Silent Hill fans can go cry in a corner...

Recommended Posts

If that gaming rating is in fact genuine, that must mean something to do with the series will be revealed relatively soon. Provided it's not a hoax. And I don't think it is, though.

But I do believe in Dusk Golem. Let's see if the world ends up owing the man a huge apology by the time this is over.

Oh... WOW! 😊

 

Do you serious.....  Actually hang on a second:

 

That's better,...  Anyway, do you seriously think a major publisher would have a title in a hugely popular franchise would let development get to a point where the game is rating pending in one country and without even announcing it?  Are you frigging kidding me!?  When are you going wake up and smell the bullshit?!

I know that Konami aren't exactly famed for their common sense these days but their is no way even they wouldn't be de dumb enough keep a money in the bank project like this a secret, there would be trailers everywhere!   I can't.... sorry I gotta go again:

It's probably nothing, but who knows these days. If it's listed on a shop site, then there is a possible chance of it being real, since I don't think most shop sites would add a game just out of nowhere. 

But, I really don't want Konami making a Silent Hill game, their track record hasn't been great with the series, and I have a feeling they'll hurt it more than save it.

"Uniana" in Korea has been publishing games for Konami for years...

Their recent free to play soccer game got rated as well by the same publisher. So I do think it's a genuine certification.

So far, no-one on YouTube has really been iffy about this, and saying it's all BS.

It wouldn't be made by Team Silent either, which is a big deal because they made the first four, and best games. They've all moved on. I don't think they've had any involvement with Konami in years by this point.

In the case of Akira, they're just paying him to supposedly do the soundtrack. But he left Konami over 10 years ago, I think. Around the time Homecoming was released. The heavy metal band Korn did the music for the last one, Downpour

I don't know about Capcom, but they have their good and bad moments just like any other company. Although I do miss Shinji Mikami. Because admittedly, the games haven't been the same without his input.

I think the only way is to reform Team Silent and have them make Silent Hill again. They made the best SH games out of all of them SH 1-4. So just having Konami and some random development team make a new Silent Hill wouldn't be to my liking, at least. I know fans would want a good development team working on a new Silent Hill. I would like to see Kojima and team do a new Silent Hill, but that will never happen under Konami. 

Leaks need to be taken with a grain of salt. We need to stop automatically believing they are 100% true. Half the time you're probably going to get lies or fake news. Sometimes they're true, like with the recent GTA 6 leak, but most leaks are often hoaxes or fake or nothing of importance. 

As much as we'd love that, Konami is no longer in making videogames for us. They're far too busy making the next Castlevania Pachinko machine to be installed in some casino in Japan than put a capable team together and release quality games. As for leaks, I never usually take them seriously unless it comes from someone extremely reliable.

Let's assume this leak is genuine, which I'm not totally convinced it is. Considering the fact that this certification only seems to have been filed for Korea, it's likely to a product for that specific market.  Like a Patchinko machine or some other sort of arcade unit that is unlikely to see release outside of Asia. There is no way it's a main entry into the Silent Hill franchise because this marketing approach, by which mean not marketing it all, does make any sense even by their subterranean loony standards.

 

As for there be no YouTubers calling it out, my best guess is most bigger channels wouldn't consider this worth covering because it's not going to anywhere even if it's real.  If it turns out to just another asshole chasing clout it will damage their reputation.  Why risk getting egg on your face for nothing.

I say we should hang on a little longer. The Game Awards is happening in 3 months. 

At least give this tweet the benefit of the doubt until then. 2022 is winding down. So after the year is up, there will be no reason to care, or a reason to celebrate.

 

For fucks sake can you try to do something that clearly none of these people posting these tweets, articles and videos are doing and think about it!  These ratings are only applied after the publisher submits a presentation detailing all the content in the game.  In order to have enough content to make this presentation the game would have to exist as at least as a fully assembled Beta.  So unless Konami have decided to sit on this for the last 2 - 3 years without announcing or doing any kind of promotional work a all, there is no way that development is far down the road yet.  It just doesn't add up!

 

I'd be happy if this turned out to be a full console and PC release, I'd be be glad to be wrong.  I'm telling you if "Silent Hill: The Short Message" is real, it's a Pachinko machine, arcade or maybe a mobile game at best.

 

Another thing, if this is a console and PC release of the next main entry in the Silent Hill franchise, I find it very unlikely to be announced at the VGA's.  I don't know how much of the history between the VGA's/Geoff Keighley and Konami your aware of, but let's just say not exactly tight.
