Just as a reminder, Twisted Metal will only be available on the PlayStation 3. It's another in a long line of top-notch exclusives; i.e., reasons to own Sony's machine.

But David Jaffe and Eat Sleep Play are aware that some people don't yet own a PS3. So, to remedy the situation – at least in regards to one lucky gamer – they've decided to hand out a PS3…no joke. After a fan asked Jaffe if the new TM iteration would arrive on the 360 (and we all know the answer to that), Jaffe decided to get into the spirit of giving. Thanks to Eat Sleep Play and Sony Santa Monica, Jaffe has arranged for the fan to get a free PS3; you can check out all the ongoing details at the legendary developer's Twitter page . So basically, someone asked if a certain game would be coming to their console, they received an answer they probably didn't want to hear, and the designer gave that person the console they needed. How freakin' sweet is that? Maybe this could be the start of a new trend. Maybe more developers should take the proactive approach and supply hard-up gamers with the necessary system, thereby decreasing the level of whining and fanboy idiocy. Talk about an act of charity that's good for the whole…

But don't expect Jaffe and Co. to do this more than once. I'm sure a lot of people are gonna try, though.

That pretty awesome. Although wouldn't you think if this fan was following the game he would know who the publisher is? I could understand if he was like 10 but if so what the hell is he doing on twitter anyway?

Yeah, you would think he's a diehard PS3 fan to be stalking these guys in twitter.

*Cough Cough* I wish Twisted Metal can be played on my Xbox 180 too *Cough Cough*

Judging from the bad spelling, I'm also assuming the guy is, at the most, 10 years old.

I bet that kid will prolly get twisted metal, beat it, and never use his PS3 again… I mean, I don't see why anyone shouldn't have PS3 by now… that's where all the AAA exclusives are at… So if that kid didn't have a PS3 already, it's most likely because he's 360 fanatic… Unless he's like 10 in which case he's excused because he wouldn't have money to get both systems although i'm assuming he's older

Yeah but you know it might also be because the guy didn't have an extra 300$ to fork for an extra console. Plus when you already have a system you are generally less inclined to buy another one since you constantly tell yourself… I already have that… Do I really need that? I'll miss a few titles but mine does a good job.

So I think what they did is great lol gona give Ps3 devs good karma.

You're so right. Since he doesn't have a PS3 yet he MUST be a 360 fanatic. Everyone has hundreds of dollars lying around to buy multiple consoles, right?

Good on Jaffe, but I'm still thinking….

If the kids just snother MS fanboy, then he'll probably sell it as soon as he gets it, just to only buy more 360 FPS's

I know the two 30-something box bots at my work would certainly do that.

What are you smoking!… Twisted Metal has always been a Sony owned franchise and has always been exclusive… So for someone to go and ask if twisted Metal is coming out for Xbox is like saying is Mario or Zelda coming to the PS3

A little tired of Xbots thinking the gaming industry revolves around them. I would have been less generous than Jaffe though only cause I'm a little tired and in desperate need of coffee at the moment.

How does someone asking if a game will be on the 360 make him a xbot who thinks the gaming industry revolves around him?

Because it was a stupid question that only Xbots ask. "drrrr! will this PS3 exclusive be on Xbox too?"

Because it's common knowledge that Twisted Metal has been one of the longest running Playstation exclusives to date especially for any "fan" of the series.

Indeed Jawknee. But judging by your thumbs down, some folks around here are just what you described.

SirLoin of Beef

All I read was that it was a "guy" who asked the question, not a "fan". So, how do you know this guy knew it was a PS3 exclusive? Could be he never had a PS console and hadn't heard much of the franchise and when he heard of it in the Q/A session being referenced, he wanted to know if it would be available for the console he had.

Then you need to learn to read more carefully.

"After a fan asked Jaffe if the new TM iteration would arrive on the 360"

I was referencing the tweet:

Sigh….why would a none fan be following Eat, Sleep, Play and David Jaffe around on Twitter? You're arguing semantics. Just because Jaffe said "some guy" doesn't make it wrong to assume the "the guy" is a fan of the game or of Jaffe and his work. Normally people don't follow people like Jaffe around on Twitter unless they are a fan in some shape or form.

SirLoin of Beef

Sigh… and you're just projecting your hatred for all things Microsoft onto some kid who asked a question about a game.

After reading some of the kid's tweets, he does say he loves the games. Still, that doesn't prove that he's some xbot who thinks the gaming world revolves around him. Loving the games doesn't necessarily mean you know they're console-exclusive.

LOL! ok buddy. What ever you want to tell yourself. Funny when ever people lose the argument they begin to attack the messenger.

I'm not attacking the messenger, just making an observation. And as far as "losing", how have I lost? You've not shown that he's an xbot who thinks the gaming world revolves around him.

Jawknee

I'll say it again.

It has been known for many years that Twisted Metal is only on Playstation. The only people who ask if Playstation exclusives will be on Xbox tend to be Xbots who think everything should be on Xbox regardless of the lack of quality. I can't prove 100% that he's a Bot. But I can "make the observation".

I've both sides of the argument, & I'll add my lil 2 cents.

Jawknee I understand where you coming from but SirLoin of Beef(weird name but cool) has a valid point with his argument(not trying to take sides). And yes people know that twisted metal is a long running PlayStation exclusive, but so was the DMC franchise & Final Fantasy franchise and look what happen, they're both multi-platform now, so I don't think that asking Jaffe about whether or not the game is comin to the 360 was a stupid or dumb question maybe he was hoping that Jaffe would do to Twist Metal what Capcom & Square-Enix with they're former long running PS exclusive Franchises.

I mean think bout it this way, If I use to have a PS2 wanted to upgrade but could only afford the an xbox, but also want a PS3 but couldn't afford one then wants wrong with hoping that some of the sequels to to games I loved playing through the PS1 & 2 era's would end up going muli-plat.

Yes, but you can't use that same argument, as Sony wasn't the IP owner of those said games, Sony owns Twisted Metal, the same way Nintendo owns Mario or MS owns Halo. It's going to be theirs forever, unless they go crazy and decide to multiplat them for money and lose the console flagships…ha

@Sirloin

There's plenty of videos of people (Usually on launch day) that wait outside a retailer, get their new item (360, Wii, PS3, iPad, etc) and then go outside to smash it to bits right in front of those that are still waiting in line. Why they do this I don't know but these jerks exist.

SirLoin of Beef

I don't doubt there are people out there exist who do such idiotic things. Was just wondering why it was thought this person would be one. Is it because he doesn't have one yet or he dared to ask if a game was going to be a 360?

There was an episode of Tosh.O that did this to an IPad. Apple sent him one to try out and he took it into the boardroom in front of all his techies and swung hit it with a gold club. Never even turned it on…but the bit was kind of funny…
