Silent Hill fans and PS Vita owners were excited a few weeks ago when Konami announced that Silent Hill: Origins and Shattered Memories would be released for PS Vita via PSN. As the games were supposed to release today and didn’t, however, it’s become clear that the PS Vita announcement was a mistake on Konami’s part. The original Konami blog announcement title has been changed from “Two Silent Hill titles head to PlayStation®Vita!” to “Two Silent Hill titles head to the PlayStation Network!” Additionally, even though Konami UK tweeted out “#SilentHill Origins & Shattered Memories are coming to PS Vita!” they followed-up today stating “Regretfully the games aren’t available on PlayStation Vita we’re afraid. If this changes however, we will let you know!”
The final nail in the coffin was PlayStation Blog’s Jawad Ashraf confirming that the releases were PSP only a few hours ago:
We’re not sure how exactly this incorrect information was allowed to erroneously exist for so long and whether it’s an error resulting from a mistake from Sony or Konami, but what’s done is done. Hopefully nobody bought the game thinking they could play it on PS Vita, or else there may still be some fallout to come.
