There's a slightly fiddly way to re-download P.T.

Keeping the dream alive.

Ah, P.T. Hideo Kojima's wonderful "playable teaser" was designed to spark a new Silent Hill game starring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus into life. But despite being a wonderful game in its own right, Konami pulled it from the PlayStation Store after superstar designer Kojima split with the company and Silent Hills was canned.

That was that, we thought. Those with P.T. on their harddrives dared not delete the game, for fear it would be lost forever. But, it seems, the the P.T. dream lives on.

There is a way to re-download Hideo Kojima's claustrophobic horror game. Re-download, that is. If you failed to download it in the first place, you're out of luck.

The method, brought to light by, involves setting up your PS4 to use your PC as a proxy.

To do this, you need to download and install a program called SUWI. While you're installing SUWI, make sure to leave all the options ticked.

Then, download an IP Checker. Write down your IP address and boot up your PS4.

Go to settings, then network, then setup internet connection. Choose custom setup and select the correct network.

Then hit automatic for IP address settings.

Do not specify for DHCP host name.

Automatic for DNS settings.

Automatic again for MTU settings

Then hit use for proxy server.

Enter your IP address and set the port number to 808. Then hit next to complete the setup.

Now, you can go to your library, enter P.T. and set it to download. Huzzah! The dream lives on!
