Settle Down for PlayStation Story Time with Mark Cerny

Posted by Sammy Barker

Are you sitting comfortably?

Once upon a time, PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny was actually a children’s narrator for the BBC. Now he occupies his time with projects such as Knack – but the luminary has reprised his former role to recount his history with the PlayStation brand. We can already feel the wonderful world of nod beckoning.

Seriously, though, this incredible piece of work by YouTube user ‘markstockdalehughes’ combines the Marble Madness creator’s recent GameLab keynote with some amazing Quentin Blake-esque illustrations. If you don’t smile at this, then you’re officially dead inside. We recommend going to see a doctor or something.

Nice picture for the story. Also I like the xbox one going off the cliff. Perfect place for it.

He seems to be quite an amazing guy. I wish I knew more about him a long time ago. Every time I hear about this guy, not only do I learn of more of his amazing feats, but I learn some really interesting things about the video game industry in general. He has an awesome way of "telling it how it is", as well as being honest and straightforward.

@Grockumus I'm the complete opposite. The guy is creepy. He looks, sounds and acts like a discarded Noel Fielding character (or Kevin Eldon playing Brian Cox). He's just so off and odd. You see any photo of him and it looks like the ones you see of a nutjob on the news followed by the newsreader saying, "before turning the gun on himself."

@rastamadeus Not to sound like a complete bleed heart, but judging by JUST appearance alone is a horrible way to evaluate a person's true character. Besides, he's accomplished quite a lot in his life (more than most of us can brag of, I'm sure), and that is what I find admirable.

@get2sammyb Not doubting his intelligence but just saying that there is something off about him which I can't get over and take him seriously. Exactly the same as that Microsoft guy who recently left for Zynga. I personally find them both creepy.

My favorite part was the two signposts at the end. Just hoping Sony doesn't start wandering across to the other path.

That was pretty good. I liked the two sign posts with the One going off the cliff. Cerny doesn't actually sound that bad as a story reader. I get the feeling that a lot of us would listen if he did read a children's story book lol.
