Silent Hill HD Collection PS3 bug reports sought

Sunday, 25th March 2012 23:10 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Konami has asked those experiencing problems with the PlayStation 3 version of the Silent Hill HD Collection to get in touch.

Konami’s Twitter asked players to submit reports through its Support Center; click the link on the far right to reveal up to date contact details.

Earlier, the publisher said it was “aware” of problems with the PS3 version and had deployed a patch to correct them.

Despite this, users continue to report issues including freezing and synching problems.

The Silent Hill HD Collection is out now in the US, and coming to Europe on March 29. It’s also available on Xbox 360.

Thanks, Traceable X.

    How exactly do you fuck up a HD remake? And why make arbitrary changes no one wants and makes the game look worst?

    Hope this doesn’t affect the xbox 360 version I have pre-ordered.

    Gekidami: wow that screenshot, the hd remake looks far better imo in the lower half of the screen (car park, etc), but FAR worse up top. For an HD remake… why would they decide to make it look worse -.-

    Why do they always fuck up? The best HD Collection to the date is God of War Origins. The first (Gow Collection) had some really awful resolutions issues (not to cry for but still). Prince of Persia had the CG movies pixelated all over and MGS had the non-real time cutscenes stretched to fit the screen and looked awful not to mention the MGS3 mini videos showing Snake in survival mode being totally screwed up. I thought they were giving the Silent Hill Collection a good treatment (the whole voice re-recording) but it seems they took off things instead of putting. Where’s the animated fog? What about those SHITTY loading times? Damn the QA testers for some games should be shot to death.

    “Damn the QA testers for some games should be shot to death.”

    You have no clue what a QA tester does do you? QA testers are just hunters of bugs, they don’t fix them they just FIND them its up to the developer and publisher to make sure they are squashed. The issues do not fall onto the QA testers, it comes to the publisher because they have to do QA to make sure the game has the right quality. So fail on Konami for allowing these bugs to get through in order to be pressed for release.

    BTW SHame on you for saying someone should deserve death because they didn’t do their job. When you fuck up on flipping burgers maybe you should be brought to the back and shot?

    Says “[reviewed]“ next to 360 there, and apparently it doesnt fair much better:

    “Frankly, a disgustingly terrible job has been done with this package. Silent Hill 2 is especially bad, as the visual “upgrade” actually looks worse than its PlayStation 2 counterpart. The game’s contrast has been altered to make everything unnecessarily darker, while its claustrophobic fog effects have been removed almost entirely. Not only does this diminish the atmosphere, it exposes a number of graphical errors that the effect existed to hide.”

    And i’m glad i’m not the only one mad about there only being two games in this so-called ‘Collection’, its the reason i’m not getting it, if SH4 or even a HD version of Origins was in there, i’d overlook the bugs.

    “Even if this disc was supposed to reflect just the PlayStation 2 games, the “collection” is incomplete without the fourth entry. It doesn’t matter if you liked that game or not — Konami made Team Silent rope it into the Silent Hill universe, and it seems ironic that the publisher would deny its existence now. Not to mention, the title has its fans and, for all its flaws, deserves a place on the disc.”

    The whole thing reeks of laziness, the devs were too lazy to port more than two games and too lazy to put some effort into it.

    Konami is at fault there. They just wanted to do HD port of the games that have sold well on the PS2. Apparently Konami didn’t throw enough money to have the game developed properly and the team wasn’t didn’t manage their time better. Konami just likes to cut corners now.
