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

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

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..

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..

Raiden Voice-Actor 'Completely In The Dark' Regarding Upcoming Raiden-Focused Metal Gear Solid Game

Something fishy is afoot

Metal Gear Solid: Rising is all about series-punchbag-come-series-badass Raiden. But the character's voice actor doesn't know a thing about the game. “I am completely in the dark. I have no answers. I have no idea,” a flustered Quinton Flynn told TheGamingLiberty in an interview, explaining that he'd not been contacted by Konami nor Kojima Productions about the game. “I..

Unsurprisingly, Silent Hill: Downpour Has Lots Of Rain In It

We sure that we're not the only people that adore rain in video games

The moment we hear the spattering of rain-drops, our eyes light up. We're not really sure why, but there's something wicked about games that take place in the rain, right? As you'd expect, Konami's upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour has a big emphasis on rain. As a celebration for reaching a Facebook follower milestone, the publisher..

Konami Announces Pro Evolution Soccer 2012, Producer 'Seabass' Talks Changes

As if there was any doubt that it wasn't going to happen, Konami has officially announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 this morning

The first footage (embedded above) is sandwiched between a little featurette with producer Shingo “Seabass” Takatsuka explaining what's been improved in this year's game. We'd love to get all technical about the changes, but some of them fly right over our head. It's..
