Fireworks have all but been pissed on. I can't bear to play that P.t. demo now, as it truly will be just a "tease." This was really a beacon of hope for the near future of psychological horror. Who can I punch to quell this sadness and rage?

Don't worry; Konami plan to remove P.T. from the online store like it never existed.

I shall buy Phantom Pain as a final goodbye and I love you to Kojima, and then Konami will be dead to me for fucking up Kojima and fucking up MGS and Silent Hill.

At least with Phantom Pain, Metal Gear Solid is actually complete; I can put it down afterwards knowing I have everything of it.

What makes a company wake up in the morning and go "we need to become irrelevant and penniless?"

Maybe they read the forums saying that all game companies do is remake the same games?

UberGott:
As a firm believer that Silent Hill couldn't possibly get any worse, this is a damned shame.

Hardly surprising given Konami's current circumstances, though. I'm hoping once Kojima is finished with MGSV we'll see him join up with another major publisher, and then perhaps "P.T." can become a full fledged game without the baggage of it being a Silent Hill game inevitably coloring expectations and so on.

Maybe. Del Toro only got involved in this because he was friends with Kojima and they had a vision; I can imagine not-Silent Hills may be worked on and released in the future. P.T. was so good it shows they have an amazing vision and I would love to see it.

I spent a long time looking for a .gif to sum up my feelings but I couldn't manage to find one.

This is... crushing me. I can LITERALLY feel what's left of my heart just dragging across the floor.

I'm gonna... go play Survival Instinct and wonder what could've been as I wonder what I did wrong to only have Norman Reedus in one terrible game.

this gif.....this gif sums up your feelings.

That's actually a pretty accurate .gif of my feelings summed up.

Thank you, friend.

P.T. Is still on my hard drive, I hope they don't render it unplayable. But at the same time I don't have the heart to play it now either.
What i'd like to know is; are Konami just going to sit on the silent hill IP like a wannabe EA? And do they keep the FOX engine that Kojima was obviously very proud of? I read somewhere that Konami may have intentions of turning MGS into a yearly release IP in an attempt to follow Assassins Creed's success, which Kojima would quite certainly not want to be lumbered with. It seems a depressingly likely situation.

Damn... Just damn... I hadn't been this excited about silent hill for over a decade. This feels like Mega Man Legends 3 all over again.

Just thought this felt relevant
