Brazilian gaming site Player Zone has posted an exclusive story, claiming that ´Silent Hill 5´ will be a Nintendo Revolution exclusive title. Translated via Babelfish and slightly corrected, their article reads:
Konami Computer Entertainment Japan and Nintendo yesterday announced the development of ´Silent Hill 5´ for the Japanese company´s new console, the Revolution. Although everyone believed that the horror series´ new instalment would be PS3 exclusive, it seems that the Konami team was seduced by the Revolution´s innovative control. According to the series´ producer Akira Yamaoka: "We are excited about the great possibilities of the new control. We believe that the Silent Hill series will make a leap forward and the Revolution is the solution to enable our innovative plans ". Silent Hill 5 will be launched exclusively for Nintendo Revolution. The first images will be published, according to Yamaoka, during the Eletronic Entertainment Expo (E3) which will take place in May of 2006.However, Konami of Europe know nothing about this. Further, they clarified that a producer will never annunce new products. Only the publisher does. The producer may be quoted in the press release. But that release will be issued by the publisher. Nintendo of Europe was unavailable at the moment.
Further, the article is dated 29th of December 2005. If they really had broken the news, the story would certainly be official by now, almost a month later. It seems to me that this story is based on a wrong translation from a Japanese original. Yamaoka may have expressed interest in the Revolution. But it appears unlikely that ´Silent Hill 5´ will be a Revolution exclusive.
