For those of you that still have Downpour, the installment of the Silent Hill franchise that was released in March, we have good news. Konami has released a patch for the Xbox 360 version of the game which is available now from Xbox Live. The patch supposedly has ironed out a lot of kinks that left many players disappointed at the games release.

The fixes include but are not limited to:

o Improved frame rate
o Fixed save game system
o Fixed bugs in “Homeless” side quest/mission
o Several other performance enhancements/bug fixes

The announcement of the patch coincides with Silent Hill: Downpour being available for purchased from Xbox Live Games on Demand starting October 30th for $39.99. We see what you did there Konami, fixing your broken things to make them more appealing when you put out a digital release 7 months later. There is currently a patch being worked on for the PlayStation 3 version of the title and it will be released within the coming weeks.

What’s the verdict: Is the patch too little too late?
