61w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared some fresh video footage today of Silent Hill: Book of Memories for the PlayStation Vita handheld console.
To quote: I've got a gaming confession to make: I've never played a Silent Hill game. Never really had much of an interest in the series, even... until now.
Silent Hill: Book of Memories is a Survival Horror Action-RPG coming to PS Vita later this month. Like chocolate and peanut butter, this is a mashup I can get into. After sampling the game at PAX Prime, I met up with the game's producer, Tomm Hewlett, in San Francisco to find out how Konami plans to please fans of both genres.
Jeff Rubenstein, PlayStation.Blog Social Media Manager: How do you adapt an incredibly scary survival horror series into this action/RPG format? Why did you choose this genre?
Tomm Hewlett, Game Producer: We heard about PS Vita, and we really wanted to make a Silent Hill that was specially suited for that. We really wanted to experiment with multiplayer.
Survival horror is a very particular genre, but with PS Vita's online capabilities, it just made sense to do multiplayer here. So we started to experiment with different gameplay styles, what was kind of compelling, and through a long random assortment...

100w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has announced that Silent Hill: Downpour is coming full circle on the PS3 entertainment system in an interview below.
To quote: I'm a sucker for horror games, so I jumped at a recent opportunity to watch a short demo of Konami's upcoming PS3 survival-horror epic Silent Hill: Downpour.
In a development applauded by series fans, Downpour strongly emphasizes creeping psychological horror over the twitchy action of recent entries like Silent Hill: Homecoming.
You play as Murphy, a maximum-security inmate with a deeply troubled past. You awaken on the fringes of the cursed town of Silent Hill after your prison transport bus crashes.
True to Silent Hill form, you'll spend the rest of the game evading the town's monstrous denizens while piecing together Murphy's deepest secrets – including the dark truths that brought him to Silent Hill.
I spoke with Producer Devin Shatsky, who answered some key questions while playing through the first section of the game. If you have questions, leave them in the comments and I'll do my best to get you answers!
PlayStation.Blog: From an interface perspective, how is Downpour different from the last game in the series, Homecoming?
