 Post subject: SHV and TGS?

The Tokyo Games Show is coming soon and so far...

Konami has revealed a bit of their lineup which reveals the 0rigins PSP game... but no mention of SHV
http://silenthill5.net/2007/09/14/konam ... ill-v.html

But also something else that is intriguing is that in a recent 1UP podcast:
http://download.gamevideos.com/Podcasts/091407.mp3

It appears that Silent Hill V will be exclusive to PS3 in Japan... but will release on both PS3 and Xbox 360 in the West. If this is so, then it gives us the idea that PS3 is the lead console for the game. I haven't listened to the podcast myself but that's what's going around. Give it a listen. I will later tonight...

You mean because the GBA continuely outsells the 360, and it would be a huge waste of time and budget to port it to 360 in japan?

I don't think it's the porting that's the problem. They're already doing it for North America and Europe anyway... more like they won't have to bother with manufacturing 360 discs and marketing for Japan.

Okay now THAT'S just weird. I don't think I've ever heard of a game, or anything really, being unconfirmed for its country of origin.

you're right.. that would be really weird.

I know the Japanese will always go with Sony or Nintendo over Microsoft, that's a given. but not even allowing for the game to be released on the 360 in their country? that's just absurd. if it did happen though, i'd just laugh.

I don't give a toss if it's not released on the 360, I'm more so commenting on the fact that it's unconfirmed at all, regardless of its release platform. The 360 doesn't tingle my genitals the way it does with some other folks, and I don't think I'll ever understand or be a part of this idea that one console dominates another.

They all do the same thing.
They all have the same purpose.
That's like arguing which pen is better.

well, you seem to be a bit misinformed about the consoles. There's a fighting game, Virtua Fighter 5, that's out for the PS3 right now. good game, but has no online capability for sony's console. so basically, you can only play amongst friends or by yourself on the same console. however, this same game is being released on 360 shortly and it looks exactly the same (if not better to some) and it has online capabilities. which means not only can you play alone or against your friends, but you can play against people worldwide on xbox live. plus there's there's also the possibility for extras with downloadble content. so while both consoles have the same purpose, one does more for you than the other.

a lot of people aren't crazy about the 360, but it'd due to their hatred of microsoft.

however,i don't really see how either version of SH5 is going to be better than the other. this is basically due to the type of game it is. however you never know, some extras may be available for the 360 version by way of xbox live.

She's not misinformed. She's just not buying into the console superiority bullshit.

No, she is. if she thinks that both the PS3 and the 360 are the same thing, and there's not really any difference between the two, she's mistaken. sure they both play games and they both serve the same purpose. however they both offer things the other does not (including exclusive games), which will influence a consumers decision when buying either of the two.

i'm not saying either console is superior than the other. all im saying is that there are things that both consoles offer that make each one stand out/apart from the other.

you tend to only see that console superiority bs with hardcore Sony fans.

oh god, that sounds really bad. I'm sure they will but if they don't that would speak volumes about the quality of the game.

Well, technically, Silent Hill 5 is owned by Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. (the American division of Konami), so I'm sure it'll be announced much later for Japan.

I don't think most people care whether it's announced for Japan or not, sadly. All that matters is that they get to play the game.

Skele: No problem. Sorry if I came off.. well, sorry that I WAS harsh. It's been a long day.

Burning Man: I just think it'd not only be, y'know, polite but a very fitting thing to announce it to soothe any potential worries. Lord knows no one likes missing out on good stuff. :| Just ask us about Lost Memories...

I believe it will show up in some form, maybe not with a booth since it is still in it's early stages but they might be giving private sessions with the game to some press. I mean No one really knew it was going to show up at E3, Konami didn't mention it was going to be at Lipsieg until close to that expo's date. So I wouldn't find it a bad thing if they aren't advertising it too much. If they show an unfinished game too early to the press they are going to trash it unfairly (doesn't that sound familiar? LOL!).

I expect that after TGS we aren't going to hear anything about this until Konami's gamers day, right now their focus is on Origins since that's the game that coming out soon. :mrgreen:
