LOS ANGELES--When Konami releases the Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders HD Collections this November and next year, respectively, Xbox gamers will for the first time have a chance to experience the highly regarded franchises. However, Xbox 360 owners hoping for a similar high-definition update with the Silent Hill HD Collection shouldn't hold their breath.
Konami has confirmed that the Silent Hill HD Collection will only be coming to the PlayStation 3 when it ships this fall. The package will include HD updates for Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3, which were originally released in 2001 and 2003, respectively. Konami has also added all-new voice acting, as well as PlayStation Network trophy support.
Konami also offered a smattering of additional details for Silent Hill: Book of Memories, which is in development for the PlayStation Vita. Though its release date remains to be announced, Konami said that the handheld title will feature an all-new storyline with a host of returning creatures from the Silent Hill universe. It will also include a soundtrack from composer Daniel Licht.
As Konami indicated at its VIP interview session earlier this week, Book of Memories will also introduce multiplayer to the Silent Hill universe. That experience consists of a co-op mode, where players work together to survive Silent Hill's treacherous environments.
