Silent Hill PS3: The Lost Pitch www.bit.ly/silenthillps3
Andrew Borman’s YouTube channel, PtoP Online, specialises in footage of long-cancelled games: he has previously unearthed a Game Boy version of Diablo, and Free Radical’s Star Wars Battlefront III. Here he presents a playable prototype of Climax LA’s pitch for a Silent Hill PS3 game. Konami turned it down, as did several other publishers after Climax renamed it Broken Covenant. By day, Borman is a teacher-librarian and this very different kind of archiving is a vital endeavour in a medium that struggles even to keep track of games that did see the light of day.
