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.

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.
MRMagoo123  +   533d ago
I would love for it to be exclusive but I don't really think it will be.
Kurylo3d  +   533d ago
It better at least support the occulus rift. Morpheuses big brother.
jujubee88  +   531d ago
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.
Kurylo3d  +   531d ago
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
Gatsu  +   533d ago
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.

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.
shloobmm3  +   533d ago
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.

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

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.
Bubbamilk  +   533d ago
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
b163o1  +   533d ago
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...

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.

What a really dumb theory. Why cast Norman Reedus and model him if everything will be first person? Its not what Silent Hill is.
WitWolfy  +   533d ago
Dude of course they mean for the T.P aka playable Teaser.

Nobody said ANYTHING about Silent Hills being first person ONLY.... YET.

CernaML  +   533d ago
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.
Gatsu  +   533d ago
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 )
CorndogBurglar  +   533d ago
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.
CernaML  +   533d ago
Care to provide examples of these reboots that arent results of next generation graphics and hardware (ie SNES -> N64)? In fact, are there any good examples of a series coming from first person to third person that actually worked? And just to be clear, I lost interest in most Nintendo games once they went 3D. But thats just me.

Using the cinematic or reflective surfaces excuse is about as silly as you can get. It doesnt change the fact that its not what Silent Hill is. Its not about immersion. Its about atmosphere and character development. But who am I to talk? Im just a huge Silent Hill fan who has actually played all of them.

@ Cerna

Why are you putting a stipulation on it? You're saying these other games were not due to a shift from next gen graphics, but thats exactly what this would be, unless you cqn point me to a Silent Hill game that has been released on PS4/Xbox One?

Furthermore, games like Metroid and Fallout were not changed because of new tech. They could have easily kept those games in the same genre but with updated graphics, but they chose not to. You know what they changed them to? First Person Shooters.

So don't try to tell me that Silent Hill won't be changed to first person shooter because it will change what Silent Hill is. Its been done before.

I'm not saying it will definitely change to FPS, but no one can honestly say that it won't either. Not until we get some kind of confirmation anyway.
CernaML  +   527d ago
You just proved my point. The only games that actually changed genres are those that went from 2D to 3D. The tech ALLOWED them to do that. You cant honestly sit here and tell me those franchises could have started out as first person shooters originally on the tech they were on.

Silent hill started on the PS1 as a third person horror game.
Then it moved to the PS2/Xbox as a third person horror game.
Then it moved to the PS3/Xbox 360 as a third person horror game. It's been a third person game since the beginning and stayed third person on hardware that could easily allow first person.

If you cant give me any legitimate examples of games that drastically changed mechanics between 3D hardware and worked then my point still stands.

Oh wait, you know what? You're right, it has happened before. Silent Hill Book of Memories. A top down co-op shooter for the Vita. And guess what? It was ASS. It pains me to see it have the Silent Hill name.

In my opinion, first person WONT work. Ive played every single Silent Hill game to date and it's perfect the way it is already. Keep in mind the demo had that disclaimer: "NOT representative of the final game" and first person will completely defeat the purpose of casting and modeling Norman Reedus.
CorndogBurglar  +   527d ago
I didn't make your point at all. Not once did I say those games could have started out as first person shooters. I said that they could have easily kept those games in the same genres as their originals, but they chose not to.

Also, lets not forget when Zelda was changed from an over the top action RPG to a side scroller for Zelda 2. My point is, genres have been changed quite a bit in the past.

Also, i understand that you feel like Silent Hills will stop being Silent Hill if ots done from a FPS perspective. But again, a lot of people could say the same about Metroid, which was a side scroller, or Fallout, which was an over the top strategy game. You don't think changing perspectives on those games made them stop being what they were? Those were drastic changes. Just as drastic as changing Silent Hill to FPS. And again, the tech has nothing to do with it because when they made Metroid Prime or the new Falliut games they could have easily kept the genres the same for them, but they didn't. They made them FPS games.

When? Nothing has been said about Silent Hills being multi-platform. I'm sure you hope it is, but one can only conclude that since the demo wasn't released on any other platform, that this game will most likely be a Sony exclusive.

pwnsause_returns  +   533d ago
they didnt say that SHs was a PS4 exclusive...Only PT is.

lets be honest here.... this game will ultimately be multi-platform..

Konami wants to make money, and they need to start fleshing out their Ips more than just depending on Metal Gear to save the day. they want this game on as many platforms as possible.

if theres anything here we should speak about, is whether or not this game will be third person or first person, and if it will be tied to morpheus in some way as a PS exclusive feature (hell throw in oculus in there for the PC guys, makes this conversation even more interesting).

Ok, that would be scary.... but if it's a PM exclusive, it means i MUST buy Morpheus? That's a nonsense... if someone will think about buying a PS4 for this game, they have to buy the helmet too then. Lot of money just to play 1 game.
Mh... no, not a PM exclusive according to me.
Tedakin  +   533d ago
That would kill this game instantly..... Would be a scary game, but really VR only? Really? You have to buy a potentially 200 dollar peripheral to play it?
MasterCornholio  +   533d ago
I dont see why you can't have both options though. I dont see how a game like this can't play without Morpheus.

A little off topic I don't see how any game that uses Morpheus can't be played without it.

I could see it launching with Morpheus but as a whole game, possible if Kojima's involved. Maybe a PS exclusive feature?

Monstar  +   533d ago
Wont it have to be in complete FP view for it to work? Silent Hills and PT has NO relations, that was just a playable teaser for the trailer. Silent Hills will most likely be 3rd person.

Honestly dont think this will happen.

Not a good idea for Konami, it would only restrict the number of customers.
Yet, it would really be great if the game is Morpheus compatible.
Rocky5  +   533d ago
I don't get this site some times.

The multiplatform game should not be exclusive just like tomb raider shouldn't be exclusive on Xbox.

Such a big stink made for tomb raider yet there are people in here saying they want it exclusive for ps4 & if it is its essentially great.

By all means have a mode made specifically for Morpheus but by no means limit the game to one console.
D-riders  +   533d ago
What this is busines, companies make the best deals for their platforms. I think the thing that passed people off about tomb raider was that it wasn't originally announced at E3 as an exclusive. So what ms did was build more attention to the game at yeah people were passed because at first they thought they were getting it but then it's like ms went out and sought this game for an exclusive deal. Not like they said oh from the start it's exclusive.that pisses people off splinter cell was multiple, wasn't that big of deal when it was announced exclusive but people know we that from the beginning.At this point if you have an Xbox 1, it's starting to look like you need a ps4, no matter how loyal a fan you are, the stuff Sony is doing isn't just next Gen it's futuristic and the race is becoming lopsided like ps2 gen. Not saying people didn't buy Xbox back then he'll 30 million people did but if you look at the sales now ms will probably finish this gen at 50 million console and Sony at 110 million Nintendo 30 million.that extra 1 billion on better ram seems like a better deal than ms 1 billion on games. Because people can say games all they won't and performance doesn't matter. But as you can see trying to convince people that a lower powered Console that plays the same games is a better option is a problem and not working. People keep saying I want this game and that game that's why I got an Xbox and a ps4. That's crap, those are new franchises and look great but a new franchise on a new system...ugh not the best games look at watch dogs. So you buy a system for what it can do down the line not for what's present at launch. And ms has a decent line up for 2015. But with vita ps tv, project morpheus, and even though psnow pricing socks right now. Kinetict is not competition for that and either is a tablet controller.
Shinox  +   533d ago
Look I'm not predicting its exclusive or not but haven't you know that the original Silent Hill game was a PS Exclusive , even the teaser itself uses the same music from the original game , totally makes sense to me
