all this hubub about a game that MIGHT NOT EVEN BE REAL


but if it is, I wonder if Ayami Kojima will do all new artwork for it


and portable gaming is essential to the industry, blame Nintendo for creating the GameBoy 20 years ago

Possibly the most sensible thing said in this entire thread.

And I agree. The game companies that have made inroads to the iPhone/iPod/iPad market and are doing well will have those profits to be able to work on their next console based blockbuster.

So I take it you didn't like Dracula X Chronicles?

No, I did enjoy it...on my friend's PSP.  I just wasn't about to buy a new handheld just to play it (point of the argument at hand).  Like I said, I don't mind handhelds when I'm away from home, but when I AM at home...I vastly prefer a real gaming console and television.  And truthfully, that's the only source of my gripe on this discussion.  If this were being released on a home console I don't currently own, then I'd be less inclined to complain.  At some point or another I always end up owning all current gen consoles anyways.

But do you think that a collection like this would even be considered for console release, assuming it is what we think it is? I'm not sure what they have in mind, but I doubt a handful of 2.5D remakes of games from the 80's/90's would fly on the PS3. Portables seem like a more natural fit for something like that.

Well obviously that's what the marketing guys at Konami have been thinking for some time now, hence the reason all new 2D CV's have been exclusive to the handheld systems for the last 10 years or so (Rebirth and Harmony of Despair notwithstanding).  Though personally, I'd rather see a brand new next gen 2D game on the consoles rather than a rehash collection.

We don't even know what the game is going to be like (if it's even real), and people are already complaining about porting it to another system. Apperently because people think it's for the anniversary, it should be ported to PS3, Xbox, 3DS, PSP, Mobile, toaster, and refridgiator. If the game was released for only one of these systems there still would be complaints.

You people should have this discussion until after we know what the game is.

Anyone know where this list of konami gamescom games came from? Is it actually a reliable source or are we all getting excited over nothing?
What a horrible night to have a curse!

Hopefully this is a remake of some game(s) and not just a straight collection of old games. That would be boring as hell, and something I wouldn't be bothered to care about. In this day and age when most CV games are easily emulated, who needs that? Other than that, I can't think of anything else to say about this... which, for some reason, I find oddly disappointing.

Congratulations to you guys for carrying on a 10 page thread based on what little is available.

I think he meant the list that had "Complete Chronicles" on it.

It comes from someone ass. No, seriously. He just invented the list and put some games in it, some of them already confirmed, some rumored. Every fucking E3 has a list like this, and every E3 they're prooved to be fake, why it wouldn't be the case now?

successor you can't hide from us forever

yeah i don't get all the talk, either. neither is this confirmed nor has it been hinted at in any way. i don't even get how you got the idea that this was vita only since this allegedly legit list doesn't list platforms. it would be cool, though, but i don't expect anything given konami's laziness and disinterest in the series displayed these past few months / years.

also given that konami won't even bother to do more than upscaling for its moneycow series mgs, there's not much hope they'd just give cv a spa treatment. this might be an instance of "people will buy anything as long as it has BIG BOSS" in it. it sucks because i totally would.

Except Lords of Shadow was a pretty big deal. The budget may not have been MGS sized, but Konami is definitely investing in Castlevania right now. Even if they're doing it wrong. They wanna turn Castlevania into God of War, which means Konami REALLY wants Castlevania to be huge. Which it will obviously never be. But "disinterest"? Nah.

The truth. The pretty damn sad truth, at that.

A lot of this thread was
Congratulations to you guys for carrying on a 10 page thread based on what little is available.

Much of it is bickering, though. Or is that the gamescom thread? I don't know. There's such extreme anger in the fanbase right now. I'm scared and excited for the anniversary to see what we will or won't get and if it will or won't do it justice.
