I know i'm pretty late but just heard Silent Hills got cancelled such a bummer and I was looking forward to a next gen horror game, especially playing as Norman Reedus from the walking dead. It was fun while it lasted RIP Silent Hills.

I'm not too bothered by it personally- not really a SH fan. It's the whole Kojima/Konami situation that gets me down a bit.
As a big MG fan I worry about the series' fate- I just hope they don't quickly finish up development on Phantom Pain and throw it out semi-complete.

Its sad to see Konami head to a sega-ish slow death as a software company.

Yeah, I understand you when you brought it up. I've played several MGS titles and Phantom Pain is a game that should not disappoint especially with the lead up from Ground Zeros. Im hoping for that game to have a good release.

Yeah, a lot of people are in the same boat. Konami is screwing up.

Yeah, it really sucks, the demo looked amazing. Also as a big Guillermo Del Toro fan, i'm extra disappointed, will the poor guy ever get to make a game? I think that Silent Hills would have been a real shot in the arm to the horror genre in gaming.

If the game is say 1/2 done, Konami will in all likelihood sell the rights to the unfinished game. I don't think they'll have a problem finding a buyer.

The petition won't change anything.
From what I've been able to gather, Konami's contract with Kojima (who owns the FOX Engine) ends after The Phantom Pain.
That game engine is what SH is based on.
Konami will not be renewing their contract because they found that focusing on gambling machines in japan makes their company way more money, so they will no longer be making video games.

So the only way SH can be continued is if a new publisher picks it up.
Because Konami sucks.

I agree it probably won't get Silent Hills made. Although I see it as letting Kojima and Del Toro know we want them to work together on a horror game. I know that any chance of them actually doing anything from this petition is extremely slim, but it's more chance than doing nothing.

I would be more disappointed if I actually knew more about what Silent Hills was going to be. It's hard to get sad/angry/etc. over something that was basically just a name. Not only that, but we've had a string of SH games that have had the SH name but haven't exactly been great. Sure PT was interesting but it was just a teaser and I'm pretty sure they said it wasn't necessarily going to be representative of the actual Hills game. I also couldn't see a whole game made using just what we saw in PT anyway. I guess I just haven't been drinking the Kojima Kool-Aid enough to get excited purely based on the fact that his name was attached to the project.

Anyway, I'm personally a lot more concerned about Konami in general. Outside of just SH, they've got a handful of other great IPs that they are doing absolutely nothing with. Right back to the NES they'd always been one of my go-to companies where you knew the games were going to be solid. Now? They not only may as well not exist but it seems like they are actively working to destroy themselves.

I have played all silent hill games to date and after I tried the P.T. I was hooked on the idea of Silent Hills and that the series was actually going to be scary for once.

After the debacle with Kojima and Konami, I felt really let down, I was hoping so much for a game that actually scared me.
Then again, Konami seems to be leaving the gaming industry to focus solely on the pachinko or gamibling aspect since in the last few years, it brought in most of their companies profit.
