    Mark Cerny hopes that sonys legacy gets as good as nintendos

    PS4 architect Mark Cerny hopes PlayStation's legacy can match Nintendo's • News • PlayStation 4 • Eurogamer.net

    Mark Cerny has told a conference in Spain that he dreams of PlayStation having the same kind of enduring impact on the games industry as Nintendo.

    "I have a great friend who lives in Kyoto in the eastern part of Japan," Cerny told an audience at Gamelab in Barcelona earlier today.

    "He runs a developer there and he's worked with both Sony Computer Entertainment and Nintendo over the years, and he says that what he respects the most about Nintendo is the incredible continuity they have in the form of a core group of individuals that has now worked together for over 30 years.

    "Well, we on the PlayStation side of the business have only about 20 years together now, but I'm really looking forward to the next decade or two with Shu [Yoshida], Andy [House] and the other amazing talents of Sony Computer Entertainment, and I think by the end of it we'll even have my friend in Kyoto telling everyone how our values - held strongly over a great period of time - had such an influence over the world of games."

    "The three musketeers are back," he said, referring to the way Sony Computer Entertainment had appointed his colleagues Andrew House and Yoshida to senior positions in recent years, while allowing him to develop the PS4 itself.

    "One of the small results of that - but huge for me - was that it provided a further boost to the engagement... the policies of engagement with game developers around the world."

    That nucleus of "amazing" personnel, he said, is what he hopes will lead people to compare Sony's impact to Nintendo's in decades to come.


    mark cerny keeps saying smart things

    Fucking loved Spyro!

    Edit: On another note, I didn't realise how many games he had been involved with! Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Crash Bandicoot! He made my childhood gaming!

    I am hoping Knack is good but I am kind of put off by the way it looks. I mean I Really want to like it because of Kerny but visually to me it is not so pleasing.

    On topic though, I can definitely see PS becoming as much of an impact as Nintendo I just think it wont be for anyone born 80's to mid 90's.
