.. Well, kudos to Konami for supporting their game we suppose. We'd forgotten Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots even had an online component, but here's a new patch for that very mode. The update's able to detect "fraudulent" connections which may slow the game down. Of course, the bigger question is whether anyone's actually still playing Metal Gear Online. Konami patch notes:..
Hideo Kojima, ever the tease, has started Tweeting about something he's deeming the "devil project"
We've absolutely no idea what it is, but we've included a series of messages from the Metal Gear mastermind for your convenience: Have to give priority to another lines scenario etc., so now I cannot work on the devil project and writing. Worked on my devil project a bit after..
Probably not, right
You have? Uh-huh. That's a bit weird. Anyway. Konami wants to see your very best "spine chilling sculpture" as part of a Silent Hill: Downpour contest on Facebook. The winning tombstone will get rendered into the final game. Which is pretty awesome. Konami will pick its six favourite sculptures on February 10th and open the competition up to public voting. Good luck if..

Consider us cautiously optimistic for Silent Hill: Downpour
We're big fans of the franchise and horror games in general, but unfortunately the series has taken a turn for rubbish in recent years. Silent Hill: Downpour appears to be heading in the right direction though. We think. Maybe. Hopefully. (Please be good.) Konami's officially confirmed the game this morning, tagging an autumn release on..
A high-definition remake of the original Metal Gear Solid trilogy is coming to PlayStation 3 if reports in Official PlayStation Magazine are to be believed
The magazine cites "insider whispers" as the source for the story, stating that the "first three" Metal Gear Solid games are set to be reborn on the PlayStation 3. It would be a monumental release for the PS3, especially if..
Konami's been teasing Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's first DLC pack, "Reverie", for a while now on the game's Facebook page
The site teases: Tick tock Its time for another glimpse into the upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Reverie DLC. What might Gabriel try to change with this time machine? As is the case for all of Lords Of Shadow, the artwork's yummy.
What does the "Next Generation Metal Gear Solid Series" entail anyway? Is it a PlayStation 4 title, or is it just a franchise reboot on current platforms? We've no idea, but a series of job listings on Konami's website mention the phrase
The job-listings are plenty, seeking planners, level designers, scripters and more. Kojima Productions are currently working on Metal Gear Solid: Rising for..
It's been a while since we got word on Vatra Games' upcoming entry into the Silent Hill franchise
The game was announced and trailered at last year's E3, but Konami's been notably quiet about the horror title since then. Thankfully GameInformer's broken the silence, announcing the game's official name: Silent Hill: Downpour. Apparently the game's set on the outskirts of Silent Hill and includes a..
PS3 title on the way
DanceDanceRevolution has been out in North America for a while now, but European fans of the dancing series were clueless as to when or if the game would make its way to the continent. Until now, that is, with Konami renaming the game DanceDanceRevolution New Moves and bringing it over in March 2011. Coming to the continent with...
To remind everyone that the stupidly stylish No More Heroes is coming to PlayStation 3, Konami's released a batch of new screenshots of the Nintendo Wii port
The HD update's due in the West this year with added PlayStation Move controls. There are more screens through here.</em>
All bases covered
Konami recently released a batch of new screenshots for the upcoming Move-compatible port of No More Heroes: Heroes's Paradise, Grasshopper Manufacture's ode to otaku everywhere, and the game is shaping up very nicely indeed. The story of Travis Touchdown's attempt to rise to number one in the assassin league, the PS3 port will be...
Metal Gear Solid: Rising was originally due next year
Unfortunately, that's no longer the case. Kotaku reports that the game's been pushed back into 2012. The multiplatform title replaces Metal Gear Solid's traditional "Tactical Espionage Action" for a new breed of "Lightning Bolt Action" fronted by the game's protagonist, Raiden. The hook is the game's "precision..
Metal Gear Solid 4 pre-dated trophies
Given its status as one of the best games in the PlayStation 3's library, many fans have been clamouring for a trophy update ever since Sony announced the rewards system. Despite frequent reports to the contrary, Metal Gear Solid 4 has never received trophies. That could be about to change. PlayStation LifeStyle's snapped a photo of the Greatest Hits edition of..
Konami announced months ago that they'd picked up the publishing rights to the HD Wii port No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise, and were planning to bring the title to Europe with PlayStation Move support
The publishers finally announced that the game's coming to North America too — as a PlayStation 3 exclusive. For those unfamiliar, No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise is an HD version of the original..
Travis touches down
The official US PlayStation blog gets plenty scoops – it is the official PlayStation blog after all – but not always. Cast your minds back to the early days of Movemodo – our first day of operation, in fact. We brought you news that Konami was bringing No More Heroes to PlayStation 3, and today Konami has announced it's...
There's an issue in the PlayStation 3 version of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
Some users have reported a problem in which save data gets corrupted. The game asks you to hit the X button to "overwrite" and bam, just like that your save is gone. But Konami's on the problem. The publisher reassured fans that "a patch for the PS3 save issue affecting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is..
According to a report on Eurogamer Spain, MercurySteam's already talking about a follow-up to Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow
The soundtrack composer for the first game has told Spanish radio: If you liked the first , hope that the second is even more spectacular. We're going to assume it's already in the early stages of development. The engine's in place, yo. Sequel is good to go.
Konami's cult X-Men six-player arcade brawler is heading to the PlayStation Network
The game was announced during Marvel Games' panel at the New York Comic-Con event. The game will be ported to the PSN by Konami and will achieve its six-player cap via online multiplayer. There's no price or date information yet, but we expect more to follow over the coming months.
It struck us pretty early on, that we're going to be way more engrossed in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's story than its gameplay
From a narrative perspective, the game's cinematics and voice-acting are top-notch. Even the dark, European gothic style is inviting. But the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the presentation's precedent. The demo opens with a medieval town eclipsed in a tropical storm..
