I don't think the Silent Hill IP is worth "billions", but it wouldn't surprise me if that's the price tag Konami is showing possible buyers considering their business tactics of late. I'm not a big fan of the Silent Hill games, but it's obvious that many MANY gamers want to see this game come to fruition with Kojima and Del Toro on board. Here's hoping that actually happens.

i think its worth billions because of how popular P.T. was. Konami trying to get people to forget it made it even more popular. even casuals have played or have heard of Silent Hills. this is why i don't get why Konami cancelled it just when the Silent Hill franchise was getting well known and popular. absolute joke.

Would been nice if MS had bought so to grow their library, yes many would moan but better coming than shelved

I personally don't care what system it comes out on, as long as DelToro and Hideo Kojima involved as well, I just want them to make the game they envisioned. I know P.T. wasn't indicative of what Silent Hills would be like, but it showed the type of atmosphere those two visionary directors are capable of creating. I hope someone opens the wallet and pays the ransom I'm sure Konami will ask for.

I hope no one buys Silent Hills and Kojima & Del Toro kickstart their new independant horror game project instead

This would be the other possibility that would probably be more ideal seeing as this would likely allow the game to end up on more than just one platform. I'd back that Day 1 for sure!
