Surprise! Twisted Metal Coming to PS3

David Jaffe's Avatar Posted by

Man I love surprises!

And I ESPECIALLY love E3 surprises!

Thing is, in this day and age, it’s super rare for a game to surprise anyone at E3 anymore. There are just too many leaks. And the Internet makes sure those leaks travel fast and furious. From the moment the info first gets out to the time when the hardcore gamers know about it, you’re talking 12, maybe 18 hours tops. Many publishers have simply given up trying to surprise gamers at E3 because they know it’s just not possible anymore. But back in the day – when E3 first began – you’d walk onto the show floor and have no idea what new games and new ideas you’d find as you traveled from booth to booth. That sense of wonder, of discovery, of sheer surprise…it was total gamer joy. But these days that sense of surprise and discovery has all but vanished from the E3 experience.

Which is why when Sony asked if we wanted to close out their E3 press conference by announcing the new Twisted Metal AND asked if we wanted to try to keep it a surprise…well, we were thrilled! An attempt at a good, old fashioned E3 surprise? Hells yes, baby! Sign us up!

Not sure if you missed the press conference but if you did, you can check out the surprise announce right here:

We know this is going to be the best Twisted Metal ever released. 16 players online, 2-4 player split screen, amazing new game modes, helicopters, motorcycles, sports cars, all battling it out in highly interactive levels with all the skill, speed, and strategy you could ask for! It’s been a long while since the last console Twisted Metal was released, but we think the wait will have been worth it. We’re crazy proud of the new game and are looking forward to entertaining all of the loyal TM fans as well as earning many new Twisted Metal devotees with this title.

But the game is not done yet. We’ve got a ways to go so we could really use your help. The game is playable on the show floor starting now. So if you’re able to get into E3 this year, please come to the Sony booth and give Twisted Metal a play. And then please hit us back on our brand new Eat Sleep Play forums with your likes, dislikes, issues, changes, fixes, etc. Whatever feedback we can get, we are grateful for. Early user feedback is one of the key things that turns a game into a classic. And we want this baby to be classic!

Ok, so that’s that. Twisted Metal is coming on Playstation 3! And we could not be more pleased! Now we’re off, into the bowels of the Los Angeles Convention Center to see the sites, play the games, and hey, who knows, perhaps discover a few surprises along the way! Stranger things have

Great to be back ya’ll! We missed you!

This is one of my favorite video games of all time. I have been enjoying it for many many years now and I hope we also get a new PSP TM again too. I will be getting this day one and love the look so far. I am glad the level design is throwback to old school TM’s like TM2!!! Thank you Eat, Sleep, Play.

The internet is on fire about this announcement! Love how Sweet Tooth kidnapping is kind of like the Calling All Cars except you brutally let their rag doll be dragged by a chain. You saw the reaction for such a classic game making a come back. I would love to see these two franchises making a current gen come back:

Jet Moto
Colony Wars
Wild Arms

Well, I’m happy the game is finally hitting the PS3, because I do love the Twisted Metal games. But, quite honestly, since David just ignores his fans on his youtube channel and blog, I have a more difficult time giving a crap about his games anymore. I was once a hardcore fan of Jaffe, but, not really anymore.

Love the surprise at the end of the Sony’s Press Conference! Totally rocked the whole show and what a epic surprise as well!

Good job David, for denying everything about developing Twisted Metal before this announcement! ^^

I started with TM1, I destroyed cousins on TM2, Merked my friends on TM3, Crushed TM4, Had a blast on TM Small Brawl, straight *****d on TM:Black, soloed TM:Head On and now………damnit ty Jaffe, but I do have one thing to say to you…..

YOU LIED!!!!!!!!!! YOU SAID YOU WONT COMING! damn you and your great ass surprises o my god.

I’ve never fan-boyed about anything, but I still have every twisted metal game thats come out, and I have loved this game since the beginning, so please do not disappoint for the PS3! which, from seeing black on PS2 I have a great feeling you wont.

@ Carfaxkely09 :

I would agree with all the games being able to be purchased, my TM:Small Brawl sometimes freezes up (bought it off a guy when it came out go figure) but yea a bundle or something would be amazing.
