I'm not trying to bash Konami, Devin S. or Tomm Hulett,, but what the heck is going on with the HD Collection? I mean, the patch didn't do anything - didn't fix the stutters, slowdowns, the out of synch VO's, didn't change things graphically nor improve its special effects like dumbed down fog. Even an install of 4GB needed to install it to your HDD (which I'm playing on PS3) - let alone PS2 games??? Usually that doesn't bother me much, but really?!?
Not only that, but Pyramid Head's iconic cutscene has been edited and was okay to see after all these years until now? See the differences right here in the links below:

I mean, having that scene edited would've caused an uproar anywho, but the fact that a rather unknown developer like Hijinx Studios "remastered" these 2 games and became worse than they should've been really throws me off. Like many have said, Bluepoint really should've done the job, but what happened? Why weren't they involved with this one?
I love Silent Hill with a passion and continue to support the classics that are in these collections, but this is really a shame
I hope this gets addressed soon. I'm not sure if it'll be just me seeing this happen, but maybe there should be a recall of some sorts or bring in Bluepoint to help out right now and collaborate with Hijinx or step in from where they left off to get things working and get a patch going from this point.
