Our videos of BioShock Infinite

BioShock Infinite is officially released today and we can propose a bunch of videos from the Xbox 360 version and a good number of PC screenshots we took this evening. Miguel will provide you with PC footage tomorrow but until then, enjoy these few extracts which we edited thematically to avoid spoilers as much as possible. With a sublime opening, incredible atmosphere and stunning artistic direction, we don't see how you could be disappointed in this third episode. A must have without a doubt.

So, is this game is 60fps on consoles? I thought it was 30fps.

Nope it's 30, but for some reasons, we record and encode our console videos at 60 fps :)

I understand the low textures and it running better on PC. But I don't understand why so many have made comments about poor graphics, this game looks awesome.

This footage is from the 360 version or.......cause it indeed looks freaking good and after IGN's comments about muddy textures and occasional bad framerate.....this is not that.

I was expecting bad framerates like FC3 on console, and while i loved the game, the fps could reach ridiculous lows.

Just don't look at the textures up close, it's quite ugly. At least art direction wins out.

PC version it is, then.

Oh i bet it won't look too great if you do that, but it still seems to be quite the achievement for consoles this old.
Commented on 2013-03-26 01:50:38
Hmm this game has some issues...

I've seen a few vids of the console version. And it looks to run surprisingly well, but things have been sacrificed to get there (worthy sacrifice imo) textures can almost look like they havn't loaded in properly. But if it runs smooth i aint all too bothered. I wouldn't be surprised if this game gets a next gen release tho.

can you disable the shitty AA that blurs everything. Stupid cheap and ugly AA methods. do people have not eyes to see? trade some pixel dots in lines for a smudge screen? stupid, stupid.

That could happen. But by the time that comes out, most of us will have finished it already. I heard there's actually an option to lock the framerate in BI on console? I'll see about that stuff tomorrow myself...i'll just leave it on default first though.

I recall seeing another 360 video on youtube recently and it looked quite bad in terms of tearing and framedrops. I guess the option was changed to something else there probably. I'll probably have the apparent 'smudged out' look with good framerate over the a bit more sharper visuals, but with bad tearing and framedrops.

Everyone likes different things. I will always choose a blurry image over aliasing. I absolutely hate aliasing/shimmering/crawling, more than anything else.

Look's great . can't wait to get it :D

Looks incredible to play! Want!

I just popped it in. Of course it's not as fine as the PC and I can understand why BS 1 made more of an impact, it was 6 years ago. But you would have to be a complete snob to think it looks bad.
Commented on 2013-03-26 19:24:53
meh, looks boring to me, i miss the underwater.
this looks very generic and tedious, sky high ooooooooo weee sooo what zzzz
if i wanted that i can just take my glass out and smoke whilst playing the first two bioshocks.
Commented on 2013-03-26 20:35:49
This game is freaking amazing. It lacks the horror atmosphere of the first (and pointless second) bioshock. But the gameplay just feels so much better, the "plasmids" arn't as exploitable. Making their use far more tactica and making the game far more challengingl. Same goes for health, you have a shield system which recharges and a depleatable health bar (think halo) which stops you just running and gunning with a stockpile of 9 health packs (like in bioshock 1) everything else is very similar, looting chests, eating random floor food to heal or hinder, no cutscens. Recorded messages to find....it's bioshock, with better mechanics, with a different, but equally decent atmosphere.

Easily GOTY list material.

I watched a video from PC gamer that states why the game should be played on hard. I can't wait till tonight.

Korn, how far are you?

Kinda hard to gauge. I'm ransacking pretty much everything, although i did miss the first optional side quest your given at the start. I'm off to the get the electricity "plasmid" atm. I love Elizabeth's AI. She's curious in non-combat situations, and helpful in combat, but you don't need to baby sit her. It's win win. Not since alex vance have i liked an AI partner so much. And yeah, i'm playing on hard too. So far it isn't a frustrating experience, but it isn't a cake walk either. Stay out in the open for more then a couple seconds and you're dead.

I am playing on the ps3 and it looks very pretty and runs solid.I dig the whole vibe so far of this game,playing on hard Goty potential (so far at least).Art design is tops gameplay is surprisingly in your face fun too.

Because Bioshock 1 and Bioshock 2 on PC have piss poor shit graphics... I have beaten both on my PC maxed out and textures up close are horrible throw up puke.

This bioshock just has more of the same, minus water and an overall cartoony unrealistic look... as a game it may be fun but as a technical piece it hardly looks worth remembering.

I'm curious to know what you think of Ken's Rage 2 technically speaking. ^^
Commented on 2013-04-04 19:17:42
Game is very, very good. BUT the combat is way too easy and never challenging on normal, I miss a map and story as well as it's structure is very similar to BS1. This I didn't like, sometimes I had the feeling some "worship" phrases seem to be copied straight from part one. It's a lot alike, seems as if Ken can only do the same again. Part 4 needs a new director or at least a new writer definitely.

And as for the ending - love it ...

You know, there is usually an option to RAISE the diff level.

You don't say ...

I always play on normal. I am getting near 40, have kids and a family so I prefer normal modes (hardly play through games more than once) - it's hard enough to get my gaming time already ... hehehe

Besides, normal is as it's intended for the experienced gamer. And on this setting I find it far easier than part one. Never played more than the tutorial of part 2, so I cannot say if that was already easier. But I didn't find it to be a lot of a challenge.

I just find it a weird complaint when it can be rectified with the click of a button.
