Here's something to make you feel like life goes by far too fast - It's almost 2 years to the day since P.T. got removed from the Playstation Network for good. That meant, even if you'd downloaded it previously, there was no way for you to get it back if you decided to delete it.

FeatureDead and live: Silent Hill's strange afterlife

Yamaoka's concerts showed that the fanbase is alive and kicking, even if the series isn't.

I don't know how we got here. A sense of expectation as thick as fog hangs in the air of this hot, dark room. Not for the first time, I wonder how this is happening. How it is I am here, shoulder to shoulder, with my people, waiting, watching a cyclical stream of digital faces - faces I feel I know better than my own - flickering across the screen.

FeatureSometimes I wish more games were just a vertical slice

Always leave them wanting more, not less.

Sega is cutting cheques for consumers who felt Aliens: Colonial Marines was wildly different to the marketing videos used to promote it, but while that particular battle is over, the war of words between the publisher and Gearbox Software, which developed the game, certainly isn't. This week brings fresh squabbling to light. The respective parties presumably wish they could just dust off and nuke the whole sorry episode from orbit.

Watch P.T. mashed up with The Stanley Parable's narrator

"I'm getting weirded out by whatever this place is."

Ever wonder what Kojima Production's first-person horror teaser P.T. would look like if it were narrated by that charming omniscient voice from The Stanley Parable? Well wonder no further as YouTuber it's a mirage has made a video of just that.

P.T.'s craziest Easter egg translated

"They are here on our Earth."

Our Gamescom interview with Sony's Shuhei Yoshida.

It's been a fantastic year for Sony and the PlayStation 4, with a whopping 10m consoles sold. But there have been bumps along the road.

The Last Guardian remains missing in action years after it was announced. It's been in development for so long it's becoming a bit of a running joke.

There's also the issue of the delay to Evolution's racing game DriveClub. It was once due out alongside the PS4 in November 2013. Now, it'll launch almost a year later, going up against the likes of Forza Horizon 2, Project Cars and The Crew.
