Konami Announces Silent Hill: Shattered Memories For PSP, PS2, Wii

We always like to hear about new survival/horror titles simply because there isn't exactly an overabundance of titles that fit in the niche genre.

Konami has announced Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for the PSP, PS2 and Wii; GameZine.co.uk initially predicted it would be called "Shattered Dreams" and a Wii exclusive, but that was a little inaccurate. Basically, Shattered Memories is a quirky remake of the original Silent Hill on the PlayStation; it's the same story, but you will view it from different angles. The characters will show up in different places and give the player different responses, even though you'll still play as the same protagonist, Harry Mason. He's on a quest to solve the mystery of his missing daughter, Cheryl, and his search takes him to Silent Hill, a town that has a dark, evil secret. There will be a few other additions as well, but perhaps the most intriguing feature is something called a psyche profile element. From GameZine:

"This will monitor every aspect of the player's reactions, from where they explore first, the items they've examined and the reactions to characters they've meet. This profile will then adapt Mason's reactions to human and inhuman characters."

So if you've never played the original Silent Hill, or you remain a huge fan of it and would like to play through an overhauled version, keep an eye out for Shattered Memories this autumn. These games have always been creepy to the max and it's always best to play 'em with the lights off at about 2 a.m.

Awesome! This is going to be so much better that the latest SH, and that's not saying much. As the first SH was great I don't believe they will ever top the 2nd installment.

I'm picking this one up as soon as possible, but for the Wii if it turns out to be the better version.

At first i thought it was seeign the story from other characters perspective, but now im just confused, why would you want to put characters in different locations??? and different responses.... surely that would effect the story?

Just thought about something. Konami need to incorporate good and useful Sixaxis options into the PS2 version if it's played on a PS2 backwards compatible PS3. Would that be possible?

I dunno, i mean it is a PS2 game after all. the PS2 is still a very populat console so im sure manhy people will be playing it on their PS2's instead of PS3's. not me! because i have a ps3.

To be clear, this will be a PS2 game that have the encoding to take advantage of optional Sixaxis option when played with a Sixaxis or Dual Shock 3 on a PS2 backwards compatible PS3. Just thinking that if Konami will be using motion options for the Wii version, possibly optional motion options for the PS2 version?

I say throw it on the PSN since it's technically a remake of a PS1 title.

I understood what you meant the 1st time, i still doubt it, theres no need, i hope the games not poor due to being based off Wii's control design, motion sensor for everything in a game like this doesnt work.

the best use of Sixaxis ive seen is in Uncharted when by keeping balance while walking over a log. its nice for subtle things, but for major control elements,its really un-enjoyable.

but like i said before as its a PS2 game i doubt they will add a Sixaxis feature for PS3 players, that sounds rather complex and a waste of time tbh.

This better not suck. The first Silent Hill remains one of my top 5 favorite games for the PS1, and it would be like stomping the life out of me if this remake isn't good.

They've thought of remaking it exclusive on the PS3 instead.
The first part is a masterpiece, it deserves better than that!

Meh, I'd rather they focus on a New game rather than remaking one on the PS3, Homecoming didnt really feel like a current gen game.... visually or gamplay wise.It was awful. i dont want to see a game from Double Helix for a long time!

Oh btw the way, if you havent played Siren: Blood Curse, i heavely recommend it, it far surpasses any current gen horror title and is up to the standard of SH1-3, try it out.

Interesting!

Well if it's good story/gameplay wise the graphics won't matter

Hoping it's a good entry to the franchise

H3ll yeah.... the first Silent Hill was one of the scariest games I've ever played. And it was way ahead of it time when it came out. Definitely one of my favorites....

The remake better do the game justice.... I'll probably get it on PS2 for my BC PS3....

Can't wait....

Fatal Frame 1 was THE scariest and creepiest horrer game that I've played. We need more games like that. Games today are more focused on little kids and not very scary. Take the newest SH:Homecoming, for example nothing scary about it.

Has anybody else Played any of the Fatal Frames??

This will be really awesome or really tragic depending on how it's handled. I wonder if Team Silent is doing this...I also wonder if Akira Yamaoka is doing the music, it wouldn't be Silent Hill without his music.
