SH0/SHSM and the vita…

I figured out why some people were talking about being able to play SH0/SHSM on their Vita (not sure if it works outside US). If you download the games to your PS3 via PSN, you can then turn on your Vita, go to Content Manager, and copy them to your Vita and play them. Apparently there was also a 72 hour window when you could download anything to your Vita, but I was not aware of that when it happened.

Are Silent Hill 0rigins and Shattered Memories coming to Vita, or not?

A week or two ago, the Konami.uk blog reported that Shattered Memories and SH 0rigins would be coming to the PS Vita via PSN.

Since then, they have changed the name of their article to remove the word “Vita,” and to just say they’re going to be on PSN. Here are both the links:

The original link said they were coming to Vita right there in the URL.

The new link says they’re coming to PSN, but they were already there.

The Vita one now redirects to the PSN one. I know that different regions sometimes have different things, and I’m in the US, but I can tell you for sure that both have been on PSN here for years. In fact, I temporarily misplaced my physical copy of Origins a while back and bought it again on PSN in 2012 (see below). I recall SHSM being on there a while back, too, but I didn’t lose my disc of that one so I didn’t buy it.

Notice the date of purchase in the above cap from my PS3.

If you search for either of them on PSN, they are both only listed for PSP.

I’m still downloading a psvita system update right now, but others have reported that they get the same thing on there: they aren’t available for Vita, after all. I will check again on my Vita later, but it looks to me like the news may have been a mistake, and they are not really coming to Vita after all.

ETA: They cannot be downloaded to Vita.

Origins and Shattered Memories coming to Vita!

According to the Konami.co.uk blog, two more Silent Hill titles will be available on Vita soon: Origins and Shattered Memories. It’s the UK site and refers to the UK prices and dates, but I’m assuming if it’s on there it will probably be available elsewhere, as well. I will be keeping my eyes open for this! Good news for people who don’t have those games, or that want to play them on a Vita.

This ain’t no spoiler free blog!

I live in the deep south. *laughs* (Kudos to people who get that reference!) After all these years I finally decided, since it’s hot as hell in here, to publish my contributions to the Silent Hill series fandom. I’ve been active in the community since 2005….

Purramid_head’s new blog on Silent Hill theories.

Kojima and a Silent Hill reboot?

RelyonHorror recently posted an article about Hideo Kojima being asked a fan question about what series he would like to reboot. He responded, “Silent Hill.” Bear in mind that this is not the same thing as Kojima announcing that he will work on the series, just that he’d like to. (I mention this because some people apparently misread or didn’t actually read the article, and took it to mean it was a thing that was definitely going to happen.)
