So they want Sony to pay for the handheld release.

showtimefolks2560d ago

sony should pay for it, this could be a huge exclusive

Probably the next best FPS after Killzone Mercenayr.

I was just thinking, they probably wait how Mercenary will be doing. And Mercenaries makes it quite obvious that a shooter on the go can work if done right. Only problem is, they (Irrational/2K) have no engine. It's built on UE3 and while that works on the Vita it will be holding it back to reach it's full potential - while looking great on consoles, the performance hit UE3 takes compared to other top titles (lately - e.g. see Tomb Raider or Far Cry or Metro) is quite visible. Mercenaries is done by Guerilla Cambridge - former SCE - and optimized to the metal. Unless they write a new engine, I can't see Bioshock working too great on the Vita. But I hope they'd do it. Would be a great game, none the less.

I see nothing wrong with that. Seems like the 2K teams that develop Bioshock have a great relationship with Sony and Levine wants to do it. An Vita exclusive Bioshock may not be the system seller it needs, but I bet at least 70% or more of those 5+ million Vita owners would buy this game. And it would sell quite a few systems too.

I love Bioshock. I love the Vita. I just think with Gaikai streaming PS3 games on the Vita next year, we won't need this.

TheModernKamikaze2560d ago

Not even as a different title?

WeAreLegion2560d ago

I'd love that, but I can't imagine they'll put that much money and development time into it. :/

Ju2560d ago

That's like saying because I can stream SF this fall I won't be needing Mercenaries. Of course I do.

Kingthrash3602560d ago

reason for disagrees imo:
1. What?
2. Not everyone has the internet
3. Some people ride the bus....vita + bioshock = best way to kill a bus ride (and possibly miss your stop)
4. This will boost the vitas sells
5. Beating bioshock on toilet.............priceless.

WeAreLegion2560d ago

I understand all that, but I doubt anyone is going to spend time porting the games to the Vita when they know people can play them on the Vita via streaming.

I always forget some of you people live in cities, so I apologize for not thinking about bus rides.

It won't boost Vita's sales. What would boost Vita's sales is people actually knowing the Vita exists, a price cut, and new IP's. (And maybe a Monster Hunter, but I hate that series.)

"I always forget some of you people live in cities, so I apologize for not thinking about bus rides"

What are you talking about?
Some of you people?
you have to live in a City to use a bus?

Nothing like smacking a Rosie while wiping my rosy cheeks and making sure not to dip my Big Daddy in the toilet.

porkChop2560d ago

It's not a port of the PS3 game. It's an entirely new game that would be built specially for the Vita from the ground up to take full advantage of all its power and features. As for your comment about money and development time, Ken Levine himself and his entire team would be working on it. This is a full scale AAA BioShock game that Ken Levine says he really wants to make and would only be possible on the Vita.

Kingthrash3602560d ago

we wrote this at the same time......btw ...awsome great minds think alike

Kingthrash3602560d ago

I don't think its a port btw. I heard it was a new bioshock fir the vita.....ya uncharted vita.
