Konami has announced today that patches are in the works for both Silent Hill Downpour and Silent Hill HD Collection. It will address a number of issues found in both games.
"Understanding the issues some users are experiencing, development teams are currently creating online patches for both games, which will fix the frame rate issues, the audio-synching in Silent Hill HD Collection, and the Auto-Save issues in Silent Hill Downpour," stated the publisher. "Players have voiced their concerns, and solutions to these issues will be fixed and launched in the coming weeks."
I didn't have much of an issue with Downpour, though the problems with HD Collection are well documented. I remain skeptical that a patch will drag that little bundle of sin up to par, but we can only wait and see.
