That would be great but I'm sure there is SO much bad blood that Kojima may never be able to play in his universe again! :(

The Boss's words from MGS3 have become realistic in a meta way.

"Politics determine who you face on the battlefield. And politics are a living thing. They change along with the times. Yesterday's good might be tomorrow's evil."

The politics of the gaming industry has turned Konami from one of the most cherished publishers to one of its most despised over time for its misuse of its own IP.

I'll never forget finishing Super Contra on SNES and the game telling me to finish it in hard mode to see the teu ending.

I couldn't even get past the first stage in hard mode.

That's when i knew Konami hated gamers.

Nintendo should buy Contra, life force and castlevania.

Lol, it would be nice to see anything new from those feanchises.

I'd like a new Snatcher and Goemon. If Konami wants to start using the Hudson Soft games then I'd like to see a new Bloody Roar.

I only played Primal Fury but I was hooked on that game for a long time. A new entry would be appreciated.

Relientk772273d ago

Seeing a new Goemon would be great

I beg Konami to sell Silent Hill to Sony if they are just making pachinko machines for it from here on.

No reason for Konami to sell an IP that they can profit off of.

Besides Sony already owns the Siren series, a franchise made by the creator of Silent Hill.
