gamescom 2014: P.T. Stands for Playable Teaser, No Deep Meaning to It, Says Kojima

By now, chances are you already know that the interactive demo “P.T.” is really an ingenious way of announcing a new Silent Hill game being developed by Hideo Kojima, director Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim) and stars Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), which is oddly titled, Silent Hills.

However, what you probably didn’t know was what P.T. stood for. In today’s live-stream for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Kojima fielded questions about his work, life and of course, P.T. While he couldn’t divulge much about the new Silent Hill game he’s working on, he did admit that P.T. stood for “Playable Teaser” and nothing more. There’s no deeper meaning to it, Kojima said via a translator.

In the same Q&A session, Kojima admitted that he thought the P.T. interactive demo would take at least a week to solve and not half a day. Also of note, Kojima said that both him and del Toro intended for the new Silent Hill to be a game that will make players pee their pants, but now, their new goal is to make people shit in their pants.

Lastly, Kojima revealed what the 7780s stood for when it was announced as the “developer” of P.T. The “S” stood for Silent Hill, while the number 7780 is the size (in square meters) of a prefecture in Japan that sounds like Silent Hill.

Did you play P.T.? How did you find it? And are you optimistic that Kojima can pull of a good Silent Hill game?
