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.
