party games will be ported over later since production on them have already started on the current platforms available...."

That's what I predicted on a article a while back, but people were saying no, no, no (with disagree).

I also mentioned COD could come early next year for Wii U and, I still believe that.

Wii U is delaying our games!
I'm kidding, I really don't know if that's the case.
But was there an official reason why BioShock Infinite was delayed, or did I miss something?
Megaton  +   1253d ago
Install base of 100+ million vs install base of zero. It shouldn't be taken as seriously for the time being.
PopRocks359  +   1253d ago
You create an install base by making games. Or so people tell me every time I get into a debate about the Vita.
Megaton  +   1253d ago
Yeah, and people are creating games. Doesn't mean everyone has to drop what they're doing and make Wii U ports. Some people don't have an abundance of resources to devote to all platforms at all times. I'm sure lots of companies are waiting to see how it does, and how many of their users actually buy core games before they start porting everything from the PS360.
PopRocks359  +   1253d ago
Given statements made by Ubisoft that porting games to the Wii U is quick, easy and above all cheap I'm not really seeing how the resources thing is an issue, especially since it's a large scale publisher and not just a small time indie dev working on Bioshock Infinite.
linkratos  +   1253d ago
If hardcore games (other than Nintendo's) don't come to the Wii U then neither will a substantial enough install base for future hardcore games. Developers are only shooting themselves in the foot by not helping draw hardcore gamers in now and creating another reliable clientele for future releases. It's a very short-sighted approach, and one that I've never understood.
DigitalAnalog  +   1253d ago
Likewise, you have to understand that gaming console release always have PACKS of customers lining up to get first dibs. The fact that Bioshock Infinite is putting more emphasis in it (not to mention if done correctly) it becomes a more viable option to those new Wii-U owners who have very little choice in early release of games.

Even though Infinte is my most anticipated game for next year... its frustrating to see that the type of third party support the wiiU is getting is just late ports

I remember when the gamecube and the wii came out, there were games right there that I was excited to play... the wiiU is not the same

Is anyone dying to get a wiiU similar to how people were when the gamecube, wii and n64 came out? Nothing excites me.. and that is disappointing to me as a life long fan of nintendo.. hell even the 3ds.. which had a week launch line up made me buy it on release with the promise of zelda, paper mario, etc

The WiiU showed nothing that makes me want to buy the system right now

All the third party offerings (except for ubisoft with zombiU and Rayman) are just ports of games I played or will have played before the wiiU comes out, or before the game comes out for the system

Nothing new... which is very disappointing as it feels like the system is trying to play catch up with the PS3 and 360

Hopefully the infinite port fairs better than Arkham city, because from what I played AC on wiiU is inferior to AC on PS3, 360 and PC

It will be a better bioshock or they wouldnt bother a better version of the same game.

whats the point of the wii u if all of these 3rd party games are already out on console? batman assassins creed darksiders mass effect and now bioshock. the only difference is a gimicky control with their gimicky control pad. by the time these games are out were already looking forward to the 720 and ps4 so whats the point?
DivineAssault  +   1253d ago
Maybe there are some ppl who get nintendo consoles and nothing else.. IDK but it might be possible.. Let them have their excitement for a little bit bro.. In the next week, everything will be laid out for them concerning price n $hit.. I agree that most wouldnt want to wait until 2014 or so to play it tho.. Im not especially after i see nx gen consoles..
ALLWRONG  +   1253d ago
Because with Wii U all games will probably look, and run a whole hell of a lot better than PS3/360.

I think PS3 fans fear the Wii U because it has the potential to end the PS3. A more powerful console that plays 3rd party games with a fair price. PS3 fans still cling to the hope that the PS3 will pull ahead.

Fact is the Wii U will be the most advanced console on the market, until the next Xbox and PS4. Wii U has a chance to take some impatient core gamers away from Xbox and PS.

"I think PS3 fans fear the Wii U because it has the potential to end the PS3. A more powerful console that plays 3rd party games with a fair price. PS3 fans still cling to the hope that the PS3 will pull ahead."

Yeah sorry the only thing that will end the ps3 is the ps4 launching and sony stopping development of it(ps3). Lol another sales analyst, funny i rarely hear gamers, complaining that they have nothing to play on the ps3/360.

But the wii i heard it often talked about, first place in hardware sales and last place in software lineup isn't king of anything for a gamer.

"Fact is the Wii U will be the most advanced console on the market, until the next Xbox and PS4(congradulations you made 1 point)."

"Wii U has a chance to take some impatient core gamers away from Xbox and PS."

That is so cute you really think ps3 and 360 gamers are going to spend $300+ on a in between generation system with a minor graphics bump.

The only people that will be buying it, are gamers that absolutely must have nintendo titles day 1. You nintendo guys are delusional if you think nintendo is going to take any significant chunk of ms/sony's core gamers.

Btw next gen has been around before this gen started, actual probably a full gen past the upcoming one, it's called a pc.

Why do you nintendo fanboys assume, that ps3/360 owners will flock to the "next gen" nintendo console, because it is more powerful than the ps3/360.

"Because with Wii U all games will probably look, and run a whole hell of a lot better than PS3/360."

Your seriously boasting about the wii u, having better graphics and/or performing better than 7-8 yr old consoles, which have been suffering from a lack of memory.

Damn that is hilariously stupid, can't wait for the ps4/xbox 720 to release it's specs, then i want to see how much nintendo fanboys are still bragging about the wii u's graphics/performance.

Btw if nintendo wants to get ps3 and 360 gamers, they better take their current online package and make it 2-3 times better. This is a group that will not accept a subpar online experience, not after they are used to psn and live.

So if the wii u is such a beast, why is it still afraid to show off what it can do or what it has to offer.

MaxXAttaxX  +   1253d ago
If you were a Wii-only owner this gen, then I see why you might care about old multiplatform games everyone else on current gen consoles(PS3/360) and PC has played.

But realistically speaking, the Wii U is launching 7 years late at the end of the current gen cycle. Too close to the real next gen of consoles to care about things like the gamepad. Need new core Mario game(that isn't a NewSMB remix), Zelda, SSB, Star Fox and a proper Metroid game to appeal to me.

The developers behind porting ME3 to wiiu have 2 original games in development for wiiu a crytek partner has a CE3 game in development,Aliens wiiu will be far superior 1080p better graphics and gameplay/modes,Fifa wiiu best looking version,Ancel says BGAE2 could run on wiiu,then u have Metroid prime 4,Smash bros 4 and an original Zelda coming t both wiiu/3ds,Ubisoft have 2 secret projects,MH4G is wiiu bound,Black ops 2.

To name a few also the wiiu has lots of Nextgen games in development as we speak Nintendo have said as much expect to
learn of most of these over this month.

Oh many devs have said its a powerful powerful console and its defo Nextgen plus Nintendo said it uses Greenhill which in my eyes means the rumours of the beefed up E6760 is true and fanboys will die when then see Metroid 4 on wiiu.

Well I guess the kids of all the moms that support Wii because Rosie or whoever told them to will now get to play some great games that they missed.

Makes sense cause it's Unreal 3. Should be easy to port over.

No Wii U version. 2k isn't a big Nintendo developer.
playlikemario  +   1253d ago
this is a cool step that the bioshock team made to go ahead and bring it over to the Wii U, i have only play the first game but if they have it on the Wii U more than likely since i will have the system i will be picking this up and third party titles seem to investing more in the Wii U than the first party stuff that is kinda odd to me. anywho im done.

Good.I would of got the ps3 version but really i just don't play ps3 tat much anymore.
