Rumours and theories are starting to swirl around gamers excited for the Kojima/Del Toro mash-up Silent Hills. And not all of it is complete rubbish.
Not only would I really enjoy the game, but I would seriously scream like a girl LOL
I don't think you have to worry about that because it's probably not coming to Project Morpheus and it's probably not even an exclusive. Also, SCEWWS are already working on their own exclusive scary/suspense games. "The Deep" and "The Assembly" are two key games they are working on. edit: "The Assembly" isn't first party, but they have been working on Project Morpheus since 2013. http://blog.us.playstation....
i hope it's not a morpheus exclusive. PS4 exclusive ok but not only morpheus restricted. i dont think they want to sell this game to a very few amount of people.
I would love for it to be exclusive but I don't really think it will be.
It better at least support the occulus rift. Morpheuses big brother.
lol. That facebook thought police device one straps around ones own face? ..Yeah, that can go straight to hell. Project Morpheus is the only VR I will ever care about, and if that fails I wont care about VR ever.
thought police? So how are they going to read your thoughts? Through your eyes? You act like facebook pumping 2 billion dollars into oculus vr is a bad thing. It means gauranteed success now that it has funding. They are the cutting edge... morpheus is just so far behind. You go ahead and dont care about vr ever... just like those people who claimed they wont ever use a touch screen ever because apple made used it with iphone.
I think this is open to interpretation "Dad was such a drag. Every day he'd eat the same kind of food, dress the same, sit in front of the same kind of games... Yeah, he was just that kind of guy. But then one day, he goes and kills us all! He couldn't even be original about the way he did it. I'm not complaining... I was dying of boredom anyway, But guess what? I will be coming back, and I'm bringing my new toys with me." It could mean interesting gameplay mechanics or mean nothing at all. It would be interesting to see this as a morpheus game but lets not get too excited just yet
Konami was such a drag. Every time they'd release the same kind of awesome Silent Hill game, with the same kind of great gameplay, in the same creepy foggy town... Yeah, it was just that kind of developer. But then one day, Konami goes and kills Silent Hill! Konami couldn't even be original about the way they did it. I was complaining... Because the later games weren't good anymore, But guess what? SH will be coming back with Konami and it's bringing new monsters, horror and gameplay toys with it.
never thought of it that way
Although having a game like Silent Hills/P.T. in virtual reality is a fiendishly good idea, I don't think it will be a Morpheus exclusive. Exclusive to the PlayStation brand? Yes. Exclusive to Morpheus? No.
I'm pretty sure this isn't an exclusive game. I believe the playable teaser was but I imagine the game will be available on xb1 and ps4 and there's a good chance it will probably go to pc.I believe they just simply chose Sony for the reveal. Didn't Kojima already say that there are lots of people out there who want to play silent hills but don't have Playstations.
I think if it was exclusive Sony would have been telling everybody the only way to explain why they did not call it exclusive is it is undecided but I doubt that is the case.
who would be brave enough to play through this game in VR?
I'm thinking the same. I gave up on Outlast after about 20 minutes. I don't think I could handle it for 5 mins if it was VR.
Can't wait to try Outlast (not gotta PS4 yet) i'm hardcore, I don't scare easily at all, it's kind of a curse really, I miss that feeling of terror
Me... I admit to screaming while playing P.T., but isn't getting scared the purpose of playing a horror game?
I'll enjoy the hell out of the game but I haven't actually been scared from a game or even horror movies since I was a very young child. Not much that scares me at all these days anymore, it may startle me or surprise me but that is about it. Also kind of hard for me to be scared by something I am expecting to be scared by. Do any of you honestly really get scared? I guess some people are still afraid of the dark but I never understood that either.
Have you played any such titles via VR, though? That is the point everyone is making. It is all-enveloping and in your face. I think even if you knew something is coming, the focus of detail and the overal visceral surroundings that VR offers is enough to drive people into fear.
So u played pt right? I grew up watching scary movies and playing scary games. They have always been my favorite. I too thought nothing could really scare me. I got pt right when I found out before the hype and didn't read or see anything about it. It honestly scared me. My stomach was so uneasy half way thru that I got physically ill. No bs it took me 2 days and eventually a walk through just to beat a freaking demo. So yes as a grown man I didn't sleep well that night. Or even the following nights. U did bring up a good point tho. I had no expectations. If I would have seen or read anything about it I might not have been as scared. Outlast was nothing to be scared of. Nothing last gen was for that matter. But pt is a freaking nightmare
This is why games will one day take over movie's as the number 1 form of entertainment. I can't remember the last time I was scared at a movie, but I've been getting scared in games since RE2. The fact this game has been mentioned with VR has me salivating. Hope to get some more info on this soon...
The game maybe virtual reality, but the pee running down my leg is very real!! :OP
I'd watch the YouTube clips of people being recorded as they played it, for laughs, but I'm not playing that thing in VR!!
Nope Nope NOPE! Shat myself enough playing ti on a 55", this will def make me die of a heart attack.
I agree. I was watching the game with 4 friends, one of whom had the controller, on my projector screen and we all screamed/swore and jumped back into the couches. I'd like to say we were startled but that would be putting it mildly. We were scared silly. My wife, in another room, heard us all scream and laughed her head off when she came and saw us. We didn't even try to continue and finish it. Then when we put The Last of Us in, we all still felt extra jumpy thanks to P.T.. Therefore, I would not even think about trying to play this with a VR headset. In fact Sony will definitely have to include warnings for people with heart conditions, pregnant etc. The increased level of immersion will be too intense for all but the bravest and best in health.
Not likely , and it better come with some adult diapers.
$h#t your pants limited edition coming your way...
It better be a BIG pair of pants LoL
What a really dumb theory. Why cast Norman Reedus and model him if everything will be first person? Its not what Silent Hill is.
Dude of course they mean for the T.P aka playable Teaser. Nobody said ANYTHING about Silent Hills being first person ONLY.... YET.
Theyre talking about the actual game, not the teaser. If it wasnt all first person, then how would VR even work? How can it be exclusive to VR if it wasnt all first person? I dont want this to happen. Silent Hill is a traditional game that should have traditional controls. VR should be left for new horror IPs.
I agree with you. I don't think Silent Hills will be in 1st person, because they cast Norman for the lead role. It would be kind of pointless for him to be there if we can't see him etc and SH has always been 3rd person anyway. But still, it would be insane to play a horror game like this in VR ;D. Ever since I played RE2 years ago, I've been thinking how cool it would be to play horror games like being there yourself. @WitWolfy the article is talking about Silent Hills.
It could work. There is such a thing as reflective surfaces, flash back scenes, cinematic's ect. VR + Silent Hill = Sheer Terror ( LoL in a good way )
Yes, because we've NEVER seen a game get rebooted from a 3rd person or side scroller view to a first person view. Nope. Never seen that happen before... Also, I'm sure the game will have tons of cutscenes in which Norman Reedus will be showing off his face. People don't need to see it every second of the game.
