As noted already, the original voice talent has been dropped for the upcoming Silent Hill HD Collection. When the news first hit, there was immediate concern among fans over the quality of the replacement acting.

Well, turns out, they were completely justified. One does not need to be an impassioned Silent Hill devotee to find the above rather lacking. One also has to wonder if Guy Cihi, the original voice of James Sunderland, finds perverse satisfaction with the new guy's abysmal acting chops, or yet another cause for frustration.

At least there's some good news: what was once a PS3 exclusive is now headed to the Xbox 360 as well. Which means hackers now have two options at their disposal; I've already heard grumblings that as soon as HD Collection is released, certain folk will attempt to replace the new audio files with ones from previous releases.
