PSP Fanboy once wrote: "So how about a port of Resident Evil 4? The new over-the-shoulder camera style would be perfect for the handheld!"
Well, we might not have Resident Evil yet, but it looks like Silent Hill Origins will fit the bill just nicely. This first gameplay video (delivered by Playstation Portable.de) leaked from the floors of the Games Convention in Germany doesn't show off any enemies, but it shows some particularly nice graphics (the fog looks great), atmosphere and familiar controls. Hopefully we'll discover more nuggets of gameplay over the course of the convention, so keep it locked in to the Fanboy.
[Update 1: According to PSP World, the game will offer "a cinematic experience comparable to the previous games, but framed within interactive moments." That sounds a lot like Resident Evil 4's button-mashing cutscenes to me.]

Couldn't the person playing the game have done _anything_ other than turn in circles and switch weapons..? That, and the camera cropped the edges of the screen.
Even so, better than nothing, and the game looks pretty good. Interesting offset character/camera angle and I like the variable zoom depending on the weapon.

Sweetness! Those are nice looking graphics. Now if they could only make the weapon transition more realistic, and not so magically instant, it'd be perfect. :P

I can't help but feeling the fanboy inside of me yell "OMG OMG OMG i want taht!11".
While I don't like the fact that it looks a lot like RE4, I still think it loks great.

The graphics and atmosphere look great, but I'm not sure how I feel about Konami turning Silent Hill into Resident Evil 4. Not only did they swipe the over-the-shoulder camera, they've even got the laser-guided aiming! But I loved RE4, and I generally enjoy the Silent Hill titles, so I'll definitely give this a shot.
