No, no it's not impossible. Not at all. Really.
It's very likely that Activision's new blockbuster will top the 20 million sales mark, as Black Ops has already done. As Twisted Metal is only on the PlayStation 3, more than 1/3 of the PS3 owners on the planet would have to buy it for the impossible to happen. That's the first big hurdle.
And here are some options for overcoming the other hurdles:
— Put a crisp $100 bill in every copy of Twisted Metal.
— Charge $200 per copy for Modern Warfare 3.
— Tell Oprah to promote Twisted Metal .
— If you beat TM, you don't have to pay taxes for a year.
— If you play MW3 for more than two hours, your console will melt.
— If you buy MW3, the clerk gets to throw rolls of quarters at your head for an hour.
— Promote TM as a weight-loss product. Nobody will care if it doesn't make any sense.
— If you buy TM, David Jaffe will come to your house and play a game with you. If you buy MW3, David Jaffe will come to your house and take a sledgehammer to every video game system you've got.
Anybody else have some bright ideas? We have to make this happen. Just because it'd be funny .
P.S. In no way am I ragging on Twisted Metal, and in no way am I saying Modern Warfare 3 will be a bad game. If you can't find the humor in this, you take things way too seriously.
