Silent Hill HD patch out now for PS3, Xbox 360 version offers an exchange program

Konami announced that it would be bringing the Silent Hill series to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the Silent Hill collection. The game featured remastered versions of Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 with new voice tracks (Silent Hill 2 had the option to use the original track) and remastered HD graphics.

Sadly the final version was filled with bugs. Some caused crashes, others caused very long load times, voice tracks were mismatched for cut scenes and the list goes on. I even found myself dreading to continue playing the game for the review, since I got mad at the many times I had to restart my 360.

Eventually Konami acknowledged the problems and announced that a patch was in the works. After about 5 months, the patch is finally out but only for the PlayStation 3 version. Konami made the announcement the day the patch was released, but the Xbox 360 version patch was scrapped due to problems. Some 360 owners are left with a somewhat playable copy and others an expensive coaster.

Konami’s solution? If you email customersupport[at]kde-us.com, Konami will offer you a replacement for the 360 version from any game on this list while supplies last. The game needs to be bought before August 8th, and you will need to have a copy of the receipt.

Guess its tough luck if you don’t have the receipt.

Here is a list of games you can exchange your 360 copy for:
