GI:"The video game industry is a difficult place to make a living. Even the most popular and seemingly foolproof series can fall on their faces, all too often resulting in layoffs and studio closures. In this make-or-break climate, mid-tier publishers are especially endangered, requiring exponentially larger budgets than indie teams to fund and promote their games, while rarely landing the indomitable hits that goliath publishers like Activision and EA enjoy. As the fine line between financial success and failure continues to erode, I can't help but think that a company like Konami needs all the help it can get. Unfortunately, today's announcement of the cancelation of Silent Hills reads like a classic page from the Konami playbook, which at this point I can only assume is entitled The Art Of Letting Down Your Biggest Fans."
