Get your pointy sticks out
Will we ever get to experience the twisted narrative of Silent Hill 2 again? It feels like everytime we get a taste for the Silent Hill HD Collection's impending release, Konami shoves it out of sight
The compilation — which collates HD versions of both Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 — was scheduled to release on January 24th, after the game previously missed its November release date. Now..
One of the saddest thing to emerge this generation has been the decline in diversity
With development budgets spiralling, pushed publishers are stuck to working with what they know in order to avoid facing commercial disaster. That's meant that outside of the emerging download platforms, there's been very little experimentation in the retail space. We can point to a handful of imaginative titles..
Hideo Kojima's next game -- the mysterious Project Ogre -- will be an open world title according to the creator himself
In a candid chat with CNN, the Kojima Productions boss revealed that he's eager to make something very free" after spending years on the cinematic Metal Gear Solid series. The kind of game Im making is some game that has a very wide entrance, a very open entrance, he..
Hideo Kojima's being Hideo Kojima again
The cryptic gaming visionary has casually dropped a couple of screenshots showing off the developer's new Fox Engine — one of which is apparently from a prototype of his upcoming game, Project Ogre. The first image shows a crouching soldier, while the second focuses on a couple of ladies. We're hoping Project Ogre pertains to the second image rather than..
For as long as there have been video games, fans have demanded Zone Of The Enders 3
Alright, so maybe it's not quite that extreme, but few would deny that the next entry in Hideo Kojima's mech combat series is not heavily anticipated. Sadly, Kojima has admitted that his studio just doesn't have the resources to produce the game right now. But the designer has teased that the company's new Fox..
If you're willing to ignore The Last Of Us, the reannouncement of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was easily the biggest story at this year's VGAs
The challenged title was first announced back in 2009, before heading into hiding for a good couple of years. That's because staff at Kojima Productions lost sight of the project, and the game was promptly (and secretly) cancelled. But the game was..
Phew, talk about quiet Saturday evenings
A brand new trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising has leaked online ahead of its expected debut during the VGAs. You could say, Metal Gear's back with a vengeance — or revengeance, huh? That's right, the ripper (Raiden) is back in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The game's being developed by Platinum Games in association with Kojima Productions. Are you..
Who said PlayStation Vita can't compete with the glut of $1 iPhone applications? Konami's confirmed that it will release a free game to coincide with the new handheld's Japanese launch
The wordy AR Combat Digi Q: Friend Tank Battalion, will release for free on the PlayStation Store, providing players with five stages of the augmented reality battle...
Believe it or not, Konami was planning a revival of the Silent Scope series
FEAR 3 developer Day 1 Studios was signed up to handle development duties, but when the publishing deal fell through, the company was forced to lay-off a whopping 95 percent of the team involved with the project. There hasn't been a Silent Scope game since 2002's internally developed PlayStation 2 effort. That was nearly..
We're going to be honest, we don't know a whole lot about Konami's NeverDead
We know it's being developed by British-based studio Rebellion. And we know that the game's protagonist is immortal, able to lose limbs during combat and then pick them up at a later date. But that's about the extent of our knowledge. Perhaps that's all Konami wants us to know because, to be honest, that does sound pretty..
Konami has confirmed that New Little King's Story will launch on PlayStation Vita in the West next year
Developed by Marvelous Entertainment, the cutesy RPG is a sequel to popular Nintendo Wii title Little King's Story, and sees players assume the role of King Corobo. Corobo's faced with the unfortunate task of saving his kingdom from the Nightmare, and players must use the PS Vita's various input..

With Metal Gear Solid: Rising set to gets its big coming out party at next month's VGAs, series creator Hideo Kojima has told Official PlayStation Magazine that series veterans might not initially fall in love with the game's new direction
If somebody thinks I love Snake and just really wants traditional stealth gameplay and that experience, then it may be hard to get into Rising, he told..
Following a strong backlash, Konami has announced that its high-definition re-release of Silent Hill 2 will feature an option to revert the game's voice acting back to its original form
Due to "technical and logistical reasons", that same feature won't be applied to Silent Hill 3. Both games are set to release as part of the Silent Hill HD Collection next year on PlayStation 3.
Hideo Kojima has hinted that there will grudgingly be a Metal Gear Solid 5
Speaking as part of the magazine's upcoming cover feature, the industry legend said: "I think well probably have to make it at some point, but what that will be, we have no idea." But in trademark style, Kojima played down his involvement with the hypothetical project: As far as my involvement in the project is..
Official PlayStation Magazine UK has been hinting at something Metal Gear related for some time -- and now it's finally spilled the beans
Issue 65 will mark the first time in the magazine's 16 year history that a developer has graced the publication's cover. Readers are promised Kojima's most "candid ever interview", talking Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Project Ogre and Metal Gear Solid 5..
One day, someone will write a book about the development of Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game — which is set to get a re-announcement in the next issue of Official PlayStation Magazine — has been missing in action for a good couple of years now. And the plot continues to thicken. Shugenobu Matsyuama has announced his resignation as producer of the project, confirming that he has moved onto..
One of the most memorable arcade brawlers of all time -- The Simpsons Arcade Game -- is coming to the PlayStation Network if an Australian rating is to be believed
The rating lists Backbone Entertainment as the developer and Konami as the publisher — meaning the game's very likely to be the original arcade release rather than EA's hokey iOS...
After months of silence, Konami is finally preparing to re-announce Metal Gear Solid: Rising
The game was last seen at E3 a couple of years ago — but hope of a re-reveal emerged late last month when the UK edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine teased some form of announcement. "The truth about Metal Gear Solid: Rising will finally be revealed at the 2011 VGAs by Hideo Kojima,"..
If you've been waiting desperately for more Silent Hill, then you're about to get your wish
Konami's attached dates to three Silent Hill titles that are all due to release in early 2012 — so even if the world ends before the year's out, at least you'll get your fix of the premium horror franchise. First up is the Silent Hill HD Collection, which is due out on January 24th. That game bundles the..
The British arm of the Official PlayStation Magazine is teasing something big
And stealthy. In fact editor Ben Wilson can't seem to hold his excitement about the feature, closing his editor's note with the comments: "I promise you that next month is an equally significant issue in our history. I desperately want to say more, but really mustnt. Other than this: turn to page 81 for a stealthy..
Konami has finally confirmed that it's delaying the European release of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection after heavy speculation
The game — which was previously due out in November — will now launch on February 3rd in Europe. Nice of Konami to clear that up at last. The game's set to launch in two guises in Japan: Peace Walker HD will come first on November 10th, followed by MGS2 and MGS3 on..
One of the best PlayStation Portable games of all time is preparing for its HD re-release, and we've got a couple of minutes of footage to celebrate
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD will launch as part of a Metal Gear Solid HD Collection in the West. Unfortunately Konami's being extremely coy about release details. But you can still stare longingly at the gameplay footage after the jump.
You remember Zombie Apocalypse right? The Konami published dual-stick zombie murdering acti---you don't remember? Admittedly, we're struggling
Problem is, there are that many dual-stick zombie shooters around these days they all tend to merge into one. Konami reckons the world is in need of just one more though, as it's announced Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone, the sequel to that game you don't..
Despite FIFA 12 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 being closer in quality than years prior, it really feels like EA Sports' franchise is starting to take a strangle-hold of the genre
According to an interview conducted by MCV, FIFA 12 is outselling Konami's alternative by a ratio of 25:1 based on each title's first weekend sales. "When you look at Pro Evolution Soccer versus FIFA, only five years..
We don't think anybody expected Silent Hill: Downpour to release this year
It's just taken a long, long time for Konami to announce anything official. But according to Eurogamer the game's not coming until next year, somewhere between the dates January and March 2012. The game was originally due out in November, but Konami's been keeping schtum about the project for a good couple of months now. The..
We're not sure who's going to make sense of the current storyline, but Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima hopes that the stealth series will continue after his death
The 48-year old (!!!) video game legend told an audience at the University of Southern California that he will continue to make Metal Gear Solid titles for as long as fans want them. "First of all, I just want to say that as..
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection may not be an entirely new product, but it's still an important one
You didn't think Konami was going to side-step collector's edition for such an anticipated release, did you? No, us neither. The limited edition package includes custom artwork by lead artist Yoji Shinkawa and a 248-page 'The Art Of Metal Gear Solid' artbook. Naturally you'll get the game too.
Konami's announced that a day one patch for Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 will incorporate stereoscopic 3D support into the game in addition to myPES, a new social network application that will allow players to share information between the game and Facebook
PES 2012's out next month on PS3.
Revenge Labs' downloadable brawler, Skullgirls, will not release until 2012 the company has announced
The team's decided to delay the game into the new year in order to give the product a final layer of polish. "Some companies call this 'feature creep,' but we call it the extra polish that takes a game from 'good' to 'great,'" noted Revenge Labs' Peter Bartholow. Some of the features..

Hideo Kojima has revealed that Zone Of The Enders 3 was in development
The Metal Gear man wouldn't go into more details about the unannounced title, but did confirm that he intends to produce the title at some point in the future. With Zone Of The Enders 3 put on hold for now, fans can at least look forward to the Zone Of The Enders HD Collection, which Kojima confirmed is due out on PS3 between..
You know what? Silent Hill: Downpour actually looks pretty good
Sure, we doubt it will ever live up to the heights of the series, but then we don't expect it to. The original couple of Silent Hill games were extraordinary, so it's no surprise. What we don't understand is why Konami is doing its very best to give fans a bad impression. This TGS trailer is fine if you turn the audio off and replace..
Konami's closed out the Tokyo Game Show with the announcement of a new Suikoden title for the PlayStation Portable
Named Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki, the game's yet to be fleshed out with too many details but there is at least a trailer after the jump. Release date and pricing are still to be announced. Catch the trailer after the jump.
Konami's confirmed that the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will infiltrate its way onto Japanese store shelves on November 23rd
The news emerged from Konami's stage show event earlier this evening. Konami also revealed that the PlayStation 3 version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will include a download voucher for the original Metal Gear...
To celebrate the European release of El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron, we've got five copies of Ignition's Biblical action game to give-away
Oooh, exciting. El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron is a third-person action game with platforming elements. The game is defined by it's imaginitive art-style, and follows the narrative of Enoch — a priest seeking seven angels who can prevent a great..
Hideo Kojima has confirmed that both the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Zone Of The Enders HD Collection will launch on the PlayStation Vita next year
Kojima also confirmed that he's working on a brand new, original title for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. "It will take a while" for us to learn more about the title though, Kojima clarified.
Excited about the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception? Japanese gamers will be able to wear their anticipation with a couple of brand new, uniquely styled DualShock 3 controllers due for release in the East from early November
The Metal Gear Solid controller will see release in North America minus the Kojima tie-in. In the US it will be simply known as the..
Being a Japanese focused PlayStation Portable game, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker's co-operative mode was all about social multiplayer
But the game's conversion to PlayStation 3 — via the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection — will side-step the need to get up close and personal, re-routing the game's co-operative multiplayer through the PSN. Kojima confirmed the news earlier in the week,..
Featuring one of the most influential survival horror games of all time, it's hard not to include the Silent Hill HD Collection on our list of most anticipated overlooked Holiday games
There are a number of high-definition remakes coming to the PlayStation 3 this year; most of them from big-name franchises. But despite the popularity (and quality) of the Silent Hill franchise, Konami seems keen on..
Konami's revealed the front-cover for Pro Evolution Soccer 2012, and it adorns the figure of Cristiano Ronaldo cracking one of his trademark dipping bullet free-kicks
The Real Madrid superstar (and Manchester United legend) said he was "flattered" to have been chosen as the coverstar. The game's due out on PS3 on October 14th, and PSP and PS2 on October 28th.
co.uk</a> has plumped up a November 4th release date for the previously release date-less Silent Hill: Downpour. Publisher Konami originally attached a late October release to the game, but has since gone quiet about the game's launch schedule. With the Silent Hill Collection due out in late October, the window would certainly make some sense. The retailer also posted an..
Don't expect AR Combat Digi Q to leave Japan
The Konami developed PlayStation Vita was announced during the publisher's press conference earlier in the week, and Andriasang's gone live with some juicy details about what the game actually entails. Based on the Japanese publisher's own line of infrared toys, AR Combat Digi Q sees the PlayStation Vita's analogue sticks act as the remote control in a..
The announcement of New Little King's Story for PlayStation Vita came without any screenshots, just a mention that the game's characters would have 'more realistic proportions', something that struck fear into the hearts of fans of the Wii original. Now we have the first screenshots below showing it's still pretty faithful to the 2009...
Konami's bringing a strong line-up of PlayStation Vita titles to this year's Tokyo Game Show
According to Andriasang, the publisher has four titles to showcase at the Japanese convention: Asphalt Injection, AR Combat Digi Q, New Little King's Story and Mahjong Fight Club (yay!).

As promised, this week's Famitsu has revealed a brand new PlayStation Vita game
The magazine has confirmed that Marvelous is working on a sequel to the popular (but under-appreciated) Nintendo Wii series, Little King's Story, for Sony's new uber-powerful handheld platform. According to Andriasang, the game's Japanese title is The King, The Demon King and the Seven Princesses: New King Story. Yeah..
Playable at TGS
In news that has sent at least one more PlayStation Vita sale heading Sony's way, it's been revealed that a follow-up to Wii classic Little King's Story is on the way to PlayStation Vita, and will be playable at Tokyo Games Show in September. Currently titled New Little King's Story, the game features the original hero King Corobo...
Konami's got two demos of Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 scheduled for release
The first will launch on Wednesday, and is based on a preview build of the game featuring six teams: Manchester United, AC Milan, FC Porto, Napoli, Santos and Peñarol. The demo will include ten minute matches and a challenge training mode. But because the first demo will not be representative of the final product, Konami is..
Sorry about that
Konami's liquid PSN puzzler Puddle looks like an interesting use of PlayStation Move, and at least as interesting as the rather-similar-actually Fluidity on WiiWare. The inevitable result of Move's motion controls and a game about fluids, you tilt the controller to funnel the liquids through a series of mazes, avoiding fire,...
Konami's released a video walkthrough of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater in high-definition
The game's due to release as part of Kojima Productions' upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on PlayStation 3. The game looks silky smooth running in HD at 60 frames-per-second. Fans of the original Metal Gear Solid titles will be delighted to see the game remastered, while newcomers are in for a treat..
Silent Hill: Book Of Memories is not exactly what we expected when the game was first announced
Designed specifically for PlayStation Vita, the WayForward developed co-operative title adopts an isometric viewpoint and has players working together in order to solve puzzles and fend off enemies. While the game is a massive departure from the traditional staples of the Silent Hill franchise, the..
When we learned that WayForward was working on a brand-new Silent Hill title for the PlayStation Vita we were extremely excited
WayForward has a terrific pedigree, and we think horror games feel at home on portable systems — there's something personal about playing a good horror game in bed with headphones, right? Unfortunately, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories isn't quite what we had in mind..
Travis touches down
It's been a long wait for über-Otaku Travis Touchdown to make his move across to North America, but finally the wait is over as No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise lands today. The enhanced version of the original No More Heroes on Wii comes with PlayStation Move controls, enhanced graphics and a few bosses from sequel No More...
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..
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..
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..
Tweets from the legendary Hideo Kojima have revealed that the high-definition remake of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will run at 60FPS on PlayStation 3
"60 frames per second in HD It's the best! Say peace!" said Kojima in one Tweet alongside images of the game. The high-definition version of Peace Walker is set to be joined by Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on..
Gorgeous platformer-cross-brawler El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron will make its way to Europe courtesy of Konami, the publisher has announced
The game will release in Europe on September 8th. If you haven't played the game's demo already, you should consider giving it a shot. The game's art-style really is something totally unique, as is the game's biblical subject matter. Don't worry though,..
Konami's firmed up details of the Silent Hill HD Collection, which will launch around "September/October" exclusively on PlayStation 3 under Sony's Classics HD banner
The collection includes PS2 classics Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 remastered in 720p. The voice acting has also been reworked, with trophies added to each of the titles. Let's watch Silent Hill 2's amazing intro after the jump..
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..
Konami's confirmed a PlayStation Network release of former XBOX Live Arcade exclusive, Castlevania: Harmony Of Despair
The PlayStation 3 version of the game will include playable versions of Julius Belmont and Yoko Belnades, which were both DLC on the XBOX version. The game will also include a new local co-op feature for four players, though the six-player online multiplayer will remain in tact..
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,..
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..
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
No hard details were shared by Konami, but we're a touch nervous about the addition. We were hoping Book Of Memories would be a narrative driven experience enhanced by PlayStation Vita's touch controls. Multiplayer..
Kojima Productions' E3 website has revealed one interesting factoid about Konami's upcoming Metal Gear Solid and Zone Of The Enders HD Collections: both will be available digitally via the PlayStation Store
The website also includes more detail about Kojima's "Transfarring" technology — which allows your Metal Gear Sold: Peace Walker progress to be transferred between PSP and PS3 —..
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. Now Konami is set to bring a title that looks similar on the surface to PlayStation Move: Puddle. Like Fluidity, you use your motion controller — in...
Titled "Book of Memories"
Konami just released an almost hour long video providing sneak peaks to much of its upcoming E3 content, featuring new info on games like NeverDead, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D for the Nintendo 3DS, and Silent Hill: Downpour. While discussing the Silent Hill franchise, they also dropped a quick mention of Silent Hill:...
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..
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..
Konami's clearly been taking a long, hard look at Sony's "Classics HD" line and the cash its been roping in for the platform holder
Eager to get a piece of the pie, Konami has announced three HD collections from the PS2 era: Metal Gear Solid, Zone Of The Enders and Silent Hill. The Metal Gear Solid Collection will feature Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and..
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..
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..
Hideo Kojima has ruled out and confirmed a series of rumours in a quick-fire interview on the latest Kojima Productions podcast
The news, picked up by Andriasang, rules out the possibility of a Metal Gear Solid 5 announcement, while also discrediting rumours of an MGS4 port for NGP. In addition, Kojima used the quick-fire question round to confirm that he has "something big" planned for..
Kojima Productions has promised surprises as part of Konami's pre-E3 event next Thursday
Speaking in the studio's official podcast, host Sean Eyestone mentioned that company has "something special" to announce before the big event in L.A.. "We are going to have a few announcements at E3 and we have some surprises, so be looking forward to that, he said. And we have something..
Let's be honest, we all knew it was probably coming
A report on JVN overnight is suggesting that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will be made available for PlayStation 3 via the recently announced PSP Remasters Series. Apparently the announcement will be made at E3, presumably kicking off a bumper evening of Sony and Kojima announcements. Presumably...
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..
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..
Definitely not for kids
No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise is coming to Europe next week, and Konami wants to get you better acquainted with series hero Travis Touchdown by publishing a new trailer. The new PS3 version has been awarded an 18 rating thanks to its inclusion of blood, as well as plenty of swearing and over-the-top violence, as is made...
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..
Another adults-only Move title
No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise (known as No More Heroes: Red Zone in Japan) is bound to make waves when it comes to PlayStation 3 later this year, much like the original No More Heroes on Wii all those years ago. The trailer below, despite being in Japanese, should give you a pretty clear idea of what to expect from...
If the Internet's wishing for one thing, and it's for some kind of Hideo Kojima x PlayStation E3 gangbang
As well as expecting the announcement of a new NGP and PlayStation 3 Metal Gear project, forum goers are also anticipating some kind of PlayStation 3 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. The discussion stems from a PSM3 magazine rumour which suggests "a major PlayStation franchise" is..
Konami's promoted legendary developer, Hideo Kojima, to the rank of corporate officer a press release has confirmed
The promotion makes Kojima one of the top bodies at the publisher, and rightly so. Kojima's been behind some of the best games throughout the PlayStation's lifespan, including the Metal Gear Solid and Zone Of The Enders titles. Kojima's currently rumoured to be working on an NGP title..
Having played the brilliant Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow as one of our Christmas catch-up games (yes, even we have those), we were rather looking forward to MercurySteam's continuation of the narrative with the previously announced "Reverie" DLC
Unfortunately the additional single-player content has been pushed back until March as per an announcement on the game's Facebook page. No word on whether..
.. 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
