VG247 understands that UK developer Climax is working on a Wii remake of an the first Silent Hill. Konami has declined to comment on the talk. Few specifics are known as yet, but apparently motion control's been included for torch functions.
I see the usual troll is here to make some comment that has nothing to do with the article.. Anyway ignoring the trolls, this is great. I now know not to even bother with this game. Built for the weak PSP, plus it is a remake of an old game. I'll pass. But I am sure when the game bombs it will be because the Wii is a casual console not because Wii owners dont want 7 year old ports rebuilt for gimped handhelds and just thrown on Wii as an after thought.
Uhhh...this has nothing to do with the PSP at all. It's a remake of the Original Silent Hill from the PS1, to my knowledge that never ended up on the PSP...
This has nothing to do with the PSP mate. And besides, this is great news if true. Being able to point the torch/gun with the Wiimote and having the radio static build up via the remotes' speaker will only add to the atmosphere. It worked for Resi 4 Wii...
"The remake is the Wii and PSP project you can see there." It's coming to PSP as well. Hence why it's in the PSP channel. Pay attention folks!
Don't do it Konami! Make it for PSN! Just clean it up a lil I'll buy it I swear!
Now i love Silent Hill but WHY would you remake the game for the Wii? The game needs a Next-Gen remake like Capcom did with Resident Evil on the Gamecube. Having a game where you have to flail your arms around when you are supposed to be scared will make the game lose any Survival Horror element.
just stfu, seriously.
Hes completely right. It needs to be made for the PS360. So you stfu, seriously.
I agree with reibooi. Putting it on a true next-gen system would create a truly haunting atmosphere that wouldn't be capable on the wii. But that would be too expensive, which is why they put it on the wii.
a nintendo console hasnt got a single silent hill game yet and so its about time at least wii get one. why dont you play with that crap silent hill 5 game on the so called next generation systems you loser.
I'd prefer it for the ps2 and it would be great if it were $30
A lot of third party companies are making good money out of porting old games into the wee just by adding motion sensing controls. I'm sorry if I offend anybody but the Wii is NOT a next gen console (the ports of so many old games is the proof). It's a step backwards in technology. When you release the same system twice (Game Cube) just with a few changes on interface; that's cheating the consumer. Why not releasing a console with the power of the 360 or PS3 with the motion sensing interface?
if nintendo were to do that, then the launch price of the wiiwouldn't be £180 or $250 it would have been somewhere like £300 or $350 and so therefore no doubt we will not be seeing 50 million wiis sold already. at the end of the day, its just business and for nintendo, they simply got it spot on.
that you can call the wii "not next gen" and no one cares but if i say that the ps3 and 360 have great gameplay too in a wii article then i lose a bubble i dont care about your comment because it doesnt offend me but i just find the bubble system flawed. but game on bro on whatever system you have
Screw thw Wii, a ps3/360 remake is what people want. Most wii players won't touch this game or even know what silent hill is. Im really starting to hate the Wii.
On any system (I bought them all, hehe) Just as long as it takes the bad taste that Homecoming left in my mouth. It was average at best. It just didn't have that special touch - Of course, this is just my opinion :)
SO psxextreme says a remake for sh for the psp but n4g says remake for the wii who to believe
the last silent hill 5 looked pretty bad already, which I forced myself to play. I am just worried about the design cause I didn't like their half ass designs in SHH where they looked like lifeless models. Man I rather they not remake the original one because they will just make themselves look stupid. SHH was a stripped down version of the SH series due to the lack of emotions in the character, and I just have a feeling they're going to the same thing for the original. you see, being a fan can be a bad thing and i just don't like how the team says they know all about silent hill just cause they're fans cause that's just BS. Konami! Why don't you hire people that are not fans of the series to make the game?
Who the f**k is moderating this comments? How was my comment spam? It was related to the article and not a ignorant complaint. N4G, u suck more and more very day.
PSP and Wii? That's an odd combo. Although bringing up SH reminds me...why haven't they tried porting SH: The Arcade? Seems a perfect fit for the Wii.
i hope they do it on the ps3 and 360 that would rock!!
