Awesome! Even though Silent Hill HD is jenk, it’s my only way to play SH2&3 so I’ll have to get it digitally. Only £6-odd in the ultimate sale right now, a great time to get it.
Sweet!!!! Grabbing it this weekend!!!!

I cannot believe that Konami apparently wants to remind people of how badly they botched the Silent Hill HD Collection. Silent Hill 2 is one of the greatest games ever made but the version in the HD collection is so bad as to almost appear like intentional sabotage of an entire franchise.

Which, given Konami's actions for the past 7 or 8 years, isn't even out of the question, really. Either way, if you already love Silent Hill or you are thinking about getting into it for the first time, do NOT play the HD Collection. It is absolutely atrocious.

Might make me go back and complete Homecoming, one game (of many) I never finished.

If you think you'd enjoy a game similar to the first Resident Evil (with fixed camera angles and everything) or if you're a horror fan in general, then you should definitely check out Silent Hill 2.

Wouldn't have minded these getting full re-releases on Xbox One with new achievements etc.

Another game series in need of a remake, ala RE2, more than a remaster - the game was bloody terrifying when it came out and I think it could be again.
The only game that beats this is The Suffering on original Xbox

Any ideas why game caps can't be shared?

great, I was looking at theese last week, and saw only the awful downpour was availiable. Theese I will get though. what pisses me off though, the best silent hill the first isn't on the hd collection, it's just blasphemy. granted 2 was a psychological horror masterpiece but 3 wasn't.
Downpour was actually great... Idk what ur on. It's better than the Evil Within 2.

I picked up a physical copy of the hd collection for £1.99 a few weeks back so avoid the sale if you can and have a look for a copy in one of your game stores

Hd collection is cheaper digitally...
Its not a common game you can find anymore so its more expensive physical. 29.99 here in US at gamestop

The Silent Hill HD Collection was one of the few games I still wanted to become Backwards Compatible. I'm so happy right now!

I just kept telling myself I'd play these once they are backwards compatible. That day has come. And as it will be complete blind runs, can't wait to poop myself.

Shame we'll not see a true Next-Gen Silent Hill game, imagine what could be done with Xbox X and Silent Hill...

I hope I'm wrong really, would love to hear there's something coming, but with the cancellation of Silent Hills, all hope for that feels lost?

Silent Hill 2 is my favorite video game of all time. It's brilliant.
^^^^^^^
While I wouldn't say it's my absolute favorite, it's definitely in the upper echelons. I remember playing after nightfall with the lights off for maximum effect. Definitely well worth anyone's time, especially at the low pricepoint this week.
