Konami E3 2010 Press Conference – What we’re doing

Wednesday, 16th June 2010 21:26 GMT By Joe Anderson

Konami Logo

Pat and Nathan are buried under a pile of interviews somewhere in Los Angeles, so we will not be bringing you a live blog from the Komani event this evening.

That doesn’t mean you won’t get the news though as Steph, Johnny and Joe are watching the conference and are ready to pounce on anything juicy that gets announced.

Konami are expected to reveal a new Silent Hill tonight, and of course there will probably be more details on Metal Gear Rising, PES 11, Castlevania and there may even be some news on pink panties featuring Snake sneaking out the backside.

One can dream.

Whatever happens -  we are here to bring you the news.



  1. Gekidami

    Lets see this new Silent Hill then…

    #1 5 years ago

    Pretty dodgy live stream happening here

    #2 5 years ago
  3. onlineatron

    it’s one of the cheapest/awkward conferences I’ve ever seen

    #3 5 years ago
  4. Gekidami

    SAW2, the first one was apparently really poor so move on please.
    And yeah, their stage is pretty ridiculous.

  6. Gekidami

    lol no one there seems to care about NN3.

    #6 5 years ago
  7. SunKing

    lol, yeah. The conference is very subdued, tbh, and awkward.

    #7 5 years ago
  8. onlineatron

    Errgh, he paused for appluase… as if people care about his game. :/

    So awkward.

    #8 5 years ago
  9. Gekidami

    “You’ll be sucked” That got some laughs.

    #9 5 years ago
  10. onlineatron

    For all the wrong reasons…

    #10 5 years ago
  11. Erthazus

    The creator of Ninety nights or something thinks that he is awesome and his game is awesome, but in reality the game and he is a … Well you know my answer already.

    #11 5 years ago
  12. Stephany Nunneley

    Millions of troops in NNN apparently – why so few? :/

    #12 5 years ago
  13. onlineatron

    What’s with Konami’s 360 initiative?

    That’s N3, Castlevania:HOD and this game…all exclusives.

    #13 5 years ago
  14. Freek

    He just said slamin soundtrack without a hint of irony.

    These are the people who bring us Metal Gear and Silent Hill???? What the hell?

    #14 5 years ago
  15. onlineatron

    I have no idea what ‘Otamadius’ is… But this guy is incredibly well spoken.

    #15 5 years ago
  16. Erthazus

    BEST 360 SHOOTER and exclusive EVER!

    Did you see that?

    #16 5 years ago
  17. SunKing

    Maybe it’s Microsoft trying to take ground in Japan… again.

    #17 5 years ago
  18. SunKing

    This is just dire, really.

    #18 5 years ago
  19. onlineatron

    This guy reminds me of the 90s.

    look at his suit!

    #19 5 years ago
  20. Freek

    “getting to the bottom first is fun”
    Buddy, you’re already there.

    #20 5 years ago
  21. SunKing

    I know! Such an ill-fitting suit. :(

    #21 5 years ago
  22. onlineatron


    ‘Off the charts’

    If he says ‘word’ and ‘fresh’ I’ll swear he’s an extra from The Fresh Prince.

    #23 5 years ago
  24. Gekidami

    “The louder they cheer the faster you’ll go”? Is that a real game mechanic?

    #24 5 years ago
  25. Freek

    He’s on crack.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. Gekidami

    He’s batshit insane!

    #26 5 years ago
  27. onlineatron

    What on earth is happening here…

    #27 5 years ago
  28. daytripper

    gok wan after a few joints

    #28 5 years ago
  29. Stephany Nunneley

    #29 5 years ago
  30. onlineatron

    Konami have just won E3!

    #30 5 years ago
  31. SunKing

    I honestly can’t make out a word being said– and oh god they’re dancing on stage.

    #31 5 years ago
  32. Stephany Nunneley

    I am embarrassed to admit I am watching this.

    #32 5 years ago
  33. daytripper

    special in the one flew over the kojimas nest kind of way

    i’d be blushing if i was in that crowd

    #33 5 years ago
  34. Erthazus

    Jesus… Why i’m watching this.

    I think they won E3.

    #34 5 years ago
  35. onlineatron

    Is the guy in the orange his translator?

    #35 5 years ago
  36. Stephany Nunneley

    Tired of seeing folks OBVIOUSLY reading a teleprompter. Even the flammer.

    #36 5 years ago
  37. Gekidami

    And Pat didnt want to see this in person?! The crazy man!

    #37 5 years ago
  38. Freek

    Already the best thing out of E3, ever.

    #38 5 years ago
  39. SunKing

    Guaranteed animated gif/YouTube remix moment.

    #39 5 years ago
  40. onlineatron

    The guy in the orange sounds and looks like Raymond.

    ‘any questions…’

    Just one… WHAT THE FUCK?!

    #40 5 years ago
  41. Gekidami

    That crazy guy alone just won E3. And yeah, the obvious reading is annoying.

    #41 5 years ago
  42. Freek

    What? The? Fuck!

    #42 5 years ago
  43. Stephany Nunneley


    #43 5 years ago

    #46 5 years ago
  47. Joe Anderson

    Woo Glee /facepalm

    #47 5 years ago
  48. Gekidami

    Glee’ks? Seriously? I’ve never seen Glee and i’m glad.

    #48 5 years ago
  49. Freek

    Just keep repeating this: they make Metal Gear. It’s going to be okay, it’s just a phase, they have not gone mental.

    #49 5 years ago
  50. onlineatron

    All my dreams… come true at once.

    #50 5 years ago
  51. Gekidami

    Why is their show so low-end? Konami are hardly poor.

    And why am i now watching the news?

    #51 5 years ago
  52. Erthazus

    Jesus… This is fuckness and this word does not even exist…

    #52 5 years ago
  53. onlineatron

    Oh dear…

  56. Joe Anderson

    #56 5 years ago
  57. Stephany Nunneley

    I’m sorry, but if I were forced to go to this I would walk out. Fired or not.

    #57 5 years ago
  58. Gekidami

    Are they really singing or is it playback?

    #58 5 years ago
  59. onlineatron

    Is that Mika?

    #59 5 years ago
  60. Joe Anderson

    This is worse than torture.

    #60 5 years ago
  61. Freek

    Live choir singing. LEGENDARY!!

    #61 5 years ago
  62. DaMan

    excellent conference!

    #62 5 years ago
  63. Gekidami

    Dont lie Stephany, you’d be forcing your way on stage to join in. :D

    #63 5 years ago
  64. Anders

    I want more footage of the audience. I want to see their faces.

    #64 5 years ago
  65. Erthazus

    #65 5 years ago
  66. onlineatron

    #66 5 years ago
  67. Stephany Nunneley

    @63 – Only after about 5 ciders ;)

    #67 5 years ago
  68. Gekidami

    “Somebody to love!”

    #68 5 years ago
  69. onlineatron

    Wasn’t that boy out of key at the end?

    #69 5 years ago
  70. DaMan

    day one for me!

    #70 5 years ago
  71. Stephany Nunneley

    Wow that kid with the afro – “You were a little pitchy at the end dog”

    #71 5 years ago
  72. daytripper

    i wish i was dead

    #72 5 years ago
  73. SunKing

    Wahay! Encore performance at the Konami booth at three! Who’s with me?

    #73 5 years ago
  74. onlineatron


    The conference has gone from awful to…. No, it’s still awful, but who doesn’t want to play a game about spinning tops?!


    #74 5 years ago
  75. DaMan

    … uh.

    #75 5 years ago
  76. onlineatron


    We march on LA now!

    #76 5 years ago
  77. Anders

    “Beyblade is back and hotter than ever.”

    I just love the enthusiasm that dude is showing right now.

    #77 5 years ago
  78. Freek

    I’m flat out of superlatives, it’s that amazing.

    #78 5 years ago
  79. Gekidami

    I never noticed how much crap Konami actually make. Atleast they’ll be showing Castlevania:LoS at one point.

    #79 5 years ago
  80. onlineatron

    You’ve got to hand it to Konami, their press conference is going from (shitty) game, to (shitty) game, to (shitty) game.

    That sort of flow was absent from other conferences.

    #80 5 years ago
  81. Joe Anderson

    They all look like they don’t want to be there.

    #81 5 years ago
  82. Erthazus

    So Microsoft and Ubisoft is not the worst…

    #82 5 years ago
  83. Gekidami

    There are like a million Wii Sports for Kinect.

    #83 5 years ago
  84. onlineatron

    pew pew pew

    #84 5 years ago
  85. DaMan

    well, definetely no Suikodens now I guess..

    #85 5 years ago
  86. Freek

    Pff, forget the 3DS, keep your Xbox slim.
    They will be talking about this for years!

    #86 5 years ago
  87. onlineatron

    Finally! A decent looking title.

    #87 5 years ago
  88. SunKing

    Well, whatever this is, it looks pretty good. :D

    #88 5 years ago
  89. DaMan

    wow, a videogame!

    #89 5 years ago
  90. onlineatron

    This guy looks dead inside.

    #90 5 years ago
  91. Erthazus


    #91 5 years ago
  92. onlineatron


    #92 5 years ago
  93. Wizard

    @82 don’t include Ubisoft on that they did a good job!

    #93 5 years ago
  94. onlineatron

    He’s looks like an ugly Jake Gyllenhaal

    #94 5 years ago
  95. DaMan

    Silent Hill Karaoke?

    #95 5 years ago
  96. Gekidami

    If this is what i think it is its already been shown and uses Move.

    EDIT: No its not. Damn, still no idea what that mystery Move game is.

    #96 5 years ago
  97. Stephany Nunneley

    @95 – :D

    #97 5 years ago
  98. Anders

    Did Ubisoft do a good job? Did we watch the same conference? :)

    #98 5 years ago
  99. onlineatron

    and the other an ugly Robert Downey Jr

    #99 5 years ago
  100. Erthazus

    Silent Hill? Looks like an Alan Wake Rip Off

    #100 5 years ago
  101. onlineatron

    I’d love this to have MOVE support.

    #101 5 years ago
  102. Anders

    Huh. No subtitle.

    #102 5 years ago
  103. DaMan

    meh, same old.

    #103 5 years ago
  104. Wizard

    looks like silent hill have something to offer.

    #104 5 years ago
  105. Gekidami

    Third person then, not a FPS as rumoured.

    #105 5 years ago
  106. Freek

    Okay, that looked decent.

    Annd now it’s rack to engrish.

    #106 5 years ago
  107. SunKing

    Music is pretty good, but the character models and animation aren’t great.

    #107 5 years ago
  108. Anders

    What is this? MAD TV? :D

    #108 5 years ago
  109. onlineatron


    The credit track is so haunting.

    #109 5 years ago
  110. Freek


    #110 5 years ago
  111. Phoenixblight

    Sweet Jebus that looks far better than Homecoming and they got the guy that does Dexter soundtrack which is +100 from me.

    I honestly can’t wait and also relieved that the rumor of the new Silent Hill being FPS being false.

    #111 5 years ago
  112. DaMan

    Castlevania may cry?

    #112 5 years ago
  113. daytripper -”thanks everyone and have a great E3″

    #113 5 years ago
  114. onlineatron

    That looked… interesting.

    ‘I hope you rike it’

    #114 5 years ago
  115. The Hindle

    Dexter is amazing the same cant be said about Konami

    #115 5 years ago
  116. onlineatron

    YEY! Rising.

    #116 5 years ago
  117. Gekidami

    Rising! The same trailer :(

    #117 5 years ago
  118. DaMan

    same stuff yeah.

    #118 5 years ago
  119. Freek

    They made a word people. A whole word!

    #119 5 years ago
  120. onlineatron

    details :)

    #120 5 years ago
  121. DaMan


    #121 5 years ago
  122. onlineatron

    So… They’ve created item drops?!


    #122 5 years ago
  123. onlineatron

    Kojima really has little to do with this project does he?

    Quite surprising.

    #123 5 years ago
  124. Gekidami

    He’s got nothing to do with it.

    #124 5 years ago
  125. daytripper

    Show something for fuck sake

    #125 5 years ago
  126. onlineatron

    IGN are showing Brink in their live stream… it’s more interesting than this.

    #126 5 years ago
  127. Gekidami

    I doubt we’ll see more. Info is good though.

    #127 5 years ago
  128. DaMan

    yawn, at least no cutscenes this time I guess.

    #128 5 years ago
  129. SunKing

    It’s all about the controls, which they themselves have just said they haven’t figured out yet. :S

    #129 5 years ago
  130. Wizard

    thank you onlineatron, see you suckers!!

    #130 5 years ago
  131. Stephany Nunneley

    Per PAT: Just met someone who said the Konami conference is being hosted by a “gay, Japanese retard”

    #131 5 years ago
  132. Gekidami

    Not hosted lol.

    And theres a goddamn cowboy on stage!

    #132 5 years ago
  133. DaMan

    why’s he wearing that hat?

    #133 5 years ago
  134. onlineatron

    I wish it was hosted by him!

    #134 5 years ago
  135. Gekidami


    That game “looks amazing”? :S

    #135 5 years ago
  136. onlineatron


    For impromptu tent scenes.

    #136 5 years ago
  137. SunKing

    I hope this Castlevania isn’t multiplayer-only. :S

    Yeah, it doesn’t look “amazing”. When I first saw the screenshots, I thought they looked a bit crap.

    #137 5 years ago
  138. onlineatron

    How frustrating and soul destroying must it be to have to wait for some body to translate your language.

    #138 5 years ago
  139. SunKing

    Bah, cinematic trailer. Boo. :(

    #139 5 years ago
  140. DaMan

    Prince of Castlevania

    #140 5 years ago
  141. Gekidami

    I just heard Captain Picard.

    #141 5 years ago
  142. onlineatron

    ‘It’s too late, i’ve seen everything, i’ve seen it all’.

    God Bless Sir. Patrick Stewart

    #142 5 years ago
  143. The Hindle

    What kind of interviews can we expect Steph?

    #143 5 years ago
  144. DaMan

    the artsyle that is, I don’t like it.

    #144 5 years ago
  145. The Hindle

    shit is Lords of shadow on someone talk me through it

    #145 5 years ago
  146. SunKing

    Woah, some pretty awesome acting talent behind this game!

    #146 5 years ago
  147. SunKing

    Just a bunch of CGI, Hindle.

    #147 5 years ago
  148. onlineatron

    They sure know how to make a trailer!

    (perhaps this is Kojima’s influence).

    #148 5 years ago
  149. onlineatron


    The majority of that was in-game.

    #149 5 years ago
  150. The Hindle

    Castlevania is one of most anticipated games of this year please dont be shit

    #150 5 years ago
  151. Erthazus

    Lors Of Shadow if you ask me looks OK…

    God Of Warish… a little bit…

    #151 5 years ago
  152. Gekidami

    It was in-game engine but not actual gameplay. Looks good honnestly.

    #152 5 years ago
  153. onlineatron

    This music sounds like The Police.

    #153 5 years ago
  154. DaMan


    #154 5 years ago
  155. SunKing

    Sorry, yes, there was in-game footage, but it was in-game cinematics, was what I meant to say.

    #155 5 years ago
  156. zoopdeloop

    Seems like Gaia was put on a diet(and jewellery) :P
    Why is this called a Castlevania again?

    #156 5 years ago
  157. Erthazus


    1) Nintendo
    2) EA
    3) Sony


    4) Microsoft
    5) Ubisoft
    6) Konami

    #157 5 years ago
  158. Gekidami

    It looked like it had vampires. Castlevania is about vampires, right?

    #158 5 years ago
  159. DaMan

    Konami was the lamest one, yeah.

    #159 5 years ago
  160. Phoenixblight

    Looks interesting, I think I will wait to see what the consensus for the game will be. Kojima is not working on it he is just the executive producer like he is in the Rising Development, which could mean anything.

    #160 5 years ago
  161. Gekidami

    It means that his name has just been stapled to the folder.

    #161 5 years ago
  162. Erthazus

    @Gekidami, Castlevania is about classsic horror monster including vampires, zombies and all 60′s,70′s monsters from movies.

    #162 5 years ago
  163. zoopdeloop

    It doesn’t feel like one though…plus the story doesn’t match.Twilight is about vampires too but it has nothing to do with Castlevania :P

    #163 5 years ago
  164. DaMan

    the artsyle ruins it, srsly. Castle of Persia.

    the protagonist in particular.

    #164 5 years ago
  165. onlineatron

    1) Nintendo – Zelda, Kirby, 3DS, Kid Icurus.

    2) Sony – Portal 2, inFamous 2, Killzone 3, Kevin Butler, Sorcery.

    3) Ubisoft – Ghost Recon, Driver, RAYMAN!, Dust, AC:B.

    4) EA – Need for Speed, Crysis, Bulletstorm

    5) Microsoft – Gears 3, Fable III, Your Shape (showed tech well).

    HOWEVER… Konami elevated to an ethereal plain above the first position… SPEECH IMPEDED, GAY, JAPANESE DANCER FTW!

    #165 5 years ago
  166. The Hindle

    I dont know the reception Castlevainia has been getting has been postitive, ive read a few E3 previews.

    #166 5 years ago
  167. AHA-Lambda

    WOAH! i’m away for a few hours and a miss ac onference aparrently WORSE than MS?

    What happened?

    #167 5 years ago
  168. Gekidami

    No, it was awesome. This guy came out and demoed this dancing game… Long story short he won E3.

    He’s this years Translator-san.

    #168 5 years ago
  169. Erthazus

    @AHA-Lambda don’t waste your time. It is worse even then Ubisoft.

    #169 5 years ago
  170. AHA-Lambda

    @168 lol k i need to see that at least

    @169 huh? How is that possible! O_O

    all i know so far is a silent hill game, neverdead and saw 2 =/

    #170 5 years ago
  171. Gekidami

    They also gave some info on Rising if thats your thing.

    #171 5 years ago
  172. AHA-Lambda

    oh sweet :) any hint of a date?

    #172 5 years ago
  173. Stephany Nunneley

    @163 – “Twilight is about vampires too but it has nothing to do with Castlevania” – :D :D
