"While speaking to Del Toro about his next movie, Crimson Peak, I told him how devastated I was by Silent Hills sudden cancellation".
“Norman [Reedus, the Walking Dead actor who was attached to play the lead role] was super happy, Hideo was super happy, and so was I. I know there’s a petition going on the internet and it’s gathering signatures. I would add my signature to it, and hope that someone pays attention.” And Konami just destroyed what could have been the best horror game in the history. I am getting tired of insulting them.
I agree, it's like a bad joke at this point. Here's hoping Kojima, Del Toro and Reedus get a chance to collaborate in the future.
We dont care its Silent hills. We cared about the content of the demo. It would be wise if a studio would hire both of them to do a horror game. It can be done under a different name. Its not like PT resembled Silent Hills. I dont care which studio I was dreaming of playing this game.
Come on Sony..do something!!! 4 The Players!!! Komjima, DelToro...anyone...Red barrel...people need to start collabin NOW. Afterwards we'll have a big party when its gone gold!
Such a stupid decision, both for fans and for them. They announce a focus on mobile like people are going to be excited to play some shit MGS port on an iphone. Sucks to Suck Konami... Sucks to suck.
Well Konami loves making people unhappy. They made Hideo unhappy, Guillermo unhappy and Norman unhappy. But most importantly, they made gamers unhappy. As a big fan of Silent Hills the destruction of this project made me extremely unhappy. But you know according to them catering to mobile gamers is more important. I hate Konami........
Yeah...alot of people don't care about the product...what could have been, the artistic value of it. Konami could have been behind one of the greatest horrors(of any medium) ever created. But nah. They're idiots. Money speaks louder and when you focus on money you lose sight of what makes it
I wonder what happens if Konami gets boo-ed at E3 throughout their whole presentation until there is positive news on Kojima.
On a side note....Crimson Peak does look like some really special horror. My disdain for Konami grows ever more with each passing day.
Get the team back together, rename it to Spooky Town, and change Pyramid Head to Tetrahedron Head. Done.
I would call it something terrifying like Quiet Elevated Gradients.... Spooky.
Crazy Fetus: The Reckoning.
I'd call it: ABORTED
Guys guys the game should be simply titled: "Sins Of The Father" It even sounds good on paper.
Just call it Quiet Mountain
Sony E3, I wonder if there will be some major announcement. Maybe they bought the rights to this.
Yeah its up to Sony to save this project. Hopefully they will announce that they bought it and that they put Hideo and Guillermo in charge of it. But I know the chances of that are very slim.
No chance. Stop dream please...
I do hope the 3 team up again for a horror game.
Maybe that's the game konami needed to turn the tide around, instead of milking their franchises with nonexistent production values by hiring no name low grade studios. it would have been a priceless PR stunt and a blockbuster of a game under Kojima's direction. Instead, they get cold feet and duck under any criticism. that's intellectual suicide
It's kickstarter time! ok, ok, maybe all our money wont be enough :'(
lol alot of crushed dreams :D
Hideo Kojima making a Silent Hill game for fans such as Dark Sniper was a dream(nightmare)come true. With his propensity to break the fourth wall in several of his games, Kojima would have undoubtedly found a creative way to speak directly to the player in the recently cancelled Silent Hills game. PlayStation®4 owners have been robbed of what could have been a classic. If Dark Sniper had to make a prediction, this generation will be the one where a lot of gaming divisions are going to go down in flames. The economy simply does provide the capital that is needed to develop the AAA titles that we are accustomed to enjoying. In theory, mobile gaming does seem to be a logical step in minimizing costs and maximizing profit. Doing so, Konami will alienate the core audience who got them there. We could very well be approaching another video game crash, especially in the Japanese market. Whoever ends up signing Hideo Kojima, will end up being part of the comeback of Japanese gaming. $niper
Can Kojima and Del Toro collaborate on a different game? Or does Konami have a non-compete agreement to prevent this?
They can collaborate, just not on silent hills, or with Konami as publisher. right Now, Kojima is employed (Or under Contract SMH) with Konami, once MGSV is out and the contract is done, Lots of publisher are going to flock to him. I still think both will collaborate. They've seen the mark PT left with People, hell there are games being made that was inspired by PT. they can just rename their game to Something else besides silent Hill
Why doesn't Sony or MS swoop in and take this project? Just have the same talent with a different name. Of course all of the existing assets belong to Konami, so we would be in for a long wait.
This was seriously going to be the scariest game of all time.
One word... Kickstarter
Somebody please save this game
This was supposed to be my dream horror game. I was sure it could've been the scariest game I ever play even though we hadn't seen gameplay footage of SH yet.
I have a feeling Kojima and Del Toro are going to find each other again and work on this with a different name. It would make sense as Kojima's first project after leaving Konami.
