Ha! Jolly good guess, Mr. Plum.
Just to chime in, the mod team is going to get clarification from the admins about what constitutes a spoiler. Everyone has their own opinion. Until we hear otherwise, don't worry about having to spoiler tag anything from an official press release. We're meant to have those morsels to chew on. LOL. But if you want to go in knowing absolutely nothing of significance about this game, then heed Codex's warning and be very careful. Lots of fun details are coming out and will be discussed on these forums!
Very interesting news, and not before time! Time rifts, what a great concept, now I'm pretty positive about a small return to Rapture in the game. Imagine a portal opening up into the Kashmir restaurant 1960. Also, ''Him'' is actually named ''Songbird''. Odd. I can vaguely remember something like an audio diary or poster in the original Bioshock entitled ''Ryan's Songbird''.
Connection? Or strange coincidence?

According to 2K David, you do not have to treat anything from an official press release as a spoiler.
You can openly discuss anything that has been released to the major news and gaming sites. No spoiler tags required.
Once the game is released (or if someone leaks info unofficially) then we will start observing the spoiler rules.
As a reminder, magazine scans are not permitted on this forum. Magazines are copyrighted material, and reproducing them is illegal and can get 2K Games into trouble. Do not post scans, link to sites with scans, offer scans via PM, or request scans. Thank you!
This is a wise man and speaks the truth. Anything published on our official sites or in press/editorial pieces is fair game. When we get closer to launch, things will be dicier, but until then - if you want to go into total media blackout this thread is not for you.

Will this also be the case for Bioshock Infinite?
Here's the new E3 trailer: http://gamevideos.1up.com/video/id/33847
Levine also announced that PS gets Infinite Move compatibility, nothing for Kinect. Also, there will be a PS Vita (the new handheld) exclusive BioShock game in the future.
After watching the trailer, I must say I'm astounded! The game's looking better than ever!

I don't get it.
Why Irrational released a slightly different cut of the teaser trailer, compared to what was shown at E3 Sony conference with Ken on the stage.
The conference trailer, albeit nearly identical, is ten times more powerful because of the details - especially the scream and the presence of Songbird. Just take a look @ 23:30
Come on, Irrational, release the trailer as shown in the conference. The impression is a lot more harmonious.
I'm actually pretty bummed about it. After working on several different computers all day at work, having an android phone, and a a PS3+desktop+laptop at home, I really don't want yet ANOTHER device.

So now I'm either going to fork out a bunch of money for something I'll barely use, or miss out on a piece my all time favorite game franchise. I'd much rather see a spin off or whatever this is going to be on the systems that would reach the broadest audience. Currently 360, PS3, and PC.
My feelings exactly. This sudden game is pretty much forcing me to buy a PSV in the future just because Bioshock has that irresistible allure. Then again, who knows when it might come out? Hopefully the PSV would have gone down in price by the time it appears on shelves.

The Ps3 version of Infinite also comes with the original Bioshock on the disc as per Sony's E3 presentation.

I myself don't enjoy handheld devices such as the DS etc. because I simply do not use them in my home, only when my consoles aren't available, I will use it. I'm only happy about the news that another Bioshock game is on the way, and interested to see what it's all about, and how it plays out on the new Vita not because I will most definitely buy one, (which I probably wont) but because I love everything Bioshock.
New video with Ken Levine talking about Columbia's SkyHook system with new gameplay.
watched it now i want the Demo video they showed off at E3 like NOW!!!

This. Infinite looks to be mind-blowing, it's awesome. Now, we all play the waiting game.

2K's latest ARG is CitizenSkywatch.com, which will lead up to the XCOM release. Things are just starting to heat up, if you want to try playing along!
I just realized, "vigors" they will behave like they have ammo? you will need to keep getting more bottles of the same stuff to keep from tapping out? That seems like a downer for me but the sky-rail almost makes up for it almost...
We'll have to see how it plays out, Jules. In a way, it's not much different than Eve. Except a vigor has "charges".
I have a feeling they are shifting towards more variety in the powers by instituting a "quality" factor. Admittedly, I need to read up on it more, but I'm pretty sure I've heard Ken Levine talking about how specific vigors and nostrums can vary based on price or value. We've been told that some nostrums are stable vs unstable, and I'm guessing that vigors might come with different numbers of charges. But I could be wrong.
I'm fairly certain, though, that vigors will be plentiful. Judging by the run-and-gun portion of the latest demo, combat is supposed to be fast and furious. That means swapping out guns frequently and likely picking up vigors/nostrums on the fly. I'm betting we will have plenty of options for weapons and abilities presented to us while in crisis situations, making the gameplay more about the choices you make not about scrounging.
I'd guess it will be more like EVE. they probably want to do something to limit their use, and rather than simply copy the BS system of obtain the plasmid then stock up on eve so you can use it, they're going to combine Adam and Eve into the vigor. the vigors will probably be as common as either eve or adam were, and you will probably be able to carry a few of them at a time.

id say the best part of the game is vigors they look less complicated than plasmids.

Bought PC Gamer Digital Episode 2 a while back just for the Bioshock Infinite walk-around thing they had in there. That was pretty cool! I need to watch this more closely as the new year draws near.
Bioshock Infinite is looking good so far, I would love to buy it or collectors edition when it comes out it the sad part is I'll be in boot camp by the time it comes out so I won't be able to play it..
Probably they want to make it a bit different than BS1/BS2 where many people played thru most of the game with just Incinerate equipt.
