Silent Hill Downpour patch for Xbox 360 available now! (Update: EU Xbox update also out)

Silent Hill Downpour has finally received the first of two patches (one for Xbox and one for PS3). The patch has arrived on Xbox Live today. Rourke happened to stumble upon it while loading the game this morning!  The patch should contain fixes for the game’s stuttering, saving, and a host of other things. I will try and get my hands on a full list of fixes for both platforms.

So, now that the game seems to be fixed, who’s going to replay it? I know I will be. I have a Broken Silence article in mind and I’ve been holding off on replaying the game just so I can kill two birds with one stone. Part of me wishes that Downpour would receive some proper DLC, but it’s a bit too late for that. At least we can enjoy a much more smooth game.

If anyone gets the PS3 update or the Xbox update in other territories, let us know in the comments!

Update: Uh oh…according to Rourke, the patch has severely messed up his game save. Floating Murphy and a locked door that prevents Murphy from entering the showers, at the start of the game. Anyone else getting the same problem or new ones?

Update 2: Out of all the people that I have asked, Rourke is the only one with complaints. Phew, that’s good (sorry, Rourke).

Region Update : The Xbox update is also available in Europe.

  • Gonna just try my PS3 Copy and see what happens!

  • Finally haven’t played the game since beating it back in March. I honestly didn’t think they were going to deliver on this. I guess dreams do come true. I just hope it fixes the major issues I had with it and isn’t halved ass. I guess I’ll find out later tonight when I return to that special place.

    No PS3 EU patch yet. We usually get updates on Wednesday so I’ll try again tomorrow.

    • It should be. A friend of mine in the UK has got his.

      • luc

        So ps3 EU users are getting the patch now too?

  • OK, the patch works fine. No floating Murphy or locked door.

  • tigerspaw

    This is awesome news! Motivates me to go back and get the last of the Downpour achievements 😀

  • Xander

    I figured they might release the patch around the release of SH Revelation. I just hope it’s not only for the Xbox version.

  • Xander

    No US PS3 patch yet, it seems. I tried it myself.

  • lol

    Let’s get wet again!

  • I experienced the locked door at the start myself ( ) before the patch came out. The only way I was able to resolve it was to play the game on a friend’s machine, save to a USB stick, then transfer it to my own. Odd that someone should experience that same problem *after* the patch, but it suggests some kind of bug to me.

    Too late Konami. I sold my copy months ago :/ And why does this article only refers to the Xbox version? The PS3 patch isn’t up yet? I don’t get it. This article isn’t very informative for PS3 Downpour owners.
    (here comes the downvotes !)

    • Reading might help.

      We’re waiting on it.

  • ariessiren

    for as long as this patch was in development that just goes too show you how messed up the game was for it too take this long

  • No PS3 patch yet, at least no in USA.

  • I’d laugh if there no ps3 patch. Konami way of say sorry to the owners of xbox 360 hd collection. Unlikely bit i’d laugh.

    • ariessiren

      basically your an ass than right?

      • Lol was just thinking of the Konami recent track record ( broken games, delayed games). I own the Ps3 version of the game and I’d love the patch. I’ll just believe it when I see it.

  • Anyone know when the PS3 Patch is going to be release? I checked yesterday but nothing…

    • luc

      I emailed Konami asking about the patch:
      They answered:
      Dear Konami Customer,

      Thank you for contacting Konami Customer Support. Unfortunately, we do not have exact date yet for the release of the patch for Silent Hill Downpour on PS3 , but it should be announced soon.
      We again apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience and understanding.

      Best Regards,

    Silent Hill Downpour Patch is out on Xbox 360 its 3MB and it doesn’t fix much at all. the frame rate is still shitty and all that so i don’t see any improvements and since I don’t I’m not playing through this game again. today I put this game in the finished and bored as hell box

  • Despite the patch being released for the 360 I’m still experiencing horrible lag as well as issues with the “Homeless” side quest (The fishing rod is a no-show in the ‘normal’ puzzle location). Honestly it’s hard to see just what was fixed with the release of the patch. Is anyone else as disappointed as I am?

    • Still can’t find the fishing rod after the patch! =( did you find that?
