This is so fucking frustrating. It's one thing preventing people from downloading it afresh - it's another to deliberately prevent people from playing something they love. I'm usually pretty quick to give Konami the benefit of the doubt, but this is such a shitty decision.

Konami has wanted PT buried from the beginning. Part of why I was so shocked earlier this year to hear they were talking with Kojima (though it seems those talks fell through and didn't result in anything from what people have said) is because of just how hard they went after his stuff when the break up first happened.

It's been a few years so just in case anyone forgot, they didn't just take PT down from the PS Store. They made it impossible to share play, which was super extra. Then they started trying to get ebay listings of PS4s with it on the hard drive taken down. Then they went after youtubers reporting on the situation. Right around the same time they wouldn't let Kojima accept a reward at TGA for MGS5.

I'm not surprised in the least they are blocking it from working on PS5. As much as fans have a hard time letting PT and the idea of Silent Hills go, Konami has had just a hard time letting it go in their own way.

It's a move that only calls more attention to the thing they are hoping to suppress, and on top of that it reflects badly on the company.

P.T. disappeared off my PS4's HDD after doing a firmware update once. Some other people reported similar things, though PS4 does have an, admittedly rare, issue where sometimes games entirely disappear from the HDD when doing a firmware update. In most cases you'd just download/install it again, so it might've been a freaky coincidence.

But anyway, given that nobody could download it, and even those who lost it largely can't get it again without a known trick. The people that have it left are also the ones who know the game is cancelled, so if Konami intended to avoid confusion about a cancelled project there was literally nothing to worry about so that excuse doesn't fly.

The most generous interpretation of it is that Konami does want to do something Silent-Hillsy, and wants to avoid confusion with Kojima's demo. So either that's coming soon, or they have a blank slot open to do it for which they are waiting for someone to step in and make it like the last gen titles (PS3/PSP/Wii/360).

But even then, this is just going out of ones way to sledgehammer a speck of dust on the wall. Konami are just the worst. Hopefully Kojima just spills the beans one day after he's a completely retired old man about what went on in there.

Lol! Even Keighley's upset!
