Just days ago, Konami issued a takedown notice for a YouTube video that was critical of the company. Then, the ban was reversed. The video’s creator still isn’t quite sure what happened.
Konami is really making sure it will never return to consoles. Not even critiquing the company?Dafuq outta HEHR.
WTH is up with Konami ?? i think there going after EA`s most prized prize of biggest douchebag company of the year award. If they are they have certainly made a good job of it, thats for sure. Wat aload of blah blah blah.
Good! They need to be tought a lesson in humility.
Man, Konami is making me more and more sick with their decisions. A few months ago, I loved them. Now, I can't stand seeing their name. MGS V is definitely the last Konami game I'm buying.
Konami is destroying themselves in the console market. if they ever try to return they won't be welcomed with the same respect they once had
Konami uses to be one of my most favorite video game company out there for 3 reasons, Suikoden, Silent Hill & MGS now there is no more Suikoden no more Silent Hill & they cut ties with Kojima that means no more MGS after V so there is nothing left to keep my interest on that company anymore they stop making all my favorite games I wonder what left for them anymore PES? lol...
Contra, Ninja Turtles, Gradius/Life Force, Gyruss, Castlevania, Blades of Steel, Rush'n Attack, Simpsons Arcade, X-Men Arcade, Zombies Ate My Neighbours. These are the games I grew up with them.
I grew up with some of those games, too!
I am debating not purchasing the new MGS. I do not like how Konami is handling things lately. It seems like people at the top are losing their minds. Something seriously personal must have happened between Kojima and them.
Kojima probably doesn't want to end up being a mobile game developer. That's what's up. The man has been waiting for ages to have the hardware to support his ideas, and now that the wait is finally over, Konami goes bananas. I'd tell 'em to fuck off.
Yea, he left the restards burn!
I was looking forward to buying MGS, as I rarely buy games, but after Konami acting like such pathetic children throwing a tantrum because they didn't get their own way, doing any disspicable thing, regardless if it hurts them as well, has changed my decision. I'll be renting it then buying it used. I'll donate money to whatever Hideo's next project is. Konami isn't getting a cent of my money.
Wait, wait wait... YouTube... did the right thing?!?!?!?!
Yeah I think that's the bigger issue here.
Konami is a mess
I think that if Konami want's to put more time into their other interests, that's fine. But if they don't want anything more to do with Metal Gear or Silent hill, they should allow another developer to continue on with the franchises. I think they would get much more respect if they did that.
