Forums - Sony Discussion - (UPDATE: FAKE NEWS) New patch reportedly makes Silent Hill P.T Unplayable

Update:  Konami denied this

Original:

Anyone see anything else about this? I have P.T., and I never want to lose it. Credibility of the source is unknown, but this seems believable. Is there a way to set updates to “manual” for an individual game?

I updated your title. I know its copied from IGN, but please avoid all CAPS titles.

For the question in the OP, I'm nearly positive there something in the setting that lets you turn off auto downloads.

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

Isn't DRM a beautiful thing.

We are basically in that era, physical means very little, besides maybe saving internet bandwidth. So many games require day 1 patches to playable, so many require later updates to unlock content.

Even with physical this is still just as easily possible.

This has nothing to do with digital. They could just as easily disable the ability to play it if it came on a disc. In fact it would probably be even easier.

The word you're looking for is "DRM".

Haha oops, sorry. I literally copy/pasted the title from the article on my phone. I’ll try to remember no caps!

It's only inevitable that this happens eventually. It's already like that on PC and I haven't had any issues at all with it. There are drawbacks to physical games as well especially those with children.
