Knack looks Cack! and the developer who was presenting it looked like he had been tea bagged too many times in the face!
The first confirmed game for the PlayStation 4 is Knack, a 3D platformer announced by system lead architect Mark Cerny.
At Wednesday's PlayStation Meeting, PlayStation 4 lead design architect Mark Cerny presented the first confirmed game for the just-announced console: Knack.
A trailer followed the announcement. The game is apparently a 3D platformer featuring a small robot called Knack, who can grow much, much larger than he initially appears. Based on what the trailer showed, he can also become transparent and walk unharmed through lasers. Later in the presentation, Cerny showed how Knack would be compatible with the PlayStation 4's remote play feature by playing the game on a PlayStation Vita via remote play.
The trailer displayed the logo for Japan Studio, known for games like Ape Escape and LocoRoco. GameSpot will bring you more on Knack--and on the PlayStation 4--as information becomes available.
Can't help but feel they missed a trick here... of all the games to show off a new console they choose this one?
It is true the ps4 won't be a powerhouse but the people insulting it need to realize that isn't possible. The console market will die if everyone tries to go the power route. I think Sony may have found the right balance between the Wii approach and the ps3/360. Decent hardware improvement while staying with efficient dependable(well I hope so at least) hardware. The ps3/360 both had some problems because of the excessive focus on pushing out strong hardware in consoles.
@Vodoo where did yo usee gameplay in this video?
To those those that say this isn't a huge graphical upgrade, that's true. But look at launch games for the 360 and PS3 like Folklore or Elements of Power. THey look AWFUL compared to today's standards. The real parades occur during the system's life cycle.
@nickscho Don't forget that the broadcast of the conference was shown in a max 480 resolution so whatever game showings we saw weren't having their full HD graphics potential shown off to us viewers. Have a strong feeling that everything that was shown looks so much better in person.
Gasp a NEW 3D platformer? Has the platformer truly returned as a genre? Ok Sony you have my attention.
@kbaily can you list three new genres that have never been done before, or, at least (to make it easier for you) two that have not been influenced by other genres?
Cerny worked with Crash Bandicoot, Jak, Ratchet. When he said he was working on a title, I really hoped, wishing, wanting it to be a Crash or Jak game. : / Was really hoping to.
Knack looks interesting enough and I hope will be great anw.
@Flamerdragon I don't care for any of those games really but Knack does look like it could provide some fun. Nothing revolutionary exactly but it didn't look horrible.
.... PS3 till the real Ps4 comes out not any PS3.5
For people who dont care about social networking this is a real waste
LOL I am so dissapointed so far with the ps4 announcement, tho I do expect better graphics and hopefully AI. What good is something that looks real but doesnt act it.
Am I the only one who will be skipping out on the ps4? There are still so many ps3 games to play
@Bordonaro the real ps4 press show wil be at e3 2013
Also the fact that the controller has a facebook button...really? Are they even trying to appeal to gamers anymore?
@Bordonaro It's like when they introduced the windows button on keyboards and I kept pressing it by mistake all the time when playing games on PC lol
Useless button on a game controller.
Seriously, why even say that? I'm more of an xbox fan than a playstation fan, but I'm here reading because I'm interested and excited to see what the PS4 has for us gamers. Like Shadow said, shut up.
@koBe_zero Shut up, Meg.
@badwedgie00 I thought the same thing, that it looked like something Pixar would make.
Consider me totally uninterested. Nothing about the game looked particularly interesting.
