Konami Is Finally Patching Silent Hill Downpour And The HD Collection

SHHD

Rewind to February and you would’ve found a cheerier, more hopeful Adam. March looked incredible, with its triple dose of Silent Hill and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Unfortunately, March quickly transformed into a month of horror, and not for the reasons most of us would’ve liked. I wasn’t as burned as a majority of horror fans were by Downpour and the HD Collection, but there’s no denying how buggy the latter was. To my surprise, I also enjoyed Operation Raccoon City, but that could be a mixture of my incredibly low expectations for it going in and the fact that by the time I got my hands on the game four of the Spec Ops missions — which are far superior to the campaign that comes with that game — had already released.

Thankfully, Konami has taken notice of all the issues that are plaguing their games saying “Players have voiced their concerns, and solutions to these issues will be fixed and launched in the coming weeks.” So that’s good news, assuming you’re like me and you haven’t already traded in your games. Don’t do it kids, keep your games, because every time you trade one in Pyramid Head sheds a single tear. That tear then proceeds to run down his creepy metal helmet and down his skirt made of human skin.

These patches, which will come out soon for the PS3 and Xbox 360, will fix some of the more serious issues players have experienced while playing these games. A statement from Konami explained the work that’s being done to remedy the issue, “Understanding the issues some users are experiencing, development teams are currently creating online patches for both games, which will fix the frame rate issues, the audio-synching in Silent Hill HD Collection, and the Auto-Save issues in Silent Hill Downpour.”

    Awesome! Can’t wait to revisit Downpour in a more finished state- not that it ran all that bad on my PS3 in the first place. Good to hear they’ve been listening!

    I’m excited! Downpour is buggy. It thought I bought Silent Hill Downpour Remix. Haven’t played the HD version yet of 2 and 3 yet. It’s been sitting on my TV stand haunting me. Maybe I’ll wait for these patches. But buggy or not buggy I’m a huge Silent Hill fan and I think Downpour holds its own. I’m satisfied.
