Minecraft for PS4 to get ‘The Simpsons’ skin pack tomorrow

Konami signals USA exit (sort of)

This week several facts have come to light with big implications for Konami's future. One has to do with their upcoming (axed) horror game "Silent Hills". Another has to do with the New York Stock Exchange. A third fact surfaced this past May - and we'll see it pop up again soon: Konami's profits.

Silent Hills Cancelled

Silent Hills Cancelled

One bit of bad news, one bit of good. First, Silent Hills has been cancelled. In a statement this morning, Konami has suggested that while they will remain "committed to new Silent Hill titles," Silent Hills will be no more. This is the project that was announced recently through a tiny game called "P.T.", short for "Playable Trailer." This terrifying miniature tale had the user walking through a hallway time after time until they'd found a way out of the darkness. A title lie therein.

Gears of War Remastered inbound for Xbox One

The launch of a new console generation is usually an opportune time to relaunch well-loved titles, tweaked a bit to the technology of the present age. We've seen that happen with the rather contentious Halo: Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One. And now it seems that Gears of War will be getting that same treatment, but to a lesser degree.

Nintendo is ditching one of its best ideas

For a company that relies so much on the legacy appeal of its much-loved former games and consoles, Nintendo appears surprisingly eager to cut ties with the past. Nintendo Virtual Console for the Wii U has long offered a selection of classic Super Nintendo titles for those wanting to do a little SNES reminiscing. Now, though, it seems the digital shelves will no longer be stocked with new (old) games, as attentions move elsewhere.
