Silent Hill HD Collection also coming to 360

Silent Hill HD Collection is now coming for the Xbox 360, after fan response to the previously announced PS3-exclusivity made Konami reconsider.

The Silent Hill HD Collection, previously announced as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, will be coming to Xbox 360 as well due to fan demand. The game is still due extremely soon, but the team is working hard to hit both platforms at once.

Joystiq reports that the announcement came from Silent Hill: Downpour producer Tomm Hulett during Konami's Gamescom 2011 press conference. In a video, Hulett said the fan response sparked the company to develop for both platforms, thus proving that complaining occasionally works. The developer is "aiming" for a simultaneous release on both platforms.

That release is approaching fast, though. The game is still officially slated for "September/October," giving them only a short time to complete both projects. We're betting they'll take advantage of the built-in breathing room and schedule the game for October. Perhaps late October, which just so happens to coincide with a spooky holiday. Imagine that.

The Silent Hill HD Collection includes remastered versions of both Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3.

          Got that wisdom already (I'm a shacker) but I meant what games are in the package & what upgrades they will undergo. I read about this way back when, saw it was PS3 only and just chucked any thoughts about it.

        I think an article was posted here months ago that said those forums' primary purpose is to let people feel like they're being heard- in WoW's case (the only one I played in that short list) devs pretty much did what they wanted, so I'd agree with that sentiment

      Sorry if this is a dumb question, but has anyone stated anywhere that this release will feature the restless dreams XBOX/PS2 GH side story with Maria?
