    Watch Mark Cerny Talk Japanese and Quite a bit of Knacks Gameplay Footage

    Mark Cerny mentions quite often that one of the reasons why he managed to score his position as the PlayStation 4′s Lead Architect is his ability to speak Japanese fluently, but have you ever seen him actually talk in the idiom of the raising sun?Today we finally hear him speak the language of the Samurai as he introduces Knack to the Japanese audience in a new video. Of course his linguistic proficiency isnt the only selling point of the video, as it showcases quite a lot of gameplay of the PS4′s launch title Cerny is working on, Knack.You can enjoy the video below and see for yourself if Cerny-sans usual charm works in Japanese as well.

    He's such a brain and came literally out of nowhere (never heard of him prior to the PS4 announcement)!

    Everytime I see that guy or better yet, hear him talk, I can't help but be reminded of Max Headroom. LOL

    He did this during E3 with an interview on Spike TV which was really cool.

    It's in Japanese, and has Japanese subtitles. Mind blown.

    Much respect for him though.

    Cerny is the real deal. With his vision the PS4 will do great.

    probably because his pronounciation isn't perfect

    Mark Cerny was that guy hidden in the shadows. Just now (during the PS4 reveal) did he come out of his shell to tell us who he is. I didn't even know who he was before the PS4 either. But I'm glade we know now and it's no wonder why the PS4 is looking to be such a great gaming console since he was the brains behind the system.

    For him speaking japanese and considering his history and mainly working with japanese studios, this doesn't surprise me.
