Ken Levine on PlayStation Vita

The guy loves it

Irrational Games boss Ken Levine is a creative man of many unique ideas. Naturally, when he shares his thoughts on something, it’s best we pay attention. Levine seems to like PlayStation Vita a good lot, saying it “has everything and the kitchen sink in it.” His studio is currently developing an all-new BioShock game for the platform.

Speaking during an interview with the PlayStation Blog, Levine said: “I’m a gamer, right? I like playing games on iPad… but deep down I want that level of control. What’s cool about PS Vita is that it seems to have all the benefits of an iPad-type device with the touchscreen and motion controls. But it has dual analog sticks… and I love shooters. You can finally play a shooter, a real shooter, on a handheld. Seriously, that’s a hole in my soul right now. Now I’ll have something I can play real shooters on, and that’s really important to me. It’s awesome.

“I tweeted a while ago that it did everything but make me an omelet. It sort of has everything and the kitchen sink in it, which is great as a gamer.”

You heard the man, Sony. Add in an Omlet-making application and PlayStation Vita should be ready to go.
