Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Silent Hill HD Collection
Silent Hill fans who picked up the HD Collection for the PS3 can now download a bug-fixing title update. The patch addresses problems with the frame rate, audio synching, and “other reported issues.” Xbox 360 gamers, however, are out of luck as there will be no forthcoming patch. According to Konami, the update will not be hitting Live because of “technical issues and resources.”
Silent Hill fans who have been experiencing some problems with the recently released Downpour and HD Collection will soon be experiencing a smoother slice of hell. Konami has announced that patches are in the works for both titles, with the Downpour patch addressing an autosave glitch and the HD Collection’s on stabilizing the frame rate and correcting the audio-synching problems. Both patches will be available “in the coming weeks” on Live and PSN.
Hot on the heels of Silent Hill Downpour, Konami has released Silent Hill HD Collection for the PS3. The set includes re-mastered versions of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. Both titles feature “true high-definition graphics,” widescreen support, and touched-up audio.
Silent Hill fans will want to take note as some release dates have shifted for a number of upcoming titles. The bad news is that you’ll have to wait a bit longer to dive back into the universe, but the good news is that March will be dominated by Silent Hill. Starting March 13, Silent Hill Downpour will launch for the 360 and PS3. Following a week later is Silent Hill HD Collection, the 720p-ized re-releases of Silent Hill 2 and 3, for the 360 and PS3. Finally, the next week will see the release of Silent Hill Book of Memories for the PS Vita.
