BioShock creator: Next-gen gaming all about portability

TechRadar - With the launch of BioShock Infinite just days away, Irrational Games' creative director Ken Levine weighed in on the future of gaming. His opinion? It's all about being able to take your gaming with you. (BioShock: Infinite, Ken Levine, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I disagree. But he has his opinion and I have mine.

I don't agree with him either.

i just dont understand why they would make bioshock for vita, the game is like 10$ preowned, if you were a plus member on ps3, it was free to play for like 5 months, whos going to buy, everybody at this point played it, to me its a waste of time...

p.s. i dont agree with him as well as you can see lol

All about portability? It sounds like Ken will be at GDC and is getting ready to announce properly the new Bioshock title on the Vita he discussed E3 before last when the Vita was shown.

I don't agree either. I actually get quite annoyed when I see a good looking game get released for portable systems only. If I'm not at home, I'm too busy doing other things and don't have time to be playing games like driving, working, or all the other things that cause me to be away from home in the first place. If I'm out and have time to play games, I might as well head home. I'm not going to buy a portable system to play games on a tiny screen at home.

With that said, I'm not saying there isn't a market for portable games. Clearly some people do have time when they're away from home to play, but that isn't me.

I like my couch very much thank you.

I read a stat that said most "mobile gamers" play their portables at home anyway.

Hope he support the vita. It really needs support from great developers. I swear if they just release the games people love in vita prices wouldn't matter even though i would love to see a price drop for games and memories . But it's sad that they are ignoring what we want :(

I really feel the potential of vita but it's collecting dust and it's not my fault because i buy all the good games. Right now i don't see one game in vita that makes me excited. Still waiting and i'm not selling it. Just hope sony realise this faster and do something to encourage the developers to support it ..

Go on wololo.net , the vita has been hacked where you can play psp ISO and ps1 games
(unless your on latest fw, you won't be able to for quite some time!)

Horrible. This is not how you support your system. 'Hackers dont hack to pirate' my ass.
SAE  +   645d ago
I got the uno hack but i updated again. It's not bringing something new to me. It's like owning a psp. I don't want that. Vita can do much better and bring new things so I want them to unlock everything in vita and then i will hack it.

@r21
I didn't hack it for pirating games. That's me so i think there are others who did it for the same reasons . Not all hackers are evil you know. I want to use the vita power. It's my right to do that because i bought it. They lock more then half the features.

Yet they have not even started developing bio shock for the vita. Good move ken.
CaptainYesterday  +   645d ago
Not his fault Sony needs to sign the checks and besides BioShock Infinite is coming out soon I'm sure he is focusing on that right now than hopefully he's going to start work on BioShock Vita :)

finally....... after one and a half years lol
TuxedoMoon  +   645d ago
I disagree with this guy. The next generation will probably be more about online services and the cloud.

Show me Bioshock running on psvita and i might have to agree.

Why would anyone play a console game on any handheld?
Handhelds are all about unique games, games that you can't play on a big screen and a home console.
Why would I play a waterd down version of Uncharted, GoW, BioShock, LbP on a small screen?
There might be some people that want it, but they're in minority, I think that the main target audience for hand helds are kids.
Handheld is there to keep kids busy in car, on travel, or at home.

That's the reason why Nintendo owns with handhelds!
