Silent Hill Origins confirmed for PS2

Silent Hill OriginsLast week, we posted a rumor that Silent Hill Origins was coming out on the PS2. At the time, only retail and rental sites showed the new product, while Konami was mum on the subject. Today, though, Konami has sent out a press release confirming the rumor.

"Console gamers can now expect the same chilling, suspenseful and fear-filled experience that handheld gamers encountered when we released Silent Hill Origins on the PSP system," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami. "This is their chance to learn more of the mystery and mythos surrounding Silent Hill that’s been hinted at in earlier games and made the series such a success."

There’s still no word on what (if any) changes will be made to the PS2 port, other than the mention in the release that the controls will be updated to maximize combat. In other words, instead of the absolutely abysmal PSP controls, we’ll likely go back to the bad-but-not-broken controls of the classic Silent Hill games.
