Hideo Kojima on Silent Hills: "We want you to s*** your pants."
Hideo Kojima has revealed a few more details about Silent Hills at the Metal Gear Solid Gamescom press conference.
Chief among these is that Kojima Productions is developing it. We knew the studio was involved due to its logo appearing at the end of P.T., but now we know this won’t be a Castlevania: Lords of Shadow situation where the studio is merely overseeing another company’s development.
Kojima also stated his intent to make the game as scary as possible. “We originally wanted you to pee your pants,” he said. “Now we want you to s*** your pants.”
The enigmatic director said that he expected P.T. - which simply stands for “Playable Teaser” by the way - to take a week to solve, but instead some British lady and a few of her friends cracked the case in a couple of hours.
He did slip in one incredibly obscure hint that nobody got, however. The fake developer making P.T. was called 7780 Studios. It turns out this gets its name from the square kilometer area of Shizuoka, a Japanese prefecture that’s name literally translates to “Quiet Hills”. In fact, many Japanese people simply refer to the horror game series as Shizuoka.
Microsoft Confirms Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox Exclusivity Deal "has a duration"
As we guessed, Rise of the Tomb Raider will be a limited or timed exclusive for the Xbox One.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer has confirmed to Eurogamer that Microsoft’s controversial exclusivity deal for Rise of the Tomb Raider “has a duration”.
However, he declined to confirm how long that duration is set for.
Our guess is a 6 month window. How much Microsoft paid for this is anyones guess. Expect an April 2016 release with Crystal Dynamics gushing in PR "We always intended to share our creative vision to our loyal PS and PC fanbase"
