They've lost their marbles along with Square-Enix, Capcom, and Sega.

Square kinda lost their way last generation. Although I don't really blame them. They didn'tuse any third party engines and decided to make one themselves which apparently was a complete nightmare.

Capcom did pretty well to be really honest. They tried a few things. Some worked well some didn't. Their own engine was pretty efficient and they had decent PC ports.

The best thing Sega did was to publish platinum games stuff

Konami don't need AAA games. With games becoming more expensive to make and Kojima being treated like a rockstar they are just lowering their risk of losses. To us it seems like a hateful retreat but they are a just another company, and companies avoid big risks if possible.

I dislike the writing style on this article. Less is more sometimes.... Konami appears to be going under. They're probably backing out of the video game business to focus on other ventures.

It's a shame this had to happen now, before we even had the chance to experience Silent Hills.

I'm fairness, you can't really cancel a game after its release ;)
