How legit is this insider? Hope it's true but am expecting nothing. 90% of the time it's nothing. No one should give Dusk Golem or this other fella attention ever again if so.

Not. People have learned absolutely nothing out of the PS5 tech deep dive and the exodus of 95 % of proclaimed insiders. They just created new accounts and continue with their shit. Case in point an "insider" that has joined Era one and a half months ago. It's the exact same modus operandi as with 12 TF PS5, somebody says it, then a bunch of retards jump on the train and pretend to now something as well.

Another bullshit Resetera insider, what a shocker. Stop posting this bullshit here. Konami already debunked it. Dusk golem is a full of shit loser. Nothing to see here.
Yeah, that KatharsisT dude seems especially suspicious after what he said about Death Stranding and its supposedly troubled development

Just wishful thinking at this point. I don't believe in anything from these so called "insiders" , especially when it comes to ps5.

I don't know when did this turn into a Kylie Minogue thread, but it certainly is a pleasant turn of events! :messenger_relieved:
Figured this will be just another attack of the xbox fans like ps5 insiders are full of shit and ps5 is shit who would want to release games on it etc like it is with every ps5 thread that starts out with some rumors or anything positive and xbox fans come in cuz they have nothing else to do given they have teraflops but no games well we know the drill by now.
So kylie it is at least it gives us pleasure😎

I've been keeping an eye on this rumor for a couple weeks now, the guy has been vetted apparently on Era (don't know how much of a boost that gives to his credibility) but he's been a little flip floppy on its release now he's said it could be June instead he also gave some info on Death Stranding development which didn't add up since there was lingering evidence all over the place that his statement is BS.

Zero credibility, Konami debunked it. Silent Hill reboot in PS5 is not happening at all.

Also, please stay on topic and post Kylie photos and gifs :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Let's hope it's true, and i hope Sony actually manages to buy the IP, Silent Hill and MGS are too good to be at the mercy of mutha fuckin konami

Here let me say what the xbox fanboys will say if this happens. "NO! They're going to turn it into some cinematic third person walking sim!"

Too bad there will be no E3 this year, I remember that I was amazed when the E3 trailer for Silent Hill 2 was shown, it blew my mind! I would hope to see a trailer that good for PS5, i do not care for remasters, but remakes and reboots are most welcomed.

Didn't Konami say it wasn't in the works?

Why would they announce it outside of Sony's event?

I mean.....if anything, how many times has any major AAA title been announced randomly to a reporter based on confirming or denying some leak of something? We'd know when everything was coming out if that was the case.

Be like "and one last thing Capcom, there is a few rumors about this one game you might have in development called Dino Crisis remake, Dino Crisis 3 *cause they only made 2, don't @me, Onimusha remake, Onimusha 5, Okami 2 Yami's revenge, Okami Zero (A pup named Kami), SFVI, SSFVI, God Hand remake, God Hand 2 and Monster Hunter World 2.............so what you got to say about that?"

I'm really skeptical but if true, I hope it's a "soft reboot" as some rumors seem to be indicating, i.e. a new game in the same universe/timeline.

The only insiders I believe now are Zhuge, Jason, and Shinobi. The rest clearly dont know shit.
They have to earn that rep.

Yup, this. Anytime people like Jason or Zhuge mention anything online in their forecast, later on the information gets out.

Dusk Golem is at it again, if this is true it's gonna be awesome!

So to lay the detaila of this put straight:
-It is developed by Sony Japan Studios & will be PS5 exclusive.
-Toyama is directing,
-Akira Yaomoka is composing, Masahiro Ito is doing art, various Siren/Gravity Rush devs & some others working on it.
-This has nothing to do with Kojima or Silent Hills, that probably is not happening.
-Sony is NOT buying IPs, that's bullshit.
-The game is NOT a remake, it is a soft reboot, made so it can be someone's first SH game.
-The game is playable & has a demo that will be shown around after reveal.
-The details of this are not murky, there should be no miscommunication.

Wccftech is at it again i see. Making an article based on a post from an "insider" without even bothering to tell us the history of this "insider", and why we should take him seriously.

(And before you tell me, i'm not criticizing KatharsisTs reputability as an insider, just the fact that there might be a lot of people out there (like me) who never heard about him before reading this article)

I'd be down for a reboot. I've never played the Silent Hill series before, and I'm not too interested in going back to the really old titles. I can only imagine how good these titles are going to look on PS5.

At this point i kind of wish sony would just do the reveal of stuff, I have no problem waiting for whatever they have planned to show/talk about, but it sucks waiting until the 11th hour then having a major leak after waiting so long. I think after this week im respectfully staying out of some of these threads theres just too much smoke going into the air now for it not to be a fire.

Play Silent Hill 2 however you can. It is a masterpiece and I have zero faith in any modern developer doing it justice in a remake or a remaster. As evidenced by the remaster they already fucked up.

The way that MS were putting horror games front and center in their presentation felt to me that they were trying to get in front of something Sony have planned.

Phil Spencer was the insider all along?

So just the second one? Do I need to play 1 or 3 to enjoy it? I don't even know how many there are lol.

Is this Dusk Golem guy reliable? I can't follow all these random names.
There are a lot of skeptics with him but he's also been right about a bunch of things (which isn't really to his credit since he does come off as vague).

I need someone to chime in who's actually been following/keeping track of the dude, but I have noticed him getting a bunch of RE7, RE2, and RE3 details right. For that reason, I don't dismiss his claims, but I do take it all with a huge grain of salt. If this Silent Hill is being developed by Sony as a PS exclusive, that will go a long way towards him winning my support in the future.

I'm also watching his RE8 claims.
"Hallucinations, Occultism, insanity and not being able to trust others are huge thematics of the game."

Other than trust, those haven't really been themes in RE (we've had insane characters but that was usually just a character quirk; I'm also assuming the hallucinations and insanity are meant to apply to the protagonist). He also claims Chris is returning this game and that he's completely redesigned. We'll see.

So just the second one? Do I need to play 1 or 3 to enjoy it? I don't even know how many there are lol.
You don't need to play any other in the series to get SH2. He's right there. No remake will ever properly translate that game. The themes, symbolism, story, and atmosphere were all expertly crafted. That's the game that made me fall in love with the genre, and it is IMO the best horror game ever made.

Starting to notice quite a pattern. How they grabbed some nobodies to develop a game with a game mechanic so similar to Silent Hill wasn't a coincidence I'm sure.

The remaster was due to lost code. It would have been so much better, but they did not have access to the source code and had to make due. The community patched it well on the PC last I heard.
