Silent Hill HD Collection coming in 'September/October,' first screens released

The first two screens of the PS3-exclusive ("for now") Silent Hill HD Collection have been released. Judging by these new screens of Silent Hill 2, the HD graphics do a much nicer job of rendering total darkness than the old PS2-era originals. Is it just our imagination, or is the game darker now?

The included fact sheet also specifies a release window of "September/October 2011" and identifies the developer of the ports as Hi Jinx Studios, the company responsible for Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgment.%Gallery-129099%

value of two games.
Silent Hill 2 follows the sad story of James Sunderland as he woefully enters the sleepy town by a
mysterious letter from his deceased wife. Seeking the chance to see her again beckoned by guilt and
remorse, he stumbles upon his these fears manifested through unseen evil and ominous characters leading
him to the asylum of another world. The fight against the truth that his wife has died, James must escape
