I was going to wait for either Dale or Colette -- both of which are Silent Hill crazy, one of which is a musician -- to write about this. But both are on planes to Seattle for PAX, without Wi-Fi, and I just couldn't wait.
GameStop is offering an 18-song soundtrack CD for Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for those that pre-order the title. The soundtrack is composed by series regular, AKira Yamaoka, and promises to be awesome. Silent Hill and soundtracks for pre-orders have been a staple of the series, dating back at least to the Silent Hill 3 soundtrack I snagged back in 2003.
Troubling is GameStop's new ship date, November 3, which (if accurate) means the game may have been pushed back a tad. We'll check in with Konami to see what the situation is, but regardless of when the game hits shelves, good pre-order it remains good.
