42w ago - Game Director Mark Cerny has shared a video today unveiling Knack - a brand new platformer for PlayStation 4 / PS4.
To quote: It was a great pleasure to be able to introduce the title at the PlayStation Meeting in New York. With our new project, Knack, we are really trying to take advantage of everything that the PlayStation 4 supports, from the graphics capabilities of the platform to the physics simulation necessary to handle our very unique hero.
Over the years I've been involved in a number of character-based action titles - Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Ratchet & Clank - and with the gameplay of Knack, we're trying to focus on the essential fun behind the action/platform gameplay. I'm hoping that we can make something that excites those that played the classic games back in the day, as well as something that attracts new fans to the genre.
I'm sure you saw a lot of things in the trailer and might be wondering what exactly the game is all about.
The Doctor (a not-so-mad scientist) studied ancient relics from a long lost civilization for many years, and finally found a way to bind them together and give them consciousness. The result is Knack, a creature with mysterious powers - for one, he can incorporate more relics into his body as he finds them, which allows him...
Based on Bentley's hacking mini-games from Thieves in Time, it includes 60 totally new, controller-twisting missions to take on, tons of nifty Sly Cooper loot to collect, and cameos from the whole gang, all wrapped up in Bentley's signature arcade.
It's available now for either the PS3 or PS Vita, priced at just £1.59/€1.99. Purchasing either version of the game will allow you to download the game on the other platform at no additional cost. Take a look at the trailer here:

170w ago - PS3 Brand Manager Mark Bowles has posted up three new PlayStation Move videos today taken from the latest PS3 TV ads, as follows:
As PlayStation Move launches across Europe next week, I wanted to share some of the new TV ads we've created to support it and give a taster of what we have in store for Move.
The first 'Move into the action' ad shows you how PlayStation Move puts you smack bang into the middle of the game.
It shows off Move's amazing precision and highlights some of the new games designed to showcase the motion controller at its best, including Sports Champions and the forthcoming The Fight.
Most of you guys on the Blog will know all about Move and what it can do already, but there are a lot of people out there who aren't as up to speed on all things PlayStation. The other ad you'll be seeing on TV is the 'Move into the Party!' ad.
We have many social gamers out there who love competing with friends on a night in and Move brings loads of new ways to beat your mates while having a good laugh at the same time, with new games such as Start the Party and the soon to be released SingStar Dance.
