Silent Hill Origins Creeps Into Stores

First Silent Hill Title for the PSP Offers New Game Play, Storyline Enhanced Camera System And Updated Controls

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced Silent Hill Origins has shipped to retail stores in North America. Developed exclusively for the PSPsystem, Silent Hill Origins brings to North America the frightening and popular survival horror series with all new game play and a storyline set before the events of the original Silent Hill. Fans can experience this one of a kind game with updated controls allowing for more fluid combat and detailed exploration of environments.

"Fans of Silent Hill can expect a fear-inducing experience with Silent Hill Origins," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "We're adding to the mythos by revealing some secrets hinted at in the original Silent Hill and have added an all-new soundtrack from series composer Akira Yamaoka to the elaborate puzzles and chilling storyline that has made Silent Hill a hit for gamers everywhere." Reborn on the PSP® system, gamers take on the role 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.

Updated controls maximize combat, allowing Travis to 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. Taking full advantage of the PSP® system's graphics, sound, and portability, Silent Hill Origins sets a new standard in handheld gaming terror.

Silent Hill Origins is rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB and available for an SRP of $29.99. For more information, please visit www.konami.com
