Jimmy Fallon shows off live demo gameplay of Knack on Late Night
Knack looks great!
Now if ND please continue the jak series
>.> do people not like the Jak and Dexter series ? I loved it and I would enjoy another if the sequal was even better.
Cerny is like one man Naughty Dog ;)
God, with all the Microsoft blundering, including Spencer sounding like some PR megaphone when Xbone was on Kimmel, Sony shows up with Cerny and it's Classy Hour on Fallon. That guy. Develops Marble Madness back in the day, designs the PS4, develops Knack, and still manages to talk circles around the business guys. Sony made the right freaking move.
Even in a small segment they still find a way to mention the used game and no drm stuff, haha. I know this isn't anything major, but he does say we can upload to Youtube. I guess that debunks the whole "only on facebook" speculation some people brought up earlier.
I loved the fact that he mentioned YouTube, I'm not a big fan of Ustream so YT would definitely be my first choice.
well spotted, i was just about to comment that.
Don't forget you can live stream on youtube too.
Why Knack? Geez, should have been something cool.
Im wondering the same thing, Infamous:SS looks insane, Knack...i dont know...
Guess your not from the PS1 era then... Knack > COD(And all shooters apart from those coming on PS4)
I'm 26, first memories are of gaming. My era is NES, son. Knack just looks like shit, straight up. I hate wannabe creative garbage, it's also why I hate most indie games. Also, CoD will be on PS4, you should know that. FTR, PS1 is among my favorite systems, easily top ten. Chrono Cross, FF 8-9 plus Tactics...it was RPG heaven.
Maybe to some gamers but not to the mass market TV viewers. KZSF should have been used to wow the audience. Knack doesn't 'wow' even if it ends up a very fun game to play! Infamous SS would be my second choice, that space needle scene looks true next gen.
so u hate the creative things wow. the most dumbest thing i have ever heard.
@Hadoukameha Knack looks like shit? You don't know Mark Cerny I presume, and how much he has helped the gaming community way back then and now.
And Cerny owns up to it on stage - he talks about how there will be plenty of core games out there, so this is what he's been working on. Which had precedent - Xbone didn't go on Fallon with a shooter or action game, they went on with Forza, because everyone watching that show probably drives or rides in a car, the viewers get it en masse. Ps4 just looked way better, especially because they had an industry giant on stage talking like a real person.
Only Sony is allowed to have a semi core family style game like Knack. I personally think it looks neat and fun. But godforbid if this was on any other machine. Not creative, Not innovative, and certainly NOT core enough.
I'm more interested in Knack than all Killzones and Infamous together.
Damn that PS4 looks sexy
Seems like SONY doesn't have better argument to sell the PS4 against the X1. Come on SONY everybody knows about used games......lets talk about Games and what the PS4 offers!
I do not worry about games from Sony. You get all multiplats + all the exclusive games from owned IPs or owned Studios. They will come sooner or later. There is no need to worry ^^
I'm not worry either but seems to me that they are more focus in showing the apparently weakness of the X1 than the power and the features of the PS4. I mean the E3 SONY's CONFERENCE was about the used games and everywhere they go just talk about it, SONY has so much to show about the powerful PS4, why focus on this? It is was ok at E3 but that's it. I've learn that Microsoft and SONY are offering different products but Microsoft are trying to show what's new in the X1 and SONY just show what they keep from PS3.
Sony doesnt need to talk about games PS fans already know what will come to them, sony will constantly pumping aaa exclusives from their great and proven in-house developer while m$ investing 1billions for new ip with weak and unproven developer (insomniac fuse lol, dead rising 2 meta 78 new game probably same, killer instinct double helix lol, crytek with repetitive hack&slash QTE romans that shouting and acting like US marines ryse, etc) makes me wonder why xboners hyping they so called great exclusives from that kind of developers it probably turns out to be mediocre games...and some timed exclusives And here i am right here right now enjoying new goty 95 meta IP last of us from ND while xboners with 360 dried like desserts and having their mouth shutted with m$ balls So yeah SONY doesnt need to talk about games they're far much credible than m$ in that departement
So you think SONY just sell their products to the fans.....think again. Is a new product and they have to show what it is capable of. You guys always said is about games now you just trust, lol!
Well sony deliver with ps3 cannot say the same about m$, i see the same pattern with xbone just like 360 bait the core gamer by flooding with exclusives which most of them are timed in early cycles of new console life then forsaken them until next generation arrives while sony will gradually keep making exclusives Even without showing many games sony owned m$ in pre-order lol
I personally wouldn't have shown Knack, their are other titles I think show the system off alot better but that's just a matter of taste i guess
Well, but it's Cerny's game, and he's the one they invited.
I know, the audience sounded suitably impressed too, but I think driveclub or shadows fall would have wowed more from a graphics point of view...
The quality of the video doesn't really do the game any justice.
They already showed kz sf a hardcore first person shooter on jimmy fallon, they wanted to show variety. It's not all about first person shooters or what you like, not everyone is an action game fanatic. Thankfully playstation brings the best games in all genres
it seems most of the gamer community only care about shooters. i for one was glad they showed a different game. they just arent trying to sell to core gamers, but also causal/family oriented gamers as well.
I was hoping watch dogs MP Gameplay, or a new IP or maybe car club! but why KNACK?! Its great don't get me wrong, though it doesn't appeal my taste. But why didn't Sony still not show us more footage of their new AI...
this actually made me consider getting knack. Looks like the old school fun plat formers
Everything is going right for sony this time and they deserve all the credit. Just showing knack and not driveclub or other high graphical games is probably another way of saying we have nothing to worry about this gen. Last gen was rough but they managed to pull through not like ms pulling out with the first xbox.
looks interesting, ill keep my eye out for this game
Getting Mark Cerny as the console's lead architect was the best thing Sony could have done, looking forward to seeing what the PS4 will do down the Road. Thanks Mark
Crash and Katamari? Like if the game didnt look fun before!
Eww, why not infamous?
probably because inFamous is not coming out until early next year.
Doesn't anyone remember Sony already having a demo of Killzone: SF on Jimmy Fallon back in Feb....personally Infamous may have been a better choice, but I understand them going with Knack...not only is it inviting to kids, it also gives Mark Cerny his much deserved 15 minutes of fame...hell he is the system architect
but is not that it is a game for kids but the gameplay looks truly mediocre.
Cerny look like a nerd. lol
Wow, totally interested in Knack now!
UMFG!!! i love this game already, really is a nice throwback to classic style platformers/beat'emups. this will be my Day 1 game when i get my PS4 for sure
wow to the comments if you listened to mark cerny you would of hear him say that he wanted to make sure families have something to play and not just games for the core audience. gheeze people not everyone wants to see headshots and bullets flying around. just look at the super mario and sonic games - how many years old and theyre still being made? Knack looks great and will be a great for me and my 5 yr old nephew to play together when its released.
Seriously, true gamers enjoy more than one genre of games. My daughter will love Knack.
I was more impressed with that showing. It's for kids as well, looked fun. Very nice visuals. And has alot of time until release. As do all the games. Killzone shadow fall was already shown on fallon's show. It's good to show variety.
