PS4s With Pre-Installed PT Listed on eBay for as Much as $1,800
PT will be removed from the PlayStation Store later today.
Konami's P.T., a "playable teaser" for the now-canceled horror game Silent Hills, is scheduled to be removed from the PlayStation Store later today. That means the free PlayStation 4 game is soon to become something of a rarity. Not surprisingly, then, some gamers have turned to eBay in an attempt to cash in.
As reported by VG247, multiple eBay auctions for systems with P.T. on their hard drives have popped up this week. Two are from users in the United Kingdom, who have each specified a £1,000 ($1,500) buy-it-now price (see the listings here and here).
A third listing, from a seller in the United States, comes with a pre-installed copy of P.T. (and five other games) with a current high bid of $319.
Yet another listing offers a PS4 with a pre-installed copy of P.T. with a starting bid price of $1,000. Pay $1,800, however, and it's yours right now.
It's not too late to get P.T. for free, as you can still head to the PlayStation Store here to queue up your download. Konami hasn't specified exactly when it will be removed today, but if you're interested, you may want to download it right away.
Silent Hills was originally revealed at Gamescom 2014 as horror game P.T., which was launched as a free PS4 demo on the PlayStation Store with almost no explanation as to what it was. Developer Hideo Kojima later said he wanted to make Silent Hills so scary that it will "make you sh*t your pants." He was working on the game with The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus and Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo delo Toro.
The forthcoming removal of P.T. from the PlayStation Store is just one of many storylines surrounding Konami. The Japanese publisher is reportedly in the midst of a power struggle with Kojima, who is expected to leave the company later this year after work on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain wraps up.
