Don't look in the basin
Before the inevitable Dreams remake emerges, here’s P.T. recreated in Unreal Engine 4 – because someone was always going to make it, right? This is an attempt at a total replica, considering Konami was so kind as to remove the original from the PlayStation Store. It features virtual reality support if you re
Comfort in numbers
Republished on Monday, 31st October 2016: We're bringing this article back from the archives to celebrate Hallowe'en today. The original text follows. Originally published on Monday, 27th October 2014: I absolutely adore horror movies. From the crackling campfires of the Friday the 13th franchise, to the lurid lunacy of the...
And it's great
People want Silent Hills really bad. There's zero chance of that ever happening now that Hideo Kojima has left Konami, of course, but there's hope that the project could live on in spirit – perhaps as part of the auteur's inaugural PlayStation 4 exclusive. And to help encourage that to happen, a talented group of film makers have...
But of course
Once upon a time, before Konami imploded, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was working on Silent Hills in addition to The Phantom Pain. It makes sense, then, that there would be some references to the survival horror, and its PlayStation 4 playable teaser, in the open world espionage escapade. And our friend Arekkz Gaming has...
Silent Hills is dead, long live Silent Hills
Silent Hills is as dead as a doornail, but that doesn't mean that game directors Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro won't be working together anymore. In fact, the two are already sharing ideas and planning a new game. "I love working with Kojima-san. We are still in touch," del Toro told IGN. "We are...
No, Microsoft isn't buying Xbox One exclusivity for billions of dollars
Alright, seeing as IGN is reporting on this one, we'll take the bait: Silent Hills is not going to be announced as an Xbox One exclusive at E3 2015 next month. Well, theoretically it could be, but this brand new rumour which emerged on Rooster Teeth and is popping up all over...
If you've still got a bag full of hate with Konami's name on it, you'll probably enjoy this new Mega64 video, in which the gang take both subtle and not-so-subtle jabs at the Japanese company. However, the true brilliance of the clip is that it's all created in true P.T. style, complete with creepy corridors and juttering abominations...
Director breaks silence on canned PS4 title
Guillermo del Toro, the famed Mexican film director behind acclaimed flicks such as Pan's Labyrinth, has broken his silence on, er, Silent Hills in an interview with IGN. Regular readers will know that Konami ruthlessly killed the promising PlayStation 4 survival horror earlier in the year – and no one...
At this point, we're convinced that Konami is just trolling. Not content with – deep breath – cancelling Silent Hills, de-listing P.T. from the PlayStation Store, and removing the license from download lists – it's now stopping people from Share Playing it, too. To be fair, this could be an infrastructure issue on Sony's end, but we...
Suffer in silence
Many had assumed that 'purchasing' the free license for P.T. would be enough to allow you to re-download the Silent Hills demo from the PlayStation Store in perpetuity – but in typical Konami style, the promotional title has been totally pulled from Sony's servers. Polygon noticed that following yesterday's
Fans want Kojima Productions to continue development
We already knew that some of you weren't too happy about Konami putting the nail in Silent Hills' metaphorical coffin last week, but apparently another 70,000 people feel the same way. A petition started by Yauheni Zinkevich, one of the game's early fans, comes with a letter to directors Hideo...
We definitely should have seen this one coming. Survival horror teaser P.T. has been dragged kicking and screaming from the PlayStation Store today, meaning that it's no longer available to download. Of course, this has lead to a couple of deals popping up on eBay, which offer used PlayStation 4 consoles which come with P.T. installed on...
Rest in peace
Konami danced around the prospect of Silent Hills' cancellation in a statement released earlier today, but in a comment to Kotaku, it's placed a final nail in the coffin. The publisher told the website that it's committed to developing future Silent Hill games, but that the "embryonic Silent Hills project developed with Guillermo del...
Will continue to develop the Silent Hill series
It had the pedigree to make survival horror relevant again, but the Silent Hills dream is all but over. Following on from comments made by Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro over the weekend, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus has now admitted that he's no longer involved with the project...
"It breaks my greasy heart"
Two titles are dominating the headlines this weekend for polar opposite reasons: Call of Duty: Black Ops III for its impending announcement – and Silent Hills for its seemingly inevitable cancellation. Hot on the heels of demo P.T.'s imminent removal from the PlayStation Store, acclaimed film director Guillermo del Toro...
Scare no more
P.T., one of the PlayStation 4's most memorable experiences to date, will be removed from the PlayStation Store next week. In a move no doubt orchestrated by Konami's clueless upper-executives, a message on the game's official website explains that the scare-fest's "distribution period will expire on Wednesday, 29th April". Assuming...
Well, there goes that
After that stunning debut demo – which was this author's personal pick for Game of the Year – enthusiasm for Hideo Kojima's take on the Silent Hill franchise was sky high here at Push Square Towers. However, following news that the esteemed director will be joining the e
If you needed a little more proof that P.T. is quite possibly the greatest survival horror game in over a decade, then this clip should do the trick. In it, Twitch user CryoSphereD pauses the Silent Hills demo in order to take a break and interact with her viewers. However, after about two minutes, the release decides that she's had...
Stealthily announced at Sony's Gamescom conference, P.T. was billed as a 'Playable Teaser' for a new first-person horror game by the fictional 7780s Studio. After the sort of frenzied investigation that only the Internet can provide, it was discovered that the daunting downloadable was in fact a demo for a new Silent Hill game directed...
It was only a matter of time before a crafty fan remade Hideo Kojima's harrowing P.T. demo in Minecraft, and, as usual, the enterprising community has outdone itself. All of your favourite moments are represented here: the famous looping hallway, the embarrassingly dirty bathroom, and, of course, the lingering sense that downloading this...
See the sequels cross over
Why does Hideo Kojima have to be so darn awesome all of the time? With the auteur taking the reins of the upcoming Silent Hills, it’s no real surprise to see the reboot crossing streams with the hotly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – but we didn’t expect it to happen quite so soon. In the video...
No one can hear you scream here
Not content with releasing the scariest PlayStation 4 game to date, Hideo Kojima has followed up with a Silent Hills teaser trailer based on this year’s P.T. demo. The video shows a familiar corridor with more junctions this time, and we’re quickly treated to footage of decapitated heads, maggots, and, well,...
Incredibly, people are still pulling secrets out of last week’s Silent Hills playable teaser. Considering that the demo was built by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima, it’s perhaps no real surprise – but this latest Easter egg maintains a long running tradition. If you’ve played a Silent Hill game before, you’ll know that...
But will it be third-person or first-person?
If you’ve just managed to work your way through the P.T. demo, then you may have a couple of years left to settle your nerves and dry clean your clothes prior to the release of Silent Hills, as director Hideo Kojima has hinted that the game may not be ready until 2016. That’s according to
Scream in silence
The whole Rise of the Tomb Raider mess appears to have caused some confusion in the console exclusives space, so let us teach you a very valuable lesson: if Sony doesn’t scream ‘Only on PlayStation’ after revealing a project, then it’s going to end up elsewhere. Firms may use doublespeak to confuse their message – we...
Hell hath no hallway
Hideo Kojima wants to loosen our bowels with his upcoming Silent Hill sequel for the PlayStation 4, and he’s not messing around. I’ll concede to diving headfirst into the recently released P.T. (or Playable Teaser) demo yesterday in a bullish mood, expecting the tense but
A much needed walkthrough for Silent Hills' playable teaser
We’ve already established that P.T., the playable teaser for Kojima Productions’ upcoming Silent Hills, is a petrifying slice of survival horror – but it’s also quite a complicated one. While the demo is a brilliant
Kojima reckons your current ones are going to get messy
Silent Hills is official. The game was announced in a cryptic manner during Sony’s big Gamescom 2014 press conference yesterday, courtesy of a PlayStation 4 demo available now on the PlayStation Store. It’s being helmed by
In arguably the most bizarre and brilliant headline to come out of Sony's Gamescom conference today, it has been uncovered that Hideo Kojima will be creating a new Silent Hill game for PlayStation 4. Ever the provocateur, Kojima couldn't simply announce the game during the presser, but instead had to sneakily reveal it afterwards...
