Konami, a long and successful journey

 

Konami Corporation is a big company that develops and creates toys, collectables, anime and videogames among others. It was founded in 1969 and the name means “small waves”. Is based in Tokio. But it wasn't until 1973 is when they started working manufacturing arcade machines, and created their first game machine in 1978. In the early 80's starting selling PC games and for FamiCom, from Nintendo, that lead them to the success. The Famicom system, NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) was the best thing that could happen to Konami, because they created tons of the best seller games, included Gradius, Caslevania and Metal Gear.

 

Despite the big restrictions for game developers, Konami managed really well to be successful and kept growing, so they decided to open an office in California, later they opened a subsidiary in Las Vegas for Casino games, and they've become the 4th video game developer in Japan, after Nintendo, Sega and Namco Bandai.

 

Great games from Konami

 

In 2005 they produced what it was the most important and expensive game, because of its high cost and the link with the brand PlayStation and the CELL chip use, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots wasn't sell for any other brands.

 

After it, they haven't develop that many games, but the few they've done, have been a great success like Silent Hill, Zone of the Enders, Never Dead and Metal Gear Rising. There is a funny note about Konami, you will see many times the number 573, and that is because is a representation of Konami, 5 is “ko” in Japanese, 7 is pronounced “nana”, and shortened as “na” while 3 is “mittsu”, shortened to “mi”= Konami, you will see this number in a lot of their telephone numbers, sites with e-AMUSEMENT system and as high punctuation in some of their games.
