Silent Hill: HD Collection gets an elegant cover

Rely on Horror: "The Silent Hill: HD Collection may be getting some flack from fans due to its new voiceovers, but I think we can all agree that the revealed cover art is pretty damn nice." (PS3, Silent Hill HD Collection, Xbox 360)

Cause they want more money. Why else.

Unfortunately the voice acting is anything but elegant. I'll pass.
Ser  +   1287d ago
You act as if the original games had magnificent voice acting.
BrightFalls76  +   1287d ago
Not at all, I act as if they really messed up what was already a well established series because they were too stubborn to support the cast that made the original the hit that it was.
jc48573  +   1287d ago
or maybe the actor was asking for too much money?
BubbleSniper  +   1287d ago
compared to these voice actors the originals sound like oscar winners.
NarooN  +   1287d ago
How did they mess up the entire series by remastering two old-ass games and changing the voice acting? It's not even that big of a fucking deal, it's not like these characters were in every game of the series or anything. SH3 at least had actual good voice acting in it. SH4 was pretty cringe-worthy as well. Origins and onward had pretty good acting.

Nice. I was expecting it to be just the two original covers put next to each other.

Who knew Konami had it in them lol

Gorgeous cover art...
Looks even more suave than Rico Suave, and Rico Suave was pretty darn suave.

SICK! Probably will buy because of the art. I am a sucker for that crap.
BrightFalls76  +   1287d ago
Don't do it!
Ethereal  +   1287d ago
Yea I know. The voice overs are ehh, I am hoping they see the fans displeasure and add an option to choose which one they want.
tack129  +   1287d ago
I'd wait for reviews, they will determine if the new VAs are REALLY that godawful or if the issue was actually overblown.
gaden_malak  +   1286d ago
The original voices were god awful, it's not as if they are swapping the Three Tenors with Rebecca Black.
MasterCornholio  +   1287d ago
The first 3 silent hills in my opinion were the best in the series. I really want to get the collection, but only if the voice overs are good.
Inception  +   1287d ago
i'm sicked of standard cover art of HD collection
hope other devs follow this move with new art cover
not just put the old cover side by side and done with it

btw, day 1 baby!

I just can't...the new voice actors have put me off. The old actors wern't the best voice actors ever but when you get used to something and it changes....it just dosen't sound right, plus they sound even worse then the old ones.
phinch  +   1287d ago
Anyone know of a rough release date for this? ive heard september but im not sure

The other day on PS Home, this guy dressed in a pyramid head costume was begging me not to buy this. I've never played SH before, so I'm willing to take a chance.
Ser  +   1287d ago
Oh, just buy it. There are some Silent Hill fans out there that have boycotted anything Silent Hill ever since Team Silent left.

The games are great if you're into survival horror. Don't let anyone tell you any different.
Arsenic13  +   1287d ago
That my friend was a fanboy. Make your own mind. If you haven't already played these great games, the change of voice actors will be a good thing in your eyes. Only (some) old fans have an issue with the recasting
tack129  +   1287d ago
Ignore him. It's his problem, not yours.

If you want to buy the collection, buy it.
If you don't want to, don't.

Personally I haven't played Silent Hill 2 or 3 but I have played through Silent Hill 1 and 4 so in terms of VAs it's pretty moot for me.
Tunerboy8732  +   1287d ago
I like the cover art looks nice and simple but not overdone.

Why doesn't konami include silent hill 1(the original that started it all) in this collection? It would make sense, wouldn't it?. I have the ps1 hardcopy original and greatest hits versions and it is an excellent game. Silent hill 3 is considered the sequel to silent hill 1, so why not include silent hill 1 in this collection konami?.

Don't get me wrong as I am grateful that a collection like this is being released stateside, but konami released a silent hill collection before for the ps2(it included: silent hill- 2,3, and 4) that was not released in the states, and that did not even include silent hill 1.

I am curious as to what is the deal on why konami has never released silent hill 1 in any of their collections, especially since it was the one that started the silent hill series and would be only logical to include silent hill 1 in this collection since silent hill 3 is considered to be the sequel to silent hill 1 ?

SH1 is on PS store, that's why. Also it would be too costly and difficult to actually HD such a game.

These collections companies release are about HD-ing last gen games. Games that essentially could have been HD, but the tech wasn't there in the consoles yet.
bit-crusherrrr  +   1287d ago
I guess if they put one in the would have less titles to throw in the next collection, but just two games is abit of a piss take they could easily have put more games on it.

If i was running the show i think id do two collections.

The first would have silent hill 1 & 2, origins, shattered memories and the first movie in hd.

The second would have 3, 4:the room, Home coming & silent hill: the arcade (move & kinect enabled) and the second film in HD (so itd be out when the films done).

Both with loads of bonus features and artwork.

They said that if this one does well they would make a follow up Collection.
jc48573  +   1287d ago
Please, I don't want to see Origins in the next collection. I rather not see another HD collection. Well, if it was Silent Hill remake (anyone besides Vatra or Climax) plus Silent Hill "The Room," then I'm all in. Origins, Homecoming, and Shattered Memories can all be in one disc as part of the Climax/Double Helix Team Collection.

great cover , horrible voice acting
TheMutator  +   1287d ago
i mean the new voice acting!!!
postofficebuddy  +   1287d ago
As with the games themselves the cover is clearly influenced by Jacob's Ladder. Looks great, I can hardly wait for this collection.
ALFAxD_CENTAURO  +   1287d ago
Looks great.
DarkBlood  +   1287d ago
anybody know the release date? i know before it was said to be september 20th but i find that no where on the sites i been too
Braid  +   1287d ago
The series have always had great covers, even the PSP versions had gorgeous covers to look at. And this one again, comes as no surprise.
josephayal  +   1287d ago
ME2 cover looks better
Tikicobra  +   1286d ago
Why... why would you even compare these two...?

And the cover is cool.
Axecution  +   1286d ago

I don't think he was serious man. xD
danielle007  +   1286d ago
I like the cover. I'm going to get this game, even if I don't think it's necessary to change the voice actors, and I find it pretty silly that they would do this.
JAMurida  +   1286d ago
Does this collection come with 1,2 and 3 or just 2 and 3?
danielle007  +   1286d ago
Just 2 and 3.

I at least wanted 4 to be included, but .. nope.
ballsofsteel  +   1286d ago
silent hill 2 one of the greatest stories of all time
yamzilla  +   1286d ago
or just emulate it on pc in higher resolutions and with better anti aliasing than this "hd" remake will be.....lol...., can't even remake 8 year old games in 1080p/60 frames.....how are people still considering 720p native res hd....720p is so 2001

plus you can also emulate silent hill 4 which is not even in this collection.....they'll be selling that to you for $29.99 soon though, you suckers can just wait till then!

and origins for $19.99....ohhh and part 1, thats old so hey just give us $14.99.....oh and...shattered memories.....lol that'll be $24.99

or just get it on pc with better graphics for free if you own the originals....I save good console games so i can emulate them later, that's why I still have uncharted1,2, killzone 2, god of war 3, demons souls.....I probably will not ever play any of them except demons souls on ps3 again, but i will emulate the shit out of them in 2-3 years

Very nice cover.It would be perfect if it didnt have the two original icons on the right.
I'll get it hoping the new voice over wont bother me much.
clockworkrazor  +   1286d ago
Nice cover. cant wait to play these excellent horror games smoother and clearer graphics on my HD TV.
NeloAnjelo  +   1286d ago
Wow. looks nice. i love this franchise.
noxeven  +   1286d ago
I will get it just wish it came with silent hill 1 as well
XeNoStRatoS  +   1286d ago
Still a pity tho that this "collection" lacks the complete experience... Won't get it because parts I and IV are missing.
8BitSoul  +   1279d ago
Decent art, at best. It has a cheap reprint or re-release feel to it. Especially compared to SH2 & 3's original box art. There's so much excellent artwork both from Konami and fans out there, they really should have used one of those instead. I'd much rather prefer a black background with the logo slapped onto it...
