Silent Hill compilation set for European release

Konami of Europe collects trio of PlayStation 2 survival horror games to launch alongside new movie; no American release announced for the package.

Traditionally, gamers in Europe have taken a backseat to those in Japan and America when it comes to getting the goodies. They routinely have to wait months to get their hands on the latest games and consoles, and the last time they played host to a global game machine's debut, it was the ill-fated Gizmondo.

While it doesn't quite make up for decades of playing second fiddle on game publishers' release lists, so far they are the only ones confirmed to be getting Silent Hill Collection, a package featuring the PlayStation 2 games Silent Hill 2, Silent Hill 3, and Silent Hill 4: The Room. The game will be released throughout Europe in April and May, depending on when the cinematic adaptation of the series, Silent Hill, hits local theaters, and it will retail for 44.95 euros (about $54).

Silent Hill is directed by Christophe Gans (Brotherhood of the Wolf, 1995's live-action Crying Freeman) and is set to hit American theaters April 21. When asked about the possibility of an American release for the Silent Hill Collection, a Konami representative said the company has not made any announcements about one.

For those of you who don't know, Konami does plan on remaking Silent Hill 1 with switching the protagonist to a female one. This was mentioned in an article in the magazine Fangoria. Which leads me to believe that quite possibly they're making the Silent Hill 1 remake based off the movie.

Wow. Games released over here first. But I've got to say, damn straight it doesn't "quite make up for decades of playing second fiddle on game publishers' release lists".

I already have SH 2,3,&4 I'd like it if a remake of SH1 were in the works for PS2

Why aren't they including SH 1? Is it because the movie is like the first game?? I already have 3 and 4 but not 1and 2>

I hope that they'll change their mind's & make the trio packages in north America available, But you must include "Silent Hill 1 " as well. Also, I can't wait for the movie to come out. The preview looks great although they put a female in the lead role. But what the hell, it's all good!!!

Awesome... Very good deal for the Europeans. This series is certainly the best 'survival horror' series. Biohazard / Resident Evil don't even comes close to being scary except for part one.

yup, where is the new silent hill!! Seriously I really liked the 1st but the second is the best. The 3rd one is also really good but the 4th sucks. I hope they will release the collection in North America!

UMM WOW...I think ill just go see the move...case silent hill 2 is good, 3 is OK..and 4 is allot like 3, ...and the combat system sucks...on all 3... all the silent hill games need the MGS-sub 3rd person camera...other than that its pretty much overhead city...

So, where's the love for SH1, the best game in the series? How can you do a compilation without including the game that started the entire franchise, not to mention how it ties into the other games, especially SH3!

SH1 remake is something that I can dig. I've played SH1, 2, and some of 3, and so far SH1 was by far my favorite. Demon babies, flying nightmares, nurses with their skin inside-out, blah blah blah... I'd love to see a remake.

Lol, the movie is probably going to rack up more money in the U.S. anyway, so why leave us in the dark on the compilation? I'm sure there are plenty of fans of the games that would buy it. Shoot, I didn't play all of 2 and I haven't even played 3 or 4, so I'd buy it.
