Silent Hill Origins, a prequel to the foggy survival horror series, has been rumored to be heading to the PS2 for weeks, but Konami finally confirmed the port in a press release today. "Console gamers can now expect the same chilling, suspenseful and fear-filled experience that handheld gamers encountered when we released Silent Hill Origins on the PSP system," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.

"Updated controls" are promised, but not detailed, nor is a release date given. Check out our review (http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3164211&sec=REVIEWS) of the PSP version for more info on what to expect from the PS2 port.

Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, meanwhile, was confirmed to be heading to the PS2 through a recent Playstation Underground email update (via Kotaku (http://kotaku.com/347314/ratchet--clank-size-matters-coming-to-ps2-officially)). The email evidently had no further details on price, a release date or any new features, but both GameStop and Amazon.com have it slated for March 11th, for whatever that's worth. You can check out our review (http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3157169&sec=REVIEWS) of Ratchet as well, and we'll pass on more information on both titles when we get it.

Very good news. Both good games that I wanted to play, but i really don't use my PSP much. Now I'll be able to play them on the big screen. And frankly, I prefer it that way.
