SH Paradise:"From this tiny sentence comes a small glimmer of hope. Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro are still in talks for future projects but Norman Reedus is out."
I still believe the franchise can be saved by the right team who are actual fans of the series and know how to capture that SH atmosphere and tension that made the game unique * * Silent Hill japan Team**It's gonna take time and patience, something that a lot people have completely run out of.
Looks at article title... No its no the end of Silent Hills as was officially stated. K seeya guys....
It's remotely possible that Kojima and Del Toro plan to develop Silent Hills/a spiritual successor themselves after any studio split, perhaps with Konami acting as a third-party publisher. Just thinking out loud. EDIT: For some reason I said "Bandai Namco" instead of Konami. Coffee!
Well, Reedus was pretty much the least important part of the announcement. (as much as i love the guy!) We'd have had no idea he was involved with PT at all if it wasn't for the last 20 seconds. XD .. Lets just hope for the best, I guess. All the talk of losing the big names sort of ignores the fact that a significant team were working on PT/SHs with them - all may not be lost.
You know what would be a great shocker at E3 this year? Sony picking up the two directors (Del Toro and Kojima) and creating a new horror franchise loosely based on PT. I mean, we are having a JRPG comeback and all from the Sony camp, why not resurrect the console horror games as well?
Without Kojima and del Toro, Silent Hills is dead to me. Maybe it could be good still but I'll be too busy wondering what it could have been.
End of P.T. = R.I.P. Silent Hills. Finally there was real terror and feelings like SH1-2 (and yes, 3 too). But a lot more, it was super scary. I can't stand another bad copy, bad made with bad story and 0 fear factor Silent Hill. Give up Konami and try to invent something new, at least.
if it was a pc demo modders would try to make a new game out of it lol on console death is death.
If a new Silent Hill is created by them, I just hope they remember that the city itself transforms to itself to the protagonist's (or antagonist's) fears and shortcomings. I don't want to play a game that doesn't live up to the name. I also suggest that Konami hire Mashairo Ito and Akira Yamaoka for the project (or people equal of caliber in terms of quality).
