Today during Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia’s Press Conference a trailer of Mark Cerny’s PS4 exclusive Knack was broadcasted.
Sony's first party devs have always been great at telling stories. Pretty graphics are great but to keep the adult gamer interested you need a good story. This original IP exclusive for the PS4 is just another example of that creativeness coming through.
Killzone is the exact opposite of what you described. Pretty graphics, horrible storytelling. I suppose when the game has great graphics, that's what will focus on and say Sony's first party always been great at graphics...the same when it is gameplay heavy and so on? Love the subtle hint that adults only game on PlayStation. Lol you guys are the best.
The story telling in Killzone isnt Terrible or horrible, its just not anything to write home about. But Shadow Fall looks to surprise everyone at launch so i wouldnt write GG off till youve experienced Shadow Fall.
They've managed to keep the storytelling at meh levels with all KZ games so far, I don't see how Shadow Fall will change that. They do make pretty games though. They are the Crytek of PlayStation.
Knack is one kiddy game. My little cousin will love it.
I got Jak and Daxter Hd from ps+, and now my childhood hunger for platformers came back. Knack. You're next.
Knack doesn't look like a platformer though, just a dumb beat em up heavy on story.
Well I know what I'm saying, go check the 10 minute gameplay video.

This new trailer actually got me excited for Knack again. Props Sony.
: ) Can't wait to buy this. The translator makes me ROFL! X D I love hearing engrish.
Won't be picking this up at launch.. but just because Cerny made it.. for that reason alone, i WILL be getting knack.
Variety is the spice of life , it is commendable that Sony stuck it's head out to produce knack for younger gamers in mind , not just another generic first person shooter featuring big robotic suits and guns... *cough*
Killzone has mechs. Just going to leave that there.
In my mind, I already own this game. It's now simply down to getting the PS4 console and this game for it.
Is this a $60 game?
Just bought Puppeteer for 40 and its receiving great reviews and is a full fledged plat former, so knack better be around same price!
It could be... since Japan PS4 owners will apparently be getting Knack for (through PS+ maybe?) free, though i don't mind paying the full 60 bucks for this game.
now that you've mentioned Puppeteer, what a game! it's not something that you can come out over night with and it's so good! full of adventure and full of humor too. I'm still only at Act 3 but wow...the level of creativity and originality put into it is unbelievable considering it's a gen end game! oh and Knack is already on my must buy list! I'm gonna be so broke comes new year!
I think this game will prove more challenging than brain dead soldiers swarming you and standing still to be executed ROFL. Btw looking forward to this game.
Every hands-on I've seen looks very beautiful, but I can't ignore the barren streets, awkward camera and apparent lack of platforming, looks more like a brawler with very basic combat. I'll wait to read some reviews before I add this to my PS4 games list.
