Sony asked members of the PlayStation online forums for their questions to put to Mark Cerny, PS4 system architect and creator of Knack - and here are the answers from the man himself.
"What do you have to say to all the journos disregarding PS4's power over Xbox One?" "And what's your take on these same journos claiming that gamers won't be able to see the difference?" These are the two questions I'd love to ask Cerny-san.
the only thing i want Mark Cerny to do is give a Full UI tutorial and really go into detail.
But he's the hardware architect....why not have the head software engineer on the ps4 os explain why it so efficiet with mark cernys design? An efficient and light resource hungry os os just as important as the hardware in the box.
well they can join him too no biggie but we need that mark Cerny voice.
1. Do u ever go outside to get any sun ? 2. How much money do dorks like u make a year?
Why is Knack "not" 1080p @ 60fps? Why does Knack "not" have "Campaign" co-op? Why is Killzone:SF not 1080p @ 60fps in the campaign? Why does Killzone:SF not have "Campaign" co-op?
He seems like such a laid back, good guy. Unlike many other big names in the gaming industry, i don't get the sense of sleaziness or political slyness from Mark Cerny. Just down to earth and honest. I think i'll rent Knack, it does seem like a blatant nod back to the Crash Bandicoot type traditional platformer game, the fact it looks like a Disney movie is also cool.
Bit of a child prodigy too. Or that could be selling it a little too high, but he's one intelligent mo'fo.
No, he's a literal genius. You're not selling it too high.
Rent KNACK!!!! BLASPHEMER :). i do agree with you about mark cerny the way he portrays himself is just class. i have to admit i never knew about him until the ps4 reveal and since then i have been watching interviews talking about the ps4, knack he just seems to get both from a developers mentality to what gamers want.
It's not really my sort of game, but im making an exception, hence the rent :)
What's it feel like to be the guy who created the most powerful console to date?? @Ezzo Haters and certain people who can't handle the truth.
who is disagreeing with that ?! and why ?! @icicletrepan do you really think that's the only reason for the disagrees ?!
Probably because it wasn't just him working on it. @ezz: No I don't. It could be any reason, or no reason. But it's logical to say that he did not personally create the entire PS4. A large team would have done it. A team that he was in charge of, but those who give Cerny all the credit really take away from the efforts of a great many people.
@Majin-vegeta It's not even a debate. How many times have they come out and said "The most powerful console ever made"? How many times has AYBODY said otherwise? Exactly! If there was ever any question about it, you know Microsoft would jump all over it!! They've got the most powerful gaming camera ever made, and that's it. PERIOD.
Whenever someone at Microsoft speaks all I hear and see is smoke and mirrors. When mark Verny speaks I believe him an trust him
M$ PR Team are a bunch of Old Spice smelling ex used car salesmen in check suits!
Yes! Greasy haired slick car salesmen...M$ at its finest..
Question 1. Who bought that shirt? Question 2. Were all of your other shirts in the wash?
All of his choice of shirts tends to be a little... bold? Normally he has the plaid or checkered shirt going on but his shirts always make a statement. His hair style also isn't winning any awards. It's a trait you see a lot in extremely smart people. They are so concerned with other things that their own appearance tends to bother them very little.
Oh, thank God. I thought I was just a slob. Turns out...I'm a freakin' genius. :)
@Legion There is that possibility that you're just a plain slob...me included :P
This is weak! Show me real good games plz
They did in the background, you're just blinded by the filth that Microsoft calls games.
The guy's awesome, no doubt. But every time I hear him talk, I feel like he should have an afro and a paintbrush.
Ha bubble for the comical reference!
Thank you, sir! Always appreciated.
He's a really nice, humble guy. I can't wait for Knack. I know some people think it looks a bit boring, but this guy worked on Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter. I have no doubt Knack will be a great launch title for the PS4
BOB ROSS!!! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Everybody loves Bob Ross. Damn thing is that I've never seen him finish a painting, since I fall asleep from his voice about 10 mins in.
I love listening to this guy talk. He's awesome. His voice is so mellow. If I ever develop a life-threatening disease, I want Mark Cerny to be the one to break the news to me. Somehow I feel if I heard it first with his calm voice, I'd feel a lot better about it.
You realize that you have the greatest Avatar in the history of Avatars. "Hi-Ho. Kermit the Frog here for Sesame Street News."
Such an awesome guy.
I feel entertained every time I listen to this dude lol. best part is he is a true gamer at heart. very admirable man. good job mark :)
Mark Cerny should do audio books. Every audio book.
He should be the narrator for lbp3
makes me laugh mark cerny gets a video put up and everyone goes proper gay for him . i just don't see wh…….oh wait ???what ?? ok i just got the twitch too :-/
Knack? Seriously Mark? You created this powerful machine and to showcase it, your first offering is Knack?!
What's wrong with Knack? It looks awesome.
Cerny has a calming voice and presence about him and I believe anyone would enjoy having a discusion with him.
he's such a passionate person!
