Silent Hill 5 gameplay video extravaganza

It's been a long time coming, folks, but change your pants and cover your mouth, because you might just get a little too excited at seeing the first in what we assume will be many tidbits of gameplay from Konami's upcoming Silent Hill 5. While it's being handled by an American development team instead of the usual Team Silent, these guys seem to have caught the mood pretty well. Despite that, the transition from the real world to the ... um ... really weird and twisted world looks a little bit too similar to the film adaptation. It's a great way to do it, sure, but can you guys think of anything else that may be even cooler? Two more videos await you after the jump, so get watchin'!
This one is just some more gameplay, with a bitchin' musical montage. It sounds like classic Silent Hill music.

This one shows the transition from real to crazy-ass world.

1. Since when is 1 minute of footage "extravaganza"?

2. it's funny how i see more SH 5 news on this site when i talk to my concept artist friend who works on the game about The Collective not having a clue how to cram their game into a PS3.

soo what i'm saying is, is that these are clips from the 360 build, which do look pretty sweet. i'm actually kinda surprised at how it looks considering The Collective's other failure--Dirty Harry.

regardless they are doing all they can. here's hoping somebody does a decent port of it for the PS3.

3. I like the movie effect of the paint peeling, etc. It'd be even cooler if it wasn't a cut-scene..if it was something that took place while you were playing.

4. Does any body else think the last video came straight out of the movie? If you were to switch the characters genders and add some barb wire to it, it would be the movie!

wow, have you learned nothing yet Konami?
a whole city and is all a big lie. you can't go anywhere.

this is only a cutscene that the transition takes place. there are many times where it takes place real time.

i'll provide you a link once they release one. =)
i've only seen quicktime captures from my friend's computer. it looks just like that cutscene. it'd be stupid if it went to a cutscene every time, agreed?


na, hardly a fanboy. i've no idea what these SH games are about, i just support my friend and the cool art that he does:

he's yet to post some of the monster designs he worked on since the game isn't done yet. but you can see his work in the latest EGM magazine.

10. "when i talk to my concept artist friend who works on the game about The Collective not having a clue how to cram their game into a PS3."

Hmmm I'm not sure how his employers would feel if they knew he was talking about the problems they're facing.
Good job you didn't give us a solid lead to who he is.

11. @A

his employers would agree with him! the PS3 is a wicked mistress of a Labyrinth.

as long as they get it up and running on at least one console is all that they care about firstly.

making it on PS3 may take advantage of the godly might of the Cell processor, but making for the 360 first will ensure they have a working game to show Konomi.

also, saying it's coming to both consoles makes good PR but as we all know PS3 versions always get delayed for some reason(Oblivion GOTY edition delayed for next month on PS3)

the same will happen for SH5.

and you think i'm an idiot for sharing one of his art accounts? that doesn't mean anything. just that he has more people looking at his cool art.

and if this does come around to the employers, guess what'll happen to my friend? not even a slap on the hand, he's their MVP. he does great work for them.

so, if you want to play this world he helped create sooner, your best bet would be on the 360.
