You can still download Hideo Kojima’s PT before it disappears forever

1 min read


Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Well maybe it’s time to add Konami to that list, because nobody and I mean nobody messes with the special K for reasons which cannot be properly verified outside of conjecture and hearsay! Whatever has gone down between legendary developer Hideo Kojima and publisher Konami, may never be revealed. And that publisher isn’t keen on allowing any of his concept work to ever see the light of day. Which includes Silent Hills, a game which has unfortunately been canned, along with its Norman Reedus simulator and playable teaser, PT.

And that’s because Konami has purged it from Sony’s PSN servers. Completely. That’s according to Kotaku, who found absolutely sweet buggerall trace of the demo that set tongues wagging last year. And that’s damn odd. Usually, even if a game is removed from the PSN storefront, it’ll still exist in your download history, ready to be downloaded again. After all, you did pay for it, and legal reasons and whatnot.

Now, even if you added it to your queue and were thinking of downloading it later to see what all the fuss is about like some tosspot named Darryn (Hey! I resemble that remark!), that option is gone, gone, gone baby. The thing is,I am slightly exaggerating. Because this PT download issue? It’s most likely only going to hit you if you’re in the US of A specifically. I did actually have the game queued up to download, I really did. Here’s what greeted me when I tried to do so this morning:


And that’s because I’m using my South African account to do so. Remember, we’re on the European network, which only updates on Thursdays. So as long as you did own the game before and you’re in a Euro territory, you can still grab it before it vanishes for good – but you’d better hurry.

So before you rush off to eBay to go buy a PlayStation 4 that has the demo downloaded on it, it might be worth checking your region first.

        You and me both. When I did my wild things Kodak film was still all the rage (for the kids out there film is to cellphone cameras as paper is to a tablet. (paper is what people used to write words back when typing was still in its infancy (writing is a form of typing but with long strokes of a device called a pen or pencil (a pen or pencil was a device used to transfer ink to a surface usually paper (ink ….. I just hit explainception))))

        There is a dance off video ala Starsky & Hutch of me somewhere… Luckily back then the camera’s were grainy and it happened late one night or rather early one morning! I still say that I won that battle, but my opponent took her shirt off and that was the end of the battle.

            I was ahead, and the crowd was into my moves. She takes of her shirt and the tide turned very quickly in her favour! Useless teenagers can’t be objective.
