At their pre-E3 conference, Konami had a bit of good and bad news for Silent Hill fans. The bad news was that the latest Silent Hill game titled Silent Hill: Downpour has been delayed to winter. This obviously blows massive chunks as November is already chockablock full of AAA game releases.

On the flip side, die-hard fans of the series will be glad to know that both Silent Hill 2 and 3 will be receiving a major visual – and possible gameplay – upgrade in the form of a Silent Hill HD Collection. Platforms weren’t mentioned but we’re guessing it’ll be for both the Xbox360 and PS3.

And finally Konami announced a Silent Hill game for the NGP called Silent Hill: Book of Memories. Besides a name, we got nothing except for a quote that the game would be “taking the franchise places it’s never been before.”

All said and done, I’d say this is a good day for Silent Hill fans as Silent Hill 2 is supposed to be one of the best horror games ever made.
