Silent Hill Shattered Memories and Origins coming to PSN

PSP favourites to see digital releases in near future

Konami will soon re-release the PSP versions of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Silent Hill Origins on the PlayStation Network.

Each game will be priced at £7.99 and will be playable on both PSP and PlayStation Vita systems, the company said Thursday.

Konami has yet to confirm an official release date for the games, only promising both will be coming to the PSN "soon". Pricing for the rest of Europe and confirmation of a North American release has yet to be confirmed.

Silent Hill Origins is considered a prequel to the series and features a truck driver named Travis Grady who enters Silent Hill to try and gather information on a young girl he rescued from a fire.

In CVG's review at the time, we scored the game 82% and said it "overall spices up the familiar format with a sprinkling of new ideas," branding it "the best Silent Hill game since Silent Hill 3".

Arguably more exciting is the re-release of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, the critically-acclaimed retelling of the original game.

Only released on Wii, PSP and PS2, Shattered Memories retells the story of Harry Mason as he explores Silent Hill in search of his missing daughter.

The game tracks the player's behaviour and creates a psychological profile based on it, which in turn affects how supporting characters look and act and ultimately decides which of the numerous endings the player receives.

It was also the final game to feature a soundtrack by longtime Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka.
