Taking down PT from PSN retailer was “an awkard dialog” says the one who needed to do it

Eight years after the Silent Hills demo first launched, the particular person answerable for taking PT down from the PSN retailer discusses what occurred.

We all dearly want we might have seen Hideo Kojima’s tackle Silent Hill (and clearly so does he), however sadly we probably by no means will, outdoors of any footage of PT that is presently on-line. PT was an extremely promising demo, and now as a result of its cancellation is not even downloadable for people who owned it at any cut-off date. And now the very one who had it taken down from the PSN has spoken in regards to the scenario.

At the time of PT’s launch, Pearl L. was Konami’s first-party lead, and took to Twitter to speak fairly brazenly about some behind the scenes occasions concerning PT, although has since made their account personal.

“Fun reality: since I used to be the [first-party] lead on the time at Konami, I helped get this product arrange on the storefronts, pretend writer and all the pieces,” tweeted Pearl L (thanks VGC). “And I used to be the one who needed to name Sony and ask them to take it down and block redownloads. That was a brilliant enjoyable dialog.”

Pearl responded to a commenter asking if the scenario was “awkward,” saying “Awkward is true! We’d already gone by lots to get it arrange, obtained numerous operational exceptions. And then so as to add the request to dam redownload? More engineering workarounds. It was thrilling to see folks hype about it and see the work repay! But in a means additionally not.”

Part of the preliminary thriller surrounding PT was that it was supposedly developed by a studio referred to as 7780s Studio, a pseudonym setup to cover the actual fact it was truly a brand new Silent Hill sport.

The complete scenario was extremely messy, and clearly led to Kojima’s departure from Konami to type his personal studio, the unsubtley named Kojima Productions. At least Kojima obtained his want to put Norman Reedus in a sport.
