These days, everybody wants to know what sort of "post-development" a team has planned. You know, for downloadable content and extra goodies.

And when it comes to a game like Twisted Metal , we all know what we'd want, if it were possible: totally new characters and vehicles. Well, the good news is that according to a bunch of new Tweets by David Jaffe , it's obvious that Eat Sleep Play will be working on exactly what we desire after the game releases:

"What's a fair price to ask for a brand new Twised Metal vehicle download post game ship?"

"Yeah, if we do DLC vehicles, they are not just skins. They would be whole new 'characters' each with 2 new special weapons, animations,etc."

"Not saying we would not do skins as well but we have not announced either. I was just curious 4 myself what a new TM car is worth 2 yall."

Oh man, use your imagination…they'd need to come up with something that fits in with the sadistic, freakish nature of the roster. Despite the classics – my personal favorite was always Warthog – there's always room for new characters/vehicles, and we can't wait to see what they come up with. A fair price? Hard to say…maybe it depends on how well the game turns out.

This is the kind of DLCs I'd buy! Not skins, avatars, or other cosmetic only DLC.

Sounds Interesting to see what DLC comes for this game, on the other hand I actually never OWNED a TM game before, I have played the one on the PS2 with a friend once and it was good, how good do you think this one will be?

I'd buy them if they were anywhere from $5.00 to $8.00. Any more than that, I don't think I'd be interested.

Even at 8 bucks a pop, he releases eight more as DLC and I'm spending another 60 dollars. Of course, Jaffe could bundle them and give us a discount on the bundles. Maybe a little discount for PSPlus members, sweeten the deal.

Looking forward to this game! When it comes to DLC, I'll usually buy any DLC on a game that I enjoy.

With car battle games like Twisted Metal, they really need to focus on a smooth framerate.
If the PS3 version can keep all the mayhem *and* lock in a smooth framerate, then this game is a winner!

Per vehicle, I think I'd only do $2.99. (yes, I'm a cheapskate…haha)

I dont want to pay for single vehicles. Gimme a pack of at least 4 and Im good to go. I would LOVE to have some old and new characters! Mix it up a bit and make it the Ultimate Mortal Kombat of Twisted Metal and have everyone in it!

Anyone remember the days when we used to get everything in a game when we bought it? I guess this is the future of gaming. Even Jaffe is talking about making DLC before a game is even finished..

Although I guess we did have a discussion a few months ago how the price of games hasn't really changed much over the years. Maybe DLC is the answer to not having to increase the initial price of the game. If you want more out of the game, it's your choice to pay for it. If you're happy with what your 60 bucks bought, then ignore the DLC.

I suppose the next generation of gamer will be lucky if they even see physical media. Everything from day one will be DLC and add-ons…

Just a thought about the vehicles though, Who wants to bet that we are going to see Kratos in a Chariot as a special DLC character?

Yes I hate when they start talking about the dlc before whe even have the damn game, funny how Jaffe was praised for giving a ps3 for free to a random twitter guy.

Right now, I'm more concerned about the game being good than the price point for any DLC.

It's funny how he has no problem asking how much extra we'd pay for something they plan on deliberately holding back….from a game not even out yet.

Depends on how many cars included?

1 car should be around $0.50-$1.00

A pack of 5 cars should be $3.99

I think that is fair pricing there.

It's only virtual data!!!!

I think it seems only fair that they plan this stuff out ahead of time. I think that each character should come with it's own storyline. If each character/car was an expansion it would be worth 5 bucks hands down if the game turns out well.

Cant these people advertising websites be deleted or am I the only one who finds it annoying? I come here to read comments relative to the subject matter, I dont wanna see people pimping their own website
On topic; tough one coz if we give him a price, that'll egg him on to create DLC at a price whereas if we dont play into his hands, he may till support the game but not charge for DLC
