BioShock Infinite's Ken Levine On PS4, Vita And Marketing

Greg Miller: ''After what seems like an eternity, BioShock Infinite is finally done, and come March, you'll be able to play it. Still, we're not much for waiting, so over on Podcast Beyond, we grabbed Irrational Games Creative Director and Co-Founder Ken Levine and asked him our burning questions. You can catch the full interview on tomorrow's show, but we thought we'd break out the best parts for you below.'' (BioShock, Ken Levine, PS Vita, PS4)

He's not talking about Sony. He's talking about Take-Two, the publisher. They haven't yet agreed to let him work on the Vita game due to the Vita's poor sales. So the game won't get made until they give the game the green light and start funding the development.

Hopefully Vita sales pick up after PS4 release or around it's release date. They need to dual promote PS4 and Vita so people understand they both work in tandem and accentuate each other.

@adorie

I think it would be smart for Sony to release an "Ultimate Bundle" that comes with a PS4, a Vita+memory card, and a cross-platform game that works on both systems. Hell, they could take it a step further and have custom skins on each system, maybe black with dark grey Playstation symbols (X, O, etc) all over the systems.

Sure, the bundle would be very expensive. But if Sony are smart they will make the bundle cheaper than buying a PS4 and Vita separately. That gives more incentive for people to buy it. Sony also needs to heavily market how interconnected the PS4 and Vita are, and that you can Remote Play every single PS4 game.

With the PS4 Sony has a huge opportunity to turn the Vita around.

Completely agree with your bundle idea. Suggested the exact same thing on gamespot forums haha :P Sony should definitely see the potential of this, and I don't think it will take long before they put it into practice.

Bundle idea is great. They should sell the Vita for what they spend to build it and give it a limited run, say 1 million bundles in each territory? Maybe that's too much, lol.

But they gotta put more Vita's out there!
