Silent Hill Downpour Release Possibly Delayed

Silent Hill returns for both Xbox and PS3 bring an all new story line for our favorite horror game. I don’t think the fans who enjoy psychologically disturbing games will be disappointed.  This game is a must have for freak show enthusiast so turn out the lights put on a gaming headset and get your spook on.
Silent Hill Downpour was scheduled to release Oct 25th and Amazon.com pre-order customers are now seeing a release date of March 2012. Konami Digital Entertainment has not released any information confirming a new release date. But if retailers are pushing back their pre-orders the game is most likely not going to release as planned. If Konami had stuck to their original October 25th release date, they might have taken advantage of the Halloween customers looking for a good fall thriller. Never the less, with so many new titles this fall I'm willing to wait a little longer to add this to my collection for the beginning of 2012.

Story

Murphy Pendleton has been incarcerated for several years, having had his sentence extended once already. Due to his history at Ryall State Prison, he is being transferred to nearby Wayside Maximum Security Penitentiary-but a freak accident cuts the journey short. Waking up in a forest next to the wrecked bus, Murphy has a clear shot at freedom. He makes his way into the sleepy town of Silent Hill where mysterious locals welcome him into a slowly developing personal hell.

Silent Hill Downpour is the latest Silent Hill game offering the familiar Survival Horror gameplay delivered in the most defined visual quality to date. The game also expands on the exploration theme of the franchise both design-wise and through psychological torture, ambient story, horrific enemies and self-evaluative questions of despair.
