Thanks, Gametrailers.

  • Malcolm Reynolds

    I believe this more than makes up for this issue.

    I see Silent Hill HD on the PS3 list which means you can switch the broken version of the game for the version that works.

    This doesnt help people who only own an xbox 360 but for them there are a ton of other options to choose from.

    I’m sure people will still complain though.

    • whiteferrero

      It’s a bit limited though. How about people that don’t keep receipts? How about people outside NA and SA? They’re pretty much screwed.

      • Adam Meadows

         Yeah. So, it depends on the retailer, you need your receipt and is only in NA and SA for copies bought before a certain date, and the offer ends in a few months. Not great.

        • http://moefx.wordpress.com/ barklight

          Oh well, at least KONAMI isn’t completely being a jerk. But still pretty shit though.

    • Locksus

      Yeah, well. For the people who bought the game and don’t live in Murrica, like me, this kind of sucks. I’m glad I didn’t buy the game (Thanks Jim Sterling!). 

      Why they decided to abandon the European and Asian fans is beyond me.

  • xMCXx

     Yeah, screw the rest of the world. GG, Konami.

  • Marco Tinè

    As far as I’ve heard, the developers were given incomplete source codes for SH 2 and 3, so they had to rewrite entire parts of those games in a pathetically short amount of time. The entire operation was a quick and dirty cash-in, something the fans certainly didn’t deserve, and it screwed up like this, too. What can I say? Never trust your passion when it gets in the way of spending your money wisely.

  • PrinceHeir

    oh my god they still have 

    Yu Gi Oh! Duelists of the Roses, Suikoden III, original Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance.

    these are rare titles O_______O

    though good thing i bought them new back then and still work to this day :)

    still sucks that the offer is only for US, i might get the PS2 Greatest Hits version of Silent Hill 2(includes the restless dreams from the xbox version)

    it’s the only SH game i haven’t got in New condition.

    i have LE Silent Hill 3 case that comes with the OST, and Silent Hill 4. all bought in sealed quality and been taking care of right now.

    coincidentally it’s the only SH game i haven’t played.

    oh well Konami, you really screwed the franchise to the ground.

    such a shame that Kojima Productions get to have all the resource they can get(which is good) but please try to spread that too other than them.

    Suikoden, Silent Hill, heck you even have freaking Bloody Roar franchise…

    so where’s all of that?!?!?!

    I hope the Konami branches in other parts of the world do something like this to. I don’t think its fair to not offer this trade in option to gamers outside of NA/SA.

  • rockman29

    I think they should just patch the thing. I hear the PS3 version still  isn’t great post patch. Very awful stuff Konami.

  • DrForbidden

    This definitely puts Konami in a much better light, but they still need to do something about non-American costumers, though.
