Andrew House and Mark Cerny will both appear in conversation in a keynote for Develop 2014 at Brighton, where they will discuss 20 years of PlayStation, and 40 years of console gaming. Their keynote will look at the history of video games as it is so far, while also simultaneously looking ahead at the future.

“It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since the arrival of the first PlayStation,” commented President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., Andrew House. “Mark Cerny and I will look back over this fantastic period in which console gaming became mainstream, how our experiences shaped PlayStation 4 and where the industry will go from here.”

“We learnt a lot of lessons over the past 20 years which shaped the decisions taken in designing PlayStation 4,” said Mark Cerny, Lead System Architect on PlayStation 4 and President of Cerny Games. “The Develop in Brighton conference is a wonderful opportunity for us to share some of these experiences with the industry and discuss what the future might hold.”

“Following the rave reviews and accolades PlayStation 4 has received we are honoured to have Andrew House and Mark Cerny deliver the Develop in Brighton this July,” said Andy Lane, managing director of Tandem Events, who are organizing Develop 2014.

Mark Cerny is also being honored with a prestigious award at Develop, so it’s basically a Cerny fest this year, for anyone who loves the man and his works.
