Mark Cerny Talks About How They Built the PS4: “It has What we Think it Needs”

well obviously. Because MS is the only one who customizes their consoles or has good software engineers.

GamersRulz  +   346d ago
I'm afraid this gen will be MS last, just like Sega.

both killed by Sony
Regis  +   346d ago
Jeez guys I'm JOKING its hard to display sarcasm over the Internet.

@JuniorCE I did like to believe in sweet things,but thanks to my parents I can't have nice things.

@GamerRulz youre afraid? im praying for this gen to be the MS last, so samsumg can buy it and actually make something good from xbox
dmitrijs88  +   345d ago
only 5? write 50, then we will believe.
miyamoto  +   345d ago
Sony did not kill Sega.

In fact Sony and Sega of America already had a proposal for a 32 bit console turned down by Sega Japan even before Ken Kutaragi proposed to Nintendo.


Get your facts straight.

Sony was just an experienced consumer electronics master at that time.

Simply the BEST console ever.

With respect to the PS2.
dcj0524  +   345d ago
I like the ps4 but it can't be the best until it at least comes out.
ZHZ90  +   346d ago

Even MS admited it.

EDIT: PS4 will defintely be great as PS1/PS2 era and better than PS3 era by the well of God.

I can't wait to make the PS4 my First Sony console ever.

The thing is, when Cerny takes a "guess" at what we will need or we may want 5 years into the future, the result we get is the PS4.

When other companies do it, we get pay to play, microtransaction, filler, shovelware.

Your first sony console? Dude where have you been th past few decades?
Godmars290  +   346d ago
Likely off topic, but kind of odd if not another mark against MS that they have - had? - a spokesman who tried to defend his stance by saying he had nothing to do with designing the XB1, and here Sony has as their key spokesman the guy who designed the PS4. So he has no excuse in not knowing what he's talking about.
iamnsuperman  +   346d ago
Well Microsoft do need a guy like this but it can also back fire if not done correctly. Microsoft (as a whole) has been trying to shake a nerdy image for some time (since the rise of Apple and their pretentiousness). I know it is bad to say this but having a geeky guy at the front can be quite damaging because it can make the device seem geeky and uncool. Saying that, Cerny has been doing very well to not portray that image (which is helped by other PR guys making the device seem cooler leaving him to just talk about the specs to those who care). If Microsoft were going to do it they need to be careful about how they do it (balance)

I don't think MS will do it anyway. Its clearly Sony's marketing strategy is "we have the most powerful console". While MS strategy is "All in one". Anyway in the end PS4 is more powerful so i don't see the point of MS playing a game they know they'll loose.

thehitman  +   346d ago
TBH w/ all the celebrities they hire 1 geeky guy wouldnt hurt them. But then again it would help if that "geeky" guy could actually boast and talk about their product in confidence and not hide the discrepancies in less power compared to the competition.
Godmars290  +   346d ago
@u got owned:

At this point Sony's message is, "We're honest" or at least more foreword in what we say than the other guy.
WeAreLegion  +   346d ago
I think the majority of people don't care if someone is "geeky" or "nerdy" anymore. We're more concerned with a spokesperson being real with us.

Just look at the current successful marketing campaigns. Cool can only get you so far. Respect is more powerful.
miyamoto  +   345d ago
M$ can not afford idiots speaking anymore for them like Greenberg, Tsunoda, Molyneux, Hryb Major Nelson, and that anti-nuclear sub guy Mattrick.

And Sony only needs one honest to goodness genius man to speak.
FamilyGuy  +   345d ago
Who was the lead architect on the Xbox One anyway? O.o

Tried googling it but it seems they never mention one.

That would be a good slogan.

Ps4. It has what I need.

Where's my meme generator?

Xbox One.
Deal With It.

lol! That will probably hold true in its entire life cycle.

Play More and More

"If we have great games, people will come"

Wow, that is damn deep.

Thats why iam buying a PS4 day one.
WeAreLegion  +   346d ago
Cerny is all about inspirational sports movies starring Kevin Costner.
swishersweets20031  +   346d ago
Needs more cowbell!
PositiveEmotions  +   346d ago
What if the ps4 has sony vegas pro now that would be awesome!!
WeAreLegion  +   346d ago
That would be, but I hope they rework some stuff. It's not the most friendly software out there and so many cheaper solutions are outclassing it, as far as options go.

Cyberlink PowerDirector is a lot cheaper and it has the highest rating on CNET. I recommend it.

Still, Vegas would be a nice addition.
JunioRS101  +   346d ago
Mark Cerny... The occult is waiting.
stuna1  +   346d ago
Sony should make a commercial like the old justice league! Where they have the hero's on the left, and the villains on rhe right rushing toward each other.
KontryBoy706  +   346d ago
Sony... make sure you take out the HDCP from gameplay. People want to use their external capture devices. we don't want to see Youtube dominated by Xbox Ones.
mixelon  +   345d ago
Use the splitter work-around? Youtube has many vids explaining what you need to do it, but basically;

http://www.amazon.com/Sewel... - bypasses HDCP entirely, and there's no reason to think it won't work on PS4 too.
KontryBoy706  +   345d ago
yeah true I looked into this afterwards. It would still be more convenient for them to create a way to enable HDCP with blu-ray movies and disable it with games
Sadist3  +   345d ago
I sincerely hope none of you fools in this comment section play online with me when the PS4 comes out. You guys sound like idiots, probably are those fools that scream and shout like 10 year olds when playing online games. The comments you make, geez I wonder why people think gamers are idiots. Say something smart and stop worshipping a freaking company. Get a girl or something.
tuglu_pati  +   345d ago
lol... says the guy posting in a gaming website /jk

In all seriousness i agree but what else can you expect from N4G. This website is fuel for the fans, and while some of us complain about it, we keep coming back for more ;)
ZHZ90  +   345d ago
I have no interset to play online with a kid like you.
Hicken  +   345d ago
One of the most ignorant, most immature posters on the site, calling for others to be smart and marking them as "fools" and "idiots."
tuglu_pati  +   345d ago
double post :/

Honesty is best policy. I don't believe Ceny is trying hype the PS4. He helped build it, so likely knows it inside out.
cyclindk  +   345d ago
Love? Every console needs a little lovi'n. Come to me PS4 and I will love you, always.
DistroyerOfFanbums  +   345d ago
It has a decent GPU, works for me..
