Downpour for PlayStation 3 gets patched

The PlayStation 3 version of the Silent Hill: Downpour patch has arrived in North America. Many PS3 owners were wary of Konami’s “soon” announcement–rightfully so when looking back at the HD Collection–, but it’s now available for download on PlayStation Network.

The patch weighs in at 33MB and fixes the same problems that were patched on the Xbox 360 version: framerate lag, autosaving issue, the homeless quest, and many more tiny things. It’s a small update but if you’re like me and playing the PS3 copy for the first time, expect to have a really fun twenty minute install; something I hope will be a thing of the past once the PlayStation 4 comes around.

Let us know in the comments how effective the patch is for you. I’ll update this post when I receive confirmation that the patch is out in Europe.

Update: The European PS3 patch is also now available. Sorry folks, the patch is not available in Europe by traditional means. The person whom I asked was using their imported copy. It seems an imported copy calls for the update while  PAL copy does not do so, yet. Sorry for the mistake. We’ll all have to wait and see when the patch will officially release in Europe.

  • Finally.

    It took you 20 minutes to install? Weird.

    • Game install it seems. Never played my PS3 copy. Still, such a long wait.

        Of course you never played it. You’re obviously an Xbox fanboy :b (just joking lol couldn’t help it) But seriously i think you’re refering to the full game install, because 33mb don’t take nearly that long to download on my PS3.

        • My PS3 takes too long for everything, for my taste. At least its services are free.

            Just got done with a playthrough. The frame rate is still shit. The autosave is….wait for it….still shit. The Homeless sidequest seems to have been fixed, at least it was on normal difficulty. Also, I got ending B, Truth and Justice, it has changed with the patch. The dialogue between Murphy and Anne at the site of the bus crash is now switched with that of the A ending dialogue, which is how I always suspected it should have been, even before Tom Hullett said as much.. By the way, I have the PS3 version.

  • I’m starting up my ps3 right now. Thanks for letting me know.

  • Well, I booted my PS3 at around 2:30 a.m. and it didnt take that long tried the intro sequence buuut I dunno if there were any improvements. Maybe it was me feeling sleepy, but it did feel kinda sketchy especially in the shower scene. Then I could be very wrong gotta check it out again.

  • It took you 20 minutes to install the patch? I hit yes for the patch to start downloading and went pee, when I came back the install was done already.

  • Hey! Thank you for the news! I was waiting that you update this post telling the patch is available in Europe too! It’s time to give it a try, actually I allready have 100% for trophies, but I don’t care, I will play again to see the improvements and tell you my opinion. See you soon in Book Of Memories when I beat the game once XD

  • No UK patch yet 🙁

    • Here in Spain either, why?

      • Is it REALLY out n europe beacuse everyone else says its not either

        • Cj says one friend of him in UK has the patch, how is that possible if you say is not? Something weird is going on, and I want the patch whatever it takes!

          • disqus_InjUF7PU9c

            Just put in my PAL version PS3 Downpour in and no update occurred.

          • I`ll try again tonight… damnit UK better get this patch we get everything last!

          • I’ll see with my friend. Not sure why he got a patch and others aren’t.

  • And I can’t tell if this patch even did anything, I’m still having all the same issues I had before the patch.

  • giantbat

    The EU patch is available now. Just got it and have installed–now ready to give it a go.
