P.T. Completely Removed From PlayStation Store, Cannot Be Re-Downloaded
Update: Konami has confirmed that P.T. has been completed deleted from the PlayStation Store. "We already announced previously that the distribution period of the P.T. demo was going to expire on Apr.29th," a representative told us via email. "The reasons were that, P.T. was a playable teaser for a project that was being discussed with Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus. That specific project has now been cancelled. Konami will however continue to develop Silent Hill branded titles."
We haven’t had a chance to test this ourselves, but given that we previously reported that this wouldn’t be an issue, we’re sending up a red flag. A number of people have reported that P.T. is no longer available for re-download from the PlayStation Store.
P.T. was slated for delisting as a herald of the Silent Hills cancelation, news of which followed days later. The news regarding problems re-downloading first popped up on Twitter, but was then confirmed through extensive documentation by Polygon. Others have confirmed that, at least in North America, P.T. is gone for good.
Attempting to re-download the software reportedly results in an error. We’ve reached out to Konami for comment, and we’ll update should we receive a response.
For now, if you want to hang onto P.T. It’s going to live on that 1.37 GB bit of space already allocated to it on your hard drive.
We’ll draw straws in a bit to find out which of our PS4s gets to lose its P.T. forever. Given the extensive documentation though, I have confidence in the reports.
