Hit Survival Horror Video Game Makes Much Anticipated Evolution from Handheld to Console With Enhanced Graphics
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced Silent Hill Origins has shipped to retail stores in North America for the PlayStation®2 Computer Entertainment System. Now, console gamers can now enjoy the terror and fear-inducing chills of the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) System game as well.
"Silent Hill Origins for the PlayStation®2 system gives console game lovers the same chilling, suspenseful and fear-filled experience that handheld gamers encountered with the release of Silent Hill Origins on the PSP system," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "PlayStation®2 system gamers will get the chance to learn more about the mystery and mythos hinted at in earlier Silent Hill games."
Featuring enhanced visuals for the PlayStation 2 system, Silent Hill Origins tells the tale of Travis Grady, a lone truck driver making a routine delivery when he makes an unfortunate detour to the mysterious town of Silent Hill. Players must help Travis escape the city's horrific inhabitants and unravel the mystery of the strange hallucinations from Travis' past, visions that have plagued him since childhood.
Throughout the game, Travis can use his fists, his wits and an array of weapons including a meat cleaver, pool cue and sledgehammer to fight his way through the nightmarish world of Silent Hill and face more than one possible ending.
The PSP System game was one of the highest reviewed titles for the platform, receiving high praise from media outlets such as GamePro, GameZone.com, Hardcore Gamer Magazine and PLAY Magazine.
Silent Hill Origins is rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB and available for an SRP of $29.99.
