iPhone Silent Hill $1 until Saturday

s they have been wont to do as of late, Konami has drastically cut the price on one of their classic franchises-turned-iPhone games

As they have been wont to do as of late, Konami has drastically cut the price on one of their classic franchises-turned-iPhone games. You'd think Konami would have had their fill following Metal Gear, Frogger, and Silent Scope, but the company announced earlier today that Silent Hill: The Escape will be dropping from US$7.99 to just one dollar starting immediately, and running through Saturday.

GamePro Arcade reviewed Silent Hill, and while they deemed the game "Pass" (as in "pass over," not "pass the test"), it's a whole different ballgame when you're getting a 700% discount. When our iPhone review site, iPhoneGameoftheDay posts an official review, we'll update this story accordingly.

Is that right? 700%? I suck at math. Anyway, here's Konami's press release, just in case you think I'm making this up.

SILENT HILL: THE ESCAPE NOW AVAILABLE FOR 99 CENTS AT APP STORE

Players Can Now Put a Little Terror in Their Pockets for 99 Cents

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Silent Hill: The Escape is now available for 99 cents on the Apple App store exclusively from September 3 to September 5. Konami's popular survival horror franchise makes its way onto the iPhone and iPod touch, bringing a terrifying experience to gamers on-the-go.

A first person, 3D shooter, Silent Hill: The Escape allows players to feel fully immersed in a nail-biting experience. A revolver and a dim flashlight is all gamers have to navigate through eerie mazes while trying to locate keys to escape the monster-infested labyrinth. Players can roam the maps with caution and agility but one touch from the gruesome monsters and the game is over. A steady hand and precise accuracy are also crucial to swiftly reload the revolver, as even the slightest tremble will let the bullets go scattering to the floor.

Silent Hill: The Escape is available for purchase for 99 cents from September 3 to September 5 only on the App Store for Apple iPhone and iPod touch. For more information and assets, please visit http://www.konami.com/downloads/.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
