    Is simply installing SUWI enough on the PC? No starting a program or activating something?
    My ps4 gets an IP address but fails the Internet connection each time. Resettled my internet. No change.

  3. It works fine the IP port needs to be 808 NOT 8080

  6. JustinCase says:

    Thanks in advance!

    Still working…just downloaded PT via this tutorial…

  8. Chris says:

    I played PT before but deleted it, I have the right account, I even still have a save file on my PS4. I wanted to re-download it now and followed every step of this guide, made sure the PS4 and PC are in the same network, I’m having no connection issues. But PT doesn’t show up in my library. What do I do wrong? I’m from Germany btw if that matters. Does this method work with a EU license or is it US only?

Mustakin uusiutuvia pitää kehittää (ja vauhdilla), samaa mieltä.

  10. Juaz says:

    So, you need to have downloaded the game for it to work, right?
    Is there any way to get P.T. on accounts who never got the game in time?

  11. Richard says:

    Can anyone confirm this works outside the US – EU? I got confirmation from a Russian account.

    I found someone that is willing to sell his Mexican account here in Mexico which includes the license.

    PLEASE HELP! I need to play this game!

    I will buy it, have the license and download though this.

  12. brando says:

    i did this and it worked until my wifi crashed and now it doesnt work… can anyone help?

  13. mike says:

    Doesn’t work now, gutted. Used port 808 and yes it’s in my library. Perhaps the files need to be reposted?

    • Jill says:

      Just did this today and it worked, though it sat at 0% for several minutes before the download bar started moving up. All I can say is double check that the ip address and port number are correct, and be patient.

  14. Burn says:

    Is there any risk of getting ban? After downloading i can remove proxy and play normally?

  15. Snowball says:

    I’d like to know if this trick is still working… In two weeks I will sell my PS4 (to PS4PRO) with that awesome demo inside and I’d like to be sure to download it again. Thanks.

  16. Dear Ali and FamilyI was so surprised to hear from Brian how challenging the year was ,health wise,for Randy. This considering the last time I saw him was about a year ago at one of the parties at Laurie’s and Randy was his outgoing and entertaining self. That is how I will remember him. Hope to see everyone soon. God Bless,Paul

  17. Verbal says:

    worked great, i now have it on my PS4 Pro. i lost it on my original PS4 a few months ago when switching HDD’s. Thank You for figuring this out!

  18. Snowball says:

    Finally, I tried yesterday and it worked. It took me 3 minutes to follow the steps, great tutorial.
    BTW I’m one of those that “bought” P.T. back in time so it is linked to my account.
    Thanks so much for the support.

  19. Mateus Kater says:

    does it get you banned?

  20. Ross says:

    Hey so I have set everything up but I keep getting the error of it cannot download. I have tried downloading and installing suwi multiple times and redid the proxy multiple times. It is showing up on the PlayStation purchased part of the library but not under the “all”. Would that make a difference? Thanks in advance

  21. Spencer says:

    Ok, how do I remove Suwi/Squid once I’m done using the proxy? There doesn’t seem to be any documentation for that, nor is there a listing in the Windows Applications.

    Enhorabona cracks! quina enveja! jo encara no em veig capaç d’afrontar una prova d’aquestes, però veient les imatges i llegint la crònica, un s’anima! Caldrà entrenar la natació i la bici! A veure si per la propera ja tenim les fotos amb les equipacions Com diu el Roger, NPC està on fire!

  23. Braindamage says:

    It works!
    Thank you very much!

  24. Foo says:

    This worked like a charm! Using A mac with an XP VM. For those having issues – check your network settings particularly if you are trying over a VM. Great work

  25. snipem1438 says:

    Still works beautifully! Just make sure if you are having problems to turn on network sharing on your adapter so the PS4 can piggyback off your PC.

  26. haloboy says:

    I am still having trouble getting this to work. I download SUWI, check the IP and set my PS4 to that IP and 808 Port. Then I click on P.T. from my “Downloaded” section on PS4 FW 4.08 and it just keeps taking me back to the “Overview” page with no download option. I enabled network sharing and disabled the firewall. Nothing seems to work for me 🙁

    • Johan says:

      Have you disabled both your Windows firewall and the built-in hardware firewall in your modem/router?

      • haloboy says:

        Thanks for the response. I have disabled all firewalls. Hosted the Suwi PC and the PS4 on the same LAN network. Enabled network sharing and tried to enter the network information manually. I DID find that I cannot ping SUWI and if I type in the proxy server on the web browser it says “connection refused” with SUWI on the top left.

  27. Api says:

    I’ve tried this many times now but it just doesn’t work. I’ve turned of Windows defender and the Windows 10 firewall, as well as the firewall in my router. Could it be the router somehow blocking this..? I’d really like to redownload it after I had to format the PS4 HDD!

  28. YOURFACE says:

    It worked like a charm, thank you so much for this tutorial! 🙂

  29. Andrew says:

    Does anyone know if this method works if I have an EU psn account with the license and a US region PS4 pro?

  30. Matheus says:

    How come there is no P.T. on my library? If you don’t downloaded the game, it won’t work? Man, I’m so excited to play it again. Thanks in advance, guys.

    • Andrew says:

      When you login to your psn account on a computer, does P.T. show up under “purchased”? If so then this method will work. If it isn’t under your purchased items then you must have used a different account the last time and this method will not work.

      • Matheus says:

        Andrew, I strongly think this isn’t for me, pal. I played P.T. on a friend’s PS4, at the time I didn’t even had a PS4 myself, so, no, there’s no record of P.T. on my PS4, cause when I could afford to buy my console, the game wasn’t avaiable anymore.

        • Drew says:

          Ah, gotcha. Yeah man it’s not going to work then. It must be in your purchase history to both download it with the proxy and also to boot it up on the console.

  31. andy says:

    so i was entering my public ip, not my ipv4 address lol, the ipv4 can be found in run > cmd > ipconfig. good luck!
