By now you guys reading should know that we have a lot of love for handheld gaming systems, as well as the bigger hitters like the PS3 and Xbox 360. We love to see big name titles announced for both the Vita and 3DS, and one that we are keeping our fingers crossed for is definitely BioShock for the Vita.
Originally announced during the Vita reveal at E3 2011, things have been fairly quiet since then. Some people had thought that relatively low sales of the Vita so far had delayed the game, but after Ken Levine spoke to Eurogamer regarding the handheld title hopes are again high that we could see a fantastic story based FPS on the Sony machine.
“Where the Vita stands right now, it’s in the hands of the business people at Take-Two and the business people at Sony working out, hey, what happens in these business people discussions? Fortunately I don’t have to take part in it any more because I sold my company a long time ago.
“It’s something I’m still very interested in. I still have a cool design for it. It’s a question of, do those guys come to find the right mix that makes everybody happy to make that happen?”
It does however seem that any potential BioShock Vita title won’t be a port of BioShock Infinite which is certainly good news for those looking for an original experience.
“I’ve never said it was Infinite,” Levine said. “It will be something. I’m always hesitant to talk too much about things we don’t have anything to show about because it’s getting ahead of ourselves. I’m trying to be very careful.”
So what do you guys think? Do you hope we will eventually get to see this game? Would formally announcing and showing off a BioShock game for the Vita make you rush out and buy one?
