I remember the first time I played the playable teaser for what was going to to be Hideo Kojima’s Silent Hills game he was working on with master director Guillermo del Torro and ‘The Walking Dead‘ star Norman Reedus. It was a horrifying experience that was both a masterclass in suspense and abject horror, as well as an amazing technical achievement from both a graphical and a sound design standpoint. Now, I’m a coward of the highest degree when it comes to horror games so I was more than happy to delete P.T. from my PlayStation 4 and never download it again, but a lot of people were saddened by the game being pulled from the servers after the Konami debacle that led to Kojima leaving the company. It seemed like it would never be possible to redownload the teaser to relive the creepiness, but it seems like there still is a way to get it back!
This method was found out by the people over at Wololo, and it goes as follows:
1. Go to NETWORK settings > Set up Internet Connection -> use LAN/WiFi > Custom > Automatic > Do not specify > Automatic > Automatic.
2. Now you are on PROXY screen, choose USE and type your proxy IP address with PORT 808.
3. Complete the network setting.
Download P.T. (Silent Hills) on PS4:
1. Go to DOWNLOAD notification.
2. If P.T. download error was there, press OPTIONS then DELETE (if its not there, you are OK).
3. Go to LIBRARY.
4. Choose P.T.
5. DOWNLOAD P.T.
For all the technical details that are explained far better than I ever could, you can check out the original post’s page!
All in all, this is a win for players who will want to preserve a pretty noteworthy part of gaming history or for those who never got to play the game in the first place!
