Recently BioShock Infinite developers Irrational Games held a contest for fans to help decide on a reverse cover art for the action RPG, with six different designs being up for voting. The results are now in and studio head Ken Levine has announced that the reverse cover art will be design number four, which can be found below.
The new cover art won a total of 38% of the total votes, clearly showing some quite tight results. The new art will be featured on the other side of the BioShock Infinite cover, one that has been receiving some quite negative feedback. Ken Levine has also revealed that while the chosen art will be officially printed, players will also be able to print out any of the freely available alternate covers when made available.

would have been nice if the title matched the rest of the art.
I really hope that's just a rough concept sketch...
Ever since the mass effect fiasco I am over the gamer self-entitlement syndrome. It is becoming an all too common occurrence. I wonder how many of the complainers will be buying their copy as an online download making their opinions irrelevant?
I wish Irrational would release both covers to retail and to see which one would perform better as I feel their original is far superior for its purpose of selling the game. Lion Head did alternative covers for Black & White back in the day so it wouldn't be without precedent.
Probably been posted before, but this was a good video on the subject:
how is it self entitlemet by gamers ippigi? It's a contest for the box art that the studio has put to competion out for by having the contest. it's not the same as the rip snorting that went on about a game's ending.
You will find that most creatives are a self entitled type of person, whether they are working for a studio or independantly or whatever.
it kind if makes sense that they would be too if they are successful enough to keep a paying audience playing their game.
i suppose then there is the likes of the humble bundle of independants, but they are probably tending towards being self entitled too behind all that marketing and charitable donating.
maybe it's the community involvment gone too far that has caused some people to take the feedback too far as was seen in the me3 ending thing. that was just unlucky for them given that the audience for that game was so rabidly passionate about changing the ending that the studio followed up with that dlc.
kinda the same here althought not A self entitled forum railroading by the community at all
