Silent Hill HD Collection delayed, still coming in March with Downpour and Memories

Silent Hill HD Collection has been pushed back two weeks from its March 6th launch date, Konami revealed in a press release earlier today. The compilation, which contains remastered versions of Silent Hill 2 and 3, will now land on store shelves March 20th — a long way off from its initial September / October 2011 launch window. For those of you keeping track, that means the latter part of March will bring us three straight weeks of new Silent Hill releases, with Silent Hill: Downpour scheduled for March 14th, and Silent Hill: Book of Memories due out March 27th. Regardless of how much you may be looking forward to this absolute nightmare sandwich, we think we can all agree that, man, we're looking forward to a decapitation-free April.
