Sony’s Shahid Ahmad, the man largely responsible for the PlayStation brand’s current rise in indie popularity, has announced early this morning (well, overnight) that there’s “an amazing big title” coming to the PlayStation Vita.
“Oh and there is an AMAZING big title coming to Vita,” he said on Twitter. “I can’t tell you anything about it, except that you are gonna be hooked for hours.”

Shahid has declined to comment further, but it’s likely that this isn’t referring to anything AAA in the usual sense of the word. We’d suspect this will be a top-tier indie game, perhaps something like Ridiculous Fishing (which fits, if he’s teasing) or perhaps even Minecraft.
Update here: Shahid has commented further to clarify a couple of things. It’s not an indie game, and the “hours” means “hours a day”. OK, so it’s big.
Regardless of what it is, Shahid is doing tremendous work at the moment, and we have already started to see the results of his turning the platform around.
