Is it alive?
Wow... if Sony manage to get Silent Hills exclusive for PS5, that would be a huge ultra sonic killer move. Can't wait for the PS5 reveal my God!
so why is this being exclusive a good thing now? So less people can enjoy it?
it was always going to be a playstation exclusive so what is your point exactly? just get a playstation and play all of their great games if you really feel that way
If it’s released as an exclusive Sony give the developers freedom to produce something that’s really amazing. Microsoft always stick their big oar in. It frustrates developers that why Bungie did one!
Better less people than nobody. It really depends if this is the only way the game is getting made.
@zackeroniii - I have a PS4 Pro, thanks. Just funny how people get so upset when Nintendo has Bayonetta, or MS has Hellblade. Heaven forbid those are bad things and less people get to enjoy those games. But when Sony does it, hooray for the good guys. Which way is it guys? This isn't a 1st party studio game here guys.
If sony bought konami IPs gg no re.
Even if they did revive it, without Kojima, I don't think I would be excited for it. It would just be a case of Konami trying to cash in on something 'people wanted' without it actually being the thing people wanted.
Well, Keiichiro Toyama, creator of the original Silent Hill, works for Sony's Japan Studio. He also created Siren and Gravity Rush. I have faith in the team they're gonna put together especially since this game is supposed to have the biggest budget Toyama's ever worked with. He's known for purposefully using the least amount of resources possible to make his games and they've all turned out pretty great (and particularly not very well selling, but the low cost of the games makes up for that and they actually made money).
How do you know If true kojima isn't involved?
I don't think there's any way in hell Kojima works with Konami again.
@Corndog But he will probably work with Sony. Really depends how this deal goes down if it's true.
No. If Konami was willing to spend a massive amount to make this game (even with Sonys help) they would have been creating more/other content. Now, Sony could maybe get the rights to the IP and do it themselves, but I don’t believe Konami would have any real part of it. Besides, would anyone really get excited about a Konami developed game at the is point?
I see the same maybe Sony sign a publishing deal that way Konami get to keep the IP and Sony will have control of game publishing for that IP for their console I know it's far fetched and most rumors turn out to be just made up but could you imagine the impact of at reveal of ps5 Sony were to announce PT with kojima behind it and MGS remake done by bluepoint games. Not saying those will be available at launch just the announcements alone with create so much momentum
It’s not that it’s impossible, it just unlikely. Though, at this point I do wonder why Konami is even holding on to those IPs, unless they plan to just occasionally dip into the video game market every now and then, or go into mobile. You would think they could make a decent amount bidding out those IPs to any major console developer or god forbid an EA or Activision publisher.
MGS4 Remake on PS5...OMG!
This basically happened for Street Fighter V. The director consistently said capcom didn't want to make it but Sony fronted a whole lot of money to make it happen. That's why it's exclusive. Rumours are Sony has been a driving force behind the crash remasters, monster Hunter World, re7 and re2 and ff7 remake. that's why they're either timed exclusive or have heavy Sony marketing. Probably a similar thing is happening with silent hills. Either a SFV situation or a FF7 remake situation
If Sony is developing it and paying for (marketing, production, etc), then it’s more probable. Personally if it’s just a timed exclusive where Sony is pitching in for the marketing and production but not necessarily the development, my enthusiasm for Konami developed (anything) is not exactly sky high.
Maybe Konami is desperate to save their name this time and just for this game they will hold off their corporate demon practices.
fong believe it or not konami makes a lot of money LOL without making games
They still make (a lot) of money through digital/mobile gaming, it’s actually their highest performing sector (Yu-Gi-Oh, mobile baseball, and, Pro winning soccer). I’m just curious about what they want/plan to do with multimillion dollar IPs in Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Silent Hill. Personally I’d like a 2-d Castlevania at some point again.
Well if they keep the IPs they can always use them in other products or they can always license them out. Example: https://www.relyonhorror.co...
True and they’ve had some decent/ok success at that at least in the entertainment industry with the Castlevania Netflix series and the Silent Hill films. But do those IPs say on Pachinko machines make them more attractive to potential users? I’d be interested to see.
Many pachinko machines in Japan are based of games and anime. It at least makes it something familiar to fans of those IPs and can attract some people to them.
Interesting, I did not know that. Haven’t been over there in a few long time. Well then it maybe would make sense for them to keep those IPs if they plan to keep increasing that part of product line.
A new SH game would be great it could wipe Downpour and Shattered Memories from my mind. The demand is there Konami knows it but they're to blind in pachinko machines to realize that. It would be great if Konami sold the franchise to someone who can utilize it and make SH great again. If Sony bought up the franchise they have great in house studios that can make a really great game. All though I would be interested to see what Kojima does with the franchise if Sony ever bought it. I want the SH5 rumor to be true I am dying for a new SH game I never got into the franchise until I got SH2 free in a $10 Xbox and it is a great game. I turned around and bought the SH HD Collection for PS3 yeah it has its bugs and people take shots at it but I enjoyed SH3 saved me some cash the PS2 port is too damn expensive.
Downpour and shattered mind was quite good, not perfect, but good
SH is my absolute favorite horror title. Nothing compares. Let’s all hope this is the truth
If only we could get both a new Silent Hill and a new Fatal Frame.
Well Sony would not get a new Fatal Frame. Nintendo has exclusive rights to every future entry and that started with IV.
You’ll have things like this get posted on this site while things like this get passed over. https://primagames.com/news... https://www.somagnews.com/c... https://www.thegamer.com/ru... https://gamerant.com/rumor-... Even tho it’s all rumors...the ones in recent news leaning towards Microsoft have more substance over a photo that somehow is bringing up rumors prior to the ones above that mainly still sounded like Konami and Sony were still in talks with a little bit of what if fairy tales sprinkled on top. Lol N4G
Yep that's N4G for ya. Anything that is positive about Microsoft with rumors would be denied most times while with Sony it will be instantly accepted. It clearly shows a bias on what is approved and what's not. Hell, anything that is negative or critical about Sony is usually denied as well but if it's about Microsoft, it will 9/10 times be approved. I wished N4G was equal with both sides in regards to Sony and Microsoft, but I feel that will never happen as alot of moderators/staff are run by die-hard Sony fans and anti-Microsoft fans.
You can approve and report any post you like, you can also submit your own......
@IRetrouk ah, didn't know that. So I guess it's just majority of the community then that may be biased. Still doesn't change anything though about how biased this site is.
Neither the mods or community is biased lol, the mods do plenty to keep stuff fair around here, might not always agree with their decisions but that's life🤷♂️ there may be more sony fans on here right now, but that's understandable considering there at over 100 million sold, to blame them is a bit disingenuous when you can actually change what's being posted, plus this site has went back and forth between (mainly 2) fan bases for years, if you dont like what's approved then approve some stuff you do, or better yet, submit some, maybe then you will see the site with new eyes.
I guess you miss all the articles praising Microsoft as of late. And also downplaying PS5. There is literally an article talking about how XSX is gonna blow PS5 BC.right now
So even if it's fairy tales, it's not fair because MS isn't forced into the conversation?
More along the lines of in any other article folks On this website can find info and articles posted from 2001 to try and make their point yet for this one the MANY articles that actually far outweigh the Sony rumors just by a google search is conveniently overlooked lol Hypocrisy lol read above... I fail to believe they just don’t know and are actually rolling with it valiantly and if it does happen in MSs favor the flip flopping will be monumental.. yet predictable. PlayStation fans have been like a book lately.
@Beyond the circle MS fans are just as easy to read, and less interesting. Those rumors didn't start until after the Sony and Silent Hills rumors.
I'd rather Sony got those IPs as opposed to MS. Sony has more history with those IPs and what can I say, their creative outlook/ or output is lot more appealing than MS. I don't mean to diss MS, but it's simply an impression of theirs I have that doesn't make me confident in their ability to do well with these IPs.
Lol right because we’ve seen Microsoft’s creative outlook. Read the articles. Microsoft will be able to hire the folks who’ve actually developed Konami IP. But this perspective is kinda what I expected “I don’t want it to be true” because *insert nonsense here*
Sony has track record for more diverse and high quality output and that's a fact, MS does not, not to that degree. Their rep for exclusive games is monotonous at best, multiplat games don't count. Sony has more credibility here.
Because you are not aware that rumors from anonymous sources are not allowed on N4G. Here is the source of the rumors about Microsoft buying all those ips from Konami. PasteBin: https://pastebin.com/B5G7LR... As for this rumor here is the source. "Suehiro Maruo, known for his work on various horror Mangas, posted the following to his Tumblr and Instagram with a caption reading: "Afternoon invitations hope you'll join in." " And he's actually a real person. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/... Here is the link to N4Gs policies on anonymous sources. https://n4g.com/user/blogpo...
How does a guy showing a picture point forwards the title of this on N4G? How does it back up the PlayStation rumors that came from an anonymous source also prior to the articles more current and being reported on by more websites from another anonymous source? So basically the title on n4g should be “Silent Hills Xbox/Ps5 rumors are brought back from the dead” So what are we going on about here? A real person drew some art? Damn PlayStation must be buying Silent Hill! .... haha One anon source vs another anon source gets to wear the crown by some guys art show in Japan!
"How does it back up the PlayStation rumors that came from an anonymous source also prior to the ones current and being reported on by more websites from another anonymous source?" https://n4g.com/news/233217... That rumor was failed for the same reason as the PasteBin that claims that Microsoft bought all of Konamis IPs. Also he didn't just draw some art. "So, what could this mean? We think it's pretty clear that Maruo was visiting Konami for an unknown reason, but the Silent Hills image itself?" Doesn't mean that Silent Hill is going to be a PS5 exclusive but it does hint that something may be happening with the franchise in the future. But for all I know maybe this artist was just creating new art for some Silent Hill pachinko machines. The only thing that I don't understand is that since your a contributor you could have reported the article through the proper channels. But the only thing you did was vent yourself in the comment section and complain about other rumors that were failed. I did you a favor by reporting the article BTW. The mods will decide if the sites policies allow something like this to be approved. If you don't report these things it will go unnoticed. The mods don't have the time to inspect every single article that's approved.
Cool so both failed rumors lol.. *Reads title of this current article* What happened in those failed articles that makes a guys photo shoot point towards “Ps5 rumors brought from the dead” I understand you tho.. I should make an article with this guys photo show and title it “Xbox Silent Hills rumors brought back from the dead” It holds as much validity as this one and is basically under the same exact circumstances with one anonymous rumore having a little more weight to it. I got it lol I see how n4g works thanks .
https://www.resetera.com/th... "It holds as much validity as this one and is basically under the same exact circumstances with one anonymous rumore having a little more weight to it." I would say look at the source. Random PasteBin VS Moderator on Resetera I personally don't believe that Resetera would let one of their moderators spread BS on their site because that would very bad for the site. Also getting the rights to make one game seems more believable to me than a company buying all the IPs from Konami. Just my opinion. Edit: Will also add that anyone can add almost anything to PasteBin.
Also interesting from Resetera. https://www.resetera.com/th... Gives it alot more credibility than that random PasteBin. But we will have to wait and see if it's true.
What IRetrouk said, but also the rumors about Sony buying Konami ips were first; somewhere in early to mid March. Those were probably approved because of the excitement around Kojima being involved, not strictly because N4G is biased toward Sony. There were also multiple articles about a possible acquisition by Sony over multiple days, these 4 articles all use the same info and source and we're published in less than 48 hours. Plus I think maybe no one was excited about a Microsoft acquisition of Silent Hill or other Konami ips because there was no inclusion of any participation by Kojima, and the rumor is less believable from a business stand point as the biggest Konami ips have never been all that popular on Xbox, where as metal gear and to some degree silent Hill have been system sellers for Sony. So the rumor about it Microsoft shelling out dumptrucks full of money to purchase ips that they themselves know will never recoup what was spent to by them seems a bit unbelievable. But hey if I am wrong I give you my solemn word that if Microsoft purchases Konami's ips and actually make games that aren't trash with them, I'll finally buy a Microsoft console. And I will publicly apologize for not believing in a Sony biased N4G.
I'd have a much easier time believing it if I believed that there was any kind of game development going on at Konami whatsoever.
Silent hill ps5 exclusive only
I don’t get this article I know there was rumor about silent on ps5 but got debunked by Konami this time nothing being said about silent hill on ps5 they just showed us silent hill that’s it
https://www.gamesradar.com/... "In a new email to Rely on Horror, a Konami representative said: "We're aware of all the rumors and reports but can confirm that they are not true. I know it's not the answer your fans may want to hear." This representative later clarified that "it's not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in the way it is being reported." " This is the part where their response gets a little weird. "it's not to say we are completely closing the door on the franchise, just not in the way it is being reported." So they are not exactly saying it's 100% false. Just that it's not happening the way the rumor claims. Whatever that means.
I never was interested in the Silent Hill games though if the Kojima directed one would have been developed I would have finally bought a SH game because I enjoyed P.T. If this is true good for Sony for acquiring more ammunition in their arsenal.
Well if they can work out a Spidey MCU deal I am confident they can pull this miracle too, really want Silent Hills to be released! Hopefully Kojima is working on it
But what about the rumor of Microsoft buying Konami? I'm so confused now. Really hope silent hill will be a sony game because it is where it belongs.
As much as I would love this game to release some day am not frying my hopes up
These rumors are becoming more and more persistent. I'm starting to think there is some real truth here.
I’m all for it. As long as they keep the formula the same. Not take the resident evil route and make it a more action then horror type of game.
Can't trust sony for many reasons, the biggest one is of course we can't trust them to get a sequel after they will launch the 1st one , there are exclusives that didn't get a chance from sony to get a sequel , this is the worst side of sony since the beginning of their business.
Well Spiderman is getting a sequel. I guess if Silent Hill is popular enough they would make a sequel in a heart beat. But then again sometimes flops like Knack get second chances and Media Molecule was allowed to develop dreams for the longest times. I guess it all depends on the type of games that your looking at. But Silent Hill isn't owned by Sony to my knowledge.
