Yes. You have read that right.

A homebrew Vita developer has recreated one of the greatest demos ever made renamed "The Hallway". Those that have played the original demo will know exactly what the deal is. I just tried it out myself and the developer has done a fantastic job of recreating the game, replicating the horror that we were all terrified off and running very well on Vita hardware!

You can download it here, You will need a jail broken PS Vita to install and play!

It’s funny how PT essentially has all this free PR, and is wanted by so many people... but Konami gonna Konami I guess...
Either way people gonna still complain, if KONAMI release PT they gonna say they stoke kojima idea, or not worth the original by master Kojima, if they dont F Konami.

A glorified looping hallway. This thing was a great demo but people talking about it as if it would be some gaming masterpiece....its a looping hallway. What kind od game would that be if u had to do that shit for 15 hours.

In reality nobody would know how this game would of played like so saying Konami missed the boat....missed what, who knows what this would of been.

Yup.

Also, unpopular opinion. Horror is boring in general. Imagine being scared of polygons. Might as well be scared of boobs.

This is the first time I came across it. In the latest build you can go into the bathroom and the door closing scare is in there according to the latest build notes.
Ah then this is the same build from a while ago, can't remember how old it is but a good few months. Really was hoping they would get the whole game on there or at least have the Lisa around the corner or behind you scare :0

I have PT on my PS4 and never played it lewl
I have PT on my second PS4 but it's locked, although I played it once.
My plan was to have a vita with all the cool homebrew stuff like ported quake, hexen, half life, postal etc. And one vita for alle original and online stuff. Maybe I'll do it within the next few days and PT will be on it, too

Unless my sarcasm detector is off. Wouldn't it be the same for arousal? Or happiness? Or sadness? Or frustration? Or any form or emotion really.

It's more a startle that these games have, and that's not instinctively tied to horror. Scream on anyone's ear while jumping out at them, it would startle anyone. It's a self defense mechanism.

I actually mean this, I'm not trying to be a dick... why do native english speakers make such an obvious mistake so often ("of" instead of have or 've)? It's entirely too rampant for me to understand. If english is a second language for someone such a mistake would be completely understandable considering how similar the two sound but anyone who speaks the tongue natively should immediately realize "of" is incorrect since it renders the meaning completely nonsensical. And yet it's almost always native speakers who make this mistake (not sure on which camp you fall).

Again, not trying to be an ass, at all... I just don't understand this particular mistake being so rampant, especially considering how prevalent written communication is in today's world and how one must surely have been exposed on countless occasions to the correct written use of would've/could've/should've... do people read these as something else or what? Can someone explain this to me?

Is this a serious comment? Wow.
Do ghosts like you get scared?

What are the chances Konami would actually revive Silent Hill in the future?

Most likely because people write like they speak... if their speech is relaxed, then they’ll usually type like that too

Also, if the person is American, I’d question their ability to speak proper Queen’s English, as it could be an American educational thing.

I'd get this train of thought if of and have had similar or interchangeable meanings, but this mistake suggests a fundamental misunderstanding of what "of" means, which makes the whole thing seem incredibly bizarre considering how commonplace the word "of" is.

I'm not a language expert or anything but I do speak 5 languages (not as impressive as it sounds, trust me... three of them are quite similar to each other and were learned passively through flatmates and SOs) and while this kind of thing is very common in pretty much any of those languages when it comes to idioms or folk sayings whose meaning is sometimes obscure or not immediately apparent and as such facilitates confusion, something as obviously incorrect as the "of" thing I haven't yet witnessed in any of those languages, especially on such a rampant rate.

Then its purely an education level thing

Think of it like this (bad example) - no educated person would say "aint nobody got time for that" - you would say "nobody has time for that" - and even then, thats pretty awkward, but it makes more grammatical sense. Yet the first saying is probably more common (certainly among certain demographics)

Another one that grinds my gears - "I don't know nothing" - which means you know something. You would say either "I don't know" or "I don't know anything"

Jail broken, but why? They should do what those weird iOS apps do and call it “Silent but Deadly Hallway on the Hills”. They could release it on the store for free.

These are more like ebonics than straight up mistakes, though, no? The of thing is unique in that regard, it's not a slight mangling, it completely destroys the meaning it carries and isn't related to it in any way.

As for pet peeves, "could care less" being used to mean "couldn't care less" is the one that weirds me out the most... but it does have it's charm, I'll admit!
