This week, Sony released a support page addressing a few of the exceptional concerns we had about the PlayStation 5 and in reverse compatibility. In there is a line I skimmed upon very first reading, and now I’ve returned and had a comprehensive rummage, I’ve pertained to a realisation: P.T. is safe for another generation.

The line in concern validates you can certainly move digital video games and conserved information from a PlayStation 4 to a PS5 by means of WiFi. You can likewise access PS4 video games on a PS5 straight from a PS5 extended storage drive.

I presumed this would hold true, however it was still terrific to see it in composing. And it got me thinking: it implies I can move P.T., the “playable teaser” Hideo Kojima and co created for the cancelled Silent Hills task, from my base PS4, where it has actually sat under lock and essential since it was delisted from the PlayStation Store, to a PS5 when I wind up getting one. And offered P.T. is not on Sony’s list of 10 PS4 video games that will not deal with PS5, I presume I’ll have the ability to play it on the next-gen console, too.

P.T. was pulled from the PlayStation Network over 5 years earlier, on Wednesday, 29th April 2015, amidst Kojima’s acrimonious exit from Konami and the cancellation of Silent Hills. It is no longer offered to re-download, even if you have actually downloaded the video game formerly, which is why PS4s with P.T. set up expense a premium on eBay, and why there are attractive fan remakes doing the rounds.

My base PS4 is not long for this world, I fear. It seems like an airport runway even when running Netflix, and it groans like a grandad getting up from a comfortable chair whenever I push the PlayStation button to change to the control panel. I fear for P.T., that the majority of valuable of scary video games. I have actually thought about backing it approximately an external drive for safe keeping however, truthfully dear reader, I have an illogical worry of losing P.T. while doing so. These sorts of things tend to take place to me.

Safe and noise. For now.

My strategy now is to move P.T. to a PS5 when I make the unavoidable switch, and I am quite delighted with that strategy. There I picture it will rest for another console generation, for 7 years, basically, up until the PlayStation 6 comes out and I do this all over once again. And after the PlayStation 6? Well, already I expect I’ll have the ability to move P.T. straight into my brain, and play it in my mind’s eye.

Try offering that on eBay.
