BioShock Infinite Delayed

bio

Looks like you will have to wait until March 26th, 2013 instead of February 26th.

Irrational Games’ BioShock Infinite won’t make its previously scheduled Feb 26, 2013, release date, the game’s creative director announced earlier this week. Citing the need for extra time to polish the ambitious first-person shooter, Ken Levine says the game will arrive four weeks later on March 26.

Levine announced the delay at an event in Beverly Hills earlier this week, saying that Irrational’s recently hired executive vice president of development, Rod Fergusson — who left Epic Games this summer — identified a need for extra development time for Infinite shortly after joining the company.

“He said, ‘Look. Frankly, I think you could really benefit from another three or four more weeks for polish and bug-fixing,” Levine said. “I knew I’d probably get beat up in the press a little bit about it, but at the end of the day, if it’s going to make a better game, we’ll do it.”

February is already a busy month, with Fire Emblem: AwakeningDead Space 3Aliens: Colonial Marines and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance due. BioShock Infinite‘s new release date puts the game up against EA’s Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is Here!

Throughout its almost 20-year history, PlayStation has allowed us as players to explore new worlds, triumph over adversaries, and realize our dreams of rapping superstardom. Three years ago, SuperBot Entertainment, BluePoint Games, and Santa Monica Studio set out to create a game that pays tribute to the amazing memories we as PlayStation fans have all experienced together. Today is the day that we’re able to share that game with you. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has arrived!

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a celebration of the PlayStation history: its characters, its universes, and most importantly, its fans. And what better way to celebrate that with some good old-fashioned butt-kicking! In PlayStation All-Stars, up to four players can simultaneously control any of the 20 great PlayStation characters featured on our roster, including Kratos from God of War, Nathan Drake from UNCHARTED, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, Big Daddy from BioShock, and Dante from DmC Devil May Cry, and fight it out brawler-style on one of our 14 levels, each one created by mashing up two PlayStation worlds — like the topsy-turvy world of LocoRoco mixed with the war-torn battlefields of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

While our Versus Mode, which pits player against player (against player, against player) will undoubtedly provide endless memorable experiences, venture into Arcade Mode to find out what brings all of these great characters together into one crazy world. And if you’re strong enough, discover what it’s like to face the oldest and most powerful PlayStation All-Star, Polygon Man. Or, head over into the Combat Trials Mode to learn the ins and outs of the Battle Royale combat system. Insight into the various fight mechanics and individual character instructions come together in the form of a fun yet educational mode. And when you’re ready, jump online to challenge the world in either our Tournament or Quick Match Modes, which offer what we feel is an online multiplayer experience virtually indistinguishable from offline play.

Available on both PS3 and PS Vita (digital and retail), PlayStation All-Stars takes full advantage of the interconnectivity between the two platforms via Cross Play, allowing players to battle it out against one another on either device. Owners of both a PS3 and PS Vita can even transfer their saves from one machine to the other, allowing PlayStation All-Stars to be played wherever the fans want to play it. And best of all, if you purchase the PS3 version of the game,you get the PS Vita version at no extra cost! There’s no reason not to take advantage of such a great deal. As a friendly reminder, in order to redeem your digital PS Vita copy form the PS3 on-disc benefit, you’ll need to ensure your PS3 system is updated to the latest firmware, version 4.31.
