Norman Reedus’ Silent Hills P.T. lives on through an easter egg in Metal Gear Solid V! Originally discovered by Arekkz Gaming on Youtube, P.T.’s radio report makes a surprising appearance. Unfiltered, undistorted, and uncensored. Without giving too much away for fans who recently purchased MGSV, the video below contains the easter egg in all its glory.

Silent Hills, originally a project between actor Norman Reedus, director Guillermo del Toro, and Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima was cancelled this past April. The cancelation was a result of a series of conflicts between Kojima Productions and parent company Konami. The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus was set to play the game’s lead protagonist.

P.T., the game’s playable teaser was removed from Playstation’s digital download store on April 29th, 2015. This time last year on September 1st, 2014 Sony had announced that P.T. had been downloaded over a million times in its pre-Tokyo Game Show press conference.

Silent Hills Petition

A petition on for Konami to move forward with the game’s development has 179,079 supporters at the time of this article. On July 26, 2015, it was announced Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima would be working on a new project together.

On May 30th, 2015 Xbox Head Executive Phil Spencer, put rumors that Microsoft was potentially investing in Silent Hills to arrive exclusively on the Xbox One to rest.

On August 13, 2015 Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer at Electronic Arts, was interviewed by GameSpot and asked about the Silent Hills situation and potentially working with Kojima.

“I’ve always liked Kojima-san. I got on with him during my days at Microsoft. I just think… what’s going on there… I just think both of them should kiss and make up.

From my experience, and I’ve spent a lot of time working in Japan, I think that Konami and Kojima will figure it out. Those kinds of business relationships [in Japan] are typically for life, and Kojima is such an important part in what has gone on there.

Clearly, they’re at a rocky stage in their marriage. But you could take what is said about [Kojima Productions], about a game not adhering to budgets, about a game not being ready, and you could apply that to a lot of people.” – Peter Moore in GameSpot Interview
