Silent Hill: Book of Memories to miss March 27 release

Konami has confirmed to RipTen that Silent Hill: Book of Memories has been delayed, and will no longer release on March 27. Various retailers have a placeholder set for May 31, which oddly enough is a Thursday. Konami hasn’t provided a new release date, and has said to “stay tuned for a more formal announcement.” This this the second delay for the game, which was originally scheduled for release alongside Vita’s launch in February.

    It makes sense in a bad way: They don´t trust the game. Really.

    You can think there are actually too much big hits from the launch that actually are still beating themselves in sales. So I saw normal to delay the game from the 22 February launch. You can even see that there won´t be too much games for launch this months.

    But man… May 31? What the fuck is wrong with Konami? It feels like they really don´t trust it, and everyone can feel it.

    I saw normal in Sony to delay Gravity Daze so late, in june, so it could have a good oportunity to deliver great sales on an empty period of games releases.

    But with Book Of Memories, that resemble what appears nothing but an horrible spin-off based on weak mechanics…

    It feels like Konami it´s going to have a big problem with the saga, no matter how Downpour sells, as the game still doesn´t find the good clasic qualities and isn´t really exceptional, Silent Hill HD looks horrible (and doesnt bring The Room, fuck off!) and this one… Man, this one was so disappointing since the first pic that I really thought Konami just doesn´t give a fuck about this saga anymore.

    I thought Book Of Memories would be something like Obscure. It´s more like “Imagine: Surviving in a fantastic horror tale”

    I didnt even know this had a release date, let alone originally one so soon, or the fact it was meant to be a launch title. Cant say Konami are really hyping it.

    I really hope that KONAMI can be more serious on Silent Hill. Maybe they don’t care about it but the fans do care about this horror game!

    Konami dropped the ball completely on Silent Hill. Since the day the original Team Silent was disbanded and the series went into the hands of random western developers, things haven’t been quite the same. I must say I enjoyed Origins on PSP and somewhat managed to like Shattered Memories on Wii, but that’s it.

    Its a shame Silent Hill doesnt have its own Kojima, keeping his or her thumb on the franchise. After Team Silent got disbanded the series was pretty much left to the corporate side of Konami, unprotected and ready to be plundered. You can bet that this would happen to MGS in a shot if Kojipro wasnt there to shoo away the vultures.
