that makes no sense. changing your name to celebrate your history? there has to be another reason. why do companies change their name when it's not that big of a difference? they'll still be known as konami to everyone.

i mean i get why Facebook changed it's name to Meta because they wanted a fresh slate after all the bullshit they've done. While I'll always call them Facebook, because fuck them, at least they went for something completely different.

OK, I get that we're mostly joking here about all the horrible names Konami deserves to label itself as for not being Konami anymore, but just to be clear, Konami already changed its name.

They were "Konami Holdings Corporation"
Now they are "Konami Group Corporation".

It's the most boring name-change of all time, so I get that people glossed over it, but it is right there in the article.

They're not changing the name "Konami", they're changing the rest of the name.

One step closer to opening a multi-million dollar pachinko arcade/legal casino and developing region exclusive Japanese smart phones with advanced releases of mobile classics like Angry Vulcan Raven Birds or Psycho Mantis Trvial Pursuit on their new webstore. Their merchandising team can continue to promote themed Silent Hill merchandise, beating and buttfucking the Monster like Pyramid Head for his 7,000th outing.

What is Konami? Just a miserable little pile of Abandoned IPs.
 
Konami Group Corporation... As if their reputation didn't already take a nosedive in the recent years... Might as well call it Konami Anti-Consumer Conglomerate or something.

They’re probably gambling over what the name will be. At their own casinos with their casino money. That’s what a company who focuses on gambling does.

How many bad ideas can one company come up with. Let's fire Kojima, Let's then make a spin off of our most popular franchise made by Kojima. We are 50 years old...yea let's just change our identity. Let's never make another good contra game ever.
