To make a nice looking game and cancel it for no reason. Like with Silent Hills and a remake of the original 1980s Metal Gear with David Hayter reprising his role as Snake.
Guy 1: Dude have you seen the trailer for Bloodborne 2? It looks awesome!
Guy 2: I was so hyped up for it but I heard the game got cancelled.
Guy 1: Goddamnit I bet Konami was involved in this bullshit!

1.)Japanese word literally meaning "small wave".

2.)The name of a videogame company that has been known throughout its history to release high-quality videogames of all kinds of genres and systems. Konami is particularly well-known for such games as:
*Metal Gear
*Zone Of Enders
*Silent Hill
*Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
...among MANY other titles throughout its history, a lot of which happened to be pre-licensed. Konami should not be forgotten for having released a LOT of arcade games during the 80's, including pre-licensed games like The Simpsons & TMNT, both of which were awesome side-scrolling action games. Another arcade-only game, Vendetta, had a character named Hawk, who looked just like Hulk Hogan!
Today Konami continues to be the force behind multiple consoles, including the 128-bit systems and Gameboy Advance. Konami has a lot of cool titles, but their best happens to be Metal Gear Solid, ZOE, Silent Hill, and TMNT (well, this game flopped, but I sure do hope the sequel has much-needed improvements, as good as TMNT is).
"Konami rules. ^_^ but I miss the old wave logo they used to have above their it's replaced by a red-colored logo that resembles the end of a katana. -_- *sigh* I miss the old wave logo..."

Major compnay involved in the video game business. Konami has made many classics such as Metal Gear, Castlevania, Life Force, Gradius, and Contra. Some of their more recent work is Zone of Enders : 2nd Runner, Silent Hill 3, and Metal Gear Solid 2 : Substance.
Konami is better at making video games than Capcom and Electronic Arts.

A game company based in Japan. They were once a top-notch full fledging game publisher and developer, producing innovative and fun video game titles. However, at the peak of 1997, Konami lost it's edge to other high developing game companies. Despite innovative titles during it's recent years, like Metal Gear Solid and DDR(Dance Dance Revolution), they failed to suffice as a high profile company outside of the occasional Castlevania release. Konami's creative games lost theier impact: Metal Gear Solid was hampered and withered some because of multiple "rehashes" such as the 2 different "Special Edition" releases such as MGS2:Sons of Liberty" and the re-release of their first game for the Gamecube, "MGS: Snake Eater". DDR has practically died thanks to over-marketing the arcade dancing game, not attracting enough arcade-goers (including regular players) with lack of any new innovation as far as gameplay goes as the versions went on (freeze steps were introduced, but were created and made famous first by Andamiro's Pump it Up), and lack of any sort of support from those who were dancing on Pump it Up, a game made by "rival" company Andamiro (based in Korea). Thanks to the last reason, diehard DDR addicts and Konami fanboys formed a small army to bash Pump it Up by giving it bad reviews on forums and disrespecting Pump players and Andamiro (Andamiro mostly for racist reasons: because they were Korean and not Japanese). Despite Konami's attempts to bring some of their past series out of the hole and trying to resurface DDR, the "remakes" of their old games fell into obscurity and DDR died in Japan by it's 8th "mix" and left the DDR fanboys dissapointed, angry, and rude to other dance sims (namely Pump it Up and Techno Motion). Aside from Castlevania amd Metal Gear Solid, Konami will never be the top-notch game developer they used to be and they now rely on there last big series', fanboys, and new titles.
-There is a game on the Best Buy shelf and it is developed by Konami.
-Konami made another rehash of "Metal Gear Solid".
-The Konami fanboy poked fun at the PUMP machine, unbeknowest to how stupid and immature he was for bashing an intimate object. The PUMP player talked some sense into the Konami fanboy.
