P.T. Was Available On PS5 For A Brief Amount Of Time
P.T. may go down in gaming history as one of the biggest letdowns, not because of the game itself, but because it will only remind gamers of what could have been. With the new generation of PlayStation around the corner, Konami confirmed that the playable teaser would not be on PS5, but it was until it quickly vanished.
According to GamesRadar‘s Leon Hurley (via Game Informer), P.T. was available on the PS5 for a brief period of time, and then it was removed. As some of you may already know, media members have been receiving the upcoming console early for review purposes, and Hurley reported that they were able to play the cancelled game on the PS5 until it was suddenly gone.
Following the removal of P.T. from the PS Store on PS5, Hurley reached out to Konami and Sony, with Konami telling them to “reach out to Sony about that matter.” Sony, however, seems to not have responded with an answer as of yet. In either case, it was once possible to bring the PS4 game to the new console, and that is no longer an option for whatever reason.
It’s unknown at this time what will come of the Silent Hill series, especially after the messy breakup between Konami and Hideo Kojima, the cancelling of Silent Hills, and the unavailability of P.T. A recent rumor points to a PS5-exclusive Silent Hill game being revealed next month at The Game Awards, but that’s one we will just have to wait and see if it’s true.
P.T. is currently available on any PlayStation 4 console that still has it downloaded. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
