P.T., the playable teaser for Silent Hills, has been taken off the PlayStation servers and is now no longer downloadable on the PlayStation 4; even for players who have added the teaser to their library before the game was removed from the PlayStation Store. Players who have P.T. in their PlayStation library and try to download the game will be met with an error message that reads "Cannot download."
We've tested the process on PlayStation 4, and the game is no longer downloadable even if you have downloaded it before. If the game is deleted from the library, it is now gone for good.
Publisher Konami announced in April that the teaser would be removed from the PSN store. The announcement was made at a time when developer Kojima Productions was in some upheaval, as GameSpot has been told that Hideo Kojima would be leaving the company following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. We outline the events that have unfolded thus far.
P.T. was removed from the PlayStation Store in late April. However, at the time, the playable teaser could still be re-downloaded if it was deleted, so long as it was added to a user's library. That is no longer the case.
Given that the teaser cannot be downloaded at all anymore, perhaps the number of eBay listings for PlayStation 4s with P.T. installed on their hard drives will increase. If you're wondering what the teaser was about and why it was awarded GameSpot's Game of the Month award upon release, check out our tribute to P.T.
