Mark Rein is a key figure behind one of the most successful and prevalent engines in our industry, the Unreal Engine. So when he likes a new bit of tech – say, the PS Vita – it’s time to pay attention. In his eyes the handheld blew him away and he wanted to take one home with him immediately.
“The PSP was never that kind of a device,” he said, adding “People are worried about where Vita lives in the world of iPod Touch and iPhone, but it’s a completely different device.
“It’s hard until the device is in the market and people know how users are gonna respond, but I came away really lusting for one.”
