There are a few as can be seen on my Reactions to PS Vita thread but not many. I should open a thread to get people to buy it and play with me!

The 29th doesn't make sense though. That's a Thursday, games are always released on a Friday in the UK (that would be the 30th)
If they're sticking to what a little birdy told me, it's because they plan on releasing the HD Collection in Europe on March 30th. You'll see if you look around the HD Collection no longer has a solid date. Initially there was supposed to be a two week gap between Downpour and the HD Collection over here - but playing coy for so long seems to have left them stuck with releasing Downpour on the Thursday and HD on the Friday. They really don't seem to know what they're doing these days.

So both Downpour and the HDC have been knocked back?

Yeah to the end of the month. Not sure if the HD Collection has actually been approved for the 30th but that's the chatter I've heard anyway. Typical Konami. Oh well at least it's not 6 months.

I caved in and got an import copy from London earlier. Hoping it's here tomorrow.

Import copy of Downpour? What platform? Also, I'm completely jealous and will have to kill you

I know it's not the kick in the face like the six month delay Homecoming suffered, but still, I was really quite hyped for Downpour at the end of the week

I don't have an Xbox anymore so got it on PS3. Supposedly it's a little buggier than on 360 though I often hear this kinda stuff, yet rarely experience anything of the kind.

In the past couple of weeks my anticipation for Downpour has went from 0-100 so yeah I feel your pain even if it's only a couple of weeks away. That's why I couldn't hold back on selling a couple of games I've barely touched to pay for it.

It has a lot of other good reviews, but IGN gave it 4.5/10, which is a shame. :/

Who listens to IGN in 2012? They're the McDonalds of videogame 'journalism'. Producing junk food for the brain en masse. The only reason people should care about anything they have to say is because they still have a stake in the monopoly of AAA preview copies. It allows them to tip the scales in favour of every major release and snub anything that isn't fit for mass consumption. Silent Hill hasn't been in that category for a long time so their review (an obvious extrapolation of their preview) shouldn't mean anything to anyone except Joe Blow Statistic - who wasn't going to buy it anyway.

Also..
