Think you're a big Silent Hill fan? Well you might be, but chances are you've got nothing on Whitney Chavis, whose Silent Hill collection is so big that it's actually set a Guinness World Record.
The Silent Hill Downpour patch already released for Xbox 360 has finally hit the PlayStation 3.
It improves the game's frame rate, fixes the save game system (which struggled to auto save), exterminates bugs in the Homeless side quest and implements several other performance enhancements and bug fixes.
Downpour, developed by the under threat Vatra Games, launched in March but was quickly set upon by disgruntled fans upset at the performance of the game.
Vatra Games, the Czech developer of Silent Hill: Downpour, is in danger of being closed.
Konami has announced plans to patch up both Silent Hill HD Collection and Silent Hill: Downpour following negative fan feedback to the two recent releases.
The updates will fix problems with autosave in Downpour, and framerate issues and audio-syncing in Silent Hill HD.
"Players have voiced their concerns, and solutions to these issues will be fixed and launched in the coming weeks," read its announcement.
The follow-up to the respectably un-terrible 2006 movie adaptation of Konami's survival horror series Silent Hill arrives in US cinemas on 26th October, distributor Open Road Films has announced.
Namco racing reboot Ridge Racer Unbounded has swerved into the UK all-format charts in 21st place, one of several new game releases to miss the chart's top 10 this week.
Water way to go.
Another sequel, another developer: this time, Silent Hill's ended up in the hands of Vatra Games, a studio based in the Czech Republic. Surprisingly, the team hasn't done that badly in capturing that distinctive air of festering Americana that the series requires, setting this strange tale of escaped convicts and dark deeds in a convincingly backwoods world built from derelict diners and menacing police cruisers. Silent Hill: Downpour looks like a Norman Rockwell painting created while the artist was feeling a bit glum about things: the town hall is barricaded shut and there are smoking potholes riddling main street. Konami's queasy franchise always put me in mind of a cockroach skittering over a drugstore soda counter. It still does.
The story's not bad, either - or at least, it's enthusiastically told. Murphy Pendleton has a name that makes him sound like a kind of shoe (I appreciate that I made this point in a preview, but I haven't yet tired of it) and a face that suggests the presence of a young, smouldering Ted Danson. When the game begins, he's being moved between prisons after shivving a fatty in the shower room. Frankly, it's a mistake we've all made at times, and there are mitigating circumstances here, anyway: the incident was part of a combat tutorial.
That said, there are serious questions hanging over Mr Pendleton as you head into the early stages of Downpour. Who is this guy? What did he do to get banged up? What became of his family? Did their names mean that they all sounded like shoes, too?
Three separate Silent Hill titles all hit US shelves in March, publisher Konami has announced.
First up on 6th March is Silent Hill HD Collection on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which offers remastered versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3.
That's followed on 13th March by Silent Hill: Downpour, again for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It's the latest console release in the long-running survival horror series, and the first from new developer Vatra Games. Take a look at a trailer below.

As it prepares to launch the next game in the series, PES 2012, Konami said the football franchise continues to "uphold strong repeat sales".

Konami's rain-soaked survival horror.
What separates the good horror films from the really good ones? What holds the genuine shockers apart from the moderate spine-tinglers? I've been thinking about this - for at least two minutes - and I'm pretty sure the answer isn't sharks. In fact, I'm pretty sure the answer is something like ambiguity: a creepy sense of uncertainty, a little bit of leeway for your imagination to work its dark magic.
And the hits just keep on coming! Today we're happy to announce that Konami is bringing PES 2012 and Silent Hill: Downpour to Eurogamer Expo 2011.
