With BioShock Infinite, Quincy’s Irrational Games hopes for a hit

A beleagured industry in need of a big hit to juice consumers’ interest looks to BioShock Infinite, the hotly anticipated video title from Irrational Games

With sales down sharply last year, the video game industry is in search of a hit. Can BioShock Infinite, the hotly anticipated title from Irrational Games of Quincy being released Tuesday, provide that jolt?

Five years in the making, the game follows in the footsteps of BioShock, Irrational’s 2007 award-winning game, which sold over 4 million copies. Early reviews have ranged from favorable to ecstatic, suggesting that Irrational and its parent company, Take-Two Interactive Software Inc., have another hit.
