Silent Hill the Arcade



With half a million arcade machines across 9,500 arcade halls, and gamers forking out $2 to $3 a pop, understandable that Silent Hill the Arcade, a forthcoming light gun arcade shooter based on the Silent Hill series has captured the interest of die hard Japanese Arcade goers.

Just finished it's preliminary unveiling, and set to adorn the gaming arcades of Japan this Summer. The game deals with two characters, Eric and Tina, who have entered the town of Silent Hill and must battle enemies including nurses and good old Pyramid Head. And in case your were wondering, the distinctive ragged curtains decor is not only for effect, they reportedly help drown out the surrounding noise.
