I wanted to take a brief moment and draw your attention to one of the industry’s most prolific pioneers who has had a tremendous impact on the past, present and future of PlayStation.
You’re all familiar with the names and accomplishments of such Sony Computer Entertainment visionaries as Ken Kutaragi and Shuhei Yoshida. Today, Academy of Interactive Arts and Science announced it will be honoring another influential game designer, producer, and programmer with a tremendous influence on PlayStation. Mark Cerny of Cerny Games is going to be the inducted as the 13th member of the AIAS Hall of Fame in Las Vegas next month.
Just take a look at some of the titles and franchises you have all played that Mark was instrumental in supporting over the years… from Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, and Spyro the Dragon to Resistance, Ratchet & Clank, and Uncharted. Mark’s profound contributions to the industry and to SCE have helped shape the games and entertainment experiences that we’ve all spent countless hours with, so congratulations to Mark for this well deserved honor.
