Ken Levine still wants an original Bioshock for Vita to happen

Viva la Vita: "In an interview with IGN discussing Bioshock Infinite, PlayStation 4, and more Irrational Games Creative Director and Co-Founder Ken Levine reveals that he still wants the original Bioshock game, announced at E3 2011 to happen:

"I’ve got my fingers crossed that that’s going to happen because it’s something I want to do. But until somebody starts signing the checks, there’s nothing I can do”

In an earlier interview Levine revealed that Sony pressured him to announce the game in an attempt to show support for Vita, no matter the stage of development for the title."

That depends on how many consumers pick up a Vita within the next year or so. Vita's install base needs to climb before Take Two deems a portable Bioshock is worth the risk. Bioshock Infinite's sales will also play a role as it will give Take Two a ballpark estimate of how many people are still interested in the franchise in order to justify a portable entry.

im sure a lot of people would buy a Vita if a brand new Bioshock was made for it. I know I would. Ken said it would be in a completely new world.

Not one single game on the Vita has crossed the million units mark. And at 3.45 million units sold in 2012, the Vita has to be the slowest selling mainstream console of all time.
It took 42 weeks for the vita to sell a million in Japan, compare that to the psp which took only 10 weeks and you can see why 3rd party developers aren't falling over themselves to make games for the little doomfest

To bad Sony lacks interest in it, or they would pay for development and publishing.
Like N has done with Bayoneta.
Even Sony lost faith in Vita, or else they would put more money in it, buying game exclusives, publishing, marketing, price cuts.
Sony have to push Vita in every way possible.

Is it viable (€€€€) ?

In all honesty, i would prefer they spent their money and time on a Bioshock (or new IP if they want) for next gen consoles.

Gaming on tablets, smartphones or portable gaming devices ... I'm over that phase.

does it matter how many vita's were sold? i mean come one here we got 3rd party dev who wants to make a game for the vita not even caring about how many system were sold. Ubsoft did the same and their happy and GG is doing it also and GG is a hell of 3rd party dev, and they but their top game on the vita which is getting a lot of ppl attention. have anyone seen the comments on yotube ppl clearly saying that they thought that KZM ws for the ps3 and want the vita new?!

GG is a 1st party dev but I get what you are saying. I understand the devs lack of faith in the vita sales but at the same time any high quality game released for the vita now would get alot of sales with a bigger spotlight on it with few big games releasing. Too late for bioshock vita to get a big spotlight tho. For it to be successful they will have to make a good game.

Im not a huge killzone fan and may not even buy the one on ps4 when I get it at launch. I will however buy KZ mercenary on vita to support their great vita effort and also to be able to try a FPS on a portable that is actually good. like you said about extra attention, Im more likely to buy a killzone game on vita then I would be if there were tons of other good FPS on vita. Same could have happened with bioshock if they were already making it now(although I would already buy bioshock on anything, others might get into the series with vita and then but the console one too maybe).

you have to spend money to make money or less sony has doubt in their hand held system.
