Konami seemed to have recently landed themselves once again in hot water after an image surfaced on the web by Reddit user ‘PopulusTrichocapra‘ showing to the world that the highly favorable P.T. demo had received some form of a secret patch and claimed the game to be ‘ineligible’ to play.
Many believed once seeing this that Konami had secretly been patching the demo in certain parts of the world to make it inaccessible to play for owners who have already downloaded it to their PlayStation. Leaving many fans to worry as Konami had, in a very similar fashion, made the demo unavailable to download from the PlayStation Store without warning around 3 years ago.
Though fear not! We have now received confirmation from the company who brought you the highly popular Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania franchises that all is not lost! Konami has quelled the many fears of PlayStation owners and stated that the now-canceled Silent Hill playable demo is indeed still… playable! Yayyy, you did something right guys! Gold star.
Here’s the official statement sent over to a number of publications”
“After our investigation, we can confirm that there have been no Konami or PlayStation Network (PSN) updates that would have affected or prevent access to the game.”
Many PC modders have attempted to recreate the creepy, poorly lit hallways of the horrifying limbo and capture the magic of the original demo, nearly succeeding I might add! Until Konami had to put a stop to all of that and send out a cease and desist letter to anyone attempting to remake what they had originally created, spoiling everyone’s fun and creativity in the process.
Though I hear another remake among the horizon has been reborn in the exact same form of the original and already garnering much attention. You can only stop so many, am I right? I suggest to all who are reading this and lovers of the demo to go to their settings on the PS4 and stop any form of automatic updates on it, just to be on the safe side.
Personally, I don’t want them getting any more ideas and start trying to take away a great franchise (that I thankfully am able to own a piece of) and then mould it into some highly monetised game full of micro-transactions and lazy game development… speaking of awful games, has anyone played Metal Gear Survive? No? Ok, that goes for me and the rest of the world then.
