Silent Hill HD Collection gets PS3 patch

Wednesday, 11th July 2012 15:38 GMT By Stace Harman

A patch to fix numerous issues with the PS3 version of the Silent Hill HD Collection has been released via PSN, head through the break for the patch details.

A post on the Silent Hill community forum states that a patch for the Silent Hill HD Collection is available via PSN.

The patch aims to address issues caused, in part, by Konami having lost the original source code for Silent Hill 2 and 3, which led to the team working on the Silent Hill HD Collection working with incomplete versions during the remastering process.

The patch includes the following fixes:

  • Improved Frame rate
  • Voice Synch is greatly improved
  • Missing sounds have been fixed
  • Missing music has been addressed
  • Fog density issues are resolved
  • Other minor visual/audio improvements

There’s no word as yet on a patch for the 360 version, which was promised along with the PS3 patch back in April.

    why didnt they fix all that shit that they had years to fix before they released the fucking collection. after 2 releases of each game they couldnt fix that shit without it being nearly a year later? message to the developer: fuck you, you dont care. im off to slit my fucking wrists because of you

    #2 the fault is not for the studio that handle the job, the fault is in konami they sent this guys an unfinished version, therefore they didnt had the time to make the final game again, they did only work on the HD part, not in creating again the missing parts.

    They could have done what Bluepoint did, reverse engineering the orginal game.

    The fault is the producer allowing a broken release. The fault is the project director’s for being such an ignorant and saying “green lights” when the game was in such a miserable state. Gamers, DON’T BUY THIS PACK. Get the PC ones which work perfectly even on a Pentium D. If you have the PS2 or fully backwards compatible PS3 (even the software based will work with these games) get the classics or get the dust out of them. This HD Collection is a shame with no love put into it when developing. Such an uninspired, incomplete and noob piece of garbage.

    The producer and project manager listen to Konami. Studios make a game and Konami signs the check and also do their own QA testing to see when a game is ready. Konami clearly felt it was ready for release. This is not the studios fault but Konami for giving the studio an unfinished source code meaning the studio had to play catch up and not only that do all the HD upscaling.

    It all falls on Konami for giving the green light to release it at the state it was in.
