Figured this was a big enough news kinda deal, but sites reporting that even though people could re-download P.T from their libraries had they deleted them last week, they can no longer do so...

Gonna stick this thing on a flash drive...

Let the (real) absurd bidding wars for PS4s loaded with PT on ebay commence!

I can still play it. So you don't need a backup copy on a external hard drive if you already have it dl.

I am never going to delete it. Someday this may be very likely a 'rare' piece of Silent Hill history...


the rare part makes me sad.

I can understand removing a teaser for a game that will never be released from PSN, but eradicating it to those who downloaded but deleted it? This seems rather excessive. Someone high-up at Konami really hates Kojima, apparently.

I see so you can't even dl it anymore if you had it but deleted it. That's really pretty bad. I have it on mine a few other PS4s. I'm going to save it and wait until I can find a reliable way to store it on my PC or somewhere else. It's not that big of a file 1.3GB.

Yup, it's gone forever now if you didn't already have it on your HDD. It may be possible to back up though...

Konami no doubt wants to erase all evidence of a product it will no longer put out, and hence the heavy handed tactics.

I wonder if the Lisa decoy in Phantom Pain will still be there.

I'm hoping Kojima will include P.T. in as a 'nightmare sequence' so that it lives on somehow... :P


DO IT KOJIMA! :twisted:

^ That's a great idea! Not bad at all. But I doubt they'll use it.

I bet it's less to do with Kojima and more to do with Norman Reedus' likeness / contract stuff with Reedus that lead to this action.

That's what people were listing them as. I don't think anyone is actually buying them though. They actually banned people from selling them last I checked.

The PT will be preserved through the internet and emulators like so many other things. If people can find a way to preserve and restore Resident Evil 1.5, this will be no problem.

^If anyone still hasn't backed theirs up, I made a video on how to do that. Even if you don't plan to delete it, PS4s can break, hard drive errors can happen, etc. so I have mine on a flash drive now so I could always reinstall if I want to.

It's possible that they are still selling elsewhere, though. I wouldn't buy one even if I didn't have it and did have that kinda money to throw away, because I think it's also against the PSN TOS to transfer your stuff. I'd be afraid they'd deactivate my access to it anyway or something. The whole thing is insane anyway.
