DAMN! First off it sounds sick ass hell (aka tight as *beep*)...The story line just makes it seem more like a freaking movie instead of a game, although that alone makes it creepy...Even though I've never really like Silent Hill slow game play, I've always liked the way the Franchise sticks to it's dark/cloudy/misty/mysterious type settings.

The Screenshots look amazing, obiviously it will be 'beefed' up graphically for XBOX so I'll will definetly try it out. Thanks for the update on this title.

I've loved the Silent Hill games. Very dissappointed we didn't get Silent Hill 3. I don't think it sold that well on PS2 so maybe Konami just decided not to bother. However it sounds like this may be a multi launch which would be very cool.

Why do we get 4 and not 3?

I think they should port all of the versions for people like me who havent played the PS2 ones.

I liked 2, but it was way too short for me. Probably give 4 a rent before buying.

I just loved the subtitle of this game. 'The Room', it sounds creepy, mysterious and damn right scary. I think that Silent Hill is the scariest game ever! Can't wait. Thanx Substance snake.

Im with you on that one, It was really short, but you could play through again with new things, but it just wasnt scary knowing what was going to happen

I'm not getting the 4th since I've never even seen the 3rd play... Why arn't/havn't we got the 3rd, yet we're getting the 4th? Maybe they'll bundle them together or something.

I played the first and second Silent Hill games on the PS2 and loved them both. My only problem was the shortness of the second one. When I finished, my game clock was only at around 8 hours. And from what I've heard the third was even shorter. Lets hope the length gets a boost for the fourth, cause everything else looks great.

Here's what I found at a PS2 forum (the first and last one I will ever go to.) I don't know if their is any truth to it, I will keep looking though.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sounds like a Xbox port of Silent Hill 3 with enhanced feautures or a compilation of all three games for a bargain price for XBox and PS2
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



No, it isnt....SH4: the room is a full fledged SH sequel...no way is silent hill 3 going to xbox...ill give u the main reason:
konami wrote specific code just for the PS2 hardware, this is why it looks so damn good...making it for the xbox, or even porting it over, would mean Konami would have to re-write every line of code again...doubt they'd wanna do that...

it kinda sucked missing out on silent hill 3 but the next one will probably make up for it.

You think those look good? I differ in opinion, alot. As well, Silent Hill 2 on Xbox had nothing over the PS2 version graphically.

I agree that the graphics arent up to the xbox standards but they worked well enough for me to get into number 2. Nice sig btw.

wow. that is such an understatement. Silent hill 2 for xbox was rezed up like crazy over the ps2. It was no halo or splinter cell, but the game was definalty not ugly. Everything was there, from bump mapping to refelctive textures. the game had a grainy look to it on purpose, but im sure you knew that merimac. ( that wasnt sarcasm, i saw your nomination).

I know graphics wise, your the guru around here, but i strongly disagree on that statement.

Oh, and SH4 the room looks really, really good! the story line could be a good movie from what it sounds, bu then again SH2's story line was bizzarely amazing! i think they were really good.
