'P.T' can return to your PS4 if you know the right tricks

When Konami cancelled Silent Hills as part of its broader retreat from top-tier video games, it was determined to burn bridges. It not only stopped offering the excellent P.T. teaser, but prevented people who had downloaded it from getting it again -- if you wiped your PS4, there was a real chance P.T. was gone forever. However, it now looks like there might be light at the end of the dark, creepy tunnel. A Gamexeon forum member has discovered that it should be possible to re-download the horror mini-game by installing PC software that lets you access your PS4 library through a proxy server.

It's not certain to work, and you may want to steer clear if you're worried that you might hurt your PS4 or get booted off of the PlayStation Network (there are no reports of either happening so far as of this writing). Also, as the library access suggests, this should only work if you already downloaded P.T. at some point in the past. If you missed out and are wondering what all the fuss was about, you're still out of luck. Nonetheless, this may be the gaming community's best shot at preserving a fond gaming memory that's in danger of disappearing.
