The Weekend Hotness: Konami, what are you doing?

This is how Konami kills its own game’s sales: First, it showcases Snake Eater for the 3DS and promises to incorporate elements from Peace Walker. Next, it bumps the game’s status down from tweaked remake to straight PS2 port. Then, it announces an HD collection for home consoles containing Solid 3 as well as Solid 2 and Peace Walker. Finally, it announces that the HD Collection will also be coming to the Vita. Ballsy play, Konami.

This weekend was all about the Tokyo Game Show, and I hope you came out of the experience a better, more enlightened person. I know I have! In addition to tons of news, previews, and footage of Japanese pole dancers, we also have video from last month’s joint Destructoid / ScrewAttack PAX panel. Check it all out! Do it!
