BioShock Infinite Will Have Reversible Box Art

IGN: Irrational has announced that BioShock Infinite will have reversible box art. After the game’s box art was shown off earlier this month, some fans weren't impressed and Irrational is now letting them vote for what they’d like to see on the other side.

Seriously, after the reaction to the initial box art, who didn't see this coming?

It's great that Irrational is catering for those of who have requested alternative covers nonetheless, despite how ridiculously overblown the entire situation has been. As for the alternatives themselves, I love the propaganda-like artwork of the Songbird covers, they're stunning. I also believe the second Dewitt/Elisabeth cover to be a much stronger identity for "Bioshock Infinite"'s box art, showing both characters emphasises that the game will be massively character driven and that the game has heart and isn't just a trigger-happy shooter.

This is brillaint

This is why people need to complain more over things which they don't like, if no one said anything then we would of gotten nothing.

Sure it's such a small thing but it just shows you how much gamers can do when they speak out. I just hate those who tell people to shut up or that they are crybabies.

I would choose this one

or for it's artistic look

the second pic looks pretty sweet

Some credit should also go to Irrational for finding a way to please the fans over a relatively trivial matter.

As for the cover, I'm having a hard time picking between the two artistic ones. =/

Pozzle1830d ago

Oh, I really like the second artistic one.

If it was sitting on a game store shelf, both artistic cones would definitely catch my eye.

StrawberryDiesel4201830d ago

Still would have gotten an amazing game. Art is awesome but was the cover so bad that they had to do this?? Were these "fans" going to pass on the game because of the box art?? The average gamer is such a homo.

Roccetarius1830d ago

I would've chosen this one as well.

That or the second one you linked. It sends a better message about the game for me.

Wish there was a horizontal version of the 2nd artistic one, that would be on my PS3 background faster than greased lightning....

Box art doesn't really matter to me, though I do find it corny when they put a character on box art.

Blacklash931830d ago (Edited 1830d ago )

I see no reason to complain about more stuff for your money. There's been a few games I've flipped the cover for because I liked the back one better.

I'm voting for #4 with Songbird. He's basically the new Big Daddy and I think it would fit in very well next to Bioshock 1's cover (to have him the poster-whateverthatis). The exact art in question here isn't what I'd call perfect, but what can you do?

Ideally I'd have the box art get Songbird taking a menacing, vaguely oppressive stance with a depressed/frightened Elizabeth under him. Maybe Booker in the backround making his way toward them on a skyline with a representative glance of Columbia on the side. It would relate the game's characters and setting in a single badass image with parallels to the original Bioshock's box art to boot.

This whole situation is getting a bit ridiculous.

StrawberryDiesel4201830d ago

Yes, I'd personally rather have the game amazingly polished, they should worry about that first. If this game ends up not being nearly as good as the original Bioshock we'll still have the double sided box art right???

mynameisEvil1830d ago

What, do you REALLY think they've halted game development over the box? No, the art team is pretty much already done. So, rather than have them sit on their asses all day doing absolutely nothing, bored out of their minds, they can actually draw and make some cover art.

Besides, the art you see in this article have been completed for at least 6 months. Hell, we know some of that art was used for the GameInformer covers from early 2011. Nothing is detracting from time spent polishing the game people, so calm your dicks. The game will be as good as it was always going to be. :P

GreenRanger1830d ago

I won't be satisfied until the cover has three sides.

Anon19741830d ago (Edited 1830d ago )

I won't be happy until games come with those fold in covers, like MAD magazine.

Double_Oh_Snap1830d ago (Edited 1830d ago )

Vote, I choose 6 and either that or #4 should have been boxart imo.

Conzul1828d ago

Oh God yes, SIX!

4 will win though, it's ahead by 10% and 6 is in 2nd place :(

IIC0mPLeXII1830d ago

No mp, 1999 mode, and reversible better box art....goty already. Irrational gets loads of respect.
