Been overwhelmingly excited about this game since it was first announced. BioShock still remains my favourite game of all time, and this game is going to be incredible. Whether it will dethrone the original, I'm not sure, but I certainly think it will be Game of the Year. These next four weeks are going to drag...
After multiple delays, Irrational Games' new action-shooter approved by Sony and Microsoft for release March 26.
BioShock Infinite has gone gold. After three years of development and multiple delays, Irrational Games' latest action-shooter has been approved by Sony and Microsoft for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC next month on March 26.
"Nobody has ever built a game quite like this," Irrational Games cofounder Ken Levine wrote in a blog post. "It’s a shooter, but a shooter that brings you to very uncomfortable and dangerous places. I can’t demand that you play the game; I can promise you, however, that once you have, it will be an experience you won’t soon forget."
BioShock Infinite was announced in August 2010 with a 2012 release window attached. In March 2012, an October 16, 2012, release date for the game was chosen. However, the game would later be delayed to February 26, 2013, and then again to March 26.
When BioShock Infinite ships next month, it will do so with great sales expectations. One analyst has suggested the game would be a significant financial boon for publisher Take-Two, saying it could ship 4.9 million copies.

As much as I'd like to get this Day 1, I'm going to wait for user reviews. So much hype on games these days and they're just mediocre at best!
Really looking forward to this game. I've been trying not to watch too many trailers of it, so as not to spoil the experience. Please be good.
Ken Levine is certainly confident that his game is going to be great. BioShock certainly did not disappoint so i have faith in his words.
I went to see The Hobbit in theaters when it released and before the movie started they played the 'Beast of America' trailer on the huge screen with surround sound! Needless to say it was amazing! Would you kindly like this comment.
"Nobody has ever built a game quite like this", Ken, I'm excited about your game but please do yourself a favor and don't overhype it as Mr.Molyneux twice did.
I'm getting this day 1. But I have to say, I've never ever seen a game get this much attention by the gaming sites as this has in the past few months. Almost every day there was a different story related to it on Gamespot or IGN. I don't usually mind this kind of exposure for my favorite games, but it just feels like they went overboard here.....what the hell did they do to get all this coverage. Anyways, looking forward to this.
Bioshock was a real achievement, I have a feeling they captured that magic again - Looking forward to this one.
This is the first game I've been really excited for in ages. Bioshock is my pick for game of the current gen so far, hopefully this can be as good.
Bioshock 2 seemed twice as hard as the first. I hope to high heaven that Irrational didn't figure: Gee... this is the third game, so let's make it three times as hard. That's the first thing I'll be watching for in the reviews.
@wyan_ well that's just not true. bioshock was way harder than bioshock 2. bioshock 2 didn't even have survivor difficulty and big daddies were way harder to kill than in bioshock 2. i hope survivor comes back in infinite!
@wyan_ The harder the game the better
I really hope this game turns out good. We need a victory around here after all the disappointments lately.
Got my PC version pre-ordered, and started playing the first game again
I am ready for this to come out
This is gonna be one amazing game, been a fan since the first one ever since I saw the first Infinite trailer I knew it was gonna be epic :)
About time ! I've been waiting and waiting for that game to come out and finally, I'll be able to enjoy that new chapter in the Bioshock saga. Oh, and I made sure to buy the Songbird Edition too. Haha !
Congrats Irrational Games! It's been quite a long-haul, hasn't it? Homestretch now. I'm really looking forward to it.
Well, just a day after complaining they stopped focusing on Elizabeth for their ads here we are and I'm yet again fully excited for this game. Counting down for the midnight release of one of the best games to end a console generation.
I'm thinking of buying this, without watching any video reviews. If there are any short comings in this game, that are mentioned in the review, I don't want to be spending my time looking for them, instead of simply losing myself in the experience. I don't know much about how games are made, so that too will work in my favor. Ignorance is bliss!
Maybe it will be more fun from Crysis 3.
I do not like the cartoony enviroments and the low polygon characters but gameplay may be fun
are you serious
@gamingfrendly @Henrique2324 Oh don't get me wrong. It was definitely one of my favourite FPSes from this entire generation. I'm just saying hardmodes don't do much beyond that.
@Henrique2324metro 2033 was awesome cant wait for last light
@Henrique2324 Well aren't you a ray of sunshine. Bet you are a riot at parties, too.
@FAIL_TR0LL I wouldn't count on it. Just scarce ammo and insta-deaths like in Metro.
I don't mind if they add regenerative health. I used the Fountain of Youth combat tonic in Bioshock 2 anyway.
You can always turn on the 1999 mode. That probably wouldn't have it.
