Mark Cerny was the mastermind behind the PlayStation 4 and helped design one of Sony’s latest games. Officially, though, he has no responsibilities.
"outside Sony’s chain of command, allowing him to follow his interests across projects and avoid bureaucratic roadblocks." That's the dream.
This guy might have one of the best jobs out there.
Yeah, but he didn't reach that sweet spot of his career easily. He worked hard and a lot, I believe.
Few probably know, and fewer understand, that the PlayStation 3 was considered "a step backwards." Here's the magically exciting part: With wizard Mark Cerny directly in charge of two back-to-back PlayStation hardware architectural processes, the PS5 is poised to be truly next gen.
It will be very interesting to see where PS5 will go.
Mark Cerny was also in charge of PS4 Pro, and that turned out to be a disappointment, so I hope he learned some lessons there for PS5. Also, keep that compatibility in PS5 with enhancements, not butterfly mirrored chip disabling. I have mad respect for Cerny as he seemed like an incredibly humble guy. I rarely hear him speak though.
The pro was just for UHD tv owners.. $100 more than a standard PS4.. If this guy builds the PS5, it will be interesting.. Especially after seeing microsoft play their hand..
Hmmmm...interesting—I've been thoroughly enjoying my Pro. Especially games like Destiny 2, Horizon Zero Dawn and Witcher III. (Well those and basically every single game on PS4.) And, yes, Mark Cerny is a quiet guy. He doesn't exactly communicate on the same level as most individuals—he's from another 'planet' of thinking. Which is fine—because his designs reflect the same awesome characteristic. Still, pretty oddly unique guy.
For someone named spreadlove, you sure do spread a lot of hate, unless MS or Xbox are involved.
Silly gameAr— didn't notice anything particularly negative.
He was referring to spreadlove's comment and I quote: "Mark Cerny was also in charge of PS4 Pro, and that turned out to be a disappointment" That sounds pretty negative to me lol. That is his opinion though, so it's cool. I on the other hand cannot go back to a regular PS4, since I have been enjoying the PS4 Pro with games like GT:Sport, Ratchet and Clank, Horizon, Uncharted 4 (And Lost Legacy) The Last of US to name a few. Not being able to play those games at 4K and HDR would be truly disappointing to me.
I am looking forward to what he comes up with for PS5. With how he handled PS4 and the late switch to 8GB GDDR5 -that surprised everyone, PS5 will be magical indeed.
Dudes a legend and glad Sony have him on board.
Sony know how to valu talents. Just look at how quickly they picked up kojima
I have nothing than respect for what Mark Cerny did for the PS4 and the PS4pro. I think he is a genius. I iam glad that Sony saw that Cerny had a fantastic idea for making the PS4. And that Sony put a lot of trust in him. Hell, in the last week before the hardware was set in stone the PS4 had when i remember well, had at that moment 4 GDDR5 memory. And Mark Cerny was the one that sayd: "lets give the PS4 8 GDDR5 memory." And Sony trusted Mark Cerny enough to let him do that. That was the best decision Sony made, when the PS4 would have only 4 GDDR5 memory, the the PS4 and Sony would not have the succes that it was right out of the gate till now.
Guys a genius, created one of my favourite arcade games ever! MARBLE MADNESS :)
Mr Cerny, please, a sequel/remake of Marble Madness with 4K graphics on the PS4 Pro, with optional six-axis controls to tilt the tray-thing (the level), and an optional 1st-person view from inside the sphere, with an appropriate sound palette depending on what material the sphere is made of, with many spheres to choose from with each one its own physics, with hidden paths...it could be fun. Please.
If he has a twitter account, that would be a better for him to receive your message.
Ayo man whats up with that weak ass CPU. Wheres my 60 fps? I give him props but overall the PS4 wasn't enough.
Love this guy!
Mark Cerny also worked on Vita
An enjoyable read.
