P.T., Kojima Productions’ playable teaser for its cancelled Silent Hill reboot, is not playable on PlayStation 5.
While P.T. has not been available to download on PlayStation 4 since April 2015, existing downloads of the demo on PlayStation 4 cannot be transferred over to PlayStation 5, nor is it playable.
But P.T. was playable on PlayStation 5 at one point. Both Polygon and GamesRadar report being able to play P.T. on PlayStation 5 in late October. But in the days that followed, P.T.‘s listing on PlayStation 5 changed to “Playable on PS4,” meaning that it could no longer be played on the next-generation hardware.
When it was playable, Polygon reports that P.T. performed on PlayStation 5 just as it did on PlayStation 4, with no notable issues.
According to Sony Interactive Entertainment spokesperson, the change to P.T.‘s backward compatibility on PlayStation 5 “was a publisher decision.” Konami is the publisher of P.T.
