I would totally accept that, but I know there are tons of gamers out there that are much better than I at discovering such requirements. Since none of them has yet been able to produce a hard-and-fast set of conditions for gaining the katana in all this time, I firmly believe that it has little or nothing to do with gameplay.

I don't know. I have every extra item, every ending on one memory card, and I've played and beaten the game more then 12 times now, my games screwed up!

I beat it on hard(using the laser gun) and didn't get it

perhaps next time I'll try getting the worst ending and see if that works

Just try to get every ending possible including the ufo........you should see it in the background of your end game stats by then and unlock the door.

Oh I have every ending. I got the UFO ending and got the hyper spray, and I've gotten every other ending aswell. :(

I saved a million times and I still got the katana. I haven't played for a long time, but it was unlocked my second or third time through. And I play on easy because I don't know if my heart can handle the stress of the harder modes, lol.
Maybe you just need to start from scratch. That is all I can suggest.

I got it on my 3rd completion after getting endings in this order: Bad+, Bad, Good. This could prove the theory that you have to get a bad ending and then a good ending on the next play through. Another interesting thing to note is that i think the completion in which i received it was the first time i had gold for my shooting style...Maybe that's a connection?

That doesn't work, though, because I achieved it after my first time through the game, having earned the Bad+ ending.

Hm...can anyone disprove or prove the 'gold' for shooting style theory? That's the only other thing i can think of that was unique to that specific playthrough :? Or maybe it has something to do with number of enemies killed...Which would explain why people who are using the hyper blaster fail to get it...I refuse to believe it's random.

i think its confusing, because maybe there IS something to the different versions theory. because i specifically remember looking at a guide to get it.

sorry, not to beat a dead horse, but noones confirmed the different versions. and you probably havent found the coolest weapon in the game yet....*sniff*

I've been playing the digital copy of Silent Hill, all new data of course, and I'm trying to get the Katana as well. So far I've gotten the Good+ and UFO ending and am playing the game on Hard mode but the door hasn't been unlocked. I'll get the other endings and try again.

On my old data I did eventually get the Katana.
This is how I did it:
Easy mode: Good+ --> (Next Fear) Normal Mode: UFO ending --> (Next Fear) Hard Mode --> Hyper Blaster and Katana unlocked.

This was also after beating the game various times and getting all the other endings on different playthroughs.

I know that "number of saves" has nothing to do with getting the katana because I always save every time I come across (it's habit, really). I always believed that you could only use it on hard mode, but I'm not sure if that's really the case (I've only been able to get it on Hard Mode, but I don't always check that door otherwise, so..)

^I don't think it matters what ending, this is how I have always gotten mine:

Play Easy Mode- check the door in the doghouse. Harry will was "Its locked." Get whatever ending you want.
Next Fear- Normal Mode- check door, it will be unlocked go in and get your katana on. Get whatever ending.
Next Fear-Hard Mode- start the game w/ Hyper Blaster in your inventory. Go into doghouse and door will be unlocked.

Though on the PC, my friend said, he wouldn't check the door on Easy Mode, but wait until on Normal Mode, check it then when he play on Hard Mode the door will be unlocked. If he checked it on Easy Mode then get it on Normal Mode, the door is locked again on Hard Mode. :?

Did that make any sense at all? IDK.

I doubt it. I check all doors as a matter of policy, and I got the Katana in the second playthrough.

At this point, I think it's pretty much confirmed to be random.

Well yeah but my vote goes go to "luck" instead of random :( Image

Exactly, you will only get it every other time you check the door. If you checked it on playthrough A, the door is unlocked on playrhtough B, but not on the playthrough C. You'll get it in the second playthrough, but not the third. Or at least that is how my friend has reported it.
