Silent Hill: Downpour was patched for Xbox 360 in late October, but the PlayStation 3 version has only just arrived.

Although full patch notes have not been provided, the update appears to have the same features as the Xbox 360 version, namely improved frame rate; “fixed” save game system; bug squashing in the Homeless side quest; and general “performance enhancements” and bug fixes. Silent Hill: Downpour released for both consoles in March.

Quick quotes: Akria missing from Silent Hill: Downpour’s soundtrack due to “Japanese business politics”
“I’d love for [Akira Yamaoka] to be involved. Unfortunately, he left Konami, and can’t do the music for the new games [which is] a Japanese business politics sort of thing. We’d like for him to be there, but he’s not. So we took seriously finding a replacement, because you can’t throw in just any old sound guy. So we found Dan Licht, who does the music on Dexter. He was actually our top choice, so we were fortunate that he was willing to jump in.” – Silent Hill: Downpour producer Tomm Hullet to GameFront.
