Did Konami Send a Secret Patch to Break P.T. From Being Played?

P.T. Made With PS1 Graphics Is Still Frightening

If you’re not familiar with what P.T. is, a quick history lesson. This was a small demo game that was released for the PS4 that served as a jump-scare teaser for what would eventually turn into Silent Hills. As we all know, that never came to be for various reasons we know and we’re sure […]

P.T. Refuses To Get Made As Game Inspired By The Title Is Cancelled

Allison Road was meant to pick up the slack when P.T. when cancelled by Konami.

It was looking pretty great to boot. Sadly, it seems like […]

Kojima Asked The Gears Of War Creator To Work On Silent Hills

There aren’t too many ‘household’ names in game development. That comes down to the massive teams that make a game, a lack of personalities and, well a lot of other reasons.

Del Toro Says Silent Hills Took Inspiration From The Last Of Us

Silent Hills will likely remain a mythical game, lost to industry politics and left for gamers in future generations to mourn. It seems we never will know quite how the game was going to turn out. I do, however expect we will find out more about the project as time goes on and details slip. […]

Xbox Boss Denies That Silent Hills Is Coming To Xbox One

It was so obvious that these rumours were untrue, that it almost seems disingenuous to say, “I told you so”.

Updated: Insane Report Says Microsoft Are Buying Silent Hills To Save It

Look, I’m going to start this story by saying that I don’t believe any of it. But, it’s being picked up by a lot of outlets and it’s a fun bit of speculation, so let’s roll with it for now. RoosterTeeth are claiming to have received reports from a source that Microsoft are going to […]

Del Toro Opens Up About His Disappointment With Silent Hills Cancellation

For a game that has been cancelled, I seem to be writing a lot about Silent Hills of late. The way Konami are treating it and co-creative Hideo Kojima is hard not to talk about though.

Silent Hills Revival Petition Has 50,000 Signatures Already

When Silent Hills was cancelled last week, I’m sure just about everyone was disappointed. Seeing a Silent Hill game designed by Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima would be quite something.

We learnt today that the Silent Hills teaser, PT is being pulled from the PlayStation Network. That put the already dodgy future of the game into question even further.

PT Is Getting Pulled From PlayStation Network

Konami have been in a bit of a rough patch of late. The drama that surrounded Hideo Kojima‘s departure is still shrouded in mystery and there have been several instances of the publisher retroactively taking his name off projects he’s worked on.

New Fan Made Silent Hill Mod Nails The All-Important Tone

Silent Hill is one of my all time favorite game series, easily taking the my title for the best horror franchises out there. Or rather, what Silent Hill can be takes my title for the best horror franchises out there. The series has lost its way in that last half decade or so, but the […]
