The lights are on
According to recent tweets from Irrational Games co-founder and creative director Ken Levine, he's still working to get a BioShock game started up on Sony's Vita handheld.
Late last week Levine went on a question answering spree from his Twitter followers when one of them asked about the latest on the BioShock Vita game that was announced way back at E3 2011.
"I talked to both Sony and 2k about it yesterday. Trying to make a match," he replied.
Another follower asked what he meant by making a match. "Trying to get the 2 companies to sign off," Levine clarified.
Back in February, he stated that BioShock Vita was not currently in development, but that he was still hopeful. More recently, he updated fans on the status of BioShock Infinite's DLC. Somehow he's also squeezing in writing a script for an upcoming Logan's Run movie remake.
Our Take:Mr. Levine must really like Sony's portable platform. He seems to have made it a passion project of sorts. The fact that 2K and Sony are still willing to meet with him about it could be a good sign, but if it hasn't happened yet after two years maybe development funding just isn't in the cards.

this needs to come to the vita in a fantastic addition to the series. maybe not so epic as infinite, but something on the lines of the first one, would be excellent.
FFS DO IT ALREADY!
Hell yeah, brother!
Good luck with that Ken Levine. I hope it works out well.
One it will one soon I hope.
I hope it happens.
if this were to really happen, i may just have to knuckle down and buy a vita. teraway is another reason.
That would be another reason for me to get a Vita.
Too late for me. After a year and a half of owning my Vita I finally sold it for cash towards my PS4 preorder. When your only killer app a HD port of a PS2 title, that's not a win for me.
DO IT! DO IT!
how about the DLC Ken? huh?how about that?
for the sake of the vita -- DO IT
