    KNACK -- PS4's New Mascot



    The Director of this game was also the lead architect of the PS4.

    Here is his resume:

    Disruptor (1996, PlayStation) Executive Producer, Designer
    Crash Bandicoot (1996, PlayStation) Executive Producer
    Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back (1997, PlayStation) Producer, Designer

    Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped (1998, PlayStation) Executive Producer, Designer

    God of War III (2010, PS3) Design Consultant
    Killzone 3 (2011, PS3) Design Consultant
    Knack (PS4) - Director, Designer

    His fingerprints are all over some of Sonys best games ever.

    KNACK reminds me of the 90's mascot days. Gameplay has been described as a mixed of Crash Bandicoot and God of War.

    The graphics look like they're from a Pixar movie, and KNACK will be a PS4 Launch title. Could this be Sonys next mascot?






    Knack looks like it will showcase next-gen physics and particle effects quite well. I'm definitely excited for it. I think it was the most underrated game at Sonys press conference. And before anyone mentions platforming game sales...... Let me remind you that LittleBigPlanet sold over 5+million copies on PS3.


    Other Notes: Knack is developed by SCEJ JAPANstudio

    If you pay attention to some of the demos playing in the background during the PS4 unveiling, you'll see that Knack will get as big as a house! 8o
    Who would have thought building a solid product that serves your customer's needs would beat out money, marketing, hype, and greed.

    Because it's not realistic? The game still looks good. And what PS3 game has the kind of unique gameplay mechanic we saw in the trailer?








    I'm sorry but the whole bargain bin stuff is a load of crap. People talk about wanting to play new IPs and when we do get one, it gets overshadowed by a popular franchise like Killzone or Call of Duty.

    The best looking launch game imo.

    Day 1 and I hope Knack becomes a really awesome mascot, if not, he still adds to the already massive list of awesome Sony characters

    I'm way more excited about Infamous and Killzone honestly. But Knack looks okay so far.

    Knack is probably my second most anticipate ps4 exclusive so far. Only thing I'm looking forward to more is Infamous. Looking truly unique.

    I was a bit skeptical about the game at first but it grew on me a lot. I'm looking forward to it very much.

    If it has that same feel as the classic mascot-ish games, I'll be very happy. :] Those types of games tend to bring back the nostalgia of childhood for me.

    That is because the trailer was horrible and didnt show what they needed to to grab players.


    RIP Oculus Rift

    Just like the PS3 launch I will probably only be able to afford one game with my PS4 and if this is a launch title it is going to be the game I chose without a doubt!
    Trophy-licious!
