PS4 Launch Title Knack Gets New Screenshots and Trailer Showcasing one of the Stages and Co-Op

by on November 7, 2013 9:17 AM 68

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia released three new screenshots of the PS4 launch title Knack, featuring another of the stages included in Mark Cerny’s brainchild.

As usual with the screenshots coming from Sony Japan, they’re unfortunately quite small, and the level also looks a little dull compared to what we’ve seen before, but that’s all we got for today. You can check them out just below.

Update: Sony Computer Entertainment also just released a new trailer showcasing co-op multiplayer, you can enjoy that below as well. It definitely looks a lot more impressive.

    This game feels like a cheesy attempt to show the number of objects the console can manipulate at any given time. The look of it reminds me of a Rare game on the 360 or something. Just that glossy, but not great, rendered look. I’ll give it a shot when it comes out, but not expecting much.

    • Regis

      The game reminded me of crash bandicoot from the early ps1 naughty dog days.

  • PcRules

    The PS4 and Xbone are just as underpowered as the WiiU and still the Sonybots just keep their dicks in the air and belive everything Sony sells them. Every game I seem so far for the nextgen console are just pathetic.

    This is crap so save your money and go for a real gaming system thats spell Pc couse this is just worthless POS and if you cant get it it’s your loss DUMBFUCKS console nerds!

    • MyBodyIsReady
    • Woohoo!!

      speaking as a PC nerd, please STFU. You are an embarrassment to the entire species

    • Woohoo!!

      You’re just jealous because your PC sucks a**. If you had my tech, you would throw yours in the garbage.
      BTW, those petty, elementary school insults really make you sound so intelligent. LMAO at you

      • PcRules

        Truth hurts huh…stupid MOTHERF*CKER!

        • Woohoo!!

          Think what you like, but nothing that you say hurts anyone but you

    • KuchikiSentou

      GTA V made $1billion in 3 days not one cent on PC. I wonder which PC game has even come close.

      • Woohoo!!

        World of Warcraft

        • KuchikiSentou

          No it doesn’t

          • Woohoo!!

            Wonder why GTA V didn’t sell well on the PC? (that was sarcasm)
            But you’re right, it doesn’t come close, World of Warcraft has made much more money, if that is the only way you can measure the value of a game.

            But you don’t have to take my word for it:

          • KuchikiSentou

            Mate. How long did it take for WoW to make that money? 10 years?
            GTA V made 10% of that in 3 days. And holds 7 World Records to show for it.

          • Woohoo!!

            I never said that GTA V wasn’t successful, But most of the people who are going to buy it, already have. WoW is still making money and will continue to make money long after GTA V hits the bargain bin. Besides, you only asked about a game that has made that kind of money on the PC (as if that is the only thing worth talking about with games). You have your example.

          • KuchikiSentou

            No, that was not my question. I asked what game on PC has made that money in THAT time.

          • Woohoo!!

            Fine whatever, change up the parameters to suit you narrow perspective. Still, GTA V has already made most of the money that it EVER will on both the PS3 & the 360, and it is still $9 billion short of what WoW has already made on the PC alone.

          • KuchikiSentou

            Mate that was in 9 years. World of War Craft is 2004. How long did it take for WoW to make its first billion?

          • Woohoo!!

            Who cares? Fact is, it did make it and it is STILL making it. But we’ve already been here before. Not going to go back over this with you.

          • KuchikiSentou

            Then don’t jump in. The GTA facts cannot be refuted. 7 world records cannot be refuted.

            $2000 GTX780TiSLiPhysX Mantle can all bite it in the face of consoles.

          • Woohoo!!

            yeah, it won some world records but the biggest one still belongs to WoW. You cannot refute that. and what really chaps your a** is that it’s a PC game.

            That is the difference between people like you and PcRules (you have more in common that you probably know) and myself. You guys are fanboys, I am a gamer. In front of me right now is an awesome gaming PC, a PS3, a PSVita, a 2DS (xmas present for my granddaughter) a Wii, and next week I will add the PS4 to my entertainment center. I have lots of options, I game on whatever platform they may come to (except the Xbox, I will never own one, valid personal reason I refuse to go into). I’m not even disputing that GTA V is a very successful game, not my thing mind you, but I know that is just me and I give props where they are due. But you can’t do the same, can you?

            anyway, I proved my point, I don’t care if you don’t want to acknowledge it

          • KuchikiSentou

            Lol, What’s my business how many consoles you have or who it’s for? I responded to someone who is denigrating console gaming by giving an example that shows that console gaming is just as vibrant, even more vibrant than PC gaming. You are throwing out needless information and relying on baseless assumptions in doing so. You don’t know whether or not I’m using a PC with a Titan to make these comments; you don’t know whether I’m distraught by the cost of high-end PC gaming which most of the Elite claim (which only a percentage of them can actually afford). Telling me you have an awesome gaming PC and a VITA does not change the fact that the console space is just as vibrant as ever, and that denigrating it like your friend pcrules is a foolish endeavour.

            I bought a GTX780 for my youngest wife, big bloody deal. Who cares?

          • Woohoo!!

            Strawman much? I never implied any of that. And what assumptions are you referring to exactly? You should really try to be specific with your petty accusations.

            and you wasted your money, the GTX760 is just as good and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper

          • KuchikiSentou

            Who’s to know that? Each nVidia card is always “the most powerful on the market”.

          • Woohoo!!

            but I know trolling when I see it. We’re done here.

          • KuchikiSentou

            You butted in with your gallivanting and you call me a troll?
            Grow up but a little, sir.

          • Woohoo!!

            You have a fit because I made lie of your assumptions and I need to grow up? fine, don’t care what you think

          • KuchikiSentou

            Mate, $1billion in 3 days is not a lie.
            $10 billion in 9 years is $3million per day. Which equates $9million in 3 days.

            Simple arithmetic.

          • Woohoo!!

            come back with the final number next month. it’s a marathon, not a race. I bet that Rock Star would sell their children for a bit of that WoW money. Sorry if that pisses in your post toasties

          • KuchikiSentou

            A troll if ever I’ve seen one. No one gets to decide whether it’s a SPRINT or a marathon.
            The fact remains that no PC game has generated that money in that time.

          • Woohoo!!

            No one gets to decide whether it’s a SPRINT or a marathon.

            Is that not what you’re doing, telling me that I have to count how much money is made in 3 days, opposed to over the long run?

            How is it different and what make me the troll if you are doing the same?

          • KuchikiSentou

            I have just given you the fact that no PC game can recreate. the PC market is not vibrant enough to receive a property so well as to match the success of GTA V.

            I don’t know how many permutations in which the same point can be made.

          • Woohoo!!

            But fine, here is a litmus test for you, if GTA V makes another $1B, even in the next 6 months, I will concede your point

          • KuchikiSentou

            I’m not asking for you to concede or to agree. I’ve simply stated a fact that neither you, PC gaming nor Steam can refute. You can’t “agree” to a fact as blatant as gravity, or 7 World Records. You don’t have to. Why should I wait 6 months to prove a point I already made?

          • Woohoo!!

            That is what I thought…coward

          • KuchikiSentou

            Now, it’s name calling. You are relying on a 9 year old game that is losing subscribers by the day, comparing it to a title, a platform that is seeing unprecedented success.

            7 World Records one property, $1billion, 3 days, NOT a PC game.

          • Woohoo!!

            not name calling….shaming. You’re so confident, then take my challenge…lets just see how GTA V is doing 6 months from now then average that by the time that WoW has been running…it wont go well for you, I promise.

          • KuchikiSentou

            I look at the preorder charts for the highest selling games. I search for PC titles; I find none. Publishers make the least money in the PC versions of their games. I wonder why they bother.

          • KuchikiSentou

            That is a lie. The gap set is $300m/day to 3$m/day. GTA V sells every week. WoW loses subscribers every day.
            The $1billion made in 3 days is obvioulsy going to increase more than the $10billion in 9 years.

            Even if we make it $1billion in 6 months (ie GTAV sells nothing since 17th September) it still brings it to an average of $5million/day which is more than WoW’s $3million/day.

            So ya. The arithmetic doesn’t favour you. It’s even worse for you if you take WoW success relatively, because it did nothing for its first few months of release. You’re just hiding behind extrapolated imaginary situations.

            I’m giving you hard FACTS that are available for the whole world to see. Not hypotheticals.

          • Woohoo!!

            creative math FTW, right?

          • KuchikiSentou

            That’s why most of us get an education. To apply it and to subdue others with it.

            All I did was state a humble fact.

          • Woohoo!!

            but that is fine, it is too late for you to back out. I’ve already marked it on my calendar, then we will average that $1b to the the time (then 6 months) to make it. I know you wont be here

          • KuchikiSentou

            Lol, the worst cop-out I’ve ever encountered on Disqus. Devoid of all logic.
            I might as well say I will be here in 6 months to decide on this issue. But the reality seen by logic is that this discussion can only be decided now. On facts that we have NOW.

            And the fact is that no PC property has grossed $1billion in the time GTA has. Even Call of Duty took 10 days. It took World of Warcraft at least 2 years.

          • Woohoo!!

            Yeah by that same logic, lets say that GTA V makes another billion. It wont but lets just say that it will for the sake of argument. Divide that by 9 years and you are only looking at $608,828 per day and that is all the money that the game will EVER make. Period. In fact, it is probably more than it will make, but I’m going to be generous ’cause in the end it wont make any difference. WoW subs are subsiding true, but they have not stopped, who knows how long it will take for them to stop altogether. But lets cap that money right now.

            I’m patient but since you seem to need instant results, here they are:

            Lets say that WoW has earned it’s last dollar too. As you said “$10 billion in 9 years is $3million per day. Which equates $9million in 3 days.”

            $3M per day compared to $608+K per day….

            Simple arithmetic indeed

          • KuchikiSentou

            All that is speculation conjecture, suppositions and guesswork

            The FACT remains that no PC game has grossed $1billion in the time a console game has. This FACT is well documented and is not polluted by cheap speculation.

            Alhamdulillah.

          • Woohoo!!

            no conjecture, and if there was, it was in your favor. I don’t care anymore, I made my point and I see yours, I just don’t agree

          • KuchikiSentou

            Congratulations.

            It’s like saying you don’t agree with gravity because spaceships defy it to go into outer space.

            Your “agreement” to the FACTis neither here nor there, bob.

          • Woohoo!!

            The facts were in my favor, so that was my line, betty

          • KuchikiSentou

            Those aren’t FACTS; those are hypothetical. ‘”Let’s say”… this’ is no indication of “fact”.

            The FACT is that the fastest grossing entertainment property in the history of the universe, GTA V, was achieved ONLY on consoles.

          • Woohoo!!

            and PcRules is not my friend, if you will scroll down, you will see me giving him the business just like I did you.

          • KuchikiSentou

            So who’s the troll? Going around giving people “the business” and talking about grandchildren for Xmas?

          • Woohoo!!

            TMI? I suppose I shouldn’t expect any civility from a fanboy. What I meant was that was that not everything here is mine. I shouldn’t have said that, just gave you another tangent to fly off on.
            My point was that I am a multi-platform gamer, I know the value of all of them and give them equal time on a regular basis

          • KuchikiSentou

            And of what relevance is that to me? You’re the one calling me a troll, a coward, and now a fanboy, as old as you are. Does my response to pcrules somehow say that PC is not a valuable platform? Does it remove the fact that games like Shogun 2 are still mostly only possible on PCs?

            My initial point was that denigrating console games is a fool’s errand because, in most cases, it’s a more vibrant platform where there are games which meet unprecedented success each year. PC has relatively fewer success stories of such magnitude, Consoles bring out new, hugely successful titles each year and the PC counterparts of those titles, although concededly better looking, ultimately don’t succeed on that platform.

            EASports, for example, has declared that their all new next gen Ignite engine won’t be making it to PC until 2018. Microsoft only recently made a commitment to attempt to bring its first party games to PC. People had to beg for Ubisoft to bring The Division to PC. GTA 5 didn’t launch on PC. The list goes on…

          • Woohoo!!

            I don’t care what is relevant to you.

            Does my response to pcrules somehow say that PC is not a valuable platform?

            Nope, you asked a question, I answered it, you changed the parameters to invalidate my reply. I responded to those changes by proving to you how my example is still valid despite those changes.

            I never once implied that the consoles were not a “vibrant platform”

            Why else would I have invested so heavily in them?

            “You’re the one calling me a troll a coward, and now a fanboy, as old as you are.”

            I don’t think you are a troll, I think you are trolling me now because you didn’t get your way in the argument, there is a difference. You are a coward because you will only participate in this discussion on your own terms, when those same terms are turned against you, you cry foul. You cannot have it both ways. You are a fanboy because you only see value in the console, very narrow minded. The very definition of fanboyism.
            Lastly, how old do you think I am? and is this only relevant when you bring it up?

          • KuchikiSentou

            Get my way? There is no “way” to be gotten here compadre. I don’t even think this is an argument.

            All I did was respond to pcrules and you gallivanted and meandered your way into my conversation. I stated a fact to illustrate the viability of the console space, I said nothing to put it down. I gave examples of the stance of publishers and their attitudes towards PC gaming and the reflection of those attitudes on PC as a platform in comparison to consoles.

            You’re the one calling me a fanboy and calling me narrow minded.

            I have said nothing to denigrate you as a person or your mentality.

          • Woohoo!!

            I agree with you about PcRules, but that is not how this conversation started. You are just as guilty of this as I am, don’t go pretending to be the victim. I’m not going to argue with you anymore though. Lets just drop it

          • KuchikiSentou

            “Let’s?” Mate, you’re the one who has been insulting me. I have done nothing to warrant any guilt.
            I had no argument with you, mate; you picked one with me.

            Despite all this, I deign to accept your capitulation. Go with Christ.

          • Woohoo!!

            F*ck your christ, and I did not capitulate to anything.

          • KuchikiSentou

            Now you are using hateful, abusive words against me? Fisabilillah…

            Well, I forgive you.

          • Woohoo!!

            LMAO at you, you think this is hateful? Keep your weak a**ed religion out of it, we were talking about games. This is just more trolling

          • KuchikiSentou

            Go with Christ is as common a colloquialism as “oh my God”. It’s an aphorism.
            You’re the one casting needless aspersions and insulting people and their religions. You capitulated and now all you are doing is insulting people.

          • Woohoo!!

            Of course I’m insulting your religion, it has no place here. You couldn’t defeat me with your logic so now you muddy the waters with bullsh*t. anyway, goodbye god boy

          • KuchikiSentou

            Mate, it’s not my religion. It’s just an aphorism. I gave you an explanation earlier.

            You’re the one who capitulated so nitpicking a colloquialism is a terrible cop out. You conceded a while ago and that’s okay.

            Moral of the story: Pick your future engagements better.

          • Woohoo!!

            Yeah, next time I’ll try to limit my discussions to people with a firmer grip on reality.

          • KuchikiSentou

            And capitulate earlier as well, instead of denying blatant facts and prolonging proceedings.

          • Woohoo!!

            I’ll let you have the last word after this, it seems really important to you, XD

          • KuchikiSentou

            You’re the one who said to drop it hours ago. It seems to me you speak about yourself and not me.

    • Averix

      Why does this argument never die? PCs can be powerhouses! Yeah! Consoles bring a consistent platform to a large audience at a much smaller price tag than a tricked out gaming PC. They’re also streamlined for GAMING (which may or may not be true of the XBOX One, time will tell) so they can be razor tuned to a game. So, for $400 I’m getting a dedicated console with visual performance equal to the mid-upper PC world right now that would likely cost me at least $600-800 to build. And, since that will just age rapidly, I’ll likely have to re-invest that amount in another 3 years. I think I’ll spend my $400 and let the devs keep fine tuning the games over the next 6 years of the console’s lifespan.
      If you want to play games on a high end expensive PC, more power to you. Just stop being such a douche about it.

  • KuchikiSentou

    Oh ya. Knack looks really fun with 2 players. Glad there are still people who care about 2 player gameplay.
