Silent Hill: HD Collection combines two classic spine-chilling Silent Hill titles to the PS3, for the first time ever, with enhancements including true HD graphics, offering new and old fans alike the opportunity to experience the early era of Silent Hill as a true genre-defining experience.

Originally scheduled for later this month (Jan. 24, 2012) product listings at both GameStop and Amazon reveal that the game has been pushed back until March 6, 2012.

Silent Hill 2 follows the sad story of James Sunderland as he woefully enters the sleepy town by a mysterious letter from his deceased wife. Seeking the chance to see her again beckoned by guilt and remorse, he stumbles upon his these fears manifested through unseen evil and ominous characters leading him to the asylum of another world. The fight against the truth that his wife has died, James must escape the lumbering demon Red Pyramid (a.k.a Pyramid Head) along with his mystified fears that have taken the form of living monsters within the haze that is Silent Hill.

Serving as a sequel to the original Silent Hill game, Silent Hill 3 centers on the forces of the demonic cult that spreads the insanity of the otherworld through Claudia, a cult member attempting to bring Harry Mason’s daughter, Heather, into Silent Hill. With a subplot and themes involving the loss of innocence and childhood, a web of intrigue is spun by Claudia with intentions to birth a new god.
