It was only a demo at the end of the day, but it really does feel like P.T. was one of the defining releases of the PlayStation 4 era. The short “playable teaser” – which Konami used to announce the defunct Silent Hills – went on to influence dozens of games, and its presence on the PlayStation Store was so large that the publisher eventually removed it. Many, then, have been wondering if the demo will play on the PlayStation 5.
Officially, the answer is no, and here’s what the Japanese company told Games Radar about the matter: “The content will not be available on the PS Store, so users won’t be able to re-download the content through the backwards compatibility feature to the PS5.” However, we know that it’ll be possible to transfer data from your PS4 to the PS5, and therefore if you still have the game installed on your hard drive, it may be possible to move the files across.
We’ll need to wait a few more weeks for official confirmation, but someone will surely come up with a definitive answer next month. Were you hoping to revisit P.T. on your PS5 at all? Don’t look in the bathroom basin in the comments section below.
