Konami Removes P.T. From PlayStation Store, Can’t Be Re-Downloaded
As we previously reported, Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro's Silent Hills has been cancelled, and P.T. has now been removed from the PlayStation Store. While many of us were thinking that users would be able to re-download the Playable Teaser if we were to delete it from our PlayStation 4, many unfortunate gamers are finding out the hard way that this is not the case. Since you can normally re-download a game deleted from your PlayStation 4's hard drive, many of us were expecting that you would be able to do the same for P.T. after it was removed from the PlayStation Store.
Courtesy of Polygon, this is what you'll see if you have P.T. deleted from your hard drive and try to re-download it:
There you have it folks, you can't re-download P.T., which is a darn shame. Make sure you don't delete it off of your hard drive if you want to keep it, because once it's gone, that's it.
Last week, Zauheni Zinkevich launched a Change.org petition hoping to save Silent Hills, which has acquired almost 115,000 signatures. Unfortunately, the rights to Silent Hills is owned by Konami, and Hideo Kojima is expected to be leaving the company this fall after the launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. All sources indicate that Kojima's in-house studio at Kojima Productions has been dismantled, and this was the team working on Silent Hills that also brought us P.T. Even if Konami was to continue development on Silent Hills, it would be with a different development team. Based on the studio's track record with the past 11 years of underwhelming Silent Hill games, it needs the involvement of Kojima or some other creative visionary to revamp the series.
