The lights are on
Konami announced the PlayStation 3 version of the Silent Hill HD patch was made available to download last month. Xbox 360 owners? You're out of luck.
The publisher confirmed it has canceled the Xbox 360 patch for the game due to technical issues and resources. "Konami apologizes to any players who are continuing to experience these issues on the Xbox 360 sku," they said in a statement.
The patch fixed a number of framerate and audio-sync issues.
I'm starting to think Konami wants to kill off Silent Hill, first Downpour had zero marketing, and now this.
This is the lamest reason to start a flame war I've ever seen.
There went my $35. Not happy.
Wow. Just, wow.
Everyone here is aware that these games existed previously to this, and could have been played at anytime, without all these problems, right?
It's not that big of a deal, to me. By now, most everyone who already owns the collection has probably played through the games plenty. I've only witnessed a handful of the framerate issues. There's other things that are worth being upset about.
One game I no longer have to worry about picking up.
Ouch, I guess the PS3 copy sold more units. Although Konami has been giving a lot of love to the PS3 as of late (most recently and importantly for me, trophy patch + small improvements to a 4 year old game, MGS4; although I don't know why it wasn't done sooner - maybe they are hoping to keep Metal Gear in people's minds for when Metal Gear Rising comes out).
That really sucks for 360 users :/ ps3 ftw? lol
Really? It always suck to leave one group of players out of the loop...
Damn that sucks
still was able to get 100% achievements anyways. Yea, the frame rate and audio needs fixing, AND that is not Microsoft's fault. It is the publisher of the game. Creating in-game download content and in-game bug resolving patches are not Microsoft's responsibility, if it was...DAMN KUDOS to you Microsoft.
I can deal with not having the patch for the Silent Hill HD collection, what I DO ask for is a patch for Silent Hill Downpour.
I think of instead of canceling the patch they Konami should have canceled the game entirely...Silent Hill has been garage for a while now...
Wow, that's terrible.
Konami: Hey, uhh, guys? We're sorry you're having technical problems. We really are. And we were going to release a patch, but now... uh... well, we ran into some technical problems. Sorry. Thanks for your money, though. That was awesome.
