Final launch dates for Silent Hill HD, Downpour, Memories

Release dates for this year’s trio of Silent Hill games have been all over the place, but Konami sent along a note that clears everything up and seals the dates in stone … unless they change again. If you’re confused over which games are arriving on what days, worry not and check out these dates. 

  • Silent Hill Downpour: March 13
  • Silent Hill HD Collection: March 20
  • Silent Hill: Book of Memories: March 27

Konami is calling this the “month of madness,” but I don’t think it quite understands the irony of such a catchy phrase. After all, releasing three games in a series within the span of an already-packed month certainly is madness, and not in the creepy, guilt-ridden, that-monster-represents-my-sexual-repression sense. It’s just common garden insanity. 

I sometimes think Konami doesn’t realize there are other videogame publishers in the world and that this is an actual industry, not just one company’s personal hobby.
