    And according to the new issue of Nextgen the extra level can be done in about 60 minutes, which is quite a bit different to the original estimate. Bah.

    That's cool it's coming out before Christmas though!

    Anyone who's played the PS2 version even vaguely interested?

    I was planning on getting this one, even though I did it already on the PS2. Reason: 5.1 audio!!!

    However; I just read that it's NOT going to be in 5.1 surround.

    For the life of me, I can't remember where I read it. I know it was on a release list and it showed what was in 5.1 and what was not. SH2 was shown to NOT be 5.1?!!?

    I can only hope it was a typo. If it's not 5.1, there's no way it's worth the purchase if you already did it on the PS2.

    I don't see anywhere in that review that states that the date has been pushed up Dec 19th.

    I own and have beaten the PS2 version more times than I care to mention (alright 8 times..I know I'm lame) and I am very much looking forward to this. The 5.1 sound alone is worth the pruchase[​IMG]
    The extra scenario sounds intriguing also. I hope they did push the date up. Im ready to shiver and shake with fear again[​IMG].

    Derrik,

    In that teamxbox review, they say:

    "The audio of Silent Hill 2 is best experienced by taking advantage of the 5.1 surround support."

    So although I have the PS2 version, I will be getting the X-Box version.
