I like the render quality, look very realistic and well integrated with the plate Physics are quite fucked up in that sim, the shuttle goes trough the building as if it was air, the shuttle should get totally designated by the impact Also the full simulation seems to go in slow motion while the cars and people moves on real time The ground destruction looks cool too, and the concept is interesting

Konami Goes Mobile

News

Konami has announced its move from console gaming to mobile. Some big changes have been made to the company and people are wondering if this is a smart move.

Things at Konami have not been very stable lately. There has been a split with Hideo Kojima which affects the future of Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill, causing the cancelation of the game and the removal of its demo (P.T.) which has been taken off the Playstation Store (Del Toro was devastated by this). Even with these losses Konami hasn’t publicly made any comments that make it seem like they are bothered by it at all.

Apparently they are shifting their focus onto mobile games and Konami’s new CEO, Hideki Hayakawa, commented on this.

Gaming has spread to a number of platforms, but at the end of the day, the platform that is always closest to us, is mobile. Mobile is where the future of gaming lies.

There are people out there who believe that mobile games are killing traditional gaming and this is a prime example of it. Konami has come out with amazing games that have been a part of many people’s lives and shifting focus onto mobile might make them good money but it really is a way of making more money for less effort. Whatever happened to the quality games Konami used to make?
