There’s been a niggling rumour regarding the possibility of a PlayStation Vita version of inFAMOUS for months and months now, but game director Nate Fox may have inadvertently strengthened that speculation during an interview with DualShockers TV. Asked about a handheld instalment of the superhero series as part of a question and answer at GamesCom, the Sucker Punch man got fairly flustered, even cringing as he appeared to accidentally indicate that a portable title’s in production.

“Right now we’re only talking about the PS4 game,” he said, grimacing. “I would love to talk you about any Vita related titles when – or, er, if the time comes.”

Of course, it’s not a confirmation by any stretch. However, immediately after he’s finished talking, Fox wears the face of a man who’s just said something that he shouldn’t – and we don't think that we're reading too much into it. There’s a definite insinuation from the developer that something is in the pipeline for the handheld, which is only going to fuel the aforementioned rumours.
