    Actually it should be just «XBOX Live», not «XBOX Live Arcade». But, anyways, great news! These issues were a major letdown, that spoiled my experience. Looking forward for the patches.

    Finally, a patch!! I feel that Silent Hill 3 was affected the most from bad Frame-rate and of course, the sync (Not sure how bad Silent Hill 2’s audio sync was because I use the original VO). Now all we need is a second patch to fix all the stupid glitches in Silent Hill 2 and add the fog back in ^_^

    This is a step forward though.

    Silent Hill 2 plays tremendously for me on the PS3 since the last patch. However, Silent Hill 3 still suffers from frame rate dips and Heather will run sluggish with or without armor on in certain areas so it’d be great to have that fixed. Other than that, I don’t know what glitches you’re referring to, but SH 2 played fine for me and the fog was still present just not as dense in certain areas; I personally like that it’s not in my immediate viewpoint so I can appreciate the game’s landscape, but still it manages to shroud the town in mystery all the same.

    Nice. I don’t get on there a lot but when I hear it is up I will hit the place and see what gets fixed for the HD :)

    I guess they would not consider adding the fog back would they

  7. avatar Alchemist says:

    Hmmm now i might consider buying the HD Collection. Unless it causes more Problems, which Patches somtimes do (I hope not, though). And YEAH for making the idiotic Auto Save Function better, as well as fixing the Frame Rate Issues in Downpour. Even though i still can’t forgive Konami for letting this happen in the first place(No i don’t blame Tomm at all, i blame the People in the Tuxedos aka The Higher Ups.)

    i hope they address the frame rate issues in Silent Hill Downpour. My first playthrough was hell. Nearly every door i went through there was about 4-5 second of heavy lag afterwards. Which makes me not even want to play through it again for the trophies im missing. If i knew it was like that i wouldn’t have bought it.

  9. avatar Greguemok says:

    Please a patch for Downpour frame rate and microfreeze!
    It would be a master piece then! Really! You have to make this patch, Downpour is so great… and so beautiful… but so laggy…
    Thx by advance!

    Any news on these patches? I’m waiting to see if it fixes anything before purchasing either title.

  11. avatar required says:

    I hope the patch (Downpour) will actually deal with the performance issues and not just fix a sidequest bug or two.

  12. avatar Whitney says:

    @beyondtool – No new info on the patches yet.

  13. avatar sintaki says:

  18. avatar Monty Almighty says:

    Sooo anymore news on this patch?
    Still waiting on it!
    I have already completed the “Silent Hill HD Collection” and “Silent Hill Downpour” but would love to play through them again but with less bugs.
    I had no problems with “Silent Hill 2″ what so ever ((Best ame ever!)).
    But “Silent Hill 3″ had some major Frame Rate issues when using the unlimited Ammo submachine-gun and “Silent Hill Downpour” had the awful lagging when going through doors and save points. :(
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release the patch soon and fix these problems! :)

  19. avatar kenny says:

    Will the patch ever be released? I stopped playing Downpour, without functioning autosave thete’s no fun in this game for me. As a true fan I am really disappointed. Back to playing sh1.

  20. avatar Whitney says:

    As far as I know it is still coming out. I just don’t know a date :( Hopefully soon!
