P.T. / Silent Hills will not be exclusive to Sony?

A few minutes ago came an email from Sony about the PlayStation Gamescom, the event being held these days in Cologne, as we can see from one of the games presented

It'll be multiplatform. This will be one of those games that no one should miss.

iamnsuperman774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

I am not sure why people think it is. It was quite clear the interactive teaser was exclusive (it was said at the conference hence pt being there) but nothing was said about the game. My guess it is multiplatform.

blitz0623774d ago

If this was exclusive Sony would have made sure they communicated this clearly during their conference

abzdiine774d ago

P.T. is a multi and in best cases a timed exclusive but what for sure is exclusive PS4 is the playable P.T. teaser. people enjoy taking words out of context to get clicks!

morganfell774d ago

I do not think this will be exclusive...but at the same time PT is an interactive teaser, not a demo. Add to this the fact there is no game coming called PT.

Neixus774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

@Blitz0623

Why? No one knew this was silent hills until a random livestreamer completed the game,after the conference was done

Enemy774d ago

Sony definitely would have bragged if it was going to be exclusive.

DashArrivals774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

@ Blitz0623, @ Enemy... when Bloodborne was announced at E3, they never confirmed whether that was exclusive to PS4 or not until about a week after. People were saying that it would be multiplat. Sony is publishing Silent Hills. So, don't get your hopes up. I'm sure we will get confirmation in the following days. I don't care whether it's exclusive or not, I just want this game bad.

DeadlyOreo774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

The thing that has me thinking is that Sony Japan published PT. This makes me think, why would Sony put money and resources towards a free playable teaser of a game which is going to be multiplatform. I think there is a chance that this game will be exclusive to PS4, and with the articles a while back about Hideo Kojima utilising Project Morpheus for something, I think this could be it. Added to the fact that Hideo Kojima constantly makes clear his preference to Sony.

Also, does anyone remember they kept emphasising, "Horror reborn on the Playstation 4"?

We'll find out soon enough, all I know is that I can't wait to play this.

garos82774d ago

agreed most likely multiplatform. X86 architectures will make it to easy of an opportunity to develop titles for both consoles and take advantage of the user base of both

Enemy774d ago

Unless it's going to be announced as a megaton PS4 exclusive at TGS, I don't see why Sony even bothered developing such an amazing teaser for it.

We'll find out soon enough.

morganfell774d ago

It should be noted that the lack of mention for other platforms can also mean this is one of those titles that could go from being timed exclusive to full exclusive providing Sony sees the right feedback.

GameSpawn774d ago

It's a Konami game/series, so...yeah multiplatform. Konami wants as much exposure as possible with their console games.

However, if Kojima is making it you can be assured the non-PlayStation versions will be very sub-par in some sort of way. Kojima has a heavy PlayStation bias. Just look at MGS5 (both games) for the best example.

The game has some good potential because of who is involved and hopefully it is multiplatform so that everyone can have a stab at it (no pun intended).

ziggurcat774d ago

@iamnsuperman:

the teaser may have been, but i don't think the game will/should be.

MazzingerZ774d ago

@GameSpawn
Any developer that makes a game that uses the best each platform can offer power-wise will deliver a better game on PS4, it's just the more powerful machine this gen...I thought that was pretty clear today for everybody.

BitbyDeath774d ago

Not saying it is exclusive but it is possible.
Note the name of the game is called Silent Hills, not Silent Hill, reason for the change in name might be so that Sony could publish and own the IP.

Lennoxb63774d ago

Well Kojima heavily favors PlayStation. So anything he's involved in PlayStation is going to get the first taste of it.

fr0sty774d ago

Playable Teaser is exclusive, Silent Hills, maybe not. We'll see. I'm sure if Sony sees enough hype build around this game (which, to be honest, the teaser alone spooked me more than any other game or film I've seen, mostly due to the seemingly random and unpredictable nature of not just the scares, but the gameplay itself, and I will be buying this day one when it launches), they'll go the negotiating table with Konami.

I think they should, it's one of those that has that kind of potential. If Silent Hill is rebooted in this kind of way, with those amazing graphics, gameplay, great story, and ACUTAL horror (not just "here's a bunch of zombies and deformed monsters. Blast away."), it is going to sell very well.

i will get Silent Hill as soon as i get my ps4
a good game is a good game
exclusive or not

equal_youth774d ago

exactly. but we have to wait and see. konami clearly could use the money for some other great games.

Bubbamilk774d ago

This is no game......it's a virtual interactive nightmare.....don't watch any videos or screenshots just hop in. It was easily the scariest game I have ever played. It genuinely shook me to the core of myself and I've never felt that. It's insane. The only words for it.

Even my lady said about ten minutes in that something just doesn't seem right about it. That it is so scary it kinda strikes a nerve inside like this has happened before type thing. No words. I'm 26 years old and I slept with the tv on last night!!!

redwin774d ago

Does not matter who comes out with this game, I'm getting it.

styferion774d ago

I guess it's safe to say it'll be a multiplatform title, seeing Kojima's own MGS V will also be a multiplatform title even though previous installment always exclusive to PS and if it's exclusive Sony would already announce it by now.

DoomeDx774d ago

Didnt it say ''Published by Sony'' at the end of the teaser? Doesnt that means its exclusive? They mind just be talking about the teaser though

NeoGamer232774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

I don't mean to be rude, but assessing agame's quality based on who is making it and one trailer is a little pre-mature.

Is it a game I will be watching development of? Absolutely...

Is it a game no one should miss? We don't know yet.

FanboyKilla774d ago (Edited 774d ago )

who cares? last time i heard silent hill, they were saying how horrible it was. sure it may have a small cult following, but 98.5% of gamers never cared for it. so again, who cares? next.

Mikeyy774d ago

If you did your homework you would have noticed a completely different team is making Silent Hills.

Kojima productions is doing it. So Dismissing it based on past iterations is foolish.

maybe if some unknown studio picked it up, then I can understand your lack of faith, but Hideo Kojima picked it up, and you still dismiss it?

rainslacker774d ago

The original silent hills(1-3) all sold over a million each, when that many sold was considered a success.

Most of the ones from last gen were not that great, and got very little advertising. They also didn't have Kojima backing them, or any other powerhouse names behind it. They were mostly just quick cash in on the IP games, and it showed in their mediocrity.

The series never lit up a lot on the 360. One of the titles(Homecoming I believe) sold about 400K, the rest barely even passed 100K sold. It also didn't do much better on the PS3 as I recall, but was about triple the number of units sold.

I think just the names behind this version though will push it to be very hyped, so it could lead to a surge in popularity for the series.

MuhammadJA774d ago

I hope a PC version is coming as well.

Bobby Kotex774d ago

Not everyone likes horror games.

DanteVFenris666774d ago

BECAUSE NOT EVERONES A MAN!!! EXPLOSIONS!!!!

UltraAtomic774d ago

Hopefully this rumor is true. I really want to know more about this game, and if its good. I really want it for my x1.

@MARKSMAN7136 Really!!! what a wast of a good bubble.

Flamingweazel774d ago

Like tomb raider........................ ....LOL ms are morons.

Revolver_X_774d ago

EVERYONE should experience this game. The demo is amazing.

LordMaim770d ago

I would have been extremely surprised if this had turned out to be an exclusive. Without a major paycheck, a third party platform exclusive is pretty unheard of.

i Would be shocked if this was exclusive.

Benjammin25774d ago

So would I. However, Sony published the teaser. What I think happened is, Kojima went to Konami, said I have this cool idea on how to advertise the next silent hill. They clearly weren't interested. So then Sony says "oh we'll publish the teaser instead." I'm guessing Sony agreed to do it as long as they got some kind of exclusive content. The game won't be exclusive, but don't be surprised if it comes first to the PS4.

THamm774d ago

I'm pretty sure he said why should we front the money to put this out when Sony or MS will do anything to get an edge. Hence Sony bit, now I'm getting Silent Hill on Ps4 since surprisingly Pt was awesome actually.

GW212774d ago

Eh, I'm not sure that Konami told him they weren't interested. I feel like Kojima has enough pull with Konami at this stage that he can dictate to them what they're interested in.

But maybe not, I don't know. Just the sense I get.

DashArrivals774d ago

I remember when people were saying Bloodborne WOULD NOT be exclusive to PS4... my point is, wait until we have proper confirmation. Which we'll surely get in the coming days or weeks

OpenGL774d ago

If Konami had put the teaser on the Playstation Store people might have figured out that it is a new Silent Hill without completing it.

garos82774d ago

i would be shocked too but no matter i have a PS4 and i will be buying this.

Hope others get to "enjoy" (for a lack of better word of having fun in a horror game) what looks to be the scariest experience ever

redblack774d ago

the email I received at 14: 21, I wanted to share it with you

Mr-Dude774d ago

It is or it isn;t. I really don't care... I just want to play it on my PS4. Really enjoyed the demo. Just hope the reboot is really good. Last Silent Hilll was really bad imo

Arkardo774d ago

Not likely being honest, still a game nobody should miss, clever marketing anyone?

I was f***** high with the teaser.
