On the first E3 Special of GameUP, we took a look at the Konami Pre-E3 conference, at least when we could actually see it (thanks Konami).

We saw news on the 3DS port of Metal Gear Solid 3, Pro Evo Soccer 2012 and some footage from the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour game. We also had a behind the scenes gilmpse of the new Silent Hill movie, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and confirmation of a Silent Hill Collection coming soon, with Silent Hill 2 & 3 getting HD updates, and Silent Hill: Book Of Destiny for the NGP.

A new IP was also showcased in Neverdead where (you won't believe this) YOU NEVER DIE!!! Who knew?!? (sarcasm). Certainly an intriguing looking game and need to see more of it to get a clear view of the concept.

Hideo Kojima also made an appearance showcasing his new idea of 'Transfarring', where you can take your save game from your PS3 and transfer it over to your PSP and vice versa. This feature is enabled at first in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which will be coming to PS3. this was later confirmed with the reveal of The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, bundling Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 & Peace Walker with HD graphics, and a similar HD Collection for the Zone Of The Enders series, Zone Of The Enders & Zone Of The Enders: The 2nd Runner. The PS3 versions will all feature 'transfarring' but the HD collections will also me making their way to the XBOX 360!!!

Finally, he only gave a side mention to MGS Rising for 2012 (a secret appearance at one of E3's major conferences perhaps?) but also showcased off his newly developed 'FOX engine' with the graphics on it looking more realistic than ever before. This engine will hopefully be used on a multi-platform basis.

AND FINALLY... teased right at the end of the conference was a new Contra game from Konami, so overall, an optimistic look ahead for Konami, AND THANK GOD FOR NO MENTION OF DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION!!!
