My demos of Silent Hill: Downpour didn't impress me enough to inspire me to buy it when it came out in March, and although I saw Silent Hill HD Collection in the store last week, I put it back on the shelf because I didn't want to replay two (admittedly awesome) games when there was a new one I wanted to play for the first time. So not having played either of these titles, I was unaware that there were glitches that needed addressing. But if you've been playing them and noticing the bugs, I've got some good news.
Today, Konami announced that it is working on patches for both Silent Hill: Downpour and Silent Hill HD Collection, and they should be released "soon." These patches should fix the frame rate issues, the audio synching in HD Colleciton and the auto-save issues in Downpour.
I appreciate Konami listening to player complaints and addressing them in a relatively timely fashion, but still... I miss the days when games didn't need quite so much patching. (Mostly because online downloadable patches weren't an option, so developers and publishers had no choice but to make sure their games were as bug-free as possible before release!)
