Our prayers have been answered – Sony Computer Entertainment have entered into an agreement with Kojima Productions to develop their first console title as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

“PlayStation(R)’s history is one of game innovation and great new franchises,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “Hideo Kojima has been a huge part of that history, and we are therefore delighted that he has chosen to bring his brand new project to life in partnership with PlayStation. We look forward to working with him on an exciting new game and warmly welcome him to the PlayStation family.”

Hideo Kojima, Game Designer at Kojima Productions, has also commented, adding that “I will be taking on a new challenge by establishing my own independent studio, and I am thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with PlayStation, who I have continued to work with all these past years. I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise.”

Words I think we can all agree on – perhaps Silent Hills isn’t as much of a pipe dream as we first thought?
