Konami Goes Mobile
15 May, 2015
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?
