GamesCom 2011: Silent Hill Downpour Developers Not Missing Yamaoka

Akira Yamaoka's audio has been a key component of Silent Hill franchise for the past ten years or so

But Vatra Games' Brian Gomez does not think the absence of the series legendary composer will have too much of an impact on his studio's upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour. "I was worried when we lost him, we lost him really early on in Downpour. But I was a big fan of Dexter already, so I'm happy..

News: Zavvi's Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection Is Oh So Tempting

Zavvi's Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection Is Oh So Tempting

To be fair, the easiest way to complete Konami's Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is to add in MGS4 and a copy of the original PlayStation classic

You can make the package sweeter by tossing it all in a steel tin and saying, "Seventy quid, please." And that's pretty much exactly what Zavvi has done. The Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection is limited to just 4,000 copies worldwide, and..

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Includes MGS3 'Subsistence', Regional Differences

Those picking up the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in Japan or the West will find one major difference

In Japan you'll get a download code for the original Metal Gear Solid title, while in the West you'll get an HD remake of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. We think that's a fair trade. (Right, Japan?) Thankfully, both regional variants will come with Metal Gear Solid 3 'Subsistence', meaning the..

Silent Hill: Downpour Certainly Looks The Part

We're still a touch concerned about Silent Hill: Downpour -- it's in development at an unknown studio and we've still seen very little of the game

But one thing we have seen are a host of glorious screenshots, and while they don't reveal much about the game's narrative or mechanics, they at least conclude that the game is looking super pretty. Check out the lighting in the screenshot above — it's..

Kojima To Take Advantage Of 'Transfarring' Technology For All Future Games

Kojima has a dream in which all of his future games will be playable on the move or at home

PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita make that dream a reality. In fact, Kojima is so excited by the possibility that he's created his own terminology for the technology: transfarring. Speaking on the most recent Kojima Productions podcast, the visionary revealed that every single one of his future titles,..

Silent Hill Collection To Launch Exclusively On PlayStation 3 This Fall

Konami's released a snippet of new information about its upcoming Silent Hill Collection compilation for PlayStation 3

First of all, it will launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 this Fall. Konami's not ruling out other platforms entirely, but the title will be exclusive "for now". The publisher cited the series long established alliance with the PlayStation platform. The Collection will..

When We Think Of Silent Hill, We Don't Necessarily Think Of Korn

Konami's released a double-barrel of information regarding its upcoming survival horror title, Silent Hill: Downpur

The first is not so offensive; Downpour will include full support for stereoscopic 3D televisions, potentially enhancing the game's gloomy, psychological experience. The second announcement is pretty disappointing for Silent Hill fans though. Korn's releasing a song for the game's..

Silent Hill: Book Of Memories To Include Multiplayer

Konami has confirmed that the upcoming PlayStation Vita exclusive, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories, will be the first title in the survival horror franchise to feature online multiplayer

Fluid puzzler drops in

A water-based puzzle game with motion controls will sound familiar to readers of our sister site Nintendo Life, as last year saw the excellent Fluidity/Hydroventure on WiiWare.

You Know You're In Trouble When It Starts Raining In Silent Hill: Downpour

Konami's released its launch trailer for Silent Hill: Downpour

The Vatra Games developed PlayStation 3 sequel is due for release in the Winter, which we're assuming means early next year. Some of the audio design in this trailer is great — Vatra seem to understand the psychological nature of the franchise. A prisoned protagonist certainly opens up plenty of potential for exploration. If Vatra can..

Silent Hill: Book Of Memories Announced For NGP, No Other Details

Just to underline the real lack of content at Konami's pre-E3 press conference, the publisher announced Silent Hill: Book Of Memories for NGP

"Fantastic," you might be saying, "Tell me more." Well, err, there's nothing more to tell. The announcement came with a big fat logo stating the game was not "concept approved" by Sony yet. It will be in due time, but we imagine..

Co-operative vampire hunter reunion, Castlevania: Harmony Of Despair, is coming to the PlayStation 3 after a period of exclusivity on the XBOX 360

That's according to Siliconera, which cites "two different sources" for its story. The multiplayer spin-off commanded mixed reaction on the XBOX, settling with a reasonable (but hardly outstanding) Metacritic of 67. Expect this announcement at..

Kojima Posts Mysterious Image On Twitter, Says He's Not Going To E3

Ah Hideo Kojima

We like to imagine his life is just as complex and convoluted as a good Metal Gear Solid narrative. The video game visionary has posted an image on Twitter alongside a statement that he is recording for his new project. The image shows two monitors with an unclear figure on the screen. What does it all mean? We'll let someone else get to the bottom of that. Kojima followed up the..
