    Default Silent Hill 5 on PS2 also new SH for PS3

    just s quick rumor post:
    Now that Silent Hill 4 is completely finished and set for release on Sep. 8 in North America, development on SH5 has begun to gain speed. Currently titled ‘Silent Hill 5: Shadows of the Past’ (The subtitle will most likely be dropped or changed), Konami wants to return to the same idea of SH2, which means they want a powerful story unrelated to other games in the series yet still ties into the dark history of SH. So what is the story? Like the previous games, Konami wants to keep it as secret as possible. But, they do have a brief synopsis which they’ve sent out to some shareholders who wanted to know what Konami was up to in the future. Here’s what it read:

    In 2006, gamers across the globe will return to Silent Hill for the final time on the PS2 in Silent Hill 5: Shadows of the Past. In the first time for a SH game, players will play through the game in flashbacks, retelling the main character’s harrowing trip through through a town worse than hell.'

    Here’s a little more backstory for the game: The game starts with the main character being held in a mental institution. The flashbacks occur when the doctors interview your character and ask him exactly what happened in Silent Hill. Expect many twists and turns in the storyline, especially a big one at the end that supposedly has the Silent Hill team excited.

    Like the synopsis says, this will be the last SH on the PS2. It definetely won’t be the last of the series though, Konami wants another Silent Hill on the PS3 as soon as possible

    I love Konami. I finish up playing the excellent Silent Hill 3, jump on the internet later that day and find gamespot has a huge detailed preview of Silent Hill 4! Now Silent Hill 4 is coming out and 5 is already underway. Just as long as they keep making each game just as great I'll be very happy =D. They did majorly dissapoint me with Castlevania Lament though =\.

    Good stuff, looking forward to SH4 a lot. Played it a bit at E3 and really enjoyed what I played. And of course I'm a huge fan of the series as a whole so this is good news indeed

    I gotta play silent hill three still I think, heh. I went through a big survival binge and can't remember which games of which series I've played, but out of all of them, I think silent hill is my favorite.

    Silent hill is one of my favorite series of games. Konami really did a great job in 1up-ing capcom's RE series, which is still awesome too.

    I'm trying to finish up Shenmue before I dive head first into SH4 (I got the japanese version, which has full english) The rumors of SH5 are nothing but pleasing to hear, I'm glad that they have no intention to stop the series. SH2 is by far my favorite, played through and got ALL the endings and weapons, only did SH3 once and SH1 twice.

    I wish that the translation project that some people were doing with the GBA SIlent Hill Play Novel was finished, would have been cool to be able to read all of those (I think there were 3 scenarios?) There was Harry, Cybil and then one that you Downloaded via the mobile GBA thing that I know nothing about... can anyone shed any light on that?

    All I know about that downloadable extra on Play Novel was that it would have let you experience events from Alessa's P.O.V. Which of course is just incomprehensibly awesome.
