Climax Studios sharing pieces of Art Work from Silent Hill titles

Climax Studios, the responsible for Silent Hill: Origins and Shattered Memories, have been sharing some pieces of artwork, specially from Shattered Memories, on their facebook page. Take a look! Monday there will be more Silent Hill artworks!

Make sure to give them a like and follow their updates, specially to know more about the new horror game they are developing!

Konami asked Hideo Kojima to do the next Silent Hill

Hideo Kojima, best known as the creator of the Metal Gear Solid, recently said that the president of Konami has asked him to make the next Silent Hill game, specially after Kojima said that he wouldn’t mind working on the series.

“In the past I’ve mentioned Silent Hill in interviews, and as a result of that the president of Konami rung me up and said he’d like me to make the next Silent Hill.

Honestly, I’m kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies, so I’m not confident I can do it. At the same time, there’s a certain type of horror that only people who are scared of can create, so maybe it’s something I can do.

That said, I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect.”

What do you think about Hideo Kojima working on the next Silent Hill title? Would that make Konami finally open their eyes and give to the series the love it deserves?
These news certainly give some hope on what the future of Silent Hill will be, and seeing Konami refering a “next Silent Hill” actually makes me happy, specially if it has Kojima on the team!

Xbox 360 won’t get the HD Collection Patch

That’s it, the patch that was recently released for Playstation 3 with the goal of solving the well known technical problems of Silent Hill: HD Collection, won’t make its way into the Xbox 360.
The announcement was made by Konami through a press release.

PlayStation 3 Online Patch Deployed. XBOX 360 Patch No Longer Scheduled for Release

Today, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced that while a PlayStation®3 online title update for Silent Hill HD Collection has been deployed for download via PlayStation®Network, plans for an XBOX®360 title update have been cancelled due to technical issues and resources.

Understanding the issues some users are experiencing, KONAMI issued a title update for Silent Hill HD Collection (PS3), which fixed frame rate issues as well as audio-synching and other reported issues. KONAMI apologizes to any players who are continuing to experience these issues on the XBOX 360 sku.

Silent Hill HD Collection is available at retail stores nationwide.

This decision is certainly very sad, as Konami decided to keep Xbox 360 players from getting a patch to solve technical problems on their product, the HD Collection. Therefore, if Xbox players paid the same for that HD Collection, why aren’t they able to experience the game with better conditions than the ones Konami presented on this failed remaster of Silent Hill 2 and 3?
No answers about these facts, but of one thing I’m sure, Xbox is not getting a patch for HD Collection.

Konami working on patches for Downpour and HD Collection

Silent Hill fans, we are currently aware that many users have encountered technical issues while playing Silent Hill HD Collection and Silent Hill Downpour.

Development teams are currently creating online patches for both games, which will fix frame rate issues, as well as the audio-synching in Silent Hill HD Collection and the Auto-Save issues in Silent Hill Downpour. Players have voiced their concerns and solutions to these issues will be fixed and launched in the coming weeks. Patches for Silent Hill Downpour and Silent Hill HD Collection will be made available on both XBOX®Live Arcade and PlayStation®Network. 

Thank you for your patience and stay tuned to this page as we update you on this ongoing process.

Silent Hill: Book of Memories officially delayed

I must say that I wasn’t specially excited with Silent Hill Book of Memories, unless we’re talking about its soundtrack that totally looks amazing. That’s why I’m probably sad, we’ll have to wait more months to finally hear the new songs, specially Love Psalm featuring Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.
Another thing that makes me sad is the fact that Konami wanted, at all costs, release all the Silent Hill games together, and they’ve chosen March to do so, but it seems that Konami wasn’t ready to do such a thing. So I wonder if there was a real reason to release every single game with the difference of just 1 week. I think that it was a bad decision, specially because of the HD Collection, some more time would be important to clear all the issues from this game, however it looks like Konami was too hungry for releases. Now we have two games that were released in a rush because of the Silent month “thing” and Book of Memories is already out of that list, having its release date scheduled to Spring 2012…

All the sense of Silent Hill month is gone…
