Silent Hill Downpour Game Exclusive Content Code

Release Date: 30th March 2012 

Here is an explanation of how the code works.

During the first 3rd of the game (before the Radio Station), the player will encounter several lockers with a numerical keypad. These lockers will be distinctive in colour and may even have a Konami logo. The placement will be unobtrusive so that the player does not mistake them for an actual game puzzle.  

The player will use the numerical keypad on the locker to enter their code. Once the code is entered the locker will open to reveal the double axe. The nail gun will not be available in the locker but will spawn randomly throughout the game after the code has been entered at the lockers.

Below are descriptions of the weapons.

Nail gun
The clip can hold more ammo than the normal gun.

Tricks and Tips For Playing On Your Xbox 360

1. Time Limit 
Shut down your Xbox 360 console every 6 hours, this will prevent your TV from presenting you with a burnt image of what you’re playing. Always shut down using Xbox Dashboard.

2. Music
You can play music from your Xbox; though do not expect it to play as loudly as any exclusive music system. You can store music files by ripping music from a CD; it reads a wide range of discs, including CD-R and CD-RW formatted discs.

3. Batteries
Make sure you keep spare batteries close at hand, or invest in a Quick Charge Kit and keep spares charging at all times, to avoid running out of batteries in your wireless controller at a crucial moment. You can also get a Wireless Controller with a Play and Charge Kit which can come in handy.

4. HDD/defected signal.
Be careful when replacing your HDD at a friend’s house. Just click push the button at the front of the HD and then pull it gently. Also, to put it back in, slide in the back end first and then bring it down to its place until it makes a click sound. While doing all these, make sure you do it all gently. Also if when plugging in your Xbox at a friend’s house and connecting to different displays, sometimes a defected signal is output resulting in no display on the screen or a mere flickering screen. If this happens, shut down the Xbox 360 console and turn it back on with the Xbox 360 controller. While the Xbox 360 console is still in the process of booting, press and hold the ‘Y’ button followed by the right trigger (RT). The video settings have now been reset and you can continue playing.

5. 'Away'
If you’re playing with friends, or just don’t want to be disturbed, you can change your status with Online Appearance with the Personal Options Button. Choose ‘away’ or ‘busy’ or even offline mode to let people online know you don’t want to play just now.

6. Microsoft Points
Xbox will ask for you to submit your credit card details, which can make it easier to buy Xbox Live Microsoft Points. However once they have your details, it’s almost impossible to take them off and set’s you up for auto-renewal. Steer clear and just buy Microsoft Points from retailers instead. Most will e-mail you the code so no waiting around for delivery.

7. Wireless
You might not need to buy an Official Microsoft Wireless N Network Adaptor for wireless internet connectivity with the Xbox 360 console. If you have a laptop with Wi-Fi nearby simple open the Control Panel, Network Connections/Network Sharing, Manage Network Connections. Upon section of Local Area Connection and Wireless Network Connection, bridge connections after right-clicking.

8. Gamertag
When you use your Xbox 360 console for the first time, you got through a set-up process of where you need to name a profile for yourself. Choose this name carefully, as if you want to change it later, it will cost you! Choose something short and simple so that other people can communicate with your easier.

9. Look After Your Xbox 360!
Above all, look after your Xbox 360 console. Keep it clean, keep it dust free, and keep it well ventilated to avoid overheating. I recommend keeping it horizontal to avoid it falling over or possible wobbling/vibrating in game play which will also avoid scratching any discs.

Top Tips On How To Look After Your PS3 Console

1. Don’t smoke!
Any smoke near your console is bad for the laser and can stop games and movies working.

2. Ventilation
Keep your PS3 well ventilated, do not lie in on a carpet or rug, try and keep it at least 10cm away from your wall or other surfaces, do not cover it with a sheet and do not place your console on top of any other equipment like a DVD player or other consoles.

3. Liquids
It should go without saying, but do not spill any liquids onto your console, do not balance any drinks on it, or drink anything near it! Also condensation can also harm your console so avoid storing it in any well known damp areas.

4. USB
If you’re using a USB port that is sucking more power than 1 port can manage then your USB port is going to burn out. Think about buying a USB 2.0 hub with its own external power source so not too much power will be used from one of the USB ports on your PS3.

5. Dust
Trying dusting your console with a clean dry cloth as often as you can. Dust can be very harmful for your console so try keeping it clear of any, especially near the vents at the front back and sides.

6. Damage
Do not move your console while playing, not only could you scratch the disc but you can also damage the console. Never drop it, bump it, kick it or bang it as the shock whilst running can do a lot of external damage. It would also be good if you don’t do any of these things whilst it is not running as well.

7. Heat
Usually you will find it over heats due to lack of ventilation and a build up of dust – so if you listen to the above tips this hopefully will not be a problem, however if you do need to keep an eye on it I suggest putting a thermometer on the wall behind your console, and keep an eye on it – it should never go above 35 Celsius. I also recommend a PS3 Slim cooling and vertical stand. It increases the airflow and helps keep the PS3 cool at critical times.

8. Turn off correctly
Hold the PS button on the controller for 2 seconds and select Turn Off System, go to Turn Off System on the XMB under ‘users’ or you can hold the power button on the console for 5 seconds. Never turn it off by flicking the switch at the back. Be sure to save and quit your game before turning off the console.

9. Surges
If you’re not planning on using your PS3 for a few days then switch it off at the back to prevent any power surges. You can also prevent this from happening by buying a quality surge protector.

10. Hard Drive
Do not power down while hard drive is being accessed. If the yellow light is flashing, you must wait until it stops to power down, otherwise doing so will damage your hard drive.
