The lights are on
Many attendees of Konami Gamers Night were already heading upstairs for
hands-on demos when they were instructed to return to their seats for
"one last surprise." What they saw didn't explain much, outside of the
fact that a new Silent Hill is coming.The brief trailer shows a
man wandering around the trademark fog of Silent Hill, being startled
by crows and an unknown, snarling menace. It ended with the text "The
Silence Ends." No other information was given, so it's up in the air
whether this is a sequel or possibly a remake of some sort. We'll keep
you updated as we hear more.

Please be on PS3/360 and let me have weapons to beat on the baddies. No more running crap please.
hope is on 360!
Unfortunately, I think it'll be the last installment. I wonder if it'll be a remake of the first Silent Hill?
Anyone who knows me knows that I'm a huge Silent Hill fan. Absolutely love the franchise (except for the movie, which was pretty bad) and this has made my day.
If this really is the final entry in the series, then I hope Team Silent is behind it so it could end on the highest note possible. Although, what if it means something completely different. Like, the evil from SH escapes to the rest of the world and causes chaos? Hmmm?
I just hope this game is being developed by Konami and not a different developer.
Actually, Treestump, that might make sense with the whole "end the silence" thing (Not many people know much about Silent Hill, so nobody goes there, or something). I'd like to see that.
As for the whole "last game" thing, that would be a pretty ballsy move by Konami, killing off a pretty successful franchise, and one of the key names in survival horror. I don't think they'd actually do that. Oh, well. Guess we've gotta wait for Konami to break the silence first.
well. i hope it's like shattered memories, but for ps3 only. and with minimal melee and gunplay (bullets aren't just in all kinds of odd places, you actually have to think about where to look, or miss out. breakable weapons that you can't just grab a million of. limted to one or two. weapons show on character and affects how fast he (or she) reacts. monsters don't go down so easily, as in if you are ambushed you have no other chose but to run. no going at it rambo style. oh and guns jam. sorry i'm a huge fan who has been dissappointed for a couple of years.
silent hill sucks now, ever since american developers took over it went down hill.
Well, the US developers haven't really "taken over" the franchise, given that they've only made 3 games, one made by a different studio, but yeah, the US games haven't been as good. Sucks, too. I was hoping Shattered Memories would be good.
HOLY HELL YES!!!!! Biggest SH fan ever!!! I cannot wait. I think this has to be 360/PS3 title. I dont really like what they did with Shattered Memories, making it for Wii. SH has always been on the PlayStation and Xbox platforms. I dont know if Climax or Double Helix is handling the game. I sure as hell know that Team Silent isnt making the game (feeling sad as I type this), but I would love to see Konami's other development house, Kojima Productions develop the next Silent Hill.
i hope its a console version
sounds like it could be the final 'silent hill' to come out, suggested from the "the silence ends", it's still quite surprising that they are going to make another game, hope they make the game well, not like the last one, but still hope it is like the combination of resident evil and Alan wake, that would be an awesome game, will have to wait any way.
Good point Reiner.
Maybe this is the end of the series, and if it is let's hope it turns out to have some good sales, would hate for the finally to disappoint like Homecoming.
We need a reboot to this series. SH2 is by far one of my favorite survival horror games of all time. We need more in terms of a GOOD story with deep, disturbing psychological elements. Listen Konami, those are the elements that make your games stand out. Don't forget about them.
I'm hoping this is good.
Wow...another game? I can't wait! This is one of my favorite series.
I like all of the consoles Silent Hill games, so this should be no different.
Be it the last of it's kind or not. The past few I haven't really enjoy that much.
I don't know why everyone hates on Homecoming, I really enjoyed that game. To me the only thing that makes a good Silent Hill game is the atmosphere, if they can nail that everything else is secondary.
Holy crap. That trailer sounds great, and I'm just about ready for another Silent Hill title by now (actually - I don't think there's a time when I'm NOT ready for a new Silent Hill). Count this girl excited.
