After approximately one week of speculation; Konami finally broke their silence to end the rumour mill surrounding the Silent Hills cancellation. Originally Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro were pegged to be the perfect duo to deliver the next game in the Silent Hill series. The P.T demo shocked and surprised fans on 12th August 2014 as it appeared on the Sony Store with no prior warning. The buzz amongst the gaming community ignited and fans were once again poised and ready for the next slice of horror from the Hills.
In a statement reported to Polygon today Konami said:

On Good Friday of the Easter break I had the pleasure of attending The National Videogame Arcade in Nottingham, England. Behold the huge sign in the image above that fronts the delightful cavern of historical pieces from the Video Game world. For a price of £7.50 (approx $12 U.S) you can float around three floors of some of the worlds finest arcade machines, fun and quirky gaming pieces (driving the light cars around the makeshift track was cool) and play some of your favourite retro consoles. My absolute favourite room was right on the top floor titled "A History of Videogames in 100 Objects" of which lay Hideo Kojima's Business cards. Not doubt his details are now defunct due to the recent split with Konami.
Let's take a peek inside shall we?

We're well in to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and more recently the Nintendo Switch eras of gaming. Graphics had never looked so smooth and gameplay had never flowed so fluently. Let's not forget the triumphant last Generation of gaming with the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii; all of which I have a lot of time for.
