Forgive us, but we've still not quite managed to get over the cancellation of Silent Hills. While Hideo Kojima moving on and developing Death Stranding more than makes up for that, we still occasionally ponder what the Metal Gear Solid creator's take would have looked like. But wonder no longer folks, Silent Hill is back! Well, the name is, because this isn't a video game.
Yes, that's right, Konami has done it again and released a brand new slot machine based on the horrifying franchise. Supposedly part of the company's line-up at an upcoming Las Vegas presentation, it is described as "a striking combination of sleek entertainment, premium packaging, and player comfort, backed by a rich library of original titles."
We're shuddering at the thought of it, but if you really want to get a good look at what this cabinet looks like, head on through this link. Do you hope this slot machine makes its way to your local arcade some time in the future? Waste away your cash in the comments below.
Why Konami? Who hurt you?
Well unless the gambling laws change in my state, this or any slot machine wont be in any arcade here.
"a striking combination of sleek entertainment, premium packaging, and player comfort, backed by a rich library of original titles."
konami just chill out. You made a slot machine,not a silent hill themed ps6.

For a second I thought the PT demo was getting put back on the store. Genuinely annoyed that this isn't what I was hoping for.
I hate Konami so much. They have so many good franchises under their umbrella just rotting away.
You think thats scary, while swapping over to my new ps4 pro a couple days ago i messed up and lost my PT demo. ............ Kill me
@Gmork___ lol That's one big reason why I plan on leaving my PS4 the way it is.
Because Konami made the game where it can't be redownloaded (by legitimate means, anyhow), hard drives containing P.T. game data are actually physically scarce these days.
I really wish Sony would find a way to purchase Silent Hill from Konami. It's implausible, but it's a dream scenario.
Sony, are you listening!? Acquire konami and save their dying franchises from themselves!
i am more annoyed by the clickbait of this site than i am with Konami
@fabisputza00 welcome to Pushsquare fabisputza. I too was lulled into push by a headline and I'm still stranded here 4 years and 8 months years later. Have you got a dinghy? I will make an oar out of that palm tree. Let's set sail for buzzfeed I hear its safe over there.
I wonder why the government of Japan has not made laws on regulations on Pachinko machines?
@Tasuki the state i live in slot machines are legal. I have mixed emotions about them. Sure they are bad when people abuse them, real bad, but gambling brings alot of jobs into WV, which is a state with a very high unemployment rate. Double edged sword i guess.
There are regulations on pachinko machines in Japan.
What exactly do you wonder?
@RBMango Well the creator of SH joined Sony and made Siren and Gravity Rush. They could get him to create something in the vein of the good Silent Hill games. Hope SH fans finally get something that they will like since I will never get Dark Cloud 3.
This is just.... awful..... AGAIN!
I’m still genuinely horrified and bummed out that Silent Hills got cancelled...
HIT THE LEVER!!!!
I’m slightly moved to tears every time I play Gradius V, Symphony of the Night or Probotector (UK gamer here) knowing the chances of getting any additions to these franchises even remotely like these entries is next to impossible short of a hostile takeover or a well placed meteorite strike during a mass board meeting. I could argue they have attempted to redeem themselves with some of the Classic Collection releases but it’s like they hand us a bag of tasty old style fudge only to then blast some newly formed feacal matter in our faces created by eating said fudge.
@Rob_230 If Contra Rogue Corps is an example of this “effort” then forgive me if my expectations can be described as subterranean.
@LaytonPuzzle27 Gambling for cash is illegal in Japan, but pachinko gambling in Japanese society has found a legal loophole allowing it to exist. Under the law, pachinko balls won from games cannot be exchanged directly for money in the parlor, nor can they be removed from the premises or exchanged with other parlors; however, they can be legally traded to the parlor for so-called "special prize" tokens which are then legally "sold" for cash to a separate vendor located off-premises. These vendors (ostensibly independent from—but often owned by—the parlor owner) then sell the tokens back to the parlor at the same price paid for them (plus a small commission), thus turning a cash profit without technically violating the law
Can someone just buy out Konami and end their reign of terror once and for all?
Well at least they're honest about it, rather than making pachinko in nba games and rated it E for Everyone like take-two
@ellsworth004 I have nothing against legalized gambling, heck I lived in Reno for a number of years, I was just commenting more on the writers comment of "Do you hope this slot machine makes its way to your local arcade some time in the future?". Since slot machines are not legal where I am at (only card rooms are legal) I won't be seeing these machines in an arcade or anywhere for that matter here. 😂
Konami: "you will be sucked!"
Lol sucks to be a gamer these publishers just do you any kinda way lmao....
