Konami is working on a new Silent Hill video game for “next-gen consoles,” which we’ll take to mean the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. That’s despite it being the “next-generation” for almost five years already. Surely, nay certainly, it’s now the “current generation”? Anyway, moving swiftly on…Konami announced Saw II as well. Makes you so excited you want to gauge your eyes out doesn’t it?

Konami announced the development of the new Silent Hill game yesterday in Frankfurt, Germany. Eurogamer Germany attended the event and the only information they could garner was that the game would be on “next-gen consoles.” Useful. Hell, the new game could be coming to the Nintendo Wii for all we know. And maybe it should, since the Wii’s Shattered Memories whipped the hell out of Homecoming on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

The publisher was kind enough to announce another game for consoles — Saw II. Splendid. Developed by the very same Zombie Studios, is set between the first two Saw films and will be released this October.

  1. Saw II will probably suck, but I have a shred of hope for Silent Hill.

  2. Maybe this is the nextgen Silent Hill we are all hoping for…

  3. Konami really need to put this “SAW” franchise to bed for good its a waste of time and resources, Silent Hill on the other hand has promise.

  4. No more SAW please. It came it SAW, and never conquered. Silent Hill 1-4 took me to more darker and thrilling places than any other game I can think of. I like to act like Homecoming was just a joke, because the other games were awesome at what they were. Survival Horror at its finest. Please for the next installment, let the Japanese Develop for it, as I lost hope when The Western Developers failed to capture the true essence and atmosphere of SH. The Japanese know horror, and have proved it.Silent Hill 1-4 took me to more darker and thrilling places than any other game I can think of.

    It probably sucks, video game, self infliction is better experienced in real life lol. Seriously its not like your going to get involved in the gameplay with all this self infliction stuff, Everybody knows its just a video game so it’ll be like minigames with the Saw skin on it.

  7. Saw will probaly be crap but i have hope for silent hill. with todays consles they should be able to make a very atmospheric game just like the film

    Silent Hill has sucked since the fourth game. Why beat a dead horse? At leas Saw II has potential.

  9. @silenthillsucks: potential? where?

    the firs SAW game sucked and so shall this one

  10. I didn’t want to ruin my SAW experiance with the movies, so I never picked up the game 😛 but this one will probably suck too.
