A friendly face

Publisher Konami has forecast an 8th November release date for Silent Hill: Downpour in Japan. The title launched in Europe and North America earlier this year to a mixed critical reception. The game will release as a PlayStation 3 exclusive overseas, presumably due to the lack of interest in the Xbox 360 platform.

Silent Hill: Downpour depicts the tale of Murphy Pendleton, a convict who wanders into the infamous American suburb when his prison bus crashes. Needless to say, he doesn’t encounter unicorns and rainbows during his stay.
