    Now I feel bad for not playing all the way through, but it required a lot of… waiting.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Oh. My. God.

  • Hatsuaki

    That was… amazing. Hideo Kojima surprises yet again…

  • Solomon_Kano
    • jujubee88

      He’s awesome, and I could see the influence very clearly in the demo.

      Probably the best demo ever, but I’d have to actually play it and not just see the (funny as hell) reaction vids being posted just now. xD

    Whoa!? Awesome, i would have never……A round of applause for Kojima and the team that arranged this reveal

  • Gigus

    Wtf?! Kojima actually fooled me that time. I really thought it was a separate game and teaser from kojima’s announcement about box game play for mgsv. Good job kojima! So glad you didn’t pull a boring joke like your VGA announcement.

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    gotta say i wasnt expecting this, norman reedus!

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    Cool. Great surprise! And it’s fantastic to see GDT back in gaming – I remember when THQ went out of business, one of the first projects to fall apart was that horror game he was working on with Volition.

    So what does this mean for Konami then? They, like, officially have no internal developers now, yes? Kojima Productions has always had Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders, they kept getting their name on Castlevania even though MercurySteam was actually putting those together, and now they’re in charge of Silent Hill too? Let’s just make Kojima a publisher! Screw Konami, lol! Give him the rights to Mystical Ninja Goemon and Sparkster: The Rocket Knight too, and we’re all set! ( ^ – ^ )

    Kojima must be one smelly dude.

    If Akira Yamaoka is composing I think I’ll actually cry.

    Give me a debut trailer with a song like Waiting For You or You’re Not Here and it would bring me to my knees.

    • Skerj

      I know right? It’s like. ..everything you could want then.

    • PrinceHeir

      Masahiro Ito Needs to come back though.

      Love Silent Hill 3’s art!

  • Skerj

    Yamaoka needs to appear, where’s Yamaoka!? We need his music. D:

  • Sai

    Genius, simply genius. All the way while playing it I was thinking “this really nailed the SH feel”, and then bam!

  • BossTuff

    Soooo, it’s all cool now that the new Silent Hill is exclusive to PS4, amirite?

    • Six

      No one knows if this is exclusive or not. We’ll have to wait for an official press release.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      This we do not know.

      I’ve reached out to Konami to see if they’d comment given that the cat’s out of the bag now, though.

      • BossTuff

        Ah fair enough, but since it’s being published by Sony I doubt it’d appear on the XBO.

        • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

          We don’t know if it’s being published by Sony either. The only thing that was published by Sony was P.T., which could have just been them playing their part in Kojima’s masterful game.

          • BossTuff

            I’ll give a maybe on that. In either case, I think it’s awesome that it’s making a comeback.

    • MrFinalgamer

      If it’s not, then I can already see Sony looking to money hat it, since MS already did with Tomb Raider. =P

      • BossTuff

        I’m just wondering if we’ll see the same level of FUD around it that’s all.

        As a good friend of mine says, “I fully support exclusives and so-called moneyhatting. There’s absolutely no point in being angry about this, because in the long run it’s good for business. Just sit back and let the console makers fight it out.

        Honestly, if you want to get the absolute best gaming experience, the most satisfying solution is to buy all the systems.”

  • Anime10121

    So hype to play this tomorrow! CAN NOT WAIT?!

  • PrinceHeir

    I hope there’s a secret Zone of the Enders 3 trailer at TGS 2014!!!!!

    • Elvick

      They hype would be real.

  • BlueCereal

    Well I’ve never played Silent Hill but it’s good that JP developers are back on making this series.

  • Six

    The Evil Within, Fatal Frame V, and a new Silent Hill.

    Christ almighty. The glorious return of Japanese horror.

    • PrinceHeir

      Resident Evil 7 Needs to be in this!

      I hope Capcom is taking notes.

      • 罪罰

        No, it should stay dead >_>

      • Anime10121

        Resident Evil does not belong in that category anymore… it aint survival horror, its action :(

      • César H. Sandoval

        Nah, the only decent thing capcom can offer is a port of the RE1 Remake LOL.

      • Kenny ケニー

        Crapcom already dead since 2012, now what they do is just throwing their games for western companies to develop and making more Monster Hunters… eww…

    • Budgiecat

      missing Siren

      • PrinceHeir

        That too!

        • Budgiecat

          And SCEI and Atlus need to resurrect Rule of Rose and Capcom bring back Clock tower, Sweet Home and Haunting Ground..

          • PrinceHeir

            Deadly Premonition 2(it’s being worked now i’m sure), Koudelka, Kuon,

            While it’s not horror, i really want a new Dino Crisis game and Parasite Eve game that’s as dark as I and II.

      • Elvick

        I still recall the director wanting to make more horror games via downloadable space.

        • Budgiecat

          He’s def down to make another one. there was that one rumor of a PS4 one which ended up being false. Up to Sony really.

      • MrFinalgamer

        The director is still making more french comic goodness AKA Gravity Rush 2.

  • 罪罰

    >Made by Japanese staff

    THIS IS IT.

    • Budgiecat

      THIS IS IT.
      (ooh wah)
      please let Corn know,
      If thissss ain’t horror
      you gotta,
      JUST SAY SO!

    • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

      I rather it be made by a team of multi-ethnic/cultural individuals!

      • Warboss Aohd

        so would i honestly.

      • Budgiecat

        DreadOut should come to PS4

      • 罪罰

        JAPANESE HORROR

          African horror!

  • Six
    • MrFinalgamer

      Oooh, that looks really good, but…that S in “Hill”, is going to drive me crazy!

    • Gigus

      Fox engine sexiness. I just hope Norman Reedus can do a better job at VA than Sutherland. I really hope his VA skills have improved in MGSV.

    • Budgiecat

      he’s got a guilty looking face going on.

      Also Six, why you give Silent Hill a green light play pass but not Evil Within, Fatal Frame, Resident Evil REmake and Alien: Isolation because fears?

      Silent Hill is not scary?

      • Six

        I’m going to buy The Evil Within, and Fatal Frame if it’s localized. Dunno about REmake or Isolation.

        • Budgiecat

          If you still got your PS3, you should check out PS2 Siren on PSN and import EU physical copy of Siren Blood Curse.
          You played Deadly Premonition?

          • Six

            Yup. Great game.

            • Budgiecat

              okay so now you just got:

              Siren
              Siren Blood Curse
              Rule of Rose
              Haunting Ground

              left

              well I mean there’s also Obscure and Calling and the Grudge for Wii, but..meh

              • tokyobassist

                Rule of Rose isn’t worth the stupid asking price if you ask me. Unique but such a mess of a game it’s hard to enjoy.

                Haunting Ground rocks if you can get it cheap but it’s moreso entertaining for it’s different take on horror more than actually being scary.

      • MrFinalgamer

        Have you seen The Walking Dead? He always makes that face (although, typically angrier).

  • $18114340

    Regardless of whether the game is actually that good or not, they’ve really nailed the hype factor with this announcement. As long as the game isn’t startlingly bad or even just as long as it’s better than the recent entries I’m pretty sure it’ll pull its weight if they’re trying to revitalize the series.

    • César H. Sandoval

      I doubt they will make a bad game with all the big names in the staff already.

  • Raziel Kõbe

    OMG!!!! Hideo Kojima crazyness, true silent hill horror is back :)

  • Aiddon

    well with Lords of Shadow tanking Kojima needs to find another Konami name to latch onto to prove he’s not a one-trick pony. I also wouldn’t be surprised it this was actually that game del Toro was going to make with THQ before it collapsed.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Except the one LoS game Kojima’s name is attached to was the successful one.

      Given that Del Toro’s game with Volition was to be a Lovecraftian affair, probably not, since SH is in a decidedly different mold. That died with THQ.

      • Aiddon

        and who’s to say they won’t shoehorn in some of that with Silent Hill?

        • Solomon_Kano

          They could, of course, but Del Toro’s history to date makes it unlikely. Having followed his work on film, at any given moment he’s always pursuing a ton of different projects, many of which don’t pan out (Hulk, Haunted Mansion, At the Mountains of Madness, etc.). Instead of repurposing bits and pieces of them for later ventures in a similar vein though, he always comes up with something new for his next work. I’d imagine that won’t change, just because he’s working on a game.

          As a big fan of both horror and gaming, I’m sure Del Toro knows better than to try and take a storied series like Silent Hill’s identity and use it as an outlet for his failed take on Lovecraft. But also, as a big Lovecraft fan, I’m absolutely certain that Del Toro wouldn’t want to do a game about that unless he could fully commit to that mythology.

    • AkuLord3

      i think you’re confusing Kojima with Konami…Kojima could do other things…if Konami would let him. Though i can’t say its much of a surprise people want to think of him as the face of Konami since he’s really the only note worthy people they have left.

      • Elvick

        Maybe if they’d stop riding Kojima’s d, they could find some NEW noteworthy people there. But it’s Konami, they’re kinda lame IMO.

        • Budgiecat

          kinda? lol

          • Elvick

            I was trying to be nice. :p

        • $18114340

          Konami makes pachislot games now. I have the sneaking suspicion their corporate has some deeply-embedded xenophobia and bitterness over last-gen failures in international markets, just like Sega, to the point where they’ve become such an insular company that they don’t really care about catering to the console audience that gave them their name anymore. Hopefully this new Silent Hill proves otherwise.

          Although I’m pretty glad Lords of Shadow tanked after all, with some scandalous allegations against the producers to boot. Can anybody imagine if those tools got their hands on Contra?

      • Dick Mountainjoy

        He’s the VP of Konami, That excuse doesn’t fly. Plus, he could always leave if he wanted to, like… the entirety of Platinum did with Capcom.

        I get he’s kind of a big deal, but he’s also full of shit a lot of the time… Looking at you OGRE.

  • PrinceHeir

    Moby Dick Studios and now 7780 Studios(is there a meaning to 7780?) Lol!

    Please Please Just announce Zone of the Enders 3 already at TGS 2014!!!!

  • Six

    NeoGAF is fucking disgusting me. A new Silent Hill gets announced with these kinds of credentials and it just falls apart into fucking console war bullshit.

    Freaking pathetic.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Really? I just read 2 pages, but every comment could be summed up by the word “WHAT!?” and also “HOLY SHIT!”. I guess I should read further. =P

    • http://www.guidingtech.com/ Alvaro Bernedo

      I’ve been reading the 20+ page thread and I’ve seen nothing of the sort. People (myself included) are going nuts over the announcement but that’s it.

    • BossTuff

      I got to page 10 and it still seemed to be filled with excitement. It’s a pretty great reveal.

      • Six

        I was probably a little hyperbolic, but there is some pretty bleh console warrior hypocrisy going on.

        • BossTuff

          Breathe in the blue air, breathe out the red air. :)

          I guess you *did* pick up some outrage from the store!

          • Six

            What did I need outrage for again? :P

            • Solomon_Kano

              Console war a la mode.

        • Mnoz

          That’s expected though after SE breathing life into the console war with Tomb Raider exclusivity.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    If Konami doesn’t share details tonight, I take it we’ll hear about this during Kojima’s MGSV event tomorrow.

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    Ryan Gosling might also be in this lol: https://twitter.com/HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN/status/329000989761871873

    • César H. Sandoval

      Haha, that would be something

    • Budgiecat

      I’d rather Ryan Gosling in a DRIVER game

      • Solomon_Kano

        Gosling for GTAVI. I’d actually play that.

  • badmoogle

    I’m really happy that Silent Hill is getting back to Japanese hands i just hope that Del Toro’s involvement is as minimal as possible.

    • https://www.tumblr.com/blog/xxxthedevilwearsnadaxxx agevnavi

      Watch the orphanage and see how eerie and creepy his movies can be.

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    Random Hollywood actor, random Hollywood producer with no game experience, and a Game producer notorious for a lack of subtlety,exposition dumps , shameless fan-service and product placement, and mastery of shill.

    This will be a FANTASTIC combo for psychological horror…

  • Aaron Baldwin

    How do you get the phone to ring guys? Got all the pieces?

  • SDMF

    Interesting. It’ll be most interesting to see how Kojima and Toro handle it, but I’m not feeling terribly enthused about Reedus as the star.

  • Budgiecat

    So I take it this was the mysterious Japanese PS4 game people were waiting to see?

    Cool

    But still need muh Shenmue III…

    • Gigus

      Stop looking for sailors cat.

  • SuperLuigi

    Norman is awesome in walking dead and boondock saints so looking foward to this.

    • Budgiecat

      speaking of Boondocks….we need a Boondocks game…

  • Dick Mountainjoy

    Nothing bringing that feel of Japanese gaming like that American Actor.

    Who’s last game was great by the way.

  • Elle

    If this is the japanese game and somehow Team Siren at Sony is involved I’ll piss myself. I literally will. Lawd.

    • jujubee88

      They are working on a new Gravity Rush (teased at last TGS).

      • drproton

        SCEJ was consolidated into fewer teams recently, so it’s quite possible that Team Siren has more than one concurrent project.

        • jujubee88

          I suppose so. TGS is officially the next big stage for these kind of announcements this year.

          And iirc that’s in September.

      • Elle

        Yeah but they can work on more than one game.

        • jujubee88

          They can. But it’s up to Sony’s digression.

  • Aaron Baldwin

    Does anybody know how to get the phone to ring??

  • jujubee88

    Hideo and Del Toro will be a good combo, imo. Like, if the Penumbra team couldn’t get to do something with an IP like Siren or SH (which they can not as they are doing a Project Morpheus game, atm) then I think these two have the right touch:

    Kojima, with his socioeconomical espionage experience in writing MGS/ZOE. Guillermo Del Toro, with his twisted machinations and ability to create horror on cinema — the future for the IP looks like it’s in good hands. And, Konami did a heck of a job w/ this viral marketting campaign!

    We’ll see how it goes, but damn. This feels like the return of a king. :P

    • JoJo_718

      Don’t forget that Guillermo Del Toro is also renowned for his amazing monster designs, ;)

      • jujubee88

        Yeah, I heard his philosophy about creating monsters in a podcast with Ken Levine and his definition of what a “monster” should be draws inspirations about real life creatures with an ablity to rip human flesh apart yet look stylish while doing so (i.e. a majestic Tiger pouncing on you).

        I suggest everyone check that podcast out bc (as I said) it features him and Levine just shooting the shi!t about a lot of things and you even get to see how big into gaming Del Toro is.

      • vishmarx

        he made pyramid head so oh shit!

  • z_merquise

    Biggest surprise in Gamescom and no one really see it coming.

    This is such a very nice way to promote a game and I think it’s very effective. Also nice to see that another Konami IP giving a Fox Engine treatment!

    I’m so excited to see more of this one.

  • Paul Rodriguez

    OK. Guess I’ll be online with my PS4. I need to check out PT.

  • Raziel Kõbe

    This demos is scary like hell. Only 1,3 GB :(, short

  • http://Gematsu.com Vayne

    We have hope to see the Nisekoi game in the west? After this confirmation of Silent Hill?

    • David Zech

      I wish :(

  • DarthBrian

    I must have screwed up somewhere. Got a weird red thing with weird eye pictures all over the place. >_>

  • PrinceHeir

    “Silent Hill” is in closed room setting and doesn’t require full action so that we can focus on the graphic quality. Enemy doesn’t have to be a lot or move fast. It only requires scariness by graphics and presentation. As being a creator making action game in open world, such game is very enviously attractive. Wish someone could create this on FOX engine.”

    He can finally make this happen :)

  • ddsfan2

    This sounds very compelling, and finally a chance for Kojima to work on a non-MGS franchise. I’m stoked, to say the least.

    • Reyes Vazquez

      They have another mgs in the works and it’s soon to be released

  • PrinceHeir

    I also hope the gameplay won’t be first person.

    I want my third person horror please!

    • https://www.tumblr.com/blog/xxxthedevilwearsnadaxxx agevnavi

      Considering that they are using a character model of Norman Reedus I’m pretty sure its still 3rd person. Maybe you can switch to first person to get a better look at things while playing.

  • Bob Obb

    Oh my fucking jesus.

    • jujubee88

      Your own personal Jesus?

  • jujubee88

    It’s Konami. And it said the demo isn’t reflective of the final..

    Man. Not sure how to feel now since I liked the demo a lot. :P

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’m thinking the teaser was put together just to show off the tone they’re aiming for, but they’re probably still working out what the actual gameplay will entail.

      I haven’t played the demo yet myself, but there’s not much to it at a system level, right? Probably early days still.

      • jujubee88

        You’re right, and I do like the tone. Which is why I’m afraid of what can happen between now and when the game launches considering some of Konami’s flubs as of late.

        “… there’s not much to it at a system level, right?” Not sure what you mean by the term, “system level”. Can you be more clear on this?

        • Solomon_Kano

          I think Kojima and Del Toro collectively have the kind of vision that should allow this to stay on track all the way through.

          I thought that might not be clear, but I wasn’t quite sure how to word it haha. I mean, what all do you do in the demo? It’s pretty basic in how it’s played, yea? Just like walking around and opening doors?

  • vishmarx

    FYI the game is gonna be nothing like the teaser.its was just another godly troll by kojima to mask the announcement.

  • tokyobassist

    Inb4 the Teamu Sirento fanboys shard on it. I’ve given Silent Hill games made by absolute nobody devs a chance so it’s only fair I give someone with a fairly good track record a chance.

  • pixxxelz

    I tried to play this but I just couldn’t
    Shit is too scary >_<

    • jujubee88

      Is it the jump scares or the pacing that put you off?

      • pixxxelz

        Both lol

    • Elle

      The scary kinda wore off after I didn’t know wtf to do and the same woman crying and baby giggle looping every few minutes. lol

    I don’t think I should trust the tap water from now on.…..

    • AnimusVox

      The ‘Look Behind you’ make me say ‘Fuck that’ lol

  • Swellingrabbit

    Wait so its not a remake right? because it said ‘Silent HillS’ adding an “S” in there after a second or two which may stand for 5?? Silent Hill 5? Anybody? UFO ending anybody?

    • tokyobassist

      Technically the abortion known as Silent Hill Homecoming is considered the 5th game in Japan.

      I thought Silent Hills sounds Japanese as hell. They probably thought it sounded cool lol.

      • Swellingrabbit

        Yeah Silent Hills sounds so awkward, like
        “WELCOME TO SILENT HILLLLLLLLLs”

        • tokyobassist

          Sounds like a seedy hostel in Roppongi.

          • Swellingrabbit

            Oh man I know

    • https://www.tumblr.com/blog/xxxthedevilwearsnadaxxx agevnavi

      I think that the S could stand for 7 as downpour was the sixth game. They probably thought that S was better than putting a 7 at the end.

    So is it Exclusive to PS4? or was the demo just exclusive?

      yes

    • Solomon_Kano

      GDT included?

      • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

        I’ll admit I didn’t know he was involved. I knew the Kojima part though.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yea, I think that was only a matter of time after he spoke about how it could benefit from Fox. There was clearly interest on his end.

          • Anime10121

            Too bad the interest in ZotE aint as large :(

            • Solomon_Kano

              I don’t think ZOE is a matter of interest, but more of viability. Before the HD collection bombed, there was certainly every intention of continuing that. Unfortunately, Kojima is now in a position where he actually has to care if shit sells or not. If only he were still just the head of KojiPro…

              • Anime10121

                Then I blame everyone who didnt buy ZotE HD D:<

                Still sucks that they gouged the success of the franchise on a remasters sales :(

                  It’s a pity, but for a series that was never very popular, I guess they needed something to work from. It wouldn’t do to jump right into a big budget Fox game for <200k globally. Yikes.

                  Really, I'm more sour that the Vita version of the HD collection just fell off the face of the earth. I wanted muh Jehuty to go ;_;

    Oh more Silent Hill at last, excellent. I hope it’s not exclusive that’d be all kinds of silly in this day and age (unless Sony paid for it). I’ve been waiting for Hideo to do Silent Hill, it’s about damn time.

      It’s a ps4 exclusive.

      • Solomon_Kano

        That hasn’t been said by any party. Sony published the PT demo, but that’s it.

    • Lance Siders

      Ya like tomb raider being an Xbox times exclusive . It is ps4 exclusive this is game that del Toro was working on for Sony
