The upcoming issue of PC Gamer will not only talk about BioShock Infinite, but reveals a 3rd Vigor new to the game: Weapon Slave. Here's it's ability, quoted by Chris Remo (IG.Chris) of Irrational Games:
"And finally, while it’s common knowledge that dead men tell no tales, it’s a slightly less-well-worn (but equally true) maxim that dead men fire no weapons. With the Weapon Slave vigor, you can put those abandoned arms to good use by turning them into your own personal automated turrets that hunt down those enemies who have not yet discarded their own lives (and guns)."
It's also mentioned that the detailes may or may not change, so we'll see how this concept will work. Remo also hints of more Vigors will be revealed later by Irrational Games.

In an interview with IGN, BioShock creator stated that the upcoming BioShock game for PlayStation Vita will not just be a rehash of the original BioShock or BioShock Infinite, but something completely new that will be "strange and surprising to people." Sounds interesting - I wonder what ideas for other BioShock settings they might have. Any speculation?
He also stated that there are no current plans to bring the BioShock series to Nintendo's new platform, Wii U. , "I'm not saying it can't happen, but we have no plans to do any games for that platform."
Of course, he also discussed the upcoming BioShock Infinite, including its PlayStation Move functionality, stating that it will be totally optional to the gameplay experience "my hope is that we'll succeed in the experiment and people will like it. But if they don't like it, they'll never know it's there. And that's cool."

Hey there guys, this is my first post so be nice.
Irrational Games have finally uploaded the 15 minute gameplay video seen at E3 that none of us have seen before so here is a link to the E3 page where it is shown.
Enjoy. There's a lot of good stuff in there and I don't want to spoil it for you. Just watch it. Sam6131 22:39, July 11, 2011 (UTC)Read more >
What more can be said at this point, really? It's BioShock Infinite, and not only is it a proper demo, it's the same one that caused the press to shower it with all those Game of the Show awards. So what are you waiting for? I've embedded it after the break. Go watch it!
(Okay, okay, you want more info first? Here's an interesting little fact: this demo seems to confirm that the ten-minute demo we saw back in September was a proof-of-concept level, since Booker gets the same Vigour he did in the old demo, Murder of Crows, in a completely different location.)Read more >
