No BioShock Infinite Multiplayer

Ken Levine's Twitter feed reveals that BioShock Infinite will not include any form of multiplayer support. The designer expressed skepticism early on about the inclusion of multiplayer in Irrational's shooter sequel, though a recent job posting seemed to indicate it would indeed be part of the game. Now in a series of responses to questions about multiplayer support, he puts several nails in the coffin for this prospect, saying: Nope, No Multi, No MP in Infinite to being badgered about the prospect, leading to an exasperated retweet: "Thank sweet baby Jesus no multi ---That's exactly the reason we don't have it. That kid is persistent." Thanks nin via Kotaku.

Exactly, agreed.. SP games do not need MP, mp games do not need SP

I wish we could finally buy games in modules as well (obviously where each module is like a fraction of the full price ,p), especially MP games with crap SP campaign tacked on. Or SP games with crap MP...

Why no one does this yet...

No one does it because of a fear of how it'd shift the market. It's a whole new can of worms that could cause significant shifts in how games are budgeted, to bad results.

Would you be happy if new games came out at $60 ($50 for PC), but you could buy SP or MP individually for $40 ($30 for PC)?
