You’ve no doubt heard the troubled tale of Konami’s Silent Hill HD Collection. What should have been a relatively straightforward port of the PS2 outings off Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams and Silent Hill 3 was marred by several technical issues. Back in May, Konami admitted it lost the original source code, which meant the studio handling the port only had beta code to work from — which was riddled with bugs.
Following a swarm of consumer complaints on the likes of Metacritic and gaming forums, Konami has finally issued a patch that fixes “frame rate issues as well as audio-synching and other reported issues.” The clincher? This patch is only for PS3 owners of the title.
In a statement, Konami apologized to Xbox 360 owners, noting that plans to deliver a 360 version of the patch have been cancelled due to “technical issues and resources.” Any way you slice it, the fact that Konami can’t find enough time to fix a broken game for people that already forked over their hard earned money is really disappointing and infuriating.
