okay, i'm tired, so like bear with me.
But this Japanese company by the name of HAMSTER Corporation is in existence, as is evidenced here - http://www.hamster.co.jp/

now! this company has released a number of games on the PS1, as part of its "MajorWave" series. Konami translates to "Little Wave", see. so, okay, that was probably just some kind of homage to konami, right? RIGHT. PROBABLY.


okay, here's another thing. Hamster's "Oretachi Ga-cen Zoku" (yes I'm romanising it like that, Gesen is short for Geemu sentaa or game centre so IT MAKES SENSE you fucks) is a series of old arcade games re-rereleased for the PS2 with various fancy extras, like a CD and such. Most are from dead or somewhat hibernating companies like Data East, Nichibutsu or whatevers, which is fair enough. But! Some of them are from KONAMI! Scramble and Time Pilot, and that one with X's in the name. now, big companies like konami exploit their OWN history, they don't license it out to hamsters.

Now, the final ... bit of the thing, came from Japanese developers Microcabin, notable for being really old. Microcabin developed some of the MajorWave games, see. And on the Microcabin gamelist page of their site, it says "MajorWave1500シリーズ(コナミ)" which is "MajorWave1500 Series (Konami)" for the katakana-illiterate.


i hand it over to you, the fine people of whichever ch i'm posting on.

did i just type all of that?

Aha! konami distributes for many companies including hamster and microcabin through this "major thingy". Maybe microcabin-webmaster-person thought (ah, distributed by konami) and put the コナミ on for that reason.. And THAT pisses on the only point of my theory that had anything going for it.
