Great price...$4 less than their recent eBay sale. In for one myself! And yes, the PS3 version was patched for all prior issues.

The above statement is a lie. Don't buy this game, it's terrible and you should not support Konami's laziness with your money.

Correction, most issues. But to go so far as calling me a liar? Seems like someone is jaded, from most likely paying full price at release prior to the patch. Perhaps you should direct your crusades towards more worthy causes?

In any case...it's currently OOS.

Just goes to show you can't believe everything you read. Part of the reason the 360 version wasn't patched was because it wasn't nearly as broken of a mess as the PS3 version was at launch. It didn't need to be patched as badly. That's not to say it doesn't have issues, but it still isn't any worse than the PS3 version, post patch. Both ports were bad.

Yeah... they did the same thing with the ZoE HD remake. PS3 version is atrocious and they refuse to fix it. I've asked them by email a few times and they confirmed they won't do anything.

All true. ZeroUnderOne is correct as well. The assumption that Konami would prioritize all titles with the PS3 as the lead console is erroneous.

They sent their HD collections to be handled by third parties who used their preferences. The Metal Gear Solid HD collection had the PS3 as a lead console and is very much competent.

I support both consoles and have the 360 version of SH and the PS3 version of ZotE. Unfortunately, Konami is not consistent to say the least.

I order it at $19 as well. I just asked newegg if they would price adjust it for me and they said normally they don't but they would for me this time. So, thanks for the heads up OP!

Nice. I ordered it from ebay I doubt they would do it for me.

Was finally going to bite on this despite hearing it was a mess and despite me owning both PS2 versions, just for collection purposes and maybe to see what the trophies have you doing. Kinda surprised to hear its OOS considering how shitty everyone says it is.

OK, I missed out on this sale again.

At the very worst, I'm holding a copy I got from BB for $29.99. With Silver membership, I have 60 days to PM online retailers. :)

The patch did not fix the issues...

These games have worse graphics than the originals (the new lighting sucks, and removal of fog exposes certain things you shouldn't see... makes the graphics look worse), different voice acting, different music, sound glitches, the script was changed in a few parts, the aspect ratio is messed up for certain cutscenes, one particularly important cutscene got cropped badly, there is slowdown, random crashing, etc.

Here's a quick comparison to show you how "wrong" things look without the fog where it should be:

Strongly recommend people buy the original versions of these games on PS2, Xbox, or PC.

Especially for SH3, since the new voice acting in HD Collection is awful, the script changes are unnecessary, the lighting sucks big time, missing graphical effects, music changed or removed, slowdown... Yuck.

Wow, thanks. That does look like arse. I'm glad I bought Darksiders 2 over this for 20 a couple weeks back. Kind of a shame bc I had wanted to replay with trophies, but the more I hear the less I want to bother.

Might've bit at this price. Even though I, already, bought the only 1 of the 2 I have any real interest in. Part 2 on PS2.

It could be, especially since you're a newcomer. The issues stick out a lot more to most fans, but not all. Some glitches or changes, like a lot of games, don't get noticed as easily or matter to every individual. Hell, some people seem to like the cleaner streets over the worn down, grittier look from the original Silent Hill 2.
