CraveOnline: "The now-cancelled Silent Hills‘ “playable teaser” P.T. may have contained a message from Hideo Kojima that the project wasn’t destined to hit store shelves."
That's quite a stretch, even by Kojima's standards. Grasping at straws.
That isn't a stretch at all? Dad referring to father figure of company...aka boss. Killing them off = firing them. Will be back = he'll have a new studio Sounds like others from Konami will be joining him if any of the rumors are to be believed. * Situation sounds like an angry arrogant boss who doesn't value his employees so he's treating them like crap to force them to want to leave.
Yes it is a totally stretch, from people with far too much free time on their hands, who just want to come up with any little thing they possibly could
@3-4-5 you are hilarious
Add "number 23!" to that list and you see why it's a stretch. It's cherry picking.
These stories only resemble each other because Konami's games division is a dying nightmare at the moment...
The things desperate journalists do for a story...
I don't even care about this game. Won't be playing it. just saying....to Completely dismiss it is JUST as arrogant. I never said it WAS fact...just trying to play along for the sake of the argument. Can't have an open mind and even try to think about things differently? Not even allowed to suggest or discuss or even put for a thought? just have to arrogantly dismiss it? It most likely is a stretch, but you guys are arrogant.
yep, not a stretch. It also confirms half life 3.
Matches well, I can see it. Why wouldn't it be? What else would it mean if not for that?
"To completely dismiss it is arrogant" "Hey, you know those lines of dialogue that were used to set up some eerie back story in PT and possibly set up the story for the new Silent Hills? Those totally are a hidden message of Kojima telling us he's going to be fired a year down the road. Jet Fuel can't melt steel beams Debrah!"
This is the videogame equivalent to the old Elvis sightings from the 80s magazines
Or the 90's Tupac is still alive
Kojima has already did his most prestigious troll, he has screwed with so many heads that he has reached Evlis sightings status lol But yes, this is a huge stretch
Grasping at clicks.
"PT" = "PleaseKonamiDon' TFireMe"
Try again next time? Cuz that's PKDFM not P.T.
Hah, QUICK MAKE AN ARTICLE :D
For the people that dont grasp the joke..the P in please and T in dont is a stretch in itself, saying that he thinks this article is a stretch. While I donT agree with it being a stretch, Perhaps Kojima is as smart as many believe him to be - it's not a stretch for an intellect individual to do something like this. He couldn't just put it plainly or anyless clever otherwise Konami might have picked up on this. It's just his way of trolling Konami
@zidane1341 It's a joke. Calm down and put your pants back on.
That symbolism and reference is kinda spot on.
I actually don't think it's that much of a stretch. We're talking about Kojima here; a person known for hidden messages and meaning. I'm not saying it's 'true', I'm just saying it's worth considering: “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.”
Lol, next people are going to say P.T. was really Kojima's resignation and a metaphor for his life working at Konami. An endless cycle that gets darker and darker. Nah though, it really is a shame such a great concept was lost because of stupid decisions by Konami.
Holy Shit I didn't think of that. wow thats good. TBH though he has been saying he is unhappy for a very long time
Haha yeah, just sort of came to me. They have been more or less forcing Kojima to keep doing Metal Gear for a long time. I'm curious to see what his next project will be after doing MGS for so long.
And imagine how much better MGS would have been if he had been allowed to stop working on them when he wanted to. That series is an utter mess.
Its a stretch, but doable. LOL!
Didn't anyone make it out of the house in PT? There was a 20ft sign saying "Help, Konami are going to remove me from Silent Hills. Lots of love, Hideo Kojima"... I'm surprised so many people missed that subtle clue.
I got to the part where you go down the street and find Kojima's house, there if you can get to the basement you see him having tea with Guillermo del toro.
Yeah I remember that bit, you can hear Guillermo trying to console Hideo and talking him out of going to Konami to give them a piece of his mind. "Don't do it Hideo there not worth it, Konami's just a slag"
Yeah but it was blood-stained and impossible to read some of the letters. I thought it was just complaining about "silent ills"
You didn't find the toothbrush in the bathroom? When Lisa first pins you down you get a nice close-up of her face, what you need to do in this instance is quickly use the toothbrush on her teeth, the cleaning of the teeth also cleans the blood off the sign. As for your missing H in Hills you will find it behind her left wisdom tooth but it’s only visible after you used the toothbrush on her.
“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.” -Dad = Konami -Dad being a drag: eat the same kind of food, dress the same, sit in front of the same kind of games… = All Konami wanted to do was continue making the same kind of games and watching the money rolling in like all the big game companies today. -He goes and kills us all! = Firing Kojima and closing down his projects / separating him from them -I will be coming back, and I’m bringing my new toys with me = Kojima will start making his own games independent of Konami I believe Kojima wanted the series to end long ago, but was forced to come back time after time by Konami. If Kojima didn't go back they would have made the games without him, but how could he sit by and watch his creation be spoilt by others without the same artistic vision? Now things have come to a bit of a head it seems.
Why would feel toro and reedus be apart of the project if kojima wasn't interested in coming back to the series
That is a good point, it may just be a coincidence and that the message has nothing to do with current events, but it is interesting to speculate.
Yes, Kojima made a demo for a game he knew he would never make before he started making the demo to that game, and decided to sneak in a message that he wouldn't be working on the game despite the fact he released that demo. Makes perfect sense.
Don't forget the part where Kojima wasn't even a writer.
Wow, if that is true, then wow Kojima, I salute you. Really subtle.
Get out of here!
Lol oh i love this stuff
New theory. P.T. is Kojima's metaphorical message about what working at Konami is really liked. The hallway is Konami and going through over and over is him being forced to make MGS over and over and the worse the house gets is the worse Konami is as an employer. The baby in the sink is Zone of the Ender 3.
and Zone of the Enders HD collection.
I think it's true. And i think "bring my new toys with me" could be referencing the Fox Engine. Maybe he's gonna claim legal right to its use outside konami. What else could toys mean?
GET THE PEOPLE IN THE WHITE COATS, WE HAVE A LOOSE LOON AGAIN!!!
People will believe anything these days...
Guys I found out the numbers in Black Ops correspond to the time and date Kojima left!
The numbers mason!
Do why haven't we heard anything from kojima yet? Why is he silent
Probably just read, "Sorry for everything...Psych!"
Shut up Butters......
that's trying way too hard to find hidden meaning that just isn't there.
Right, people are getting a little stupid with this thing, yeah Kojima's known for messing with in-game messages with MGS, but gettimg fired and such is a bit more serious, I doubt he'd prepare a game to be cancelled.. as would anyone. Shameless but, Lucy needs the attention https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Have you ever heard the phrase "the writing is on the wall"? Kojima probably told Konami he wanted to work on a new IP and they were like "no, but you can make a silent hill if you want. And then he started to and was like... You know what, fuck this." Toward the end of PT's development, his frusteration mounted to the point where it was inescapable. So he put a clue in there knowing full well he may be leaving the company at the end of MGS5.
This theory was posted on Gamefaqs, so site copied it or what?? I didnt check the link.
havent checked your gamefaqs link. but lets just presume that every link/blogsite from n4g is unoriginal and made from a post by a neogaf or random forum member. i personally dont blame these websites, they read a post fro a forum and the write something about it. even damaini from gametrailers was going to base all his videos on neogaf news.
Why are you guys saying this is grasping at straws? this is EXACTLY what just happened and its something kojima would do that the konami idiots wouldn't notice. its only speculation anyways shouldn't get all bent out of shape over it.
maybe, maybe not. who gives a shit. we all knew kojima didnt want to make mgs games and we all knew hehad to carry on. was it bad that he had to? probs not, he had to fix a lot of errors from mgsiv. anyway. we just hate sites making things out of nothing. shit. i just flped a coin and it fell on heads, is that a sign from twoface. did it 4 other times and it landed on head 3 times.fk me its dangerous.
Guys...slow down with the pills already. Kojima is known for fooling fans but this is too much. Do you really think he would team up with Del Toro and Reedus just for this ? They were gonna do SH,but sh*t happens :(...
This is the most successful click bait article I've ever seen
great, maybe he meant it, maybe he didnt. lr maybe he wrote those things not knowing he a tually felt those rhings. but basically all we know 100% is that this site is fishing for any kinda news. people who have yet to click the link..... just ignore it
Interesting Conspiracy Theory... but I'm not biting.
I would like to say that, everything from almost everywhere can be connected to real life actions or events. If Kojima did actually knew he was getting the kick and added this to the game.. Well he is a freaking genius. But yeah... Its a long shot...
