“The weird irony is that, had P.T. simply remained available, the number of people who are interested in playing it likely would’ve stayed roughly same as the number of people who have it already. But that’s not what happened; instead, Konami introduced scarcity to the equation, and instantly made P.T. one of the coolest, most fascinating games in the history of our medium. As of this week, P.T. is essentially the first rare, collectible digital video game. That’s … kind of rad.Lisa Balcony smile photoLet me be clear: I hate, deeply, how Konami has handled the cancellation of Silent Hills. I think Kotaku’s Patrick Klepek nailed it last night when he ran the headline “Konami Sucks” — a headline that, in two words, summarizes how everyone who cares about this ordeal is feeling right now. Every single step of the way, it feels like Konami has made the most irresponsible, cowardly decision possible. As of this week, Konami has proven itself a company willing to go out of its way to actively destroy a critically acclaimed piece of art the millisecond it no longer financially benefits from that art’s continued existence. But believe me when I say there’s a silver lining: P.T., a game that most of us — even those of us who loved it — were mostly done talking about, is now more than ever a piece of gaming history to be treasured.”
