nice interview, thanks for posting.
Everything seems to be working as programmed for Sony, which is great. Every single move they did so far has been positive and leaned towards gaming. I'm really excited about PS4 and the interaction with ps vita, which by the way is a fantastic device.
This guy is something special indeed
I hope they use Mark Cerny for the future of playstation meaning the PS5 and so on.
It's pretty obvious why Sony went through AMD for the PS4 and part of it is because it's cheaper. The other reason is the tech in the APU's are probably something that fit the needs for the PS4 and definitely something that make development easier I would think.
Cerny has already gone on record saying he wants to go back to the software side of the equation. Doubt we'll see him help with future playstations
I have such great respect for this guy.
If there's a super-power that lets you usher Zen when you speak, this man's got it :snicker
Sony should never consider releasing this guy any time soon... Keep him until he decides to go
But i do not see that, with him being the front man for this entire PS4 P.R, he will never leave :)
The future is bright for the PS brand and the PS4 with Cerny at the helm. Legend in the making.
PS4: MARK CERNY EXPERIENCE ... The man is one of a kind
Cerny is what they call a "storyteller". He starts talking and everyone sits in a bliss quietly to listen.
No matter how awesome he is and how great a job he did no doubt he isn't comfortable with the PR side of things. Not saying he doesn't do a good job...but imagine doing interviews and this stuff does not satisfy him. Someone that loves making games etc doesn't want to be a PR person....they want to innovate and design...he will likely go back to making games and good for him. As long as Sony keeps the approach they are taking now...reaching out...gathering info....utilizing experts....they should be fine in the future without him.
One of the things that stand out to me, is a lot of people was worried about remote play if games used L2 & R2 buttons, but now that's not a worry because the top left and right of rear touch pad can be used.
Really hooe Sony do not burn this guy out. Because he is awesome
I really like Mark Cerny, very intelligent guy (=
I hope he becomes part of Sony ^^
I wish people would ask him new questions ... it is always the same ones and he is always saying the same things. Been hearing these lines from him for the past 6 months. Getting old.
What I would ask Cerny
1.) What was the process to choose which baseline GPU you used? Did you guys choose the 7870 and then modify it? Did AMD give you a baseline 7000 series GPU and you modified them from there? Or did they give you guys just the blueprint and you built the GPU from scratch based off the 7000 series.
2.) Has Microsoft or Nintendo ever come to you and wanted your Consultation on games/hardware/ since your not technically with Sony and just a Consultant?
3.) If you had the option to do only 1 thing would it be designing hardware, designing games, or designing engines/middleware for the first party's?
4.) How much better looking could games on the PS3 have been with 2GB of VRAM?
5.) The PS3 had 2TFLOP of computational capability. What is the real advancement that these new systems will bring this generation graphically?
6.) How about a next-gen marble madness on the PS4?
7.) Can you please help them finish The Last Guardian?
I wonder what he will do next and how he will make the SONY BRAND more awesome
