BioShock, The Move, And Vita
It looks like the PlayStation brand might be the place to go for your BioShock fix.
Ken Levine, head of Irrational Games and the man behind BioShock, emerged on stage during Sony’s E3 press conference to discuss their plans to work specifically with Sony’s hardware. Levine stated that originally, he was a critic of the PlayStation Move and motion controls in general. Sony was persistent in their attempt to make Levine a believer in their peripheral and sent Levine’s Irrational Games studio a Move bundle. The developers began to dwell on the idea of the Move and how it could be uniquely integrated into their upcoming BioShock Infinite.
When BioShock Infinite releases sometime next year, it will feature exclusive motion controls via Move. While Levine didn’t reveal much about the motion implementation, he promised that it would expand the boundaries of their game beyond what most motion controls do.
In addition to supporting the Move, Irrational Games will also be releasing a new entry in to the BioShock universe exclusively for the PlayStation Vita. Levine commented that the game was still in the design stage, but it leaves Sony and BioShock fans much to be excited about.
