I am playing Silent Hill 2 from the Silent Hill HD Collection available for the X360. Simply put, I can't find a way to save or to quit to the main menu.

Now I have played similar type of games before and some of them have fixed save points (like Deadspace). I am wondering if this one does as well. So far I haven't been able to find them.

There is also the question of quitting the game. How do I do that? I can't find it anywhere in the Start button menu.

Since I can't save, I've had to leave my Xbox on all day!

If this is classified as two questions, I am most happy to split this into two separate question threads.

Really no one knows? – deutschZuid Aug 8 '12 at 20:49
It usually takes a few hours at least to get an answer to a game that isn't Skyrim or Diablo or Portal around here, but answers usually do come. – GnomeSlice Aug 9 '12 at 18:40

Save points in Silent Hill 2 look like red pieces of paper - - heres a list of where they all are.

Straight from IGN: "You may notice that there is no "Quit" option while playing Silent Hill. Maybe you want to go back to a previous save, or maybe you want to play a different file. There's no "Load" option either! Press and Hold the four shoulder buttons, START, and BACK simultaneously to return to the main menu of Silent Hill 2 or Silent Hill 3.

However, if you want to go back to the Silent Hill HD Collection menu to choose a different game or different set of voices, you'll have to completely quit out of the game and restart it."

First result on google, c'mon man. Try harder.

Thanks for the answer. Just for your info, I found the answer right after posting this. I just wanted to see if anyone would post an answer. By the way I have tried this method to quit, but it hasn't worked for me (by the four shoulder buttons, I assume it's LB RB LT RT.) I will try again tonight, maybe I didn't do it right. – deutschZuid Aug 10 '12 at 0:24
Let me know how it goes/if you find a way to quit!! – twgoff Aug 10 '12 at 13:36
I got it. I misunderstood IGN's instructions. I thought they meant - hold down the four shoulder buttons, hit start then hit back. No no. It's 'hold down all six of the buttons.' at the same time. I edited your answer slightly. Hope that's ok. – deutschZuid Aug 11 '12 at 0:52
