First mentioned by Polygon's Russ Frushtick


And now people on Twitter are also confirming it is no longer downloadable


Guess you will need to pay 1000s of dollars on Ebay if you ever want to play the game!

Still some conflicting reports on this, but I would expect the worst.

Welp, that's going to make future upgrades a bit of a pain. If only one could time travel with a future mega huge SSD to not worry about it... but then I guess many would do the same damn thing to get the demo in the first place.

Also makes Konami look like bigger asses, but then I guess when you're either exiting console/handheld games or at least greatly reducing the number put out it just doesn't matter how many bridges you burn down in the process with that base: you don't really NEED the people you won't have as customers anymore to also be happy with you. Though that can blow up spectacularly on you.

This poor franchise is like a battered spouse at this point. It want's to do better, it just never can because it's evil spouse won't let it.

I have NO idea what Konami would gain by preventing people from downloading and playing this. Like it's not bad enough they've canceled the thing.

I can't remembered the last time there was a squandered opportunity that I had such an intense, physical reaction to. This fucking blows.

I deleted it since it really wasn't any good, but that kind of sucks. Would've liked to have it on my library as a rarity.

Just tried, it says I cannot download. I'm from the US btw.

I really regret not downloading it... I assumed it'd be like all other games on your DL list, but I guess I was wrong.

Fuck this shit. Fuck off, Konami. Here I was thinking I would be able to play P.T. when I eventually got a PS4. So much for that thanks to this shit.
