Knack,The Character In The PS4′s First Announced Game,Can Grow 30 Feet Tall + New Info

Knack, the first PlayStation 4 game to ever be shown, is an interesting project, not least because of the main behind the game – Sony’s own Mark Cerny – is the one largely responsible for shaping the new console’s hardware specs. (Knack, PS4)

Long live 3D platformers, definitely getting Knack
GalacticEmpire  +   570d ago
Just not enough of them around these days, Knack will also be on my launch buy list, if only to support the genre.
abzdine  +   570d ago
i think i'm gonna get it too!
this really shows Sony will keep supporting different types of games for different audiences!

Knack is made by Mister Cerny so i'm expecting it will be the Crash Bandicoot of the PS4

The more I think about the PS4 event, the more I think it was Knack that actually stole the show lol :)

I re-watched the trailers last night in fact, I think it's gonna be a great game

I definately think theres a next gen ratchet cause of the movie ! Hope sly cooper makes a return ! With all the jak and daxter ports recently im hoping theres a new jak ! hope sony brings back the 3d platformer and make it a norm !
indubitably  +   569d ago
I am a huge fan of 3D platformers but this game looks very underwhelming to me.
thechosenone  +   569d ago
Oh god yes. We need more platformers next-gen.

- Mix of platforming and fighting against dozens of enemy types
LOL_WUT  +   569d ago
Same here hopefully I hope everyone gives it a try. ;)

Just to comment on the figure, this may be Sony's attempt at a PS4 "mascot." My response to that is "nice, and great potential."

My thoughts on its potential as the mascot: The character is as fun and lighthearted as Sackboy, but will probably have more personality (due to being in a save the world story). The story itself lends itself to a good potential of humor. The gameplay looks like it can be very versatile as well. I like the potential.

Perhaps if enough people get it SOny will realize how big the want for 3D platformers actually is and go buy Crash Bandicoot back from Acti-poop-sion.

funny you mention this: who is Knacks creator?

well take a look at this , a very big Hint:

Crash Bandicoot you say?

Mark Cerny (born 1964) is a video game industry figure who has worked as a game designer, programmer, producer and business executive

He has worked extensively with Naughty Dog (on the Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter series and the first Uncharted game), Insomniac Games (on the Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet and Clank series and Resistance series), and Sony.

Thats right the Lead System Architect for PS4 is the Daddy of crash !

Grin, how many people over looked this i do not know how...wide Grin..the PS4 is true to life in great Hands in my opinion.

Since Knack looks like he's made from knick-knacks, I just hope they don't name any one in the game Knick or Paddy-Whack...

Or give a dog a bone...
brave27heart  +   569d ago
Please let there be an old irish guy propped up in the corner of a bar called Paddy Whack.
Robotronfiend  +   569d ago
Including an Irish character named Paddy Whack = +1 review score.
Docknoss  +   569d ago
This looks like one of those casual games that 10 year olds play
Relientk77  +   569d ago
Well said man, definitely on my buy list

ApolloTheBoss  +   570d ago
Oh yeah I'm definitely playing this.

“We hate to see all the PS4 games being FPS or action-adventure or very photorealistic,” Shuhei Yoshida.

I can't believe how sensible Sony are being!! Unless they're just cashing in on a certain zeitgeist and don't really care about the experiences that much... Mark Cerny's cool though, he should just run Sony, together with an equally cool Japanese person since it is a Japanese company.
showtimefolks  +   569d ago
Well you look at ps3 and not everything was FPS or action adventure

Sony has a long history of delivering variety and that's why we their fanbase like them so much
Prcko  +   570d ago
i think we gonna have plenty of fun in this game :)
ElitaStorm  +   570d ago
last time i got resistance:fall of men when i got my ps3 this time will get this when i get the ps4 :)
dafegamer  +   570d ago
your avatar looks familiar o.o???
Sitris  +   569d ago
Not something you want to openly admit to a girlfriend if you have one mate ;) as that hamster may have an X at the start of it.....
dafegamer  +   569d ago
@Sitris lol your comment made my day. True about the girlfriend thing, but its good when both enjoy watching it, if you know what I mean ;)
chrish1990  +   569d ago

ninjahunter  +   569d ago

Robotronfiend  +   569d ago
I would get a remake or HD update for Killer Instinct though. In on day 1 for Primal Rage remake too.
PurpHerbison  +   569d ago
Few folks will bring up Killer Instinct and kudos for that... But you sir, brought up Primal Rage. Good stuff.
nick309  +   570d ago
Announce crash exclusively for ps4 and the internet servers worldwide will crash.
Williamson  +   570d ago
The game looks like its going to give a fresh experience, looks and the details sounds really interesting.
dynamite_twins  +   570d ago

DivineAssault  +   569d ago
interesting looking platformer.. I hope it ends up deep, challenging, & immersive.. Lets see how this one turns out but i think its going to be sleeper hit
Freedomland  +   569d ago
PUMP UP THE VOLUME.
TemplarDante  +   569d ago
Mark Cerny was instrumental in creating Crash Bandicoot, oh, I miss those old days. I hope Knack brings the platformers back and leads with innovation also.
joeorc  +   569d ago
100% awesome agreement, and look what else:

Once Again, this guy's experience speaks for itself. he is one out of 17 total inducted Member's in the freaking Hall of Fame of The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences: that is since 1998!

http://www.prnewswire.com/n...

one out of 17 total:

he ranks up there with the likes of

Shigeru Miyamoto,Sid Meier,Hironobu Sakaguchi,John D. Carmack,Will Wright,Yu Suzuki,Peter Molyneux,Trip Hawkins,Richard Garriott,Dani Bunten,Michael Morhaime,Bruce Shelley,Ray Muzyka & Greg Zeschuk,Tim Sweeney, and last but not least Gabe Newell.

People i say look at their contributions to gaming and you will see exactly why they are there in the Hall of fame!

I like the concepts that the game has. It's without a doubt a day one launch title buy for me.

Here is an easy one to predict: Knack is going to be featured on PS4's box like Sackboy.
goldwyncq  +   569d ago
Playstation has a knack for getting the best platformers.
WickedLester  +   569d ago
Come launch day I will walk out of the store with a copy of Knack and Killzone: SF. I love platformers and let's be honest, you just dont find games like this on Xbox.
Qrphe  +   569d ago
The graphics for this game are mindblowing, I'm definitely interested in this.
