Fans started a petition asking Kojima Productions to continue with development of Silent Hills, with both Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro on board.
As if it will make any difference :( But i will sign it anyway.
Damn with that Kojima firing thing...from the moment i learned Konami may fire Kojima i lost generally my interest for Metal Gear and Silent Hills
Then you're soft or corny because NO MAN I have never met would make me not want to purchase a game I have anticipated for 7 years. Kojima is just a developer...PERIOD. He has 1 successful franchise under his belt yet you feel compelled to want to suck him off and boycott a publisher after THEIR falling out. You know NOTHING about the reason for the separation yet you take sides because you like metal gear. Which is ironic since you're NOT going to buy it because they parted ways even though HE is still involved with the game. [email protected]
@Syntax-Error lol you're the nerd for equating manliness with purchasing a video game.
I have never like either game to be honest, just because I'm not interested is what goes on in Japan all that much. I'd sign a petition, however I would not stipulate who makes it. It increases the changes of it being made. For those who care about this, I'd suggest as much.
Yeah :(...but I'll sign it too.
You are not real the real Guts, OT, Without Kojima konami is just nami, lol
I wonder if anyone could really get that IP from Konami - if a monster like EA or Activision notice how much press a cancel got, they might be able to make literal dumptrucks of money. Probably not, but I will remain hopeful.
It would be easier for EA or someone to just hire Kojima and Del Toro and have them make the game with same actor and change the name. They wont have to pay Konami crap Konami just owns the name. Not like they can't get together and make a horror game with a different name.
^^ See if they were smart THAT'S what the petition should be for.
I'd rather Silent HIlls be dead than for Activision or EA to get their hands on it. Game hasn't been the same since Team Silent left, but at least I never felt like the other games where made just for the sake of milking the franchise.
Sleeping Dogs(True Crime) all over.
Lol so true, people trying to make a difference from the comfort of their living room. Best way is to speak with your wallet or maybe just do a little strike @ konami headquarters.
It's not even called Kojima productions anymore. They renamed it Konami productions. Maybe we will get a new contra out of this. It's about time Konami did something with that series.
Very pointless, I'd rather folks sign for the IP to be sold lol. Under Konami that game won't get all the funding or attention it needs. Its best to just let it go until someone buys the IP as I don't see Konami in gaming much longer.
We should all sign it. I guess they don't care about money.
This won't do shit like most petitions on that site.
* Quiet Mounds
Petitions are pointless are they? they've worked in the past
Oh when? Please dont say ''GTA 5'' because that game was planned anyways. The petition didnt change that.
@DoomeDx Well, there was this recent petition for removing paid mods from Steam, and they removed them after the uproar. It wasn't just because of the petition, but the petition helped as well.
DoomeDx er Dark Souls PC petition to name one Let's also have a look and see what other petitions have made a difference, although they maybe not gaming related they're still petitions just like this one https://www.change.org/vict... yep, petitions don't do anything I doubt this petition will make any difference but there's no harm in trying
Yeah I remember a petition that got NBC to make a season 2 of the show Jericho. People mailed box after box of peanuts to NBC because it had a meaning in the show...
But have petitions ever gotten a big company to re-hire someone they fired and make a huge budget game with a big name Hollywood director?
Not as much as your comment...
IP owned by konami, kojima can make a horror game it just won't be silent hills.
Considering Konami's position on things as of late I don't think that they will think twice to someone (Sony perhaps) offering to buy the IP rights. Hell, Kojima could buy the rights out of spite. I'm pretty sure he has one hell of severance package from Konami that he could use to weasel something out of them. It would be great if this was all one elaborate publicity stunt, but no sane person or company would let anything go on this long or this far just for a publicity stunt; not even Mr. Tiger Blood would have gone this far.
Konami's retirement from the New York Stock Exchange does not make this seem like a stunt. That move will lose them a LOT of investors. Konami's in deep water and they know it, and all just for being vindictive and unappreciative of the ONE guy they still have that can make them any money. As for the petition, I don't know about making Silent Hills, cause right now Kojima is persona non grata at Konami, but he COULD just start from scratch with new assets as a new IP with still Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus on board and Konami could do jack and shit about it. Hell, Sony would totally jump on that bandwagon, considering they picked up Keiichiro Toyama after he left Konami to make the Siren series.
@DVAcma actually delisting from NYSE is a cost saving move, and only 0.5% of shares traded were on the NYSE. It costs 5-6 million or so to be listed on it each year, and you can still purchase stock as ADR shares just like you can Sony.
Exactly ,really it could be silent hills to everyone including Kojima just name it something else for those IP problems.
I really hope they (Kojima and Del Toro) find a way to make it real somehow!
Kojima can name it "Quiet Hills" lol
That's the trick, it only needs to be a horror game, not Silent Hill. If Kojima and Del Toro make a game, the title of the game doesn't matter.
Instead of silent hill call it Dead Night or Nightmares or Silent wish or something that can match up to silent hill.
i'll just sign this and get going. i hope it will live some day.
I agree dear sir :(
Oh stop signing these flipping petitions for every little thing. No-one cares, and the whole concept gets devalued each time.
so far 2,223 people disagree with you.
Sony needs to buy the ip
It would be logical since Silent Hills was a PS4 exclusive, but I really wouldn't mind it being a multiplatform.
It was never announced as a PS4 exclusive. Just because PT was doesnt mean the actual game would have been...
@rawrock It would probably be like that in the end.
MS should buy the IP since they want the variety for their line-up, or maybe Nintendo since they are lacking third party content. Or maybe it should be multiplatform so everyone could enjoy this particular title.
Salty of a game that's been canceled...never that.
Waste of time, never happen. It's Konami's IP and if they wanted it to continue I am sure it could have, but that decision has been made and they are parting ways with Kojima. This happened recently, its not like it happened a year ago and fans are trying to change Konami's minds, they recently made that decision. However, all the power to you if it works I'll play it.
Love it when fans feel the need to try and force something to happen. Let it go people. Move on.
what a bunch of idiots. why start a petition now when we havent got a clue what has happened with kojima productions. we dont know what kojima is going to do next and we dont know what is happening to his team. kojima got sacked/left for a reason. you really think he will work on another game with konami straight away? kinda pointless imo.
I totally agree. Every time something happens that we don't agree with, now we start writing petitions. I think I'll write on to my wife next time too and see how that works for me. Probably the same as this one is going to turn out. Nothing gonna change, dumb asses!!!!!
I think it's pretty obvious what happened to kojima and his studio and his team at this point -_- I agree though a petition won't help. The CEO will laugh it off and keep pushing out pachinko machines and crappy mobile games....
People day waste of time but with enough support these petitions do get noticed. If you believed in PT sign and shar. You're only stamping down potential if you don't.
just sign it and hope for the best
It's super pointless. I think Konami knows they are missing out on tons of money and sales due to the success and praise of P.T. If Konami doesn't want our money, then they don't have to take it. No need to beg them.
If either Sony or Nintendo procure kojima the possibilities are endless, I can't really see what use Microsoft would have unless for an Allan wake sequel which I would love.
Alan wake with Del Toro's idea's. Muahahahaha. would be sweet. Now those would be nightmares (in a good way).
This is sad.
Konami in trouble lol there rich as fuck in Japan there just pulling out of the west and pry gaming it's to big a risk now Mgs for all the love it gets the most it sold is 10 million units and the cost of making The Phantom Pain alone must be huge
This IS completely pointless. It's impossible for this game to happen from a legal standpoint, it doesn't matter how many signatures the petition gets. Kojima doesn't own silent hill, therefore, he cannot make the game. Very simple.
I sign this petition and let hope so it's something Actually can change ,even Pc version can coming:) maybe kickstart is one of the options??
These guys begging for a pc version on every article related to console it's really annoying.
First petition I'll ever sign.
Kojima and Del Toro could still make a horror game without calling it Silent Hills ya know, and put it on KickStarter.
A petition, really? Lol. Kojima is done, deal with it.
It probably can't solve whatever relationship problems Konami has with Kojima right now and Del Toro probably can't finish the game on its own, but it does show some love for the franchise just to keep it alive, so that's something.
Sadly Change.org hardly changes anything.
Never really got into the Silent Hills series but I'll sign it for the gamers
