"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.

Angels37851834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

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.

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.

pyramidshead1834d ago

Bit of a child prodigy too. Or that could be selling it a little too high, but he's one intelligent mo'fo.

WeAreLegion1834d ago

No, he's a literal genius. You're not selling it too high.

Mikelarry1834d ago


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.

GarrusVakarian1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

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.

Ezz20131834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

who is disagreeing with that ?!
and why ?!

do you really think that's the only reason for the disagrees ?!

IcicleTrepan1834d ago (Edited 1834d ago )

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.

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.

Rickgrimes951834d ago

Whenever someone at Microsoft speaks all I hear and see is smoke and mirrors. When mark Verny speaks I believe him an trust him

Question 1. Who bought that shirt?
Question 2. Were all of your other shirts in the wash?

ruefrak1834d ago

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.

WeAreLegion1834d ago

Oh, thank God. I thought I was just a slob. Turns out...I'm a freakin' genius. :)

dredgewalker1834d ago

There is that possibility that you're just a plain included :P
