Konami announced its financial results for the first half of the fiscal year, and they're strong, both in general and for the video games segment.
Ugh ..and I wished your stocks took a big hit. Jeez gaming these days.
Their still riding off the back of MGSV at the moment. Lets wait and see what happens when their first game with out Hideo comes out.
Theyre big in Japan because theyve switched their market to phone games and pachinko machines. Damn just me saying that sounds insane, if you told someone just a couple of years back, no one would believe you. They even have a mgs themed pachinko machine. Its sad feels like a stab in the back. Konamis always been one of the OGs, theyve turned into a bunch of rats... The golden age of amazing Japanese games has ended. Its all about the $$$ now. I feel like they will regret it in the end. I can see Konamis gaming sector going bankrupt, because you may be making money now with your gambling machines and crappy phone games, but the loyalty and respect they had before is gone, good luck getting loyal fans from gamblers and casual phone game people. Mgs survive looks like crap, so I think theyll stop with MGS after that. Pes will probably go independent some how and make their own football game. Also karmas a [email protected] but hey, they can always depend on their gyms to keep them afloat in Japan 😂 think of it for a sec, Konami could possibilly turn into a fitness company exclusively, lol.
Konami will be irrelevant in the not too distant future.
Why, because you don't like how they treated Kojima? It's time to grow up and move on. They, like a lot of people in the industry don't like how the AAA market was headed. This is why you see lots of key people leave and go indie. Konami is a profit driven company like most companies and they seem to be doing better now.
"Its time to grow up and move on" is the most ironic statement ever coming from you. Hypocrite much?
More like how they approach gaming in general now.
Let me put it this way; They’ve butchered Metal Gear Solid, they’ve killed the Silent Hill series and in the last few years they have shown how disrespectful they’ve treated their employees, especially Kojima. Maybe you should grow up and face reality?
Really hope this means we get a new Metal Gear game...I really want to see what the series can do without Kojima(he was a great director but a very stubborn one). Please make an Ocelot centered game.
I'm afraid what you'll be getting is MGS Survival. Nice little Multiplayer-Microtransaction-f est for you... but hay, that's what us gamers want right!
time for a new Silent Hill or one big remastered collection for PS4
We don't count Pachinko machines as games Konomi...
Make another good Castlevania and Suikoden game and I will support Konami again.
Oh well if Konami has high hopes everything should all be just fine. smh
Someone should tell them pachinko machines are not gaming.
You expect high hopes with games like MGS Surviver? I would agree if it was something like PT but oh that was cancelled. Really? Silenhill not worth the effort? What are they thinking.
This is why game companies are doing things their way and not cater to gamers anymore... Gamers complain about everything these days and they still buy the products.... All the current major players have something that has pissed off gamers in some way... EA, Ubisoft, Activision, Konami, Nintendo, Microsoft, and yes, even Sony... Yet everyone continues to buy their games in droves.
well yea this is what happens when you shift your business into a market like pachinko and mobile phone games.
You won't be getting any of my money especially with games like Metal Gear Survive. As it stands The Phantom Pain will probably be the last Konomi game but.
