Ken Levine praises PlayStation 4

"BioShock designer says the PC-like architecture for Sony's next-gen platform will "make life a lot better" for gamers." (Industry, Ken Levine, Sony)

I'm glad he feels that way. It's cool that one of the most talented and creative game designers is enthusiastic about developing on the PS4. That sounds more than good for gamers.

At the very least we can be sure we'll be getting some great games from Irrational Games this coming gen.


Forgive my previous mix-up of the dev-team.

I'm only replying here so people can read this: DO NOT go into the comments section. Some a**hole just spoiled the entire ending of 'Bioshock: Infinite'. Seriously, there's a special place in hell for guys like him...

dont know why you got a disagree.
maybe it isnt true but if it is true i would like to thank you.
i´ve being skipping all info on bioshock infinite since the first gameplay demo.

i want to experience everything by myself. hate to have some a-hole fuck it up by commenting such things.

Man I can't wait to see a next gen Bioshock! PS4 is a day one buy for me, everytime I read an article on PS4 nothing but good news from devs. I notice more devs are happier that Sony went with a more PC like architecture. I wish Sony did that for PS3. They wouldn't be in finacial woes if it wasn't for the development of the stupid Cell!! Anyway can't wait for PS4 and next Tues. Bioshock Infinite.
Minato-Namikaze  +   491d ago
Cell is a beast. I know devs didnt like it and it was (supposedly) hard to develop for. But sony santa monica, naughty dog, and kojima, makes me feel that they were just being whiny. New is hard sometimes i know. But some studios have proved that great games can be made on the platform.
hazardman  +   487d ago
True that. Sonys 1st party did knock it the park almost everytime. Sheeit even right now with the new releases like GOW A, Last of US. PS3 still has a lot left.
Persistantthug  +   491d ago
@hazardman......The Cell Processor isn't the source of Sony's "financial woes", my friend
Certainly not Sony as a whole corp, and not even specifically the PS3.

BluRay is what cost Sony the most money regarding the PS3.

And On a corporate level, Sony's trouble is much much deeper than their video game division.

He should port Bioshock infinite to PS4 and call it the definitive version
guitarded77  +   491d ago
I'm expecting Infinite to be on PS4, so I'm holding off on buying it... it's hell to wait, but I think many PC versions will be ported to the PS4 for launch.

EDIT: Yeah, I hope so too. I'm saving money for the PS4 launch right now, so I'm only buying exclusives. So if the PS4 launches with some of these high quality 3rd party titles being released with better graphics and performance, I'll feel like the wait was worth it. My PC just can't run these games at the highest settings.

I hope so, since IGN said the PS3 and 360 versions seem to be a bit lowered in terms of textures, resolution and framerates

You are a stronger man than I. I am counting the hours til Tuesday. Then I have to try and not buy TLOU is May...good God.
etownone  +   491d ago
Wow... Now, I'm thinking I should hold off and get the definitive next gen Bioshock Infinite.
MasterCornholio  +   491d ago
Now this is what happens when you design a console with input from the developers.

Other console manufacturers please take notes.
Letros  +   491d ago
No surprise, superior architecture 4tw.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   491d ago
He reminds me of a washed out looking Agent Mulder from X Files lol

He looks really bedraggled, but it's expected after a straight week of media events and interviews and flying around to various countries for press events for his game.
cgoodno  +   491d ago
Great interview. I loved his response about the box art and "relegating" Elizabeth to the back.

For those who didn't watch that far, here is a paraphrasing of what he said: The box is not the game, just as the packaging of oreo cookies is not an oreo cookie, it's just intended to get people to try the oreo cookies and that's it. He has a responsibility to get this game out into as many hands as possible because of the work his developers did. They designed the box based on what a wide array of people gravitated towards as far as 'picking it out from a shelf of similar boxes'. Anyone who doesn't see this doesn't have the same responsibilities as Ken.

Too bad this hour long interview is relegated to a title to just focus on the PS4 when so much more of import was discussed.

Best quote from the video: "We could kill the industry with cynicism."

Sony hit the goldmine with the PS4. Can't wait to see what this console can do.
Jazz4108  +   490d ago
This article is not praising sony but more like saying hes happy they got away from the cell and now have something similar to ms as in using pc tech. He also says he expects ms to be using the same pc tech so hes praisng ms as well.
