Man, the saga behind Konami and Silent Hills continues to grow. A couple of weeks ago it was announced that the company was going to be removing P.T., the playable teaser for their upcoming Silent Hills game, from the Playstation Network. That happened last week on April 29th. It was not available for new downloads, but it was still available for people who had previously downloaded it and may want to download it again.
If you didn’t download the game to your system then you are now completely out of luck.
has not only been removed from PSN for new downloads it’s also no longer available to be redownloaded by people who had “purchased” the game previously.
I checked my PS4 earlier and that is the case. I had gone online and attached the game to my account so that in the future should I ever want to download it I would be able to. When I went to my library it had been completely removed. A search of PSN confirmed it’s no longer available there as well.
This hasn’t happened often, if at all before. Any time a game had been removed from the digital stores it was still available to download for people who had purchased a license. This is a disturbing sign of things that could come in the future with games being completely de-listed and not available for people who’d legitimately purchased a game.
