To quote: Today, the team at Irrational Games is proud to announce that BioShock Infinite will be released on PS3 this October 16th, 2012.
Our President and Creative Director Ken Levine has been talking about the game for years now and, like the rest of the Irrational Games team, he's thrilled that we can finally share the game's final release date.
"After BioShock, we had a vision for a follow up that dwarfed the original in scope and ambition," he told me. "BioShock Infinite has been our sole focus for the last four years, and we can't wait for fans to get their hands on it."
The game will support the PlayStation Move motion controller and we'll have further details to share on how it will work soon.
In addition, you will get a free copy of the original BioShock on the game's Blu-ray Disc. In the meantime, you can visit IrrationalGames.com to learn more about the game, or pre-order to ensure you get your copy on October 16th.
BioShock Infinite will be available on PlayStation 3 internationally on October...
65w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases for the coming week today, as follows:
The most talked about demo on PSN finally arrives in its full glory and with exclusive access to Mount Fuji, when SSX returns and performs a "front-side switch ollie" onto your PS3.
The unique multiplayer experience of Killzone 3, sheds the single-player campaign and arrives solo onto the PlayStation Store. PS Vita demos come in fours this week, with Touch My Katamari and Reality Fighters leading the pack. And PlayStation 2 classics brings Primal to PSN. Enjoy this week's The Drop.
SSX - Redefining the franchise, SSX pits riders against both mountain and man. Players explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team travels the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them.
From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade.
