Silent Hill Demo Stolen From Leipzig

A demo of Silent Hill: Origins, the fifth instalment in the Silent Hill series, has been stolen from Leipzig and is now available to download online. However, the game will only be playable for those with homebrew-ready PSP’s. The game is currently been developed and Climax Studios, and shares a gameplay style similar to what was seen in Silent Hill 4: The Room. It currently has a planned release date on November 6th in North America, and an earlier October 26th date is expected in Europe.

Karl Jeffery, CEO and founder of developer Climax, has commented to GamesIndustry.biz that he is “100 per cent” certain their studio did not leak the game. “All I can say is that code did not leak from Climax – 100 per cent guaranteed. The code that is out there is fingerprinted and was supplied solely to Konami for marketing purposes,” he concluded.
