Konami has sent Eurogamer over a brief Q&A on the likely Silent Hills cancellation. In it the Japanese company says it will continue to develop the Silent Hill series, but it fails to deny Silent Hills, specifically, has been cancelled.
So no Kojima, no del Toro and no Reedus but they are still plan to continue the series in the future? Do Konami not like making money or are they allergic to success? Either way, RIP Konami, you'll become irrelevant once MGS 5 is released.
Thing is Konami is a big company in Japan that sells many things, from washing machines to bottled water. The video game branch of Konami has not been cost effective. So its likely Konami is slashing that part of its company, they got tired of giving Kojima so much money for his projects. They could totally end their games division and still carry on as a successful company in Japan.
Well, good luck to them. Their gaming division wont be missed anyways. It has done its part. I'd rather they go down the drain, than milk the MGS franchise without Kojima.
They got tired of giving Kojima money? The only times when Konami posts actually good profit is when a Kojima game (MGS) is released.
HEY you dont make story they dont make washing machine and bottled water wtf are you saying and where tf are you getting those lol
if you are thinking this https://encrypted-tbn3.gsta... then no it's not a washing maching it's an arcade. well ok it's square.....like a washing machine :D i give you that. and if you are thinking this http://img2.wikia.nocookie.... then no, it's nothing to do with bottled water made by Konami and delivered by old snake himself. you got more agrees than disagrees...........fml
If you look at a financial breakdown of where Konami makes money, you'd see that they actually make the most profit from video games. There's no way they're cutting back on that. I wouldn't be surprised if Konami wanted to pump out Metal Gear Solid games regularly and Kojima was fired because he wasn't willing to do that.
You totally pulled that out of your arse! They do not make washing machines and bottled water, card games, slot machines/pokie machines and fitness clubs yes but the rest no.
@mogwaii Agreed. They have their fingers in a few pies but it's all entertainment (mostly games) or fitness-based.
Konami's funny. No, seriously they're joking. No. I mean they're a joke.
Hey now lets not get too hasty. Their Sound Voltex arcade games are pretty fantastic. Give them a few more years at least. I just got into it! :P
Looking at what they're doing, I'm almost certain it's a budget thing. Refusing to deny it's not happening? Letting expensive directors and actors for said game go? They probably didn't want to spend the money. And the fact that no other series but Kojima's are affected. Now I wonder if Metal Gear Solid V is releasing sooner than even Kojima wanted. It's really looking like a money thing and I'm guessing they couldn't afford Kojima's ambitions. I wish they'd just come out and say something. Outside of those titles, Contra and the old Castlevania are the only ones I care about from them, so it looks like they've lost my business.
remember the angry bird take down and value of all phones went up wonder how much id get for my account right now with P.T lol even tho i have maybe £9000 worth of games on my account i wont sell so soon
It was flappy bird not angry bird just correcting u m8
lol am not into gaming, almost tho, thanks butt
They are not just a game company...
they dont make bottled waters and washing machine
Unless you have some evidence to back up this claim you keep trotting out, I think you're confusing Konami with another company (dunno which). They only do entertainment and fitness clubs.
Actually they have their current revenues from Fitness and slots machines and other ventures . It's clear now that they dont even care about appeareances anymore and are basically shutting down most consoles games initiative , besides the obviously lucrative ones that they'll milk
One of the most sad cancellations ever if true.
F*ck you Konami, just f*ck you.
Yeah, Game is smoke. oh well
Konami's only purpose is now vetting Yugioh to Vita.
OK, I already got it, the game isnt happening, lets move on shall we??
What a terrible shame. PT was potentially a new and exciting (terrifying) direction that Silent Hill could have gone through to make the series feel fresh. I imagine it would probably have sold better than any Silent Hill game before it with Kojima and Del Toro involved. Definitely the worst cancellation ever for me.
Kojima, Del Toro and Reedus were a dream team and Sillent Hills, with this trio, had the potential to be one of the best games of this generation if not the very best. Konami... http://i.imgur.com/10lkUdy....
Ugg ... This sickens me. Silent Hills was the game I was most exited for. Sucks.
What a shame. It really is. Hope Kojima and Del Toro can still team up and make another horror game under a new publisher. I think MGS5 will be my last Metal Gear. I am an avid collector and have met Kojima twice. This makes me sad. Help Sony make The Last Guardian Kojima!... I wish :(
what is going on at Konami?
It's one thing that Kojima had differences with Konami, it's another that their public relations should be this lousy.
