Konami has decided that we don’t have enough Silent Hill in our lives. I think they might be right but I’m not sure that three (or four, depending on your point of view) separate Silent Hills in one quarter is the answer. I mean, how much terror can we take in such a short timeframe?
First of all, we’re getting the HD collection at the end of January. That’s Silent Hill 2 and 3 all polished up nice to look pretty on your HD console and big TV.
Next up, we have Silent Hill: Book of Memories. That arrives at the end of February when the PSVita launches. That’s two Silent Hill products, three games, four weeks apart.
Finally, March will see the release of Silent Hill: Downpour on PS3 and 360. It’s the next in the series, a proper sequel to the core franchise rather than a spin off. That’s three Silent Hill products, four games, in two months. Terrifying.
