Not only did Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo have E3 briefings, but Konami had also organized one, albeit with less fanfare. This year, it touted "revolutionary" announcements, and while a new Castlevania was unveiled, the Saw voice actor revealed, and it was clarified that MGS: Rising is also coming to PS3/PC, there wasn't really anything otherworldly.
Six Days in Fallujah is a 3rd person shooter experience that puts the player in the center of the largest urban military operation in four decades.

The last we heard from SAW was shortly after Brash Entertainment's demise, as it was being shopped around to other publishers. Using the Unreal Engine 3, Saw is being developed with the creators of the SAW movies, Leigh Whannell & James Wan, and according to Variety, it's now being picked up by Konami. Familiar with the genre through its Silent Hill franchise, Konami is said to have picked up the project after the right reverted to Lionsgate. Still being developed by Zombie Studios, the source claims the game is now also coming to PC.
Konami has just launched a new teaser site featuring a cryptic logo accompanied by nothing else but 'A Next Metal Gear' tagline. While it seems to be a clear indication of an Xbox 360 power button, it should be noted that circle with the upside down "i" is a universal symbol for power, so it does not necessarily point toward the much-rumored, and denied, X360 version of MGS 5. Back in October, a Konami PR person stated it was actively "investigating" releasing a version on Microsoft's latest console, a comment that was later removed from the original article.

Konami released its Q1 2009 financial results for the April-June quarter, revealing revenue went up 17% compared to the same period last year, while income jumped 65% dominated by the June 12 release of Metal Gear Solid 4, which has 3 million copies in two weeks.

Last week Konami released the Gene Expansion pack for Metal Gear Online adding new maps, characters and a game mode to the existing game. Apparently the content was quite popular as it brought Konami's download server to its knees and has since been causing outages to the game, its online store and the brand new Reward Shop, allowing gamers to buy new gear with accumulated reward points, which has now been closed. Konami issued a statement that it is aware of the problem but unfortunately has no permanent solutions for the interruptions.

Konami, who will release its own Rock Revolution later this year, is seeking monetary compensation and an order that would block defendant from using the cited peripherals.
