Kotaku’s Unfair Response to Konami’s Offer

Kotaku has mocked Konami’s alternative offer after they revealed they are not going to release a patch for Silent Hill HD on the Xbox360. Konami’s alternative offer is a choice of games provided you have your receipt for the game and purchased it before the 8th of August. Overall, Konami’s offer is actually quite a good one and some of the games available are quite good. Kotaku has selectively chosen Frogger from the list of games, thereby making it seem as though Konami were offering very old games as a ridiculous response. They conveniently neglected to mention same of the games on the list such as:

  • Metal Gear Solid HD
  • Metal Gear Solid 4 (For PS3 Only)
  • Silent Hill Downpour
  • Pro Evolution Soccer 2012
  • Dance Dance Revolution 2010 Bundle

Overall, this offer is a very generous offer and Kotaku’s response is completely unfair. Perhaps it was unfair for Konami to have released the game as it was, but they certainly seem intent on making amends and this seems like the type of deal that will result in a loss on their end. Pretending that they are offering Frogger as compensation is completely unfair.

It does raise the question: what would have been a fair offer from Konami? The list of games they offered seems to be almost their complete line up.
