As with Silent Hill: Origins, it appears there's a rumour that Silent Hill: Homecoming has been leaked already and is available for download illegally, presumably for PC or Xbox 360. The file is supposedly on a private tracker at BitSoup.
I dont think it would be good to show this off. If Homecoming doesn't sell well Konami is ending the series.
I find it very difficult for me to get excited about Silent Hill: Homecoming. 'The Collective' have never even made a decent video game. I don't what the hell Konami was thinking.
I really hope this game is good. I have been a fan of the series since the first one on the original PSone.
If this is true, you know you just contributed to its piracy?
Wonder why it's never the PS3 version of a game the one in that position. Same thing happened with GTAIV.
Thats because currently there is no way to play a copied game on the PS3. Even the 360 still requires you to physically "chip" your console. @the disagrees, please reply, I look forward to seeing how you disagree with fact.
People are disagreeing with this statement simply because it is untrue and not a fact. It would be true to say that there is a particular drive in most of the newer 360s that have yet to be exploited, but most of the machines out there today can be modified without physically "chipping" it. there is also quite a scene for the PS3 releases as well, however I can not confirm if any of the images can actually be played off a burned blu-ray. the scene may simply be place holders until there is a real solution. I certainly hope that there is more protection on the PS3 other than just "Blu-ray media is expensive to buy".
Funny stuff m8.
I would wager, or even be so bold as to say that Sony has made it extremely tough,(nigh impossible), for console hackers and pirates to succeed on the PS3 platform, because unlike the PSP, Sony attacked the possibility of piracy on all fronts within the console...from the DRM on the Blu-ray discs, to the hardware, and software(Hypervisor, that sends random usage info) anti-piracy implementations, they even threw in firmware updates for overkill(to fill in future holes, that devs may leave), they seem to also have used a larger less viable(for piracy, due to size) format with blu-ray...all while actually using an on-die method(a core within the processor itself, which rules out using a modchip to circumvent security measures, without disabling the processor itself) to deter piracy, and hacking... So this makes the PS3 a very viable solution to console piracy, and possibly one that other console manufacturers will likely implement in future iterations(generations) in their own way.
Im really hoping its going to be good as i love the silent hill games but i have the same felling that its going to be awful.. Konami why?
hmmm.... well this isn't the best news for the developers, still I'm not sure this is the sort of thing that should grace N4G as we're doing nothing but promoting the torrent.
I have account on BitSoup and there is no any Silent Hill game or movie, just check this out. http://img84.imageshack.us/...
Why not browse to the Games/Xbox360 category instead? The search engine might be faulty.
I won't be getting this. Konami is banking on the fact that people still know and care about Silent Hill games. Origins didn't sell very well. Why would this? I LOVE Silent Hill games...but that doesn't mean I'll buy a crappy new one that nobody took time to write.
what in the hell are you basing your opinion off of that "no one took the time to write" when the game isn't even out yet?!
Ive checked aswell and cannot see the supposive file. I have both consoles and a PC, but I'm getting homecoming for the PS3 anyway, I have not pirated games since last gen, I fully support the developers and even if the game is bad I will still buy it, how ever I think it will be better than 4. :)
The Room started off pretty cool but got tedious when the backtracking kicked in. I liked the Hitchcock-esque view you had of your neighbors. Imo Silent Hll 2 is the best in the series.
I belive you have a BitSoup account but that is not where silent hill 5 is, the game is not a main sever engine. Its on a secure server. It just proves that Konami hasent learned anything with what happend to assassins creed. If they just cept this as a ps3 exclsive. They wouldent have has this F#cking problem at all. This is the same thing that will happen with Far Cry 2.
Even if 1/2 the people with a 360 pirated this game, it will still sell more than if it was a PS3 exclusive. More formats = more copies sold. So being a PS3 exclusive wouldn't improve this situation in the least.
So you're saying that had this been a PS3 exclusive, it would end up selling MORE total copies? Please explain.
That's bad... My advise is that no one download the illegal copy. That hurts the publisher, the industry and eventually us game players.
is it just me or is sh2 better looking than this piece of collective sh!t?
It's just you, you must be an idiot or something.
look up the screenshots dumba$$. sh2 on ps2 was graphically better than this multiplatform sh!t. anyway, whos gonna give a rats a$$ when we got siren to scare us sh!tless
I'm the dumbass? rofl So you're saying this: http://pclab.pl/zdjecia/art... looks better than this? : http://silenthill5.net/sile... You're a complete idiot.
yep thats what im saying. it does look better . trust me
It did have much better art direction. That's for sure.
You'll understand when the time comes.
Assassin's Creed sold over 2.5 million copies in less than 2 weeks. It was the fastest selling new IP ever when it was released. It has sold over 5 million copies(PC version not included) of which 3 million are on the 360. What is it you don't understand? Stop acting like a stubborn kid.
its unlikely the game leaked. even so, the game is not a big improvement over the last one. i rather play the psp version.
i wish noone from here would dlit regardless of temtations all we hurt is our chance at future games
