So...whatever happened to Bioshock Vita?

BioShock Infinite's next Burial at Sea DLC will be longer

One of the (perhaps less serious) criticisms levied at the first part of BioShock Infinite's Burial at Sea was that it was rather short at its hour or two run time. I'm not one to be upset with games for being too short, but if that was an ...
