The lights are on
While it didn't make the cut for the longer video interview covering Mark Cerny's career, I wanted to share this clip of Mark Cerny discussing his time in Japan. As the system architect for the PlayStation 4 and creative director on Knack, Mark Cerny's career in the gaming industry has been intertwined with Japanese culture and business for decades. We start out discussing the talent from the Gravity Rush and Shadow of the Colossus teams that are working on Knack and eventually work our way to his overall thoughts on Japanese culture.
Watch the bonus clip from the video interview below to learn more.

What an amazing life/career.
Mark Cerny is just like, the coolest guy.
Man, I love listening to Cerny speak. What an interesting and thoughtful guy!
It's a shame that Sony doesn't push more games like Knack. Guess it goes to show that they know Nintendo's won the battle for family games. Nice to see Knack show up in an FPS, Sports, Shooter next-gen bonanza.
I love these interview videos. They do a spectacular job of highlighting the incredible people in the games industry I would otherwise never know about. This bonus video in particular served as a cool surprise seeing as that last interview proved Mark Cerny has a lifetime's worth of interesting things to say. Keep up the good work, Hanson!
Mark Cerny is an amazing dude. I have full confidence in the PS4 because of him.
I love these Mark Cerny interviews Hanson. He is super interesting.
