Mark Cerny on PS4: “Cerny Did an Amazing Job”

The upcoming PlayStation console could very well be Cerny’s platform of choice.

Mark Cerny, the lead architect behind PlayStation 4, has nothing but warm words when speaking about the upcoming console.

“It’s simply perfect. The controller is just the right size, the console fits nicely into my living room shelf and at a 399$ price point I can afford the console during a busy holiday season. Mark Cerny did a great job designing a platform that suits me”, Mark Cerny told a fully seated auditorium during his “Road to the PS4″ presentation last Friday.

[SATIRE] (Dev, Next-Gen, PS4)

Change "great job" to an "amazing job" that would be a better statement.
360ICE  +   276d ago
Good point, actually!
I should probably stop taking creative freedoms on N4G.

reffering to the title, did Mark Cerny just called himself in 3rd person? lol
ShinMaster  +   276d ago
Should point out that this is SATIRE, before any fools make any "PR bs" comments bellow.

Looks like Mark Cerny did some time traveling from the future to congratulate present day Mark Cerny to tell him that he did an amazing job.

Another top feature of ps4, time travelling ;)

Now we need someone from Xbox future to come and tell them in present time how Shit of a job they did.
Greatness AAAwaits.

Seeing Sony dig themselves out of the hold they originally made is what assures me Nintendo will be ok.

The same things being said about Wii U now were being said about PS3 ( not all the same but some ).

Look where they were and what they have become again.

The reason I bring this up is that the same fools shouting "Nintendo is dead" are the same fools who were shouting " Sony is dead" only 5-6 years ago.

Point being, have patience and good things will happen.

You have to love people that speak of themselves in the third person
Fishy Fingers  +   276d ago
Ha, well fortunately, this article is satire, the quotes are fabricated. Only a douche talks about themselves in 3rd person and Cerny certainly is not.
Heisenburger  +   276d ago
Heisenburger agrees....

;)
badz149  +   276d ago
OMG...we need Cookiegaki or Pizzagaki or Pancakegaki or whatever his name is like RIGHT NOW! lol he's the epitome of 3rd person!
TrevorPhillips  +   276d ago
Mark did an outstanding job! Much love and respect to him :)
Snookies12  +   276d ago
"At the end of the day, I want to be able to turn off the console, particularly the PS camera, so that I can do dark stuff in the comfort of my own living room. Cerny understands this better than anyone."

Lol! That is so wrong... I love him speaking in third person too.
mrmancs  +   276d ago
Mark cerny give yourself a pat on the back , no actually don't , I will do it for you :-)
extermin8or  +   276d ago
It's amusing but this is the second or 3rd article from this site i've seen using the same gag-a person discussing themselves in the 3rd person. It's going to just get old fast and make the site appear like a one trick pony if they do it again. Really they need to try some other ways of doing satirical writing.
PixeledCourier  +   276d ago
Yeah, we did the same with Pachter. However, at this point we have several stories on hold, so we just pick the ones that seem relevant at the time. This is the last "3rd person talking"-article on the list, so you can rest safely.
AzureskyZ  +   276d ago
Yeah well I would hope so, i mean the dude been in the industry for quite some time and considered the steve jobs of video games.
gamertk421  +   276d ago
Considered the Steve Jobs of video games...by Sony fans.
extermin8or  +   276d ago
Go wikipedia him.... the mans past is.. impressive to say the least.
shivvy24  +   276d ago
He helped start up Naughty dog and Insomniac , worked on crash, spyro, ratchet , jak , uncharted , resistance and created the ps4 ! This guy has had an amazing career !
AzureskyZ  +   276d ago
Not only did he have a huge impact in sony's first party the dude influenced Sega to a great degree. But this wouldn't interest a pathetic troll like yourself so moving on to the next topic...
Sevir  +   276d ago
He didn't work on the Xbox One so he's insignificant to people who started gaming at the end of the 360's life cycle or to people who own only a 360... So fanboys like gamertk421 wouldn't know any better... Run along little troll, run along
gamertk421  +   276d ago
Sorry, been gaming since Pong in the 70's, so yeah, not so much. During PS1 heyday I was a PC gamer, and Xbox is the natural console progression from that, since I didn't like jrpg's, metal gear or gran Turismo. Nice try, though.
ape007  +   276d ago
all my respect for this guy, he is a veteran in the gaming business, I'll buy knack just for him, lol j/k i'll get the game cause it looks good (and for him)
No_Limit  +   276d ago
How many Mark Cerny article do we need? The guy could literally be taking a dump and it will be huge news on N4G.
Jiggy7d  +   276d ago
It will take years for MS to recover from this....but they will eventually....they will have to respond to absolutely everything that makes PS4 a better console in the eyes of most gamers at the moment.But they are facing an uphill battle.....I still hope Xbox survives...cause competition is good gor gamers and as much as I love Playstation...I don't want Sony to get to comfortable or relaxed.....let's not forget...the success of xbox360 made Sony learn from their mistakes and made them work harder.
dcj0524  +   276d ago
You copied a pasted this comment lol. I read this exact comment on another cerny article.
Jiggy7d  +   276d ago
Lol I never copy other people's words dummy....I'm expressing an opinion which is shared by many...just cause it sounds similiar don't mean it's been copied - idiot.
king_george  +   276d ago
considering ive heard nothing but praise on all the major websites out there id say he did an incredible job. cant wait to get my hands on that awesome box
CEOSteveBallmer  +   276d ago
Greatness awaits!! Oh don't mind my avatar and name :-D,
WorldGamer  +   276d ago
Worldgamer on his comment. "Worldgamer did an amazing job". lol. Classic.

OT:
I agree with this article.
Sorraxe  +   276d ago
There is a difference from Mark and for example Don Mattrick. You have Mattrick who came from Ea to MS, and now from MS to Zynga with failure in his asset.

Then you have Mark who came to Sony what, 96? if am not mistaken and stayed at Sony Since then.

I think if those idiots would stop jumping fences time to time, they might be successful

Mark Cerny looks like mr rogers son
